Xoopar Splash

Highlights

Audio output: 5 W

Range: 10 m

Bluetooth version: 4.2

Play time: 4 hours

Connectivity: Bluetooth, SD card, AUX cable

Warranty: 1-year

Others: suction cup (removable), microphone, carabiner (removable)

This Xoopar splash can become your morning companion as you get ready for the day.

How? Well, ask yourself this.

Do you often take your phone or speaker into the bathroom for a musical shower? (I’ve lost a phone like that as it slipped from the towel rack in to the water).

Or do you listen to songs in the kitchen or bedroom as you pack your tiffin or groom in front of the mirror? (Seriously, masalas and speakers don’t mix).

Having a speaker or Smartphone around water, food ingredients or a dressing table can suddenly turn into messy accidents (especially if you usually get ready in a hurry).

So, that you never have to worry about your daily dose of music as you’re doing stuff, consider buying this Xoopar splash.

Other than just placing it on some surface (and risking a water spill or kitchen accident) why not stick it to some surface?

To help you do this, the speaker comes with 2 modes of attachment— a removable suction cup and a removable carabiner.

With the suction cup ‘on’ you can stick the speaker right on the bathroom wall, glass cabinet or mirror as you move from room to room.

The carabiner lets you hook the speaker on to your handbag or backpack as you step out of the house for office or college.

You can even stick the speaker on your car window while driving.

Along with its thoughtful design for easy handling, the speaker delivers well on the sound output, Bluetooth connectivity, playtime of 4 hours and a microphone for attending calls.

This is one speaker that will blend in to your routine instead of making you adjust to it. In 3 words, this Xoopar splash is sticky, functional, and a budget-friendly speaker!

This tiny little drum of a speaker is a pocket-friendly alternative to the costlier ones, especially if you plan to pair it with a second speaker for better sound.

Made by Infinity (a JBL brand) you get nothing less than the best at an economical price!

The speaker body is built to sustain sudden falls and drops; and is also dust resistant.

Its size makes it easy to carry around, without taking much space.

The speaker is also rated IPX 7 which indicates that it is water proof.

The speaker can avoid damage from water up to a depth of 3 feet. (Try it for yourself: Put the speaker in a bucket of water and hear it play songs without distortion).

As a PC or TV speaker, a set of two will be more suitable as it creates 360 degrees surround sound effect.

However, in this price segment, not many speakers support the dual connect speaker. But with this Infinity Fuze 100 you can connect 2 speakers with the press of a button.

And if you press the volume buttons together, you can switch between the dual equalizer modes for impactful music!

For a budget speaker, this one’s quite loud and connects wirelessly over a range of about 10 metres.

At medium volume (or indoor use) the speaker plays for 6 to 7 hours, while at full volume (outdoor use) it works for about 4 hours.

The package also comes with a string to help you sling it around or tie it on your backpack.

Overall, this one’s a good alternative if you want branded speakers at an affordable price.
