Overall Best Pick
  • AptX audio support
  • Excellent bass response
  • IPX5 water resistant

LG is one of the major players which has been absent from the Bluetooth speaker market in the country, but not anymore.

The LG XBoom Go PK5 is a premium mid-range Bluetooth speaker competing with the likes of JBL Flip 4 and UE Boom 2 for the top spot.

Design and Build Quality

The LG Xboom Go PK5 is built like a tank to ensure extreme durability.

The chassis is made from very hard plastic material with a slightly textured finish on top.

Even if this Bluetooth speaker trips and falls from your hand accidentally, it can take some beating without any damage.

The front side of the speaker features a meshed metallic grill and the top of rear sides covered with a faux mesh texture for the aesthetic appeal of the gadget.

The control buttons are located on the top portion of the speaker and come with a LED status indicator for each control.

The battery charge status indicating LED is placed beside the buttons.

Speaker and Sound Quality

The LG XBoom Go PK5 comes equipped with dual 45mm speakers with bass radiators on each side.

These speakers produced excellent quality sound output for the price, rich with really deep bass notes and impressive mids and highs.

LG has partnered with Meridian technology, a pioneer in the audio field for tuning the speakers to deliver the best possible sound experience on a budget speaker.

Since the speakers are oriented towards the listener, a complete 360-degree uniform sound throw isn’t yet possible, but the loudness of the speaker makes up for it.

Connectivity

This portable Bluetooth speaker has Bluetooth v4.2 protocol for low energy (LE) wireless connectivity.

It also comes with AptX support for high fidelity wireless music playback.

AptX codec by Qualcomm provides CD-quality wireless Bluetooth music streaming characterized by high fidelity low and high-end notes.

If you already own a smartphone with AptX support, the LG XBoom Go PK5 will be an excellent addon accessory.

Miscellaneous

The XBoom Go PK5 can be used outdoors in all weather conditions without any fear, thanks to the IPX5 certification.

Even if the device is submerged under 1 ft of water for 30 minutes, it will still work the same as before.

This device comes with a one-touch smart assistant feature which when pressed activates the phone’s inbuilt voice assistant.

Battery Life

The LG XBoom Go PK5 is powered by a large 5200mAh Li-ion battery which is rated to give you about 18 hours of music playback on a single charge.

Verdict

LG XBoom PK5 with its excellent quality sound output including the AptX support, this is one of the best Bluetooth speakers under the budget of Rs.10,000.

2. JBL Flip 4

jbl-flip-4
Runner-Up Pick
  • Best for beach/poolside parties
  • Excellent build quality
  • Loud sound output

The JBL Flip 3 was our best pick in the Bluetooth speakers under Rs.5,000 list.

This time we are glad to include the much more improved version of that awesome wireless Bluetooth speaker in this list.

Design and Build Quality

The JBL Flip 3 was a cylinder. Well to be precise, a loved-by-everyone kind of cylinder. We’re happy that Flip 4 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 personally feel that the JBL Flip 4 weighs more than the Flip 3. 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 3 sounded. The Flip 4 sounds even better. The bass is more pronounced this time around. You’ll definitely 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 4 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 4 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 Flip 4 with either a Flip 4 or newer device from the JBL stable.

The voice call is another area where we faced certain issues. While attending calls within 5 feet distance, we kept on hearing echoes. This is uncomfortable, to say the least.

However, 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 actually pretty good with the JBL Flip 4. Our device lasted for about 11 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 4 is phenomenal.

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

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.

This Bluetooth speaker comes with a rubber pad in the bottom to keep the speaker from tipping off while blaring out the loud sound output from the speakers inside.

The input ports are located at the back covered by a rubber flap to ensure water resistance.

Speakers and Sound Quality

The dual speakers on this Bluetooth speaker come with the signature JBL sound profile.

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

The bass radiators on both the sides deliver rich and deep bass, which improves the overall sound stage of this speaker.

If you are someone who loves a bit of extra bass in your music, the JBL Charge 3 is the perfect choice for a budget around Rs.10000.

Miscellaneous

The JBL Charge 3 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.

The JBL connect feature has received an upgrade on the Charge 3 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.

Voice calls on this device are perfectly audible and the noise and echo cancelling microphone deliver excellent hands-free voice calling experience.

The signal reception is also 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 actually pretty good with the JBL charge 3. The whopping 6000mAh Li-ion battery inside lasts for about 20 hours of playback time on single charge.

This Bluetooth speaker also doubles up as a portable power bank which can be used to charge other devices such as smartphone via the integrated USB output.

Verdict!

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

Design and build quality

Speakers and sound quality

Loudness levels are sufficient and the vocals are delivered crisp and clean even at maximum volume levels.

The frequency response range is a bit narrow, which results in the slightly less accurate bass output.

Connectivity options

Apart from the Bluetooth v4.1, the Saregama Carvaan comes with a USB port.

This will let you play your favourite songs directly from a USB drive.

The built-in FM radio ensures you have alternative listening choices when tired with the built-in 5000 Hindi songs (which you won’t).

Battery life

This portable Bluetooth speaker is powered by a 2200mAh Li-ion battery.

On continuous usage, the Saregama Carvaan will last for up to 5 hours on a single charge.
