The X-Mini Capsule Speakers have made us completely blown away by the absolutely astounding sound quality and volume that they are able to produce despite their small size. When people first see and hear the X-mini they simply cannot believe that what they are hearing is emanating from a handy pocket sized unit…




Retaining all of the best features from the groundbreaking first generation unit the second generation comes with a number of innovations that combine to create a greater audio experience for the user. The first and most recognizable difference with the X-Mini II is that it’s slightly larger than the original model. The X-Mini II now boasts a 40mm driver that delivers an even richer and fuller sound. The X-Mini II now boasts an improved battery life a staggering 11 hours of continuous playback from just one charge. A brand new feature to the X-Mini II is the Buddy Jack system. This allows you to connect one X-Mini II to another and another and… well you get the picture. Capable of forming a near endless Daisy Chain. Combine your X-Mini II with your friend’s for quite simply jaw dropping audio! The refinement of the original X-Mini continues with the inclusion of an inbuilt 3.5mm audio connection cable. No more running the risk of forgetting to pack the charging/connection lead when you leave… the connection cable is always in reach. The audio cable neatly slips away underneath the speaker when not in use.



The fun just doubles and even triples when you connect two or even three of these small, but very powerful speakers to each other in a chain… and you can go on connecting more and more. You can see three of the XMI X-mini II speakers connected in the video above, but they are much more impressive when you see them live. And of course these are great as a gift that your friends will like for sure, especially if they like to listen music from any kind of mobile device like a mobile phone or MP3 player.


The price of a single XMI X-Mini II speaker is just $28.99 USD.
