Usage Of KitSound Boombar Bluetooth Speaker :-

To test this thing up we first charged it, as its manual says we have to charge it for three hours but it only took an hour to get it charge. Once its fully charged we had paired it with our Nokia Lumia 1020, pairing took hardly 20 seconds, its manual says on fully charge it can play song for 20 hours, we played song for 10 hours and it played without any issue which is good. If you don’t have bluetooth enabled device then you can use supplied 3.5 MM AUX cable.

This speaker comes with built-in passive radiator which extends its bass response of two speaker and produced impressive sound out of them. Due to its impressive design you can either put it flat or you can use plastic disk stand supplied with it and then it will give directional sound.

When we played music on KitSound BoomBar Bluetooth Speaker, it gave impressive sound but at some point when we put sound at high level we found sound a bit distorted. Its on-board controls just worked fine, we even accepted calls on it and were able to talk without any issue at all.

Pros :-

  • Nice design
  • Comes with nice carry case
  • Nice sound quality
  • Removable battery
  • Easy pairing

Cons :-

  • Some distortion at high volume

Final Verdict On KitSound Boombar Bluetooth Speaker :-

KitSound Boombar Bluetooth Speaker is a nice and inexpensive speaker which is light weight, its easy to carry as it comes with nice carry case in which all accessories along with speaker can fit and keep all things together. It has a replaceable battery which is something good and I had never seen such things in these kind of speakers. We also loved its disk stand which is small but useful.

This speaker comes at the cost of $42.49 at MobileFun.
