Betron KBS08 Wireless Portable Travel Bluetooth Speaker Titanium, The best speaker for its size and price

I bought two of these as i was so impressed. You can choose between 7 colours for the outer casing. Small and compact this speaker packs a punch. If you put this on a wooden floor or table the bass is powerful enough to fill the room with quality sound. I would advise pealing off the plastic protective cover on the bottom of the speaker, otherwise when in full volume mode the speaker will move slowly along the floor. Once the plastic is peeled off it grips the surface well. I like the subtle lights along the side and the top which change colour when in use. This speaker also speaks to you to let you know that bluetooth is connected and disconnected. Whilst playing, if you get a phone call it will also start speaking the number of the person who is phoning you so you can recognise the number. You can connect to the speaker via bluetooth or using a 3.

I have a huawei p smart and cannot use this speaker to stream content while having the bluetooth on and either using data and wifi. I need to download content before it’ll play without buffering every 2 seconds and probably the reason the speaker had an sd port. The call functions do not work and if alarms on your phone go off when this is on, you need to switch them off on your phone. Which makes it inconvenient,, especially when you’re in the shower in the morningwhen i’ve answered the phone and tried to have a conversation with someone, they say they can’t hear me as it’s very faint, even if i hold the speaker to my mouth. I need to pick up the phone and speak to the person instead. This is very annoying and i wish i’d known about this before i bought this. Reading my phone manual states bluetooth speaker+streaming won’t work very well but nothing on bluetooth not being able to take phone calls etc. For this i’d thought the speaker troubleshoot would have something on it, but it doesn’t. The manual isn’t that great for instructions anyway. The flashing coloured lights this speaker uses are annoying, but easily removed.

Amazing speaker with great sound. Much better than expected for the brilliant price. The bluetooth works brilliantly and supports spotfiy well. The product arrived in good time and was well proctedted. The speaker itself i say a great size and very sturdy. It can fill a room with music and volume can ben controlled via phone and the device itself. I have also send this via the laptop as a speaker. It has been on two holidays with us and is great for the beach and hotel room. Would definitely my recommend and buy again.

“The best speaker for its size and price, Cant go wrong for the price :D, Great product in every waywould recommend!”

For the time that it worked, it worked very well. I can honestly say, i loved this little beast of a speaker. I liked the overall volume, the bass was so good it was actually a bit of an issue (i’ll get to that in a second) and the battery life was superb, much better than i initially expected. It has a very durable and well made feel about it, something you hold in your hands and think that if you threw this at someone they’d break a bone or something and considering the price is an amazing buy and i would probably buy it again considering the circumstances. The bass of the speaker (since it does not have any rubber grips or ‘feet’ to hold it) will make the speaker migrate to the closest way off any surface faster than i can say ‘what a tune’. I solved this by wadding up some tissue and wedging it against something like a bottle of water, not great but what can you do?. 😂but the main reason that i gave this otherwise amazing product 3 stars is the fact it stopped charging. I’ve tried 2 different cables along with the one supplied but to no avail.

Its not a big sound, obviously, the unit is only the size of an aerosol lidbut its a nice sound, and the bass is present and balanced. With careful siting you may even get a small thump out of itits a weighty device, and seems very sturdy and engineered. It feels more expensive than it is in the hand. Lights up nicely too :-)at this price it has to be a 5 star rating.

The sound is clear its quite powerful considering its size its heavy-ish due to the (steel ring around it?). Battery life is good also, all around well worth it. Put it on a wodden surface and it acts as a speaker box which sounds even better than it already does. Inputs are weird though, as it it uses a usb connector for charging and it uses the same connecter as a aux audio in and not the 3. 5 mm female earphone connector on speaker – (the connector is the same as a samsung phone charger connector or ps4 controller usb cable) not normally used as an audio in but hey, it works. Grab one of these kb-s08 speakers its worth it.

This speaker is a solid weighty product designed and manufactured to the highest quality with a finish without blemish. The sound quality for its size is commensurate or better than some speakers of a larger nature. Sadly i returned this item due to it not having the bluetooth range that i was looking for. It stated ten meters but after five meters it lost its connectivity. Overall though a great solid product and recommended and if kept close by to your proposed bluetooth tie up then you can expect great sounds and satisfaction.

If you’re expecting something with the room shaking audio of bose soundlink or taotronics 20w speaker you’ll be disappointed but for something that’s less than a tenth the price of bose you get a tiny, lightweight speaker that is solidly built, doesn’t have the tinny pitch of many small speakers and has the best sound of any of its size and price rivals. For anyone who wants a speaker they can pop in a bag for travel or listen round the house it’s ideal and it does get pretty loud without distortion.

This beast arrived yesterday, so not had a great deal of time to road test it. However, very impressed so far. The sound quality for a relatively small device is terrific. Pairing the speaker with my phone was extremely quick and straightforward and it came charged up and ready to go out of the box. It looks and feels robust although not exactly light. It’s not ‘heavy’ but i guess not as light as you might expect. One thing that may not be for everyone is the lighting effect round the edge of the speaker which changes colour as you play music. (my wife likes it, i can take it or leave it. ) anyway, in a family full of critics we’d had the speaker paired with 3 different i-phones (1 at a time) within 10 minutes of me trying it out.

    At first was very impressed with this little gadget, but the sound has gone crackly after only a few months of use. Don’t transport it about, and am pretty careful with it. A bit disappointing, but otherwise very snazzy and was great before it started fading.

    I travel a lot and i bought this to replace a similar type of speaker that had become unreliable. This has a better sound and much simpler to use with confidence.

    Great little speaker, bought to amplify sound on my dad’s tablet. Simple to use, easy to set up, don’t know about battery life yet, haven’t had it long enough.
