Pretty much everyone that owns a laptop is willing to admit that either the sound quality out of it isn't the greatest, it's not very loud, or both. The Choiix Boom Boom looks to solve these problems by giving it's users a stand-alone unit with sound quality in mind as well as being portable. While the concept of mobile speakers has been around for a long time, they were usually quiet or poor quality due to only being powered by batteries or having no power at all. The Boom Boom, on the other hand, is powered by USB, so you know you won't have a draining power source to deal with. Will the Boom Boom be able to surpass the quality of most laptops? Let's find out.
The packaging that the Boom Boom comes in is cardboard and shows an image of the speaker on the front and sides. On the back is a list of specifications and features and a few other pictures. The box is very easy to open, which is a nice change from blister packs.
The Boom Boom is in another cardboard box which also holds a mini USB to USB cable which is used to power the speaker. Thankfully, no drivers are needed as the device is Plug n' Play. The speaker itself has a covering of plastic to keep from smudges messing up the finish.
