For months now, my go-to ear buds have been my BassBuds.  The sound is crystal clear, the fit is perfect, and they never tangle….  So I’m very excited about the newest product from the makers of BassBuds…  the BassBoomz portable speaker.

In my world, a portable speaker is a must, and for years I have been loyal to my JBL, but my world changed when I got the BassBoomz portable speaker.  First and foremost, it’s convenient.  It is smaller than my fist and lightweight so it fits into my purse.  It is rechargeable, and my JBL had to either be plugged in or used *gasp* batteries.  Most importantly, the BassBoomz speaker offers a wired connection or a Bluetooth connection; so it can pretty much connect to anything in our home.

This was my first time connecting Bluetooth anything to my phone (I know, I’m living in the dark ages), and I couldn’t believe how easy it was.  I turned the speaker on and clicked connect on my Bluetooth and immediately my living room was full of sound.  Not just sound, rich, crystal clear sound.   With the twist and release Bass Expansion system, I was able to get sound quality equal to any good speaker system on the market.  The sound is equally good on music, video, or audiobooks.  I do, however encourage one to get an equalizer app for music (which music lovers would do regardless) to optimize the listening experience.  The high grip base of the speaker prevents vibration, which is a big plus compared to a lot of other portable speakers on the market

I am also impressed with the range when connecting through Bluetooth.  I can bring the speaker upstairs and leave my device downstairs and it even stays connected when I bring the speaker outside.  The speaker also comes with a 3.5 mm audio jack output.  The sound quality is consistent regardless of whether you are using a wired or wireless connection.  The rechargeable Li-ion battery lasts for about 5 hours, which makes this the perfect on the go speaker for any device.  The only hiccup I found in the product was while playing and charging through my laptop at the same time.  There was a high pitched tone that I was able to alleviate by charging through the wall jack while playing on the lap top.

Overall, this is another wonderful product from the makers of BassBuds and is definitely a beach must have this summer.  For the month of march, if you use the codeBBZ017545 you will save £30.00 (about $45.00) off retail price at checkout.  Learn more at
