Sound You Can’t Outrun

Sound You Can’t Outrun


A few months back we told you about a portable speaker from Kinivo that plugged directly into the headphone jack of any device and greatly improved the audible range of your music. It has been a great little device, but has one disadvantage – it isn’t wireless. Sure, this helps keep the price down and prevents a drain on your phone’s battery, but there are times when a wireless connection is truly needed. Fortunately Kinivo has that covered as well with their BTX270 Wireless Bluetooth Portable Speaker.

Sometimes you need more volume than what your phone can supply. This Kinivo speaker system will fit the bill indoors or out! -

We took the opportunity to give this unit a try in an environment that we hadn’t tried before – an outdoor track meet! Among the noise of the participants, the P.A. system and the natural environment (wind), would it be able to be heard?

Pairing the device was as simple as could be expected using the Bluetooth protocol. In fact, it supports streaming from any Bluetooth (A2DP) capable device. A nice feature when pairing it with iPads & iPhones is that the speaker’s battery status is shown, something we haven’t seen from other similar speakers.

About the size of a walkie-tallkie (remember those?), it boasts two 3W drivers that really pump the sound out. I can 100% attest to this, as when I first turned it on at the track meet I neglected to check the volume level. It was on full… This brought immediate attention to our team tent from all the other teams when a random song from Spotify started playing. I couldn’t find the off button fast enough! Kinivo claims up to 8 hours of battery life, and based upon the weight of the unit I have no reason to doubt this claim. Charging is easy with the included USB cable, and a padded exterior makes this a great portable speaker to carry without worrying about it damaging your other items.

Available on Amazon for just under $60, this is a perfect system when you need to broadcast in a wider area than just one room in the house (although it works fine for this also). If you think this is too much speaker for your needs, be sure to check out Kinivo’s website for many other great solutions. You can also pay them a visit on Facebook or Twitter to see what they’re releasing next!

    This sounds like something I really need to check out. Very cool! Great review!

  2. Thanks Scott for this review. I love wireless speakers but it is hard to find a good one. I am going to check this out. Thanks for the recommendation. I have to bookmark this site so I can poke around when I have more time. I love good product reviews.

  3. Good review. Looks like a great gismo. It’s not something I’ll ever need though. I wish I could be young again and run with a pair of fresh legs. I’d be happy to celebrate that without needing to hear something other than the wind in the trees.

    I have been in the market for one of these wireless speakers for awhile now, but there are so many out there with such a range of prices it’s hard to know how good they are. Thank you for the review!

  9. This sounds like an awesome gadget!
    I want one!

  10. What a cool product! I love that it is portable and wireless! That makes it so useful in so many summer activities!

  11. My boys love listening to music. I need to invest in a wireless speaker for them as all of the ones we have are meant to be plugged in. I will definitely look into this one though.
