On the way to acoustic Olympus: everything about the Nyne brand

Hi, Giktayms! Perhaps, one of the adherents of acoustic equipment probably at least once, but heard about the company Nyne - the American brand with the European spirit and 30 years of experience in engineering and design work in the field of stationary and portable sound. Now the company focuses on high-quality wireless speakers and set its sights on a much wider market, so it's time to get acquainted with this brand closer, especially in Russia, it just came out.

Three decades of development in Silicon Valley were not in vain - Nyne uses all its achievements to produce the largest and loudest Bluetooth-speakers on the market, which are resistant to bad weather. The brand is a joint offspring of several "veterans" of the Valley, so the device produces a decent level. To make it easier to choose from the range, the manufacturer initially divided its speakers into three series - X, C and P (almost like Mercedes Benz, only cost much less).

Serial C is positioned by the company as speakers mainly for indoor parties, but at the same time they can easily be taken out onto a summer terrace, and the sound will be no worse than, as the manufacturer claims. In this case, all models are waterproof with an impressive margin of volume. In Russia, the ruler is represented by the BASS PRO column: the device communicates with a smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth 4.0 (range up to 30 meters), while it has IPX-4 water protection, 3.5 mm aux input and output, the battery life is 10 hours.

The speaker can also be used for hands-free calling due to the presence of a microphone (do not disconnect it every time from the iPhone when they call you), and with Android devices it can be easily connected using NFC. Illuminated buttons located on top.

If the C-series is more for home use, then the Nyne X series is not terrible to take for a walk, to the pool, to the beach, or even to the mountains. This is where the loudest and at the same time the largest portable Bluetooth speaker in the world - ROCK - is presented . And she really is very big.

The speaker also connects to other devices via Bluetooth 4.0, a 60-watt 4.1 sound system with active speakers (2 tweeter, 2 mid-range, subwoofer) is responsible for the sound. You can carry this giant with the help of a hidden carrying handle, there is NFC for one-touch connection, you can use it as an external battery for charging mobile devices. With its size, the ROCK has IPX-3 water protection and works up to 12 hours without recharging.

Agree, the next creation of figures from China is not at all like, and the very idea of ​​combining a seemingly portable device with such dimensions is quite original. The Nyne speakers clearly show common features - here, for example, controls for convenience are displayed on the top panel, and all connectors are located at the back.

The REBEL column from the same series is slightly smaller in size, while the manufacturer positions it as the loudest portable speaker with a 2.1 sound system (40 W). The built-in microphone is used to use the device as a headset, Power Bank - for charging other devices, IPX-3, NFC and Bluetooth version 4.0 are also included. Together with the column in the box, by the way, put a universal power adapter with plugs to almost all countries of the world. When traveling, this feature is definitely useful.

Like other wireless speakers of this manufacturer, the REBEL controls are located on the top, and the ports, including AUX, LINE OUT and others, are neatly hidden under the back cover. Otherwise, the column would not be able to get IPX-3 certification.

This "baby" is enough for 12 hours of work from the built-in battery, while it is the golden mean of the X series - between the ROCK and Edge speakers.

In fact, the Edge of all this diversity is the smallest, but you should not discount it - on the contrary, for many this option can be optimal. This column is protected from water according to the IPX-5 standard, has a built-in LED flashlight and ... a universal mount on the steering wheel of a bicycle, so this solution does not hold portability. Sound system 3.0, consisting of two speakers, one tweeter and two passive radiators, produces a loud and clear sound, according to the manufacturer. For gatherings in nature or a small hike - the most it.

Despite its small size, the speaker also has a microphone for hands-free calling, it can act as an external battery, and also supports Bluetooth 4.0 with NFC. But how REBEL looks on a bike, LED flashlight is convenient to use for traveling in the dark.

And in this picture you can visually compare the sizes of all three columns of the X series:

Although so far these are all the columns that Nyne brought to Russia, in fact there are a little more of them. So, for example, in the X-series there is an AQUA column of a very interesting shape, which is designed to float in the water next to the user and at the same time produce high-quality sound. The device is IPX-7 protected (shock and dust proof), it works up to 10 hours on one charge, but most importantly, with such acoustics you can have a party right in the pool or near the beach. In the latter case, however, it will be necessary to ensure that the column does not float to the open sea.

The C-series has in its arsenal a BASS column, which is essentially a simplified modification of BASS PRO, so there’s no particular point in dwelling on it for a long time. What you really want is real monsters representing the P - MAX, RACER and PERFORMER + series.

The youngest is RACER, it gives out 30 W, it can work for as long as 20 hours without recharging, it is completed with a microphone, built-in FM radio and USB ports. To hold a small wedding can be easily. PERFORMER + has a more interesting design, and even more powerful (70 W), also comes with a microphone, has ports for connecting a microphone and a guitar, a 6.5-inch driver and a 1.5-inch tweeter. 100-wadded column MAX is considered the loudest and largest speaker in the manufacturer’s arsenal, novice DJs will definitely appreciate.

As stated on the US manufacturer's website, the P-series will go on sale in a short time, which means it will get to Russia. It will be interesting to try for yourself what these “barrels” are capable of.

Nyne does not hide that it is now trying to make itself known in the portable sound market, and the manufacturer succeeds in doing so - the speakers are actively sold in such US retail chains as Best Buy, Walmart, CRUTCHFIELD, and also on Amazon. Whether the company will get the same army of fans in Russia is perhaps a matter of time, much will depend on pricing, and with originality and quality of performance everything is in order. We look forward to one of the columns for full testing.
