This is the soundcore 2.
It's better than the normal & cheaper Soundcore but not quite as good as the Boost model which is quite a bit more expensive.

You are wrong because I actually own these and have owned or used or listened to a bunch of others so am perfectly placed to call you out on your comment about "a complete lack of bass, depth and clarity to your music".

That quote from you is not an opinion as you claim in your opening remark. It's a falsehood that could only come from someone that has not listened to a Soundcore 2.
It is patently untrue and I am slightly annoyed by the size of the untruth you have uttered.

As I previously implied, the Soundcore products are superior to other cheap brands.
I know this through actual usage experience and am backed up by thousands of positive Amazon reviews unlike other cheap brands.

my colleague owns a Bose Soundlink II and we both were amazed at how the Boost model was not hugely dissimilar in sound quality.
The Bose cost £150; my Soundcore Boost cost £33.

Before you comment further on the Soundcore products, I suggest you do yourself a favor and actually spend some time listening to the Soundcore 2 or (preferably) the Soundcore Boost and doing a comparison.


A complete lack of bass
... What utter nonsense.

Ive got the boost version of this speaker, it’s brilliant. Also got a few smaller Anker speakers too and the quality/sound is superb. Highly recommend Anker!

I've got a boost as well.
It's nearly as good as the Bose soundlink 2 in my opinion but for far far less.
Not sure why this is cold (atm), as it's a very good price for a very decent speaker. Thanks @Bestard
I'm not voting, it's a good price, but these speakers are so massively overrated IMO, would guess at the cold votes (so far) meaning that some others agree.

If you're happy to accept a complete lack of bass, depth and clarity to your music, then you may like it

Completely and utterly wrong.
I've had speakers from other brands such as Betron which were dreadful.
This speaker certainly is not.

Take a look at the thousands of Amazon reviews on the three main models.

So, I'm wrong about my own opinion?? Ok then, thanks for letting me know

Anyway, to be a bit more specific, I'm talking about the way they are constantly compared to Bose and other reasonable sounding speakers from the likes of JBL ect.. In comparison these are just noisy paperweights. Yes, compared to other speakers in this price bracket they are decent, but I still think you can find much better options by spending just a little bit more.

The Boost, when discounted to £34.99 is a much better option.

Well it is an opinion, I'm not sure why you're getting annoyed about it, that seems a bit ott, I'm not criticising you

I have both the Soundcore 2 and boost. I even recommended the boost in my previous post. I also have the original Anker speaker which is much better than this Soundcore. I simply don't like the sound these speakers put out, and would rather listen to something I can enjoy. To compare them to Bose is the only nonsense here.

Was initially only trying to offer an explanation for the cold votes, so apologies if I have offended you in some way. I didn't actually vote cold myself
Got the soundcore and soundcore 2. I think for the price they are brilliant. Hot
Got the 3camels notification and it's at the cheapest price it's been

Does anyone have an opinion on how this compares to the UE Boom 2? That gets 5 stars on What HiFi but I haven’t found much from audio technology websites about the Anker SoundCore range. I know the Boom 2 will be better but it costs about £100. This is definitely at a better price point for me because I think I’ll only use it occasionally. But if the Anker sounds terrible I’ll hold out for a deal on the Boom 2.

These don't sound terrible, but in this price range I would wait for a deal on the Boost. At around £35, that's a much better deal. Whether you'll find either good enough is probably governed by what you're used to. Despite the hype, Bose, Sonos, B&W, JBL etc.. these are not, but they are better than other cheapo speakers in a similar price bracket.

Nah, just bought it to look at
