techly speaking//olixar boombrick bluetooth speaker

We were in the market for a new speaker that was a little bit beefier and, as luck would have it, Mobile Fun {which is based in the UK so I feel all fancy now} reached out to me to review the Olixar Boombrick Bluetooth Speaker and it ticks all the boxes. I love it but Husband is probably the most obsessed with it and, to be honest, I think the hobbit has now claimed it as his own {typical}

The Olixar has high fidelity audio that easily fills the room without being tinny. It's cute, blends in to existing decor easily and has some weight to it but is still easy to move around. The speaker has Bluetooth & line-in connectivity so you can connect any audio device and has automatic Bluetooth pairing so no passwords are needed {thank bloody goodness. Is anyone else terribly hopeless with passwords?}.

Another handy feature {which I'll probably never quite get around to using} is that there's a built-in microphone for hands-free calls and conference calling. There's a rechargeable battery which I love because I detest buying batteries. Play time is 8 hours with a 3 hour charge time.

The package comes with the speaker {duh}, a 3.5mm to 3.5mm AUX cable, USB charging cable and user manual. The speaker also comes with a two year warranty which is wonderfully nifty. 

I'm yet to name him {feel free to send suggestions} but he's wonderful for playing music outside {B. loves that, our neighbours probably want to stab us -- kid is obsessed with Wannabe} and for listening to music in the shower. A wonderful addition to our home. And, seriously, what should we name him?

*I received the speaker from MobileFun but was not paid for my review. As always, all opinions are my own.
