Package Content & Design
AudioBox BBX 800 TWS comes in a big package. It is a big portable speaker. And have some weight too so there is retractable trolley handle for you and me. Besides speaker, there are free wireless microphone, AUX cable, micro USB cable, IR remote control and user manual. As usual, the wireless microphone needs 2 AA size batteries.
Build quality is excellent all thanks to solid and sturdy ABS plastic chassis. The main 8″ speaker driver is covered with metal grill in front. 7 colours pulsating LED is located on the main driver too. Besides the trolley handle, there is another fixed one to carry BBX 800.

All the inputs and controls are located at back of the speaker. Yup, there is LED display, microphone input, volume and echo control. Master volume control (also act as power on/off switch) with bass and treble too. AUX input, USB and micro SD slot for direct media playback. As usual, do refer to all the photos for details…
AudioBox BBX 800 TWS is a powerful outdoor speaker thanks to 34W output power. More than enough to blast at large living room or tuition center. Even at outdoor party. Yes, you can change sound signature according to your taste and preferences. All thanks to treble and bass volume control. Overall, it has bright treble with clear and crisp sound. Bass is very little present there. Max bass volume with min treble volume control can’t even help much. In short, it’s a bright sound signature speaker that gives you clear vocal.
Wireless microphone range is as great as Bluetooth connection. Yes, no issue to link it up to 8m+ with obstacles. Range is great no doubt. However, audio and video sync is lag a little bit. Not so suitable for movie and games. Working great on karaoke, speech and music playback though. For FM reception, it is great. Clear and strong reception is what I get. Of course, it is depended on your area as well. Finally, built-in player works as expected.
Around 10 hours non-stop music playback it what I get. As usual, tests were done on average room sound level with LED lights turned on. And it takes less than 5 hours to fully charge. Colourful LED lights are great for party. You can turn it off with remote control if you don’t like it too. Oh, before I forget. The free wireless microphone is average at best. You need to put close to your mouth in order to get clear voice output.
