Remember the Walkman? That power of portability. What if that Walkman had the speakers of a boombox, two headphone jacks, microphone input and could hold thousands of songs accessible with one swipe of your finger? That dream has been made a reality by the iMainGo X which also happens to look like a Walkman. It’s designed to work with any device with a 3.5 mm output jack, especially iPhones and iPods that fit snuggly inside. Once zipped up, the audio device is safe with the controls accessible through the clear vinyl back.
Operating touch screens and jog wheels are no problem. The portable setup promises huge sound due to its state-of-the-art electronics, premium output speakers, tuned bass and an ultra efficient digital amplifier and there’s no doubt that it delivers on that promise. The iMainGo X got put through its paces to see if it could hold onto the vibe you get when listening to a stereo or at least a nice set of computer speakers and it exceeded expectations every time with how well the music translated. Playing the new The Black Keys album Brothers tested the thickness and raw ambience whereas selecting the reissued Beatles In Mono showed it could hold onto the upper mid-range extremely well. It comes down to bass reproduction, which is where similar devices don’t quite stack up. These speakers are able to reproduce the full spectrum of sound, allowing you to relax on the beach with your audio device protected and impress your friends. When sound quality matters – even in your portable system – the iMainGo X won’t disappoint.
