Packaging and Contents
The packaging for the Groovy Duo is very colorful with its product image centered in the middle with a frequency plot and black background. Also in the top corner it claims to be a mini home theater, stereo surround speaker, portability, battery life and the dynamic pairing. Also on the front is a catch phrase “Music where you want it to be”, I must say it is a great catch phrase for the Groovy Duo.
The sides of the packaging tell you a little information about the product along with general specs and what is included with the Groovy Duo speakers.
On the rear of the box is a list of features in several different languages. The sides of the packaging also list the product description and list of contents with a picture of one Groovy Duo speakers on each of the box ends completing the Groovy Duo as a pair, which is symbolic of the product.
Once opening the box you find the pair of Groovy Duo speakers, a nifty little carrying bag for taking them with you on the go and a manual. Also included in the box are two rather unusual cables, the first being a 2.5mm audio jack speaker cable that goes from 1 to 2 allowing you to plug into both speakers from your smart phone or tablet. Finally the last cable goes from 1 USB to two micro-USB ends that allows the user to rapid charge the internal 9 hour battery in 3 hours for both Groovy Duo speakers. Additionally there is a LUXA2 Software package for both android and IOS that can be downloaded to your devices.
