PICTEK Bluetooth Speaker – Very impressive piece of kit

It has a decent bass sound and attains a reasonable volume. The duration of the recharge is good too. I would reccomend this product b.

Arrived within 36hrs of order. Charged once and a week later still going with regular/low usage (ie up to an hour). Volume is quite good considering price paid. Time will tell if the battery etc lasts.

Arriving packaged to gift standards, this absolutely amazing speaker has lived up to and surpassed its scores of glowing 5 star reviews. It looks attractive, in a rugged well-built sort of way, but most importantly, it delivers a truly gob-smacking sound; treble, mids and a solid bass which defy belief; you must hear it for yourself. The volume is loud and easily fills a medium sized room. I know; i just wanted to mention it again. Small enough to be highly portable, but big enough to deliver the sound my ears deserve, i cannot praise this speaker enough. If i lost it for some reason then i would not hestitate to buy it again. Here are the specifications for the PICTEK Bluetooth Speaker:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • 【 SOUND BEYOND SIZE:】 This portable speaker delivers two 10W drivers and one passive radiator which provide full-spectrum audio with incredible bass effect and clarity at any listening level. Enjoy LIVE music anytime, anywhere you go! (with 30-Hour Playtime 20W 4400MAH Dual-Driver Shockproof Waterproof Splashproof Superior Sound)
  • 【 30HRS PLAY TIME on Mid/Low Volume Mode:】 The rechargeable 4400 mAh lithium-ion battery delivers up to 30 hours of playtime on the Mid/Low Volume Mode, and charges with most USB power sources. Be prepared to be impressed by the power of this Pictek speaker!
  • 【 Engineered To Travel:】 Don’t leave your music behind. Enjoy wireless freedom with this little speaker. Weighing in at just 24.5ounce, it’s small and light enough to tuck into your bag. It has a hook that lets you place it almost anywhere and provides a low center of gravity that makes it nearly impossible to tip over
  • 【 Hear What You Want:】 Advanced Bluetooth 4.0 technology features faster & stable signal transmission, clearer sound quality and lower power consumption. You can enjoy clear, natural sound from this durable speaker within 33ft wirelessly.
  • 【 IPX4 Waterproof Rating & Splash-proof:】 What could be more fun than bring a splash-resistant and anti-shock speaker to a party at the beach? Waterproof rated IPX4 for protection against rainfall and splashing.

This is a great product with sound that might be expected from a much larger more expensive system. However it has a common design flaw – the double use of buttons. If you want to turn the volume down slightly what do you do?. Press the ‘volume down’ button. But on this unit, like so many, this goes back to the start of the track or previous track. Instead you need to press and hold the button, which usually results in a big volume change. It would be way better if the volume buttons control only the volume and the common convention of double-pressing the power skips a track and triple-pressing goes back. Having written that, the sound is so good i’ll ignore – or at least try to ignore – this one design flaw.

Does what it says it should do. Being england i was bbqing in the rain (as you do) and forgot i left the speaker out which was getting soaked. Not a problem, a quick wipe down and no damage done. The sound quality is good well better than my ipod touch. I now feel assured that i can bbq in the rain whilst listening to some good sounds.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • An awesome bit of kit, very pleased that I bought it!
  • A Totally Superior Sound Force in Portable Form
  • Was good until today [UPDATED]

Gets pretty loud and has excellent sound quality. Made of great materials and has a satisfying weight to it, feels a bit like im holding alien technology every time i pick it up. This is everything i could have hoped for, definately recommend. One thing to note is it comes with a usb charging cable but no plug adapter, so you can only really charge it with your pc unless you have a usb plug adapter lying around (which im guessing most people do to charge their phones etc. ), just thought it was worthy of a mention.

So glad i purchased this speaker because the sound is absolutely amazing for a unit that is so small. It connects to your phone easily through bluetooth and has the added bonus that you can answer phone calls. You won’t believe the quality for such a small price. By far the best purchase i have bought all year.

They are much louder than i thought and being that they are 20w makes a difference because they are louder than 8w or 10w speakers. It lasts a long time but can take a while to charge from empty.

It’s heavy which i associate with quality in a speaker. Connected to bluetooth with ease. The sound is good, plenty loud enough for my purposes. Treble seems to come out of one side and bass from the other, not sure which way is best for listening to it. Very happy with it, hope it lasts.

Wanted to upgrade from a previous bluetooth speaker as i wanted something louder and with better sound quality. I risked it and went for this, having never heard of the brand was a bit dubious. However i am certainly not disappointed. Can’t believe the clarity, bass and volume from such a small speaker. Don’t get me wrong, the bass isn’t going to vibrate your walls from such a small device, however it is the best i’ve experienced from a portable bluetooth speaker and when place on a coffee table i can feel it vibrating the floor with bass heavy songs. Unlike some speakers the sound doesn’t distort even at maximum volume – which is plenty loud enough for a large room; you actually have to shout to be heard. Battery life is also very good, have used it for parties and it’s lasted the whole time. Rugged build quality too so i am sure it will last a long timefor the price you definitely can’t go wrong, highly satisfied and i very much recommend.

I bought the speaker after reading other reviews which generally read well. However on receiving the item i don’t hold the same opinion. The speaker can not handle bass and treble at the same time if your listening to a bassy track with the volume set at a higher level. The bass causes the mid range and treble to be muffled. Once the bass drops out the mid range and treble are clear. At lower volumes it works ok but it is far from your home hifi. Overall it’s ok but only just ok.

Very pleased with this little speaker. High frequencies are nice and clear the bass is good, considering how small it is. It was nicely packaged, in a sturdy box, with the necessary leads. It arrived quickly and i was very satisfied with the service from this company. Bluetooth speakers, [20w 30hours 4400mahpictek wireless speakers, portable speakers with dual sound source,[upgraded version]shockproof waterproof splashproof outdoor dual-driver with 30-hour playtime with superior sound. ]

Love the speaker in all regards however the sound quality isn’t the best however for the price i have no complaints. If you’re an audiophile i recommend you look into higher end options. The water resistance is perfect if you like to listen to music in the shower as steam can damage not water resistant electronics.

The speaker is light weight but feels as if it could withstand a bomb. The music is clear and the bass is good. It is way louder than i thought it would be and i have no clue why anyone way rate it less than 5 stars. I would recommend to anyone to buy it as it well worth the money.

Purchase based on review from daren w. The speaker comes in a well designed box, with all the cables. Initial charge took 4 hours using a 2amp phone charger. Sound quality is very good, low/ mid & high range are crisp & clear, bass is quite good for it’s size although there is some distortion at high volume if playing songs with alot of bass, but this is to be expected from a small speaker module. Sound quality is also improved if the phone/ bluetooth device is set to max volume and then adjust the volume from the speaker. Buttons have a nice positive feel to them. I’ve not tested the ip rating yet. Battery life is good so far, had it on for about 15 hours at between 1/2 & 2/3 volume. Depth of sound is better if placed near to a hard surface. The rubberised finish is nice to the touch and prevents it from slipping on most surfaces.

I purchased this speaker last august, and i absolutely love it, it’s very well made, a nice weight, good sound quality, connects quickly to bluetooth and its got great protection for when you drop it,. I have used this every single day since purchasing it, i’ve dropped it more times then i care to remember and it still looks as good as new. This speaker was a great buy and definitely worth the money.

I had the bose equivalent and this unit is not quite as good but you take into account the cost you are getting far more value. If money is no problem to you buy the bose, if you want value for money while getting a high quality unit buy this.

Bought this for my husband he loves it. The quality of sound is great and the volume is loud gor the size it makes enough noise to have a small party. The only downside is that the microphone is not good when answering the phone. But i bought as a speaker which deserves 5 stars.

This is a replacement speaker as my last one gave up the ghost , after several years of hard work, this one is excellent it has great sound quality from such a small speaker, sturdy unit and waterproof to boot and at a great price as well , i would recommend this.

This speaker delivers a really impressive sound, with good clarity and surprisingly loud for the size. The battery life is very impressive, it claims to be 30 hours and so far i have used it for over 20 without recharging and it is still going strong. The speaker looks good and feels like it would easily take a knock or two, which makes it ideal for outdoor use. For the price i think you would struggle to find anything better.

I really love this speaker, it is plenty loud. I use it to bluetooth my phone using spotify while driving and the quality is very good with no vibration on the dash. Also it is bottom weighted so it takes a lot to topple it over. There is plenty of bass and mids are also excellent. Battery lasts plenty long and you can also charge it on the go. Would definitely recommend this speaker, for the money i think you would be looking a long time for better.

One thought on “PICTEK Bluetooth Speaker – Very impressive piece of kit

  1. This is a great speaker and surprisingly loud. Bluetooth link is clear and steady, not experienced any loss of sound with the speaker or bluetooth connection. It is light and portable enough, as described and comes with that handy clip for those who might want to hang it up. Haven’t tried it within the bathroom setting but i don’t doubt it will be as good there as any other setting. I’ve used it as a speaker with my laptop, for my ipod and also ipad for music and movies and it’s not let me down with any of these. If you’re considering a bluetooth speaker this one has definitely got to be up there. The indpendent review i read about it was accurate and the device lives up to expectations and then some.

    I loved this speaker for its high volume, portability and the added bonus of having a great battery life. Not only that but it was super useful for picnics and trips where i could pump out whatever songs i wanted, basically what a good portable bluetooth speaker should do. I was more than pleased with it and the only reasons i’m not anymore is because up till today i didn’t have issues with the structure of the speaker or the plastic should i say?. Which can be seen in the pictureand, the main downfall of this is that it no longer charges. Not sure why this is but i can almost be certain its because of a broken pin on the charging port or something of the sorts which is really frustrating. (this can also be seen in the pictures, as there is normally a red led indicating its charging)if you’re still wondering why i still gave it 3 stars, that is only because it worked for a certain period of time, now i’m not sure i can truly recommend it. Update: as soon as this review was up i was promptly contacted by customer service and have since received a replacement. I originally wanted to give them the 4 stars because i liked them a lot until what i said before happened, but now they more than deserve 5 stars for contacting me and shipping me a new speakerdefinitely recommend this speaker as it is plenty loud, good water and dust resistance and yup, its bluetooth so you can take it anywhere. Cheers yongtopps: the last picture i uploaded is the new speaker that they sent.

    I don’t normally write reviews, but i have been so impressed with this little speaker that i decided to do so. The quality of the build and of the sound is amazing for something so small and at such a low price. The battery life is excellent, even at high volumes. The hands-free calling even works well. The feel of it is of high quality materials and it is definitely splash-proof, as i found out at a bbq last weekend when a drink was spilled on it. I love it and for the price i am very happy with it all around.

    Being a classical music lover, i was quite dubious whether the sound quality of a blue-tooth speaker, such as this, for my laptop would satisfy me. Nevertheless, i looked at the options available on amazon and read the many reviews. This scored best overall – and, having bought one, i cannot praise it enough. The clarity at all frequencies (speech and music) is simply amazing and it is very easy to connect up (either blue-tooth or cable) – all at a very reasonable price.

    Really impressed with this speaker arrived the next day, very well packed. Very easy to pair to the phone. Sound quality is fantastic and you would think that the sound was coming from a large speaker it’s that good. Great bass sounds and very loud. Bought it so we could listen to some tunes outside.

    Wanted something that would blast the sound with good bass and would not cost the earth. You can not go wrong with this. Easy to use and can take it anywhere. Great when working outside too. I went to the likes of currys and looked and listened to what they had to offer for up to about £100. This one is way better than what currys had. Wouldn’t hesitate to buy another.

      • It is very robust and feels strong and sturdy. It is fairly heavy so head the warning about not placing it high on a shelf or especially where young children may pull it off. Very easy to connect to my phone with no pairing issues. I’ve used it in one of the vans at as the radio doesn’t function. Even at 70 mph on the motorway i can comfortably hear music or the spoken word. Volume is controlled by my phone. The sound reproduced is good quality with no noticeable distortion. Very happy with my purchase.

    • I usually have to use my graphic equalizer on my phone to get bluetooth speakers to sound good with power but this one is probably the loudest one i’ve had so far and the sound quality is so good i don’t need to alter it. It’s my 6am alarm now and it blows the street up with heavy metal. I hope this lasts long as i seem to find the usb ports give in easily on speakers. But as of now it’s fantastic and i’d like to try an even louder one because i’m a loud music freak.

    These speakers are just awesome. The sound is loud and clear. I really like the body of this device, meaning you don’t need a case or worry about rain, splashes and falls. Using it every morning for an hour or so. It is superb for the charging, just under 3hrs for a full charge. The bomber pictek is just brilliant.
