Product Description Review
- Build quality and design
Anker products generally have minimal construction materials as this helps keep costs down without sacrificing sound quality. Even so, this premium Anker speaker looks great. The front of the speaker is fully meshed and covered with a fine fabric that gives it a good grip and a retro feel. The nice design upgrade gives it a sleeker look than the previous model
The pretty rectangular shape design looks more like something you want to showcase in your living room rather than hiding it on a desk. The overall design is therefore a retro / modern mix. At the top, there are four buttons – a power button, play/pause, volume up and down. On the side, it has an aux input and power connections.
The Anker premium stereo Bluetooth 4.0 speaker features a standard range of 33 feet. Pairing is very easy and it will also automatically reconnect to the last device you used, which is nice. You don’t have to dive into settings to reconnect to the speaker. The Anker Premium speaker also has a wired connectivity option and comes with a 3.5mm jack.
To pair the Anker premium stereo Bluetooth 4.0 speaker with a Bluetooth device, all you have to do is press the play button for five seconds. Then look for the speaker in your device’s Bluetooth settings. You will receive a sound notification once the pairing process is complete. You can connect it to a PC, laptop, smartphone, iPad, iPhone, and other devices via Bluetooth or cable.
Holding down the volume up button will also skip tracks, and holding down the volume down button will skip to the previous track. Playback is smooth as long as you are within range of the speaker.
