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
BUY FROM AMAZON

Pros

Excellent sound output

Bluetooth v5.0

AptX support

Cons

Feels a bit heavy and bulky

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 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. JBL Flip 5

JBL Flip 5

Runner-up Pick

  • Powerful, sound loud output
  • 12 hours of battery life
  • Excellent stereo stage separation
BUY FROM AMAZON

Pros

Robust build quality

IPX7 waterproof

JBL signature sound

Cons

No easily pocketable

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 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 UE Boom 2 has a 3.5mm Aux-in port for wired speaker connectivity tucked under a flap for ensuring water resistance. 

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 them 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. 

The bass from this speaker is surprisingly enjoyable and overpower neither the vocals nor the higher end treble notes. 

Connectivity Features

The UE Boom 2 LE comes standard with Bluetooth and NFC connectivity. This wireless speaker can be paired up with two source devices at once.

With NFC enabled devices, you can pair the speaker just with a tap. Additionally, there is an AUX-in port for wired connectivity as well.

With the compact size and the plethora of useful features, the JBL Tuner 2 is sure to grab your attention.

Design and Build Quality

The rounded rectangular design is very pleasing to look at, thanks partly to the silver colour.

The speaker mesh grill covers the entire front side with the JBL branding.

There is a small backlit LED display up front that shows important information such as battery remaining, FM station details and the song name.

The buttons are very tactile and offer excellent click response. The retractable telescopic antenna can be folded and kept when not in use.

Speaker and Sound Quality

The JBL Tuner 2 comes with a 5W 40mm driver speaker that delivers decent sound output. 

The bass from this speaker is a bit on the lower side when compared with other products from JBL, but not too much to be a dealbreaker.

The highs and mids are clean and audible even at higher volumes without distortion. For an indoor speaker, the JBL Tuner 2 ticks all the right boxes with relative ease.

Connectivity Features

The FM radio function works very well on this budget Bluetooth speaker. The reception quality is excellent so does the sound output.

The LCD offers a lot of information at a simple glance – detailing the station name, scanned frequency etc.

The 3.5 aux input lets you connect this device with others such as TVs without Bluetooth capability.

Battery Life

BUY FROM AMAZON

The Echo lineup of smart speakers from Amazon is a direct rival to the Smart home assistant speakers from Google. 

The Amazon Echo 4th Gen is an improved version of the original Echo device now with improved sound quality and enhanced connectivity features priced at just Rs.7,999.

Design and Build Quality

The Amazon Echo has a spherical design that looks way cuter than any other of the Bluetooth speakers available in the market. 

The majority of the spherical section is covered by a fabric material with plastic inserts in the bottom section. 

The fit and finish of this smart speaker from Amazon is top-notch and justifies the price. Inside the speaker are a single upward-firing woofer and dual side-firing tweeters. 

The speaker has a LED illumination strip wrapped around at the bottom that glows while in use and it looks good.

At the top, the speaker has a volume adjustment button accompanied by the action and microphone off button.

Speaker and Sound Quality

The Amazon Echo 4th Gen sounds loud compared to the Google Nest. The only problem is when the volume level is at max, the Echo sounds a bit muddy, but compared with the previous generation, there is a significant improvement.

Bass-heavy Bluetooth Speaker

  • Up to 16 hours of battery life
  • IP67 dust and water-resistant
  • Robust build quality
BUY FROM AMAZON

Pros

Google Assistant integration

HD voice for audio calls

Extra bass sound output

Cons

No stereo stage separation

Sony SRS-XB12 is the least expensive model in the company’s revered XtraBass XB lineup.

Banking on the prowess of that extra bit of bass in the music output, the XB-12 is surely a worthy contender in our list of the best Bluetooth speakers.

Design and Build Quality

This device features a compact cylindrical design having a metal grill at the top.

The body is made of plastic with rubber coating around to give it a textured feel. The bottom is made of rubber that stands firm on a plane as well as slightly tilted surfaces.

Sony has cut the cost of the device by compromising on the built quality of the device. The overall fit and finish of the materials used are not up to the mark as some of the other models from Sony.

Also, there isn’t a wall adapter coming with this device so you have to either find one or charge from a USB 2.0 outlet from any other device.

Speaker and Sound Quality

The speaker on this device with a driver size of 46mm faces up to give a 360 degree sound propagation.

There is a passive radiator at the bottom to give that extra bass you’d like to listen to.

The speaker covers a very decent 20 -20,000 Hz response range that will let you listen to all the notes without missing any.

The highs are crisp with deep lows and clean mid. There is no noticeable distortion even when played at high volumes.

Miscellaneous

This portable Bluetooth speaker comes with an inbuilt mic to attend hands-free calls. The mic is sensitive and picks up the voice without any problem.

The sound output through the speakerphone is loud and clear as well.

Connectivity

The Sony SRS-XB12 comes with Bluetooth v4.2 Low Energy protocol that drastically reduces energy consumption when connected with other devices.

The Sony SRS-XB12 features IP67 certification that will protect the device from water splashes.

The device isn’t shockproof though, so think twice before dropping this one on the ground.

Battery Life

This Bluetooth speaker lasts up to 16 hours on a single charge before dying out.

This may vary according to the volume levels but from testing, it lasted for about 12.5 hours at 75% volume.

Verdict

The Sony SRS-XB12 is the best Bluetooth speaker you might crave if the bass is your jam. This Bluetooth speaker packs a punch when it comes to bass-filled music and you will feel the thump when listening to the same.

The excellent sound output combined with the build quality makes this device a great contender in our list.

The vocals sound clean and crisp, complemented by tingling higher-end treble notes. 

This Bluetooth speaker has a built-in microphone for hands-free voice calls and it works just as expected. 

Miscellaneous

    • Hi Tharun!

      For a budget under Rs.30,000, you can check out the Marshall Kilburn II Bluetooth speaker (Link – https://amzn.to/3b1dck7) that does provide one of the best sound output quality in this price bracket.Since this is a water-resistant speaker unit, you can use it both indoors as well as outdoors without much of an issue.

      Now, moving on to your second question, most of the times, speakers does compromise on sound quality when it comes to the maximum loudness. However, speakers from branded companies such as Marshall and Bose show little to no degradation in terms of audio output quality, even at the maximum volume level.

      The Harman Kardon Aura S3 (Link – https://amzn.to/3q5WNyW) is loud enough for indoor parties but fares average when used outdoors when compared with some other speakers available in the market. The 360-degree surround sound is desirable but the coverage area is limited when compared to single side facing speakers.
