Heat for me thanks
How can this be left like this?
Heat from me. Been waiting for this to drop in price. I ordered the lesser speck Anker speaker that had a price drop yesterday, but have now cancelled that and ordered this one.
WTF is a 'passive subwoofer' in this device? Do they mean it is ported which is not the same?

It was -28° in one hour, this must be a really bad price. I'd leave it if i was you and go for the lesser spec one again X)
Really not sure why this is cold. I bought this when it was £55 and it is awesome. Had a JBL Flip 3 before and this (sound wise) is much, much better. Only thing that is disappointing is that it doesn't auto power off.

This seems to be the lowest price it's ever been:

Now it is -103, I am considering its earphones
Is this better than the SoundCore 2?
Always take Anker reviews on amazon with a grain of salt as they are known to basically give free stuff to reviewers to leave 4/5 star reviews.

Is this better than the SoundCore 2 ?


It has twice the output (20W vs 10W), but it don't know if sound quality wise, it's better or not. It does sound brilliant though and I think you'd have a very hard time finding anything better for £44. Can't understand why this is cold at all.

Yeah, it was even voted higher last time it was posted on here as well and that one was selling for £54.99.
I would rather trust this youtubers reviews over other peoples opinions

Another review from a well known youtuber here

I do wish those reviewers would speak a bit slower. Yeah, and it's a bit disappointing about the battery life alright, but then again, do you really need 12 hours? I guess some people's preferences are going to be different of course.
Just received mine, and the sound is awesome. Build is very solid, it just oozes quality.
I just got mine and I can say that for the price point, it is fantastic. I had the Anker A3143 and can confirm that they have got rid of that terrible connection sound. This one has a much more subtle sound. The reviewers are saying this speaker has a battery life of 7 hours and not the stated 12. I have yet to test this. The sound quality for under £50, is extremely good value for money.

Let me know when you've tested the water resistance watch it get posted a few quid more and go hot. Pathetic voting on this...

So, having bought both units I compared them side by side. The SoundCore Boost is slightly bassier. Other than that, they're very much on a par. I will return the SoundCore 2 because I'm all about the bass.

I haven't even charged mine yet (came pre charged) and I bet I've had at least 8 hours out of it so far. I've got a feeling some of the reviews on Amazon are for other speakers too (quite common on Amazon for mixed up reviews). Go for it, if you're not happy just send it back

Saying that, it's back up at £55 now

I must say it is a nice speaker, not sure why it was voted cold (although I hit cold by accident)

When adding some EQ tweaking for added Treble , and it is near a wall, it improves the sound greatly

I just received the speaker and I'm not sure if its charging properly. I'm using the usb supplied and a 2A charger; the manual says it's fully charged when all the led lights disappear but I've changed mine for hours and the four led lights remain.

when did you 'just receive it'? you posted at 10am so unless you get your post at 5 in the morning then maybe wait a bit!

The manual is incorrect. It's fully charged when all lights stay on (not flashing). They don't disappear.
