G-Project G-Boom: Big sound for a $100 portable Bluetooth speakerThe G-Boom is a solidly built wireless Bluetooth speaker with a built-in rechargeable battery (and handle) that delivers strong bass for an affordable price.
I'm David Carnoy and I'm here with the G-Project G-Boom. This is a wireless Bluetooth speaker and its claim to fame is that it puts out a lot of sound and a lot of bass for a very reasonable price. It costs $99.99, it obviously has a kind of a funky sign not everybody is gonna like that design, but there's a handle on top, looks a little bit like a lunch box but you can carry around with you from room to room or outside. It has four drivers, there's a woofer, tweeter. There are two sets of those on the front and there are two bass ports on the back. So, it does sound loud, it usually don't get a speaker this big that cost $100, at least a wireless Bluetooth speaker that does, and a lot of these speakers that are in this price range are much smaller speakers. This does have a rechargeable battery, gives about six hours of battery life. However, it doesn't charge via USB. It does charge via a standard AC adapter. So, you don't wanna lose that AC adapter because it's required to charge this device. One of the nice features is that it does have some playback control buttons on top of the unit while the people like having some playback control buttons even though they're controlling their music mostly through their device usually a smart phone or a tablet and it has a USB port on the back. It's a charging USB port so you can charge your smartphone while you're using the speaker and playing music through your device. As far as features goes, that's really it. There's no built-in speaker phone but this is really about big sound, big bass, and as I said in my review, you will probably not find another speaker that delivers more bass for $100. I'm David Carnoy and that's the G-Projec G-Boom. Thanks for watching.
