Cygnett Micro portable speaker
The Cygnett Micro portable speaker can easily be slipped in your pocket or handbag
- Rechargeable battery, cheap
- Some distortion when you crank the volume up
The Cygnett Micro is ideal for anyone who can't be without music when they're at the beach. It's an inexpensive and portable speaker that offers a clear sound.
Price$ 29.95 (AUD)
Measuring just 47x105x23mm, the Cygnett Micro can easily be slipped in your pocket or handbag. The speaker is made from lightweight black plastic and comes with either a red, silver or pink trim. As it weighs 75g, it’s ideal for use on the go and certainly won’t take up much of your valuable luggage allowance
The Cygnett Micro features an internal lithium ion-battery, which charges via a USB port. It takes between two and four hours to fully charge the battery, and for this you’ll get around three hours listening time.
We found the Cygnett Micro easy to use. Simply connect the speaker, which comes with a built-in amplifier, to the headphone port on your personal audio device using the cable included. The only controls the speaker offers is an on/off switch on the right-hand side (a red LED on the front also indicates when the device is turned on).
To play, pause, stop and skip tracks, as well as adjust the volume, you’ll need to use the controls on your personal audio device. We did find there was distortion on some tracks (in particularly bass heavy songs) if we cranked the volume up. However overall the Cygnett Micro speaker provided a clear sound.
It’s also worth remembering that if you intend to use the speaker on holiday, you’ll need your laptop close to hand to recharge the Cygnett Micro.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.
The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.
My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
