What’s interesting about Dknight MagicBox II Bluetooth speaker is the cheap price tag for the good sound quality throbbing from a small speaker. Clearly, there’s more to explain than just say it produce superb sound.
What we have inside this Dknight MagicBox speaker is two highly powerful 40mm, a total 10 watt, acoustic sound driver speakers with a passive radiator system.
A speaker with passive radiator system looks like a normal speaker from the front, but it comes without a voice coil or magnet assembly on the backside which aide in producing deep tones within a small size enclosure.
In other words, with passive radiator speakers you can expect the sound quality as good as much larger speakers. But it doesn’t mean MagicBox 2 is comparable to mid size 72watt of audio power speaker. So, keeping your expectation in check let’s see what it got for us.
Dknight MagicBox II Bluetooth 4.0 portable wireless speaker – Beyond Sound
Looks is important. If not, I’d be assembling speakers with top notch configurations within a wooden box which will always sound great at ¼ the price of its equivalent in the market. Dknight MagicBox has never failed to surprise me with its indigenous art of designing their speakers. The front side of the speaker is all Richie looks.
It’s not just the looks; the exterior of the speaker has soft rubber cover for protection against accidental slips and unwanted scratches.
On the top of the speaker, we find four dedicated buttons for play/pause, forward, backward and receiving or making calls. On the side of the speaker are the slots for charging, aux in port, and on/off button.
It is available in three different colors—black, blue, and red.
The size is the same as the original MagicBox which is 6 x 2 x 1.6 inches. It’s small enough to carry anywhere you go conveniently with the speaker weighing just 11.5 ounces.
Battery life is quite decent with 2000 mAh that’ll give about 10 hours of playtime at 80% volume.
Dknight MagicBox 2 is equipped with Bluetooth 4.0 technology and so pairing is easy within a range of 33 feet. Bluetooth 4.0 is also known to consume less battery than its predecessors. There is also an Aux port to play music from other sources as well.
Missing/Need Improvements with Dknight MagicBox 2
The speaker is not waterproof neither water-resistant. If that matters, this isn’t your speaker. You should be looking for waterproof Bluetooth speaker.
I was reading one Dknight MagicBox II review and share her concern; the speaker won’t turn off automatically like most Bluetooth speakers when unpaired with a device for more than 30 seconds or so. This quickly drains the battery life even when you are not using. I forget to turn off the switch almost every time I use this speaker which drain the battery life faster.
Dknight MagicBox 2 is not a replacement to the top dollar speakers. Yet, MagicBox 2 has done a good job with stereo separation which otherwise is not available with most portable speaker of this size. Bass is decent, battery life is good, connectivity technology is up to date, and design is trendy and sturdy. Overall, I won’t expect more for the price. I suggest you read other customer reviews here and find out what they have to say about this speaker.
If you don’t mind paying $5 extra for a water-resistant feature with comparable sound quality, the new Cambridge Soundworks Oontz Angle 3 is a good alternative.
