Sporting dual 40mm drivers that deliver rich, deep audio with amplified acoustics, the integrated passive subwoofer comes with a ported enclosure for enhance bass performance. It is said that the boomBOTTLE’s built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery delivers up to 10 hours of continuous playback on a single charge, and has a connectivity range of 33 feet.
