The Kinivo ZX100 – Pocket Speaker is a small, sleek, and truly great invention!

The speaker is small and its design fits perfectly in the palm of the hand, meaning that our fingers can comfortably grab it; it is truly pocket-friendly!

The speaker has an interesting resonator, which can be expanded from within the speaker, which explains the speaker’s small size, but also allows increasing its volume. This feature is very useful whether you are using the speaker in a driving car or bus, or even in a larger room.

Another element making this speaker pocket-friendly is the 3.5-mm audio cable which is compatible with all iPods, iPhones, MP3 players, CD players, laptops, Android smartphones and Blackberry smartphones. The design of the Kinivo ZX100 took into prior consideration the consumer’s unhappiness of finding their earphone cables all tangled up after taking them out of their pocket, and created a very intelligent way of making sure that the cable does not suffer this “tangled up” fate. A longer charging cable is also made available if the existing audio cable from the mini speaker is not long enough.

Kinivo ZX100 has a powerful volume for its small size. In all circumstances used, it has proved successful, including listening to music in one’s bedroom, creating a home dance party, or even used during a primary school children’s Christmas play in a big gym setting, where children sang accompanied by the music from this mini speaker.

The battery life of the Kinivo ZX100 is 6 hours, which is quite impressive for a device this size. Furthermore, you can use it even when it’s charging.

Another cool feature (if you have multiple Kinivo pocket speakers), is that you can daisy chain them together like pictured below. This will give a much better sound quality and, of course, a higher volume.

Overall, Kinivo ZX100 has a lot of interesting features, it is designed in a very beautiful and intelligent manner, and its use has been proven successful in many different contexts.
