A GREAT BUD­GET PICK

Los Angeles Times - - TECHNOLOGY -

If $300 or even $180 is too much for you, we rec­om­mend the Divoom Voom­box Ongo. It of­fers shorter bat­tery life than our main pick: Its es­ti­mated bat­tery life is eight hours, though in our tests it got 12.5 hours at full vol­ume (play­ing Steely Dan’s “Aja” on re­peat). Although it makes mu­sic sound nat­u­ral, it has no bass to speak of, and it’s nowhere as loud as our main pick. But it re­tails for around $60, which makes it a great deal. The Ongo has a speak­er­phone func­tion and an IPX4 wa­ter-re­sis­tance rat­ing, mean­ing it will sur­vive some splashes and a rain­storm, but not be­ing fully sub­merged. The over­all com­bi­na­tion of sound, porta­bil­ity and price make it an in­cred­i­bly great buy.
