This portable speaker is sleek looking with its glossy black cover. There’s a white version as well
In operation mode, the cover is now becomes a stand.
The boom boom speaker is very slim and fits nicely into almost any storage compartment, for example the inner pockets of your coat or the front pouch on your bag.
The construct is of plastic and it’s very light. Overall it someone reminds me of a ladies’ make-up kit.
Being a slim design device means it comes with some sacrifice. As you can see, I had to use the Choiix PowerFort to supply the juice for it to work as it does not come with an internal battery source like the XMI X-mini 2. Basically you need to connect it to a USB port to power it.
Being lightweight and of plastic construct, the unit lacks the punch of bass. I don’t find the sound being rich or being booming low pitch.
I find it very hard to justify spending RM 90 on this speaker. The lack of a built-in battery like the XMI X-mini limits the usage of the Boom Boom to only devices with USB port. Forget about using it with any mobile device other than a notebook or netbook, or perhaps pads that come with USB port.
It’s slim but it holds a large foot print whether in storage or in speaker mode, which I think it’s pretty risky if your luggage or whatever that’s carrying this device is susceptible to bending.
I’ll take the X-mini over this one.
