The Qmadix iharmonix Q-i-sound Stereo Bluetooth Speakers are a set of A2DP speakers for your iPhone, iPod touch, iPad (or non-Apple mobile device) are different than similar offerings like the Jawbone JAMBOX in that each speaker comes in a separate housing so that you can direct your sound independently, in any which way you wish.

Upon opening the box I noticed what looked like a treatise on clicks and commands handily arranged on a reference sheet. Since I ignore instructions, I never looked at it. And I didn't need to. The Qmadix iharmonix Q-i-sound Stereo Bluetooth Speakers were easy enough to control, and since they're separate, I could easily arrange them to fit almost any area, including corners and cramped workstations. If you want sound where you want sound, that's a huge plus.

The Qmadix iharmonix Q-i-sound Stereo Bluetooth Speakers come with a decent leather-like carrying case that does look a little like a 1950s hosiery package, which was... disturbing. But it's convenient none-the-less.

The box also contains a charging cable, wall plug adaptor and a user manual that I will never look at either. Just plug the cable into the Qmadix iharmonix Q-i-sound Stereo Bluetooth Speakers and they charge, and their built-in lithium-polymer batteries hold that charge about as long as they claim -- 8 hours of play time, 240 hours of standby. It does take about 3.5 hours to charge them, however, so if you have a long trip or big party coming up, make sure to plan your charging accordingly.

The left speaker has a power button, mic, volume, and skip forward and back buttons, while the right speaker only has a power button to activate it.

Bluetooth setup is as easy as you've come to expect from iOS, and straight forward once you put it into discover mode by holding the power button for 5 seconds. They have the same range as other Bluetooth devices, about 30 feet, and the speakers themselves can be positioned up to 15 feet apart.

Now here we come to sound quality -- the Qmadix iharmonix Q-i-sound Stereo Bluetooth Speakers isn't bad except that there is quite a bit of distortion at high volume levels and there is no bass to speak of. That turns me off to these speakers.

Granted the Qmadix iharmonix Q-i-sound Stereo Bluetooth Speakers are significantly cheaper than the Jawbone JAMBOX, but we're living in a post-JAMBOX world now and we no longer put up with small sound from small Bluetooth speakers. Expectations have been set.

They have a mic, so you can have Qmadix iharmonix Q-i-sound Stereo Bluetooth Speakers serve double-duty as speaker phones for conference calls as well. As expected, they sound better than the tiny iPhone and iPad speakers both for telephone and for FaceTime and Skype.

The good

  • Right and left channels can be position independently
  • Easy to pair
  • Less expensive than competitors

The bad

  • Some sound distortion at high volume levels and bass isn't great

The bottom line

If you want separate speakers so you can position your right and left channels just exactly where you want them, the Qmadix iharmonix Q-i-sound Stereo Bluetooth Speakers are the ones to get. However, if overall sound quality is more important to you than a lower price or independent speaker placement, the Jawbone JAMBOX remains a better choice.

Bottom line, while they won't shake the house, if you want a fairly cheap, really flexible sound system for anywhere from the kitchen to the pool, the Qmadix iharmonix Q-i-sound Stereo Bluetooth Speakers willl do the trick.
