Best Portable Speakers for a Crazy Audiophile
Headphones are great to get the best sound balance out of your music. But sometimes it would be great to share your music with the people around you and for that you need speakers!
Of course lugging around a big set of speakers just to display the best side of your favourite tunes is impossible. So why not invest in a portable speaker that will display the best side of your music possible?
If you are an audiophile, here are some of the best portable speakers that we have found that are sure to suit your needs!
JBL Charge 3
A portable, waterproof speaker from JBL that is affordable, it is the perfect set of speakers to bring to the beach or to a pool party. The speakers do sound well rounded with good balance, though there are times when you may need to turn up the volume to get the best out of it.
The speaker is available on Lazada from RM629.00 (RM606.98 after cashback).
JBL Pulse 2
Want a light show to go with your music? Then, you will love this compact little speaker from JBL that delivers a bass punch that is not overwhelming. With orchestral tracks, the higher register strings, brass and vocals still come out crisp while the lower register instruments are given some extra body.
The speaker is available on 11street from RM559.18 (RM550.79 after cashback).
Bose SoundLink Revolve Bluetooth Speaker
It is a sleek portable speaker that is both water and shock proof. Don’t be fooled by its small size as the speaker plays music louder with a bass response that is better than the JBL Pulse 2. Its cylindrical design ensures that music delivery is omnidirectional.
The speaker is available on 11street from RM894.88 (RM881.45 after cashback).
Bang and Olufsen A1 Portable Bluetooth Speaker
This dome-shaped speaker can easily be mistaken for a smoke detector or a pretty necklace with its leather carrying strap. The speaker’s strength lies in how lifelike its midrange sounds, but EDM and complicated rock tracks tend to sound a little uneven.
The speaker is available on Lazada from RM1,125.00 (RM1,085.62 after cashback).
This speaker is perfect for outdoor use due to its extremely loud playback. Its mids are relatively warm and clear, and bass has no issues. While the highs do tend to distort, just lower the volume and it sounds great!
The speaker is available on 11street from RM1,186.72 (RM1,168.92 after cashback).
Harman Kardon Go + Play
Most portable speakers tend to be small and compact, not so with this speaker that is the size of a boombox. Its size makes sense as it delivers a bass that is powerful, but does not ruin the sound. In fact, the rest of the sounds are clean and clear!
The speaker is available on 11street from RM1,242.08 (RM1,223.45 after cashback).
Marshall Acton Bluetooth Speaker
A classy, vintage-looking portable speaker, it comes with both Bluetooth capabilities and a jack connector. The sound quality delivered through both the jack and Bluetooth is the same: rich, loud and clear. However, the speaker is rather heavy for its size, so you may not want to take it everywhere.
The speaker is available on Lazada from RM1,189.00 (RM1,147.39 after cashback).
Bang and Olufsen A2 Active Portable Bluetooth Speaker
Coming from a company that is known for making stylish products, this speaker has a curved polymer shell with NATO-style canvas handles that makes it look elegant and rugged. The speaker delivers clear and powerful sound quality that is balanced. If you are looking for a bass-heavy speaker, this is not the speaker you would want.
The speaker is available on Lazada from RM1,671.91 (RM1,613.39 after cashback).
Marshall Woburn Bluetooth Speaker
Marshall has been known for delivering quality speakers wrapped in a classy, vintage package and this speaker is no different. It is designed to be loud and has multiple audio inputs, aside from Bluetooth connectivity. High trebles, low bass and natural midrange sounds are no problem for this speaker!
The speaker is available on 11street from RM2,124.84 (RM2,092.97 after cashback).
So get any of these awesome speakers and share your music with the world!
