The latest speaker offering by boAt is this boAt Stone 1200 model , which is quite big 14W speaker. It comes in a big package with celebrity branding (Karthik Aryan) picture on box. boAt claims a 9 hour playback time, 7 hour with RGB in use.

Well the speaker is quite big , so are the buttons. It has ports for USB , AUX and DC 5V port for charging. As soon as you turn it on , the RGB lights are switched on with the automated voice.
Talking abut the sound quality , it is good with deep bass. But base is mostly noticeable if the sound is above 50%. It does have an inbuilt mic , for taking calls.
One more unique feature is the button given for triggering the voice assistant , supporting both Siri and Google. It also has built in TWS (True Wireless Stereo) , which means that you can connect two of these speakers and transmit left and right channel separately. This is a good feature to have for larger rooms , or just to have more powerful sound experience.
There is LED battery life indicator on body , which don’t see in other speakers normally. This feature will be quite helpful in checking the battery level , even without connecting to smartphone.

The vocals, treble and bass do not disappoint , the speaker is suited to have in house parties.
