  • AUKEY 16W Bluetooth Speaker with Enhanced bass - review

    One of the best selling bluetooth speakers out there Amazon, how much closer to the best sounding speaker?  Built for outdoors, still clean and open audio quality. Play very loud than you expect, thanks to the dual passive subwoofers that pushes out plenty of air.

    Note to bass lovers / heads: 2 passive radiators (or passive drivers) packed into such a small speaker, part of the frequencies under 100Hz translates into cabin vibration - you can feel it while holding in hand. I think the bass goes down to 75Hz or so and prominent due to the air displacement via passive radiators.

    Comes pre-charged, effortless pairing without any extra complications - put Adele 25 96kHz/24bit digital album for a spin. Most accurate voice I can think of to test the openness of an Amp / Speaker combination. All the richness, sheer power, emotions and vocal colour reflected through the AUKEY SK-S1 speakers without much difference comparing to other sources like Sonos Play:5 and ATH-M50X headphones except the reproduction of lower frequencies. All you need to do is to make sure, the speaker is in your ear level and has some isolation between speaker and desk.

    Moved on to some incredible remixes of Julia Michaels "Issues", you will get that sense of bass even in lower levels and goes all the way up without any distortion. But 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.
    Dual Passive driver helps in lower frequencies
    Back to technology, a self contained tiny speaker with beautiful matt silver finish. Comes with Bluetooth 4.0 and handsfree connectivity. 4000mAh battery gives you plenty of juice for several hours of playing. Bass reflex / passive radiators gives you bit of extra bass that you seek.

    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 a wonderful look and finish. 4000mAh battery is not the best in the class but just enough for 8 hours or so. Please check out the pictures if you wish to see a closer real life look.
