Divoom Voombox Travel Bluetooth Speaker | Get Your Travel Party Vibes On
Looking for a travel speaker for your trips?
While I was travelling on my round the world trip, my friend Paul met up with me in Bali. One night due to a cultural holiday we were stuck inside our hotel and we couldn’t leave the property because of a Balinese holiday called Nyepi. Nyepi is Balinese Hindu New Year and it’s a day of reflection and cleansing. No one including travellers to Bali can leave their home or accommodations. We reflected by hanging out at our hotel infinity pool, having some drinks, and listening to music on Paul’s awesome travel speaker.
Thanks to my buddy Paul, he saved us from listening to music off of our phones. He is a smart traveller and brought a Bluetooth travel speaker along on his trip. We respected the rules of the cultural holiday and only played music in our hotel room that night. It made for a sweet hotel room dance party. He also brought the travel speaker along with us when we went to the beach and wanted to get our Bob Marley on underneath some palm trees. After using Paul’s speaker I went and bought a Divoom iFIT in Manila so I could have it for when I was heading out to the islands. It came in handy several nights when friends and I were hanging out drinking in our guesthouse common area and on the beach in Boracay. It was small cheap but it is wired.
I’m not the most educated in sound quality so I was just interested in having a travel speaker that is durable for my clumsy self and I can take with me on my world travels plus decent sound. There are loads of Bluetooth travel speakers out there and some are crazy amazing quality but also on the pricey side. I have a great Tivoli home system which I love and an iPal which is too big to bring around with when space is limited.
Divoom reached out and gave me one of their Voombox Travel Bluetooth speakers to try out.
Boom! Voombox Travel
Here are some details about the speaker:
- Wirelessly stream audio to the speaker from any Bluetooth-equipped device
- A passive radiator generates impressive bass for its size
- Rugged design, splash resistant, and built for the outdoors (camping, beach vibes, travelling!)
- Built-in Li-ion battery provides up to 6-hours of playback time (party for hours)
- Powerful Built-in microphone for hands-free calls
Bluetooth is amazing because I hate corded anything.
For its size and price ($50), this Divoom speaker is a pretty darn good bargain. I am not some audiophile, I just like to have music to rock out to when I’m in my hotel room or loafing by the pool.
The shape is not bad. Not my favourite but it fits into my day pack side pocket which is handy when going on an adventure.
Water-resistant and sturdy. I’m clumsy as hell and have already dropped it and spilled coffee on it. Amen for water-resistant things.
Not so good:
When you crank the sound, the little guy moves around when there’s a lot of bass in a song. I would definitely not crank it all the way up.
It doesn’t go any louder than the iPhone goes.
I like it. I would pay $50 for this. I’m excited to take this puppy on my next trip. I am travelling and actually not going solo. So this speaker will come in handy for some hotel dance parties!!
Here’s a video I made testing out the Divoom Voombox Travel speaker. Please lower the volume and adjust accordingly. It may get a bit loud!
