About this deal

The time for a full charge is specified at between 3.5 and 4 hours; a USB-C charging cable is provided but you'll need a 5V/2A wall charger. The power light flashes red once the battery is running low and a steady red when charging. The unit turns off once the battery is fully charged. Anker Soundcore 3 review: Verdict Sound quality of the Anker SoundCore 2 is average, though miles better than playing music from your smartphone speaker. While sound quality is nicely balanced, bass sounds anemic at times with electronic dance music and hip-hop. Highs are good but exhibit distortion when the volume is pushed.

Build quality is excellent and it’s nice to know that its rugged body and water resistant design can withstand the abuse of being outdoors. Just be sure to keep in mind that the SoundCore 2 is only IPX5 water resistant, which means it’ll survive splashes but can’t be dunked into a pool like the UE Wonderboom.

This Anker Soundcore 3 portable Bluetooth speaker delivers a big sound at a bargain price

That said, the SoundCore 2 is still worthy of your attention. It’s very much at the super-affordable end of the market and, thanks to the IPX7 rating, it’ll take some pretty serious abuse. Visually, it’s inoffensive compared to some of its competitors – classy even. Stereo Sound: soundcore 3’s stereo sound makes your music sound more immersive and pumps up the atmosphere in both indoors and outdoor spaces. Bluetooth speakers are generally rechargeable speakers that are able to connect with audio-playing devices, like smartphones, iPad, computers, etc.

Upgraded Driver Technology: soundcore 3 Bluetooth speaker has dual drivers with 100% pure titanium diaphragms that extend treble up to 40kHz and minimize distortion. Compared to similarly sized speakers, the Anker SoundCore 2 sounds strained, like its amp isn’t powerful enough to drive its speakers. In insolation, the SoundCore 2 sounds quite good but bass lovers will be wanting more. Charged fully on opening the box. After approximately 8 hrs play time it just stopped working. No lights, nothing. Connected charger - nothing.

A cheap speaker that can put up with your abuse

Battery life is an incredible 24 hours, which is much longer than much of the competition. For example, the UE Wonderboom only lasts 10 hours and the Bose SoundLink Color 2 lasts just 8 hours. Dynamics are also an issue; Lethal’s bolshy tone is present, but the detail required to fully deliver his emotional skittishness isn’t quite there. There’s a diminished space between notes – an absence of the kind of layers that would allow our ears to celebrate nuances between vocals and instruments. Verdict

Enhanced Bass: Dual passive radiators and upgraded BassUp technology work in tandem to pump up the bass in real-time—even at low volumes. Just visible behind the mesh speaker grille on the front of the cabinet are two circular drivers to handle stereo left and right high frequencies. These silver-colored drivers feature titanium cones, which is a rigid material found in popular speaker designs for the way it drives soundwaves forwards. Soundcore claims to be capable of delivering high frequencies up to 40kHz — this is a bold statement indeed, given this is beyond twice that of human hearing capabilities.For sound, the JBL Go 2 is a better option, but the Anker SoundCore 2 surpasses it for features and battery life. And if the microphone is important to you, then this is a little money well spent. You don't have permission to access "http://www.argos.co.uk/browse/technology/speakers/c:815763/" on this server.
