As we have discussed in previous articles, the long fought battle between form and function is waging on in a world beginning to be dominated by sleek and stylish portables.

And so, as the months pass us by the continued production of these 'nano' speakers, well, continues; thick and fast to be accurate.

 

Today the particular slim line speaker we are discussing is the Choiix Boom Boom Travel Speaker. Choiix is a subsidiary of Cooler Master to provide some perspective, as this seems to be an all new company.

The CHOIIX travel speaker uses a number of very small drivers, four to be exact, to provide a stereo image through the use of a single enclosure.

 

For our testing, the Boom Boom was connected to a high quality MP3 player with the supplied stereo mini jack cable. A wide range of music was used to gather an idea of what this small system is capable of.

- High End

 

Probably the strongest point of this system, the high range frequencies were present (well and truly) in the mix.

 

- Mid Range

 

Not an area that the CHOIIX was prepared (nor equipped) to deal with.

 

- Low End

 

Unfortunately we do not have any test data for this area either. It seems low frequencies simply are not there to appraise.

Overall, the style and form of this unit is its primary function. Beyond that we are afraid not much can be found. We feel that it is just as important to factor in a reasonable level of performance (when designing a product) as it is to make it attractive. After all, what is one without the other?

With that said, the Choiix Boom Boom speaker will certainly please certain users, to be sure. Just make sure that you have a vast understanding of the myriad of these systems out there at the moment and try and get a listen of some before you make your purchasing decision.

 

We would recommend hearing at least six to eight of these systems before spending a red cent. And that would only be covering ten percent of what's out there.
