Anker’s SoundCore Boost portable speaker is positioned in a way like a SoundCore 2 having undergone a small course of anabolics: a little bulkier, a little heavier, a little more powerful, a little more expensive… and much more interesting, as we shall see.
Without being gifted, the Anker SoundCore Boost makes a copy of a good student, studious and serious. No major flaws, a simple but neat and robust design, audio performance that is by no means brilliant but very pleasant, for a rather soft launch price of 89 €: all of this makes it a champion of value for money.
- Clean and balanced sound.
- Restitution quite energetic, even at low volume.
- Free from the sound image.
- Good stereo, low directivity, excellent sound diffusion.
- Robust construction.
- Small traces of sibilance on aggressive mixes.
- No return to previous track command.
NB: The reported price drop is calculated by comparing the lowest price of the day with the average of the lowest prices charged by all merchants for the product last month, with security rules to exclude prices from shops whose the VAT policy is not clear (known as “grey” shops, typically in the case of imports from China).
The SoundCore 2 is a small nomadic speaker with honest performance that surprises with its great autonomy. Even if it does the job well, it will not overthrow you with its sound quality, especially since it must be spared or risk suffering the effects of distortion.
