I Just Tried the World’s Thinnest Bluetooth Speaker

LAS VEGAS – There are plenty of portable Bluetooth speakers, but how many of them can you actually stuff into your pocket? That’s the idea behind Lenovo’s 700 Ultraportable Bluetooth Speaker, a slim and impressively loud music-maker that Lenovo says will be the world’s thinnest when it launches in March for $149.

I was immediately struck by just how slim Lenovo’s new speaker is — at just 11 millimeters thin and just a few inches wide, it has the same general footprint as a modern smartphone, and is just as easily to slip into your pocket.

I’m a fan of the speaker’s understated, all-aluminum design, which sports a large speaker grille and touch-capacitive controls on the front, a rubber base on the bottom for laying the speaker flat, and a USB-C port on the edge that Lenovo says supports 2-hour fast-charging.

Despite its small frame, this thing gets loud. The 700 Ultraportable filled a small room with the pop-rock sounds of Breaker’s “All My Life,” and while I would have liked to hear the bass a little better, I was impressed by the overall clarity and volume.
