Olixar Qi-Tone Unboxing

vlcsnap-error358Mobilefun have sent  a Olixar Qi-Tone Alarm Clock Bluetooth Qi Charging Speaker with the dark wood finish.

Technical Specifications

  • Dimensions: 250 x 90 x 75 mm
  • Qi: Yes (WPC 1.1)
  • Bluetooth: V2.1 + EDR
  • Input: 5V, 1.5A
  • Power: 5W
  • Speaker Frequency: 60HZ – 20KHZ
  • Speaker Driver: Stereo, 1.5inch, 4Ohm, 3W

Perhaps in the unboxing I come across as not terribly impressed by the Plixir clock, however over the last week of using it I have actually grown somewhat fond of the retro-esq time piece.

This is a device that requires very little attention yet subliminally you are using it a awful lot. I have never had a desire to know the temperature at any time, living in Northern Ireland we are either “baltic” or just warm enough to be a little uncomfortable. There is no inbetween. However, having it there I have begun to observe just when the temperature changes to Baltic from warm. That’s started to take my interest. I see it sitting at 21℃ and take note. I will look again when it is baltic and we see 19℃, 20℃ is indistinguishable from 21℃.

Then again there is the the large, friendly time placement, basic alarm function and uncomplicated, old fashioned interface. This is genuinely refreshing to just set things manually and not have to rely on sporadic bluetooth connections, fiddling with NFC or internet radio. I now realise I am just pointing niceties that clock radios have had for the last 40 years and it’s welcome here. A device not trying to be more than it needs to be.

The addition of Qi wireless charging is the modern age being injected in just the right amount. A practical use of Qi charging combined with the old. The charge rate does not matter and it’s entirely unobtrusive implementation. The same with Bluetooth, it just works and doesn’t try to be clever with it.

Speaker quality is perfectly acceptable for what this is. You are not going to be hosting parties with it, in saying that it might actually surprise you, yet it will easily handle calls and a little background music as you get ready for said party.

Two USBs on the back assist in the charging of peripherals without Qi, a smartwatch and tablet. You won’t have to dig down the back of the night stand for charge cables anymore. I was not able to playback an MP3 off a memory stick however that sort of method is probably long dead. Just to cover other bits and pieces that stream there is a 3.5mm AUX thrown in for the completest.

From afar the clock looks quite elegant however up close the finish does look like the vinyl wrap is stuck on, which it is and takes away from the over all appeal. I will also say that the price does seem a little steep at £100.00 and that is the a major downfall of the Qi-Tone.

KitSound trio look stunning in Rose Gold

It is no secret that the gorgeous metal rose gold is taking the world by storm at the moment, especially in the fashion and audio world. We’ve seen it on the catwalks, Apple have chosen it as one of their limited edition colours, and people all around the world are choosing the precious metal for their wedding rings.

The rose gold trend has even extended to audio accessories, which means that you will be able to bring in hints of rose gold both into your outfits and into your home without going too overboard. There is no quicker way to kill a trend than to use it too much, and we love rose gold specifically because it doesn’t overpower everything else that you are wearing.

Here are the three top rose gold audio products that we are totally in love with right now:


This is the KitSound Boombar 2 in rose gold, an incredible speaker that has 10 Watts of power and up to ten hours of play time. You can either connect your device with the 3.5 mm cable or Bluetooth, and you can even use it as your hands free if you receive a call. This speaker looks fantastic in your home, and we love it.

RRP: £80.00


Sometimes less is more, and that is definitely proved by the KitSound Manhattan Headphones in rose gold. The delicate inclusion of the metal means that the headphones are never going to scream at anyone – instead, they are all about class and elegance. They are also packed with fabulous audio technology, with eighteen hours of play time and Bluetooth connectivity so you are not all tangled up with wires.

RRP: £34.99


Last but by no means least we have the KitSound Pocket Hive in rose gold. This speaker will be appearing in a winter issue of GQ, and it is easy to see why so many people are loving this. This speaker is only a couple of inches high, and comes with a hard shell carry case so it is incredibly portable. The passive bass radiator has been configured to maximise the depth and richness of sound, and the rose gold grill brings a twist to what is a well loved design.

RRP: £40.00

One slight problem with the Chromecast Audio

CQFeXYQWgAQggBt-350x200Google launched its colourful new update to the Chromecast yesterday, not one but two different devices. One of the new additions a lot of folks were getting excited about was that music streaming giant Spotify is finally supporting Chromecast. However, after explaining a more about the service today, Spotify say owners users the new Chromecast will be able to ‘cast music directly’ from a phone or tablet right away. The cloud this silver lining is wrapped around is only Spotify Premium subscribers will be able to send content to Chromecast Audio. I’m sure this will only effect a smaller percentage of Spotify users, and perhaps will help Google keep their Play Music as via option of Chromecast users in the future. However there are a fair few out there that will be a little glum about this stipulation.

First-gen Chromecast will need to wait for a firmware update enabling Spotify support first from Google. This is expected in the coming weeks.

MiHome works to cut your household bills

MIHO029As energy prices rise and the complexity of home heating controls increases, homeowners will welcome an entirely new range of easy-to-use energy saving products that could help to reduce energy bills by as much as 20%1 in a simple yet effective way. Makers of superior energy saving products and devices, Energenie, have introduced the MiHome range of adapters and monitors, allowing greater control over heating, lighting and electrical appliances that is truly accessible to everyone.

Working remotely through either an iOS and Android app or a PC, users can simply scan the Gateway with their phone and immediately begin using the central hub of the system to control the full range of easy-to-use retrofit actuators. The modularity of the system means that users can add products as and when they want, in the knowledge it will be compatible with existing products in the home, and provide a strategic and cost-effective way to gauge energy use and expenditure.

The Mi|Home range can monitor the energy usage of individual sockets, groups or scenes in real-time or over time to see which devices consume the most power and should be turned off. Its Smart features mean users can easily set timers and programmes to fit Mi|Home into their schedule, while geofencing enables control of the products from a remote location and IFTTT means triggers can be anything from the weather to Facebook.  

Oliver Tadd, commercial director at Energenie: said: “MiHome gives consumers back control over their energy consumption. Once the devices have been installed, it allows households to change their energy usage as well as shifting their behaviour towards consuming less energy.

“Through the Internet of Things, the devices can be linked to other devices in the home and applications within them talk to each other.

“With low installation costs and the best value entry model considered cost-effective given it’s a modular system, households can choose elements from a range of devices depending on the need.

“For example, zoned-controlled heating when it’s cool in the morning, or lighting in rooms that are only occupied at night. The devices could even be used to turn your washing machine on, or your oven off, straight from an iphone or PC when you are out of the house.”

The complete MiHome range comprises:

  • MiHome heating – for zoned heating control
  • MiHome Light – integrated control of wall and ceiling light
  • MiHome Socket – integrated control of devices and appliances
  • MiHome Adapter Plus – manage devices and record consumption.
  • MiHome Home Adapter – control devices and appliances
  • MiHome Home Monitor – live energy recording
  • MiHome meter – energy data for your whole house

Entry level model costs start from £70 and are available to buy from
