My new Crazybaby Mars levitating Bluetooth speakers just arrived!


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Also forgot to mention, but my Mars 'levitating UFO' Bluetooth speakers arrived yesterday after almost a year waiting. I had originally backed the Indiegogo campaign for it last year.

 

So I got my unit yesterday and opened it up.

The whole thing looked a bit like getting a Mac Pro, but speakers instead. Have to say I was impressed with the build quality!

And yes, the top 'UFO disk' they call the Craft definitely hovers as soon as you power it on!

That's very cool! What is the top disk for?

 

The "floating disk" is the mid-range/treble speaker while the cylindrical base is the woofer.

Is it just a single speaker or a pair?

 

Thanks! Yes the top disk is a midrange tweeter satellite, with a built-in battery, so you can move it away from the base.

It actually is a single speaker but works in two parts (midrange and subwoofer). If you get a 2nd identical unit it actually works as a pair, but you need an app for that on iOS (which is coming) or on Android.

 

When I first switched it on, only the top disk part was getting sound, and nothing on the bottom. Following Crazybaby's support advice I rebooted the bottom part by holding the power button down for 2 secs until I got 3 beeps, then the Craft button until 2 LEDs came on. That helped the base to pair with the Craft and finally get sound out to both units.

 

One thing I also need to mention is that the bottom half also has a 10000mAH battery built-in, so you can charge it and move it to any spot if you want.

 

Apart from the seeing the amazing feat of a floating levitating disk on powerup, the sound from this thing is superb! Highly recommended

Thanks! FYI if you're interested I've uploaded a small clip to Youtube on how the thing works. :D
