Bayan Audio Soundbook X3 – Portable tooth Speaker With Built In FM Radio And NFC Pairing – Oustanding quality

I was given the smaller soundbook as a christmas gift because i wanted to take something on the road with me for work. It’s only tiny but the sound is superb for a small piece of kit. Impressed, i decided to invest in the larger bayan x3 for my apartment. The sound of this beast is truly awesome. Every time i play my tunes i get a grin across my face. The base is deep and powerful with the vocals clear and precise. It makes the hairs stand up on my neck when i play ac/dc – back in black.

Forget the rest go for the x3. Having used a friend’s bayan soundbook recently and having been amazed with the sound quality and the design i ordered an x3 immediately – bigger unit, bigger sound etc. When i opened the box and connected my iphone via bluetooth in seconds i was not disappointed. This solid unit packs a heavyweight punch and the quality is amazing, way better than other bigger and more expensive units. This is worth every penny and more. You will not be disappointed, i am certainly not.

An amazing bluetooth speaker. I have reviewed a number of bluetooth speakers over the recent past, and although each has had some positive and negative points, this without a doubt is one of the best that i have tested. I received an email invite from the manufacturers (bayan) to test this product. Having spent the past few weeks with it, i was very keen to get my thoughts out to prospective buyers who may be contemplating to purchase this speaker. Unboxingfrom the very unboxing, you know you are in for a high quality product. The packaging has a very apple-product like unboxing feel, with a minimalistic approach to the packaging and contents. Included in the box is the speaker itself, a 3. 5mm jack (to attach devices with no bluetooth capability), a charger and instructions. It is also worth mentioning that the out box itself is very attractive and would make for a great gift. Here are the specifications for the Bayan Audio Soundbook X3 – Portable tooth Speaker With Built In FM Radio And NFC Pairing:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Advanced audio compression technology for more detailed sound via aptX
  • Bluetooth 4.0 wireless technology for maximum compatibility
  • FM radio with integrated aerial
  • Power share port to charge a smartphone or MP4

I couldn’t recommend the bayan audio soundbook x3 more highly. I spent quite a lot of time researching similar products and this bayan soundbook is really impressive and beats the competition in all categories. Not only does it look and feel fantastic, it’s a great price and the sound quality will blow you away. I also love the fact that it instantly connected to my iphone straight out of the box and the long battery life gives it great staying power. Beautifully designed and packs an enormous punch.

  • It’s all about the bass – great speaker!
  • An impressive high end Bluetooth speaker, though not quite perfect
  • Great build quality

 the uk designed bayan audio soundbook x3 bluetooth v4. 0 speaker comes beautifully boxed and in the package you get the speaker, a mains charger/adaptor with eu, us and uk plugs, a 3. 5mm audio jack cable for non-bluetooth devices and a user guide. The soundbook x3 measures 235mm w x 120mm h x 40mm d and weighs in at 1. 4kg – in terms of physical size the unit is about the size of a traditional bound volume and also boasts mobile phone call handling plus an integral fm radio. The immediate impression is one of a high quality product which looks individual rather than ‘corporate’ in its appearance. There are two colour schemes available black with orange highlighting (the version i was sent) and silver with blue highlighting and display. The cabinet is formed from aluminium with a distinctive mesh front highlighting the position of the bass driver. Protection is provided by a clever integral ballistic nylon cover which protects the unit from scrapes and also incorporates the nfc touch connector plus fm radio aerial.

 kindly sent to me for review this mid range speaker impresses with it’s design and solid build quality. The soundbook is aptly named being hardback book sized with it’s own nylon smart cover which, when opened, not only turns the speaker on but also acts as the speaker stand. The cover also has the nfc tag built in for quick pairing, alternatively you can pair via the bluetooth menu or you can connect non-bluetooth devices via the aux in socket. There is also an aux out socket should you wish to connect headphones or a second speaker, and a usb out allowing you to charge your device while listening to music. The speaker has 4 drivers sat behind the front grill as well as a passive bass radiator. There are some leds also hidden behind the grill which tell you what mode this is on, so bluetooth, aux or fm for the radio. The radio is an fm radio rather than dab and that means lower sound quality compared to streaming music/radio from a mobile. You can set a single station (frequency is listed on the cool leds) and the speaker remembers which station you were last listening to. Sound quality is good, but not amazing.

I own one of these beauties – if you have never heard one, you are missing out. The sound quality is unbelievable, and it looks absolutely gorgeous. It is crisp and clear on the vocals but with a deep rich bass when needed, and it is seriously loud and does not distort when ratcheted up as loud as you like ( unlike my previous speaker, which was not a bayan but cost me more)it could easily replace all the hi fi systems in your house, it is that good. Five star product, and i see it was designed in the uk.

I have recently bought this bayan soundbook x3 and am absolutely delighted with it. The clarity and sound quality is extremely good, so good in fact you’d think the artist was in the room with youi have the one in brushed silver and turquoise and and i think it looks very smart and looks very good just about anywhere. I noticed it was featured yesterday in the daily express, ( this week must have section ) and it also comments on its excellent sound quality. So if you are looking for ideas for a special present for someone i would highly recommend this beautiful bluetooth speaker for just about anyone.

My mate in england has a soundbook and i couldn’t believe how great it sounds, so when i found this bigger version i couldn’t resist. It has loads of bass and is easily loud enough for any situation i can think of. It’s built like a panzer tank – seriously solid and looks awesome, but it’s not so heavy you feel like you want to leave it behind. 5 star sound, 5 star build and 5 star looks.

The sound of the unit is fantastic however i was disappointed with the fm radio as. The sound of the unit is fantastic however i was disappointed with the fm radio as the internal aerial did not pick up a strong radio signal very well in my area. The battery was meant to last 10 hours but mine only lasted about 3 even after following the initial charge needed to gain the full battery. I would have sent it back but i live in spain and the carriage costs would have been too much. I just keep it plugged in now.

    An impressive high end bluetooth speaker, though not quite perfect. Note the maker supplied a review sample for evaluation, the opinion of the product is my own personal view. This speaker from bayan audio is aimed firmly at the higher end of the market build and finish are in a league of their own, this feels first class taking it out of the box you are immediately struck by the weighty feel to the unit it’s a solid beast. Leaving aside the “tiger tank” build (you really can’t fault the speaker in any way here) bayan have gone for a simplistic design with logical controls and layout. Opening the cover powers the speaker on automatically (you can turn it off via the central button too) the cover is just as well built with ultra robust materials and this also houses the fm antenna for radio reception. Top panel has a series of rubber buttons for track/station search, power/mode/call accept end (multi function button) and volume. Led lights on the top indicate the volume, a rather neat group of lights show you the radio frequency and mode, these auto turn off after a while. No problems in pairing this speaker up range is near to the quoted distance (about 9 metres in my tests) a built in microphone handles calls respectably too. Rear houses a few connections a 3. 5mm aux input (a good quality gold plated cable is supplied) a line out jack and a usb port this is for charging other devices not for using a usb stick as an alternative media source.

    It’s all about the bass – great speaker. I was very kindly sent the bayan soundbook x3 in black with orange trim by the manufacturer for review purposes. The comments made within this review are from my own experience of using it. I have uploaded a few photos to accompany my review. The bayan soundbook x3 is a bluetooth 4. 0 apt x audio system that can wirelessly play any audio/music/radio apps/podcasts/audio books streamed from your bluetooth enabled devices such as mobile phones – tablets – computers. It also has an integrated fm radio. The x3 arrived well presented and looks really good as you open the box. What do you get?- the soundbook x3 – (length) 24cm x (width) 12cm x (depth) 4cm – weight 1.
