The overall arrangement of portability, high-quality audio and battery life makes ‘the Anker SoundCore 2’ one of the best portable Bluetooth speakers with a very cheap price.
Build Quality & Design:
We are trying to explain in details of its build quality and design through this Anker SoundCore 2 review. The Anker SoundCore 2 is an upgrade version of Anker SoundCore. The Company got a good response from the market for Anker SoundCore and decided to leave out it’s lacking that is its low sound and absence of water resistance.
The Anker SoundCore 2 speaker’s view isn’t over showy and has a so-called design that can easily be passed over in a line-up of other speakers. It doesn’t mean it isn’t ugly. The Anker Soundcore 2 is covered by a metallic grille. It also covered in smooth, but grippy rubber. The grille has the name ‘Anker ‘ on it as a big logo and is one of two places branding on this speaker, the other on the back.
The SoundCore 2 is curvy around the edges, reminding us of a swish pencil case, and is available in blue and red as well as the black. Behind its metallic grille, there is pure audio power with enhanced bass thunders from dual 6W neodymium drivers. The SoundCore 2 ensures pounding bass and zero distortion at any volume by an advanced digital signal processor. The SoundCore 2 updated version compatible with pair two SoundCore 2 speakers via a single device for double the volume or bold stereo sound.
The SoundCore 2 is designed to be small measuring dimension 6.5 x 2.2 x 1.8 inch and weight is 0.91 lb, compact and particularly portable – the speaker also structures a unique twirl bass port design to confirm that it can deliver a good clean bass response from the speaker. The SoundCore 2 achieve a fully-waterproof IPX7 rating – meaning it will survive being fully submerged in water at a depth of one meter for at least 30 minutes.
The speaker also features the highly developed Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity which makes sure that you get high-quality audio streaming from any Bluetooth enabled device and habitually reconnects to the last device used. It has also a built-in mic for talking to Siri, Google Assistant or for making hands-free calls, plus a 20m Bluetooth range. It has USB /AUX port for charging, Headphone, iPods, iPhones, iPads and more. The SoundCore 2 has massive battery compare to its size which life is an incredible 24 hours, which is much longer than much of the competition.
On the up top there is the buttons combination onto the smooth plastic and fully arrayed and need to use some extra click to operate the speaker. The small LED light on the front of the speaker, when pairing with the device, it flashes blue. Continuously blue when it connected completely and it becomes red when the battery is low. Because of the driver’s location in the inside of the metallic grille, the small LED light is slightly off-center. The Anker wanted to keep a low key design that wouldn’t draw too much attention if you place it on your desk or a table. But The Anker seriously concentrates on the sound of the speaker. The speaker surfaces solid enough, but if you were looking for something durable this possibly won’t survive more than a few drops.
Anker SoundCore 2 Pros & Cons:
The Pros: The Anker SoundCore 2 is most likely the best Bluetooth speaker you can find at a cheap price, which delivery top mark sound presentation and high-quality music pour out. Its battery life continues an amazing 24 hours of playtime on a single charge, which is in all probability the highest battery life as a portable speaker. This speaker allows pushing up the maximum volume to fill up around a large room with remarkable sound quality and without any misrepresentation. The speaker’s most encouraging side is its 66 ft Bluetooth Range and built-In Mic. which I prefer very much.
The Cons: On the other hand, the ‘Anker SoundCore 2’ is designed with an excellent spiral bass port to develop the bass response, but the bass response was only decent and can be a bit misplaced in certain types of music that depend on heavy bass beats. But we feel its bass is more than enough compared to its loudness.
Into this Anker SoundCore 2 review, you will know about its sound quality. From a sound point of view, we compared more than a few mini Bluetooth speakers such as The ‘DOSS SoundBox Touch’ and ‘AOMAIS Sport II’ to this speaker and realize that it is more than an average for under $50 Bluetooth speaker, and it really exceeds my expectation. Though the Anker claims spectacular stereo sound with deep bass is delivered with extraordinary clearness and zero alteration by two high-compassion drivers and an original bass port.
Lows- In terms of volume, the lows are quite impressive that you could expect from a speaker of this size. At the low end, the sounds are pretty clean. Usually, when a small speaker attempts to push bass it ends up, sound become cloudy or mud-covered, but Anker did a good job at keeping up quality in the low end. While the deep bass kicks in problem by TV or on the Radio existing well and it doesn’t touch like you’re missing out on any of the songs.
Mids- Mids is also enjoyable and smooth, while I heard something a little off was in ‘Man in the Night’ by Kid Cudi that time I felt some of the heavier guitars didn’t get missing, but certainly lost some of their significant point and component. Besides, that vocals and acoustic guitars sounds were satisfactory.
Highs- The high end in the Soundcore really had some roughness at max volume but only a little. The bass beat basics in ‘River’ by Leon Bridges were a touch noisy but, like a lot of speakers, decreasing the volume one or two clicks mostly solve this matter.

Through this Anker SoundCore 2 review, we are presenting the verdict of the speaker. The Anker SoundCore 2 is into a grip one of the best Bluetooth speakers you can find on a little budget under US$ 50.00 though there are two rivals that’s are The ‘DOSS SoundBox Touch’ and ‘AOMAIS Sport II’ . But in fact, we enjoyed listening to its clean, pure and in-depth music that delivers this speaker, with a crisp midrange and good highs. The dual 6W drivers of the SoundCore 2 speaker actually deliver a loud impressive sound which you will be capable to fill a room with music from this speaker alone.
