New British brand i-box introduced the aptly named Twist portable wireless speaker that also doubles as a speakerphone when paired with a Bluetooth enabled smartphone. A built-in noise-cancelling microphone allows the Twist to operate as a hands-free speakerphone for taking and making calls.
Inside the Twistʼs svelte casing is a pair of 38mm full-range drivers and a passive bass radiator, ensuring a potent and detailed sound that belies the Twistʼs compact dimensions — just 24×6.5x6cm (WxHxD). From rock and dance to jazz and classical, the company claims Twist delivers a performance brimming with punch, poise and panache, ensuring crisp, clean clarity across all forms of audio content.
The Twistʼs built-in battery is charged via the supplied USB cable, each charge providing around five hours of use. In addition to Bluetooth connectivity, music sources may be connected via a 3.5mm jack – a suitable cable is supplied for this purpose.
Like all i-box products, the Twist comes with a class-leading five-year warranty, ensuring exceptional peace of mind.
