Altec Lansing Baby Boom XL IMW270 Portable Bluetooth Speaker
Having just moved to Florida after spending the first 50+ years of my life in New Jersey and New York, I realized that I need to have some waterproof items. So, to enhance my pool and beach time, I went out looking for some fairly priced Bluetooth speakers. I was looking for portable and lightweight, waterproof and of course with good sound quality and battery life.
I did what I usually do and headed out to Best Buy and ended up getting the very economical Altec Lansing Baby Boom XL Portable Bluetooth Speaker.
After I was able to figure out the very complicated plastic packaging (punch holes in both sides and press up with two fingers), and get the speaker out, I found paring with my LG Smartphone very easy. The volume controls and Bluetooth button on top serve as dual use purpose. The Bluetooth button is also pause / play or answer a phone call. The volume up/down is also advance or rewind. With a certified IP67 waterproof rating, the Baby Boom XL can handle being brought onto the sand, mud or even tossed into the pool – it will float!
Most importantly for me is the sound quality for an ultra lightweight speaker was excellent, with about 6 hours of battery life on a 2-hour charge. It makes this ideal for me to carry in my small laptop bag. It’s now with me wherever I go traveling up and around Florida.
This product gets my 4.5/5 star recommendation and I suggest you head out to Best Buy and get yourself an Altec Lansing Baby Boom XL Portable Bluetooth Speaker today. Or buy two units and pair them for true stereo sound!
The Altec Lansing Baby Boom XL Portable Bluetooth Speaker is rugged and ready to rock, and must-have when we travel! Loaded with up to 6 hours of battery life per charge, this speaker will last through our longest hikes, pool days, or beach days!
It has a certified IP67 waterproof rating and can handle being brought onto the sand, mud or even tossed into the pool up to 1 meter. I don't have to worry about the kids losing it as we enjoy the water– it will float!
Plus, the Baby Boom XL comes with a built-in carabineer clip to simply clip and bring all our music along on the go! We've even paired two Baby Boom XL’s together to receive double the volume!
Best of all, with a 30ft wireless range, I can safely leave my smartphone in a safe location, free of the dangers of water, while we rock out to our favorite songs at the pool or beach.
We don't leave the house without our Baby Boom! We store the device and charge cord in the car so we always have it for any adventure.
Music has always been a HUGE part of my life. I am one of those crazy ladies you would see belting out a tune in the car while stopped at a light. I sing as if I am standing before a crowd of thousands, even if I am the only one in the car.
With the advancement of technology today, it has come a long way since my Walkman days in the 80’s and I absolutely love it!
I love that this tiny power speaker is small enough to carry in my pocket, but loud enough to allow an entire room of people to enjoy the sound.
I received this speaker just over a week ago and have floated it down the river and clipped it on my backpack during the Kids Adventure Games and while mountain biking. It appears to be as everything proof as advertised. It is super tough, has powerful sound and great battery life all packed into a small, slick package. It is now our go-to sound for anything we are doing outdoors.
I'm always on the move so this speaker is perfect for me. I like very much that you can pair two Baby Boom XLs speakers for an amplified sound via True Wireless Pairing and get double the volume! The Baby Boom XL is filled with so many amazing features to make the most of your listening experience!
A:AnswerI do not think this would work very well in the setting you describe. This speaker is designed for more personal use. For an outdoor event such as you are describing, I believe you should go with something bigger and more powerful... there are many to choose from, and a geek squad member could point you in the right direction
A:AnswerI checked the website and the XL came out after the Baby Boom. The only difference I could find is that the XL can be paired with another XL to give better “stereo” sound. I hope this helps.
A:AnswerHi Bob - Happy to help! You can power on the Baby Boom XL by pressing and holding the power button a top the speaker for 5 seconds. A welcome message will sound noting that it is indeed powering on. If you need to charge the speaker first, please locate a micro USB plug and plug the speaker into a wall outlet to charge for 2-3 hours!
