Q: Which is having more performance
A: It ultimately depends on what type of performance you’re aiming for. Are you looking for something with better bass? Or perhaps something that has a lot of features? The JBL Flip 3 is a great choice if you want something that has a well-rounded assortment of features, and a larger scale of use. It's significantly more expensive than the soundbot, but with fair reason. It has dual 1.57in transducers, with a 16 watt power output. It has IPX4 water resistance (making it splash-proof, and a great pool party option), a 10 hour battery life, and a very durable design. It has the option to connect to other speakers, and multiple devices. The SoundBot SB571 has a well-rounded sound quality. It has two 40mm premium drivers, and a passive subwoofer, with a 12 watt power output. The battery life on it is slightly better than the JBL Flip 3 , but this is not an ideal device if you plan to take it to areas where it may get wet because it has no water resistance. It lacks a few of the other features the JBL Flip 3 offers, but you may find that the SoundBot SB571 ’s sound quality (especially its bass) will sound exceptional, and can easily match if not exceed the jbl’s sound at a much lower cost.
Q: I want a bluetooth speaker which has awesome bass.I have a budget of 2000 INR
Q: Which is the best Bluetooth speaker in the market?
A: It really depends on what sort of specs you like. The most popular curerntly is the JBL Pulse 3 , and with good reason. It has three 40mm transducers, and a fantastic 20W output. I personally have one, and am extremely pleased with its performance. Between the two you want to compare, the JBL Flip 3 , and Anker SoundCore , it also depends. The JBL Flip 3 has a much larger power output, with dual 1.57in transducers, along with being water resistant. The Anker SoundCore on the other hand has a great bass quality. It has a 6 watt output, and includes a subwoofer. If you’re looking for something with raw power, I would say the JBL Pulse 3 , or JBL Flip 3 . For something a little simpler, less weight, and a long battery life (24 hours, twice that of the others mentioned), then the Anker SoundCore would be the ideal purchase.
Q: Looking for a portable speaker for an Ipod. any recommendations?
A: It of course depends on your price range, and technical preference. Between the two you have chosen to compare, one is significantly cheaper than the other. The Cambridge Oontz Angle 3 has a great sound quality, yet keeping a realistic, and economic approach to their pricing. It has a 10W output with two neodymium driver, and a bass radiator. The JBL Flip 3 is a bit more expensive, but also has more power than the Cambridge Oontz Angle 3 . It has a 16W output with dual 1.57in transducers, giving it a bit more edge over than cambridge, while only having about 2 hours less of battery life to the cambridge. If I am to personally recommend a portable speaker for the ipod I would go with the UE Boom 2 . I personally use it. It has a powerful battery life that will give you continuous music for 15 hours, is water resistant, and delivers quality sound for a small speaker (maximum sound level of 90 dBA).
Q: Hi, Is there any speaker that could compare to the bose mini soundlink in sound quality? Something cheaper? I planned to buy the bose, but then began to wonder whether it is really all too much about the name. Thanks d
A: It depends on what sort of stuff you plan to get from it. If you want something that can get really loud then the Bose SoundLink Mini II would indeed be a great choice. It has an impressive 50 watt output, so you can bet that it will rock the house. On the other hand, the JBL Flip 3 , and Anker SoundCore are great choices if you plan to have a more personal use out of it, and not try to have huge parties with it. The JBL Flip 3 only has an output power of 16 watts, and Anker SoundCore has about 6 watts. They all have their good points, so the best thing to do is just think about what you imagine to get out of the device, then base your decision accordingly to your needs. The JBL Flip 3 , and Anker SoundCore are much cheaper than the Bose SoundLink Mini II , but won’t deliver the same sound quality when you go to high decibel levels.

Water Resistance

Speakers range from not being able to handle even a drop of water to being able to be fully submerged in water for several minutes. Do you plan to take your speaker outside? To the beach? To the pool? In the shower? Then you definitely need to verify the level of water resistance before purchasing. You can tell the water resistance by the IP rating—the higher the rating, the more resistant the speaker is to the elements. For reference, the first digit refers to dust protection and the second digit refers to water protection. It reads as: IP68. Anything higher than IP66 will be dust- and splash-proof, meaning it can handle some contact with water, but cannot be fully submerged or soaked.

Battery

Battery life for Bluetooth speakers is measured in milliampere hours (mAh). Manufacturers will report the battery life of a speaker in the average number of hours it takes to empty from a full charge. Keep in mind this number is based on medium levels of usage. If you play the speaker on full volume, it will drain the battery faster. Some specialty features like using the speaker to charge your phone or casting an LED light show will also drain the battery faster. The manufacturer reported number is just an estimate, and may be slightly different based on your usage.

It’s also important to consider is the type of battery. Rechargeable lithium-ion (LI-ion) batters are ideal, but some speakers only take standard or rechargeable AA/AAA/C/D batteries. You may even find Bluetooth speakers that recharge via solar power—great for outdoor use!
