1. Marshall Kilburn II

marshall-kilburn-II
Overall Best Pick
  • Suitable for all genres of music listening
  • A vintage design that feels nostalgic
  • Impressive battery life

Marshall is one of its kind of UK based audio equipment manufacturers in the world.

Their products with a retro look that delivers exceptional sound quality is a dream come true for audiophiles around the globe.

The Kilburn II from Marshall is a boxy shaped wireless Bluetooth speaker that features a fully replaceable battery inside.

Design and Build Quality

At the first glance of the Marshall Kilburn II wireless Bluetooth speaker, you’ll feel at home with the design.

The same design that adored our old style radio which had a prominent grille upfront.

We can’t emphasise how cute and retro it looks in person rather than in the photos. This speaker is sure to be a priceless item on your home decor for sure.

The leather fabric coated interior chassis looks plush and premium. The detachable leather handle adds charm to the overall build of this product.

What we liked about this design is the rotating knobs for volume and bass/treble controls. The ON/OFF button is a toggle switch that works flawlessly.

Even the supplied Aux-in cable has gold plated connectors and is coiled.

The company has polished the finer details which normally most of the companies prefer to leave untouched if not broken.

Speaker and Sound Quality

Behind the huge grill upfront grilled 3-speaker set up constituting a large 80mm driver subwoofer coupled with two 20mm driver tweeters.

The woofer lets out a deep bass that is punchy and natural at the same time.

The tweeters produce clean and crisp highs and pronounced vocals that don’t fade with the onset of bass.

This wireless speaker unit gets sufficiently loud. It can be used for parties or during an outdoor camping.

Beware that this product isn’t water-resistant, take utmost care not to let water get inside.

The really rich bass and crisp treble make this device suitable for listening to any type of music.

Battery Life

Yes, it is. Marshall Kilburn II can last up to 20 hours on a single charge. In our tests, we found that the device lasted for about 18 hours with 60% volume from the beginning.

The one peculiar thing about this wireless Bluetooth speaker is that it uses a full-size AC charger to juice up the battery and not the traditional micro USB.

What it means is that, while you’re outdoors, you can’t charge this beast with your power bank.

However, the battery life is so impressive that this lack of micro USB charging isn’t a dealbreaker.

Verdict

If you are inclined to have the best possible sound output from a portable Bluetooth speaker priced under Rs.20,000, Marshall Kilburn II is the way to go.

With its deep, punchy bass and crystal clear vocals with tingling highs, this wireless speaker is suitable for listening to almost all genres of music in its full glory.

2. Harman Kardon Go + Play

harman-kardon-go +Play
Runner-Up Pick
  • Suited for use in large parties
  • Excellent punchy bass
  • Separate amplifier for speakers

Harman Kardon is a world-renowned speaker and acoustic related equipment manufacturer which is a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Ltd.

The Go+ Play from Harman is a Bluetooth speaker with a rather unique design which stands out from the rest of the speakers available in the market.

Design and Build Quality

The Harman Kardon Go+ Play has a cylindrical dome-shaped design with a metallic handle up top.

The whole front and back of this wireless Bluetooth speaker are covered with a strong fabric material which looks and feels nice.

When viewed from certain angles, this product has its share of resemblance with the old age boombox.

The build quality to speak about is top-notch. Being a premium luxury Bluetooth speaker, the components used in the construction are of high quality.

The front grill of this Bluetooth speaker is removable. With the grill removed, the raw look of this speaker gives it a more masculine look.

Speaker and Sound Quality

The Harman Kardon Go Play+ comes with a 90mm woofer driver and two 20mm tweeters in the same configuration that we saw earlier on Marshall Kilburn.

The clean mids and crisp highs compensate for the punch rich bass in a perfect ratio that provides a soothing yet thumping audio output out of this speaker.

This wireless Bluetooth speaker gets so loud that you might never want to listen to the songs with this if you live in an apartment unless you want your neighbours to knock at your door.

At high volumes, there are no distortions for the sounds from either the woofer or the tweeters.

Harman has provided a 25W amplifier for each of the speakers to squeeze even the last bit of acoustic richness.

Miscellaneous

Harman has put so much effort in designing this product into perfection.

Even the welcome tones that the speakers let out during the startup and the pairing tones seems a right step towards the enhanced user experience.

The metallic handle that arches above the speaker chassis, although feels a bit slippery, add to the flair of a luxury wireless Bluetooth speaker.

If you want even more sound (no way!), Harman allows you to pair two of its speakers together for better spatial sound separation and immersive listening experience.

What we did not like about this Bluetooth speaker was its weight. The Harman Kardon Go + weighs about 3.43Kg.

While it’s still perfectly portable, some users may not have the liking towards carrying a heavy speaker around.

Battery Life

Nothing in this world is perfect. So does the battery life of Harman Kardon Go+ Play.

This wireless Bluetooth speaker lasted for a good eight hours of continuous music playback on our tests.

Although eight hours for the quality of sound this beast produced is adequate, we feel that the battery life is just average as all the competitor products in this list exhibit double-digit battery life.

Verdict

What defines the Harman Kardon Go+ Play wireless Bluetooth speaker can be summarized in three words – precise, punchy and distortion-free sound.

If you don’t mind the heft, this device is one of the best Bluetooth speakers in the market right now which delivers excellent sound quality without compromising on either the build quality or battery life.

3. JBL Flip 5

jbl-flip-5
Best all Round Performer
  • Powerful, sound loud output
  • 12 hours of battery life
  • Excellent stereo stage separation

JBL Flip 5 is the latest Flip series portable Bluetooth speaker from JBL priced well under Rs.10,000.

The Flip series is known for its build quality and powerful sound output and the Flip 5 doesn’t disappoint on that front.

Design and Build Quality

The JBL Flip 4 was a cylinder. Well to be precise, a loved-by-everyone kind of cylinder. We’re happy that Flip 5 decided to keep the same form factor intact.

The nylon fabric is awesome as always and feels very tough. The control buttons are a bit raised this time, giving awesome tactile feedback when pressed.

We feel that the JBL Flip 5 weighs more than the Flip 5. That’s our thought and even then, this cute Bluetooth speaker is a joy to carry around.

Speaker and Sound Quality

We were impressed by how well the Flip 4 sounded. The Flip 5 sounds even better. The bass is more pronounced this time around. You’ll feel the punch for sure.

The mids and highs are clear and sound pure. We didn’t notice any kind of distortion even at maximum volume levels.

But we did feel a tiny lack of detailing in the sound of certain instruments. Not a deal-breaker though as most of us won’t even notice the difference at all.

Water Resistance

The JBL Flip 5 comes with a standard splash and spill resistance. This time around the company has added an IPX7 certification to the bunch.

Now you can submerge this wireless speaker up to 1m of water for 30 minutes without any damage to this product.

Beware, this speaker doesn’t float. So better drop somewhere you can easily pick it up.

Miscellaneous

The JBL Connect feature has received an upgrade on the Flip 5 Bluetooth speaker. You can now pair up to 100 speakers at once. Yes, a hundred.

The only downside of this feature is that now the Connect + feature isn’t backwards compatible.

In short, sweet words, you can only connect a connect + certified device to the Flip 5 and not the other way around.

The signal reception is exceptionally good. We were able to pair up the device and roam around the office without any break in the signal.

Battery Life

Fret not, the battery life is pretty good with the JBL Flip 5. Our device lasted for about 15 hours of continuous music playback on a single charge. If you’re listening at full volume, expect this to drop significantly.

Verdict

The overall performance from the JBL Flip 5 is phenomenal making it the best portable Bluetooth speaker priced under Rs.10,000.

The excellent sound quality coupled with the superb battery life and build quality make this product one of the best in this budget.

The big volume control buttons adorn the front section of this Bluetooth speaker. These buttons are quite stiff to press when new but you will get used to it after a while.

Speakers and Sound Quality

The UE Boom 2 LE consists of 2 x 45mm speaker drivers which sound very loud and clear – even at maximum volume without any distortions whatsoever.

These two drivers are supplemented by two 45mm x 80mm passive bass radiators for rich, deep bass notes.
