Audio and Call Quality:

Ugh! There’s nothing more than pitiful audio quality to dampen our mood, but that’s exactly what we’re exposed to with the DJ Slims. It’s a sad fact, but that’s simply the reality here – so don’t expect to be knocked off your socks! To be blunt, its audio quality is horrendously flat, so much so that as it lacks any exciting elements with its output. Come to think about it, we’re just left wondering why, why it’s just bad. Its volume output is strong, but at the loudest setting, strain is so profound that it makes it irritating to listen. Finally, it lacks even the most miniscule amount of bass – like we said, it’s just flat in overall tone!

Don’t hold your breath with call quality either, especially when we experience the same terrible results as before. Indeed, the high volume output of the DJ Slims help to stem the atrocious flat voices we hear out of it, but it’s not enough to get us to ask our callers to repeat themselves constantly. On the other end of the line, things don’t get any better, as the built-in microphone picks up all sorts of background noise – so don’t even think about using this in noisy environments!

Battery Life:

Rated to deliver between 8 to 9 hours of battery life from its rechargeable lithium-ion battery, we’re able to get within its target range. Specifically, after setting it consistently to a more pleasant middle volume setting, we’re able to accumulate a total of 8 hours and 15 minutes of battery over the course of a few days – and that’s primarily from streaming music from a Samsung Galaxy S4.


You’re crazy to even remotely tinker the idea of picking up the DJ Slims, well, that’s unless you dig its different looking design and low price point of $69.95. However, we’d recommend to actually either save up a tiny bit more money to pick up something more comprehensive than this, or on the other end of the spectrum, spend less on a cheaper one that delivers somewhat the same quality. Frankly, we’d stick to the former than anything else of course. In the end, it’s simply the atrocious audio quality of the DJ Slims that alienate us from using it as a daily driver. Heck, we’re certain that even novice DJs would steer clear of this!
