When you talk about some budget-friendly item, one brand which you can’t forget is the Amazon Basics line of products. People have a lot of great things to say about them and looking at the customer reviews which are usually over 4-5 stars and prices which are dirt cheap; these are something which you can’t skip. This particular variant is priced at about $40 which roughly translates to about 2,700 INR. This particular variant is a small version, and there is also a large one which will cost you more. But everything in the smaller version is well built for the $40 which you are paying. On the front, there is a tough protective grill which helps protect the two drivers on the front and the woofer at the rear respectively. The buttons up top are also extremely tactile and clicky, and there is also a tiny LED light which indicates when you are charging, etc.
In terms of battery life, the AmazonBasics Portable Bluetooth Speaker offers a very great 15 hours of playback. The Bluetooth connectivity is also great, and it will work just fine. In terms of sound quality, starting off with the base, the speakers at the back does help the speakers a bit here. We are not looking at sub base levels, but we are still beating others. And for those songs which are not base heavy, this speaker is decent for the price at the moderate volume. But again at high volume, there is a slight distortion. It not bad but a bit noticeable and hence a heads up on that. Now listening to the mid-range, the vocals are pretty clear and the instruments being pronounced are petty good. As for the highs, although the speaker is loud enough for small rooms, it didn’t sound all that bad. So overall for the price, lets say at 80-percent volume, it does great.
