Package Content & Design
Everything comes well-protected. There are SonicGear IOX Bar 3 and user manual in the package. That’s all. As you can see, there is a USB cable for both power and audio connection. No AUX connection here. Do take note…

Great build quality for the price thanks to sturdy plastic housing. Attractive design with cool cyber outlook. The big volume button in the center controls everything including power and LED light effects. It is also clickable to change audio mode – Bluetooth or USB audio.

Nothing at the back but the USB cable. And there are 2 long anti-skid pads at the bottom.

Outstanding Bluetooth range! One of the best Bluetooth devices that I have tested. Period. IOX Bar 3 can reach up to 10m+ with obstacles like wall easily. In addition, it has virtually no lag between video and audio. So it is great to play games, watch movie on your smartphone and tablet. All thanks to the latest Bluetooth 5.3 chipset.

20W can easily fill up a large quiet room. Good enough when you are close to it usually. In addition, you can’t miss the attractive LED light effects.
