XMI LAUNCHES 49TH X-MINI SPEAKER COMMEMORATING SINGAPORE’S 49th BIRTHDAY
Sound Clarity Beyond Size
August 2014, Singapore – X-mini™ CLEAR
CELEBRATING SINGAPORE WITH CLEAR, CRISP QUALITY SOUND: X-MINI CLEAR
XMI kicks off this year’s National Day celebration with a clear bang and showcases their latest and largest speaker- The X-mini™ CLEAR, a custom 2.1 audio system at COMEX 2014 from 28th -31st August at Suntec. A Singapore success story, the XMI company created a new genre of small capsule-sized speakers and launched a local brand, X-mini™, globally to over 80 countries. For Singapore’s 49th birthday, XMI unveils the timely release of the 49th product in the X-mini™ collection.
A first for XMI, the new X-mini™ CLEAR boasts of studio-quality audio excellence delivered by XMI’s expertise and experience in best-in-class superior sound clarity. To achieve this, XMI went back to the fundamentals of delivering great Sound Beyond Size to rival existing portable sound systems. 20W of pure, unadulterated studio clarity audio, powered by: Custom 2.1 Audio System with 70mm active subwoofer delivering crisp low frequency reproduction Signature Ceramic Drivers creates clearer and cleaner mid and high frequencies through 40mm Ceramic Drivers.
Clear Back Design with 3-mode Mood Lighting aesthetics designed to accompany quality audio experience. Bluetooth & NFC enabled for One-touch seamless Wireless Connectivity of up to 10m. Noise-cancelling Microphone to filter background disturbances for phone calls. Smartphone Charging Capabilities with high-capacity 6600mAh Li-ion battery.
20W of Pure Unadulterated Studio Clarity Audio
Following the success of XMI’s proprietary ceramic range of portable speakers, the X-mini™ CLEAR delivers on audio prowess to produce their established crisp, clean mid and high frequencies. The Research and Development team developed a custom 2.1 audio system with an active front-firing 70mm long-throw subwoofer with the signature ceramic drivers for a distinct separated low bass, unusual in portable audio products today. This enables a tri-amplified audio effect which means that each custom driver has a designated amplifier driving the sound which gives the user a more immersive and desired audio experience.
This sets the X-mini™ CLEAR apart with the classic use of a 2.1 sound system from the current passive radiator drivers available in the market today to drive the low end frequencies. This infuses an active subwoofer coupled with signature ceramic drivers to pump out all your favorite tunes. Achieving a specific sound direction which provides for impressive sound separation of, for example, the various instruments playing. This surpasses the current sound separation and clarity standards in the portable speaker market and makes the X-mini™ CLEAR one of the cleanest and clearest sounding portable audio systems.
Sound so clear it’s visible
As the original creators of the award-winning Capsule Speakers™, XMI presents a unique design built on the simplicity of form and function. The X-mini™ CLEAR openly displays the inner workings of its sound engineering with a neat see-through back design, further enhanced with 3-mode mood lighting. For true enjoyment of clear sound with the added visual spectacle of mood lights that pulsate with the music to suit different moods and listening needs.
Built for a Mobile Lifestyle
Like all X-mini™ products aiming to deliver portable excellent audio solutions for people on-the-go, the X-mini™ CLEAR is packed with functionality to suit an increasingly mobile lifestyle, including:
- (i) Noise-cancelling microphone which filters background disturbance for better wireless telephone calls and/or lifestyle conferencing (such as Skype, Viber and Facetime) with your mobile phones or tablets or laptops
- (ii) Enabling wireless usage with NFC and Bluetooth connection for seamless pairing and wire-free usage that goes as far as 10m
- (iv) Smartphone charging with high-capacity 6600mAH battery, a dual-function for charging your devices and longer audio playback

For further versatility, the speaker also comes packaged in a sleek case built with a handle for easy carrying and a base stand so the speaker can simply be taken and displayed anywhere.
“We are very proud of our roots as Singapore brand. The local X-mini™ brand has become synonymous with the pocket-sized speaker wolrldwide. Like our home nation, the company believes in going beyond size and always pushing to excel, always pushing to improve our products. Yet it is important to recognise that X-mini™ is at its core, is an audio brand uniquely focussed on making better sound at every given size. Size does matter for sound, but because we have spent so many years seeking to make excellent sound in small circumstances, we know we can make an even greater sound in other circumstances. Our confidence is reflected first in our introduction of the X-mini™ ME and WE Speakers earlier this year which made pocket sized speakers even smaller, and now with our first larger portable form factor in the X-mini™ CLEAR. We absolutely love the design and have intentionally called this the X-mini™ CLEAR because it is to date the clearest speaker we have produced and the design confidently reflects this. Like Singapore, we’re constantly innovating and trying to exceed our own standards to deliver even better best-in-class speakers. “ said Ryan Lee, founder of XMI.
