Looking for a new pair of jogging earbuds? Maybe a new speaker set for your vehicle? Well instead of possibly confusing yourself with all the choices on the market look no further. BoomCloud 360 has developed a product that turns any device with a 3.5mm jack into an entirely superior version of its past self, convincing anyone that they are listening to a completely different product altogether. We are proud to introduce you to the BoomStick.
PACKAGING & DESIGN SPECIFICATIONS
BoomCloud 360’s BoomStick comes in gorgeous box with a vibrant, almost explosive color scheme. The cover of the box proudly presents the BoomStick in its actual size while the back shows us the main features as well as the contents located within. The back also informs us of the device’s compatibility stating, “It connects to media players and headphones or earphones with a standard 3.5mm jack,” but the fun thing is, with our tests we found out it connects to much more.
Within the box you’ll find the BoomStick, a nylon zipper case, a 6 inch micro USB cable to keep the device charged, a quick start guide, and a 1 year warranty.
The left side has a small power switch and the right side has a micro USB slot for charging. The face has the large BOOM button as well as four LED’s displaying power, low battery, audio boost, and their “Sound Unbound” feature.
BoomCloud 360’s BoomStick is a very simple device to use. All you have to do is instead of plugging your headphones directly into your media player, you instead plug them into the BoomStick and then the stick plugs into the player. It basically acts as a bridge between the two devices that boosts the audio when desired.
As stated on the box the device holds up to roughly 14 hours on a single charge and we found that to be quite accurate. Fortunately enough, if your device does end up draining its battery you don’t have to unplug it if you don’t want to. The media will continue to stream through the device as if the stick wasn’t plugged in at all.
To turn on the device simply flip the toggle on the side of the device and wait roughly two second for the audio to pass through. Once on, the device isn’t boosting the audio initially, just passing it through. To actually start boosting your audio you have to push the BOOM button and with no delay the large LED lights up around the button and the device kicks in with a large difference. To go one step further just push and hold the BOOM button for two seconds and the “Sound Unbound” LED will light up and your audio experience will be pushed to its limit. At this point you can just push the BOOM button to toggle the boost on or off or hold it for two seconds to scale back the audio boost to its normal mode.
So, how does this little device actually perform? Well in all honestly, it preforms astonishingly. This little device takes any audio playing device you can plug into it and transforms it into an almost entirely new device completely outperforming it’s past self. The audio is louder, clearer, deeper, and contains a lot more bass while still somehow not overpowering the experience at all. How this device can take any pair of cheap ear buds and transform them into an absolute powerhouse is definitely a fantastic development within the music industry and the audio industry as a whole.
The two boost modes on this device are pretty much the same thing with the second mode, or “Sound Unbound” mode, simply further boosting the whole experience another 50%-100% or so. In all honesty we enjoyed the further bass boost in the “Sound Unbound” mode so much that we pretty much just ignored the regular boost in favour of this mode altogether. We did occasionally find a song or two where this boost did add some distortion to the audio but all we had to do was drop it down to the regular boost mode and it sounded crystal clear once again. To clarify, the “Sound Unbound” mode doesn’t just increase the bass from the original boost mode but the whole experience fully. Treble, clarity, bass, it’s all there.
As stated previously, we found out this device not only connects to headphones or earphones but to any audio producing device with a 3.5mm jack. This includes devices such as our desktop speakers and our vehicle’s cd deck through its AUX port. What we ran into was the same amazing audio boosting experience on a much grander scale. It made our vehicle with stock speakers convince us we had subs installed in the back with an amp hiding under our driver seat. The device’s compatibility with any 3.5mm jack makes it a must-have multi-tool for any true audiophile.
REPORT ANALYSIS & FINAL THOUGHTS
To put it simply, this device is astonishing, almost magical. We absolutely love it. With pre-orders asking for $100, BoomCloud 360’s BoomStick is an absolute must for anyone currently on the market for a new headset, car deck, audio system, etc. Some might think the price tag is a little steep but with the flexibility of this product to plug into so many devices it really becomes an amazing tool. The BoomStick will take any device and completely transform it into a powerful audio replicating device absolutely convincing others of its superiority. This small device is an absolute must buy and for this reason we are awarding it our Gold Seal!
