It’s hard to admit it sometimes, but I’m basically an adult. I’ve graduated college, I have a full-time job, and I don’t live with my parents. Most days, I mentally barter all the things I would exchange to be a college freshman again. But thanks to the Cambridge Audio Minx Go, today is not one of those days. The Minx Go is for adults. It’s just that sophisticatedly awesome. So for now, I’ll raise my champagne glass to my adulthood and to a speaker that makes me feel better about it.
But I know what you’re thinking, “stop talking about your first world problems and get to the goods!”
There’s a no-frills design to the Minx Go and that’s one of the things I like about it. When I envision sleek sophistication with a subtle hint of modern flare, the Minx Go is what I see. It is available in black and white, and while fingerprints tend to smudge the exterior, it’s pretty easy to keep shiny and clean.
Admittedly, this speaker is a little pricier than the Bluetooth speakers I’ve reviewed before, but there’s a reason for that. The audio is phenomenal. Here’s the specs, audiophiles: Bluetooth connectivity, 2 titanium tweets, twin 2” woofers, a rear-mounted Active Bass Radiator and built-in digital signage processing. All of these features come together to bring you amazing audio, and in a portable speaker mind you! I love the on-board digital to analogue converters that enhance streamed music. Now, I can use a Spotify playlist to keep my parties (a.k.a. my Harry Potter hangouts) bumping all night long (or til 10 PM.) The Minx Go also utilizes an “acoustically damped construction,” which eliminates vibrations and distortions. Trust me, you can tell a difference. The bass was really strong and clear, just the way I like it. Well, really I’d like it better if it brought me chocolates, but I think I’m asking too much.
Another key element of the Minx Go that sets it apart is its 18 hour battery life. Did you get that? 18 hours! That’s like an entire Coachella Music Festival but without the heat and sweaty people. Now the Minx Go looks a little bigger than other portable speakers but considering the audio, I’m surprised it’s not five times its size. The dimensions are 9.3” x 4.8” x2.4” which makes it pretty portable, although it won’t fit in most purses. However, it does come with a protective bag so you can carry it around.
The Minx Go connects in a snap. While it comes with an in-depth user manual, I really didn’t need it. Just press the power button twice to enter Bluetooth pairing mode and you’re done! The Minx Go can also charge your devices while it’s plugged in, since my iPhone certainly can’t last 18 hours.
All in all, I’m really impressed by the Minx Go. Considering its audio and battery life beats high priced speakers, it’s pretty hard to deny the amazingness of the Minx Go. I might be an adult, but with the Minx Go I can still have sophisticated fun.
But maybe not all the time:
