  • Bluedio AS-BT Stereo Bluetooth Speakers

    I’ve seen and used a variety of bluetooth speakers from Amazon, at least one always goes through the testing environment every week. This speaker looks like the coolest gadget that I’ve seen for some time, at least from external look. The speaker has dual 5 watts speaker with a passive radiator.

    Note to bass lovers / heads: This is again a small speaker, more treble focussed sound, there is no active separate bass driver, but the passive drivers gives bit of bass and power. The bass goes down to 120Hz or so, but it would have helped a little more with more powerful amp. Still if you keep on a wooden surface the bass resonates and enhances slightly more. I think it’s also down to the company what sonic signature they want to get across to customer. Surely Bluedio wants crisp clear highs more.

    Sits beautifully on desk, may not be everyones taste but definitely trendy. Outside is fully covered with prints / writings. In the box a Micro USB charging cable and 3.5mm cable is included. Bluedio always had the reputation of supplying good quality micro USB and audio cable.

    Comes pre-charged, pairing up takes just less than 15 seconds or so - put Beyoce Lemonade full album for a spin. I’ve heard this recently on many different systems, so easy to compare the aspects. All the richness, sheer power, emotions and vocal colour coupled with the modern instruments and techniques used in the album can put any speakers to real test. Bluedio AS-BT speaker held up okay with good audio reproduction. There is a sense of feeling that something is missing, but that’s surely because of the size and power of amp - in my opinion. Still very good for the size and price.

    Moved on to some incredible remixes of popular tracks like BBHMM - no distortion at any given point, but lacks bass. The limitation of cabin shows off when you go higher levels. Bass always shines through when you have more room inside the speakers to design with. Passive subwoofer drivers, translates some of the frequency range to non-audible cabin vibration, that you can feel it. Still clean sound output all the way to highest levels.
    Open sound with prominent high frequencies
    Back to technology, the speaker comes with Bluetooth 4.1 profile and supports 3.5mm input as well. There is no NFC pairing included. Bluetooth pairing is almost instant. Not accurately tested, but with heavy listening at loud audio levels the speaker survives though 1-2 days without charging.

    Few tips:

    a. Keep the speaker in ear level for a more open sound.
    b. Just to be aware the limitation of tiny speakers ability of bass reproduction, particularly for those who are bassheads.

    Overall great speakers with an urban look. One thing I forgot to add, Power on alone will not bring the speaker into pairing mode but a long hold on the same button does. Please check out the pictures if you wish to see a closer real life look.

    Bluedio supplied the product for testing and QA purposes and opinion shared is based on my own experience and testing environment / equipments.
