If you want your home or office to have a retro ambiance, flawless execution is all in the little details. You can get started with some retro furnishings. But it is when you get around to your accessories and appliances that you really cement a mid-century look and feel.
If you are shopping for a Bluetooth speaker, you might not think to search for a device with a vintage flavor. After all, Bluetooth is a modern invention.
But Muzen OTR Audio Retro Radios fill this unexpected niche! These retro-style Bluetooth speakers offer modern functionality in a stylish, handcrafted package which will fit in great with your retro décor.
Muzen Audio Radios: Two-in-One Functionality
Actually, these retro Bluetooth radios fill two functions:
- As Bluetooth speakers, you can connect them wirelessly with a variety of devices to play whatever you want.
- You can also tune them with their dials to FM radio frequencies.
The latter feature is unusual for a Bluetooth speaker, but also a perfect complement to the retro design. The radios are portable, and if you are old enough, they may remind you of the portable FM radios which you might have carried around in your younger years.
Now you can relive that childhood nostalgia anytime, anywhere. In fact, “OTR” stands for “On The Road.” You can use the speaker at home or at work, bring it with you driving, or set it up under your umbrella as you relax on the beach. Wherever you go, you can show off your vintage style and enjoy streaming radio, MP3s, FM radio, or anything else you want to listen to.
Stunning Vintage Design
The appearance of the Muzen OTR Bluetooth speaker/radio calls to mind products of the 1950s and 1960s, so it fits in great with a mid-century décor style.
The speaker is on the left. With its four wide horizontal bars, it has a stylized appearance. To the right is a large dial for analog tuning of the radio features. A couple of knobs below that let you control the volume and the setting (Bluetooth vs. FM, on/off).
Measuring only 3.7 in X 2.83 in X 2.2 in, the radio can fit in the palm of your hand. A leather carrying case and strap come with your purchase so that you can wear the radio over your shoulder.
Whether you are looking for a wood Bluetooth speaker, pink Bluetooth speaker, or just about any other color or design, you are in luck. The Muzen Audio Retro Bluetooth OTR Speaker is available in a wide range of colors and materials.
- Rosewood Duffle
- Walnut Duffle
- Sky Blue Metal
- Flamingo Pink Metal
- Chiffon White Metal
- Mint Green Metal
- Red Crimson Metal
- Lavender Metal
- Jet Black Metal
Mint green and sky blue are both very popular colors right now for appliances with retro designs. So it is great to see that this Muzen product is available in both of those finishes and so many more.
It is also awesome that none of these finishes are plastic! Whether you opt for wood or metal, you’ll be getting a beautifully designed product that immediately enhances your surroundings with a stunning look and sound.
How Does the Muzen Audio Bluetooth Speaker Perform?
Now let’s go over a few technical details. The Muzen OTR features a 40mm / 1.57 in neodymium iron boron full frequency speaker. The SNR is > 60db and the distortion is ≤ 0.5%. You should be able to connect through Bluetooth even if your device is up to 33 feet away.
If you were to close your eyes and have someone turn on the speaker before you got a look at it, you would probably picture a much larger device. You would expect such a tiny speaker to produce tinny sound, but it doesn’t.
The bass isn’t incredible, but it does blow away expectations.
- Muzen Audio Retro Radios are the wood radios and metal radios you’ve been looking for. With their high-quality materials, fun colors, and stunning mid-century modern designs, they are evocative of the nostalgia of simpler times.
- Everything you could ask for is included for portable use. Sling the radio over your shoulder and be on your way. You can take your tunes with you everywhere along with your love for retro style.
- The rechargeable lithium polymer battery can give you up to 10 hours of battery life. So even for an all-day outing, this radio is ready to go.
- For a tiny speaker, the Muzen OTR Retro radio boasts an impressive sound output with a pleasing balance between treble, mid-range and bass. Its performance given its size will delight you.
- The analog radio dial is both fun and easy to use. It is faster to tune than a digital radio, and may bring back fond memories from your youth. Reception is outstanding.
- One of these vintage-style radios makes for a perfect gift for the fellow lover of all things retro in your life. Get one for yourself and one for a friend.
- Your purchase comes backed by a 12-month warranty.
- This is not a cheap radio, and the price does include the accessories. Those who do not need all those accessories (i.e. the duffle and travel case and strap) may find the price to be a bit steep. But the accessories add a lot of value, and when you consider their quality together with that of the radio, the price is very reasonable.
