Music is the language of the soul, or so the saying goes. The explosion of the Walkman in the 1980s across the globe certainly saw a paradigm shift in how we tuned in to our songs, where most folks preferred to take the personal route with their own pair of headphones or earbuds, while on the other hand, there are others out there who preferred to take the “sharing” route, and this is achieved by bringing around a boombox. Well, you can follow this path in the 21st century with the portable and powerful £49.99 Wow Speaker.
Just like how you should never judge a book by its cover, the Wow Speaker packs a whole lot more bite and bark than one would expect. Despite its diminutive size, the Wow Speaker comes with a moulded rubber body which allows it to stand up to its fair share of knocks and hits, too. While Firebox claimed that the Wow Speaker is “practically indestructible”, we would take this claim at face value, unless you actually try to destroy it by running a steamroller over.
