One of the things i love about Greece and Attica in particular is that we hundreds of thousands of visitors each year and thanks to some of them i always seem to come in contact with electronic devices which i may have missed otherwise. So a few nights back while i was walking at the beach (trying to cool down after spending several hours performing tests on HDDs and SSDs) a guy ran past me carrying a large backpack on which he had a tiny portable wireless speaker secured with the help of a carabiner. That speaker offered very little in terms of volume and audio quality but i did like it’s very tiny size (and in part the carabiner feature) and so i was quite glad to receive an email by TDK a couple of days later asking me if I’d like to test their latest A12 TREK Micro Wireless Speaker which aside the tiny size it also shares one more similarity with that speaker, it makes use of a carabiner.

The TDK A12 TREK Micro is a tiny IP64 splash=proof certified Bluetooth v2.1+EDR compatible wireless speaker with a power output of 3W through a single 40mm dynamic driver paired with a 60mm passive radiator. It also features support for NFC (Near Field Communications) compatible devices, carries a nickel–metal hydride rechargeable battery that gives it up to 6 hours of playback time and comes ready with TDKs TrueWireless Stereo technology which allows the end user to pair the A12 with another A12 for stereo wireless sound (unfortunately although very interesting as a feature we only received one sample so we were unable to test that functionality). TDK however has packed even more features into the tiny A12 TREK Micro so let's take a closer look and see what these are.
