The Bottom Line The Anker Soundcore Trance is a moderate to large sized Bluetooth speaker that boasts over 100dB of volume at a very reasonable price. The Trance is versatile (and waterproof) enough to carry with you on camping trips or keeping at home for parties, where the LED effects can be a really fun touch. We love the Trance so much we've recommended it as the value choice on our article about the loudest Bluetooth speakers currently on the market. Check Price T
The relationship between volume and sound quality and understanding the trade-offs. I think everyone can agree that things more often sound better when played louder, and I don’t just mean in a party or concert environment when adrenaline and emotion become part of the equation; I’m talking about loudness within a private listening environment using headphones, earbuds, or your home speaker system. Several things happen when music is turned up to a higher volume for many people. The...
As speaker technology continues to advance, we seem to be increasingly interested in ‘loudness’ and how it is achieved. It has been theorized that we favor louder sounds over quieter ones, especially when listening to music, and some researchers suggest that a song played louder than the previous one will actually sound better. There is no evidence to support this, however, it did fuel the ongoing ‘loudness wars’ that took place over several decades and no longer has much relevance as streaming
The Bottom Line Despite its fairly unassuming appearance and appealing price range, the Soundcore Motion Boom is able to go head to head, and even edge out other popular speakers in its space.

Like many portable Bluetooth speakers, JBL offers speaker-pairing capabilities, allowing multiple speakers to be linked together to either form a stereo pair or a larger network of speakers to take your house party to next level. JBL makes use of two speaker-pairing protocols to make this possible, Connect Plus and PartyBoost. The PartyBoost is an evolution of the Connect Plus feature which became standard in later JBL models such as the Flip 5 and Boombox 2. The primary benefit of the Part

The Bottom Line Despite playing in a competitive space in the market, the HD77 from Treblab is able to go toe-to-toe with bigger brands in performance, despite its affordable price point. Compared to the HD7, the younger brother of the HD77 - you're going to be getting a whole lot more volume, wider response range in the bass frequencies as well as both shorter charging time and longer battery life. Overall it's tough not to recommend the HD77 as an affordable portable Bluetooth speaker.
The Bottom Line The Treblab HD7 offers a compact Bluetooth speaker solution that is great for travel or bicycle mounting. There are some trade-offs to be made with the HD7 though. You're not going to get the same bass response as some larger Bluetooth speakers, however, the mids and highs do well to present an overall good quality audio experience. At just over 6" long, you're not going to have problems finding space for this speaker. Check Price We recently took a look

Before we jump into a discussion about Bluetooth codecs, what they are, and why they matter, we need to do a quick review of how Bluetooth works. Feel free to check out our detailed Bluetooth guide if you want to know more. How does Bluetooth Work? Bluetooth operates using what we refer to as Ultra High Frequencies (UHF for short). This frequency range is situated in the range of 300 MegaHertz (MHz) to 3 GigaHertz (GHz). This frequency band is known as the Decimetre Band as the waveform

The radio as we know it has unfortunately become an obsolete appliance in our homes as other technologies have taken over; however, it is still commonly used in our vehicles. It is known for its primary purpose: connecting to AM or FM frequencies to wirelessly stream content in real-time by interpreting a radio station’s satellite dish through the receiver antenna on your radi
