OPTA PS-001 Plug-n-Play Portable Wireless Mini Speaker
Ball shape speakers are becoming really famous these days. These types of devices are not only affordable but also portable. The OPTA PS-001 is a lightweight and compact speaker that can be purchased from the market for a really attractive price of 699 rupees.
Decent Audio Quality
This Sound device produces enough loud audio that you will have a decent music listening experience in a small room. I would not dare to recommend using it outdoors as surrounding noise will suppress the audio generated by this speaker. Moreover, the frequency response range of 20 – 20000 Hz promises deep bass and sharp treble. But as there is only a single driver in this speaker, the produced audio will not give the stereo effect.
Small form factor gives this speaker indeed a cute look. You also get to choose from multiple color options including white, red and green. Its outer shell is made of hard plastic that provides durability. However, users will have to take extra care of this speaker because its body is not tough enough to survive a fall.
Ease of Use
In order to enjoy music on this speaker, all you will have to do is attach it to an audio producing device. The good thing is that it is compatible with all the smartphones and music devices that sport a 3.5 mm audio jack.
Can Be Charge Easily
This speaker runs on a battery that can be charged through a USB cable. However, the power backup by the battery will disappoint a lot of customers.
You will not be able to run this device more than 2.5 hours on a single charge. Also, it does not sport a power indicator, so there is no way for the user to know if the device is fully charged or not.
- Hard plastic outer shell
- Runs on battery
- Frequency response range of 20-20000 Hz
- Easy to use
- Is available in multiple color variants
- Bad battery life
- No battery indicator
The reason that I love this speaker is that it produces great quality audio. It is also easy to carry around. However, if the budget is really tight and you cannot afford to spend 700 bucks on a speaker like this, then there are many cheaper alternatives available.

Portable Speaker Music Bubble POR 161
Mobile phones have become an essential part of our daily lives. Nowadays no one buys a separate music player for their music listening needs. However, there is a catch the speakers that modern day mobile phones come equipped with are not loud enough to give a great experience unless an earphone is used. But the fact is there are manufacturers have produced many great portable speakers that are compatible with a wide range of devices.
The Portronics POR 161 Portable Speaker is one such device that offers superb audio quality. At 538 rupees, it is one of the most of affordable portable speakers that you can buy right now.
The speaker comes with a round profile and looks more like a tennis ball. It is so small that you will be able to carry it inside a bag without any kind of hassle. But the materials that manufacturer has used in the making are not of that high quality and the speaker will easily break if you do not take extra precaution.
Good Audio Quality
For the price you pay, the sound quality of this portable is highly appreciable. It produces crystal clear audio with minimal level of noise. Its audio alignment technology helps in generating sharp treble and deep bass. However, users should understand that this speaker is still a budget product, so the music quality will not be as great as other premium level speakers from the brands like Philips offer.
Inbuilt Battery and Good Connectivity Options
It is really a surprising thing that this speaker sports an inbuilt battery even at this price point. On a single charge, its battery gives at least 3-4 hours of power backup, which is more than enough. The speaker features a 3.5 mm audio plug for universal compatibility. This plug is also used for charging the battery. Another great feature of this speaker is that you will be able to listen to music even when the battery is connected to a charger because it comes with a split aux cable.
- 5mm audio plug
- Inbuilt battery offers decent power backup
- Impressive performance
- Can be used while charging
- Poor build quality
For a person who is limited on the budget front, this portable speaker will be a really great option. It offers decent audio quality and also comes with inbuilt battery that offers impressive power backup.

Quace Shower Speaker
There are a lot of people who love listening to music while taking a shower in the bathroom. However, the problem with that is most of the smartphones and portable music devices available in the market today are not waterproof. But you do not have to worry as there is a solution to this issue. The Quace Shower speaker is a highly compact device that comes with a waterproof build. Another interesting fact is that it can be purchased for a really affordable amount of 890 rupees.
Surprisingly, this speaker has got inbuilt Bluetooth connectivity. This helps the users a lot by allowing them to listen to their favorite music even if their smartphone is a few meters away. Moreover, the speaker also sports a built-in microphone, which can be used to make calls.
A vacuum pad at the bottom enables the users to stick this speaker to any kind of flat surface be it a wall, mirror or a metal surface. The manufacturer has also equipped this device with several control buttons, which can be used to change the music track and also to receive calls wirelessly. Its splash-resistant body does not allow even a single drop of water to leak inside and damage the electric circuits. And, as the speaker comes in a compact body, you will not have to make any special place for it.
The driver unit of the speaker is capable of giving an audio output of three Watts. This should be more than enough. In fact, you will experience really loud audio if you are in a compact place like a bathroom. Impedance of four Ohm enables this device to generate stunning sound without consuming much power. Audio can be heard clearly at all the frequencies.
Inbuilt Rechargeable Battery
Like most of the Bluetooth speakers available in the market, this device also runs on a lithium ion battery. You also get a USB to DC cord in the box to charge the battery.
