Award-winning audio brand X-mini announced the launch of their latest range of portable Bluetooth speakers – the X-mini TWISX, X-mini CLICK 3 and X-mini SUPA 2 – at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2019.

True to X-mini’s mission to take music enjoyment “Beyond Sound”, each portable speaker is designed for music lovers to enjoy their favourite tunes at their convenience, whether they are at home or on the move.

As such, we’ve included design details to help them enjoy seeing and touching our products, as well as hearing them. Our three new X-mini speakers deliver X-mini’s signature clear sound and all in compact designs which make it easy for music lovers to enjoy their tunes anywhere.

“Hoong He Hin, Chief Executive Officer of X-mini, says: “This year, in line with our tagline ‘Beyond Sound’, X- mini aims to humanise technology, fusing technology and material for a unique sensorial sound experience. We want to deliver a holistic sound experience for music lovers, not only through audio but also by invoking other senses like sight and touch.

X-mini TWISX

‘For Twisted Fun Everywhere’

The everyday portable Bluetooth speaker for robust, clear sound

With its unique cylindrical design and compact form factor, the new X-mini TWISX stands out from the crowd. It delivers heavy music performance but is also lightweight at only 383g. Its ergonomically curved grip design with textured grooves allows the perfect grip in your hand, so you can carry the portable TWISX with you anytime. It is IPX5 certified and water-resistant, and its splash-proof design makes it a welcome addition at pool parties and outdoor gatherings.

The X-mini TWISX uses the X-mini Proprietary TWISX Control: a single swivel nub designed to deliver a superior sound experience with an effortless twist of the hand. Twist and hold its knob to the left and right to skip to previous and next tracks, or press down once to pause or play music. You can also twist knobs to the left and right, to control music volume.

Powered by a 12-watt triple driver system in a precision space design, the X-mini TWISX delivers a powerful, robust sound performance everywhere you go. Designed for optimum sound delivery, its compact speaker body makes efficient use of space, housing its triple driver system which consists of two 50mm active drivers and a 50mm x 120mm passive radiator driver.

The X-mini TWISX also has two pre-set EQ settings: Vocal and X.Bass. Boost X-mini’s signature clear sound by choosing the X.Bass EQ setting at a click of a button, or double-click the same button to activate True Wireless Stereo pairing.

To help you share your music everywhere, the X-mini TWISX can be used horizontally or vertically, allowing for flexibility whether you’re travelling, or listening to music outdoors or at home. The X-mini TWISX can also fit into most bicycle water bottle cages for easy transportation.

Its multi-function tilt stand is designed at a 26-degree angle, for a maximised sound experience. It is also True Wireless Stereo enabled, offering robust stereo quality sound performance with left and right channel stereo sound when two X-mini TWISX units are paired together.

With its large 5,200mAh battery capacity, the X-mini TWISX offers up to 12 hours of music playtime, so you can savour your favourite tunes for longer. It also offers dual connectivity with the latest Bluetooth 5.0 Technology (compatible with most devices) and a 3.5mm AUX-in jack. It also comes with a built-in microphone, for hands-free calls.

X-mini CLICK 3 ‘Made For Selfies’

The ultra-portable Bluetooth speaker with X-mini’s signature clear sound

Lightweight, fun-sized and splash-proof, the new ultra-portable X-mini CLICK 3 is ready to travel anywhere with you. Weighing just 92g and fitting easily in the palm of your hand, it offers a big, full sound experience with its large 40mm driver. 

True to its name, the CLICK 3 is perfect for taking selfies: it’s designed with a camera-inspired shutter release button, just like traditional film cameras. Hold up the X-mini CLICK 3 and double-click the remote shutter to take pictures, and complete your selfie experience with an LED light burst effect, which mimics the flash burst of a camera.

The X-mini CLICK 3 is ergonomically designed so its curved shape fits snugly in your palm, without restricting sound quality. It offers a better grip when taking pictures, thanks to its waterproof silicone wrist strap, and also has an anti-slip silicone base to keep the X-mini CLICK 3 firmly in place when music is playing.

Enjoy up to 6 hours of playback time when out and about with the X-mini CLICK 3, which is powered by a 400mAh battery. With its IPX4 rating, it is also splash resistant and rain-proof, so you can take it along easily on your travels. You can also enjoy a True Wireless Stereo sound experience when you pair two X-mini CLICK 3 units together.

The X-mini CLICK 3 also has a playful element in the form of tri-colour LED lights: a red light for charging, blue light for Bluetooth pairing and white light for its light burst effect mode when taking pictures. It also has a built-in microphone for hands-free calls everywhere you go.

X-mini SUPA 2

‘The Vintage-Inspired Home Stereo’

The portable Bluetooth speaker for rich, detailed and full-range sound

With its vintage-inspired design, the new SUPA 2 is a portable home stereo speaker that fits right into your home. Designed for working urbanites to enjoy the highly detailed, full-range and rich sound, the 30-watt speaker delivers loud, powerful audio.

It is also X-mini’s first speaker with a six-driver system, which consists of four active drivers (two 58mm drivers and two 36mm drivers), and two 60mm by 120mm passive radiator drivers for extra clarity and rich details, and enhanced bass.

Customise your audio experience with the SUPA 2’s 3 preset EQs – Clarity, Vocal or X.Bass – to get the best of your music. Its multi-functional handle and tilt stand can be set at 30 degrees, the angle designed to deliver the perfect sound experience for you.

The handle and tilt stand can also be converted to a carrying arm, so you can bring your music anywhere you go. Powered by a 5,200 mAh battery, the X-mini SUPA 2 offers up to 8 hours of playback time, making it ideal for a relaxing night of music with loved ones.

While many music lovers are used to controlling their music from their mobile phones or tablets, the X-mini SUPA 2 offers easy music control at your fingertips with its Smart Magnetic Maestro remote controller. It automatically powers on or off when the magnetic remote is lifted off the speaker or placed back in position, and controls basic playback functions, volume control, EQ modes and the answering of phone calls.

The SUPA 2’s vintage-inspired styling celebrates timeless moments and fun memories. It is designed to complement your home decor, so it looks – and feels – right at home. Convert its multi-functional tilt stand into a carrying arm, so you can place it wherever you like in your home – whether it’s the kitchen, bedroom or living room.

It also has dual connectivity, with Bluetooth 5.0 technology and a 3.5mm AUX-in jack. The SUPA 2 charges via a USB Type C cable, and has a built-in microphone for calls. Its bi-coloured light indicator radiates elegantly, helping you relax and enjoy a holistic sound experience.
