It is an amazing Bluetooth speaker, which gives you a pretty good audio experience with deep bass. Its audio quality is better than many big soundbars out there in the market.

Underneath the speaker, the model number, brand name and serial number has been mentioned on a round metallic sheet. The entire base is rubberized, which grants stability to this speaker during musical vibrations. On the bottom of this speaker, you get to see a design, which creates a sort of hollow space between the bottom and the speaker. Overall, the speaker is pretty stylish, premium and elegant.
