VAVA VOOM 23 Outdoor Rugged Bluetooth Speaker – Review

This is a hard-wearing speaker from a company called VAVA. It’s rated as “IPX6” so should, in theory, cope with a blast of water from a jet plus dust and sand. Basically, they’re offering a speaker that you can attach to you bag and go camping with here, …

Philips EverPlay Bluetooth speakers. Let’s have a look

I’m sitting in the sunshine and it’s about 30 degrees Celsius right now. To be honest I’m going a bit delirious and moving the “Coolsmartphone office” to a bench outside was perhaps not my best idea. Anyway, with summer here I picked out one message from my 5.4 …

iClever BoostSound BTS07 Bluetooth Speaker – Review

Remember our BTS08 review from the other day? Well, this is the smaller brother. It’s definitely easier to carry around and is a lot lighter. Likewise, it’s thinner at both ends and I found it pretty easy to fit into a coat pocket. This one, unlike the BTS08, …

iClever BoostSound BTS08 Bluetooth Speaker – Review

Available from Amazon US for $49.99, this definitely isn’t one of those speakers you pop into your coat pocket. Measuring in ay 25.15 x 11.18 x 13.21 cm it’s definitely got some “meat” to it, and I mean that in a good way. Up top, four touch-control keys …
