I love this thing. It’s not the biggest, or the loudest, or the coolest to look at, but this water-resistant little guy is one of my favorite pieces of audio gear. The sound is clear and full, and the battery life is great. I’ve had it since the summer when I bought it for myself as a birthday present, and since then it’s been to the beach, on road trips, in the darkroom, in the backyard. It’s small & light enough to toss in a backpack, and being IPX5 certified water resistant means I don’t worry about getting it wet at the beach or when it’s in the kitchen while I’m washing dishes or whatever.
The Oontz Angle boasts 10 watts of peak power and gets about 5-7 hours of playtime on a charge. It charges with a USB cable like a phone, and in fact is a handsfree phone receiver (though I haven’t used it that way). Did I mention it sounds good? Like really good? I picked it over other, louder and bigger ones because the sound is great, and size is perfect – it fits in a cupholder and frankly to me is the perfect size for a portable speaker. It may not be loud enough to power a busy pool party but for most purposes it’s great. Well worth the less than $30 I spent on it. If you’re in the market for a Bluetooth speaker, check it out the Oontz Angle.
