It’s an unfortunate fact of life that things don’t usually work out the way you want them to; the painting you thought would complement the colour-scheme in your lounge actually looks like a page full of melted crayon, or the chic new haircut you thought would make you look like a rocker chick actually just makes you look like you stuck your head in a blender. Similarly, trying to provide a soundtrack for your life doesn’t work when you’ve got a boombox on your shoulder, ruining the effect. Get exactly what you imagined and pay R649 for a Wowee Slim portable speaker.
Providing the perfect blend of convenience and performance, the Wowee Slim portable speaker offers a functional and eye-pleasing solution to having to carry around a pair of bulky external speakers. Impressive hybrid technology that produces crystal clear audio with a bass-kick like an angry mule is all compressed into a good-looking speaker that literally fits into the palm of your hand. Much like its predecessor, the Slim’s claim to fame is its ability to magically turn everything it’s placed on into a makeshift subwoofer, delivery different frequency responses for any surface.

I was surprised opening this thing at how small it was. Its length and height are a little smaller than my iphone3g and about the same thickness! I had read the reviews and was kind-of sceptical by looking at the size. At first plugging it in I was rather disappointed until I realized it needed a medium. Putting the thing down on my table I immediately felt I was getting my money's worth. It's quite fun trying out new surfaces and I can't wait to show it to my friends (…) All over; great sound, amazing portability, and absolutely great engineering. It is such an efficient and sturdy design. I really appreciate the thought put into it. The colour changing light is a very efficient battery and sound quality indicator. Great product. Try it on the fridge! – Abe; Amazon customer
