Portronics, as its name sug­gests, spe­cialises in por­ta­ble de­vices. One of its new prod­ucts is the Sound­box, a peb­ble shaped de­vice.the de­sign is noth­ing to write home about. On its glossy plas­tic body, it has con­trols on the top, a dis­play in the front and con­nec­tiv­ity ports at the bot­tom. It has a 4W speaker at the back. It has an in­built FM ra­dio and a mu­sic player. The main menu com­prises cal­en­dar, mu­sic, line in for aux­il­iary in­put, FM ra­dio and sys­tem set­tings. To play mu­sic, Portronics has added mul­ti­ple in­ter­faces. The USB port at the bot­tom can be used to plug in

and play songs. It also has a mem­ory card slot and a 3.5 mm port for con­nect­ing a cell phone or a lap­top us­ing an aux­il­iary cable. Other than this, there is the FM ra­dio, over which you can ac­cess var­i­ous mu­sic chan­nels. In both the modes, the sound was loud and clear. Of course, the au­dio can­not be com­pared with what big­gies like Bose pro­vide, but it is bet­ter than the lo­cal speak­ers avail­able in the mar­ket. The Sound­box comes equipped with a 1050 mah recharge­able bat­tery that con­tin­u­ously keeps your ears en­gaged for close to seven hours.
