i-box, young British tech brand, today unveils the Slix Bluetooth wireless speaker. Small enough to pop in a pocket and robust ibox_bluetooth_speakerenough to be carried about (with a standard five-year guarantee to back up that promise), the seriously small and well-specified Slix looks perfect travel companion or an urban audio accessory.

Slix has a 2.1 driver configuration and it’s built to last, with a strong chassis and rugged, rubberised ‘caterpillar track’ surround.

Slix also has a high degree of water-resistance, with an ‘IPX’ rating of IPX5. This means it’s both splash-proof and weather-proof; it will be unaffected by rain, and you can safely take it into the bathroom and not worry about it receiving even prolonged splashes of water.

Slix measures just 155x58x28mm (WxHxD) and has a custom-tuned amplifier powering a pair of 1.5-inch full-range drivers, augmented by a passive bass radiator.

The inclusion of a ‘True Stereo Pairing’ mode, enables users to combine two Slix speakers via Bluetooth for genuine stereo sound and with this in mind, Slix can be bought as a special ‘double pack’ called Slix2.

It will pair with any Bluetooth-equipped device such as smartphones, tablets etc. Slix’s Bluetooth specification includes A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile) and EDR (Enhanced Data Rate) for high- performance wireless transmission.

A hands-free speakerphone facility adds further flexibility when Slix is paired with a smartphone, while the speaker’s built-in Lithium rechargeable battery supplies up to 10 hours playback from each charge. The package includes a micro USB charging cable, plus a 3.5mm audio cable to connect non-Bluetooth enabled music devices.

Slix is available at an SRP of £59.99. The stereo double-pack, Slix2, costs £99.99.
