i-box today unveils the Slix Bluetooth wireless speaker. Small enough to pop in a pocket and robust enough to be iboxbluetoothcarried about and with a standard five-year guarantee to back up that promise.

Slix has all the essential features to deliver on its portable promise. “Firstly, it is designed to be as compact as a speaker with a powerful 2.1 driver configuration can possibly be, yet delivers a remarkably compelling sound for such a diminutive device. Secondly, it’s built to last, with a strong chassis and rugged, rubberised ‘caterpillar track’ surround that will make light work of the day-to-day rough and tumble that a truly portable speaker can – and should – expect” says the company’s press release.

Slix’s 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…handy!

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

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

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.

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