What’s tiny and finely crafted? If Bluetooth speakers were the topic of conversation, one perfect answer would be Omaker’s M4 portable Bluetooth 4.0 speaker. Yes, this little beast sure beats with a big boom. Whenever I listen to songs through this speaker, I am somehow reminded of small babies that are tiny, yet commands like a king.
When the delivery guy handed me the box that contains my M4 Omaker portable speaker, I was surprised by how tiny it was. I knew it was going to be small, I ordered it for its size, too. I just didn’t expect it to be this small. When I opened it, out came the speaker and I got even more skeptical about the sound it was going to produce. Never have I been more presumptuous about a product as I have been that day. Though this model is still very popular you might like to checkout Omaker Nature which is the upgraded version of M4 with better sound driver.
Remarkable Sound Quality
I put the speaker on charge for a while and then paired it with my phone because I was dying to test its sound quality. I put the track “Highway to Hell” on and boy, I was truly taken aback! Not only is the sound crisp and clear, the volume goes up pretty high too. Well, not high enough for your neighbors to call the cops, but definitely enough to disturb your family members in the next room. I must mention here that if your primary focus is a speaker with a good bass, this one may not be the right candidate. There sure is bass, no doubt, just a little tight.
Great Battery Mileage
I have taken this speaker with me for a couple of times, earlier this year, when fishing season began. The battery life is commendable. Although I don’t make the speaker blare while fishing, I generally play my tracks on it while driving to and from the woods, and a wee bit while I look for the perfect fishing spot. In all of these trips, it has never died on me even if I don’t have full charge. I can confidently say that it runs for a good 6-7 hours, even though I am positive that it can last longer, I just haven’t used it for durations longer than that in one go. This certainly is a nifty little speaker!
Dimension and Weight
The speaker is just as big the back of my hand when I ball my fist up, hmm..maybe, I have huge hands. Anyway, the point is, it is small. It stands at 1.8 inches x 3.2 inches x 3.2 inches and weighs just 8.2 ounces. I have taken it along with me while snowboarding and my pocket didn’t feel heavy at all. The size and weight is definitely very travel friendly, and you can take it with you while trekking without the weight bogging you down or the size troubling you.

Listed below are some specifications of the Omaker M4 speaker worth mentioning:

Why I am I still Obsessed With This speaker?
I have been using this particular speaker for some time now, and so far, it has functioned amazingly. The unique appearance and the robust construction was definitely an appealing factor that made me keep this speaker. I use it primarily as an outdoor speaker and a shower speaker.
