CHARACTERISTICS OF THE SPEAKER
SPECIAL VERSION OF THE MONOCLE
Inspired by traditional vinyls, NATIVE UNION has developed a special edition MONOCLE, a portable aluminum speaker with a polished finish. The grid of the baffle is also matched to the part of the aluminum case, thus differentiating itself from our basic colors.
IN THE BOX
4 basic colors (green, blue navy, mint, slate) and 2 special colors (black diamond polished aluminum, copper polished aluminum)

The packaging is very professional (simple but effective) :zero defect, nothint to report! Everything is carefully packed (cables, monocle) and we find a notice that has a french version. Finally, we will not need it, it is very intuitive and it is more pleasant to discover the feature by yourself!
As for the product, we chose the one with the polished aluminum copper finish, the effect is really well done, it gives it a retro premium look. The material is durable but you will still have to pay attention to the scratches on this beautiful copper finish. The classic version may in this case prove more suitable for those who are less careful. All sockets and outlets are placed to the millimeter, the product is really qualitative.
We appreciate the woven nylon cable which is much more durable than a conventional cable as well as the "soft touch" applied to the whole Moncole.
The jack is pretty thin and fits easily even with the shell on my iPhone: good point and it is important, those who have a shell will share my joy and my relief.
It can be fixed / hung wherever you want with the small fixing cable and the cable manager, once again they thought of everything for the nomads! Monocle is very compact and plays well its role, it can be easily arranged anywhere since it holds in the palm of a hand.
As for the sound: in our workspace with the windows closed ... this is something for a speaker of this size! The quality of the sound is clean and clear (be careful to have downloaded music in high enough quality). Window open, the sound is less impressive. There will be no problem listening when you are outside or doing an activity. But we must not be too far away if we want to make the most of the music. We would love a sound a little stronger ... we will to make with it we can not have everything :)
Small tip for a more powerful sound if you use iTunes: ctrl + A or cmd + A to select all your music in your library, right click to get the information / options / volume adjustment and increase the volume bar to the maximum, click OK, save and sync your devices: you will earn a few decibels;)
Some features we found practical:
- We turn the base to increase the volume (very nice)
- A "click" during rotation allows us to switch to headset-free mode for all private calls.
- A microphone on the cable allows us to answer easily without anybody hearing (or people can hear while passing in speaker mode on the Monocle) so no need to disconnect monocle from the phone to take a call.
- Ability to pause / next song / previous song with a small button on monocle. They thought of everything ..!
- Control LED when Monocle is switched on in loudspeaker mode
... and many other small features that we let you discover for yourself!
Frankly ... it is a good investment at this price: we are conquered and for once we go on a mop!
