I was very impressed with the initial experience of opening the box, and setting up the product.
The Tubus blue tooth speaker is very nicely designed and it has great sound quality. It is also very easy to use and set up.
It includes a remote control to adjust the functions of the device as well. The speaker can be plugged into the wall or it also can be operated on Triple A Batteries.
It also includes a line in cable to directly connect the device to a mp3 player or any other device with a headphone jack.

Wrap up and Conclusion:
I would like to thank Omicron International for the opportunity to review this fine product.
I am impressed by it overall. The Tubus Bluetooth portable speaker offers nice sound quality and design, plus it is quite easy to operate. I played a variety of media through it and was quite impressed overall. The design is quite nice as well.
One thing that would be a nice add on in the future to the product would be a mini subwoofer or rechargeable batteries.
I would definitely recommend use of the product with a tablet, ipad, iphone, Blackberry or Android device for use in the office for a presentation or in the class room for the educational user.
If you or anyone you know wants to purchase on of the fine devices here is a link from Amazon–>
