XtremeMac’s Soma Travel is an unconventional speaker system that has some unique aspects. The system doesn’t require a wall power adapter and doesn’t have a built-in battery.
The speaker system can be used to enhance the sound quality of the majority of Apple’s products. It is compatible with iPods, iPhones and iPads of all generations.
The device is solid and is approximately 9.8 inches long and 2 inches tall. The unit is made out of black matte plastic. The speaker can support both generation iPads on the front docking system which can be popped-in and out. The speaker also features bottom feet which make it more stable. The plug of the dock connector is designed to accommodate cases for both iPads. When fully expanded, the device is 3.5 inches deep. It can be folded down to 2.2 inches if necessary.
The Soma Travel features a mini-USB port behind the speaker system. This can be used to connect the device to a computer. This is a good way to recharge the iPad if needed. It can also be used to sync the device with a computer.
The docking system allows users to recline their iPads, allowing them to have their audio directed according to their preference. The volume level is superior to most speaker systems within Soma Travel’s price range. The system features two speakers and a small control panel with volume buttons and a power switch.
