The XBOOM Capsule Speaker is an awesome gadget for everyone, audiophiles and music blasters alike. In its collapsed form, it's a tiny little thing—easily fits in the palm of your hand—which makes it the ultimate portable speaker for parties, traveling, or even just listening to music in the comfort of your own home. When you expand the speaker, it ends up looking like this:
Because the speaker system is embedded within the accordion folds, you have to open it up every time you use it. It wouldn't be a very useful speaker if you tried to operate it in its closed form :P

I genuinely think this is a fabulous idea for sharing and playing music. There's a little cord that comes out of the bottom, so there's no tangled mess of trying to figure out which lines belong to what, but there also are additional cords to attach to your laptop for charging purposes or connecting to other XBOOM speakers:
How cool is that? The more speakers you connect together, the louder the surround system. I only received one product for review so I haven't tried connecting two speakers together, but it seems like a fabulous idea for outdoor parties.

I personally have been using mine in the shower lately! It's obviously not waterproof so I can't bring it into the shower, but because it's so much louder than my phone alone, I just plug it in, turn on Pandora, keep it on the counter, and I get shower music! So awesome.

XBOOM is your own personal boombox; whether it be sharing music with others or blasting it at parties and other social events, I would definitely recommend it to all music lovers.
XBOOM is available in nine different colors and retails for $34.99, but Amazon has it available for $16.99, which is an absolute steal! Mine is Spring Bud Green, which is an electric lime color, but I love how many different shades there are.

Tell me:
Do you use a boombox or portable speaker to listen to your music? What's your favorite way to listen to music?
FTC Disclosure:
I received a complimentary XBOOM product from the retailer in exchange for an honest and unbiased review (thank you, Mega Merchants!). I was not compensated in any way, shape, or form to write a positive review, and all thoughts are mine and mine alone.
