Coming to the performance, W8 is a tiny speaker with a 4 watts power output. The W8 is low on bass but that is expected of a budget small speaker. The colour patterns are visually pleasing and that compliments the audio experience. It works well as a small desktop speaker for casual listening. The call quality is decently good too. With an 80Hz – 20KHz frequency response some of the low notes go unnoticed.
If you are looking for a small table top Bluetooth speaker for personal casual use, the F&W W8 works as an entry-level offering. The colours definitely add coolness to the experience.]]>
