Criteria

Sylvania SP328

Any good portable Bluetooth speaker should be, well, easily portable. It should not be too heavy to carry or transport. Since you may use it in places where there is no nearby power source, the battery should give you several hours of playing time before having to be recharged. As far as sound quality, any good speaker should produce a clear sound. Even at high volumes, the sound should not get distorted. It is also nice to get a good bass sound from the speaker.

Pros

Sylvania SP328-Black

One of the great things about this speaker is its budget-friendly price. It is always nice to get a high-quality product without having to break the bank! The blue LED lights look great, especially at nighttime.

It is easily portable and light in weight.

The speaker produces a clear sound and gets very loud; enough to fill a large room. Users say that it performs better than some more expensive speakers. The battery lasts a long time. Based on user reviews, the battery can last anywhere from 6-10 hours depending on how high the volume is. Some users have claimed that they even got 13-hours of playing time before having to recharge.

Cons

There are a few common complaints about this product. The cord that comes with the speaker is quite short so when you are charging it, you have to put it right by the power source or use an extension cable.

Although this speaker gets loud, it is not suitable to fill large outdoor areas with sound. It is best used indoors or to fill a small area with music outside. When played at high volumes, the sound starts to get distorted. The bass isn’t extremely powerful on this speaker.

Some users have also complained that it doesn’t have a wide connectivity range, so you have to put your Bluetooth device very close to the speaker for it to connect.

Conclusion

Overall this is a great product for such a low price. If you want a portable Bluetooth speaker to primarily use outside or to use in large areas, you will want to look for something else. Or if a loud thumping bass is important to you, this speaker is not for you. But if you want a good, inexpensive portable Bluetooth speaker to use at home or for small outdoor gatherings, this is a great option. Use it around the house, for an outdoor barbecue, or even take it along to the office to enjoy your tunes.
