When it comes to portable speakers, then I guess one can easily find a good quality Bluetooth speakers either online or offline. But here the point is that the ‘creative’ quotient has started to eradicate in all present and upcoming portable Bluetooth speakers. In other words, these gadgets are becoming pretty much predictable as far as their mechanisms are concerned.
Also to that, It’s not always cool when you constantly syncing your phone up to speakers via Bluetooth and at the same time, It plays as an enemy to your smartphone’s battery.
But as we all know, innovation is something which can take place anytime in any form. That’s how I felt when I came across Olixar Drop and Play Wireless Speaker. The makers of this device claim to play music without the need for any kind of intermediary connection such as Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, just by placing the phone on top of the speaker.
I know things are getting exciting from here, I’ll explain and review the whole mechanism of this device further in this article.
As far as unboxing goes, Olixar relied upon the standard structure of packaging. The package contains ‘Olixar Drop & Play Wireless Speaker’, Mini USB Cable, 3.5mm audio cable and a user manual.

Features & Design
Basically, the device functions by using the induction technology which quickly amplifies music simply by placing your phone onto the speaker, aligning the phone’s speakers with the indicated location on the top of the Olixar unit. You can also get a secondary connectivity option as the device comes with a 3.5mm jack and an AUX audio cable for integrated compatibility.
The great part about this ‘Drop and Play speaker’ is that the device is compatible with a wide range of devices which have built-in mobile speakers.
There is also a built-in battery which is easily charged up via USB cable which comes in the box. It can give you the playing time of up to 5 hours with a single charging.
Olixar Drop and Play Wireless Speaker is available for only £20.00 from Mobilefun.
As far as the audio performance is concerned, as I’ve mentioned this earlier in the article that the device has a built-in induction technology for crystal clear sound. But when I tried the device in person, I have actually experimented with various genre of music and they produced decent clear sound and standard bass.
But one need to be careful while positioning the phone’s speakers with the desired location on the top of the Olixar unit or you’ll end up having disturbed audio.
