Among Divoom’s fine collection of speakers, both wired and wireless, we have one of the smaller cousins, the Airbeat-10.
Perfect for people who need decent quality music on the go, the Airbeat-10 is a small sized Bluetooth speaker capable of pushing volumes I wouldn’t expect from a device this size. Similar to my other reviews of Divoom’s products, one of the strengths of their speakers of the volume they can push without their music crumbling at the cost. The Airbeat-10 is no exception, and rightly ranks among the best Bluetooth speakers of its size.
The 2″ driver inside the Airbeat-10 allows it to push quality sound for the size. I wasn’t partying with this thing, but conveniently hooking it up to my laptop or phone was a pleasing relief when I need volume actually loud enough to hear. Using the speaker on my laptop, I enjoy listening to some country and classic rock without noticing much distortion. With enough bass, the speaker tends to rattle, but this is not something you should be listening to dubstep with.
But playing games with the Airbeat attached was a MUCH needed improvement over my Dell’s built-in speakers, and I only needed the volume half-way to enjoy it.
Like other Divoom speakers, you can use the speaker to take calls should you have it connected to your phone (Bluetooth or wired) and the simple four button layout made it very easy to use. While this is a Bluetooth speaker, I only wish it included Bluetooth 4.0 technology for better battery savings, but with the 6 hour battery life I was getting, I can’t really complain.
The speaker is also water-resistant with an IPX44 rating, and includes the option to mount it to your bike or suction cup it to a flat surface. I never feel the need to take a speaker to go while biking, but the option is there.
Divoom once again has shown me that their Bluetooth speakers are among the best you can buy, and I’m happy to recommend their smaller option to anyone looking for a small, but quality Bluetooth speaker. Check it out here on their official webpage, or Amazon where it’s currently $29.90.
