Mom Central received samples of OontZ speakers in order to facilitate this review. The views expressed here are entirely our own.
We have become obsessed with the mobile speaker, especially our teens and college kids who listen to their music everywhere. For my son, a rising college sophomore, his fraternity plays music at their group events as a means to capture people’s attention. Moreover, as anyone visiting or attending a college knows all too well, frat boys like to play their music as loudly as possible – as if loud music would transform their social life from dull to magnetic!
A cool new development in Cambridge SoundWorks technology—whose products one would typically view as major investments, priced at least at $1000 minimum—the OontZ and OontZ Angle lightweight and portable speakers deliver the company’s high-end acoustics in a convenient size and at an affordable price. Shaped to fit comfortably in your hand and to slide easily into a backpack or purse, both speakers prove handy for travel.
Tuck these speakers into your kids’ suitcases as they head back to school next month. Then, when they come home and want to turn up the volume, you can send them outside to enjoy the quality sound at their leisure. This proves especially useful when their rap artists or indie bands don’t exactly resonate with you.
