The Twist is the first in a new range of accessories for tablets and smartphones and offers wireless Bluetooth connection along with its eye-catching design.

The lightweight 24 x 6.5 x 6cm casing has a tactile matte black finish and contains a pair of 38mm full-range drivers as well as a passive bass radiator to boost the sound beyond The Twist’s modest dimensions. Control is via a circular, illuminated, top-mounted panel while pairing it with a Bluetooth-compatible device like your iPad, iPhone, Android device or PC is as easy as switching it on. When paired with a smartphone, a built-in noise-cancelling microphone allows the Twist to operate as a hands-free speakerphone for taking and making calls.

The Twistʼs built-in battery is charged via the supplied USB cable, each charge providing around five hours of use. In addition to Bluetooth connectivity, music sources may be connected via a 3.5mm jack – a cable’s supplied.

Other products set to arrive from i-box in the coming months include headphones, digital cables and companion portable speakers; all in i-box black and orange livery.

The i-box The Twist is on sale now with a five-year warranty for £70.
