First and foremost, don’t let its size fool you for one bit, mainly because it’s deceptively heavy for something that can be put in a backpack for travel. Heck, it’s built like a tank, which means that it can seriously knock out someone with its tough exterior and sturdy construction. Still, we have to say that the design is still on the bland side of things, seeing that its rectangular design with its rubbery body doesn’t make it the most aesthetically pleasing thing. Notable too, is the fact that the Pyle Sound Flow PWPBT60 Bluetooth speaker is marine grade shock resistant and water resistant. Although, with the latter, it’s meant to survive light splashes – not submersion!
Along one of its side, there are physical multi-function buttons for pause/play, track forward, track reverse, volume up, and volume down. Also nearby and hidden behind a flap is its microUSB port for charging and data connectivity. Pairing it with a Samsung Galaxy S4, we’re happy to report that this speaker is able to deliver some crisp tones with a meaningful level of bass. Even at the loudest volume setting, audio quality sounds robust without any distracting distortion. In fact, it’s better equipped to disperse audio than the comparable iLuv MobiOut speaker we checked out last week.
Even more surprising is the speaker’s $69.99 cost, which is a shocker to say the least – even more when we think about its audio quality and rugged construction. It’s affordable and produces good audio, so what more can you ask for?
