What is the best Bluetooth speaker Bose Soundlink Revole, UE Boom 2 or a Fugoo Sport. I want a good Bluetooth speaker and these are the three that come up the most on most reviews.

A:

They all have their pros, and cons, so it ultimately boils down to what is right for you, and your needs.

The UE Boom is a great choice if you want a bluetooth speaker with an exceptional battery life (up to 15 hours). It features two 1.5 inch full range drivers, has a power output of 3 watts, and is IPX4 splash proof. This is not a speaker if you seek to go to loud volumes, as it only offers a 3 watt output, but definitely a great speaker if you want a relaxing volume level, and a quality durable build.


You will find the Bose SoundLink Revolve is IPX4 water resistant (splash proof), has a durable design, a 12 hour battery life, and dual passive radiators. This speaker can reach louder volumes and is a nice choice if you want something that's built to last The exact watt output is unknown because bose tend to never list the watt output (and thus they cannot be exactly compared), but it's a safe bet it will not disappoint in terms of volume and clarity, as this is what the brand is known for.

The Fugoo Go Anywhere Speaker (Fugoo Sport) is very affordable in comparison. It has an IP67 water resistant rating (meaning that it can be submerged). a 12 watt output, a 10 hour battery life (40 hours at half volume), and dual-full range drivers, along with dual bass radiators. This is an ideal choice if you wish to save some money, but still want a decent power output. It’s compact, easy to carry around, and reaches about 95 decibels. However, note that at high volumes the Fugoo speaker tends to distort the sound and will not sound as clear.

I am more of a bassy songs listener , i loved the design of marshall But looking at the price difference and extra feature of being as a powerbank by xtreme is very cool. which one should I buy
Related: JBL Xtreme, Marshall Kilburn, Portable Bluetooth Speakers | Submitted by anonymous 41 days ago
A:

Both speakers have exceptional sound quality, however you’ll find that the Marshall Kilburn is able to go louder. It has a 70 watt power output in comparison to the JBL Xtreme’s 40 watts. That does not mean the JBL Xtreme can’t get very loud, it just means the Marshall can probably handle higher volume levels. That being said, the JBL certainly has a lot more features than the marshal, such as its power bank feature, water resistance, and its hands-free speakerphone functionality.


So, it’s really about what’s more important to you. Both have subwoofers, and decent drivers. The xtreme has 2 subwoofers, but they’re smaller than the kilburns 4 inch woofer. The xtreme is definitely a good choice when it comes to money value, and what you’re getting out of it. If you plan to be out, and on the go with your speaker then I believe the xtreme would be the better choice. If you want something strictly for home use then I would suggest the Marshall Kilburn.

Which is having more performance
Related: SoundBot SB571, JBL Flip 3, Portable Bluetooth Speakers | Submitted by Joobin 44 days ago
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.

Which of these two has clearer sound at high volumes, especially when listening to pop, hip hop, and dancehall?
Related: VAVA Voom 21, Anker SoundCore, Portable Bluetooth Speakers | Submitted by Gilda 47 days ago
A:

I believe you’ll find that the VAVA Voom 21 will have better sound quality at higher volumes. It has a 20 watt output, 2 drivers, and a subwoofer. The Anker SoundCore is also a great bluetooth speaker, but its power output is significantly lower. It has a 6 watt output, dual high-performance 3 watt speakers, and a subwoofer. This means you’ll see higher decibel levels at maximum volume on the VAVA Voom 21’s side, not to mention cleaner sound quality. The downside is that the vavavoom 21 will cost more than twice what the Anker SoundCore does.

Anyone recommend a good speaker under $100 ?
Related: Anker A3143, Beats Pill+, Portable Bluetooth Speakers | Submitted by Kevin 59 days ago
A:

The VAVA Voom 21 would be a great choice to consider. It meets your price range, and has an outstanding sound quality. This speaker features two passive radiators, a 10W subwoofer, and has a 20W power output. The downside to this speaker is that it’s not an ideal choice if you plan to be around water in any sort of fashion because it has no water resistance.


The Cambridge OontZ Angle 3 Plus would be another great bluetooth speaker to take into consideration. It has an impressive 1 day 6 hour battery life, has two precision neodymium drivers, a bass radiator, and a power output of 10 watts. This would be a great choice for pool parties because it has IPX5 water resistance (protection from small water jets), but don’t put it inside the pool, it is not built for that.


The two speakers you listed are decent as well. The Anker A3143 is very affordable considering it has a 20W output, and has a decent battery life of 10 hours. This bluetooth speaker is equipped with dual 10W drivers, and 2 passive subwoofers. Its downside is that it has no water resistance, nor does it have NFC capability (near field communication).


The Beats Pill+ is another great choice that you listed. It has a cool design, a 12 hour battery life, and a 12W output. Its volume may not go as loud as the others mentioned, but it has a lot of features, such as being able to connect to other speakers, and has hands-free functionality.
