The latest British entrant to accessory market is i-box with their bluetooth speaker with a twist. While we have seen other bluetooth speakers with twist controls, i-box has literally twisted the whole speaker into a stand out design.
The Twist is the first in what is said to become a range of accessories for smartphones and tablets from the UK brand. Twist bluetooth speaker is hoping to tap into the growing market for small and portable speakers that are friendly with all the latest smart gadgets. Design wise the Twist looks like someone has taken the square box and literally twisted it, hence the name.
According to the press release the key to the Twist charm is its simplicity. The handy size, bluetooth functionality, top-mounted control panel, and quick pairing, although personally i’m not sure about the functionality of the overall design compared to some of the other design led bluetooth speakers in the market, including the Hidden Radio. On the plus side, the Twist features noise-cancelling microphone for improved hands-free calls.
Behind the Twist design you will find a pair of 38mm full range drivers and a passive radiator, promising performance “brimming with punch, poise, and panache”. Portability is supported by a rechargeable battery providing up to 5 hours of play time and charges using USB.
