Parrot Boombox

 

Parrot brings Bluetooth to its Boombox. Does it boom or bust? Andy finds out.

On the back is the AC power and line-in connection, while on top are a small set of control buttons and a status light. There are two volume control buttons, a connection button for opening the Boombox to new Bluetooth connections and the status light...

Add a powerful set of wireless speakers to your Mac. Parrot's Boombox looks like a smaller and more refined version of the Apple iPod HiFi, but it's built for your Mac and works via Bluetooth.

Good sound, attractive design, can share between multiple Macs

Expensive investment, Bluetooth music streaming is only supported by Mac OS X Leopard

If dispensing with cable clutter and the capacity to share the system between multiple computers and any other AD2P-supporting device sounds attractive, this is a powerful system capable of high-quality sound reproduction, albeit at a relatively high...

If you wish to amplify the sound coming from your iPod or MP3 player then this could be for you. However it is also Bluetooth so you can do the same from your mobile phone or PDA.

This unit is neither small or light. It is matt black and the sound that comes from it is great. When this unit arrived I plugged the 3.5mm jack into my stereo and the stereo plugs into the back of the unit. The setting was that I normally use to my...

Parrot - Boombox

 

We've got used to Parrot swooping along with wireless solutions to wired problems over the last year, the most noticeable of which include photo frames, car stereos and speakers. Bluetooth aficionados seem unperturbed by the fact ...

The Parrot Boombox is a powerful set of party speakers that offer clean sound and thumping bass. Although not particularly accessible in terms of additional audio control, the performance and added advantage of Bluetooth make this a reasonably priced...

Parrot BOOMBOX speaker

 

By far the best bluetooth speaker I've come across. I had a Blueant M1 previously and had to send it back due to appalling sound quality.

Ease to setup up

Slightly steep on price

Works with Unibody Macbook Pro built in bluetooth in Leopard OS X 10.5.6

Some break ups and distortion at high volumes

Research before you buy - great sound, ease of use!

 

People on here need to do their research before they buy a product then find out it doesn't work well with what they have and give this product a bad review. I knew my device was A2DP capable so I wouldn't need a dongle or cables for streaming, ......

Extremely easy to pair and play with my Haier Rhapsody Ibiza which has A2DP bluetooth capability, wonderful, rich sound, stays connected with no distortion or clips as long as you stay within 30 feet of speaker

Only con with the Ibiza is volume cannot be control by my device, you do need to control it through the speaker. Small price to pay for a great product

Excellent Bluetooth Speaker for those familiar with Bluetooth Setups

 

As a brief background, my bluetooth experience began with the Sony Ericsson T68i cell phone in 2003 and a jabra bluetooth headset. Since then I have used bluetooth to sync a Palm T3 wirelessly with a PC, transfer data to and from other bluetooth...

Excellent Audio (dependent on bluetooth source), Easy to Connect to PC (dependent on user familiarity with bluetooth setups), Solid construction, Aesthetically pleasing form, Simple controls

Requires a basic working knowledge of bluetooth's strengths and weaknesses
