In addition to playing music with smartphones via Bluetooth, you can also connect your HDTV with the speaker, though you should check for interoperability and compatibility among Bluetooth devices.

Housed with various audio inputs and output connectivity options  the XBoom ThunderX gets easily connected to your PC, TV, MP3 player or any musical instrument. It also features a DVD / CD player for you to spin your favorite’s playlists as well as enjoy the tracks on the discs your friends bring over. It supports multiple formats including DVD, CD, Xvid, MP3, and WMA. The Auto DJ mode works great creating seamless party playlists, blending each song into the next automatically, perfect for parties.

One interesting feature it packs is Child Safe Mode. This function helps prevent Sound Shocks in case the unit is turned on with the volume set at a high level. In CHILDSAFE mode, the volume increases gradually. CHILD SAFE mode can be easily turned on by pressing and holding ENTER / SET on the unit when the volume of the unit is “MIN”.

Performance

The speaker has a great and well balanced sound profile and sounds really good even at unsafe volume levels. Most of the speakers we had encountered perform well at lower and mid level volumes, but when you push things up, the speaker tends to distorts at certain frequencies and the bass tends to get destroyed. However, with XBoom Thunder it doesn’t feel like it’s restricting itself the louder you play it.

On tracks with intense sub-bass content, like DJ Magic Mike’s “Feel The Bass,” the speaker pumped out flawless bass with a lot of oomph and detail. The mid and treble ranges are well-defined, and surprisingly, the vocals sound crisp and clear, even at low volume levels.

On tracks like Titanium by David Guetta which features dance club style beats, the speaker produced high fidelity sound with attacking bass and oomph, and sounded booming and bright making this melody truly pleasurable from starting to end. Sia’s vocals were clearly audible in between the bass of this electric pop song.

In piano number like Clair de Lune from Claude Debussy’s the XBoom Thunder produced as much silence as much sound without any hint of hissing or buzzing during these quiet times, with higher register strings, bass, and vocals maintaining their presence in the spotlight.
