The Sound Blaster FRee (not a typo, they’ve deliberately called it the FRee!) is a good looking Bluetooth speaker that offers a wide range of connectivity options.

It comes in black or white and looks great.  It’s made from plastic so doesn’t have the premium feel of some speakers, but still looks good in either position, it can lie horizontally or stand vertically.

Where the FRee differs from other Bluetooth speakers is in the range of connectivity options, as well as Bluetooth you have an aux in, USB (which can be used with a PC/Laptop) and a microSD card slot, meaning you don’t need to connect this to anything to play music.  The microSD option is especially handy if you want to listen to music but don’t want to drain your phones battery.

It’s compact design makes it ideal to carry around and it’s IPX4 certification means it’ll survive the odd splash if out and about or in the kitchen.

Sound quality is fairly good, the FRee can easily fill a room with music and, if connected to your mobile, will interrupt the music if you get an incoming call.  The Sound Blaster marketing team say it has a deep bass, but compared to other speakers this didn’t seem to be the case, however it has a respectable sound that would be perfect for a student room or when travelling around.

Good all round speaker that offers a great range of connectivity options.
