When the folks at folks at Boombotix sent me a Boombotix 2 wireless portable speaker I couldn’t have been more exited. I’d been talking about how awesome it’d be to have a portable radio/sound system with me while commuting or skating, and these guys were great enough to answer my prayers. At first I was a bit skeptical when I received this, thinking it wouldn’t be as loud as other online reviews had said. But after the Chain Gangsta tagged along with me all week, I can attest to its volume. This thing is very loud for its size. Loud enough whether you’re skating a mini ramp or battling with rush hour traffic. If you’re looking for even more volume, you have the option of buying a second and linking them via cable for twice the power. It’s also very light and compact, making it easy to always have loud tunes at quick access.
Standing at just over 3.5 inches, the Boombotix 2 is equipped with a 50mm driver and also has a small tweeter, to boot. It’s also got a nifty clip on the back which is perfect for attaching to your bag as you run errands. Plus, it’s so light you’ll barely notice it there. This particular speaker is wireless via Bluetooth and compatible with a bunch of devices including the iPhone, iPad, tablets and laptops. I love being able to keep my phone in my pocket or bag and not have to worry about wires. Oh yeah, you’ll also get a 1-year, no matter what, warranty with any Boombotix speaker.
