Soundmatters, the manufacturer of the Dash A, makes the bold claim that their portable Bluetooth speaker is the world’s flattest. Bold claims are nothing new in advertising, but with a height of only 0.62”, they may actually be right. The device measures 6.5” X 2.1” X 0.62” and weights in at only 6.9 ounces, so the Dash A is small all-around, and as portable as any Bluetooth speaker you will find. In fact, it is so small that Sountmatters refers to it as a soundbar, rather than a speaker.
The intent is that users will place the Dash A below their devices with the sound projected upward, as pictured above, making it a unique spin on the traditional Bluetooth speaker. The Dash A also has 10 hour battery life, which is very good for a device this size. It also has a unique setup to aid in boosting the bass, which is always a challenge with any small speaker. Soundmatters uses the battery as a passive sound radiator to aid in projecting bass, which they refer to as BassBattery.
As for the rest, the Dash A also fills all of the other roles we have come to expect from portable Bluetooth speakers. It has a mic, so it is able to function as a speakerphone. It can accept input from an Aux cable if Bluetooth isn’t your thing. It charges via MicroUSB, like the vast majority of other Bluetooth-enabled accessories. Basically, it covers all the ground you expect from a quality Bluetooth speaker, just in a smaller, thinner package with great battery life.
