Recommend a Bluetooth Speaker


Distinguished Member
Looking to move upnto a decent one of these, should be portable, charge via USB and be able to use for voice calls.

Current contender is JBL Flip 2.

Budget = £50

For the money this is brill a few other members have recommended them which led me to get one.
(can't really comment on the voice call quality as I have only used it once in a short conversation)

Thank you, this was my first foray into the BT Speaker market but the battery stopped holding a charge and it has an old style charging port.

If you go on Popmaster and fail the 3 in 10 you'll get one for free. Not sure how good it is though.

Bought my wife one of these for Christmas and she loves it. Great sound and great lighting for parties (lights can be off)

Aesthetics aside, I have an irrational fear of Maplins non branded items, thanks for the reply though.

With it without Zoe Ball? :devil:

Ive got one of these and it sounds fantastic for the size.
Sounds like it fulfils all your requirements and at £30 it's a steel. I paid about £90 for it and thought it worth the money.

Not heard if the brand before. £30 is reasonable though.

I bought one of these at full price - excellent speaker and the ability to charge other devices is very useful on holiday

Another recommendation hmmm...

I bought one of these a few weeks ago. Got it on a "Today Deal". I've been impressed for what you pay.
