Hi all,
I want to buy a bluetooth speaker for home use.. for listening to music/FM. Kindly suggest which one to go for. Shortlisted some speakers from online sites..

1. Logitech X100
2. JBL Go
3. JBL Flip II Cricket series
4. Creative Sound Blaster FRee

The Creative one is supposedly the only one which allows playback from a SD card. Please advice if any good speakers are available other than the ones I have listed.

Thanks and Regards

Hey Soumyajit what's your budget ? Your shortlisted speakers are of different price points.

I have the Logitech X100..got it for 1.6k on Amazon....Music quality is quite good for my liking...lacks bass though...Consider it as an upgrade to the regular speakers you find on mobile phones...Its quite loud and it has a mic..so you attend calls too. Battery life is 5-6hrs. Its not a stereo speaker.

Tip:Get a speaker which does not have a propriety charging port.:)

Hi Stormbringer,
Thanks for your reply.
The JBL Flip II is about 6.5k on Amazon. Dont want to stretch beyond that.

I haven't demoed that speaker.So cant comment on it.Check out this review- JBL Flip 2 Review .I checked out their review before buying the Logi X100.Make sure you buy from a genuine seller.Lots of fakes goes around these days.

Thanks.. Good site you suggested. I checked the list of bluetooth speakers below $50. How would the Anker Classic Portable Bluetooth Speaker be? Selling at INR 4,999 on Amazon Anker® MP141 Portable Bluetooth 4.0 Speaker with: Amazon.in: Electronics and INR 3,990 on Ebay Ankerus Classic Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker Built IN Microphone | eBay

Both would be genuine?

That Anker speaker is supposed to be good.But 5k is a bit much for it since its sells in the US for half of the price.The ebay seller is actually importing from US and you wouldn't get any warranty i suppose.See if you can buy directly from Amazon.com.

Checked Amazon.com. Though the speaker is available for $35, after adding delivery charges and import tax, its amounting to Rs 5088.. more than what Amazon.in is charging :razz:

One seller is selling the Anker speakers at Rs 4387.

Though the Logitech X100 seems to be a decent buy at Rs 1607.
