Chapter in this post:
The crazybaby mars is a mobile speaker that can be used to stream music via Bluetooth and the crazybaby app. The sound system comes with two units: the base station with subwoofer, battery, USB outputs and of course a power input; as well as the Hi-Fi loudspeaker that can float above the base station. The strong magnet in this speaker also ensures that it can be attached to and used on metallic surfaces independently of the base station - i.e. on the refrigerator, on the bike or in the garden. Last but not least, it is also waterproof.
The device, which weighs around 3,7 kg, comes in two units: subwoofer and loudspeaker. Both have a battery. The subwoofer gets 8 hours of use and the speaker 6 hours (while also hovering 2cm off the base). The diameter of the device is 15,2 cm and the height is 27,2 cm. Music can be played via Bluetooth as well as via the App (see below) can be streamed. The loudspeaker can also be used independently of the base station.
This station, however, has many more options: especially when connected to the mains, it is suitable for charging up to two USB devices. The device also has a microphone, which makes it ideal for telephone conferences. The crazybaby Mars sound system is not only something for at home and parties, but also a device for the office. By the way: there is an intelligent volume control that turns the volume up or down, depending on whether you are moving towards or away from the device (AutoVolume Function).
The device has been listed on Amazon since January 2016. However, it has already been implemented via crowdfunding since 2014. Whether 2014, 2016 or 2017 - this video is largely up-to-date:
In theory, music, calls, audio books and the like can also be streamed easily via Bluetooth. However, the crazybaby app has other options besides sound transmission. So z. B. individually adjust the suspension height of the loudspeaker; The LED ring on the speaker can also produce different lighting modes. An equalizer ensures the best sound in the current environment. All details about the crazybaby app for iOS or Android you can find here:
Firstly, because the speaker rotates above the base station, the sound is not falsified by a surface, as is the case - according to the developers at crazybaby - with speakers standing on surfaces. And secondly, there is no back or front with this speaker, everyone gets the best possible sound quality. With regard to the sound quality of the Mars speaker, however, there are different opinions. Although it cannot keep up with hi-fi stereo systems and 5.1 systems, it still produces a decent sound. And since the small, round loudspeaker is also waterproof up to 1 meter (according to the manufacturer IPX7), it is also great for outdoor use.
Of course, such an interesting technical device is offered for sale on Amazon. The currently single Rating on the product page is 5 stars but again that it is a good product. The author also emphasizes the versatile application possibilities: "[The device] is of very high quality and has a very elegant appearance thanks to its aluminum housing.
Due to the floating croft, the device is always an eye-catcher. Thanks to its 360 ° sound, the sound is equally good everywhere in the room. :) As a result, we have often taken it with us to friends and used it at smaller parties or sit-ins. The device is a very welcome guest.
Since we also like to do a lot of bike tours, the Craft has often been used and served us well. The device can be used without an app. [...]
Conclusion: beautifully made device with good sound. Versatile, e.g. for gardening, bike tours, celebrations, etc.
We don't regret anything! :)"
This sound system is an innovation in terms of design, range of uses and many other aspects. However, this fact is also reflected in the price of the crazybaby Mars. Therefore, I want to show you two alternatives to the device at this point:
