The Bayan 7 consists of a thick perspex plate with an 8-inch subwoofer in the centre of it. The rest of the speaker system is housed in the large, and heavy, square cube that’s attached. The perspex is a nice addition, and helps give the speaker something a bit different, but it’s prone to smudges and fingerprints so keep a cloth handy.
It’s a slightly odd shape that makes it a bit of a pain to move around, and it’s very weighty indeed. The weight can be accounted for by the steel frames which line the inside of the speaker housing, helping them to oscillate further.
Alongside the subwoofer, there are four other smaller speakers to help amplify the sound, and together they offer extremely loud, but crisp tunes. There are two docking ports for Apple products and around the back lies a connector for you to hook up your Android device.
The speak itself uses 120W twin amplifier technology and a five-way 2.1 channel configuration to offer paramount sound. When in full swing, the speaker offers euphoric sound, and with the subwoofer onboard you’ll be hard pressed to find a better quality bass.
As well as being used as a speaker, you can connect your Android device to the rear of the Bayan 7 as a charger, a handy feature and something which further adds to the appeal of the system. There’s a separate remote control to use with the speaker, all the necessary buttons are there, but it might be a little too small for some thumbs.
The overall quality of the speakers and configuration used in the 7 series is a credit to Bayan. It’s clear a lot of details have been accounted for, and despite how heavy the speaker is, the Bayan 7 is definitely an investment that’ll have you bouncing around in no time.
