A great performer under any circumstances. Don’t waste your money on any other brand 5*’s.  this is my review for the e5 portable smart wireless speaker with amazon alexa, wifi+bluetooth, multi room audio for music streaming, powerful sound with enhanced bass, 15 hours battery life, airplay, spotify and iheart radio. 99 as on 05/05/2017the item arrived in a cardboard box, within which was it’s sleek retail packaging (both of which were recyclable)so, what do we get?- e5 speakers- leather handle- power adapter with uk plug- instruction manual (in english), inc 24 hours customer service & technical support- warranty cardlets take an in depth look at what we havethis is a beautiful sounding music system – that you certainly can’t call, just a speaker. 0 stereopower input: 15 volts 1. 8 ampfrequency: 70-20khzmusic power output:20wdistortion: ≤1%bluetooth: 4. 0sensitivity: ≥83dbaudio decoder format: mp3,wav,wma,aac,alac,flac,apewi-fithis unit has the ability to connect to your wi-fi system, using the 2. It will also act as a wi-fi repeater to extend your range (but don’t forget to change the password)whilst connected to wi-fi you have the ability to stream music (using the app downloaded to initiate setup), either from your device or your own stored collection on a nas (network attached storage). Within the app you have the ability to connect to various music streaming services (some of which are subscription based) tidal, iheart radio spotify etc. And tunein radio services which are free. Wi-fi also enables you to use apple air play to connect with any of your devices (even if the app is not installed on them) including your mac’s.

First of all it arrived in a very strong sturdy thick box which keep it safe upon delivery. After opening the box, straight away i could tell it was a really good quality product. The finishes on the edges and how its all put together was finely complete. I purchased the black colour which suited my living room more and it goes really well with the rest of my electrical as they are all black too. The product was mainly covered in white good quality white coated steel and the speakers are covered with a mess cover. The item wasn’t too big for a sound system and can be easily moved around and even transport about without much hassle apart from one power cable. The sound quality was really clear crisp even when it is blasted loud but i was expecting that as it is german engineered system which is known to get really good. I connected the songs via bluetooth and it was really easy, the phone found the speakers instantly and it was a click of a button when pairing the devices together. The music played out within a split second.

Amazing audio quality & modern design.  the package arrived quick and well secured. This is truly one of the best full feature bluetooth speaker with excellent audio. I like everything about this purchase. The packaging is well thought out and the design of the speaker looks modern and feels solid. The speaker has many settings that is easy to change and buttons are responsive. The audio is the best that i have heard from a $150 and less speaker. The audio quality is exceptional and well balanced. The low’s sound amazing, mid’s clear and crisp, and the high’s has excellent bass without losing the quality of the music.

A high quality, good looking speaker. I am very pleased with this high quality speaker. Heavier than i thought it would be. It has bass and treble controls, which means i can alter tone to suit my hearing, because i find sharp tones irritating to damaged nerves in one ear, which is a nuisance when using ipad or kindle fire. I use the speaker mainly to listen to music or tone sounds to help my insomnia, but to ensure the sound is as if coming from a distance i put it on the carpet next to a chest of drawers to keep the volume as low as possible. I have slept well since getting this speaker. For its size it packs amazing sound and volume.

  • GGMM E5 Internet and Bluetooth Speaker
  • This is the speaker that I have been looking for!
  • considering flogging the Sonos on eBay and going GGMM

Highly featured but audio quality is below average. For the price this speaker is fairly well made and feature rich. There are plenty of reviews describing what is on offer so i will not repeat it. However there are some issues that need pointing out. The wifi feature includes range extension but this can’t be disabled and so is constantly broadcasting and using power, a fundamental design oversight. The point of wifi besides smart features like subscription free tunein radio (which the e5 has) is to offer lower compression and improved audio quality. The fact that audio via standard bluetooth (the e5 does not have aptx) and airplay/dnla modes sound little different underlines that this unit has limited resolution and definition. I was surprised by all the positive comments on sound performance as there is no lower bass and instead a rather bloated upper bass, midrange is ok but there is no treble definition. The use of the bass and treble controls alter the tone but don’t change these limitations. This means the unit sounds quite good with voice and news programs but be under no illusions it is not capable of anything aproaching high fidelity sound and lacks lower bass and sparkle and dynamics in the treble.

This is the speaker that i have been looking for. I have purchased many bluetooth speaker in an atttempt to find something that sounded good but have never been satisified with the sound quality either there is too much bass and no topend or no bass and tinny so when i saw this i went straight to the youtube test videos and what i saw and heard seemed impressive so i ordered one. When it arrived i was suprised on how heavy it was, not that it is overly heavy but gives the speaker a feel of quality. The back of the unit is made from good quality plastic and the front has a metal grill. It come with a removable leather strap which i found very easy to fit. The unit has both bass and treble control knobs and each makes a notible difference so can be fine tuned to suit your taste or music type with ease, i have left both in the middle (0) setting. On the back there is a usb port for charging your phone etc. , a power socket, aux imput via 3. 5mm socket and a wifi/bluetooth button. It should be noted that the unit will play when charging the battery and can also be used as a wifi extender, in additon to this under wifi mode you can connect two or more speakers for multi room or two together and set them up as left and right speakers for a wide stereo effect.

Looks good but doesn’t sound it. Some things i like about this speaker and some things i don’t. The design and build is more accomplished than the older ggmm speakers but this improvement does not fully translate into its performance. The feature set is impressive with lots of streaming services when connected by wifi, alexa interface, airplay, dnla and hotspot wifi extension for using multiple speakers that may go out of range of your router. I was less impressed by the hotspot feature that can’t be disabled when not required causing unnecessary wifi clutter and the blinking battery indicator, a multi colour led would have been so much better. The app works fairly well and the firmware updated with no problems. Booting up could be quicker but this is not a deal breaker. Having said all that the main criteria for a speaker is how good it sounds. To hear what can be achieved by similar sized bluetooth speakers, bose, jbl and b&o spring to mind and set fairly high standards, but of course they are more expensive as you are paying the brand name premium. There are many lesser brands like doss and dockin d fine that have bluetooth only speakers that are cheaper than the e5 but achieve better sound quality with a more extended frequency response and a more involving lively dynamic presentation.

The clarity of sound is remarkable. It looks stylish and is really sturdy and well made. Connection was easy but it helps to be a little it savvy to interprete the instructions. Really happy with the purchase, i’ve been using non stop to stream live music and my iphone downloads.

Considering flogging the sonos on ebay and going ggmm. Did a little research for a bedroom speaker to plug into airplay/sonos connect so that i could listen to amazon audible through sonos. Which incidentally used to be possible directly through sonos until they withdrew the functionality. E5 outstripped all expectations. To cut long story short and given the keen pricing on ggmm units i am considering flogging the sonos 2×1, soundbar and subwoofer on ebay and going ggmm through my home.

Great smart speaker with good amount of bass. Great smart speaker with good amount of bass, loudness and clarity for its size with amazon alexa voice service, a major plus.

Just what i was looking for – really useful and effective. Really good sound with built in eq. Quick setup with app on iphone. Alexa function rather more complicated than necessary hence only 4 stars, but i didn’t buy it for that aspect and overall this is a really useful product.

Love love love this speaker – feels really solidly built, network functionality is easy to work out and it just works. Sound quality is pretty good – have owned wireless speakers from sonos, cambridge audio, b&w etc. Cool leather strap although not sure what you’d use it for, but highly recommended.

Sound that is full of depth for all types of music, and of good quality materials. Reviewing speakers is always a difficult thing to do, especially as we all have different criteria as to what is good sound, so i will try to be as objective, (neutral), as possible. First of all, it is boxed very well, so it should survive those not so careful carriers. Charging from almost flat took quite a few hours, but this isn’t a negative as far as i am concerned, and it was its first charge from almost a fully discharged battery. For its relatively small size, it feels both very solid and reasonably heavy, although again, this should not be a problem. Pairing is no problem either. To test, i tried a variety of music and compared to the sony srs-x2, and although the sony is smaller in size, and has the same wattage rating and frequency response (on paper), i was expecting similar quality sound – i was very surprised, both with the volume and depth of sound. First of all, i tried beethoven’s piano concerto number 1, and this speaker handled the full blown orchestra and solo piano very well. Up to receiving this speaker, i had thought no portable speaker could better my sony, but this certainly is.

 designthe design of the speaker is handsome. The front is a simple white mesh. The little silver knobs and a leather handle gives the speaker a retro look. The back plate is a textured plastic. The trade off for this design elegance is the lack of any waterproofing. In other words,i would take extra caution around sand or water with this speaker. Despite lacking in the waterproof department, the speaker does feel fairly solid. Everything feels strong and there’s no flex to it. On the back of the speaker is the charging cable and a 1a usb output.

Sound was ok but couldn’t get alexa to work. Possibly the app was faulty. Also would not connect to my wifi though did originally. My main concern was no real troubleshooting information or links. The suppliers have been in touch and are sending me a replacement unit. I will update my review fully when it arrives. They do seem most concerned regarding my poor experience.

But it looks and sounds amazing. I wanted something for next to me when. This speaker is completely over-kill for my needs. But it looks and sounds amazing. I wanted something for next to me when i am listening to mindfulness, guided meditation, relaxing tracks. I have issues with sleeping, thankfully it’s not as bad as it has been, now i am back listening to my albums. There is a fair weight to this small and compact speaker. It is a solid feeling device. You can attach a leather strap which is included, this does look nice and easy to attach. I think the leather strap will look nice once it has been used a bit and the material gets a bit softer.
