Kinivo BTX350 Wireless Bluetooth Speaker hands-on
We haven’t come across any of the products from accessory maker Kinivo, but it seems appropriate that one of its Bluetooth speakers is the first one that’s on the chopping block for us to check out this Monday morning. Being a portable Bluetooth speaker solution, the Kinivo BTX350 is already facing some stiff competition from a field that’s already crowded. Luckily though, its $39.99 pricing might be enough to help it stand out.

Checking out its design, it’s hardly refreshing or original, since it takes the safe road of sporting an all too practical speaker design. For starters, its façade is dominated by its fabric mesh speaker grill, which so happens to tuck away its speaker, class-D amplifier, and passive subwoofer. Along the top edge of the Kinivo BTX350, its square sized physical button all line up in unison – these include its power, pause/play/pair, source, track forward, track reverse, bass, volume up, and volume down buttons. Finally, the rear is home to its removable rechargeable lithium-ion battery, audio-in port, charging LED indicator, and microUSB port to charge its internal battery.

Pairing it to a Samsung Galaxy S4, its audio quality is ample enough to spread its tones throughout a confined space – like a desk or small office. However, it’s not powerful enough to encompass larger spaces, like a living room or entertainment center, since it sounds extremely strained at the loudest setting. So yeah, its best audio quality is produced towards the middle-high position, as some subtle bass tones help to accompany its output. As for battery life, the manufacturer claims it’ll pull in roughly 5 hours out of a single charge. Like we said folks, its $40 price is undoubtedly its strongest asset, seeing that it’s not going to drain your pockets.
