If anyone's interested, I purchased this back in September 2017 when it was on Amazon's Deal of the Day. I previously used a Divoom Voombox Travel (another great brand) circular speaker which only had a 5W driver and other speakers over the years. The difference is amazing. This is without doubt the best bluetooth speaker I've had the pleasure to use. It's about on par with the Divoom Voombox Outdoor (which usually retails for between £45-70 and has 15W dual drivers).

If you're not planning on taking this out in the elements, it's an absolute steal at this price. I usually have my mobile / laptop connected to Spotify streaming on 'best quality' over wifi connected to this. Hell, I've even used it to watch films on my laptop to replace my speakers and there's a massive difference.

It's a little heavy, but less than a bag of sugar. The cable isn't that long, but I've used one of my own (as I have a 5 port USB charger and longer cables). Depending on usage, it shouldn't take too long to charge. I've only managed to drain the internal battery once, but it can of course play while plugged in. If I recall correctly, it took about 3 hours to charge from 0 to 100% using my USB charger. On a 1-2 hour session, and put on charge, it took roughly 45 minutes to charge back to 100%.

If you're after a bluetooth speaker, you can't go wrong with this one. It comes with a decent warranty, you just need to register it on their website.
Do I need it? No. Did I order it? Yes.

8 - 12 hours in a week? No wonder they go by so fast

Do I need it? No. Did I order it? Yes.
Like @SamuraiHQ I got this during the lightning deal last year. At this price it is a bargain. The sound quality is excellent. I've used it for both music and as a "soundbar" for my tablet when watching a movie whilst away. It is very well constructed and has a quality feel to it, although it is quite heavy for it's size.

I've had this side by side with a Bose Soundlink which is 5x the price, and although it is better sound quality wise, it's not that much better.

I've had a couple of BT speakers in the past and this is by far the best.
can you make handsfree calls with this?

can you make handsfree calls with this?


Yes. I haven't used it for this though, but the specs say it's fine to do so.
Thanks for this.
Great deal! Thanks op
Thanks! Ordered. That's a bargain, needed something to replace my ailing Sharkk Boombox (which is very good by the way).
I own this, it's absolutely amazing. Well worth this price. You can make or receive calls with it. It looks good and the sound quality is amazing.
Hi All looks good, if i was to go for the best speaker less than £30 which is the best one to go for?
AUKEY Bluetooth Speaker
Anker SoundCore
DOSS SoundBox
Or something else?
No too fussed on saving £6, just want the best sound quality with bass for the budget.
Main use will be on holiday and spare room so small size is bonus.

I doubt these have much bass, if you hear oluv's audio recording you will notice only soundcore pro has bass but at 90 quid you might as well buy jbl charge 3.
I would say dont buy these cheap ones, they are excellent value for money but as soon as you hear a better one, these will sound awful to you.
I really don't need this. Ordered. Thanks OP, Thanks a lot! :P
Thanks for this - I was looking for BT speaker and this seems good for the money.
Got one of these last time, and its great for the money. It's easily loud enough, and whilst its a tiny bit lacking in the treble department, its very good for speech, radio and most music. It works well as a little soundbar for small TV's or computer monitors. It has a line in as well as bluetooth connection and will work when charging / plugged in.
Construction quality is very good too.
Does it have a SDcard / USB slot?

Does it have a SDcard / USB slot?


Doesn't look like it - but I bought this one which does - a bit more expensive but it does have a good sound. I wish I could offer a side by side comparison!

COWIN 6110 Bluetooth Speakers, Portable Wireless Speaker 4.1 with 16W Enhanced Bass, High-End Fashion Aluminum-Alloy Shell, TF Card Support amazon.co.uk/dp/…X43
I bought this too when it was last on offer. As most posts say, it's quite good though I was it had some water resistance as it lives in the kitchen. Biggest downside is that at switch on, it makes the most annoying "bootup" sound and also when it connects.
I paid £31 in amazon for my aukey eclipse. Pretty happy with it. Compared to this one, mine got 10Wpc against 8Wpc (16in total) and most importantly passive bass radiators on each side of the device for a bit better stereo separation against front and back firing ones in this one... So choose wisely
Is it better than anker soundboost 2

I quite like the bootup and connect sound. It's got some balls on it I mean "heavy sound" to know it is turned on. I suppose it could be an issue if you going to turn it on when u have a baby sleep in the room as its not sutle.

Thanks for the info i decided to go for it anyway for holidays as it smaller... probably not the best ever but its deal!

I've noticed a lot of the cheaper speakers seem to have this (including my current one), why god why
Amazon says this speaker has a "mic for echo dot." Can someone tell me what that means?
Anyone know if it works with an Echo Dot via cable (not Bluetooth)? The most important thing is that it doesn't shut down after a period of not receiving any input. My Jam Heavy Metal does that, so I have to run it through Bluetooth, which has its own issues (primarily that drop-in has to disconnect from Bluetooth, so you miss the first few seconds of what someone's trying to say to you).

Sorry to say, it shuts down after about 10 minutes with no input.
I purchased this a while back, the last time it was reduced. The sound quality is truly impressive - but I've found the Bluetooth to be terrible. Yueying gave me a 1/3rd off not to return it, but honestly it might as well be a wired speaker because from time to time if I don't have my phone literally on top of the speaker it cuts out every few seconds.
this or or the anker soundcore?

Thanks. Yet another poor design. How hard can it be for designers to realise that shutting down if not used is sensible when running on battery, but when the thing is plugged into power then staying on unless explicitly shut down makes more sense? See also mi-fi type devices.
Is this on par with the Jam Heavy metal (bass aside), or is the Jam head and shoulder above it?
This is less than half the price of the Jam, so I expect it’s not really a fair comparison, but the Jam is what I’ve been looking at purchasing recently.
Brought today at 11:00, delivered by 18:40, love the Amazon Prime service! Beyond this, initial impressions seem to be that it looks brilliant and has a great, rich sound. Not going to sound like Glasto but will easily fill a room/small garden. Very happy with it!

The Anker weighs 340g. The Aukey weighs 680g. If you value heft, get the Aukey.

But it remains powered if a Bluetooth connection remains does it not?
You may struggle to find a better speaker for the price.

Oh and Blumb Blumb...Kitchi-Kitcha!
Hi Guys,

I ordered the Anker Soundcore in yesterdays lightning deal for around £23.

amazon.co.uk/dp/…-21

If anyone has had experience of both, am I better off returning the anker and getting this or just keeping the anker?

In terms of what I'm looking for, powerful speakers with at least decent bass and relatively portable. Mainly to use in my room and on holidays
Looks like the price has gone back up to £32 now.
I used this recently for a presentation when the hall sound system failed. Hall was about 10m x 12m with 6m high ceiling and this filled the hall easily with clear and bass-heavy sound with no distortion.
In fact I had to turn it down! Exceeded mine and other's expectations.

Otherwise it just sits in the bedroom delivering great sound from alexa.
Ok this sounds way better than i expected. Blows away my anker soundcore (1). Haven't compared to our jbl charge 2 yet but wouldn't be surprised if it beats that and that's over £100 now! Cheers op would never have considered this brand otherwise. Bluetooth is a bit basic and controls are horrible but whatever, it's a bargain and doesn't look or sound cheap.
