What’s in the Box?

Aosder-Bluetooth-Speaker-Review-Inside-The-Box

Inside the box, you just get the basics:

  • Aosder Bluetooth speaker
  • Micro USB cable
  • 3.5mm Aux cable
  • Replacement rubber feet
  • Instruction Manual

There’s no power adapter but you can use pretty much any USB charger.

Aosder Bluetooth Speaker Review: Design

I liked the design of Aosder’s Bluetooth speaker, as it steps away from the traditional speaker designs we’ve seen a thousand times.

The speaker itself is triangular, with a rubberised coating. The front of the speaker is dominated by the speaker’s large acrylic mirror panels that expose its unique lighting design.

Along the top “spine” joining the two panels is a full set of playback controls, as well as a button for changing between various lighting patterns.

The left side of the speaker features a small power button whilst the right side houses a micro USB port for charging the speaker and a 3.5mm input, all hidden under a rubber flap.

The dedicated subwoofer is located underneath the unit, in addition to a wrist strap slot (though the speaker is way too heavy to carry like that). There’s also sticky rubber feet to hold it in place, though more on that later in the review.

Aosder Bluetooth Speaker Review: Using It

You pair up the Aosder Bluetooth speaker with your smartphone like any other Bluetooth device, playing a tone when paired.

Alternatively, you can use the 3.5mm Aux in port. The speaker will automatically cut over when it’s connected via an audio cable.

Music playback is controlled via your phone or the built-in controls (when connected via Bluetooth) and everything works as it should.

The speaker’s main trick, its infinite mirror lighting design, looks great. Thanks to its clever “Infinite Mirror” design, the lights look like they go deep “into” the speaker.

Aosder-Bluetooth-Speaker-Review-01

There’s a few different lighting patterns to choose from. However, only one responds to the music which feels like a missed opportunity.

Battery life was fairly solid. With its in-built 3600mAh battery, I was able to get around 10 hours at 75% volume. This can be stretched further if you turn the speaker down but where’s the fun in that?

One thing that is frustrating is the low battery warning. Aosder have decided that 30% is considered low, with the speaker playing a low battery tone every 30 or so seconds and interrupting your music. A lower threshold should have been used.

Also, pushing the speaker to maximum volume did expose another issue – this speaker LOVES to move when maxed out.

When cranked up to max, bassy tracks cause the speaker to move around like a kid on red cordial. The company tried to fix this using sticky feet, but these quickly stopped working after collecting dust as I moved the speaker around. Thankfully, it’s not an issue until you hit the high end of the speaker’s limits.

Aosder Bluetooth Speaker Review: Sound Quality

I entered this review expecting the speaker to be a gimmick without any concern for sound quality.

Thankfully, I was wrong.

The speaker sounds excellent, offering respectable coverage of highs, mids and lows. Thanks to the dedicated subwoofer, bass is impressive and offers plenty of punch.

Music sounds good, regardless of whether you’re listening to light acoustic tracks or the heaviest of metal.

Volume is great too, with the speaker’s dual 10W drivers pumping out plenty of sound – easily filling a small to medium sized room with quality audio. Even at maximum volume, I didn’t experience any distortion.

Microphone Quality

You can also use the Aosder Bluetooth speaker for hands-free calling thanks to its in-built microphone.

However, I found the microphone, whilst servicable, wasn’t particularly sensitive so people on the other end of the call did have some difficulty hearing me. It’s handy to have in a pinch but I wouldn’t want to use it for lengthy calls.

Verdict

Aosder-Bluetooth-Speaker-Review-Left

The Aosder Bluetooth speaker is a solid Bluetooth Speaker. I was genuinely impressed by the sound quality, with plenty of bass unlike many Bluetooth speakers.

The lighting effect is a nice touch, though I would have liked more responsive lighting patterns.

Overall, though it has its flaws, the sound it produces and its unique design more than makes up for it.

Pros

  • Great sound quality
  • Unique design
  • Bluetooth 4.0 and 3.5mm connectivity

Cons

  • Only 1 lighting pattern is sound-activated
  • Pricey compared to competing products
