Klipsch Groove review (The Klipsch Groove Portable Bluetooth Speaker)
Klipsch Groove review: Paul W. Klipsch, the founder of Klipsch was the audio innovators at Bell Telephone Laboratories. In the late twenties and early thirties, this giants arranged the foundation for cinema sound and stereo, which is the basis of “high reliability” today. The Klipsch factory’s manufacturing plant was in the basement of the telephone exchange building at South West Proving Grounds from 1948 to 1952.
At present, that factory is ‘Klipsch Museum of Audio History’ which is the landmark of Klipsch products. However, ‘Paul W. Klipsch’ also holds many artifacts in his life. The determined is to put Klipsch in the framework with the roots of the industry.
Through this Klipsch Groove review, we are presenting the introduction of the speaker. It is needed to mention that the Klipsch design their devices a bit antique looks as they have the reputation about that. Many of some compressed Bluetooth speakers in the market have imaginative or attractive designs may catch your eye.
Those can be just for fun, but the Klipsch Groove is a different device. Designed to match the unremarkable looks of a classic guitar amplifier, this compact speaker is more about the great performance in a small unite. And given how much customers love Klipsch, that the logo on the front is enough to capture their responsiveness.
It also has some notable limitations that its driver that sounds not well-organized unless you angle it upward in the direction of your ears. It has also a lacking that the fairly average speakerphone functionality, we usually see into many of others in this price range. And its single driver worth that it is fundamentally a mono speaker. We have tried to give details of the Klipsch Groove to scale its size-to-performance relation.
Into this Klipsch Groove review, you will find all the information about the design. The Groove’s black curvature designed speaker grille that wraps around three of its four side panels. The speaker is compact and measuring roughly 4.6 x 5.5 x 2.7 inches and weighing 1.7 pounds, but solid and heavy for its size, so even though it’ll simply fit for conveyance or carry-on along with you. There is a 3-inch full-range driver inside the front-facing grille which delivers 10 watts of audio, despite the fact that dual impassive bass radiators deliver lower frequencies out the angled left and right panels. A rubberized base confirms that the speaker doesn’t move or vibrate around tabletops when pushing out deep low-end audio.
Unfortunately, as part of a wide-ranging, that is comprehensive the portable Bluetooth category, the Groove delivers audio through only a single driver. The Groove tiny speaker does not deliver real stereo separation anyhow. As it is, these types of small portable speakers never have any stereo separation, but the Groove indeed plays loud for its size and produces a surprising amount of bass. Hide it in a room and chances are people will think the sound is coming from a much larger speaker. So having a single driver is OK for these type of tiny speakers.
The Groove has rubber buttons through the top panel control Power, Playback, Bluetooth pairing, and Volume. The volume works individualistically of, not in combination with your mobile device’s controlling volume level. There’s also a 3.5mm aux input button for switching between sound sources placed on the back panel, protected by a rubber snap-shut cap. This is also where the micro USB port for charging has located a cable (which is frustratingly short), as well as a USB wall adapter, are included with the speaker.
Unfortunately, there is no 3.5mm audio cable along with the speaker. In fact, other than the USB cable and power adapter, no accessories included at all.
Klipsch claims the speaker’s battery life to be approximately eight hours, but it depends on the volume levels, and the mix of held together contrasted with Bluetooth streaming. The Groove does power down after five minutes of idleness (even if paired but not playing music), and will automatically re-pair with your mobile device when powering back up.
This Klipsch Groove review will show you the key features of the speaker. The Groove is comparatively small like the size of measuring roughly 4.6 x 5.5 x 2.7 inches. It has only one driver facing the front and bass radiators the boot off the sides for better bass. The Groove has Bluetooth Wireless Technology Enabled, you can play your favorite music directly from your Bluetooth enabled phone, music player or computer. The button controls on top are rubberized and sense superior when I press it. It is actually a little substantial which is the good thing so far, it’s mean that the finest components are used. This speaker has up to 8 hours of battery life. The Groove is IPX4 water resistant and it’s fairly safe to take outdoors but be sure not to drop it into the heavy water, but it should be okay under light rain and splashes.

You should carefully read this Klipsch Groove review to understand its sound quality. As an owner of a speaker shop, I have tried many speakers before and honestly saying, the Groove sounds good within this price range! It has attractive good bass, the mids are balanced perfectly and the highs carry a gentle control to my music. It plays pretty loud too and can continue delivers its clarity well as long as I’m not playing at near maximum volume. Some of my favorite songs sounded like velvet with decent bass offering its weight to the song, and some are sounded like silk to my ears, unlike the grainy harshness of similar small speakers.
What most users don’t like is that the sound feels very restricted. At this price, I would expect the speaker to accomplish more airiness but the sound does not spread out at all! With no spaciousness! The 4-inch high Groove speaker is fitted out with 10 watts of power, a large 3-inch driver and two side-firing passive bass radiators deliver smooth and clear sound with good bass. At top volumes on both the sound source phone (in this case, an iPhone) and the speaker, minor misrepresentation stolen into the mix at entire peak levels, but at just tresses lower than maximum volume, the Groove delivers a full-bodied, clean bass response.
The Groove does not have a speakerphone and it has very average 8 hours battery charge but I prefer little more like other similar speakers because of outdoor program. Another complaint is the 5 minutes standby time, which is so frustrating!

Overall we were very pleased with the Klipsch Groove. The Klipsch Groove practically design efforts too much on ‘squeezing rich bass’ response out of such a small speaker and it certainly doesn’t sound bad. It’s a solid, well grille that wraps around three of its four side panels and waterproof wireless speaker that sounds smooth and attractive at a budget-friendly price. The Klipsch Groove is available in only one color Black and 8 hours of battery life is much shorter but it is prospectively enough for the average user. Those who love music are looking for impressive sound from a very compact speaker will get a kick out of the Klipsch Groove. It’s easy to carry pretty much everywhere, and it still has the brawn to play your tunes attractively loud. Plus it’s splash-proof, rugged, and exciting to listen to. You may enjoy a high classified mono sound with an impressive volume when you’re relaxing at your house, or be walking out, biking, camping, hiking, and on the way to long drive. Comparison with sound, The AOMAIS GO speaker might the competitor of the Klipsch Groove, though The AOMAIS GO speaker has a few features more but, we prefer Company’s goodwill than the features. Through this Klipsch Groove review, without any hesitation, we highly recommend this speaker to anyone looking for something in this price range and for decent quality! We would also like to reminder Klipsch’s goodwill for prospective wireless Bluetooth speaker buyers.
