Subtitle: Anker Soundcore 2, It works well.
It is no secrets to most friends that Marcus is an avid listener and proponent of the BBC Radio 4 sitcom: The Archers. In fact I have listened to the series for well over 30 years now.
But what my extended family may not realise is that my first daily listen is usually in the shower via my Anker Soundcore 2 speaker
A Tough Gig
If you are thinking of an idea for a startup business, never, ever, consider Bluetooth speakers. Why? Because these products are extremely cheap with fiercely competitive pricing and offer many features. I just can't imagine how I can get all the following for about 40 GBP ...
- Upto 24 hour battery life using inbuilt rechargeable battery with micro USB charge socket
- V2 (this one) has a rubber covering of the USB charge socket making it water resistant IPX7. Make sure you get this model and not the older V1 which does not have the cap
- It's really loud
- It has Bluetooth 4.x
- It has a mic so you can use it in conference calls
- Available in other colours than Black, but clearly black is best :-)
- Nice rubbery surface that is slip resistant and makes me think it will survive a drop or two
- This latest model can pair with another for stereo and even louder playback.
- Note I don't recommend the slightly less waterproof, Soundcore Boost, the Soundcore 2 is the one to go for. - NB2: You definitely don't need a case. It is pretty tough.
Back to the Shower
And with that; it is back to Clarrie, Eddie, Jazzer and Joe as they bring me upto speed about the events of
The tale of everyday country folk in Ambridge
