Review: SpeeCup Bluetooth Speaker

SpeeCup

Bluetooth speaker maker SpeeCup recently sent me their eponymous product. We’ll describe both their name and the product in one go – when you say SpeeCup, say it quickly and somewhat mute the ‘p’ and you’ll send up with something that sounds much like ‘speaker’.
