For most gadgets these days, you would be surprised at the value for money you’ll get if you look past popular brand names. The Anker SoundCore 2 gives you just that – great value for money. How much would you pay for a 24-hour battery life Bluetooth speaker? This mini Bluetooth speaker costs just $40 from Amazon and Aliexpress. Let’s see just how good it is in this Anker SoundCore 2 review.

Watching movies and listening to audio on your phone is cool and all but an external Bluetooth speaker definitely takes it to another level. You also don’t have to break the bank to get one with good sound and battery life thanks to Anker’s SoundCore 2. The device doesn’t beat most Bluetooth speakers when it comes to audio quality , but there is incredible value at the price and size of this thing.

Design

Anker SoundCore 2 review

The first thing you notice about the speaker is the rugged and durable build. The Anker SoundCore 2 is coated in a grippy matte black rubber which is nice to hold. It feels like it can take a couple of falls (don’t go tossing it though). The power, playback, pairing and volume controls all on the top of the device.

It has two 6-watt drivers on the front, covered by a metal grille. The micro USB charging port and an AUX port on the right side of the speaker is covered by a water resistant flap.

Anker soundcore 2 waterproof

Oh did I mention Anker’s SoundCore 2 is water resistant at $40? It has an IPX5 rating, meaning it’ll survive splashes of water. Consequently, in some tests, the device has been submerged fully in water for a couple of minutes with no harm. However, I won’t advice you try that for anything other than commercial purposes.

The Anker SoundCore 2 measures at 165mm X 54mm X 45mm which makes it really portable and also able to fit in a bag pack without taking much space.

Performance

The sound quality of the Anker SoundCore 2 are average, but keep in mind the $40 price tag. It is definitely better than listening to music on your phone or laptop. Simply you can talk to Siri, Google Assistant or other assistant press and hold on the play button () for a few seconds. But you have to closer to your mobile.

Anker Soundcore 2 bass up technology

The sound quality is really crisp, with well-balanced sound. The mids and highs are well defined along with nice treble which makes overall music quality pleasant. Likewise, the bass is really good and punchy especially with its built-in BassUp technology. Also, adjusting the EQ settings on your device can give you even more bass from this device.

While indoors, the speaker is loud especially for its size but you’ll notice the max volume falls a little short while outdoors. However, there is also little to no distortions at max volume.

Also, the speaker has a very good battery life of 24 hours of continuous playback time. This is dependent on the volume levels, because at max volume I get about 18 hours of battery life.

Connectivity on this speaker is well about average, in fact it is really good. The Bluetooth range is about 33 feet, but it also depends on your environment and whether there are obstructions in between.

Verdict

The Anker SoundCore 2 is a solid budget speaker especially at this price range (sub $50). Even more, it has rich and crystal sound with its dual 6 Watt acoustic drivers reproducing sound with accuracy. Furthermore the speaker is well built which means it can take a couple of falls. Water resistance at this price is also quite awesome, as it makes the device useful at pool parties. The battery last 24 hours on a full charge which is more than enough to last a couple of days for the average user. Overall, the Anker SoundCore 2 provides more value than expected of a device at this price point.

Pros

  • Water resistance
  • 24-hour battery life
  • Solid and well-constructed design
  • Very cheap price

Cons

  • Less than impressive max volume outdoors
