I thought I had seen just about ever possible configuration for a mouse, but when the folks at Seenda asked me to review a Music Speaker Mouse I said sure why not. On the surface this mouse looks like any other average mouse available on the market but what makes it different it has a speaker and microphone built in.
On the bottom of the mouse their are two switches, a standard On/Off, and a “Speaker On/Off”. As soon as I turned on the speaker, the mouse spoke to me a said “pairing” I paired the mouse with my iPhone, and like any other speaker you pair was able to start playing music through the mouse speaker while at the same time using it as a standard mouse. I actually discovered the microphone by accident when I answered a call and the mouse acted as speaker phone.
What surprised me the most was that the audio quality was not that bad. The mouse is capable of 3 watts and so long as your not actually using the mouse it sounds pretty good. When you are using your mouse the music is obviously muffled a little bit by your hand. For $40.00 this may end up being a cool stocking stuffer or better yet it could come in handy for Skype calls.
There are controls on the mouse that let you return last calls, answer & decline calls. There is a volume up and down button and of course standard wireless mouse functions.
One feature I like is the 900mAh rechargeable battery. The Music Mouse recharges over Micro-USB in a couple of hours while still using it. Seenda says you should expect six hours life when playing music, or up to 70 hours standard use.
The Seenda Music Speaker mouse is definitely pretty unique and a fun product to boot.
