OontZ Angle 3 Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker review
Compared to other earlier version of the OontZ speakers created by Cambridge Soundworks, OontZ Angle 3 is much better improved. In the market, the Splashproof Portable Bluetooth Speaker is one of the best. Apart from being portable and splashproof, it has a sound that is of high quality and crystal clear. Moreover, the bass department has a good punch because of the enhanced stereo edition speaker features a passive subwoofer design. What you receive as a result is louder volume and with more bass, high-volume is distortion free. In addition, this sound combination results in a room filling sound that is not only suitable for indoor but also for outdoor parties.

The enhanced stereo edition Oontz angle 3 is designed to be resistant to water up toIPX5. That means that the Bluetooth speaker is rainproof, splash-proof, and even sand-proof. Therefore, the speaker is perfect for poolside, golf course, beach or even boat use. As well, with this device, Bluetooth connectivity is quite super easy. It does not require any effort to connect with one device to another as there is no requirement to press a button. That is because the Oontz angle 3is able to pair with another device automatically.
The battery life of this Enhanced Stereo Edition speaker is roughly about 12 hours. The reason for this battery life is that extra battery power is required to drive much more sound. Because of that, certainly,you will be required to more frequently charge the device.
The various versions or models of Bluetooth speakers available are always trying to be unique in terms of their designs. It’s only with a unique design that a speaker is able to stand out from the many varieties of speakers available on the market. While this is just okay, the problem is that some brands become so much obsessed with the design aspect that at the end of the day the functionality of the product is compromised. With the Oontz angle 3, a different approach seems to have been taken.
In terms of the design shape of the Enhanced Stereo Edition Bluetooth speaker, it is triangular. This particular design shape of the speaker has resulted in a speaker that is extremely stable but also versatile. There is no worry about the possibility of the speaker tipping over.
What’s more, since it is IPX5 certified, it means that the speaker is water resistant. This should not be confused with the speaker being waterproof. Also, the surfaces of the speaker, apart from its side panels, are sheltered using the speaker grille. The controls are located on the side panels. Because of that, it is easier to access the controls and they are very tactile.
In addition, its built-in mic for hands-free speakerphone can be easily connected with iPhone, smartphone, iPad, iPod, Samsung and other devices. Because of this feature, you are able to take phone calls while traveling or driving with this device. Overall, the design of the Oontz angle 3 is quite impressive. No complaints.
The sound performance of this Bluetooth speaker compared to its predecessor represents an improvement. The mids and highs are crisp clean with vocal reproduction and detailed midrange.
The passive radiator producing the bass in the speaker is located the speaker’s bottom. The bass effect becomes more noticeable if you place the passive radiator bottom down. Making the passive radiator stand on its end ensures that you receive less bass.A bass with a thump that is nice and little is produced when it is bottom down. This creative feature enhances the general sound performance. With the peak power of 10+ Watts, the sound produced is great enough for your backyard party and gatherings.
In terms of compatibility or functionality, if several handsets are connected to the Splashproof Portable Bluetooth Speaker then pairing can be a bit challenging. The speaker tends to pair by design with the last handset that used it. It can be infuriating sometimes trying to pair a new phone or un-pair the last phone. It is important to note though that this is not a distinct problem reserved for this speaker; other Bluetooth speakers also usually have this same problem.
