Sharp CP-USB50 USB Mini Sound Bar Review

Background

Many many years back, before the time of Bluetooth speakers came into prominence, I was walking around an electronics store looking around at stuff. While walking around, I notice a portable USB soundbar that was selling cheap. It was called the Sharp CP-USB50 USB Mini Sound Bar. It got me interested and since it was cheap, I decided to purchase it to try it out.

The Product

The Sharp CP-USB50 USB Mini Sound Bar has an all-black color design. It measures about 26cm in length. It comes along with a micro USB cable and cloth case for you to keep the soundbar.

Here are some pictures that I've taken on this soundbar:

Usage and Experience

I recalled using the Sharp CP-USB50 USB Mini Sound Bar a few times after I bought it. At that time my laptop sound wasn't very loud, and this soundbar is portable hence it is something useful to bring along when in need. The sound was okay back then. But as of now, after years of not using it, I tried using it again. This time around it sounds muffled or not crisp. It gets worst when putting the volume to full. 

The soundbar is a plug-and-play device. To use it, simply plug the soundbar to the USB port of your computer and you are good to go.

Conclusion

Overall, the Sharp CP-USB50 USB Mini Sound Bar is a yesteryear product. With this kind of design, I think it will be nice if it is a current product which comes with Bluetooth, battery-operated, and less the terrible sound output. This product I believe is not available anywhere anymore, I can't really find any website online that still sells it. Hence it's better to look at the current offering out there in the market.
