There are times when you cannot wear earphones but you’d still want to listen to some music while going about your outdoor or fitness activity. It will probably be inconvenient if you lug around a portable speaker, unless you can actually put it on your body unobtrusively. This is what audio brand Polk BOOM wants to happen with their new product, Boom Bit, which is a truly wearable Bluetooth speaker to bring along, or rather, wear along for all of your on-the-go music listening needs.
The Bit can be worn anywhere on your body as long as you’re comfortable and it will not interfere with whatever it is you’ll be doing, like biking, mountain climbing, running, etc. It is roundly rectangular with soft edges and is only a little under 3 inches in diameter and weighs 8 oz. It comes with a strong, steel clip that will supposedly hold the speaker in place, even if you’re doing something a bit more extreme. It is also sweat, dirt, sand, or mud and shock-proof so you don’t need to worry about bringing it to “punishing” environments.
In terms of sound quality, it is just loud enough for you to enjoy your sounds but at the same time, be aware of your surroundings and all the ambient sounds. Battery can last for 3 hours but is easily chargeable as you can plug it into any USB port. It also has a speaker functionality so you can use it to take calls.
The Boom Bit is now available at Polk BOOM’s online store for just $29.99. It comes in different colors like Black, Sport Blue, Volt Yellow, Lava Red, and two-toned Grey/Mint.
