Another dazzling summer’s here, accommodation and transportation are already settled and all other holiday arrangements have been made; your bags are packed and you’re fully set to head off to your most relaxing vacation of the year. But wait, what about the music? You will certainly want to take it with you, won’t you? In case you’re short on packing space and have spent more money on all those vacation essentials than you originally planned, but are still unwilling to compromise on audio quality over size and price, we have just the right speaker for you. The latest release by Cambridge SoundWorks, prominent Massachusetts-based producer of high-end audio equipment, Oontz Angle Bluetooth speaker combines ultra-portability, sleek design, outstanding performance and high affordability to help you get the most of your holiday sound-wise.
Packed in a sleek-looking triangular box sizing 5.3 x 3 x 2.7 inches, the Oontz Angle is a tiny high-quality Bluetooth speaker which easily pairs with any given media device for amazing audio streaming within 30 feet of wireless range, so you can use it outdoors and indoors alike. When it comes to the built and materials used in production, Cambridge SoundWorks decided to stick to its well-known construction excellence and even managed to blend it all in a neat mini-box weighing as few as 9 ounces for an extremely lightweight and ultra-portable design.
Producing outstanding sound quality (with distinct mid-range and clear crisp highs) for a speaker of its miniature dimensions, Oontz Angle is a perfect audio output for your Apple gadgets (iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch), Samsung Galaxy devices (including Samsung Galaxy S3, S4 and Galaxy Note), as well as the MacBook,, Amazon Kindle Fire HD, HTC Droid and One S or Nexus 7 and Nexus 4. For lovers of ultimate speaker versatility, Oontz Angle will do an equally good job when paired with any other Bluetooth-enabled device that supports A2DP and AVRCP, including PC, laptops, tablets and Android smartphones, and it will also stream your music from non-Bluetooth media sources via the included 3.5mm audio line-in cable.
On top of its excellent speaker capacities, Oontz Angle also features a built-in microphone, allowing you to take hands-free calls from your iPhone and Android smartphones (ones that support HFP) while still listening to your favorite tracks. This feature can sure come in handy on any trip as you will no longer have to rely on your regular phone speaker at all times. Fitted with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery which you can juice up from the included micro-USB connector cable, Oontz Angle will deliver some 10 hours of playback on maximum volume or 12 hours on 2/3 of full volume level on a single charge. With no sharp edges or corners, this little speaker is a genuine pleasure to hold and it’s available in a variety of colors too (the range of grille tints includes blue, red, silver, white, yellow, green, lime green and pink), so pick your favorite and hit the road – just first make sure you take your Oontz Angle with you.
