Ever wanted a small and compact Bluetooth portable speaker for your smartphone or MP3 player but always found that they came up a little short when it came down to how loud or powerful they were? Zimri Speakers has solved that problem.
The smallest speaker rocks not only the Bluetooth option but also an 1/8″ input and can pump the tunes for 6-8 hours on only a 2 hour charge. The sound volume is very amazing for its size, too, and it’s something you have to hear to believe. We also got to see a prototype of a larger Zimri speaker with a microSD slot and a much larger and louder bass response that is meant to act as a standalone MP3 player if wanted, but can also still connect via Bluetooth. Finally, a cube speaker we saw rattling across the table was explained and we learned that it has a super-enlarged bass driver yet still does not have the distortion you’d expect in a device of its nature. This one, too, has a microSD slot and volume controls on the bottom of the device and they are recessed.
We also got to see a charging solution battery pack, in both 3,000 and 6,000 mAH capacities. These chargers have two USB slots, with one being a rapid charger and go hand-in-hand with the speakers that they have.
Take a look at the video for a Bluetooth test on the little speaker that goes over 40 yards across the convention hall without losing signal!
