Introduction

I get a handful of portable speakers sent to me every month, and half of them come from companies that I've never heard of before; and most of the time, that's a good thing. It's good, because I am introduced to companies that I might have never worked with otherwise. I am also introduced to products that I had no idea existed, and that I actually like, and love to review.

Mpow is one of those companies. I had not heard of Mpow until they reached out to me to review their Mbox Portable Bluetooth 4.0 Wireless Speaker. Mpow sells a range of audio products; everything from Bluetooth hands-free devices, to hands-free kits for your car, and of course, mobile speakers.

Specifications, Pricing, and Availability

Mpow has put together an extremely stylish mobile speaker with mid-range specs. The Mbox features a 1500mAh internal lithium-ion battery that powers the Mbox for around ten hours, of which I was able to experience nine or so hours in my testing. The Mbox also uses Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity.

Inside of the product packaging, we find the Mbox speaker, a USB charging cable, 3.5mm audio cable, and a user manual. In terms of Warranty, Mpow covers you for 18 months, with a 45-day money-back guarantee.

The Mpow currently sells on Amazon for $49.99, which is a great value for this type of speaker.

A Closer Look

Now we're going to take a closer look at the Mpow Mbox speaker, beginning with the front of the product.

Straight away we can see that we have a great design. A great design is something a little out-of-the-box when it comes to mobile speakers, and I'm definitely not complaining. I love the look of the Mbox.

On top, we have previous and next track buttons, as well as the play button.

On the back, we have the micro USB slot for charging, a 3.5mm jack for audio from your device, and the on/off button.

Here is a closer look at the beautiful design of the Mbox.

Design

At first glance, the Mbox looks like something Apple would design, which isn't a bad thing. The beautiful aluminum frame lends a big hand here, with the perforated white grid style on the front being very eye-catching.

The Mbox doesn't just look good; it also feels great in the hand. Unfortunately, there's only one color option, and with this design, it would've been great to see various color options. The perforated front would look great in every color: blue, red, green; and even interchangeable covers for the front would've been a nice change in pace.
