Which is a better vehicle, a Honda Civic, or a Ford F-150? The way I see it, this is a pretty poor question, because it compares two completely different products for two completely different markets. If you are looking for a compact, economical, reliable, and fuel efficient sedan that is fun to drive, you would buy a Honda Civic. If you are looking for a truck for work that can easily move lots of things around, can rock in the mud as well as it can tow a trailer up the mountain, you would buy a Ford F-150. As you can see, this is a classic case of expectation versus categorical error. No one would reasonably choose a Honda Civic over a Ford F-150 to make rounds at Home Depot; nor would anyone do the opposite because they wanted something small and easy to park. You will have to choose the one that comes in the correct form factor to meet your needs correctly. If you have been following APH Networks for the last little while, you will realize we have covered quite a number of audio products recently. This ranges from the excellent Audioengine A2+ powered desktop speakers, Func’s well received HS-260 gaming headphones, to Adesso’s own Xtream H2 Bluetooth wireless headset. Of course, I am not going to sit here and pretend every product is amazing in its own way. Each product has its strengths and limitations, and some does its job better than others. On the other hand, being a passionate audio enthusiast at heart, it is also important to present a balanced case of expectation versus satisfaction. Today, we are going to take a look at Adesso’s Xtream S2 Bluetooth wireless speaker. Measuring in at 17.7cm wide, 6.8cm tall, and 5.5cm deep, do we expect bass to rock the house and power that rivals my home entertainment receiver? Obviously not. But what can we expect from such a compact package that promises to deliver reasonably good sound without any wires, and even features a mic so you can take some calls on your phone?
