All the VAVA Voom speakers are Bluetooth-enabled and battery-powered. This particular model, the Voom 20, can deliver spacious sound from the compact enclosure thanks to two 8W drivers and two passive subwoofers inside. In contrast to the previous version, this one is smaller and has a higher IP rating, being safer for outdoor use.
The speaker measures 7.6 x 2.8 x 2.4 inches while weighing about 1.5 pounds. This way, you can easily carry it in your bag.
This model supports not only Bluetooth (4.0) but also NFC, so you can perform connection by taping the speaker with your phone. Moreover, you can connect two Bluetooth devices with the speaker simultaneously.
The VAVA Voom 20 has an IPX5 waterproof rating which means that it is safe from water splashes
The 5200 mAh battery inside allows for 8 hours of continuous work at the average volume levels. The speaker charges for about 6 hours. By the way, you can charge your USB device by connecting it to the Voom 20.
Opening the box, I saw the envelope with documentation and a user guide. The cables (3.5mm AUX cable and a micro-USB to USB cable) were packed in a separate pouch. The package also included a carrying case for the speaker.
I have tested the produced sound both indoor and outdoor. The sound is powerful and the bass is really rich and deep when using the speaker indoors, and it's also very loud as for its size.
There is not too much distortion at the low end. Outside, the speaker loses a bit in the bass performance, and, of course, a bit of volume. This VAVA Voom 20 speaker uses the aptX audio coding, so the sound from the source is transmitted to the speaker via Bluetooth without quality loss.
VAVA claims that the speaker's wireless range is 33 feet, but I have noticed that it can be extended up to 40 feet if there are no obstacles between the connected device and the speaker.
The manufacturer also claims to provide a lifetime warranty for this model.
This way, I can estimate the overall performance of the speaker to 9/10.
The VAVA Voom 20 Bluetooth speakers have a tubular shape and rubberized cover on the sides.
The design is exceptionally clean; there is nothing on top of the speaker except for the row of buttons, two LEDs, and the VAVA logo. There are such buttons as Bluetooth, Mute, button to accept the calls, up/down volume control buttons, and Power button. One LED indicator lights up when the speaker is on (and also works as the charge level indicator), and the other informs you when the Bluetooth connection is activated. The bottom of the speaker incorporates four rubber feet for better grip.
All the inputs (AUX input, micro USB, and USB) are protected by the rubber cover.
In the final part of my VAVA Voom 20 review, I would like to highlight the main features of the speaker:
