Before even charging the Divoom Voombox Travel Bluetooth Speaker I couldn't help but notice the heavy/rugged feel. The speaker weighs 312 grams (just over 11 ounces) and has five rubber rings that circle the unit. The speaker reminds me of a grenade because of the shape and circular clip on top.
Read on for the Divoom Voombox Travel Review.
The sound is pretty darn good for the price and size of the speaker. The Divoom Voombox Travel uses a single 2-inch speaker (and a 2-inch passive radiator) which means everything from the highs to lows are handled by this one speaker. Base sounds better when the unit is sitting on a flat surface with the main speaker pointing upwards. If you turn it up too loud however it will tend to vibrate and can even walk around a bit if the song has heavy bass. I haven't tested out the water-resistant feature just yet, but I am curious just how much splashing the speaker can take.
There are four buttons on the Voombox Travel batched together in pairs. The plus/minus are used to raise and lower the volume as well as change music tracks forward/backward. The other two buttons are power and the multifunction button for answering phone calls and pausing the music.

– playback time is 6 hours
– 550mA 3.7 volt battery
– Bluetooth 4.0

Good – Fairly priced at $49.95. Rugged and water resistant. Bluetooth 4.0 and six hours of playback time. Built-in metal clip. Loud volume and built-in microphone for conference calls.
Not so good – The passive bass radiator causers the unit to vibrate and dance around at higher volumes. Combined charging/audio cable for non-Bluetooth devices. A bit of Chinglish in the manual, not the worst I have seen though.
Would I buy it again – Sure. It is a great rugged bluetooth speaker for the price.
