In this Bluetooth speakers review piece, I suggest two top-rated wireless speakers around 5000 Rupees budget from the brands which yet to create a big name for themselves in the Indian market. However, one thing I can promise upfront that the speakers are of top-notch quality. With unique functionality and their distinct performance – one of them would surely win your heart. Besides, their buyers turned users have rated them as Bluetooth speaker best buy.
Right price, a great design, unique user-friendly controls, and outstanding performance are some essential characters of both the speakers. Everything on the two top wireless portable Bluetooth speakers is copacetic.
You might have a question if I am so sure about the quality of both the speakers, why then two–why not only one top option? Good question! See, both the speakers are the first-class choice in the market today. The reason behind recommending them together is — fundamentally, we did not find many variations as far as their performance, build, and other essential characters are concerned. We cannot have a biased approach towards one particular product. We had no specific reason for selecting one speaker and dishonoring another when both the options seem to be an outstanding choice at their current prices. Both the speakers with features and price are before you. You can judge better — which one would be the best fit for your requirement.
► Ultimate UE Wonderboom Wireless Portable Bluetooth Speaker
There are many great reasons why you must consider the Ultimate brand Wonderboom wireless speaker. It is a multipurpose Bluetooth speaker. It can connect with mobile, tablet, LED TV, computer, Laptop and also with another Wonderboom speaker. Moreover, it produces 360 degrees loud & clear sound. And BASS level in the audio output is quite impressive. Its battery quality is remarkable and lasting, as well.
Connectivity Features: The Bluetooth speaker device can pair — not just with one or two, in fact, up to eight devices at one time. Moreover, it can also pair with another Wonderboom speaker, or two Wonderboom speakers can connect with one source to play music concurrently. Isn't this a great feature on a 5000 Rupees Bluetooth portable speaker?
As far as its Bluetooth range is concerned, that is approx. 100-ft. In that field, the connectivity strength between the portable speaker system and the music-producing source remains at best. In fact, a range of hundred feet is far excellent. You do not need more than this in daily use. Thus, I would happily recommend this wireless speaker for home party, outdoor picnic, or watching cinema with the whole family.
→ How Awesome is Sound Quality of this Wireless Speaker?
This speaker beats even top-selling portable speakers of JBL, Philips, and Sony in performance. For instance, it has the 3D sound effect (or 360-degree sound effect). Watching cinema with such sound while door and Windows are closed and lights are off might give a feel of like — you are sitting in a cinema hall. Such impressive sound effect this 5000 Rupees wireless speaker can produce. I do not remember any of JBL or Philips best-selling speakers can produce such advanced audio.
The Wonderboom wireless speaker consists of two 40-mm active drivers and two passive radiators 46.1 mm x 65.2 mm. And, according to the official website, the maximum sound level is 86dBC.
Absolutely no complain as far as audio clarity and BASS level in it is. You listen to something on a high pitch or low pitch sound that has no bearing on the quality of audio reaching to your eardrum. I loved the BASS performance of this Ultimate brand speaker. In fact, that could be safely termed best bass in a portable speaker.
The output capacity of this Ultimate Bluetooth speaker is 10-Watts. That is more than enough to shake up not only your room but flat, too. However, is the loudness of this speaker is indeed enough? It depends on users per se. I found the speaker quite loud, but it may not be appropriately sufficient loud for others and you. However, one thing is for sure that its audio output is not meek, rather impactful.
→ Build and battery Life of this Bluetooth Speaker
The last Bluetooth speaker I reviewed for Gadgets Shiksha was the Samsung Level Box SLIM. It was a waterproof speaker with voice calling. Samsung sales the excellent, In fact, I would say the best Bluetooth speaker in India at around 6500 Rupees. However, in 5000 Rupees, you could buy this Wonderboom speaker; it also has a waterproof coating (IPX7).
The build of this top-rated wireless portable speaker is a bit bulky. Its weight 425 grams does not make it the lightest Bluetooth speaker. However, more substantial weight means its overall build is quite sturdy– not easily breakable. Because of its heavier weight, however, it is not an ideal wireless speaker to carry on a tour. Caring almost 500 grams extra in a travel bag is not a practical notion.
While connectivity control functions are on the top side of this recommended wireless speaker for computer as well, volume control is on its front side. Adjusting tune for your ear comfort hence becomes a lot easier. Especially its volume control function is easily reachable.
→ The Battery life of one of the best wireless speakers for laptop
The brand Ultimate claims to have this wireless speaker for mobile also– roughly ten hours of music play time. That, however, is not the actual backup users get in its daily use. A fully charged battery lasts only seven to eight hours, in general.
Besides, to fully charge the battery initially two and half hours needed. However, after few months of use, the duration changed to three to three and half hours. Besides, one major drawback is not having a battery indicator on this wireless speaker.
- A great build with User-friendly control
- Faster Wireless connectivity
- Excellent Audio Output- 3D Sound Effect
- Decent Music Listening time
- A waterproof Bluetooth Speaker
- Advanced connectivity options
- No Battery Indicator
- Occasional Bluetooth Pairing failure
- A bit heavier build
- No charger in the Sales (I do not see this as cons. You can use any USB charger using the wire given in the sales box of this wireless speaker)
Conclusion: When all is said and done, in my opinion, one should also consider the Samsung Level Box SLIM at 6500 Rupees. Primarily, the Ultimate WonderBoom performs better in sound quality. It has 3D surround sound, which the Samsung Bluetooth speaker does not. However, the Samsung Bluetooth speaker has power bank and calling function, withal.
At the price of 5000 Rupees, this Ultimate top rated wireless portable speaker is an excellent choice. Not many functions and a powerful battery onboard still you should consider it for its audio quality, which is unbelievably outstanding.

► Envent Live Free 590 Wireless Bluetooth Speaker
Started in 2011, Envent is an Indian brand, and its main headquarter is in Gurugram. Especially in the Audio system business, our local names have upper hand over top foreign brands. Intex has achieved great success, and it seems soon Envent would repeat the success story. The brand boAt, a top name in earphone & headphone market today, has just unseated JBL and Philips from the top position — is also an Indian brand.
Therefore, you can trust products of Indian brands when buying the audio system. In fact, nowadays Indian brands sale better audio system on affordable prices than some top established names in the world market.
The Envent Live Free 590 Bluetooth speaker is much more potent than the one top wireless speaker reported earlier is. It comes with 24-Watts audio output whereas the Ultimate Wonderboom Portable speaker has only 10-Watts output.
Read the official description of this portable speaker best. The company seems to be positioning it against JBL flip series of Bluetooth speakers. In fact, the official webpage for Envent LiveFree 590 provides lots of information on this Bluetooth speaker comparison with JBL flip wireless speakers.
→ Envent Livefree 590 Bluetooth Speaker Features
If you were looking for just a top rated wireless portable speaker, then this Event Live Free speaker would work best. It has no unique features per se. However, it has extra features, and it could produce thunderous sound, too.
What is great about this — one of the best Bluetooth speakers in India today is the balance of its features. To produce 24-Watt audio, it requires a robust battery onboard. The audio output is loud, so naturally, it would devour more battery power in less time. Hence, this portable speaker has to have the necessary battery backup to maintain the sound level for close to nine hours. The 4000 mAh battery of the Envent 590 needs three to four hours of charging. That gives almost eight to nine hours of music playing time. This is what called a balance of features.
Smart Communication: The connectivity options on this portable speaker system is not just one, in fact, many. With Bluetooth 4.1, it becomes a convenient wireless mobile speaker system. It connects fast, and reliability of connectivity is quite stable, too. Moreover, audio systems not having Bluetooth option can connect to this Bluetooth speaker device using its AUX cable.
At last is its direct mode features. This portable speaker system also has built-in TF card support. Just enter your preprogrammed mobile SD card in it to play your favorite tracks. It also supports playing sound clips hosted on a pendrive.
Thus, Envent Livefree 590 is all-in-one Bluetooth speaker, which can connect via Bluetooth as well as wire and play songs from an SD card as well as Pendrive. This portable speaker system is also for making voice calls. It is a Bluetooth speaker and microphone inbuilt.
→ Build and Design of this Even Live Free Wireless Speaker
The design of this top rated wireless portable speaker is cylindrical. That closely resembles with a wireless speaker bottle design. All the connectivity options are at one side. There are five buttons in the control ring to perform actions like power, play/pause, next, back, and calling. The default communication channel is Bluetooth. However, you can change it according to your requirement.
The body of Envent Live Free 590 is made out of high-quality plastic but has a rubberized feel too. Instead of IPX7, which is on Ultimate Wonderboom Bluetooth speaker, it has got an only IPX4 rating for waterproof resistance. Hence, it is not a Bluetooth speaker thoroughly waterproof. It has enough coating to protect is from dust and shower, however. I think that much protection is enough.
