Likewise, it’s also great for partying by the pool until the sun comes up.

Sound quality

The Anker SoundCore’s reputation is in large part to its high-quality sound. With less than 1% harmonic distortion, the SoundCore’s audio capabilities are both commendable and incredible, considering the small package it comes in. Moreover, you can crank up the volume without negatively impacting sound—something manner smaller speakers just can’t manage. SoundCore also features Anker’s patented spiral bass port design, which essentially improves the depth and quality of the bass in the compact speaker.

First impression of the Anker SoundCore Bluetooth Speaker with 24-Hour Playtime

Visually, the Anker SoundCore Bluetooth Speaker makes a very good first impression. With its sleek, modern lines and unobtrusive looks, it fades into the background in the right way. anker soundcore 24 hour playtimeBecause of that, I would definitely say it suits (or won’t conflict with) any design aesthetic.

But since looks aren’t everything, it’s time for the nitty gritty.

I never believe the hype when I hear about how amazing the sound quality is on any speaker—nor do I believe all of the negative reviews. In my experience, companies will always oversell their sound (because, duh) while audiophiles purposely leave highly critical reviews to showcase their knowledge on the subject. With all of that said, I think Anker’s SoundCore has an overall very good sound quality.

Warranty

Anker’s SoundCore comes with an 18-month warranty.

Final verdict

The ease of use, portability and ultra-long battery life are huge selling points for Anker’s SoundCore, and when you factor in the great sound, it’s a very likeable Bluetooth speaker. I definitely recommend it!

Negatives
  • Like many battery-powered rechargeable devices, it’s not recommended you leave the Anker SoundCore plugged into the AC adaptor long-term. (Meaning near-constantly, the way many people do with their laptops.) The reason for this is it can shorten the life of the battery (in general, not just how long it holds one particular charge). This isn’t a big issue, but it’s worth pointing out to those who have this habit. (Admittedly, I’m one—at least when it comes to laptops.)anker soundcore bluetooth speaker
