About this deal

Sure, none of these will get as loud as the Exos-9, but you’ll have to really prioritize volume above all else with this speaker. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. This isn’t present in the Exos 9, which, while a little disappointing, is also understandable given the design approach of the speaker, which focuses on a cleaner design. Fat Llama is a peer-to-peer rental platform — we connect people who need stuff with people who have stuff.

You will not find a portable Bluetooth speaker with such clarity and contrast between the high - mids - and lows.Having two midrange drivers also provides something of a wide, space-y sound, but it won’t be fully stereo, unless you will be standing very far from the speaker, and somehow right in front of it, leaving enough space for a bit of a soundstage to shape up. The Exos-9 speaker housing is made of plastic, which doesn’t instill much confidence if accidentally dropped—and I didn’t want to test it.

Since the Exos-9 is the product that pulled Aiwa from the ashes, maybe they should have named it “The Phoenix” instead. The main comparison speakers or setups for EXOS 9 are Edifier S1000DB, Edifier E25 Luna, and Yamaha WX021 Music Cast 20. When it comes to the design of the Aiwa Exos 9, we haven’t come across anything quite like it before. For those that want music to be more than background noise, for those who want their music to have the power to entertain. The housing is entirely made out of a High Quality ABS Plastic, with polyfill stuffing inside to increase the box volume.Bass offers incredible impact and extends deep, though it sounds a bit uncontrolled at loud volumes. With that out of the way the "new" Aiwa may be far from what the Aiwa we all knew was (at least in terms of size and available products) but if they continue to design, manufacture and release products like the EXOS-9 their future seems quite bright.

The sound profile on the Exos 9 is tuned very much towards a bass-dominant profile, which is great for parties and typical social gatherings, but isn’t the best when you’re just looking to relax with a drink and enjoy some music. I played different genre’s of music on the Exos-9, from 80s new wave, 60s psychedelia and modern over-processed music to bass-monster songs (for testing bass of course), folk and classical. For the best sound comparison, we recommend selecting your brand and model of headphones in the right-hand column, or if your headphones aren't listed, you can rent one of our Listening Kits. Keep it plugged in at home or enjoy up to 9 HOURS of incredible unplugged sound with the included quick-swap Lithium-ion battery pack.is not exactly easy to carry around with one hand) the almost entirely plastic enclosure doesn’t feel very robust and thus hurts the overall image of the product.
