Kinivo BTX450 Premium Bluetooth Boom-box Review

The Kinivo products keep coming so I will keep reviewing them, and I really don't mind one bit! I have been struggling with how to pronounce the name Kinivo and I finally got the word on exactly how it should be spoken (Kee-Nee-Voh). Now that we're all clear on that one I can move on with the rest of this review featuring the $49 Kinivo BTX450 Premium Bluetooth Boom-box. Not really sure if it's a Boom-box per-say? Maybe a bit small for that but it for sure has more "umpf" than the Kinivo BTX270's I reviewed early. Now if you really want power and deep base, you are going to have to go for something larger and more dedicated like the Kinivo M2 Bluetooth Stereo Speaker System, again reviewed by yours truly earlier.

Getting back to the Kinivo BTX450 Premium Bluetooth Speakers. Where exactly do they fit in, where are they best used? Since they have a built in fairly high capacity 3600 mAh rechargeable battery with 6 hours of battery life, you don't need any wall power so you can take them just about anywhere and the Kinivo BTX450's do have a fair amount of volume to them so you can use them even when there is some background noise or in a larger sized room. The Kinivo BTX450's are still small enough to easily put inside a backpack or gym bag, and you can either pair your Bluetooth enable device to them or plug in using the supplied 3.5mm mini jack audio cable. They may be a bit large if you plan on adding them to your carry on so if this is your intended use then check out the Kinivo BTX270's since they are ideal for that purpose. But if you want a decent amount of quality sound in a still rather small package the Kinivo BTX450's would be the way to go.

I would describe the sound quality of the Kinivo BTX450's to be smooth, not an excessive amount of high or lows but enough to hear everything clearly and as it was intended to sound. Distortion is only present at very high volumes and when the bass is a dominant factor in the music being played. Most songs can be played at full volume with little to no audible distortion.

The Kinivo BTX450's are a very stylish looking speaker setup that would look good just about anywhere with its piano gloss black finish, simplistic top facing satin controls, clean round lines and sturdy rubber pads that keep it in place when the music starts a rock'n!

Here are all the stats for all you techno geeks:
