Mighty returns with a redesigned offline Spotify player
When Mighty debuted last year, it delivered iPod Shuffle-like offline playback for Spotify users. In other words, it brought a tiny music player to the streaming generation. The original model mostly delivered on its promises, carrying more than 1000 songs so users could leave their phones behind on a run or during a workout. Mighty wasn't without its flaws though, and the company says it addressed many of the major hiccups with version 2.0, which is called the Mighty Vibe.
Don't let the name fool you, Mighty Vibe is very similar to that original device and still costs $86. At glance, the new version looks nearly identical to its predecessor, but there are some cosmetic changes. The most obvious is color. The original Mighty came in black, white or orange, but for the Mighty Vibe, you'll be able to choose from black, red or blue.
The main two changes inside the Mighty Vibe are connectivity and battery life. First, the company promises more reliable Bluetooth thanks to a new antenna. On the first model, you really had to keep Mighty close to your headphones if you wanted to maintain the connection. During my review, I got spotty connectivity when I moved the device to my pocket as opposed to being clipped on my shirt. It really wasn't ideal. However, in the few days I've had the Vibe, I can already tell the Bluetooth range is much improved (I've been testing with the Jabra Elite 65t). Not only can I carry it in my pocket, but I can leave it on my desk and walk to the next room without interruption. Mighty also says this new device works with all Bluetooth devices. There were a few audio gadgets the first model wouldn't play nice with.
