- Tell me about…… Portable Bluetooth Speakers
These are great for the money IMO. Surprisingly bassy depending on what you put it on.Posted 4 years agoharry tooMember
So having joined the tablet market I have downloaded a load of legit tracks onto it.
Now just need a way of playing it out, the speaker on the Nexus 7 makes a surprisingly listenable noise but its no B&O.
Other bits to add to the potential wish list are:
Portable with decent battery life.
Half decent range
Price wise – would consider anything sub £50ish?? maybe a little more, ideally a lot less.
So whats the general recommendation?Posted 4 years ago
Cheap ones are just not worth it.
I love it when people make sweeping statements like this. You’ve used the one I linked to then?
Is this the Yamaha one you’re talking about?Posted 4 years ago
We’re not going lambaste the PDX-B11 and slap it with the worst Bluetooth speaker rating ever, but we certainly can’t recommend it, either.soma_richMember
I went for the VehoPosted 4 years ago
I use it loads more than I though I would, the only downside is the base but then it was never going to be thumping in something so small!
Logitech mini boombox here, I bought mine when there were only two on the market really.
Works nicely – sound is on a par with a more substantial portable radio, I just treat it like that. It won’t match a big iPod dock speaker system really, but it does go remarkably loud for the size. Battery seems to last ages too.Posted 4 years ago
Why is it a problem that it things it’s a headset? My W7 thinks it’s a headset, because it has a mic as well as a speaker and can work as a headset too.
Thinking about it, I did have some problems getting high quality audio (aka A2DP) – I think it was Lenovo specific. I had to reinstall a particular Bluetooth driver and it worked. Still thinks it’s a headset but does not cause a problem.Posted 4 years agoalibongo001Subscriber
Whilst more spend can definitely get better quality sound, I was very surprised by the X mini stuff I bought recently:
You can get a couple of these for around half your budget and they sound surprisingly good with a reasonable bass!Posted 4 years agostumpy01Member
That little Veho soma-rich mentions is very impressive.
Although that Sony that sebgt links too looks good and a decent size should provide a fuller sound (maybe).
alibongo001 – I’ve got some of the mini-max II speakers and they are bloody impressive. But not bluetooth (not sure if they do a bluetooth version) and the wire that came with mine is really low quality. It has split at a connection point (near the vol control) and I have to be very careful with it. I’ve looked at replacement cables, but they are almost as much as the speakers cost in the first place!Posted 4 years ago
