Performance

Made possible through superior bluetooth technology, the Anker Soundcore Bluetooth Speaker has a bluetooth range that averages to about 20 meters, which is great for controlling your stereo sound music from a distance. Also, from a single charge, you’ll be able to use the little speaker for close to a day courtesy of its 20 hour playtime battery life, but if you opt for the jbl charge 4, you’ll get a full 24-hours. It also features a patented bass port that prevents its two high sensitivity drivers from attempting to reach very low frequencies, and helps deliver a deep bass that lacks any major harmonic distortion.

Design

The unibody design of the Anker portable wireless speaker does a lot for it in terms of portability, and its solid, drop-proof build makes it sturdy enough for use in the outdoors. As for the controls, you’ll find the on-off button on its top panel, alongside the play, skip and bluetooth buttons that are there as well. The Anker Soundcore Bluetooth speaker is available in either black, blue or red, and despite not being as light as the oontz angle 3 bluetooth speaker, it’s still unlikely to be a bother to carry around.

Value

Compared to other bluetooth speakers around the same $30 price point, the Anker Soundcore offers a lot in terms of sound quality, and comes packed with pretty advanced bluetooth technology. It’s built-in mic also allows for seamless connection and interaction with virtual assistants, and since it also includes an auxiliary input, you can also connect non-bluetooth devices to play your music from. Compared to a more expensive choice in the same category (e.g the bose soundlink color ii bluetooth speaker), you’d be hard pressed to justify spending more than $30 on a portable speaker. This is why the Anker Soundcore remains a popular choice for users who enjoy listening to their music on the go.
