Scosche boomCAN Portable Media Speaker Review

Today I am checking out the Scosche boomCAN portable speaker that will work with any 3.5mm headphone device and has a rechargeable battery. This very portable speaker makes it easy to share your music on the go with a group. Read on for all of the details on the Scosche boomCAN.

Specifications

The Scosche boomCAN has a 35mm driver inside and can be connected to another speaker for stereo sound. The battery inside is rechargeable and lasts for about seven hours. It comes in multiple colors for $24.99 per unit and is available now.

In Use

The first thing I thought when I pulled the Scosche boomCAN out of the box is that the speaker is tiny. I had one boomCAN for testing so I only got mono sound. You can connect a second to the boomCAN to get stereo sound if you want; I only had one for testing though. The speaker is smaller than a jar of baby food and comes with a fabric carry bag for the speaker and the cable.

The internal rechargeable battery promises 7 hours per charge, and I have no doubt that is correct. On the bottom of the Scosche boomCAN is a switch that allows you to change from one dot to two dots or turn the speaker off. The single dot setting is the medium volume setting and the second is max volume. You can still control the volume through your iPhone volume buttons as I did as well.

Charging of the Scosche boomCAN is done with a USB port on your computer or a USB adapter. The single Scosche boomCAN I tested was notable for its small size, but the sound was as tiny as its stature. The volume levels were modest even with the iPhone turned up and the switch on the second setting. The odds of hearing the playback in a group making noise isn't good.

The sound was very much focused on mid and high range sounds. You can clearly hear the vocals and mids on playback of my test tracks. However, bass is virtually nonexistent. If you have a track with low bass like my Ludacris How Low selection, you will not even hear the deep, low bass with the Scosche boomCAN. You can’t expect booming bass out of such a small speaker, but the low bass levels were surprising. If you aren’t a fan of bass heavy tunes, this might be perfect for you.

Verdict

Pros

  • Tiny speaker
  • Long battery life

Cons

  • Poor bass
 

Conclusion

If you can get over the virtual lack of bass and want the most portable speaker you can find, the Scosche boomCAN might be perfect for you.
