I joyfully recommend the X-Mini II Capsule Speaker -- it mostly lives up to my expectations and more. I was looking for a small-form speaker to test my techno mixes on (I'm a dance music producer, among other things) since many people have mobile devices and like listening to music "on the go" without the benefit of a really beefy, bassy system.

The unique design attracted me and after reading the many positive reviews, I ordered this. It was a fairly short decision and I hope this review will help others too -- I'm a big believer in sharing your experiences so others can benefit and save time (especially when it comes to avoiding shoddy stuff).

As you can see from the video, the sound quality is awesome for its size and specs. It gets a bit muddy in the treble and isn't going to be as distinct as listening through a good pair of earbuds, but it can definitely fill a small room. My wife has already found happiness using the X-Mini II connected to her iPhone while playing Plants vs. Zombies in bed (it's what we do) -- a big improvement over the built-in speakers! And for the iPod Touch's even weaker built-in speakers, I have a comparison at the end of the video so you can get an idea of the contrast.

My suggestion for the X-Mini III would be to have a longer USB charging cable, because I've ended up in situations where the audio cable was sufficiently long but the USB one wasn't... without an extension. Also, I don't know how feasible it'd be to have the X-Mini also function as an USB audio interface with a mini sound chip inside, but this could be useful in cases where your stereo miniplug output is fairly noisy.

Thanks very much to Arthur of Satechi for contacting me personally and asking if everything was cool, that kind of customer rapport rocks.
