One of my favorite tech categories right now is that of the Bluetooth portable speaker. I find them to be quite useful and convenient especially since many of them come in such small packages, yet that doesn’t diminish the sound quality. I’ve had the pleasure of testing out several of them already and while many of them feature the same features, the one factor that ends up separating them is still price. With that said, the newest entry in the ever growing Bluetooth speaker category is that of the new Divoom Onbeat-200.
The Divoom Onbeat-200 is a 3-inch rechargeable Bluetooth speaker that is available in 4 different colors – black, red, blue, and silver. Audio is pushed through dual 50mm drivers with a passive bass radiator. It has a built in litium-ion battery good for 8-hours of continuous play. The Onbeat-200 can also function as a speakerphone and has built in play controls. If you go through the checklist of things you look for in a Bluetooth speaker, this one pretty much checks them all off.
Obviously, audio quality will be a huge factor so whether or not the $79.99 price tag will be worth it for the Onbeat-200 remains to be seen. hopefully we’ll get a chance to look at one and let you know.
