“Aah yeah, turn this up bruv! This is a sick tune! Come on, pump it up, this my jam…” No, I’ve never actually uttered those words, but I have felt the frustration of poor audio quality emanating from an iPhone when a song comes on that deserves to be played louder. Enter, KINIVO’s latest mini speaker, the ZX100.
The speaker is around the same size as a standard paperweight and much lighter, coming in a variety of colours that include grey-blue, black-red, green-white and green-grey. Billing itself as emanating a ‘full-bodied, 360-degree sound’, the top of the speaker actually pops up to reveal a bouncy middle that really trembles when the bass kicks in.
Having a rechargeable battery is a godsend to any traveller that likes to bring beats to wherever they lay their backpack, holed up at a hotel or stuck in a lay-by, waiting for a jump start; office workers can also plug it into their laptops to give their coworkers an added bit of volume as they run through their classic playlists.
With a decent sound output and a pocket-sized design, this is a handy gadget for pretty much any music lover. Or, to use the vernacular, “It is sick bruv, innit…”
