Across the top panel, there are controls for (from left to right) Power, Volume Down, Play/Pause, and Volume Up. The volume controls work together with your mobile phone’s volume levels, not independently of them. If held down long enough, the Volume Up/Down buttons act as track navigation buttons, and if you hold down Play/Pause, it will disconnect the speaker from your currently paired mobile device and make it ready to pair with another device.
Pairing the Voombox Ongo with an iPhone 5s in my tests took a matter of seconds, as the speaker is ready to pair when powered up, and the speaker auto-pairs whenever you power it up again. Divoom estimates the Ongo has a battery life of a modest 3-4 hours, but your results will vary depending on how loudly you playback your music.
On tracks with serious sub-bass content, like The Knife’s “Silent Shout,” the Ongo delivers laudable bass response for its size. While the speaker doesn’t get super-loud, it also avoids distortion on this track, even at top volumes. This is a rare feat in this price range, though the Ongo does sound as if it’s teetering on the edge of distortion, and the speaker vibrates wildly when playing this song at top levels. Regardless, it’s more bass than most people would expect out of a $60 speaker, even if most of the low end is implied rather than actually delivered.
