Nixeus ARC 4.0 Portable Bluetooth Speaker

Purchased one of these a few weeks ago when they were offered. It’s not bad for the price, but I’d recommend spending a few extra bucks and buying something better. The sound is kind of hollow and the two “woofers” do jack squat. If you have nothing to compare it to, it’s ok, but if you have another BT speaker to test it against, it loses every time.

Have any examples?

For the size/price/weight I’ve not heard anything significantly better. I got it to travel with when I don’t feel like lugging my Big Jambox or KMC1. It can’t compare to those but it’s not trying to.

What sounds better at 30-40 bucks?

I got one the last time around.
It work’s great and pair’s instantly.

Not bad at all for the price.

I also have the Motorola/Sol Deck that you can find online for about $40-50. I did a side-by-side test when I got the Nixeus and the difference is night and day. Although small BT speakers lack much bass, the Deck has a much more defined bass note.

See my comment above. I also like the AmazonBasics BT speaker for $40. My mom has the original and it sounds pretty good for only $40. Definitely better than this one.
