amazon Xiaomi Square Box 2 reviews
Xiaomi can be considered as the company with the most diverse products today; there is nothing that Xiaomi cannot produce. Despite producing a wide range of products, Xiaomi still maintains product quality with low prices, so Xiaomi’s products have significantly influenced other giants in recent years. One of the products that Xiaomi does very well is the portable speaker, one of which has won the Red Dot award – the Xiaomi Square Box 2.
The Red dot is an international award for product design presented by Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen in Essen, Germany. The awards are chosen by a panel of design professionals of worldwide repute and reputation, with special consideration of design aspects across different cultures. Winning products are regularly displayed at the RedDot Design Museum in Essen’s historic Zollverein Coal Mine Industrial Complex. The RedDot awards have more than 11,000 nominations from over 61 countries. The Red dot award doesn’t matter whether a product is a high or low cost, so it’s special for a cheap portable speaker from Asia to win this award.
Rugged design with solid aluminum
Xiaomi square box 2 is the most sturdy portable speaker in my opinion so far. Xiaomi has cut out an aluminum block into a shell for this speaker, making the speaker seamless and sturdy. The thickness of aluminum on Xiaomi square box 2 is about 1mm. Due to being made of aluminum, although the speaker is only 168 x 24.5 x 58 mm, it weighs 270 grams. Xiaomi square box 2 has three colors: copper-gold, blue, rose red, pink, and purple. The version I received is copper-gold.
On the front of the speaker are holes to help escape sound with the small Xiaomi logo below. A control button cluster with buttons on the right-hand side: power on / off with white led lights (play/pause music), volume up/down (also function next/back songs), connection button Bluetooth. One of the difficulties when you use this Xiaomi square box 2, is that it does not use English but Chinese. But it only takes about 15 minutes for you to get used to it because, with the Bluetooth speaker, there are not too many features to explore.
The left side is a micro USB charging port, a 3.5mm jack, a microphone for talking, and a micro SD card slot. This micro SD card slot reminds me of the Chinese speakers. The integration of a micro SD card slot is very beneficial, do not underestimate it. Whether you connect the speaker using standard Bluetooth or 3.5mm wire, your phone will drain the battery, only using a micro SD card will only drain the battery of the speaker itself. In addition, using a memory card to listen to music helps to play music without interruption when there is an incoming call.
Below the speaker is a thin and small rubber band to increase the grip for the speaker. Below these two rubber bands are two screws; you must remove these two screws first if you want to remove this speaker.
Xiaomi square box two is packaged in a white box with three awards on the front that Xiaomi square box two has won; in addition to the red dot award, there are also two awards: Good design of Japan and China Good Design.

One bright spot in the treatment of aluminum material on the speaker is that it is processed through sandblasting, laser engraving, and two layers of anodized oxide color.

The Bluetooth standard used on this speaker is Bluetooth 4.0. Quite old compared to today, but the speaker was introduced in 2015; at this time, Bluetooth 4.0 standard is still very popular with advantages such as.
– Bluetooth 4.0 was born on June 30, 2010, is an optimized version of previous Bluetooth standards that allows high-speed transmission and lower energy consumption. This version combines the advanced features of the conventional Wi-Fi standard with the core elements of Bluetooth technology. That is evident through the following features:
Low Energy Consumption: This feature is of
great importance to developers of small battery-operated Bluetooth devices.
Bluetooth 4.0 allows devices with small batteries to last for more than a year,
much longer than only 2-3 days if using traditional Bluetooth.
– Achieve high reliability in multipoint connections.
In addition, this speaker also possesses other features,
such as the speaker using NdFeB permanent magnets.
– Neodymium magnet or Neodymium-Iron-Bo magnet, or sometimes abbreviated as NdFeB, is a rare earth magnet made from a compound of Neodymium (Nd) – Iron (Fe) – Bo (B). The molecular formula Nd2Fe14 Neodymium magnets were simultaneously invented by both General Motors Corporation (USA) and Sumitomo Special Metals (Japan) in 1982 and are still the strongest permanent magnets known.
Using Avnera AV3120 audio processing chip
– Avnera AV3120 audio processing chip is used to balance the sound quality, adjust 19 volume levels and 12 PEQ reverb levels.
There are also some outstanding features such as
– Water cooling technology from Ferrotec FRM4005
– Black anodizing oxide aluminum alloy drivers to produce rich and realistic sound quality.
– Built-in bass radiator speaker uses multi-color injection molding for great sound quality to the experience. The surrounding TPU is granular for better shock absorption. This combination ensures excellent bass, mids, and treble.
Two full-range speakers equipped on Xiaomi square box 2 are 36mm in size with a capacity of 3 watts each and one rectangular passive woofer.
The speaker setup is quite simple even though the speaker uses Chinese
– Press the power button for about 2 seconds to turn it on or off
– Press the volume up/down button once to increase or decrease the volume.
– Press the volume up/down button for about 2 seconds to move next or back the song.
– Press the Bluetooth button for about 5 seconds to reset the Bluetooth mode.
Compared to a small body and only 3 watts of speaker power, the sound Xiaomi square box 2 brings is huge. I’m really surprised it can be this big. Although the speaker is loud, the Xiaomi square box two still retains its sound control. But I advise you that whether listening to portable speakers, desktop speakers, headphones, or any other audio device, you should never “max volume” because such cases will disrupt the inherent sound quality of the audio device. The best thing is that you should keep the volume about 80% or less.
I listened to some familiar songs like “Unchained Melody,” the sound that Xiaomi square box 2 brought was clear, easy to listen to, and the singer’s outstanding voice. The weak point is that the soundstage is not airy and spacious.
The second thing is energy; even though the speaker is loud, the energy that the speaker transmits into each note is lacking; this factor greatly determines the musicality of the speaker.
I ended up listening to the song “Thank you,” an Acoustic version performed by Dido. Still, a prominent vocalist in the background, the drum sound in the song is somewhat easier to hear than the high range that Xiaomi square box 2 showed in previous songs. The drum sound is firm, compact, still lacking a bit of force, but that is too good for a small speaker.
Xiaomi square box 2 is a beautiful speaker, solid, and has many colors for you to choose from according to your preferences. The build quality of this speaker, in my opinion, is very good. The case of the speaker is not creaky; you can even use this speaker as a self-defense weapon when needed. The sound the speaker brings is not too excellent compared to the price and the small body of the speaker. It performs very well; this sound quality is easy to hear for those of you who are not too fastidious; it is enough for you on trips abroad or business without having to wear headphones or enjoy the bad sound from the speaker on the phone. With a tradition of shocking with cheap but good products, Xiaomi once again shows us that there is nothing it can’t produce at a cheap price.
