Antec Wav and Wedge speaker for your Smart Phone

Antec Wav and Wedge speaker for your Smart Phone

Bluetooth Speaker

Despite being better known for cases and PSUs, Antec has been carving out a niche in the mobile accessories market of late. The Wav and Wedge Bluetooth speakers are its latest gambits, which enter a market more crowded than a casting session for Game of Thrones extras.

First up is the Wedge that, not surprisingly, is wedge shaped. However, this natty design allows the speaker to double as a phone stand thanks to the four suckers situated on its long edge. It works too, the suckers clung to every device we had to hand , even a textured phone case, and the speaker is small, smart and unobtrusive when not being used as a stand. Unfortunately, while its sizes makes it discreet, it also limits it as a speaker. The audio is tinny and underwhelming, while the side-facing drivers mean that they fling the sound away from you, rather than at you.

The Wav, on the other hand , feels more serious. It's larger and more expensive, with solid build quality to match, and you get much more in the way of features, including on-speaker controls, NFC pairing and hands-free calling. Audio is reasonable, with solid treble and bass reproduction, as well as enough volume to fill a room. It's let down by flimsy mid-tones that lack clarity and punch, though, leaving audio lacking in heart and warmth. Still, the sound isn't bad, and you get some decent features for the money too.
