The WinBridge T8 comes with two rechargeable wireless microphones made of plastic ( including the grille mesh) with internal batteries that can be recharged via the USB-A port of the  WinBridge T8 machine. You can also plug in a flash drive into the USB-A port to listen to audio. The USB-C port is just for input charging (10 watts max). Button functionality includes voice sound effects , tracks skipping and play pause.

As well as a fun karaoke machine, the WinBridge T8 can be used as a portable bluetooth speaker and PA system to amply the voice when speaking to a crowd of people at a venue or outdoor public gathering (e.g. weddings, demonstrations, etc). Being a karaoke machine, the WinBridge T8 integrates RGBs for cool disco lighting. You can choose between a variety of dynamic color changing effects and, you can also turn off the RGB lighting. There doesn't seem to be any static single color RGB effects options. 

In bluetooth mode, you can connect the WinBridge T8 to a bluetooth-enabled device such as a phone, laptop or computer. Battery life is about 3 hours with RGB ON and 4 hours with RGB OFF. The internal battery takes 3 hours to recharge. The microphones take 5 hours to recharge. 

As well as buttons, the WinBridge T8 bluetooth speaker features a bass port (on the rear) and rubber isolation feet on the bottom. Dimensions of the T8 karaoke machine are 25cm long x 22cm high (including handle) x 13.5cm deep. The weight is 2.3kg. The grab handle is 8cm wide. The microphones are 10cm long and weigh 145 grams. 
As far as audio performance, the WinBridge T8 has a woofer/tweeter setup - one 5 inch loudspeaker driver and two tweeters - delivering tons of volume power - enough to fill a large room. The sound performance is good too with clear highs, plenty of bass and no distortion even at 100% volume. 
The sound stage is naturally narrow due to the small size of the enclosure. The WinBridge T8 can be powered via the internal rechargeable battery so, you can use the WinBridge T8 outdoors for karaoke or listening to music. You can also power it via mains power or power bank, which gives the best sound performance.
