In this post, I take a look at another bluetooth speaker, this time a cool compact rugged wireless outdoor speaker review from Ancord!
Ok! This is the Ancord S7 and its a wireless outdoor bluetooth speaker that has a rugged build and is very compact. Let’s check out some of the features.
First, this speaker is really versatile. Not only can you listen to music via bluetooth and through the auxiliary input, nice for listening if you have an old iPod or cd player, you can also insert a Micro SD card and listen to your music that way. I’m not familiar with any other bluetooth speakers that offer that.
Another feature that isn’t common is the FM radio. Frankly, that’s not something I’ll ever use, but you might.
There is one 5 W speaker that really has good bass response. When I first turned this little thing on, keep in mind it’s dimensions are roughly 4 by 4 by 2, I was really surprised by the quality of the sound!
The case is designed to be used out of doors and is built really ruggedly to do just that. It’s encased in a thick rubber coating and the opening for the USB charging cable, aux cable, and microSD seals up nice and tight too. It’s shockproof rustproof, IPX6 waterproof. Which means that it is protected against heavy splashing and rain. So, it’s not meant to be submerged.
It’s rated for 12 hours of playtime in bluetooth and 30 hours of FM. And, if you have an IOS device it has Battery Balance Display Feature, too
Connecting via bluetooth 4.0 is a snap. When you turn it on it’s immediately in bluetooth mode and ready to go. I have an iPhone 7 plus and it found the speaker right away connected right away and we were off to the races. It’s rated at 33 feet of range with no obstructions.
Let’s take a look at the button lay out. The auto lay out is simple, an on/off button, pause button, which is also your call button, and volume control buttons. I have not discovered anyway to skip tracks.
Lastly it has this nice rubber loop that enables you to hang this from a branch, your belt, off of your backpack, wherever.
Oh! Almost forgot! on the bottom is a 1/4 20 tripod mount as well. That means that you can attach it to a tripod or light stand to have it elevated.
Now, as to the price. When last I checked it was going for about $26. You can check the most up-to-date prices by following the link in the description below.
So, what are my final thoughts? This is a solid compact unit that is easily transportable while offer really good sound quality. I think that it’s a great value and would make a really nice gift, especially for that person that is into the outdoors and wants to take their music with them.
This definitely worth checking.
Here’s our question of the day. Where do you use bluetooth speakers the most? Do you use them outdoors? Indoors? while on your bike?
