The Boom Boom is rectangular and has a glossy black finish, but is also available in white. As can be seen, it is very thin, coming in at 12mm tall, but has somewhat of a large footprint, coming in at 160 x 90 mm. Near the front of the lid, Choiix has its name stamped. The back has no markings, but has a channel for the headphone cable to sit in. This channel wraps all the way around the outside of the Boom Boom, providing a fairly long cable. Using a headphone cable makes it possible to plug the device into almost any audio player, but since you need USB power, the number of devices is somewhat limited once you get away from a USB port. Also, in the upper right corner is the mini USB port which is used for power.
The lid lifts up and on the underside is the product's badge, showing a barcode and all the certifications. This lid can bend almost all the way around to provide a stand for the speaker. The speaker itself is covered in a mesh grill and surrounded by a chrome ring. Underneath the mesh part are the 4 drivers which work together to provide the level of sound quality that the Boom Boom is able to provide. Both the cables are about the same length, and are long enough to allow for many situations.
