The Infinity Clubz 250 has a really solid build, having a fabric-like exterior and a rubber surface for its top and base. On the top you will find the controls which include play/pause, volume up/down, and the power button. On the bottom, there’s a flap that will reveal the 3.5mm audio jack and the microUSB port for charging.
The speaker itself is relatively small, but the audio is really big (more on that later). It feels nice in the hands, and it isn’t too heavy so it can easily be stored into any bag, backpack, or even handbag. The LED within the power button is a nice touch, so I’ll know when it’s powered up.
The Infinity Clubz 250 Bluetooth speaker is easy to setup. Just touch and hold the power button, and after 2 seconds it will turn on with a voice prompt to connect to your smartphone. There is no Google Fast Pair or companion app, so you’ll have to “traditionally” connect it to your phone via the Bluetooth settings page.
The whole pairing process was smooth, I could get connected and start playing music in under a minute. What I like about the speaker is that there are sound prompts to let you know when the volume is at the lowest or loudest. I also like that the speaker is IPX7 waterproof, so you don’t have to worry about bringing this to the pool for a pool party.
Another thing I really like about the Infinity Clubz 250 is that is compatible with your smartphone’s personal assistant. That means Apple’s Siri and Google Assistant is present on the speaker. So, if your phone is stored away in your bag, you can still access it through your personal assistant. All you have to do to access it is to press the power button twice.
What I didn’t like was that the Infinity Clubz 250 didn’t use a newer Bluetooth 5.0 standard, and it still used a microUSB connection for charging. It’s still on Bluetooth 4.2 and sometimes (albeit rarely), i do experience some audio skipping. Also, a USB Type-C connection would have been better at faster charging the internal 2,500mAh battery too.
Another thing Infinity could have included with the package is a protective pouch for the speaker. I’d hate to see the fabric grille or rubber base get scuffed by wear and tear, so a pouch would’ve been nice. That being said, you can just use any pouch you have at home, as long as it fits the speaker.

There are two 45mm drivers within the speaker, each of them capable of outputting 7.5W of power, which totals at 15W. And 15W is a lot of power for a Bluetooth speaker of this size. That goes along with how big the audio can get, as the Infinity Clubz 250 is really loud. Even at 60%, I’m already worried about getting a noise complaint from the neighbours. But practically, you’re not going to go loud indoors anyway, unless you’re in an open space – pool party, gatherings etc.
As for the audio, apart from the volume, the Infinity Clubz 250 has really great mids and lows. It’s a bass heavy speaker, so headbangers and ravers would love this little beast. For its highs, treble is decent at best. This isn’t a speaker you’d listen to instrumentals or acoustics with. This effectively makes the Infinity Clubz 250 a party speaker with ultra portability.
It also has dual equalizers, where you can enjoy boosted bass just by pressing the up and down volume buttons simultaneously (as if the bass wasn’t strong enough already).
Additionally, the Infinity Clubz 250 can also act as a speakerphone. So if you have an incoming call, just answer the call right from the speaker. It sounds great, but just make sure it’s not your girlfriend/wife calling to scold you about the groceries you forgot to buy.
Continuously playing music at 50% volume, I could get about 9 hours and 43 minutes with the Infinity Clubz 250 before it needed recharging. Charging the speaker from zero to full takes about 3 hour and 40 minutes. This is rather slow, but considering it can get you through a full day, it can always be charged overnight to get ready for the next day or the next time you use it.
For RM229, the Infinity Clubz 250 Bluetooth speaker is a little pricey, if you compare it with the other Bluetooth speakers in the market. But what you’re getting is great sound inspired by Harman Kardon, and great bass that is worthy of any party you’re attending. All that sound is also encased in an IPX7 waterproof body that is great to hold and easy to keep.
