It is both louder and crisper at higher volumes as well. It is another class…to quote Spinal Tap, they’ve gone to 11 and further. As you can see in the video – the sound of the Boom at 1/3 is what the Box didn’t hit until 2/3rd of the way.
The accompanying iOS/Android app provides firmware updates, EQ customization and the ability to pair multiple speakers. Check out our full review of Mini Boom in the YouTube video below. Spoiler alert! We found it to be an incredible value. Early Amazon reviewers agree, rating it 4.5 out of 5 stars. Need an even bigger speaker? Take a look at the Mini’s big brother.
