This bluetooth speaker is great. I grew up listening to stuff with the likes of a 250w sound system, but after purchasing this 20w speaker, it’s clear to me that you don’t just need large wattage to get loud, good sounding quality. You can easily fill a large room with this speaker and it lasts for hours before needing a charge. I’ve tried playing several different genres of music on it to check it’s bass handling capabilities and treble quality. It’s still a small speaker, but it can easily provide you with loud, good quality music with good base and treble.
A bit too good if anything – good sound quality and very loud. I bought it for my ‘him indoors’, to play music off his laptop. He loves it, but i wonder if the neighbours do.
Good size for plonking down anywhere. Easy to connect to, literally seconds. The sound is definitely too loud for a kitchen dining room at full whack, if others are in the house, so happy there. Sound quality is better than i expected for the price. It doesn’t have the same clarity and depth of sound as a bose soundlink mini that we have have, or the sony xb30, but i have to remind myself it is a quarter of the price. Battery hasn’t died yet and used for around 6 hours so far. If you want a cheap, easy to use bluetooth speaker that is fairly loud for most applications and aren’t too much of an audiophile, i would recommend.

Comments from buyers
“Aukey Eclipse Bluetooth speaker – A must buy!, Doesn’t connect to Tablets., Great Speaker for Music and Audio Books”
I read quite a few reviews for this speaker and opted to go for it over things like a ue boom and the bigger jbl’s and boy was i impressed. The battery is fantastic, way more than the stated 12 hours. It is nicely designed and made, it has a good weight to it and easy to carry. The clarity is incredible for the price, not too noticeably difference from the bose soudlink mini. The bose excels at lower volumes however at about 50% there is not much in it between the two. Bass in good, more than enough for a portable speaker. Overall, very surprised and happy with the purchase. Aukey were always good with batteries but this is something else, they’ve got it.
Awesome speaker for the price i paid (33 quid, daily deal) – my go to portable bluetooth speaker. Looks great and sounds great.
Can listen with really good sound quality at either high or low volume. Only downsides i can think of are, it has no low battery warning, and you can’t pair more than one device at a time; however, bluetooth pairing is super quick.
Bought this specifically to italian podcasts as we are learning that language and needed something to give a clear, well-balanced sound for speech. Our italian tutor brings a speaker which costs £200 and, honestly, the aukey is just as good and quite possibly better. We have also been using it with spotify and the sound with music is breathtakingly good. The bass / treble balance is just right. I thoroughly recommend this product.
Sounds really good for a 40quid speaker. It looks good especially the passive radiators. The mesh looks durable and gives you a good grip. I think with an eq can be really good. It’s not as good with the bass. At high volume, it tries not to distort and in the meanwhile lowers the volume so much to stay on top that you loose the taste to listen with so many variations in the volume. Shame i threw the box for return. Customer service contacted me promptly and made a few questions to understand the problem. They gave me a quick and good solution.
After seeing some excellent reviews by a technical magazine i thought i’d give it a try and they were not wrong. It has excellent separation between bass mid and treble. Pairing to my tablet or phone was simple.
Bought this for my dad’s birthday and i’m really really impressed with it. Honestly for the price i cannot over praise this speaker, i have an ‘beatspill’ and it was way more expensive than the ‘aukey’ and yet the ‘aukey’ in my opinion is easily as good. Great battery life, fantastic sound and it’s pretty cool looking to.
It sounds surprisingly good for its size and price. Got it to use in the kitchen when cooking, etc. Connected well with my phones and tablets. So far it hasn’t needed a recharge after using 2-3 hours a day for 4 days. Too early to tell on reliability.
I wanted something a little bit more capable than most of the other bluetooth speakers on offer. I love music and a natural sound is important to me so the bass bloated sound of bose and jml put them out of the picture. This aukey unit is excellent at producing the mid range vocals in rock. The bass is well controlled with very little overhang and although it might not go really deep that’s to be expected for such a small unit. The top end is good perhaps a little restrained. This unit has plenty of power. Although i probably won’t use anything like full volume it’s reassuring that there is power in reserve. Lastly, it looks really good compared to the majority of run of the mill cuboid and cylindrical speakers.
I chose this over the anker soundcore boost because it has better sound quality in the treble range, which i strongly prefer, and i’m not likely to use it outdoors (the boost has a much higher ipx rating). I’m very pleased with the sound quality and the bass isn’t lacking at all – it’s a matter of taste, the boost is set up for people who want their music very bass heavy and aren’t so worried about treble quality. The eclipse is solidly made (there’s metal underneath the fabric covering) and bluetooth performance has been great – no issues on the speaker’s side, just my aging computer not being able to stream music at the same time as loading a webpage. Recommended if you like a good clear sound.
It has crytal clear highs and deep, boomy lows (important in my case) and i’m using it for school during lunch time. It’s amazing and loud, the buttons are big and easy to understand and it uses the volume of your device, so you don’t have to turn up the phone and your speaker. I was pondering on the idea of buying this speaker for a while as it is a lot of money for me, but damn, i’m glad i bought it.
I read other reviews before i bought this, i like a good sound for my music, the reviews were positive and the price was good. Not been disappointed, good sound and easy connectivity. A slight minus is no display sowing battery life.
Excellent speaker; i watched a lot of youtube comparison videos & borrowed a friend’s bose before buying – & also took the precaution of emailing their support people about some of the criticisms on here (eg blacklisting bluetooth connections, which i’m happy to say does not happen). What has also been obvious (common sense, really) is that the speaker output is very dependent on the quality of whatever you’re streaming; spotify free, for example, is not the best.
This is a beautiful crafted bluetooth speaker, with a good sound and a nice ‘dry” bass, but not overpowering. 00 an bargain speaker, good sound and it’s looking good as well. I’m very happy with this aukey eclipse.
Got a couple of aukey bits and all perform pretty faultlessly. These speakers are no exception. The volume is unreal for such a small unit and the fact the side panels are actually a pair of woofers means the depth of sound is great. Considering the price, i couldn’t recommend more highly.
Incredible room-filling sound. So impressed with this little speaker. Excellent, rounded lows and highs that most portable speakers can’t even come near to. The output is worth more than twice the price charged for it. It looks pretty darn good too.
Great value portable bluetooth speaker. Very broad range of good clear sound reproduction. Trebles can be a bit shrill at times but equally impressive with some music where you can distinguish more instruments and it’s good for speech. It has great clarity through the whole range and even a decent amount of bass. I compared it with my anker soundcore boost and if i had to choose between them, i would go for the anker as, by comparison, the aukey sounds a bit flat or lacking 3d. The anker is sweeter, somehow easier to listen to although definitely muddier. It’s probably a taste thing and i wouldn’t be surprised if a proper audiophile or maybe someone with younger ears would prefer the aukey. Another reason for my preference is that it lacks the auxiliary charging port or the anker, so you can’t power your phone or amazon dot from it. It does function well with easy bluetooth connection and simple, responsive buttons and looks good.
It came 24 hours after ordering which was very good. Brand new in the box, like it should be. Packaging was just about good enough. But a heavy handed delivery drive and there might have been issues. That was my main worry on receipt. Anyway, the speaker itself, at first impressions, wasn’t loud enough for me. The sound quality was very good for the price range, but the 2 little sub woofers on either end looked like they were going to pop when i turned the speaker right up. I was maybe expecting too much for £40. But for not a lot of money, it’s a good enough little room speaker.
We have two of these and like the quality of product, incl. However, one of these speakers has recently stopped working (it does not even work when plugged in), so we suspect the battery has died. Considering it is only a few months old, it is worrying. We hope we are unlucky and one of the speakers simply had a manufacturing defect. We are going to contact the manufacturer shortly. If the other one dies as well, i will update this review.
Really nice looking speaker and very well made for the money. No distortion at all at half volume which is good enough for me. Not too much bass, the mid range is very good and the treble isn’t tinny. I cant say the overall performance is stunning you would have to pay a lot more for a speaker, and it would have to be bigger. For its size and price i don’t think you would get anything better. The bluetooth pairing is first class and it pairs with your smartphone and the amazon echo with no trouble at all. Great to take out in the garden in the summer. I am pleased with mine, it ticks all my boxes.
This speaker is amazing in sound, portability, battery life and ease. I bought it primarily to listen to my audio books from my phone whilst at my spinning wheel spinning bespoke yarn. I wanted something which had a good resonance, ease of use, not obtrusive, and basically sounded as good as having my earphones on. It’s almost as if someone in the room is reading out loud. The plus is my music sounds great as well. It fills the room with a rich sound, and it’s a large room – 20 foot x 20 foot. Can’t wait to try it out on the patio. The only real niggle is i use the included audio cable instead of bluetooth most of the time, and i need to really crank up the phone volume in order to get a good volume on the speaker. Using the bluetooth connection, i don’t have to do this.
