Product Details

Philips Black Wireless Portable Speaker - BT3500B/37

Bring big tunes with you, everywhere

Quality style and big sound merge in a body so slim it can be slipped in everywhere. Built-in NFC technologies makes smartphone pairing as easy as a touch.

Features:

  • One-Touch with NFC-enabled smartphones for Bluetooth pairing
    Pair Bluetooth devices easily with one-touch NFC (Near Field Communications) technology. Just tap the NFC enabled smartphone or tablet on the NFC area of a speaker to turn the speaker on, start Bluetooth pairing, and begin streaming music.
  • Wireless music streaming via Bluetooth
    Bluetooth is a short range wireless communication technology that is both robust and energy-efficient. The technology allows easy wireless connection to iPod/iPhone/iPad or other Bluetooth devices, such as smartphones, tablets or even laptops. So you can enjoy your favorite music, sound from video or game wireless on this speaker easily.
  • Anti-clipping function for loud, distortion free music
    Anti-Clipping lets you play music louder and keeps it high quality, even when the battery is low. It accepts the input signals from 300mV to 1000mV and keeps your speakers safe from damage by distortion. This speaker handles anti-clipping through a dedicated audio limiter IC. This monitors the musical signal as it goes through the amplifier and keeps peaks within the amp's range, preventing the audio distortion caused by clipping without affecting loudness. A speaker's ability to reproduce musical peaks decreases along with battery power, yet anti-clipping reduces peaks caused by low battery.
  • Built-in microphone for hands-free phone calls
    With its built-in microphone, this speaker also works as a speaker phone. When a call comes in, the music is put on pause and you can talk via the speaker. Call for a business meeting. Or, call your friend from a party. Either way, it works great.
  • Built-in rechargeable battery for music playback anywhere
    Play music out loud - anytime, anywhere. The built-in rechargeable battery lets you enjoy your personal music without the fuss of entangled power cords and the inconvenient search for an electrical outlet. Enjoy great music with the freedom of portability now.
  • Audio-in for easy connection to almost any electronic device

Been looking for smaller speaker to sit beside my laptop. Tried these and the only thing I cannot stand, is if the pc is quiet for 15 minutes the speaker goes into stand-by. WHY? I know it's there and would turn it off when done. It's built very well. Very attractive. Loud bass rattles a bit, but.... So, I'm still searching for the best speaker for my laptop.

The speaker does what I want, I listen to it in the car so it doesn't have to be loud. I wanted to use it at home too, but the volume is much too low for that. The speaker worked great until it was time to charge it the very first time. I connect the charger and the usb port and it didn't show anything, no red light that it was charging, nothing. I tried another charger I had that was the exact type of charger I have used many times with no problem, and again no red light, no charging. I realized it was in the port of the speaker itself. If I wiggle the cord it will show the red light. I have found if I can prop the speaker up putting pressure on the charger cord it makes the connection. I tried to take it back, but I had bought it at a store many miles from where I live and by the time I could get there again it was past their return policy time. SO, I'm stuck with a speaker I can charge SOMETIMES. VERY UNHAPPY.

2nd unit and still wont hold a charge

By 

from Tampa

Comments about Philips Black Wireless Portable Speaker:

I used the original unit for a couple months before the the unit would not take a charge. It seemed as the charging port soldering came loose, as i could wiggle the cord to get the light to come on. I was not overly abusive with the unit, and always removed the power cord when moving the unit. Philips replaced the unit as it was returned within 1 year of the manufacturing date on the sticker found on the back of the unit. I treated the 2nd unit very gingerly. In fact It was almost never removed from my dresser. After the first month the unit stopped working unless it was plugged in, then stopped working altogether after a few more weeks.

    Comments about Philips Black Wireless Portable Speaker:

    Bought one and charged it. Ran it until it needed a charge. Plugged it in but it wouldn't charge. Philips replaced it with a refurbished unit that ALSO would not charge! So I called again and received a third unit that... wait for it... will not charge.

    Poor Battery Life

    By 

    from Bucks County, PA

    Comments about Philips Black Wireless Portable Speaker:

    As with many other reviewers I found that the battery life falls off very quickly. When I first bought this about a year ago the unit could hold a charge for at least 6 hours. Now I'm lucky if I get one hour. I don't know why Philips would not allow the battery to be replaced. I guess they think we're all deplorable.

      Comments about Philips Black Wireless Portable Speaker:

      I am on my second speaker. The first had a charging issue. It would show power connected, but would not charge. Phillips replaced (Kudos), but now the second one will not hold a charge. When I first got it, it lasted around 9-1/2 hours. Now it's lucky to last 3.

        I purchased 2 of these for our office and warehouse. The first one stopped working after 2 days. Will not charge or turn on. The second one will not connect to bluetooth. No customer service help. I will never buy a Philips product again.

          Poor charging design

          By 

          from Newton, NC

          Pros

          • good sound

          Cons

          • not usable with present charging system design.

          Best Uses

            Comments about Philips Black Wireless Portable Speaker:

            While the sound and appearance of this speaker are good it can't be charged due to the poor design of the charging system. It was a problem the first two times and then failed completely at the third charge when the female receptacle fell down inside the housing. It will be returned to the store for a refund and to purchase one from a different manufacturer.
