Product Review: Bass Egg – [VERB] is Fun, Affordable, and Quite Adaptable

VANAPHASE™ the Vanadium powerhouse!

So my pretties, I’ve been crazily busy testing all sorts of gadgetry for you since CES (I told you I had a lot!) and I’ve been woefully behind reviewing items as I want to properly test them of all their capabilities and flaws.

I have found that speakers fall into a couple of categories: most speakers are “affordable” which could easily translate to “crappy” or “cheesy” or nice speakers which means “I take out an unnecessarily big loan like the US government of which I can never hope to pay back whenever”.

Neither are good. Enter in the Bass Egg, the model called [VERB] which is an extremely fun speaker.

However, upon closer inspection, the manual was quite well designed, informative, and humorous.

Trust me, I have a lot of crap on my desk(s).

Usually fun speakers are putting horribly garish colors on it in a 90s “extreme” sort of view aimed at children. While I have no issue with our young ‘uns learning about colors and all that “fun” stuff – most of those fall under the “affordable” section which isn’t taken too seriously.The design of the Bass Egg itself is elegant. It’s like two ends of the egg balanced on top of each other. The two options for colors are Black and Gunmetal. Both quietly elegant and tech-like colors that can be incognito or showy as much as possible. If you think you want to change color, there’s the Egg Shells, which are protective cases for your speaker. It’s an easily adaptable device, it is both Bluetooth and analog (wired) capable of hooking up to anything with a headphone jack.

This is Gunmetal. It is sexy.

It makes me think of being a woman of taste and distinction.

However, the [VERB] is fun in a different way.

Never did I run into any speaker that wanted me to stick it to any surface and watch it play and to see which made the most reverberating and awesome sound quality. Generally, empty cardboard boxes that had sturdiness to them, empty bathtubs, even wooden bureaus had the best sound. Large, semi-flexible areas are the best in amplifying sound. At $99.99 apiece, you can even get some entertainment systems and keep the cupboards empty, and stick these guys in one apiece and it will make more than a great sound and have an awesome stereo system – or at least a darn good one.

The reason why this is quite feasible is that the Bass Egg operates by transducer technology. (It’s a fancy word for a vibratory thing that will transfer the sound into the material so that it can be amplified. It’s basically just the driver part without the other bits of the speaker.) However, the metal housing (aluminum?) is quite durable. They even shot this thing with a SHOTGUN and it still worked. It used to be on YouTube, but I can’t find the original video. I’ll post it when I find it.

The charge that you can do via the cord they provide (separate port) lasts quite significantly. The manufacture claims that you can have it up to 4-10 hours of use. I’ve had my speaker last longer than 4 hours at least.  The range is pretty impressive. I tested this in a warehouse that was quite huge (1/2 a football field) and I was 1/2 of the way down before it cut out of Bluetooth range.

In conclusion, I love the Bass Egg [VERB] because it fits all of the above in elegant ways. It’s “fun”, “affordable”, and quite “adaptable” on top of it being stylish and durable. And it can be shot by a shotgun and still run well.
