Speaker sound a go-go

Baltimore Sun Sunday - - TRAVEL -

Scosche boom­can

About the size of a small Vicks Va­porub bot­tle or a 35 mm film can­is­ter (if any­body re­mem­bers those), this tiny speaker de­liv­ers huge vol­ume from your MP3 player or eas­ily out­per­forms your lap­top speaker. It also works with ipods, iphones, ipads, Android de­vices, Black­ber­rys, gam­ing de­vices and more.

You won’t be­lieve the amount of sound for the size. And it’s small enough that you won’t cringe at the thought of tak­ing it along even when trav­el­ing light.

I took it on a week­long trip to Europe, when I had only a carry-on. Hav­ing a speaker lets you cre­ate great shared mo­ments on a trip with your own sound­track, and there’s some­thing about hav­ing your fa­vorite songs along in new places that en­hances the travel ex­pe­ri­ence. You also don’t have to keep track of var­i­ous cords; the USB charg­ing cord and plug-in jack are at­tached to the same wire. Every­thing fits eas­ily into a trav­el­ing pouch, which is in­cluded. The body is light­weight alu­minum, so it’s light yet strong. Speak­ers also can be daisy-chained. The in­ter­nal bat­tery can run for seven hours per charge.

Don’t ex­pect huge bass; I just don’t think it’s pos­si­ble given the size, but you won’t be dis­ap­pointed other­wise.

List is $24.99.

or nu­mer­ous other re­tail­ers online or in stores. Shop around; you may find it cheaper.
