What is a boom box?
Boombox is a term for mobile speakers that are battery powered and can be connected to the smartphone via Bluetooth or an aux cable. Whether at home, on the beach or camping; with a Boombox you can enjoy your music everywhere! Even though Bluetooth speakers are significantly smaller
Which Boombox is the right one for me?
However, there are some things to consider when buying a Boombox. The offer is large and confusing. From the simple entry level to the premium model, you can find everything in department stores and online shops. So that you do not stand in the rain when buying a new device, I give you a comprehensive overview of what you should pay attention to when buying a Boombox.
1. where(for) are you most likely to use the Boombox?
The most important question is where and what you want to use a mobile speaker for. If you want to use it primarily at home in your living room, you should place less emphasis on the size of the speaker and more on the sound quality. If you travel a lot and want to take your music with you wherever you go, you should choose a smaller and more portable speaker. What exactly do you have in mind? Do you want to take your music to the beach for just a few hours or go camping for the weekend? Accordingly, it is important to make sure the battery life is adequate. Battery life ranges from 8 hours to 24 hours of music at a time! You are a water rat and like to spend time in open air pools, lakes and beaches? No problem. Buy a waterproof boombox and take your music to the water without worries. There are also models suitable for sports aficionados. An example are loudspeakers with a clip. So you can easily attach the box to your bike saddle or your trousers. For the real party people among you, there are even boomboxes with built-in, programmable LED lights that light up to the beat of the music. So you become the center of every party.
Second message or call?
Do you prefer to write messages or do you also like to make phone calls? For “frequent callers” there are extra loudspeakers with hands-free function. Thanks to built-in microphones, you can make calls in first-class sound quality via your Boombox.
3. do you attach great importance to design and prestige?
If you are a design lover who values prestige, I recommend boom boxes from Bang and Olufsen or Bose. Because of the extraordinary elegant design, they are definitely an eye-catcher for everyone. The disadvantage: you have to pay a price for the design and the prestige value that such a loudspeaker brings with it.
4. How much money do you want to spend?
And this brings us to the last question, namely how much money you want to spend. Depending on your wishes and needs, you can get good boomboxes from about 40 € to 350 €. If you are looking for a good “allrounder” loudspeaker, you have to calculate with a price of about 150 €. At this budget the price/performance ratio is best.
As you can see, there is a lot to consider when buying a Boombox. For more information on this topic and a product filter that allows you to filter Bluetooth speakers according to all your wishes, check out the Boombox review.
