Instead of donning the cutthroat speaker design, Divoom differentiates the Bluetune-solo by making available in a rainbow of color options – such as the shimmering blue color of our model. With its cylindrical shape, we really can’t say that it’s original, but nevertheless, we’re thankful it’s not a typical cookie cutter speaker design. However, it’s worth mentioning that it packs some noticeable weight, which doesn’t make it a candidate fit to travel in your pockets.
On the top surface, its grill tucks away the speaker beneath it, which employs the Bluetune-solo X-Bass Sound System for nothing more than pumping out those lovable bass tones that our ears enjoy hearing. Also, there’s a multi-function button nearby that accepts/rejects phone calls and places the speaker into pairing mode. Along the rim, we appreciate the added touch of incorporating blue LED lights to match the paint job of the speaker – while also adding a subtle glow in the dark. Finally, there’s a microUSB port to charge its internal battery, but more importantly, we can use the included proprietary USB cable to daisy chain it to other speakers. Naturally, the 3.5mm port on the speaker itself helps to achieve the feature.
Testing it out ever so quickly, we’ll admit that there’s a slight shrill to its audio quality at the loudest volume setting, but regardless of that, bass tones continue to maintain their integrity. Therefore, it’s never underpowered at any moment. Overall, it’s something meant to be used in smaller or confined spaces, seeing that its output isn’t close to the level of some other comprehensive speakers. Still, some will no doubt like its portability, strong bass output, and 8 hours of battery life. Heck, it’s not too bad at $50.
