Products that make music easier and more fun are always tops on my list. One company that knows how to fuse fashion, fun and music, is Chic Blvd. I reviewed their nifty Rock Boom, Mp3 player case with built-in speakers, back in February 2010. But the company also makes an adorable, and a quite serviceable product called the ChickBoom Keychain Speaker that literally lets you take your sound out loud, wherever you go. It is literally as simple as finding your keys in your handbag!
As you can see from the photo, the device is a round ball that contains a speaker, attached to a ring-style key chain. The very lightweight, pink, ball (it comes with a flower/rainbow design as well and in blue) is slightly smaller than a golf ball. Simply plug one end into your Mp3 player, and it’s a speaker!
The ball (the “ChicBoom“), can be connected to any listening device on the market (even your mobile phone) via a standard 3.5mm stereo jack (included). The sound isn’t quite concert hall quality, but it’s pretty darn good, with relatively little distortion, for it’s size. Even better it has a built-in, rechargeable (lithium-ion) battery (charger plug also included), to provide you with up to four hours of sound. This little device even has a valume control button and a blue indicator light –amazing, especially for the price….$24.99!
…and if you’re a guy reading this and you want one, but not in pink, just remember that the ChicBoom is also available in blue. You know you want one!!!
I personally think these would make great gifts for your wedding party, and for a weekend host/hostess gift. You will be remembered, and thanked, every time they reach for their keys!
