Recently, SOLEMEMO sent us a Myvision N11 Bluetooth Wireless Speaker for testing. We’ve put it through its paces, playing everything from heavy metal to podcasts and audio books on it. Read on for our impressions of the Myvision N11!
An interesting rectangular shape, with anti-slip rubber feet, the Myvision N11 comes in red, blue, and black. As far as features go, the Myvision N11 is touch-controlled, with two volume controls, a mode selector button, and a power button on the top of the device. Pairing the speaker with your smartphone or tablet is relatively easy. To enable Bluetooth pairing, search for the device on your phone, and you’re done. No Bluetooth PIN codes required. The rear edge of the Myvision N11 is home to a microUSB charging port, microSD card reader, and an auxiliary cable jack in the standard size of 3.5mm. The addition of a microSD card reader is somewhat curious to me. Though unnecessary, it certainly doesn’t hurt. I imagine that it makes it easier for multiple guests to share their favorite music at a party.
The Myvision N11 also has an interesting motion control feature. It’s a little tricky to get used to at first, but a nice addition that other wireless speakers don’t have. Press and hold the mode selector to turn on the motion control. You can now swipe your hand to the right over the motion sensors to skip to the next song, or back to the left once to restart the current song or twice to skip back to the previous song on the playlist. It’s pretty handy, I have to admit. Additionally, battery life on the Myvision N11 is excellent, and it can play audio for 6 hours on a charge.
For the size of the Myvision N11, it’s got two pretty powerful speakers, coming in at 3W each. When listening to songs where there are a lot of intricate notes of music, like Demons by Imagine Dragons or the classical stylings of Chopin, for example, there’s hardly a note lost to the ear. Voices are crisp and clear, but never overpower the notes underneath them. Clocks by Coldplay sounded simply fantastic when played over this speaker, as did the opening medley sequence for Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith by John Williams.
There is a distinct lack of bass, however, and not just when playing heavy metal songs. Often, bass-intensive songs sound a little hollow on the Myvision N11. If you’re using this speaker for everyday listening, that could affect your decision to buy it or not. Personally, I listen to a lot of music with strong bass, so listening to these songs with very little bass was definitely an adjustment for me.
For parties and outside events that need a bit of music, though, a lack of bass won’t matter very much. Besides, the Myvision N11 is loud enough to be heard clear across an old Victorian-style house. What does that mean for you? Well, you certainly won’t have trouble hearing it at your family reunion or at the beach. The volume of the speaker is one of its strongest assets.
I did use the speakerphone some, and it sounds about as good as speakerphones built into other Bluetooth speakers. Quality of voice on the receiving end was good as well. There was very little tinny noise or unwanted background noise.
Again, my only real gripe was the lack of bass, which I’d like to see addressed in the next iteration of the Myvision N11. Overall, though, I’d recommend the SOLEMEMO Myvision N11 Bluetooth Wireless Speaker. It’s small enough to throw in a backpack or gym bag for trips or workout sessions. A really solid audio experience with a ton of extra features doesn’t hurt either, something I’ve never gotten out of a Bluetooth speaker priced under $40 USD.
