Ask your parents or your grandparents. Or if you are old enough, push back that fog of memory to the late 1970s and early 1980s, when the Boombox reigned supreme. Yes, there actually once was a time when people would carry a cassette player the size of a suitcase, weighing upwards of 20 lbs, on their shoulder. This was known as "portable music". My how times have changed!
While the times and technologies have changed, the goal remains the same - to produce high-quality, high-volume music in a portable form for use at parties, picnics, or other ad-hoc gatherings. This 5W Mini Boom Box with Bluetooth® from Monoprice fulfills that mission with a small, light-weight, easy to carry and easier to connect package.
This Boom Box is tiny in comparison to the old school boxes from the 70s and 80s, measuring only about 5 1/2" x 3 1/4" x 2 1/4". It connects to your audio source using the Bluetooth A2DP profile for music playback and to your phone using the HFP profile for phone calls. A small microphone is located in the top of the unit, allowing it to serve as a speakerphone device.
In addition to wireless Bluetooth audio, you can connect it to an audio source using a 3.5mm stereo audio cable (included). Unlike the old days, when you had to drop a dime on 8 or more D-cell batteries to operate it for only a few hours, this Boom Box uses an internal, rechargeable Li-polymer battery. The battery is charged from any standard USB charging source using a mini USB cable (included). The speaker can be used while it is charging.
The unit produces 5 watts of audio power with a frequency response from 70 Hz to 18 KHz, more than enough to fill a room or small outdoor space with high-quality music!
