Design and Features
Like all bluetooth-enabled speakers, the Ivation Acoustix IPX7 will stream audio from almost any tablet, smartphone, or bluetooth-enabled audio player or PC. The speaker is easy to use with an intuitive design and a well written user’s manual that will enable you to get up and running within a few minutes after you unpack your speakers.
Battery Charges Quick and Lasts Long
Ivation Acoustix comes with long lasting battery which can be fully charged within three hours. Charging is simple and straight forward. Simply plug in the USB cable into the micro USB port and you can charge the speaker with your PC or with the 120V AC adapter.
The USB cable is the flat type that offers better durability and does not easily get tangled. Ivation makes it very easy for you to monitor the battery status through the LCD monitor. When the battery is full it displays 4 bars and as the charge drops, the LCD provides an accurate battery status. This is a very unique feature that is not found on most high-end bluetooth speakers that cost twice the price of this one.
Connectivity with the speaker is quick and easy. By holding down the bluetooth button, you can use it to connect to two bluebooth-enabled devices within a few seconds. In addition to the bluetooth connectivity, you may also connect your iPod or any other audio source to the speaker through the 3.5 mm auxiliary audio jack. So you may use this speaker to amplifying the sound while you watch a movie.
Ivation obtained an Ingress Protection (IP) rating of X7 for this speaker. This means it is rated to remain stable while immersed for up to 1 meter in water for about 30 minutes. Although, you may not want to do a destructive test on this speaker to confirm this, however, you will be able to use it in your bathroom or on the beach without any fear.
FM Radio and Speakerphone
The FM radio has an auto tuning facility and can save up to 10 preset stations for you. You can also use this speaker to play music from a Pandora app on your iPhone. When you pair up your smartphone or tablet with this device, you can use to answer phone calls because it has a built in microphone and the volume of the music you are playing will be automatically reduced when a call comes in.
Through the LCD display, you can see the caller ID of the incoming call if you enable this feature. In addition, you can control the volume of the music playing on the speaker from your smartphone. The volume on your smartphone will also be changed when you adjust the volume on the speakers.
The hallmark of any high quality portable speaker performance is to produce high quality sound at every volume level and Ivasion Acoustix achieves this with precision. The bass is solid and the treble is distinct. You can raise the volume to the highest level without any fear of distortion.
With the combination of two 4-watt speakers, you can enjoy sound that is loud enough for a large sized room or a small outdoor get together. The extended battery life will enable you to use this small palm-sized speaker to entertain your guests in your living room for at least 9 hours at maximum volume.
