Review of portable acoustics of Geneva Lab Model XS
We did many reviews of portable acoustics for gadgets. I will tell, why Geneva Lab Model XS hooked on me.
Three years I used the mini-columns JBL On Tour. It is such being displayed box with an external food (or 4 AAA batteries), 2 tvitter and a quite good sound in the price range to $100. Here is how they look.
JBL On Tour
I always took these columns in various sorties on the nature, but I did not have enough loudness of loudspeakers and the built-in radio. At all this I was happy in the sizes: Dzhi-Bee-El could even be put in a jacket pocket. From time to time came to grasp crazy thoughts with itself "kitchen" Edifier IF 360, but it is to a meeting plus 5 kg of weight.
And here to me acoustics of Geneva Lab Model XS gets to hands. I will tell honest, I yesterday all day carried out with it in an embrace.
That these columns can
Play music on Blyutuz. Late films and games went to a course. Started Dead Trigger for a long time did not release from itself. To a meeting discrepancy of wires though the iPhone or an iPod can be connected through standard 3.5мм Jack disappeared.
Onboard there is a built-in accumulator on 2400 мАч. It very printsipno for me as I often go on shish kebabs. If to thrust a cord, together with playing there will be a charging. On how many it suffices – yet I do not know. But on one charging I saw yesterday 2 series of the House on Blyutuz, an hour and a half played in a shooter, and at present there is the 2nd hour as columns something scrape on a table.
There is a radio. You do not represent, as I like to listen to radio outdoors. For the sake of FM I bought a year ago touch iPod Nano 6G to attach in JBL. At present I have all – in – one.
It should be noted that for Blyutuz and a linear entrance the digital amplifier is used. For radio – analog.
There are hours and an alarm clock. For someone will be useful function. For me it is irrelevant.
In the combined condition
Touch buttons are highlighted. In the dark you will not miss.

The bass prevails, therefore lack of an equalizer was small disappointment. It is necessary to do it through iPhone functions.
Accessory very stylish. It is visible that the Swiss designers were delighted in due time a box from under the Russian razor of "Ayr" (joking apart). But, buying Geneva Lab Model XS, you overpay for everything described above a counter. This company in itself expensive also holds the reputation above an average. I made a start from that after the first 100 гр vodka outdoors becomes crystal a spotless sound is not so important, as the general mood. Besides, Geneva gives more volume sounding, than Dzhi-Bee-El, and on loudness so in general defeats.
The Geneva Lab company, which head office it is located in Switzerland, does modern electronic devices which are very simple in use. According to numerous experts (working in the field of industrial design, a fashion and huge technologies) production of the Geneva Lab company possesses more quite good balance on quality of work, simplicity, style and environmental friendliness.
– From a site of the producer
My summary such: Geneva Lab Model XS are quite good option for trips on the nature and giving. More technological portable acoustics I am powerful in 500 гр yet did not meet.
