Boomboxes - brilliant sound for when you're on the go

The widespread use of wireless speakers requires more and more power in small equipment.

The devices we have on offer are equipped with numerous interfaces and can be connected to a wide variety of devices.

In addition to playing your favourite songs, you can also use the boom box to connect to the radio. The device has a built-in radio that's easy to use to search for stations. The basic functions include, of course, the ability to play CDs as well as sound customization.

Boom box: a high level of comfort and an attractive design

One of the main features of the boom box is that they're easy to take with you. To this end, the devices have a padded shoulder strap or a useful carry handle. That means it's comfortable and quick to take with you. Additional features such as a rubberized case and a protective aluminium structure add to the device's robustness. The corresponding models are not affected by external factors, which is vital when it comes to transportation. In addition to the functional aspects, devices like a boom box or a 90s style ghetto blaster are visually appealing. Details like LED light effects turn these portable systems into stylish objects that catch the eye. Do you like the styles of the past? Then a retro-style boom box is a right choice for you. Regardless of how it looks, differing performance features can come in handy when it comes to deciding on which to get. That includes, for example, wattage as well as the battery life. Additional highlights, like ports for connecting your guitar or microphone, are the perfect complement to the many comprehensive features.

Main features of a modern boom box

Before choosing a particular model, it is important to know the main features to look for, so that you don't get disappointed when you start using it. There are many types of boom box. The larger the speaker, the higher the volume without distorting the sound, but of course at the cost of portability. It may even require plugging in to the main power supply, even if the music is transmitted via Bluetooth, and if it is battery-operated, you should check the battery life. There's no point in buying a quality speaker if the battery runs out right away. The average duration is around 10 hours at medium volume.

On a more technical level, you should check how many drivers (sound transmitters) the speaker has: ideally you should have at least one for each frequency range (low, medium and high), but more advanced speakers may have two or more per range. To send music wirelessly via Bluetooth it must be compressed, but there are quality codecs that compress the sound little or not at all, such as aptX-HD, LDAC, SBC or AAC. We recommend you to st check that the bluetooth speaker you buy accepts them, especially aptX, although the player will also need to use this technology.

In terms of extra features, check whether the speaker has a subwoofer to boost the bass. You may also want to incorporate your own player and memory to save songs or use a SD card reader, so you won't need your mobile phone or PC to play music. Some of our models, such as the Soundblaster M offer this possibility, offering maximum versatility to play music from different formats.

If you are going to use it from a PC, check whether the computer has a Bluetooth connector. New laptops and PCs often have them, but others don’t. In this case you can buy a bluetooth adapter or dongle for a little price, but make sure it is Bluetooth 4.0 or 5.0: the newer it is the better the transmission is optimized for longer range and music is heard without cuts.

Connectivity

No matter which Boombox you choose, you need to make sure it has the connectivity interfaces you use most these days. A must in this wireless age, Bluetooth will allow you to sync the player with your Smartphone, tablet and even laptop if it has such an interface to play your favourite mp3 files and music lists. Taking into account the different storage devices that we generally use, the perfect boombox for you should include a USB port and if it has an SD memory reader it would be much better, so that your connection possibilities are extended even further, giving the equipment versatility.

How long do boom box batteries last?

In the 80s it was common to see children gathered, sitting on the stairs of their building with a ghetto blaster listening to their favourite music while they chatted and had fun for which the player needed to have enough autonomy. In today's boom boxes, battery life is still just as important to guarantee the portability of the equipment without depending on an electrical connection. Most players of this type use 1.5V UM1 batteries, generally using four units but also including an electrical connection. However, you can also choose more conventional speakers that use a rechargeable battery and are powered either by a USB cable or a traditional electrical connector.

Splash protection

If you plan to use your boom box at pool parties, at the beach, and on all occasions where accidental contact with liquids may occur, it is important that the device is protected from splashes or an accidental fall into the water.

Design

Without a doubt, the appeal of the modern Boombox is that it emulates the design of the classic ghetto blaster so that it steals the gaze of all who pass by. With these players you can share your music with friends wherever you go and you will not go unnoticed. The novelty of our Boom boxes is that they are compact and lightweight so that you don't have to carry them on your shoulder like the young people of the 80s. There are also teams with a fun set of LED lights that change colours and will liven up any meeting with friends with a disco effect. As for the size of the equipment you will choose the one that suits you best and that will define how much the equipment costs because the price range is very varied.
