I just bought the sonic boom, and the hard wired connections do not work to my piano keyboard. I'm using the standard cable I use to any other speaker and I get nothing. When I use the smaller aux cable, I get just a clicking sound. Is there something else I need to configure?

How do I charge this item? I can't find the charger - is it sold separately?
Related: Nubwo A2 Pro, Portable Bluetooth Speakers | Submitted by anonymous 363 days ago
A: Every USB charger will do the job

Using the provided USB cable, connect it to a common USB chargeur (like the one from your phone) or to a USB port on your computer. The first option is the best choice and I would recommend a 1 A charger, because the battery is huge and takes time to fill.

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.
Related: UE Boom, Bose SoundLink Revolve, Portable Bluetooth Speakers | Submitted by anonymous 532 days ago
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: Marshall Kilburn, JBL Xtreme, Portable Bluetooth Speakers | Submitted by anonymous 553 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: JBL Flip 3, SoundBot SB571, Portable Bluetooth Speakers | Submitted by Joobin 555 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 559 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: Beats Pill+, Anker A3143, Portable Bluetooth Speakers | Submitted by Kevin 571 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.

Whats the difference between the jbl flip 3 and jbl flip 4?
Related: JBL Flip 4, Portable Bluetooth Speakers | Submitted by Chris 581 days ago
A:

Although they both are 16 watt speakers, they have some significant differences. The JBL Flip 4 is IPX7 water resistant (up to 1 meter of immersion), has a 12 hour battery, connects to multiple devices, and two 40mm transducers. The downside is it has no near field communication (NFC), nor does it provide fm radio.


The JBL Flip 3 is IPX4 water resistant (splash proof), has a 10 hour battery life, and dual 1.57in transducers, and is extremely lightweight ( 12 ounces vs. the flip 4's 1.1 lbs). Unlike the flip 4, the JBL Flip 3 offers fm radio, has near field communication capability, and the ability to connect to other speakers.


So the JBL Flip 4 would be a better choice for high water resistance needs, such as pool parties, or if you simply want a longer battery life. The JBL Flip 3 is a smarter choice if you want a speaker that is lightweight, has NFC capability, and FM radio.

compare the two speakers sound quality
Related: UE Megaboom, Bose SoundLink Color, Portable Bluetooth Speakers | Submitted by Karen 582 days ago
A:

They both have fairly decent sound quality for their size, and both reach over 90 decibels. 


The Bose SoundLink Color has a bigger frequency range (the larger the range, the better the speaker will be at reproducing the audio being played), but does not come equipped with a passive radiator, thus lacks when bass is taken into higher consideration.


In the case of the UE Megaboom, it has two full range drivers, and a passive radiator, which gives it an advantage when it comes to bass, along with having an amplifier integrated within the device. So, if you're looking to go with sound quality that takes bass into higher consideration then the UE Megaboom would be a better choice.

I’m looking for a speaker loud enough to be played in the street(I’m a vendor and need the music to be loud)
I did have beats pill Plus and liked that even on max volume it worked for at least 10 hours. And the sound quality with the bass was good. I had UE boom , the sound was good as well, but the battery lasted 3 hours max on high levels of sound.
Now I’m looking for some speaker maybe not that expensive, but loud and with long battery life (all day)
Wireless connection is a must as well
Related: Beats Pill+, Anker SoundCore, Portable Bluetooth Speakers | Submitted by Bogdan 584 days ago
A:

The Anker SoundCore would certainly be a great choice in terms of price, and battery. The downside to this particular speaker is that it's meant more for a personal type of use, rather than using it as a street vendor. Even though it has great sound quality, the sound begins to distort at max volumes because it only has a power output of 6 watts.


A fairly good option would be the JBL Charge 3, although it's more expensive than the Anker SoundCore. It has a battery life of up to 20 hours, and the speaker can even act as a charger for your other devices. It can also get fairly loud having a 20 watt output. It features two 50mm transducers, and is IPX7 water resistant (useful for those rainy days while vending).

is there a problem with the studio 4 being plugged in at all time with unit turned on/ Want to place it on a high shelf. ? is there a way to remotely power the unit on and off?
A:

If you have it plugged in all the time, the issue will be with the battery eventually. Having rechargeable batteries being charged constantly will cause it to lose its ability to hold a long charge over time. So, in terms of will it ruin the machine, no, but it will definitely wear your battery out after a while, and the moment you decide to bring it along with you to other places, you may find that you will have to constantly recharge it.


As for if there is a way to remotely power the unit on and off, the answer would be no. This bluetooth speaker to does feature remote/app control.

Oontz angle 3 ultra or ue boom 2? (for a College student in a dorm hall)
Related: UE Boom 2, Cambridge Oontz Angle 3, Portable Bluetooth Speakers | Submitted by Angela 597 days ago
A:

They are both pretty good. The Cambridge OontZ Angle 3 Plus has great quality sound, at a very low price. Its IPX5 water resistant (protection from small water jets) has features a mid-range driver, a passive radiator, and a tweeter driver. It can run for up to 8 hours and has 10 watts of power output. Its downside is that it has no near field communication (NFC).


The UE Boom 2 has a fairly loud maximum volume and great sound quality, but the quality will diminish when you actually attempt to hit maximum volumes. It has 15 hours of battery life, has two full-range drivers and is IPX7 water resistant (up to 1 meter of immersion), and has NFC capability.


So, I would probably go with the UE Boom 2 if you plan to take it to pool parties, want something that can safely go underwater, and want something with a long lasting battery. If you plan to keep it strictly in your dorm room, want a  bluetooth speaker at a much lower price, but still preserving quality sound, and still receiving some water resistance, then the Cambridge OontZ Angle 3 Plus would be a fair choice.

Brokstone Big Blue party vs Marshall kilburn, Whats speaker to buy?
Related: Brookstone Big Blue Party, Marshall Kilburn, Portable Bluetooth Speakers | Submitted by Rafail 600 days ago
A:

It really depends on what sort of details you're looking to get out of the speaker. They both have their strong, and weak points. Are you aiming for pool parties, or perhaps just simple home use?

 

The Brookstone Big Blue Party is 12 pounds, IPX4 water resistant (splash proof), has 4.5 hours of battery life, is NFC capable, and has 72 watts of power output. It features 4 speaker drivers, a subwoofer, and passive radiator. The downside to this speaker is that it's a bit heavy, and its battery life is rather short.

 

The Marshall Kilburn weighs 6.6 pounds, is durable, has 20 hours of battery life, and a power output of 70 watts. It features 3/4 dome tweeters, and one 4 inch subwoofer. This speakers downside is that it has no water resistance, and does not have near field communication (NFC).

 

All in all, the  Brookstone Big Blue Party would be a good choice if you're looking for a speaker that’s water resistant for pool parties, and the Marshall Kilburn would be a wise choice if you're looking for something that is lightweight, and has a long lasting battery.

I would really like something that will produce decent atmos quality without going above 300.00
Related: UE Megaboom, Harman Kardon Onyx Studio, Portable Bluetooth Speakers | Submitted by Matthew 601 days ago
A:

For atmos quality you would need speakers with dolby 5.1, or 7.1, and an atmos receiver. This sort of sound quality cannot be achieved with simply using bluetooth speakers. Most of the atmos receivers on market are under 500 dollars, but well over 300. You may find some traditional looking (non bluetooth) speakers that are atmos compatible under that price. Speakers such as that Onkyo SKH-410 may meet your atmos needs, but these are not bluetooth speakers, just regular atmos-enabled bookshelf-sized type of speakers. Using certain bluetooth speakers like the Bose SoundLink Revolve may give you a surround sound sort of feeling, but it won't be atmos quality. The two bluetooth speakers you listed( UE Megaboom, and Harman Kardon Onyx Studio ) do not have atmos capability, but can connect to other speakers to give a mild surround sort of sound. So if a simple surround sound is what you meant by atmos quality, then the two you listed would work fine connecting to other speakers. That being said in the process of buying multiple bluetooth speakers to achieve anything close to atmos, you would exceed 300 dollars.

I would like to get best Bluetooth speaker under 50 dollars.
Related: Portable Bluetooth Speakers | Submitted by Santhanam 602 days ago
A:

The Cambridge OontZ Angle 3 Plus would be a fine choice. It's under 50 dollars as you require, and also has very decent sound quality. It's very lightweight, and is IPX5 water resistant. The battery life on it is outstanding, lasting up to 1 day, and 6 hours long. It features 2 precision neodymium drivers, a bass radiator, and has a power output of 10 watts. The downside is that it's not the most powerful bluetooth speaker you'll see, but you won't find many watts at this price range to begin with. It also has no NFC ( near field communication), which is typically included by higher end bluetooth speakers.

I'm looking at these 3 speakers. I was wondering which one has the best sound quality
A:

The Altec Lansing LifeJacket is designed more for its water resistance. It can float on water, and is very durable, but it’s rather huge and heavy. It has two subwoofers, two neodymium woofers, two tweeters, and two passive radiators. Unfortunately even with that many drivers you may find some issues with its sound quality once you pass half of its maximum volume level. The digital signal processing used by the Altec Lansing LifeJacket  is not very subtle. It tries to prevent distortion upon reaching high volume levels by limiting the dynamic peaks of louder sections within the tracks, particularly tracks with lots of bass. This causes the sound to dip in volume when things are loud, and rise drastically during quiet moments. The JBL Charge 3 has a more “all around” sort of quality to it because its easy to carry around, water resistant, and charges other devices. It has two 50 mm transducers, and has a power output of 20 watts. Its sound quality is actually quite impressive, and you wont find the same sort of volume dips with this device. The Anker SoundCore is overall a much less powerful device, but also small, lightweight, and economical. It has dual high-performance 3W drivers, and a power output of 6W. Unfortunately, it has absolutely no water resistance. All in all, I would say when it comes to sound quality, you may find the JBL Charge 3 to have the richer, higher quality sound.

Related: SoundBot SB571, SoundBot SB520, Portable Bluetooth Speakers | Submitted by Dhiraj 638 days ago
A:

When it comes to bass you’ll find better quality in the  SoundBot SB520 because it has two 50mm premium drivers, as opposed to the two 40mm premium drivers the  SoundBot SB571 has. That being said, the SB520 has a lower frequency, and watt output. The SB571 has 12 watts, with a frequency range of 2.4-2.48GHz, while the SB520 has 10 watts, with a frequency range of 60HZ-18KHZ. So the SB571 can get louder, but the SB520 has bigger drivers for the bass. The SB520 will be more than sufficiently loud for a drawing room.

A:

The JBL go has a smaller design than the SoundBot SB571. So it really depends what you are looking for. The sb571 has an output power of 12 watts, and two 40mm premium drivers. That being said, the JBL go weighs nearly half of what the sb571 does, but has an output power of 3.0 watts, along with one 40mm transducer. So if a smaller design and portability is what you seek then I would choose JBL go, but if you want overall louder sound, and more power output, then the sb571 would be the right choice for you.

A:

It really depends on what you’re looking for in a Bluetooth speaker. The Cambridge Oontz Angle 3 is a much lighter and portable speaker, has two precision neodymium drivers, and bass radiator (this enhances the bass output). It has 10 watts of power output, and is water resistant with an IPX5 rating (protection from small water jets). On the other hand the JBL Flip 4 has 16 watts, with two 40mm transducers, is very durable, weighs about 1.1 pounds, and is also waterproof, but with an IPX7 rating (this allows for up to 1 meter of immersion). For a smaller, powerful design the OontZ Angle 3 bluetooth speaker is a good choice. For a heavy duty power output, and resilient design the JBL Flip 4 would be the better option.

Which is the best Bluetooth speaker in the market?
Related: JBL Flip 3, Anker SoundCore, Portable Bluetooth Speakers | Submitted by Nirmalya 684 days ago
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.

Related: JBL Flip 3, Cambridge Oontz Angle 3, Portable Bluetooth Speakers | Submitted by Katherine 691 days ago
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).

what is the best bluetooth speaker i can buy for any type of occasion and weather
Related: UE Boom 2, JBL Charge 3, VAVA Voom 21, Portable Bluetooth Speakers | Submitted by Kathleen 693 days ago
A:

     It really depends on the occasion, and what needs you require to be met. Unfortunately no one single Bluetooth speaker will be the best for all scenarios. Let’s analyze the three you have chosen to compare.

    The UE Boom 2 is a fairly popular choice. Some of its Pros are that it has two full range drivers, and two passive radiators. It is IPX7 water resistant (immersion up to 1m), has a rugged design which helps with scrapes, and falls, along with having 15 hours of battery life.A few cons to this speaker is the battery may be unable to hold a charge when used regularly, and it does not produce as much bass as similarly sized speakers typically do.

     The JBL Charge 3 is another neat choice. This speaker has the cool feature of allowing you to charge other devices directly from the speaker through USB with its 6000maH power bank. It has a rugged design, which gives it durability. It is dust-proof, has an impressive 20 hours of battery life, has two 50mm transducers, is 20 watts, and also IPX7 water resistant. A few negative points to this speaker are that there have been some reports of problems with a scratching noise at some point, and has a few issues with sound drops. Overall a great machine though.

     The VAVA Voom 21 is another popular choice. It possesses a rugged design that gives it its durability, has a 10 hour battery life, contains a power bank, two 5W drivers, two passive radiators, and a 10W subwoofer, and it all runs a total power output of 20W. A few cons to this particular device is the nfc pairing seems to have issues, and it seems to jump from audible to mute at times. All in all, a powerful speaker with a good design.

     All that being said, it truly does depends on whether you want something specifically for the weather, or parties, etc. When it comes to overall loud powerful bass, and sound, then VAVA Voom 21 is a great choice, but will fail you in the weather aspect because it has no water resistance. The JBL Charge 3 has numerous neat features, is water resistant, and has powerful volume. The UE Boom 2 is lighter weight, but will not produce the same quality in bass, nor overall sound as the JBL Charge 3. So it seems like the JBL Charge 3 may meet your overall criteria, but cannot match the sound the VAVA Voom 21 can produce on a day where weather is not an issue, not to mention is more expensive than the VAVA Voom 21.

Which is louder and delivers good sound... The jbl pulse 2 or UE boom 2?
Related: UE Boom 2, JBL Pulse 2, Portable Bluetooth Speakers | Submitted by NIck 694 days ago
A:

They actually both deliver great sound, but when it comes to louder, then we go into its db level. The UE Boom 2 has an output level of 88 db, and the JBL Pulse 2 has an output of 80 db. Bottom line, the UE Boom 2 has the capability of producing a louder sound. It also has a 15 hour battery life, while the JBL Pulse 2 only has about 10 hours. Both have 2 full-range drivers, but you may find that the UE Boom 2 will not have sufficient bass production unlike other speakers similar in size.

I am looking for a wireless speaker for portability reasons however the main use will be classical music in a very large room ie 60 feet x40 feet x20 feet ( ceilings) I have been considering big blue party and bose. I don't want to spend more than say $1,500. I understand that such a large room may require two connected speakers but I am would be interested in opininions on 2 vs 1 as well as reccommendations. thank you.

The Brookstone Big Blue Party has 4 full-range speaker drivers, with a massive 72watt output, sub woofer, and passive radiator. It would actually work quite well for the size of room you require. I don’t personally believe you would require two connected speakers. The one big blue party should do the trick.
Bose also has a few good selections, such as the Bose SoundLink Color II. It also has a large output of 55 watts, and is a bit more economical than the big blue party. However, it does not have a subwoofer, and only 2 drivers. Its rugged design gives it more durability while continuing to have large power output. It would still work wonderful for classical music, and Bose is known for producing true-to-life sound quality. Both are great selections.

 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.

Which one is better UE Roll 2 or JBL Flip 4?
Related: JBL Flip 4, UE Roll 2, Portable Bluetooth Speakers | Submitted by anonymous 720 days ago
A:

They are both pretty good, so it depends on the sort of detail you truly want. The UE Roll 2 is a smaller device, in turn delivering a smaller watt output than the JBL Flip 4 is capable of. The UE Roll has 4W vs the JBL Flip 4’s 16W output, but weighs nearly half of what the JBL Flip 4 does. The drivers on both differ greatly. The UE Roll has one 2 inch driver and two ¾ inch tweeters, while the JBL Flip 4 has two 40mm transducers, so you’ll find much better sound quality with the JBL Flip 4 at louder volumes. They both have a resilient design, and both have the same IPX7 water resistance. So if you find you want a much smaller, lighter weight device, then I would go with the UE Roll 2, but if you want more power, and more volume, the better choice would probably be the JBL Flip 4.

I am planning to Buy one JBL xtreme and two JBL Flip 3 to listen synchronously movie sound by keeping JBL xtreme in front and JBL flip 3 at backside (L/R).
So Anker speakers are better than JBL and Can anker speaker synchronize with each other like JBL?
A:

The Anker speakers listed have a much smaller watt output the JBL Xtreme's setup. The JBL Xtreme has two 63mm woofers, and two 35mm tweeters. Unless you're trying to listen to all your music at very low volumes, then none of them would match up to the JBL Xtreme in terms of the power the speakers can pump out. The highest watt device on that anker speaker list is about 20 watts with the Anker A3143. So I would say, no, they are not better than the JBL Xtreme's speakers. As for whether the anker speakers can synchronize with each other, the answer would be no. None of the anker speakers listed in your related section have the ability to connect to other speakers like that.

A:

They are both great devices. The JBL Flip 4 is IPX7 water resistant (up to 1m of immersion), has a durable build, holds a charge for 12 hours, has two 40mm transducers, and a 16W power output. The VAVA Voom 21 has two 5W drivers, two passive radiators, a 10W subwoofer, holds a charge for 10 hours, also has a durable build, and a 20W power output. The VAVA Voom is not water resistant and cannot really be used outdoors.

The JBL Flip 3 is also a good device to consider. It is IPx4 water resistant (splash proof, but can't be submerged like the Flip 4), has 10 hours of battery life, contains dual 1.57in transducers, and has a power output of 16W, along with weighing only 12 ounces (nearly half of what the JBL Flip 4 weighs). So, if you want something purely for volume and strong bass, then the VAVA Voom 21 would be a good choice. If you want something that’s close in sound quality, but can be taken outside or in the water, then the JBL Flip 4 would be a wonderful choice. If your looking for something durable, light-weight, at the cost of a little water resistance (IPX4, as opposed to the JBL Flip 4’s IPX7), and yet still producing decent sound quality, then the JBL Flip 3 would be a great choice. Ultimately the decision will boil down to your exact needs.

It has an impressive 72W power output, is IPx4 water resistant (splash proof), contains 4 speaker drivers, a subwoofer, a passive radiator, and about 4.5-hours of battery life. The Bose SoundLink Color is a great choice if you plan to take the speaker around with you to many places. It weighs about 1/12 of what the Brookstone Big Blue Party does, has a small design, an 8-hour battery life, and produces clear accurate sound, but it won't produce the same amount of volume.

They are both fairly awesome devices. The Arisen Windbox Elegant 20 watt speaker has dual high-definition drivers, a subwoofer, has an 8-hour battery life, and has Bluetooth 4.2 technology incorporated, which provides stronger connection, and data transmission. 


The Anker SoundCore Boost has 20 watts as well. The SoundCore Boost produces a clear, well-balanced sound with dual-performance drivers and twin passive subwoofers. Its' battery lasts 12 hours compared to the Arisen's 8 hours, and it's also water resistant (IPX5), so it's better to take on the go. It is maintains its composure at high volume levels, and is compact in size. So if you're looking for portability and durability, the Anker model is the better choice. But for aesthetic design and sound quality, the Arisen Windbox is the better choice.

The DKnight Magicbox, Amazon Tap, and Bose SoundLink Mini II are all great devices with unique strengths. The DKnight Magicbox is small, lightweight, has two 40mm 6W acoustic drivers, 10-hours of battery life, and has a 12W power output. Some complain that the voice notification it has is obnoxious, but overall it's a great speaker.
The Bose SoundLink Mini II is durably built, has 2 small drivers with front, and back radiators, and has the high quality sound that Bose is known for, working with a 50W power output. A negative quality to this speaker is that its battery efficiency is not particularly high.
The Amazon Tap has a sleek design, provides decent audio output, has a 9-hour battery life, is equipped with dual 1.5in drivers, and dual passive radiators for bass extension. What is particularly unique about the Amazon Tap is it offers all the conveniences of Amazons assistant Alexa in a Bluetooth speaker. Unfortunately, it does not deliver the same quality of sound as similar speakers in its price range. So if you want something small, and lightweight for your everyday travels, then perhaps the DKnight Magicbox would be an ideal choice. If you want overall sound quality, a high power output, along with a durable build, the Bose SoundLink Mini II may be the right choice for you. If you want something that can work hands-free using Amazons assistant Alexa, then the Amazon Tap is the speaker you’ve been searching for.

Related: SoundBot SB571, Anker SoundCore, Portable Bluetooth Speakers | Submitted by anonymous 783 days ago

It depends on what sort of details you’re looking to find in the device. The SoundBot SB571 is fairly priced, has two 40mm premium drivers, a subwoofer, a battery life of 12 hours, is fairly durable, and has a total power output of 12 watts. The Anker SoundCore has 2 drivers, a subwoofer, runs on 6 watts, has an amazing battery life of 24 hours, and guarantees less than 1% harmonic distortion while playing music.

A few negatives about the Anker SoundCore is that charging frequently will degrade your battery efficiency, the sound may distort when turned to 100% volume, and in this case scenario, costs about 4x the amount the SoundBot SB571 costs.

A couple of negatives the Soundbot 571 has is that at full volume the sound also begins to distort, and the battery charges at a slow pace.

So, if you are looking for something with slightly better bass and sound quality then the SoundBot SB571 would be the right choice, but if you want something that has twice the battery life at the cost of slightly less bass, then Anker SoundCore would be your best option.

JBL Flip 3 vs Anker Stereo Wireless Bluetooth 4.0 Speaker
Related: JBL Flip 3, Anker SoundCore, Portable Bluetooth Speakers | Submitted by anonymous 790 days ago
A:

The JBL Flip 3 is IPX4 water resistant (splash proof), has a battery life of 10 hours, has dual 1.57in transducers, and a 16W power output. It's also incredibly durable and can be dropped or shoved into a bag for easy transportation without fear of breaking it. . A couple negative points about the JBL Flip 3 is that it sounds a little flat, does not have very crisp highs, and distorts a bit at high volume

The Anker SoundCore has a subwoofer, dual high performance 3-watt drivers, a battery life of 24 hours, and a 6W output. The Anker SoundCore’s negative points are that it also tends to distort sound at high volume, and has absolutely no water resistance, so it can't really be used outdoors safely.

So, If you are looking for something with overall power, loudness, and water resistance, then the JBL Flip 3 would be a wise choice. If you want something with a nice sounding bass, an exceptional battery life of 24 hours, at the cost of a lower power output (6W, as opposed to the JBL Flip 3's 16W), then the Anker SoundCore would be a fine choice.

Hi there,

Why is it so much more expensive?
Related: JBL Xtreme, JBL Charge 3, Portable Bluetooth Speakers | Submitted by anonymous 804 days ago
A:
The reason that the JBL Xtreme is so much more expensive is because it is much larger and more powerful than the Charge 3. It's difficult to see in pictures, but the Xtreme is more than twice the size of the Charge 3 and requires a shoulder strap to carry around.
If you're looking for a huge booming speaker for a party or something, the Xtreme is a great choice, but because of its size it's not nearly as portable as the Charge 3 (which is also very durable and waterproof).
A:

The JBL Xtreme is definitely worth the difference in price if you are looking to hit very high volumes. It has two woofers that are 63mm each,  two tweeters that are 35 mm each, and a power output of 40 watts. the JBL Charge 3 has two 50mm transducers, and has a power output of 20 watts. That means the JBL Xtreme has twice the power output, thus can get much louder.

They are both pretty good, so it truly does depend on what it is you want exactly. The Vtin 20 Watt is IPX4 water resistant (splash proof), it has a rugged design (it is very durable), has an incredible 25-hours of battery life, two drivers, one subwoofer, and a 20 watt power output. Unfortunately, It has an issue where the lowest volume setting is still a little bit too loud, so if you’re looking to play soft, and relaxing music with it, then this may not be the best choice. It also has an issue where the charging ports not very sturdy, which may cause it to break easily.

The Anker SoundCore has dual high-performance 3-watt, drivers, a subwoofer, 24-hours of battery life, and has a 6W power output. A few negative points to this device is that it is not water or dust proof, the sound distorts at maximum volume, and charging frequently may degrade the batteries efficiency. That being said, you should go with the Vtin 20 Watt if you want to play music loudly, or if you need water resistance and durability. If you were looking for something similar in size, but very light in weight, along with the ability to play soft, and relaxing music comfortably, then the Anker SoundCore would be a wise decision.

Hi there, the Anker speaker is not so great for very loud environments. It only has an output of about 6 watts (compared to 16 watts on the JBL Flip 3 speaker, for example, which is roughly the same price). It also tends to lose some of the sound quality at high volumes.
A:

The Anker SoundCore only has a total power output of 6W, so that's 3 watts in each driver. This will not do you justice if decibel levels as high as you're mentioning are going on. Another issue is that even if you were to blast the volume to 100% the sound will most certainly distort. So, I would say it will most likely not provide you efficient sound quality, nor volume. You're better off with something that produces a little more power (Bose SoundLink Color II has an output of 55 watts, for example; or JBL Xtreme has an output of 40 watts).

The Pulse 2 light show is really cool for parties, and it can get rained on, but it can't be fully submerged. Both are really durable and have excellent sound quality. I have the Pulse 2 and I love it! (I mostly use it at home and at the beach).

It depends what you’re going for in terms of detail. The JBL Pulse 2 is IPX4 water resistant (splash proof), has 10 hours of battery life, two full-range drivers, and a power output of 16W. This device comes with a noise, and echo cancelling speakerphone, and JBL prism color sensor lens. This is definitely the sort of device you want if you trying to light up a party with cool colors. A few issues with the speaker itself is that it could use more high frequency presence, and the illumination is not synchronized with the rhythm of the music being played. The JBL Charge 3 has IPX7 water resistance, 20 hours of battery life, is dust proof, and has a power bank to charge devices on the go. It is equipped with two 50mm transducers, and has a power output of 20 watts. This is a fantastic device to have if you want the luxury of having a speaker that can efficiently charge other devices while you’re on the go in you’re everyday life.

Hello! Here is a blog post directly comparing these two products:
https://reviewfinder.com/blog/anker-soundcore-dual-driver-vs-cambridge-oontz-angle-3-differences-reviews-pros-and-cons-compared/

Overall, the Angle 3 is better for use outdoors, because it is more durable and water resistant. But the Soundcore has better battery life, Bluetooth range, and slightly better sound quality. So it depends on what you will use it for.
A:

The Cambridge Oontz Angle 3 has IPX5 water resistance (protection from small water jets), a 12-hour battery life, two precision neodymium drivers, a bass radiator, and a power output of 10W. This device produces quality sound for a very reasonable price. The Anker SoundCore has a batter life of one entire day, a subwoofer, dual high-performance 3-watt drivers, and a power output of 6 watts. You may find  the sound quality to be similar to the Cambridge Oontz Angle 3, however this device can last twice as long on one charge. It also has NFC support, unlike the Oontz Angle 3. The downside to this is that the Anker SoundCore is more than three times the cost.

All in all, if you want something with spectacular battery life then the Anker SoundCore would be the logical choice, but if you are on a stricter budget and want water resistance then the Cambridge Oontz Angle 3 would be better for you.

The JBL Xtreme has been reported to have 80 dB, while the VAVA Voom 21 has been reported to have 78 dB. In terms of how much louder a difference of 2dB is, if you compare 70 dB to 80 dB it's about double the loudness.

Unfortunately the top-ten bluetooth speakers would be a list formed solely on opinion. Every device has its unique pros, and cons.

As for whether the Bose SoundLink III is better than the JBL Xtreme, it also depends. They both essentially have a large power output, and have great sound quality.

 The Bose SoundLink III weighs 3 pounds, has four drivers, two passive radiators, and a frequency range of 45Hz-22kHz. The JBL Xtreme is IPX4 water resistant (splash proof), has a rather large design, weighs 4.6 pounds, is equipped with a power bank, two 63mm woofers, and two 35mm tweeters, with a power output of 40W, and a frequency range of 70Hz-20kHz.


I think if you want something for days at the pool then the JBL Xtreme would be the wiser choice since its water resistant, but if you want something for more of a home use, then the Bose SoundLink III would be a fine choice..

The Cambridge may be a better choice if you're looking for something with slightly less power out, but a bit more economically priced, lighter weight, and slightly more water resistant. The JBL Flip 3 would be a better choice if you want to go louder in volume without sound degradation, and have a few extra features such as, airplay, and fm radio.

I'm confused to pick between Anker Soundcore, Dknight Magicbox II, and Oontz angle 3
Trying to get speaker under $50
Thanks
A:

The DKnight Magicbox weighs 10 ounces, and has an ultra small design. It is equipped with a 10W driver, has a 10W power output, and a 12-hour battery life. This is a great device to have if you are looking for a speaker that can fit in a backpack, suitcase, or a quick travel bag. One of its downsides is that it’s on the higher cost spectrum considering its power output.


The Anker SoundCore weighs 9.5 ounces, has a 24-hour battery life, is equipped with two dual high-performance 3W drivers, and has a power output of 6W. This device is particularly great if you want a lightweight device that has amazing battery life. 


The Cambridge Oontz Angle 3 has IPX5 water resistance (protection from small water jets), a 12-hour battery, two precision neodymium drivers, a bass radiator, and has a power output of 10W. This is a great device to have if you want something lightweight, and water resistant at a fair price.

I am assuming you are referring to all bluetooth speakers in general, so it's difficult to say what's the better option because it always depends on what you're looking to get out of the speaker. I would recommend the VAVA Voom 21. It has a fantastic sound quality, and is durably built. It has two 5W drivers, two passive radiators, a 10W subwoofer, and has a 20W power output. This speaker has a particularly great bass, and is typically sought out by those whom enjoy good bass.

It is hard to say what’s best because it always depends on what sort of detail you're looking for. I would suggest trying out the SoundBot SB520. It is equipped with two 50mm premium drivers, a passive subwoofer, and has a power output of 10W. It has amazing sound quality, a long lasting battery (15-hours), and fits your budget. A couple negatives to it is that its battery charges slowly, and the sound drops a little when the volume is set to maximum.

I would recommend the VAVA Voom 21. It produces great sounds quality, and its bass is absolutely exceptional. This device brings two 5w drivers, two passive radiators, a 10W subwoofer, and has a power output of 20W. It has a decent battery life of 10-hours, has a power bank to charge other devices when you're on the go, and has a resilient design.

In the market for a bluetooth speaker for my daughter. I want relatively good quality, obviously, without a big price tag. I see good deals on amazon for the Etekcity bluetooth 4.0 and the Anker Soundcore. Anyone familiar with these speakers?
Related: Etekcity RoverBeats T3, Anker SoundCore, Portable Bluetooth Speakers | Submitted by anonymous 967 days ago
A:

The Etekcity RoverBeats T3 has a very simple design and interface. It has a 3W output, mono sound, and 8-hours of battery life. Since it only has mono capability, and is extremely lightweight with a small design, it has a disadvantage when it comes to producing clear sound, especially at higher volumes. 

The Anker SoundCore has a subwoofer, dual high-performance 3W drivers, and a total power output of 6W. It's also lightweight, but not nearly as tiny as the Etekcity RoverBeats T3.

It pretty much boils down to if you want something that's very affordable with a very small design, but at the sacrifice of some sound quality. If this it the case, then Etekcity RoverBeats T3 would be a fine choice. If you want something that's a little bit more expensive, and that sacrifices size for stereo capabilities, then the Anker SoundCore would be a wise decision for you

Which is better, the new DKnight Magic Box or the Va Va Voom?
Related: DKnight Magicbox, VAVA Voom 21, Portable Bluetooth Speakers | Submitted by anonymous 990 days ago
A:

It depends on what you're trying to do with the device. The Dknight magic box has two 40mm 6W acoustic drivers with a power output of 12 watts. This is a very lightweight device, so it’s very easy to carry around without straining yourself. The VAVA Voom 21 weighs 1.8 pounds, has two 5W drivers, two passive radiators, a 10W subwoofer, and a power output of 20 watts. It is made to be durable. You will find that the VAVA Voom 21 has much better sound quality than the DKnight Magicbox., but the DKnight Magicbox is much easier to carry around when you're on the go.

Soundbot SB571. Very good sound and easily operated.

The SoundBot SB571 would indeed be a good choice. It has two 40mm premium drivers, a subwoofer, and a 12 watt output. Another great choice would be the DKnight Magicbox. This device has two 40mm 6W acoustic drivers, and also an output of 12 watts. If those two speakers don't catch your eye then another fine choice would be the Cambridge Oontz Angle 3, It has 2 precision neodymium drivers, a bass radiator, and a power output of 10 watts. Out of the 3 this is the more expensive choice. All three are simple to use, and under $30.

Is the sound quality of the Soundbot SB520 better than SB571?
Related: SoundBot SB571, SoundBot SB520, Portable Bluetooth Speakers | Submitted by anonymous 992 days ago
A:

The bass notes are a lot heavier on the SB520. Other than that the mids and highs are quite similar.

A:

In some ways it certainly is. The SoundBot SB520 has two 50mm drivers, compared to the SoundBot SB571's two 40mm drivers. This will undoubtedly give it a nicer sounding bass (the larger the driver the better the bass). The SoundBot SB571 can get louder, but I hardly think that would qualify as sound quality.

I wanted to decide between JBL Flip 3 And Anker Soundcore. The price difference is significant, hence I wanted to know if Anker provides a nearly similar sound experience as the JBL Flip.

You will see a difference in sound quality between the Anker SoundCore Sport, and the JBL Flip 3. Unfortunately, since the Anker SoundCore Sport is such a small device, it distorts at high volumes, and cannot handle the same deep bass that a JBL Flip 3 can.

Hi,
I'm looking to buy a portable bluetooth speaker. I'm not experienced with audio speakers, so I'd like some help. A friend recommended the JBL Go and from looking around on Amazon, I thought the Oontz Angle 3 is good. Can you tell me your opinion please? Thanks!
Related: Cambridge Oontz Angle 3, JBL Pulse 2, Portable Bluetooth Speakers | Submitted by anonymous 1026 days ago
A:

The JBL Go is indeed a neat device if you want a very small, lightweight device (4.586 ounces). It has one 40 mm transducer, a 5-hour battery life, and a power output of 3W. This is sort of on the lower spectrum of wattage, but its signal to noise ratio is amazingly 80 dB. The Cambridge Oontz Angle 3 has a 12-hour battery life, two precision neodymium drivers, a bass radiator, and a power output of 10W. I believe you'll get much better sound quality from the Cambridge Oontz Angle 3 at the cost of it weighing about 4 ounces more than the JBL GO. I noticed you also listed the JBL Pulse 2 in related, and I should point out this is a much heavier device in comparison to the others, but also has much more power. Not only does it give you cool colors for parties, but is equipped with two full-range drivers, at a 16W output. All in all, if you want something to party with that can get loud, and produce lights then the JBL Pulse 2 would be a great choice. If your looking for something as small as you can go then the JBL GO would be the right choice. If you want to sort of meet in the middle then the Cambridge Oontz Angle 3 would definitely be a wise choice.

What are the cons of buying Taotronics Boom x?
Related: TaoTronics Boom X TT-SK06, Portable Bluetooth Speakers | Submitted by anonymous 1028 days ago
A:

A few cons of buying the TaoTronics Boom X TT-SK06 is that you may find it to be a bit heavy weighing at 1.6 pounds. It has no water resistance, so if you wanna be at the pool you shouldn't bring this device along. It also has absolutely no NFC support, so if a lack of near field communication is a deal breaker for you, then this speaker will most likely not be right for you.

Is taotronics boom x better than jbl flip 3 in terms of sound. What are the cons of taotronics

A:

In terms of sound the TaoTronics Boom X TT-SK06 can easily match, if not surpass the JBL Flip 3, at least in terms of sound quality. The JBL Flip 3 is equipped with dual 1.57in transducers, and has a power output of 16W. The TaoTronics Boom X TT-SK06 has 2x 10w speakers, and x2 passive radiators, and has a power output of 20W. This is a great speaker in terms of price, and loudness. You’ll find it has a great sound quality considering it is on the lower end of the spectrum when it comes to its cost. A few downsides to the TaoTronics Boom X TT-SK06 is that it has no water resistance, while the JBL Flip 3 does. It’s a lot heavier as well, weighing at 1.6 pounds, as opposed to the JBL Flip 3’s 12 ounces. The TaoTronics Boom X TT-SK06 battery life is only about 6-hours, while the JBL Flip 3 has about 10-hours. Finally, it has no nfc, so if you are aiming for a device with near field communication, then the TaoTronics Boom X TT-SK06 would be a poor choice.

Which bluetooth speaker I should buy ? Anker soundcore or Cambridge SoundWorks OontZ Angle 3?

A:
Hi! Here is a direct comparison of these two products: https://reviewfinder.com/blog/anker-soundcore-dual-driver-vs-cambridge-oontz-angle-3-differences-reviews-pros-and-cons-compared/
Overall, the Oontz Angle 3 is better for use outdoors, but the Soundcore has better battery life and better battery life, Bluetooth range, and sound quality.
A:

They are both fairly good. The Anker SoundCore has a subwoofer, dual high-performance 3-watt drivers, and a 6W power output. It's lightweight, and has a battery life of one entire day (24-hours). The Cambridge Oontz Angle 3 has two precision neodymium drivers, a bass radiator, and a power output of 10 watts. The Anker SoundCore is more expensive than the Cambridge Oontz Angle 3, but also has a lot more features, such as nfc support, and fm radio, not to mention it has twice the battery power. So if you’re on a strict budget the Cambridge Oontz Angle 3 may be a good choice, but if you want a device with impeccable battery life, that’s also lightweight, and includes features such as nfc, and fm radio then the Anker SoundCore would certainly be worth looking into.

Which speaker is better between Bose Soundlink III and JBL Xtreme ? Which has the better Wattage and Bass ?
Related: JBL Xtreme, Bose SoundLink III, Portable Bluetooth Speakers | Submitted by anonymous 1037 days ago
A:

It is hard to say which one is outright better since they both have their pros, and cons. As far as bass, and wattage goes the JBL Xtreme has 2x 63mm woofers, 2x 35mm tweeters, and has a power output of 40 watts (20W-low, 20W-high). The Bose SoundLink III has 4-drivers, and two passive radiators, but unfortunately do not provide information when it comes to how many watts it is. Bose SoundLink III uses AC (alternating current) instead of DC (direct current), so in order to find the watts one would need to know the rms-current, and rms-voltage to calculate the power.  They both have 4-drivers, which make them similar in that aspect, but you’ll find the Bose SoundLink III can hit 90 db, while the JBL Xtreme only hits 80 db. This means the sound can go louder on the Bose SoundLink III. The Bose SoundLink III has a frequency range of 45hz-22khz, and the JBL Xtreme has a range of 70Hz-20kHz. This means that the Bose SoundLink III can have the potential for juicier bass because it can go to a lower frequency that is well into the sub-bass range. So you'll find the Bose SoundLink III is more powerful, and has better bass.

I want a deep bass Bluetooth speaker, similar to the Taotronics YYSK06 but louder. Suggestions?
Related: TaoTronics Boom X TT-SK06, Portable Bluetooth Speakers | Submitted by anonymous 1039 days ago
A:

The Harman Kardon Onyx Studio would be a good choice if you want to go with a device capable of going much louder.. It has two 3in woofers, two 3/4in tweeters, two passive radiators., and a phenomenal power output of 60 watts. So you'll definitely be able to go louder than the TaoTronics Boom X TT-SK06, and have great bass all at the same time. The VAVA Voom 21 would also be a great choice, as it has spectacular bass. It is considered one of the loudest bluetooth speakers for its size. It has two 5W drivers, two passive radiators, and a passive subwoofer. You can max out the volume on this device, and experience no sound degradation. The VAVA Voom 21 also has a lower frequency range than the TaoTronics Boom X TT-SK06, so you can hit very deep bass with it.
