Sevenaire Saturn 360 Bluetooth speaker review

Back then, when I went to a high street retailer and asked for speakers to be kept in the living room, the store manager showed me bookshelf speakers. I came back and understood why all speakers look the same as if they were made to appeal to a wide range of users. Apparently the people of Sevenaire were also looking for the same answers, but they did something to make the speakers happy.

The Saturn 360 is unlike anything you’ve seen, a speaker that doubles as a table. It’s an original idea that should be appreciated. But does the concept of mixing speakers with furniture work? I tried to find the answer in my review.

Sevenaire Saturn 360 review: design

It’s a table with a loudspeaker. This is how I would like to define the Saturn 360. At a time when most traditional speakers look a certain way, it’s exciting to see that Sevenaire has taken a different path in designing a speaker that grabs attention. There is no shortage of speakers on the market, but the Saturn 360 is like a piece of furniture. It has personality – and the Saturn becomes part of your personal space, with the speaker fading somewhat in the background. Sevenaire sells the table top / enclosure and table legs as part of the package. As I said before, the speaker can be used as a bedside table or can be stored anywhere in the room. The top circular part is covered with real wood and there is fabric around the whole.

The Saturn 360 speaker can be purchased in two finishes: a light ash wood top with a light brown fabric or a dark walnut with a gray fabric. The unit I reviewed comes with a dark walnut wood finish. It won’t be to everyone’s taste as the overall styling is a bit conservative. Overall the speaker is sturdy and solid. Setting up the enclosure is a short process. Once you’ve opened the box, take the speaker / speaker side and flip it over, then attach three wooden legs; they can be easily screwed into the base – no tools are required.

A trio of control buttons for power, play / pause and volume are placed on the top / speaker. On the back, you’ll notice two USB ports that can charge devices like your smartphone, the power adapter’s barrel connector, and a 3.5mm line-out connector.

Interestingly, the Saturn has a built-in 6,600mAh battery that can be charged with the included charger, meaning that even if the power isn’t there, music can still be played. It lasts about 6-7 hours on a single charge. Also, above the speaker, the wooden part can charge your iPhone 12 or iPhone 13 Pro Max. Keep in mind, however, that the Qi charger is a bit slow but that option is at least there.

The Saturn 360 supports Bluetooth, so it’s easy to play audio from an iPhone, Android smartphone, or PC. The speaker comes with a built-in HD microphone, which means you can attend voice calls. Unfortunately, Saturn does not support Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant. It’s a bummer, but it doesn’t matter too much to consumers, I would say. If you buy two of the Saturn speakers, they can be used as a stereo pair to become a kind of party speaker.

Sevenaire Saturn 360 review: sound

Of course, you can praise its construction and aesthetics, but they are secondary. No matter how you look at the Saturn 360, it is primarily a speaker. Housing six speakers and four bass radiators, the speaker is capable of producing 360-degree sound. While the speaker is quite capable, it doesn’t directly match Apple’s now-defunct HomePod or Amazon’s Echo Studio. To listen Here is the sun through The Beatles, the speaker goes up high with clear vocals and acoustic guitars. However, it doesn’t handle bass well as it tends to dominate vocals. But I think the Saturn 360 can fill a living room or bedroom with sound, and it’s capable of getting pretty loud.

Sevenaire Saturn 360 review: should you buy it?

If you’re looking for a decent speaker for a bedroom or office – and if you want something aesthetic, the Sevenaire Saturn 360 makes the cut. It’s refreshing to see a new take on speakers, something I would like other brands to notice. For many consumers, it makes a lot more sense to buy a speakerphone with a built-in assistant that doesn’t cost much. But for me, the Saturn 360 is more of an experimental product.
