The Anker Soundcore 2 is a best-selling Bluetooth speaker known for its high-quality sound at a low price. It has two speakers made of neodymium, and a technique called BassUp is used to boost the bass frequencies. This gives it a full, strong sound. Since the Soundcore 2 is dustproof and waterproof, you can use it outside or in the shower. The battery on this speaker lasts for 24 hours, so you can listen to music for that long.

Our Verdict

The Anker Soundcore 2 is a high-value portable speaker that sounds better than expected and is more portable than expected. Dual neodymium drivers and BassUp technology create a full, powerful sound that works well for all kinds of music. The long battery life is great for a speaker in this price range, and the fact that it can handle water and dust is a big plus for people who want to take it with them.

PROS
  • Impressive sound quality with BassUp technology
  • Waterproof and dustproof design
  • Long battery life of up to 24 hours
  • Affordable price point
  • Compact and durable design
CONS
  • Lacks some of the essential features
