Anker's SoundCore 2 isn't as special as Amazon reviewers say

 

Anker's popular $35 mini Bluetooth speaker is a decent deal, although it doesn't sound quite as good as a lot of people think.

The Anker SoundCore 2 delivers better than average sound for the money, is water-resistant and has strong battery life. There's also a built-in microphone for speakerphone calls.

Distorts at higher volumes and can't handle deep bass.

While Anker's SoundCore 2 doesn't sound as good as some people think, it's a likable, relatively inexpensive mini Bluetooth speaker with strong battery life.

Anker SoundCore 2 Bluetooth speaker review: Good sound in a super small, very affordable package

 

Compact, with good sound for its size, the SoundCore 2 is a bargain at $39.

Small form factor and solid construction ; Very good sound for its size ; 24-hour run time on battery power ; IPX5 water resistant

Not a lot of thump ; Mid-range becomes incoherent at higher volumes

As I said up front, you're not going to hear audiophile sound, or anything close to it from a small, long-running speaker designed for light travel and rough weather. But I find it hard to imagine one designed to those criteria that sounds better than...

Anker SoundCore 2 review

 

While your phone’s speaker may be good enough to play your music on the go, they're far from the ideal solution. Their sound doesn't carry far and as far as frequency range is concerned, phones typically fail to impress.  Thankfully,...

Extremely affordable Water resistant 24-hour battery life

Average sound quality Anemic bass Not loud enough outdoors

The Anker SoundCore 2 offers a ton of features for the price like water resistance, great battery life and a rugged body. While its sound quality leaves something to to be desired, it’s hard to think of a better speaker for under $50/£50.

Anker SoundCore 2 review

 

Anker's SoundCore 2 is a popular mini Bluetooth speaker on Amazon. It costs $35 (£42 in the UK, AU$99 in Australia), plays pretty loud for its small size, is water-resistant and has excellent battery life. That's all good -- and the SoundCore 2 is a...

Anker are best known for their power packs for on-the-go top ups of portable devices, but now they are getting in on the act with portable wireless speakers as well. So are they as good with audio products as they are with their portable chargers? Find...
