Top 10 Bluetooth speakers in India: 2020 (Review & Buying Guide)

Looking for speakers? Portable one? You are at the right place.

Portable Bluetooth speaker has become a need of everyone in today’s life. Speakers have come a long way since its inception. Now, it’s no more a bulky gadget which you can’t carry along with you. Or a mess of wire which needs to be sorted out before playing.

They have become portable and powerful, the same can be used for both personal as well as any house party or camping outside. You just have to charge it and you are good to go. Bluetooth has become an integral part of technology nowadays. Advancement in Bluetooth has led to the audio industry to flourish in all aspects and giving the consumer a hassle-free experience.

Talking about best Bluetooth speakers, many companies have their product in the market and sometimes it becomes very confusing to choose from. Then, comes our part, we did an exhaustive study and have curated an extensive list of best Bluetooth speakers in India.

We have made this list on certain parameters, which is essential while choosing a Bluetooth speaker.

Things to Know Before Buying a portable speaker

Battery

This is one of the key points which you have to keep in mind while selecting a Bluetooth speaker. The Larger the battery more the back-up you get. However, it makes the speaker heavier too. This is where you have to draw a line and create a right balance according to your need.

Sound

Everyone wants their speaker to sound better and have a distortion of less than 1%. Lower the better. This mainly depends on the driver and frequency response. Bigger the drivers better the sound. Frequency response is also a key factor for the sound. Its figures include top and bottom values. These are generally like 100 Hz and 20 kHz. 100 Hz is the low frequency and 20 kHz is the highest frequency. Low frequency is for the bass, so the lower it is, better it would be for bass.

Connectivity

Although we are talking about Bluetooth speakers, you will say why connectivity? But it’s always good to have another option. So, you must also look for USB, AUX, NFC. Which will make your speaker a little smarter. Adding to this, if there is a microphone it will be cherry on the cake. This will help you attend calls and also lets you interact with your google assistant or Alexa.

Bluetooth

You should always look at which Bluetooth version, the company is offering. You can go for Bluetooth 2.0 and above version. In version 2.0, ‘EDR’ which stands for ‘Enhance Data Rate’ was introduced. This is responsible for the better quality of streaming.

Charging

These days micro-USB port is common, which enable you to charge through power banks directly instead of looking for a socket near you. Also, you should look at the time a speaker takes to fully charge.

Waterproofing

It’s mandatory. If you are buying a portable Bluetooth speaker, it means you wish to take it everywhere, even near to water. So, it becomes a must for a speaker to be waterproof. Nowadays, there are lots of speakers which are completely submersible in water. So, if you are a person who likes to be near water most of the time, then it becomes a must thing to have in your speaker.

Connected Speakers

If you are a party person and likes to have parties every other day, then this feature is for you. This lets you achieve stereo sound by connecting multiple speakers at a time. Which enhances sound and gives depth in the track. I promise you will love this feature.
