Customer review

“I got this on Prime Day for a fantastic price, about 1/3 of it’s normal price. Even though I knew this, I wasn’t expecting much, but was pleasantly surprised. Although the listing and photos claim 40W, the box clearly states 24W, so maybe 40W peak, but so you are aware as a potential buyer who would want to know, each speaker is 12W for a total of 24W according to the specs on the box. But, it does sound louder than 24W, and there is no distortion even at high volume. The speakers are 3″ each.”

“Previously owned the Bugani M83 which I purchased a couple years ago and was blown away with the product to price point, but most importantly the accuracy of the features are true and not exaggerated when it comes to clarity, deepness of the bass and overall sound quality. The M118 checked all the same boxes as the M83 for myself but was pleasantly surprised by the new features put into this model. For starters, there isn’t anything overwhelming, but there is certainly a noticeable difference with the loudness that the 70W offered vs. the M83’s 50W.

It’s not stated as of yet in the description that the M118 actually does not use a micro-usb cord, but rather uses a micro-usb C cord to charge and the box includes a fair length USB C cord inside along with the 3.5mm aux cord for hard wiring your devices in if you prefer that option. When I purchased this on April 6, 2022 there was a $25 coupon offering that accompanied the purchase price of $79.99. Essentially paying $55 + the taxes kept this purchase hovering in the $60 range and I would challenge any other company to offer an equivalent product at that price point.

I’m sure the audiophiles out there will always have a reason to pick apart any product, but at this price point picking apart anything the M118 offers is straight arrogance in my humble opinion. This speaker offers all that it says it does and is beyond the quality that your average music lover will say is not plainly put as an Absolute Great Value in the world of BT speakers. The M118 shouldn’t be and ai doubt it would be left any audio system reviewers top 10 list when it comes to speakers offered for less the $100 price point. I am a paying customer that was offered no incentive to write this review and have done so because the product deserves the praise for what it is. Thank you for your time if you read this review and feel free to share your own personal experiences if you would like to.”
