There are a lot of portable speakers in the market that let you enjoy your music outdoors. The Divoom iTour-10 is one of the few products in the market that not only connects to different devices, but is also small enough to fit in your pocket.

The iTour-10 measures 50 x 50 x 35mm and comes with a 36mm micro speaker. Out of the box you get the capsule speaker, a USB cable, and three mobile phone audio adaptors (Nokia, Sony Ericsson, and 2.5mm jack). The 3.5mm audio jack connector and LED indicator are located underneath the speaker, while the power button is located on the side.
The unit comes with a rechargeable battery, which saves you money as all you need to do is to connect it to a USB port when it goes flat. In order to get extra bass from the speaker, a user must ‘open’ the capsule by twisting it counter-clockwise. The resonator allows it to produce clearer sound, while the cone design allows it to project sound in all directions. Take note that the speaker can also be used without being opened, although it won’t sound as good.
We connected the unit to our iPod and found that despite its size, it was able to produce clear audio. It may not handle bass as well as other speakers (especially when the source volume is set to max), but we didn’t really mind as it was not designed to be pushed that hard. The unit works best when the source is set between low-mid volumes.
The unit lasted close to six hours before we had to recharge it for four hours (via USB). Using an AC adapter will shorten the charging process to two and a half hours.
The Divoom iTour-10 is a surprising pocket speaker – it sounds good for its size, comes with a rechargeable battery, and comes with various attachments for your mobile phone.
It is available now at the Technology Traders website (www.technologytraders.com.au) for $29.95.
