What customers say about "Key Specs"
Anker SoundCore 2 (AK-A3105014) Bluetooth Speaker
  • Bluetooth connects perfectly to everything and has a decent range too.
  • 66ft Bluetooth Range: I threw my phone as far away as I could and it still connected.
  • The bluetooth works perfectly with a good range, so I can leave my i phone playing music safely tucked away in a drawer.
  • It has a pretty decent range, and has a receiver strong enough to deal with internal walls, wooden desks, and other Bluetooth devices flooding bandwidth.
  • Bluetooth range was not as far as they advertised, the sound start statistic sound when the phone was about 7-8 m as i was walking around my kitchen.
JBL Flip 4 Waterproof Portable Bluetooth Speaker
  • The battery life is amazing and I believe it does indeed last for the time stated here, if not longer.
  • It is robust, has a great sound, and the battery life is pretty good too.
  • The battery life is good, I've only once used it from full charge to empty and it almost lasted the 12 hours stated.
  • Battery life 12-15 hours. We have it sailing but haven’t had to test its water resistance yet! Sound is excellent and I can walk round the house and down both ends of the garden without losing it
  • The battery life is shockingly bad. A full charge lasts about two hours when streaming music from my phone...

What customers say about "Features"
Anker SoundCore 2 (AK-A3105014) Bluetooth Speaker
  • I’ve been enjoying the rich bass of my streamed music ( Spotify ) in the bathroom.
  • The bass is sick, and with good songs you can feel the bass on full volume which is sick.
  • The sound is clear and quite detailed, the bass is full and deep.
  • When playing songs with heavy bass, it can start vibrating my desk which shows the bass is strong in this speaker.
  • IPX7, waterproof, so ideal for a shower or bathroom environment.
JBL Flip 4 Waterproof Portable Bluetooth Speaker

What customers say about "Interfaces"

  • Battery life is excellent and charges with micro USB.
  • Battery life is fantastic, well constructed and charges via micro usb which is an advantage over the bose and the bose charger is big and bulky.
  • Good sound, good battery, good range. Unfortunately the USB charge port on this seems a quite fragile.
  • Battery life is fantastic, well constructed and charges via micro usb which is an advantage over the bose and the bose charger is big and bulky.
JBL Flip 4 Waterproof Portable Bluetooth Speaker
  • The charging cycle doesn’t last long and the speaker comes with a nice USB cable for charging.
  • A big plus is that it doesn't have the additional weight/headache of batteries as it's usb chargeable!
  • Connection via USB works without problems, the battery saves a charge for a long time.
  • I wish the charger came with a plug in for a wall and not just the USB cable.
  • The micro usb connector is just too weak or doesn't give enough support and ends up breaking on the unit.
