I am usually okay as long as I have my smartphone.But you know smartphones, they easily run out of battery and mines no exemption especially because I also use it for listening to my favorite mp3 music.
Then came newKUBE. This small yet amazing mp3 player could playback up to 7 hours of mp3 songs. It's what I need for those dull moments during travel.I therefore call it, a travel essential.
BIG, RICH SOUND
Bluetree Electronics, a maker of next generation audio technology, introduced newKube MP3 Player at the Consumer Electronics Show Las Vegas this 2013.
Smallest mp3 player it may be, it delivers rich audio playback. When I saw how small it is and how small the cable is for the earphones, I was apprehensive of the quality of sound it could give.I was very particular with the earphones because it's not in-ear plug to start with and I am so used with the idea that the chord should be thick enough to deliver a strong sound.But it did surprise me. How can a gadget this small could deliver Big, Rich Sound.Small but terrible indeed!

“Our customers love the Kube family of MP3 players and made suggestions for all of the new features we put into the newKube,” said Sem Chong, managing director, CEO and founder of Bluetree Electronics. “We’re delighted to introduce the newKube on the stage of the world’s largest consumer electronic event at CES 2013. We believe there is still a huge opportunity for standalone MP3 players because there are so many situations where using the newKube is preferred to using the music player on a smartphone. We believe the sound from the newKube is better than any music player on any smartphone.”
The newKube comes with a charging cord and headphones.Can carry additional microSD cards for more music selection.

The newKUBE mp3 player is a deviation from the usual mp3 players you can find it the market.It is very unique I may say.I haven't seen an mp3 this shape in the market so it is really a standout. Since it doesn't have any screen to show what is playing, it kinda gets tricky at first.Good thing they added the repeat and shuffle functions.I am yet to master the "jump folder" though which allows you to get to a specific song location. Was a bit confused with the buttons on all side too especially the forward and reverse functions.
I also had a little issue with it in my pocket at first since it's not very flat. But that is a very minor thing.It could still easily fit my side pockets even if I have my wallet and smartphone in em.Just like any other device, it needs a little "getting-used-to-it" honeymoon stage.The moment you get familiar with it, things get much easier and more fun.I actually find it cool.I would usually play with it with my hands and people get curious about this small white cube I am holding that is attached to an earphone.Looks like a cool toy.
Best of all, with all the cool features, it comes really cheap at 1,599 pesos. With Big, Rich Sound, Stylish Design,Cool Colors and Long Battery Life, it's so easy to get hooked to this device. As for me, no more dull moments during travels!!!!
