The One Click is the oldest of the nomadic speakers of Libratone. To stand out, it relies on its modular and resistant design as well as on a quality 360 ° distribution. Will it seduce us as much as the excellent Zipp and Zipp Mini?

Our review


With its rounded shapes and sleek design, the One Click stays in the tone of the already known Libratone speakers. It consists of two parts: a solid base with two fabric grids and a large removable rubber part. The whole benefits from serious manufacturing with well-made finishes. In addition to its good general resistance to shocks and drops, the One Click offers increased resistance to splashing water (IPX4). The One Click can follow you without problem during your wanderings.

The speaker is not really compact and light, which is why we consider it as a transportable speaker. Its apparent simplicity hides a very interesting modular concept which facilitates transport and allows it to be hung everywhere. The rubber part conceals five locations (one above and two on each side) which allow it to accommodate a carabiner and / or a rubber strap. The latter can support the weight of the enclosure without any harm.

As usual, Libratone has integrated its faithful touch interface on its One Click. Even if it is not the most obvious to take in hand for neophytes (cf. our tests of the Zipp and Zipp Mini), it is very practical and reactive once mastered. It is also very complete: it is possible to control the listening volume, manage playback, calls, navigate between tracks, display the battery level and change the source.

To complete the experience, Libratone supports the One Click with a dedicated mobile application (iOS and Android). In addition to acting as a real remote control, it gives the possibility of linking two One Click wireless speakers and choosing from several equalization profiles.

The One Click can be connected via Bluetooth (4.0) or connected via the 3.5 mm mini-jack input hidden behind the rubber cover. The wireless connection is made very quickly and easily, in particular thanks to the luminous and audible indications which make it possible to follow its good progress. We also find the hands-free kit function via the integrated microphone, which does an honorable job. Our voice is relatively clear and distinct, while remaining fairly well detached from the surrounding noises. However, you have to stay within 2 meters to be a minimum understood.

Another good surprise in terms of autonomy, the enclosure surpasses the promises made by the manufacturer. Indeed, we were able to push its duration of use to almost 20 h, which is much more than the 12 h promised, and this with a very comfortable listening level. In the end, our only real regret is not finding a USB port for recharging, which is quite surprising given the size of the One Click.



All the sound performance of the One Click is based on a three inch woofer, a one inch tweeter and a bass radiator: a rather curious choice for a speaker that relies on a 360 ° broadcast. This is unfortunately felt when listening, especially because of the directivity of the tweeter and the woofer. We are much more faced with a mono rendering at 180 °, with a little more balance towards the rear face of the speaker.

The One Click offers a powerful, precise and warm sound rendering. Failing to flirt with the bass extremes for more depth, the speaker puts on a more present and rounder bass. This warm feeling is also due to the timidity of the treble, but it is not invasive. Fans of suave and soft voices will be served, as are those looking for a flattering look for cellos, basses, large percussions or even electric guitars on their neck pickups.

The mediums are not to be outdone, because they bring a beautiful presence and a good edge to all the sources which operate in this register, in particular as regards the voices. At very high volume and near the speaker, some notes may seem a little too incisive, for example around 2.9 kHz (note Fa7 / Fa # 7), but this remains very occasional. We can correctly distinguish the different layers of the scene. The different EQs offered by the application are subtle enough to be interesting in certain situations.

The One Click shows good power given its size. It can easily sound a room large enough for an aperitif with friends or an outdoor outing. Even at a very high level, it is difficult to fault it. Distortion remains particularly low across the spectrum, whether wired or wireless.

The communication latency in Bluetooth remains a little too high not to distinguish a difference between the image and the sound. However, this is still acceptable at this level, especially when it comes to viewing a video on the move.



Although the magic does not work as well as with the Zipp, the One Click remains a very interesting transportable speaker. It will appeal to those looking for an elegant and powerful speaker, which can be carried and hung everywhere. It lacks only a USB port, a true homogeneous 360 ° rendering and a little more contained Bluetooth latency to classify it among the very best.
