Lyrix PowerBall bluetooth speaker review


IMG_0236
A portable Bluetooth speaker is something everyone should have nowadays. The ability to freely play music from your tablet/mobile device anywhere in your house without having to walk back and forth to change songs or settings is easier than ever.

IMG_0233The Lyrix PowerBall Bluetooth speaker from Digital Treasures boasts 12 hours of uninterrupted music in a single charge, and the superior sound quality comes from the unique geodesic sphere that reminds me of Epcot Center’s Spaceship Earth. Extremely easy to turn on and off, the PowerBall also includes a 3.5mm jack for headphones, a play/pause, forward and back button for your music.

It delivers strong bass and clear quality music you would hear from Bluetooth speakers that would cost over $100, and it’s roughly half the price. As for battery life it clocked in at about 10 hours and 42 minutes of nonstop playing as I blasted music at its maximum volume for most of the day. I can’t say my roommates were too happy about it.

While definitely not the prettiest thing out on the market, The Powerball looks like one midsize speaker ready to party with the hit of a button. Included in the packaging is a cover of the same material to protect your speaker from dirt and dust and complete the Epcot looking sphere. The Powerball comes in multiple colors you can choose from to fit your style and can be used outside for pool parties, picnics or get better sound out of your laptop or any other Bluetooth-connected device.
