Enjoy amazing sound quality when watching movies or listening to music with the new breed of portable speaker projectors! With projectors rapidly progressing in the visual department they have now started improving on the sound with high quality speakers being introduced into their models.
The key differentiator with these new portable projectors is that they are much more capable of handling bass. This is really evident as soon as you pick up the projector, they feel really solid but not ultimately weighty so that they are still ultra portable.
Prices for these projectors start at £199.

What Mobile (https://new.whatmobile.net/review-qumi-z1v-projector):
“First impressions are the Z1V is a fantastic bit of tech that provides a decent sounding speaker that is lightweight but also provides very good quality images or video footage when projected. I also found it very useful that I could use it plugged in or wireless if I wanted to use it outside.”
“…looks great a grey fabric cloth wrapped around makes look smart.”
“…great for viewing pictures as well as video. The multimedia player in this device really gives you an extension to any mobile device you might have.”
“So overall, it’s a great device that allows you to use USB-C, Micro SD slot and HDMI ports for you to use any of your devices to showcase your video, audio or pictures.”
“What makes this even better is you get up to 30,000 hours via the LED light source meaning you can use this device time and time again. Another benefit of using this projector is how easy it is to use.”
“…it’s a great product so if you invest in this it will continue to entertain over and over again. Now what I personally loved this device for was to streaming the recent Cricket World Cup outside for the whole family to watch outside in my garden.”
