The FAVI Boomerang ($79.99 on Amazon) is a dual wireless Bluetooth speaker with NFC connect. It's a portable home theater for your iPad. Honestly, I was shocked at how fabulous the sound quality was when I tested it out.
I paired it with my iPad and chose a random movie to watch. I don't watch movies on the iPad very often unless I'm traveling. My daughter joined me and we watched The Avengers. The Boomerang really did produce home-theater-quality sound and I enjoyed watching the whole movie on the iPad, even though I'd seen it three times already.
You can also wear the Boomerang around your neck. I paired it with my iPhone and started my favorite playlist. It sounded like I was listening through headphones and not speakers. The bass in them sounded great. For me, though, I would only wear the Boomerang in this fashion sitting at home. I wouldn't gallivant around town with it around my neck.
The expansion sleeve design of the crescent shaped speakers allows for easy adjustable sizing for the neck and viewing angle for the iPad.
The Boomerang also has a built-in speakerphone for phone calls.
Here are the specs:
- 2 x 6W stereo sound in the regular sized Boomerang from integrated bass boosts and 2 x 4W sound in the Boomerang Mini.
- 10 hours of battery life from the built-in lithium ion battery.
- Several color options available in white, black, or yellow.
- It comes with an auxiliary cable and a USB charging cable.
There's also a mini-size version Boomerang ($59.99) for the iPhone.
