I love a good portable Bluetooth speaker. Generally I look for a great sound, and portability. While not everyone goes for it, I also like a Bluetooth speaker to have call making abilities too. I mean, it is only a microphone! The Olixar BoomBrick Bluetooth Speaker fulfils these requirements, and more!
- High fidelity audio for rich, room filling sound
- Passive radiator for a great bass sound
- Stylish and portable design
- Bluetooth and line-in connectivity so you can connect any audio device
- Automatic Bluetooth pairing function, no passwords required
- Built-in microphone for hands-free calls and conference calling
- Built-in 1200mAh Li-ion rechargeable battery
Look and feel
The speaker isn’t very far from the usual look Olixar go with in their speakers. A soft touch rubbery exterior can be found on the top and sides, while the front features a designed grill to make this look extra special.
The back has a DC in (micro USB) for charging and an aux in to let you play music via a 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable.
The top includes the label as well as convenient controls to play and control your music, as well as take and make calls.
While this isn’t exactly the lightest, and feels a bit heavier for its size, it is still portable and can fit in most handbags and purses.
The package includes a 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable so you can play this with any of your devices, even if they don’t have Bluetooth.
The setup process was increasingly simple. Turn on the device (you my have to charge it, or at least make sure it is sufficiently charged), and then look for it in your phone’s Bluetooth section. Find, click, pair. It should pair with your phone next time you turn it on.
Play back and controls
The play back and controls on this are as simple as it gets. Not much to add apart from the fact that they all deliver what they say.
The sound quality is where this speaker really impresses. Being a very reasonable price and small size doesn’t really get in the way. You get clear tones, and a great bass! Definitely recommended for a few shakes and jiggles in your party.
The battery life is pretty decent. You get about 8 hours out of a 3 hour charge.
