How it works and usage: Sonivo NFA Easy Speaker
How it exactly operates is not disclosed but an educated guess and some internet research on the NFA suggest that it is based on electromagnetic induction, The capacity of EM fields to induce current in nearby coils is the same age-old property powering things like wireless charging and it gets even awesome here. There are no Mics that take the sound and amplify it, we tried shouting out at the speaker, it wasn’t amplified at all.
It’s the same technology that is used in smartphones that allow you to be heard when your mouth isn’t anywhere near the microphone.
It is compatible with any media device which has speakers and can output sound, be it a smartphone or a media player, all you got to do is place the device on the NFA Speaker from Sonivo.
And for times you don’t want to use the NFA technology, there is a 3.5mm Cable provided to connect to any of our Music devices including an iPod.
Also, did we mention it comes with a built-in Polymer lithium rechargeable battery allowing a continuos playback of up to 5 hours.
There are just 3 settings at the side, ON/OFF Switch, 3.5mm socket and a Micro-USB socket, there are no options to adjust volume on the speaker, you can control the volumes using the source device (smartphone).
At the bottom is a rubber stopper on all four sides for it to now move and it stick to the surface well.
Don’t expect a crazy Bass boosting, crystal clear high-end sounds from the speakers but it does the required job of playing the music aloud without spoiling the quality of the sound emitted from your device.
Sure there are more speakers but this one takes the cake when it comes to portable speakers.
