Once a while a product comes our way, declaring unique design and eccentric functionality. But being unique means the constant expose to be criticized, to be judged and to be pointed out features that are not of the norm. Today, the SonicGear Aquarius declare it is not of the norm, but unique in one way.
In A Nutshell
The SonicGear Aquarius is an odd looking speaker, shaped like cannon shells. Almost half of the speaker is occupied by a transparent casing with water inside, more on this later. The speaker itself is levitated by a foundation, where the speaker driver is placed at the upper part of the hollowed section, where the sound travels out.
The SonicGear Aquarius is a portable multi-input Bluetooth speaker, it’s light enough to carry to around anywhere. It supports multiple inputs ranging from Bluetooth, TF-Card, USB and Line-in. Have enough juice to play audio for 4 hour non-stop as claimed by SonicGear.
What it is that is not your tough, durable portable speakers. It is not your sports companion or anywhere near there. It is more of a table-top speaker, but this writer finds it hard to accept since this speaker’s sound quality are far from impressive. What’s good about it, is that is still a stereo speaker, which powered by a pair of 2.5w drivers.

Now that all sounds like a typical portable speaker, whats up with all the unique design and eccentric functionality?

No word can describe how what it’s the result of such system, so do click on the video below to be amazed by a grand performance from the SonicGear Aquarius!
What it is, What is not
So after all these, what do we think about the SonicGear Aquarius? In terms of eccentric, we think that is unique and nice, this is something you would like to give as a cheesy gift to your friend. But as a portable speaker, it falls short as it is not tough and durable. As a table-top speaker, it falls shorts as the sound quality is far from impressive.
We find it hard to place this product anywhere and it feels that it naturally should be there. Maybe at a young lady’s room? or maybe in the kitchen. As we are writing this article, we’re still struggling to figure this out. Do you have any idea where it should be placed at? If you do, comment below and we’ll chip in the idea.
The SonicGear Aquarius is available at RM 79.90 which you can get one for yourself here. Honestly speaking, unless this is a cheesy gift to a friend, I’ll be more likely to consider another portable speaker if options are available.
