Hot weather means two things: pools and beaches. However, those aren’t the simplest places to bring your electronics. It doesn’t take a scientist to know that water and electricity don’t combine. That means if you wish to bring your favorite speaker to have some tunes on the beach you’re out of luck, unless in fact that speaker is water resistant like Cambridge Soundworks Oontz Angle 3.
Let me quickly throw you a question; how often do you get a speaker that can resist the elements and also produce quality sound for less than $35? Not too often I suppose.
Lots of times we have made smart investments in gadgets only to have it all blown away by non-deliberate mistakes such as getting them in contact with water, as in the case with my Bose Soundlink Mini II. Some gadgets are never meant for outdoor use. Surprisingly, this speaker can also produce quality sound without much distortion at maximum volume which is simply not possible for other speakers that cost less than $100. I’d say bass is decent and I love the two Precision neodymium drivers that deliver clean clear highs and mids.
I find this speaker great for poolside party, camping and backyard party. If you’re headed to (or throwing a pool party), one speaker that you’ll want by your side is the OontZ Angle 3. Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night will keep audiophiles from bringing their tunes to the beach party—that is, if they have Cambridge SoundWorks OontZ Angle 3.
Not every portable speaker can take up residence poolside or even in the shower, but the OontZ Angle 3 stands up to the challenge.
Cambridge SoundWorks prides themselves on making durable speakers, and their products usually have a sound quality to match their build. This speaker takes what we like about the company and puts it into — well, a stunning water resistant speaker perfect for the pool.
Key Features of Cambridge SoundWorks OontZ Angle 3
The Angle 3 is water resistant, It shouldn’t be confused with being waterproof and it comes in bold color choice. It’s Ultra-Portable and Ultra-Lightweight, and the price is surprisingly low
Sit tight and let see what makes the Cambridge SoundWorks OontZ Angle 3 so much better?
It’s amazing to know that the stylish edge featured by the original OontZ Angle now comes clearly enhanced in sonic strength as well as ergonomics. The speaker has an exceptionally light body of 9 ounces at a size of 5.2 x 2.8 x 2.5 in inches. And yet it has a sturdy design and the edges are more blunted or rather rounded for comfortable fit in the palm. The speaker comes in bold color choices; red, blue and black. The speaker plays horizontally in stylish design and stands to play vertically. The OontZ Angle 3 measures less than 130 mm long, so it will easily fit into your carry bag, school bag, or even in the glove compartment of the car.
Stereo Quality Sound
Remarkably louder in volume than the prior two Angle models, the 3rd generation OontZ Angle Plus is one of the best sounding speakers at its price range with astonishing clarity. For such a small sized speaker, the loud audio output is a wow factor. Besides, owing to the two passive sub woofers, the speaker delivers clear audio that is crisp at high frequency and powerful at mid frequency and a sound audio at low pitch. Not to forget the thumbing bass that comes from the larger speaker. The speaker does boom with a power packed loudness perfect for outdoor fun like poolside parties or picnics particularly. Its versatility comes from being particularly waterproof. No matter how low the music goes, the OontZ Angle 3 just excels itself every time, and pumps out some awesome bass with no distortion at all.
But more particularly, the rich bass and distortion free music even at maximum volume; a specialty of Cambridge SoundWorks engineering, is great for any indoor entertainment especially home theaters. Its dual acoustic drivers produce fairly grand stereo sound (powerful as 10watt) which is enhanced by the bass from the bigger speaker which has been designed strategically to make its effect prominent.
Coupled with ultra- lightweight features, OontZ Angle Plus 3 Bluetooth speaker has a water resistance of IPX5, so you are good to go in the shower and even in rain and splash. The OontZ Angle 3 will improve the mood no matter what is happening, and can improve the party no matter how many people you like to party with, this little speaker can go all the way to maximum volume with no distortion. Another added feature that adds to the toughness of all new Angle model is dustproof so you need not be wary about tagging it along when you go to the beach.
Its small size fits anywhere in backpacks or travel bags which makes it a perfect fit for hiking or trekking adventures. My buddy does love carrying it on his golf cart too.
Smart Bluetooth Connectivity
The Cambridge Oontz Angle 3 makes everything amazing, and takes only the blink of an eye to connect up to any Bluetooth enabled device, for wireless streaming capability. The Bluetooth connection is prompt with easy pairing. Your mobile phone or tablet will make the connection within seconds; there is hardly any hassle when connecting to the speaker as long as it is within the standard Bluetooth range of 33 feet which should essentially be unobstructed. It is compatible with PCs or laptop, Windows 10 machines, Apple machines, smartphones, tablets, iPhone, iPad, iPod and other non-Bluetooth devices by connecting the 3.5mm audio cable to the speaker’s (AUX-IN) jack.
So the ideal place to use the speaker as I see it is in open fields. And I love to have it in the car and experiencing a fair surround sound. Having the speakerphone is another important plus point. I never have to miss any of my calls while on the road. With well built-in Mic, the speaker makes conversations possible even when driving and incidentally the audio is loud and clear even on the speakerphone.
The battery life is fairly good at 2200mAh lithium-ion and can last up to 7 hours in a go. In case you prefer higher battery life, you might like to check out the Original OontZ Angle which has a slightly higher battery capacitance or perhaps the OontZ Angle plus 2 models which can last up to 15 hours on a single charge.
One amazing thing about the speaker is, it has the simplest functionality. If you will notice, the controls are located on the side of the speaker and it is easily operated by a press of each button. The volume can be controlled both from the Bluetooth appliance you are streaming from as well as the speaker. Speakerphones can also be operated either by your phone or the phone button on the speaker.
To wrap things up, The Oontz Angle is cool and stylish in design; OontZ Angles are prominent in the current market as well as in vogue amongst many fashionable youngsters. And because the Oontz Angle has evolved through three generations, they are provided with the choice to make their ultimate pick from these models. There is also a whole range of 5 colors to choose from.
Basically, the original OontZ Angle has a slightly lesser price for the more classical features especially devoid of the water resistant feature. The later generations have IPX5 water resistance and enhanced audio drivers designed to give stereo sound. OontZ Angle 2 is slightly bigger than the original and has 30% more playtimes besides being ideally weatherproof for outdoor fun. The 3rd generation has slightly lesser battery life than original while upping the stereo sound as well as the volume output of the woofers.
If you check out OontZ Angle reviews and other small portable speakers in competition, perhaps you already know they could well be the best quality speakers at its price point. Why not give a try?
