The EasyAcc DP200 BT Speaker is adorable. It’s rare for me to call an item adorable, but this little guy is just that. It’s a small form factor BT speaker, one of the smallest I’ve used so far and I like it. At least 80 percent of the speaker has the matte silver grill going around it. EasyAcc wasn’t shy about showing off the matte grill and there’s nothing wrong with that – especially if it works well with the design. Great job! The back is just a solid white strip, but has the controls at the bottom along with the AUX port, and the micro USB charger. As for how to control the volume and change songs, that’s actually done by using the slider. Slide it to the left and you’ll restart the song or back to past songs, or slide to the right to skip to the next song. I’ll get to the volume in a minute. Top side, is the multi-function button inside a light up ring. The ring turns blue and only blue. Aww. Flip the speaker over and you’ll see the two rubber pieces that keep the speaker in place surrounding by the FCC info, model number, where it’s made… the writing no one really pays attention too.
Ease of Use
Bluetooth speakers in general are so simple to set up, you really can’t go wrong. And if you do, please read the instructions. I tend to read them first so I get the gist of how to pair the unit with my phone. Powering it on is easy after doing it the first time. You have to hold in the slider (mentioned above) for about three to five seconds (same for powering off) and you’ll hear it powering on. Once powered on, the next noise is basically telling you it’s ready to pair. After it’s paired, another noise lets you know it has successfully paired, and powering off the speaker has its own sound as well. Now, the volume is where it got a little tricky. In order for volume to either be turned up or down, you need to hold the slider either to the left or right. I didn’t really notice the volume getting louder or softer until it was either loud or quiet. It definitely wasn’t something I was used to, but once I got used to it, I didn’t have any issues with volume. The multi-function button is also easy. If you’re needing to play, pause or answer a phone call, just press the button.
I can’t say this BT speaker will be winning any awards on bass quality, but the overall sound quality was pretty good thanks to the dual 5W divers. Every song I played was crisp and no distortion of any kind, so that’s definitely a plus.
EasyAcc didn’t specify how many hours of music playback you would get, but I was able to get around half a day’s worth if adding up the hours I tested the speaker over a three day span.
I’ve said this before and will probably continue to say this, but no one really likes paying close to an arm or a leg just for a brand name speaker. Save yourself some money and look elsewhere. EasyAcc has you covered, with an MSRP of $59.99 the DP200 is currently on sale for $35.99 before taxes and shipping for this decent little speaker. You will be buying this product from Amazon, so hope you have your account ready.
I enjoyed using the EasyAcc DP200 BT Speaker. The only complaint I have is that sometimes songs would continue to play, but there wouldn’t be any sound. It was a simple fix by pausing and then playing the song, so it wasn’t too big of a deal. Either way, I was still happy at the end of the day.
