The market is filled with a range of air purifier brands but sadly the products don’t differ much. By and large, they all are the same with small and almost ignorable features that set them apart.
But one brand has surely chosen a different way to give an air purifier a new purpose. It is not necessary that I have to love what they are doing but at least I can consider it a silver lining in the cloud. Winix is trying to break through the air purifier niche by introducing its QS air purifier with Bluetooth speaker.
So what’s the “innovation” in it, you might ask! Well, this air purifier features a speaker and a Bluetooth one. How’s that for a change!
No doubt, Winix is thinking out of the box; but does the idea really work, let me answer this by reviewing it.
Read on to find out the answer in the following sections!
Winix started back in 1973 in Korea and it became a recognized air purifier brand in no time. Their air purifiers actually delivered what they claim. The Winix QS air purifier with Bluetooth speaker is no different but it’s more! This air purifier comes with Bluetooth Speakers. So you are not only getting the air near your filtered but you also get to hear your favorite tunes.
This idea is truly innovative when you think about it. Just turn the air purifier on and also listen to music at the same time. The 2×8-watt speaker is also from JBL so the sound quality is going to be good.
Do you think this product is tilted more towards the audiophiles and not the clean air breathers?
How about these features. It features a 4-stage filtration system and covers an area of 320 sq. ft. This HEPA filtration system is able to capture 99.97% of the pollutants in the air as well as allergens and pet dander that can be as small as 0.3 microns. It has a carbon filter that comes with deodorization coating for capturing different household odors caused by cooking, smoking, etc.
Design & Build
The Winix QS air purifier with Bluetooth speaker has a true tower design and it looks slightly different as compared to the previous models from the brand that looked solid at a glance. With a tower design, the fan that Winix QS air purifier with Bluetooth speaker has is small in size but the design concept keeps the air flow more consistent.
The height of this air purifier is 29.5 inches and it is best for a room that is 320 sq. ft. in size. So when I talk about the air purification system that it has, there is nothing out of the extraordinary but it does get the job done.
Here is how Winix QS differentiates from the rest of the pack; it comes with a Bluetooth speaker. I and my friends really liked the sound that came out of these JBL speakers. For those of you who don’t know, JBL is a top-notch audio equipment brand, standing strong in the market since 1946.
With that being said, even though the air purification system in this air purifier with Bluetooth speaker is not the beacon of innovation and creativity but it also doesn’t tradeoff air filtration performance with the speaker sound. The Winix QS features a concept of 360-degree air intake. This concept is not very common among other brands.
This system is only functional if the air purifier with Bluetooth speaker comes with an advanced fan construction. Even with a weak fan, the Winix QS is able to achieve quality air purification because the fan only focuses on moving the airflow. Its grille has a small shape, which means that the airflow will become even better as the fan circulates large amounts. Even with the speakers, the air purifier only ways around 18 lbs!
Winix QS – The Review
The Winix QS is a good quality air purifier that also allows you to listen to your favorite music. It comes with Bluetooth speakers from JBL. The air purifier with Bluetooth speaker is able to cover an area of 320 sq. ft. and has a tower design that contributes significantly to generating quality airflow despite a weak fan.

Plasma wave technology
This technology attacks the allergens and pollutants at their molecular level. For this reason, it works very well to neutralize chemical vapors, bacteria, viruses, gases, and odors in the air and doesn’t harm the ozone.
A carbon filter with deodorization coating
This carbon filter has a deodorization coating that can work against any of those household odors including cooking and smoke. Your area will stay aromatic for a long time and you will feel fresh and healthy.
I specifically tried this air purifier with Bluetooth speaker in the kitchen when I was preparing a Chinese dish with all the windows closed to see if this really works and I was so happy that it did.
2×8-watt JBL speakers
And while I was doing the cooking I also tried out the speakers on this thing. I was so impressed with the audio quality and the seamless connectivity that this air purifier with Bluetooth speaker had with my smartphone. So I decided that this air purifier is going to be my trusty sidekick in the kitchen whenever I cook something.
The four-stage filtration system in this air purifier with Bluetooth speaker has a pre-filter that captures any large contaminants. The second layer of filter is HEPA and it can capture 99.97% of microns in the air that can be as small as 0.3 microns. The next filtration layer has activated carbon and it can get rid of any household odors in no time.
And the fourth and final layer is the Plasma Wave ionizer that can reduce any remaining o the pollutants. It truly does what it claims when it comes to air purification. But there is a Bluetooth speaker that you will find as well not the best sound quality but it is nice to have some background music while your air is cleaning.
Should you buy it?
If you are looking for a good quality air purifier, you should definitely buy this one. The Bluetooth speaker from JBL is a nice touch and you can connect your phone with it to hear your favorite songs while breathing clean and fresh air.
All in all, this air purifier with Bluetooth speaker is a truly innovative product that can filter the air that you breathe and can also sing you some songs. It has good area coverage and comes with a very powerful filtration system that can eradicate germs and allergens at a very minute level.
