Oh my god! That`s huge. Yes! You know: people have taken “Youtube” as a career. They are even investing for buying equipment like – portable speakers.
Now the questions are:
How loud is your portable speaker?
Is it fulfilling your demand with the budget?
Are you satisfied with the speaker?
Think….. Think…. Bingo! If the answer is “no”, you have come to the right place. I am going to save your money by showing the best portable speakers under 50$. Lets start by answering the question.
What are the reasons for using a portable speaker?
There are five strong reasons for using a portable speaker.
Bluetooth speakers are electric efficient:
Without pairing hassles, Bluetooth speakers are electric efficient. These devices can last 10-12 hours after a certain amount of charge. This means your electric bills are landing into a safe arena.
The second reason is, these devices are lightweight. You can take it anywhere you want. It takes a little amount of space in your tiny travel bag. So it will not be your pain in the ball.
Easy to use:
One of the primary reasons for using these portable speakers are; you can efficiently operate them. No matter what your OS is, you can easily adjust the volume from your cell phone. Even you can settle the sound by using your fingers. It’s kind of one tap adjustment.
A perfect space saver:
I will say it is a blessing for us. Wherever I go, I can manage a little space for my tiny speakers. It can speak up about existence from any small place.
A perfect stereo sound within budget is not now a dream. Many famous brands are now making affordable portable-speakers. Yes, “affordable speakers,” that is what I am going to write from the next step.
The first speaker is heavier than Anker. In that case, Anker is lightweight and easy to connect. I did not find any pairing problem during my use. Plus, I noticed several benefits of this portable speaker.
The first one is the battery backup. It took around three hours for a full charge and supported almost 15 hours without a break. If you give a pause in listening, the battery will last nearly 24 hours.
Next is the sound. I liked the proper balance; as a result, it could represent the music in stereo mood well. But the frustrating thing is; the bass is not loud. Otherwise, everything is okay.
Anker offers more exciting benefits. For instance, this device has a fantastic drop resistance. It is because of the sturdy materials like: rubber coating. This unique cover has the drop like resistance.
Like the safety, this device can be connected with Alexa supported device. This means the built-in mic will recognize your voice. How sweet!!
That’s all I liked in short. So, if you are planing to make your acoustic guitar review in outdoor, grab this new opportunity. Make your video more exciting.
Some of the reviews about Oontz Angle seemed biased to me. Why? They said this portable speaker is not up to the mark. Sorry! I could not agree with that opinion. That`s why I decided to buy two different models of this brand.
Here is review of first model: Oontz is a third-generation Bluetooth speaker. The device can support up to 14 hours for three to four hours of charging. It is good enough to take outdoor for filming acoustic shoots. During the shooting time, the sound stays online.
I did not find any distortion after raising the volume of 100%. That’s the best thing so far from a cheap portable speaker. Oontz can be connected from 100 ft distance. This means you can keep it in a convenient place for taking close or long shots.
Another thing I like is waterproof technology. You can film your acoustic cover in the bank of ocean. The wave splash can not harm your sound system -it is completely protected.
Now the negative things. I noticed the pairing problem on some devices. It happened because of the Bluetooth standard because this third-generation speaker can connect easily with the updated Bluetooth device.
So, if you need further information regarding the speaker, take a look at amazon. I hope it will help you.
This device needs an updated Bluetooth driver to connect easily.
Moving on to the second model. As I mentioned earlier, people wrote a bit of biased review regarding this brand. So, I want to break it down finally here.
The first thing is the differences between portable and ultra-portable speakers. It depends on battery and sound quality. For example, ultra-portable speaker can support up to 20 hours for 3 to 4 hours of charging. Its good enough for filming electric guitar tutorials.
Oh my god! that`s not the end! The sound quality is better than the earlier one. Let me break it down; why?. The manufacturer has included an updated passive bass radiator. This radiator can boost the sound better than an ordinary speaker.
Every instrument’s sound is clear and balanced but not loud enough. I will prefer this to take the single outdoor shoots. If you are a solo artist who sings with a guitar, then consider this for outdoor shoots.
To know more about this portable speaker, visit the Amazon link. It will definitely guide you to the right product.
Now the final pick is the DOSS soundbox. I won’t say it is a perfect one for filming. But a decent choice for indoor shooting. Why? There are numerous reasons for saying it is ideal for indoor use.
If I start with the sound, then; the 360-degree stereo sound can give you a perfect synchronizing facility. It is loud and distortion-free. I even tried it on 100% volume. It sounds pretty good on that.
Next is connectivity. You can connect your cellphone through Bluetooth, USB, or can insert a SD card inside the speaker. For that, Doss ensured a diversified connectivity and operation facilities. To operate the playing options, you can use the Oontz touch-pad.
The touch-pad is smooth and responds faster than you think. I liked their controlling options. It’s user-friendly. On the other hand, I did not like was the beep sound. When the battery power starts to reduce, it irritates me each time.
In a word, it is excellent and suitable for indoor shooting. To get more detailed information, visit the Amazon link.
The touchpad is smooth.
Fourteen hours of battery back up.
I did not like the beep sound when the battery is low.
Buying guide for portable speakers:
Now, it’s time to share the ultimate cheat list to pick the right portable speakers. You can also consider it as a Bluetooth speaker buying guide. Why? This will help you to choose the right portable speakers, not only for indoor or outdoor, but also for listening with friends. So, the guide is:
No matter what your purposes are? You need a balanced sound. To ensure a balanced sound, I will recommend you to check the requirements. For instance, I need an excellent EQ balance. Since I am a fingerstyle artist, I need better sound clarity.
During the filming time, an excellent EQ balance helps me to sync my pre-recorded instrument easily.
Design and durability:
As the portable speaker will be your regular friend, you need to check the design and durability. I won’t recommend any plan because everyone has their taste. So, it’s better to write about a feature that can help you to keep taste on the top. Here it is:
Drop resistance means ultimate durability. In that case a rubber-coating can give you a best protection.
Finally, you should look on the weatherproof feature. Nowadays, many portable speaker comes with waterproof certification. So, consider this before buying the portable speaker. If most of the shots are taken outdoors, then this is the primary thing to consider.
To conclude the entire discussion in a few sentences, I will start by saying; I tried to give an honest review for the fresh YouTubers. I hope the reviews will help them to pick the best portable speakers under $50. So, best of luck for your upcoming projects.
