I wanted a new Bluetooth speaker as my JBL Flip II was damaged, and not sounding right. So browsing through Amazon I found the Jazz Blaster Bluetooth speaker from ZOOOK.
The box includes, the Jazz Blaster speaker, an auxilary cable, a USB cable for charging, but sadly no USB power plug was included, and you would need to use an existing Android Phone charger. Also included is a Warranty card and Instruction manual.
- Bluetooth 4.2
- IPX5 Rating (Weather Proof)
- 30 W Output
- Noice cancellation Microphone
- Big battery with a playback time of 8-10 hours
The overall design of the speaker is impressive, with its matte black finish. The speaker has a pyramid shaped grill, which looks very cool when it catches the light. The small hole on the top left is the microphone, to make calls.
On the back is a DC 5V USB port, and an auxiliary jack, which are behind this rubber flap. The rubber flap is to be kept closed to prevent water from getting in. This speaker is weather resistant, but we have to ensure the flaps are kept closed, and is also not easy to open . The right side is devoid of any buttons, and the left has all the controls, such as volume up, down, play, pause etc, the M button is to change the mode between Bluetooth and auxiliary.
The strap on top is of a very good quality, and helps carry the speaker around.
The speaker looks premium, and the quality of the sound is very good. I am replacing my JBL Flip II which had served me well for many years. Looking at them together, this one just dwarfs the JBL.
The speaker has clear sound, even at high volumes. A microphone is included to take calls off the speaker. With Bluetooth 4.2 the connectivity is much better, and allows to be placed around 30 feet away from the audio source.
There is only an indicator light, which displays if its connected or not, but nothing to show the battery level.
Overall a great speaker, and I would recommend it.
