A few months ago, iWalk contacted me asking if I'd like to review a bunch of products, to which I of course said yes. A few weeks went past, countless boxes and samples arriving in my office, and then something heavy arrived.
I opened it up, and a box of iWalk goodies was inside, something that I completely forgot about. There were three mobile rechargeable batteries, and the crown jewel I had been waiting for: iWalk's Sound Angle wireless Bluetooth speaker.
First up, I'm going to overload you with some specs on this wireless speaker, before we take a look around the device itself. As you can see, it doesn't feature the best of specs, but it really does the job. We have a 2600mAh lithium-ion battery, a built-in microphone for on-the-go calls, and 3.5mm for auxiliary.
We have 5V / 1A for power and 2 x 3.5W speakers - which push audio out quite well I must say - but more on that soon. Let's take a look around the iWalk Sound Angle, shall we?
First up, the box that it comes on is quite in-your-face - it was one of the best parts of the device itself. It is presented extremely, extremely well, and as a fan of first impressions - iWalk were doing the moonwalk all over the place.
Once it's out of its box, you'll find it in another case - which has a flap down the bottom, which is magnetic. It's a nice touch, that's for sure.
And we have it open! That magnetic part I mentioned just before, you can see the two magnets at the top of the picture, above. The Sound Angle itself is snug in the box, with some great protection from shipping.
Out of the box, we find the Sound Angle speaker itself, a nice carry bag for it, an instruction manual, a microUSB to USB cable for charging, and a 3.5mm to 3.5mm audio jack.
Now we have the Sound Angle. iWalk provided us with the Red version, which looks quite good in person. Down the bottom, we have a dock for your smartphone or iPod, which is a nice touch, especially if your device isn't Bluetooth-capable, you can just plug it in through the provided 3.5mm port (and cable).
To the right of the device, we have some buttons to play with. From top to bottom, we have volume up, volume down, previous track, play/pause and next track.
To the left of the device, we have the Bluetooth button, which is used to enable or disable Bluetooth. Under that, we have a cool little battery meter, which has a few bars that slowly disappear as the battery life is sucked out of it playing your tunes.
On the rear of the device, we have an open port so that the internal subwoofer can take in some air.
Below that, we have the on/off switch, 3.5mm jack, and microUSB port for charging.
This is what the Nexus 5 looks like docked on the iWalk Sound Angle, it doesn't protrude out from the speaker that much. If you were to put an iPad (or similar sized tablet) on it, it would definitely take up a lot of room, but you can still access all of the buttons required.
As for pricing, iWalk has slapped a $129.99 price on the Sound Angle, which I think is a fair price given its build quality and features.
