Today’s tech savvy world is all about wireless stuff. However, if you start taking a look at all your gadgets not every one of those will offer you that functionality. Maybe, your old speakers work fine but they definitely lack Bluetooth which makes them a bit of an inconvenience. If you are a true blue tech junkie then you will definitely own that legacy audio equipment. I loved mine and I still have them with me. Now if you have them then you must also suffer from the same problem that I do – how to unshackle wired speakers and music systems and connect them wirelessly to music sources. I can feel your ears perk up and your head nodding. I have been looking for a solution for over a year now and I am really happy to tell you that I finally found just the thing that can help you and I solve the issue once and for all.

This magical thing is called Plugzee- a tiny device which will let you turn your audio device like an ordinary pair of speakers into Bluetooth speakers, just like that. I was a bit sceptical about it in the beginning but once I tested it, I was pleasantly surprised to see that it does not compromise on its audio quality and is very smooth when it comes to interfacing with your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone, laptop or tablet. Oh, and I completely forgot – you can also use it for your car radio which has an audio jack but no Bluetooth.

I have speakers with a 3.5mm audio jack and Plugzee hooked up quite easily with them moreover the set up is very simple and you can easily connect from a Boombox or  Home Theatre System. Plugzee can pair upto 8 devices and claims a range of 10 meters. The best part about Plugzee is that it uses lossless compression with the latest APTx technology. If the technical jargon is a bit too much for you then let me put it in layman’s terms – you get CD quality sound over Bluetooth. Moreover, Plugzee uses a power efficient Bluetooth 4.0 LE module and this is the reason you are allowed to pair quite seamlessly with a Bluetooth device of any generation with just a press of button.

I was so impressed with this device that I decided to do some in-depth research about the design and built of Plugzee. I found out that it comes with a Lithium battery which allows you to stream music for almost 18 hours on a single charge- it comes with a stand-by time of 30 days. Plugzee also comes with an over-current protection circuit allowing you to use a charger with any amperage.

I know that a lot of you will argue about other such products available in the market. However, believe me when I say that I have used a few and none of them gave me the winning combination of HD sound with great battery life, compatibility as well as portability. The reason behind the clear sound quality is the fact that Plugzee uses low complexity sub-band coding and aptX codec for compression, which means the music streaming is done in a lossless manner and as a result there is no change in the original quality of the song that you play- CD quality sound over Bluetooth. I can see you all are very happy so let me add to your happiness a bit more – you get all this packed in a smooth, portable design which can be easily pocketed and carried anywhere you want.

Technical Specs for Plugzee

  • Pairs with up to 8 devices and boasts a range of 33 feet allowing you to toggle between your phone and tablet in a hassle free manner
  • Power efficient Bluetooth 4.0 low energy module
  • Loaded with a Micro USB charging port allowing you to charge it with any existing USB outlet
  • Built-in noise cancellation microphone which allows you take calls over a loud speaker. You can also take control over your phone through Siri or Google Voice search
  • Loaded with a Lithium battery allowing you to stream music for 18 hours on a single charge
  • Compatible with any Bluetooth device
  • By connecting Plugzee to the audio speaker via AUX cable you can keep your device away from your device

The other thing that I loved about this device was that it is actually quite pocket friendly and I bought it for $39 and while I was writing this review, I checked the price and they are offering it a 25% discount as of now, which means you get your device for just 29 USD +shipping. I think this is one thing that you will love to have and not regret. Oh and you can thank me later.
