Boom 💥 under the Christmas tree! Motion Boom- First impressions

Just before Christmas, I received a package with the Motion Boom I had purchased.

I purchased this speaker thanks to the very positive recommendation @Steve976.

First impressions?

Listen - I liked this loudspeaker from the very first moment!
After a slight initial equalizer correction (I slightly lowered the bass and increased the treble), they sound amazing!
You Tube music sounds great in basic quality.
I’m surprised because when I connected my smartphone via Bluetooth with a good audio amplifier (+ good big speakers) the sound from YouTube was of very poor quality “lack of energy and life”.
It was a little better when I connected the smartphone to the amplifier with a cable.
So I am really surprised by the sound of my Boom.
It has a nice bass for my ear, there is a clear soprano. The sound is like a “dynamic leopard” and not a “sleeping turtle”.
Steve, I am grateful to you for the rest of my life. I didn’t think that with poor quality audio from You Tube, Boom could make music so pleasing to the ears.
I also really like the solid construction of this loudspeaker.
High-quality materials that are nice to the touch and were used to make Boom.
The loudspeaker is very easy to use. The first Bluetooth connection to my smartphone is lightning fast.
This is the second Soundcore product (the first is of course my Liberty 2 Pro :slightly_smiling_face:) that I am really happy with.
Below I present some photos taken by me after taking Boom out of the package.

I’m really happy to hear that you like it. I was hoping you would. I liked mine so much I bought a second one almost immediately to pair in TWS. I’ve never regretted it for even 1 second.

Now that’s that out of the way - Merry Christmas to you and your family my friend!


PS Great pictures as usual, really top-notch! :clap:

Really nice fire place!
So we are “brothers” firing wood if this is such one for wood. :joy:
Often artificials around.

I use a huge tile stove in the living.
Plenty of wood around the house.
Often gifted by my Polish friends. :grin:
Of course all untreated wood.

I have such a open fire place in the basement.
But I never use.

@Steve976 We have a Pioneer HM76 in our kitchen for casual, everyday listening. It has a nice appearance.
But the sound comparison looks like this:
Pionieer- 3/10
Boom 10/10.
Cost of purchase:
1x Pioneer = 4x Boom.

Thank you for your good wishes!
Merry Christmas for you and all your family!

@Chiquinho Thank you for your opinion.
All my life I have smoked in the stove like you: coal and wood from the garden. We have gas heating for a year. In the former boiler room, my wife allowed me to do:
“Nervous rehabilitation room for a 50-year-old guy :wink: :joy:

Merry Christmas for you and all your family!

Very nice first impressions, and some more great photos.

Looking forward to a couple of things…

  • further testing and comments
  • when you’ll be getting a second one :wink:

You know about the problems with natural gas here in Europe.
So we are glad we have such a possibility.

Thank you very much :slightly_smiling_face: .
You guessed it - I’m really thinking of buying a brother
for Boom.
They will be able to work for me at TWS together :grinning:.

When there is no gas left, we will still have sun in winter and warm duvets :rofl: .

Well I probably have told you this numerous times before, but 2 is better than 1.

Mine connect to each other very easily, and having a right and left channel is great.

You also get at least a doubling in sound output. Twice the power and twice the Speaker area - it’s a win-win proposition. :clap:

@Steve976 1. What do you think is the best distance between 2 speakers for the best stereo sound?
2. What do you think can be the maximum distance between 2 speakers so as not to lose the TWS connection?

Best is if the listener and the speakers build a equilateral triangle

@Chiquinho Thanks for the good advice.
I will apply it in the future :slightly_smiling_face:.

I have written a lot about how speaker’s should be placed.
And a lot can be read at the internet about this theme.
Best is a room without any furniture!:rofl:

@Steve976 @Chiquinho I plan to place 2 x Boom in an unusual L-shaped room (basement). The corner of the 2 walls will be in the way of the connection between the speakers. So I was curious how “strong” the wireless connection between the two Booms is. I asked out of curiosity :slightly_smiling_face:.

I think you are going to love having 2 Booms in TWS. I know I do! :clap:

PS I still haven’t gotten around to measuring how far apart I can put mine in TWS. Like I mentioned in my message, I had them at least 15 feet apart with no problems.

You have to check it out if a long distance between left/right channel
makes really sense.
I could be bad for the stereo acoustic impression .
In this case Partycast would be better I assume.

Congrats on Thread of the Week @sodojka. It was well deserved IMHO. :clap:
