BoomBright wireless speaker gives a rainbow pattern light show following the beat of the music

Tech tools review: The water resistant Irish designed speaker blends into the room more as a decoration

BoomBright Wireless Speaker


BoomBright is a bluetooth speaker with a difference. Not only does it play your music wirelessly, it will also double as a light feature in your home.

This Irish designed speaker has somewhat of an alien look to it, with markings carved into the surface. But hook it up to your music player and you can create your own light show.

There are 16 colours to choose from, or have a flashing light show that uses rainbow patterns that follow the beat of the music.

It’s bigger than the average bluetooth speaker in my audio line-up, but it blends in with the room as more of a decoration than a speaker.


You can also sync up to three BoomBright speakers, and they can be used outdoors – in summer, of course – as they are water resistant, with an IP65 rating.
