Review Summary:

PROS: Nice, simple design. Rubberized finish, great for outdoors. Great audio quality and ability to play very high volumes.

CONS: None.

Wireless speakers are currently one of the top selling accessories, which come is different sizes, audio technologies and different price ranges. Almost every noticeable 3rd part accessory manufacturer has its own collection of Bluetooth and Wi-Fi speakers, which make current competition very hard. This kind of competition also helps produce better speakers, better design and superior audio technology, all by maintaining the same price range.
NYNE is California-based company with expertise in audio technology which recently introduced a new wireless speaker, which is one small part of a strategy for NYNE to reinvent itself by creating a collection of Bluetooth speakers, docks, and home audio which will be presented at CES. One of the recently presented products was NB-250, water resistant Bluetooth speaker. It is priced at $250, which makes it direct counterpart of Logitech’s UE Boombox, which is one of the top selling wireless speakers at this point.

NB-250 is a lightweight and small product, which makes it perfect portable speaker. Its dimensions are 2.1 x 10.2 x 5.8 inches (5.3 x 25.9 x 14.7 centimeters), and weighs only 2.2 pounds (0.9 kilograms). One of a few downsides of Logitech’s UE Boombox is its weight, so NB-250 has some advantage. Wireless speakers are made to be portable, so they should be lightweight and easy to carry around. NYNE’s NB-250 is a perfect example of a portable speaker, taking its dimensions, weight and shape in consideration.

This product features nice design, which feels nice in hand and looks pleasing. This is not one of the best designs we’ve seen, since there are some astonishingly beautiful speakers on the market. Its finishing layer is a soft and rubberized finish which makes this product waterproof. This means that it repels occasional water splashes. In overall, NB-250 features nice design which could be considered as very competitive in its price range, which is around $250.

The bestselling point of NB-250 is its performance. As it is stated by NYNE, this speaker has a pair of high quality drivers which create strong bass, as well as 2 radiators which are there for low end boost. In practice, this creates very respectable audio quality. Sound is very clear and full, bass is very noticeable, while there’s very little noticeable distortion at high volumes. Speaking of those high volumes, it is amazing how powerful this little speaker is, since it is able to fill with sound even those large rooms. For its price, this product offers excellent audio quality, which surely won’t let you down.

NB-250 has a 1500mAh lithium Ion battery, which ensures over 10 hours of battery life, which is something you won’t see in many similar products, where an average battery life is no more than 6 hours.

In case you’re looking for a Bluetooth speaker which costs around $250, NB-250 is the right choice. It gives you a lot of your money, and you won’t be disappointed with its audio quality.
