5 of the best portable Bluetooth speakers
£30 | mobilefun.co.uk
At just £30, the SW50 seems to be a bit of a steal. This 7cm-wide speaker – small enough to slip into Darth Vader’s clutch bag – pairs with any Bluetooth A2DP device and deals with hands-free calls too. Battery life is a rather lacklustre three hours for music and four for calls, after whichyou’ll need to charge it via micro USB.
It’s small. And it sounds small. It does manage to avoid the ‘drunken wasp in a can’ noise beloved of smartphones, but don’t expect to turn your park social into a P-Diddy bump and grind-a-thon, as bass is nigh-on absent. Still, it’s a doddle to use and at least voices come through clearly. It's got price, style and features down, but the SW50’s sound quality falls short.
