Designed for both Bluetooth mobile phones as well as any device supporting a standard 3.5mm headphone jack, Nokia's MD-7W speakers are an ideal travel accessory if you can't live without your music. Featuring a magnetic attachment design for portability, the MD-7W manages to pack quite a punch considering the size.
Designed for use with any mobile phone supporting Bluetooth 2.0 with the A2DP profile, the MD-7W's outstanding feature is the magnetic design. The two speakers feature a small magnet hidden behind the speaker grill and they snap together to save space when travelling. So you don't lose them, the speakers are also connected via a black rubber strip.
The side of the right speaker has controls; a power button, 3D stereo widening and volume control sit above a standard 3.5mm headphone jack and a Nokia charging port. Pairing via Bluetooth is a relatively simple process – simply switch on the unit to enter pairing mode, and search for Bluetooth devices to add the MD-7W.
Sound quality via a Bluetooth connection is solid, but far from outstanding. As expected, quality through the included standard 3.5mm audio cable is a far better proposition. The 3D stereo widening setting may be worth turning on, though it depends on what type of music you are listening to. At high volume levels, the stereo widening setting can distort your music, though it does provide reasonable bass for a set of speakers this size.
The MD-7W can run on either the included four AA batteries (two in each speaker), or via AC power using the included AC adapter. A flashing white indicator light lets you know when the unit is powered on, and a second light below signifies the 3D stereo widening setting.
