$99 BoomStick Claims To Magically Upgrade Sound Quality Of Your Subpar Earbuds
“While TV has made huge strides in terms of quality, from black and white to 4k, audio has been going backward,” said George Appling, co-founder of BoomCloud 360 in a statement. “In fact, our research shows that only 4 percent of consumers believe they are achieving (a) great audio experience with their headphones.”
To use the BoomStick, you plug one end into your mobile phone or other music player, then plug your headphones into the 3.5mm audio jack at the end of the device. Push the button, and you’re all set. Is it worth the $99 price tag? We won’t know until we’ve had a chance to check it out for ourselves.
You’ll need to wait a bit before the BoomStick is available. BoomCloud 360 announced the device today but provided little detail about its availability, other than that it will appear at “select” retailers in the spring.
