UNBOXED: Reviewing the M4 and W4 by Omaker
Comparing Bluetooth speakers on the market comes down to a few main criteria: how does it sound, how long does it last, how does much it costs, and how durable is it. Many companies will make you believe you are getting the best of all these experiences but will end up cutting corners somewhere.
Omaker, on the other hand, has managed to cram some excellent sounding speakers, into one of the sturdiest form factors we've seen, advertise a huge 12-hour battery life, and keeps it the stocking-stuffer price range. Two of Omaker's products, the M4 (priced at $26.99 on Amazon) and the W4 (priced at $19.99) came to me in modest packaging but offered one the most satisfying experiences I've ever had with a speaker to date.
Starting with what I would call their flagship product, the M4 immediately demanded my attention. The vulcanized rubber speaker is little bigger than a hockey puck and feels just as sturdy. Painted in an Army green, I quickly found myself tossing the speaker from hand to hand, even throwing it a few feet in the air with an unfamiliar level of confidence.
