The build quality on the Gravastar Mars Pro is amazing. Not only that the new color scheme of the Pro model gives off a more sinister appearance that I really like.
The Mars Pro is a hefty all-metal unit, and it’s very, very cool. Having owned the original speaker I had no worries about the build quality and thankfully not a lot had changed. This is still a seriously well-made speaker.
The body is a large orb that stands on top of its mech legs that have limited articulation. On top of the orb is the control panel, and it also houses the large 2.5 inch dynamic driver and rear bass port.
The legs can fold. All of them for a tucked-powered-down look, but really, this position is designed to make the Gravastarr Mars easier to transport.
I like to use the Mars Pro in two positions, first with all three legs extended or second with the two front legs extended and the rear folded, which gives a more upward direction to the driver.
I find this is good to use on tables and countertops.
The legs have thick rubber dampening pads on them, which grounds the speaker and prevents internal vibrations from the speaker and surface vibrations. This, in combination with the weight, makes it sound way better than cheap, lightweight offerings from other companies.
The RGB lighting is in 6 different locations and can be toggled on and off using a switch at the back. It lights up the speaker, legs, and body.
The only less-than-premium part may be the 3 plastic buttons on top; it’s not that I have any long-term concerns, but the use of metal here would have been a good addition.
Overall I think it’s a fantastic-looking speaker for people who are the border of traditional designs, want something fun, or are just general SciFi fans. The construction is exceptional, and the Gravastar Mars Pro feels like a premium high-end product. It might not be to everyone’s taste, it is to mine, and trust me; the photos do no justice to how good it looks.
