INTRODUCTION:

Wireless portable speakers are very popular in local market these days, Bluetooth is the most common medium. However, we still seldom see induction speakers or near field audio (NFA) speakers, some do not even know what it is.

Airborne Technologies, a newcomer in the mobile accessory industry, recently released the Boom Box, an induction speaker with a housing made of 100% wood and a built-in re-chargeable Lithium-Ion battery.


UNBOXING:

Retail package

The retail package consists of the unit, user manual and a standard to mini USB cable for charging. There is no charger included, which means you need to plug it in your computer's USB port to juice it up.


DESIGN:

Front and back

The front has the Boom Box and the company logo etched in the wood, there is also an LED notification, which emits blue light when in use and purple one when fully charged. The has a leather-like cloth with napped finish.

Side

There is a 2-watt speaker on each of the longer sides of the rectangular-shape Boom Box. One of the shorter side has nothing on it while the other one has both the toggle switch and mini USB port for charging as well as auxiliary input.

The wooden housing separates the Boom Box to the usual portable speakers made of plastic. However, the toggle switch looks cheap and questionable in terms of build quality. Hopefully, they will modify it to a push button for a better look and ruggedness. In addition, the mini USB is not so common these days and in my opinion, micro USB would be much better.


PERFORMANCE and VERDICT:

So how do induction speaker works? One requirement is that your phone/gadget to use must have an external speaker. You need to place the loudspeaker of your device on top of the Boom Box near the LED light where the induction area is located. The sounds coming out of your device is then picked up or received by the inductors (there are two small transformers inside the Boom Box located on the left and right of the LED light) which then amplifies the sounds before sending out to the Boom Box's two speakers.

One advantage of the Boom Box over other speakers is the ease of set-up, there is no cable and pairing needed, something that the manufacturer market as "No Plug, Just Play". Just turn on the Boom Box and place your device on top of it and you are good to go. In terms of audio output, the sound produced is very good or above average, while the loudness depends on how loud your device is. The battery life ranges from 6 to 8 hours while charging takes 3 to 4 hours.

However, since it is an analog technology it is susceptible to interference and there are times that the output is distorted or not clear. Larger devices like tablet or iPad is also compatible, but you need to balance them well on top of the Boom Box.
