JVC, a Japan based consumer electronics brand, adds another product to its category, the ultimate party starter, BT ‘Boombox XS-XN15’. Designed with the fast-evolving entertainment needs of the young Indian consumer in mind – entertainment, great sound quality, ease of use and contemporary design packs a Boom!
Embodying a brilliant engineering and modern design, the speaker with 2x2W +5W RMS output pairs up with any Bluetooth enabled device, bringing distortion free music and uninterrupted playback of 5 to 8 hours on 1000mAh Battery. The technology produces instant bass, maximizes volume performance and creates the most impressive listening experience with the touch of a button.
The XS-XN15 is powered by a 1000mAh Li-Ion rechargeable battery, which, according to the company lets you enjoy music for 8-10 hours on medium volume. You can fully recharge the speakers using a micro-USB cable in 2.5 hours. At high volume, the battery will drain after 5 hours.
The Bluetooth speaker has a peak music power output of 5000W PMPO with the stereo effect. There are 2, 3W speakers in the front and we found the sound quality very good, with clarity in the bass and tuned treble. There’s a built-in bass port beneath the speaker, delivering premium quality of sound. Another good point is that even at the full volume of both the speaker and the connecting device, the sound is crisp.
The connectivity features, besides Bluetooth, include an AUX port to wire your phone with the speaker, TF card support output port, to access songs from your Memory cards and a line-out function to couple the portable speaker with another speaker for enhanced output. The Bluetooth has a decent direct line connectivity of 10-12 metres. There’s also the FM to listen to your favorite radio channels. You can also call using the speaker and there are buttons to receive calls too.
While the design of the JVC speaker is attractive, and the ABS Plastic gives the speaker sturdiness, the built quality is something JVC can rework on again. The retractable stand on the back doesn’t fit back inside the designated slot and feels a little out of the place (Though the problem could be with this particular review unit only). Also, the blue-colored V-Shaped plastic element feels like it will pop out anytime.
