The Divoom Airbeat-10 is a portable, splash proof speaker. It comes in the form of a small rubberised cube which feels solid, and houses a 2-inch driver. There are four colour options to choose from including Sky Blue, Passion Red, Pearl White and Smart Black.
The speaker measures 3.1 x 3.4 x 1.8 inches and weighs just 5.6 ounces which means you’ll have no trouble simply throwing it into a bag for when you’re travelling. The driver itself is covered by a metal grille, while the rest of the speaker is housed in the rubberised plastic. On the left-hand side you’ll find four buttons: power, play and two volume buttons, the microphone is also located here so you can take phone calls. A micro-USB charging port and AUX-in can also be found under a small rubber flap.
In the box you get a suction cup, bike mount, USB charging cable and a 3.5mm audio cable. The suction cup screws onto the back of the speaker, and during my test it proved to be extremely strong; so much so that it was quite difficult to remove from the wall tiling.
It has an IPX4 rating which means it’ll be able to withstand ‘splashes’ of water, but it’s not fully waterproof. When testing in the shower the water fell straight off the speaker while the must continued to play. The built-in 500mAh battery should keep the speaker going for up to six hours of playback time, although this will depend on how loudly you play your music.
The Airbeat-10 uses Bluetooth 3.0 to pair with your smartphone or other device. To do so simply power the speaker on and hold down the button until a small blue LED begins to flash on the front. The speaker will now be visible in the Bluetooth settings of your device, and by tapping it you’ll pair the two devices.
Considering how small the Airbeat-10 is the audio quality is surprisingly good. It won’t leave you speechless, but for a budget speaker such as this I was impressed. Volume wise it packs a punch and I rarely found myself using it at 100% volume, even in the shower I had it set around 70%/80% of max volume.
The bass response is somewhat lacking a little, although its not completely missing. Divoom says that using the suction cup on a flat surface will improve this, which it does, but not massively. Overall though the Airbeat-10 produces crisp audio, with clear vocals.
The Divoom Airbeat-10 costs £29.99 over on Amazon.co.uk, which in my opinion is a fair price to ask. It’s portable, splash proof and delivers good quality audio so its hard to see where you can go wrong with this.
