Energy Sistem Music Box 1+ review
Energy Sistem Music Box 1+ speaker certainly looks unique. The company sent us the Grape coloured option for review, which does stand out. I used the speaker in my car to play music from my phone (do not have a proper music system in my car), I used it in the bathroom and in office to play music, though in the last scenario I could not be too loud.
The speaker connected easily with my iPhone and one can even take calls on this. The audio output is pretty decent, though at this price do not expect something exceptional. What I did like about the speaker was that it is loud enough and the audio quality does not seem jarring or off, which can be a problem in some budget speakers.
But yes, when you start increasing the volume the audio quality begins to crack and it is noticeable. I was listening to music from the band Queen on this and when I increased the volume, the audio experience was not the best.
Where I did enjoy using this speaker the most was in my car. I felt this was one the best use cases for the speaker at least for me. The audio was much needed during my drive to work, and the Music Box 1+’s size works in its advantage. There’s also a hands-free option to take calls on the speaker itself when connected to your smartphone.
The speaker claims to have a full six hours of battery life, which is not bad. I didn’t have to charge it on a regular basis either, but I was using it max for around two hours a day.
The Energy Sistem Music Box 1+ is a good option for those who want a portable speaker with them for traveling. The audio quality is decent, it looks attractive, and at Rs 1,299 the price is just right.
