German audio maker Blaupunkt has launched another new Bluetooth speaker in India with the Blaupunkt BT-52. It’s essentially an upgrade to the BT-51-BL. And while both speakers look identical there are noticeable differences between the two. The Blaupunkt BT-52 portable Bluetooth speaker offers a 10W audio output, FM Radio, a built-in mic, Bluetooth 4.2, as well as a TF card slot with 32GB storage. Priced at INR 1799, let’s find out if it’s worth the money.
Build and Design
While the Blaupunkt BT-52 may not be much of a looker, but it’s well-constructed. It features a compact, rectangle-shaped design which makes it easy to carry wherever you go. It gets a rubber finish on the outer shell while the front speaker is covered in a mesh-like fabric. The control buttons are housed on top while connectivity ports are housed on the right. These include a memory card slot, a 3.5 audio jack, a micro-USB port, and a power on/off button.
Overall, the speaker’s quality works rather well for the price. It is small enough to tuck into places where it isn’t very noticeable in the room and lightweight enough to take anywhere.
Setup is quick and easy, and the connection works well over 30 feet away. Sound quality is impressive – highs and mids are very good, and the bass is not lacking even though the speaker is very small. This product packs lots of sound into a tiny package. I liked the overall sound experience and especially how well this speaker brings out the low end in the music. The speaker even has a TF card slot, so you can carry all your music with you.
The company claims that this speaker comes with a powerful battery that can last for more than 6 hours with moderate usage. And, it did last for around five hours for me, even at full volume.
I really like this little speaker and Blaupunkt has done a mostly great job of putting very good sound into a super small, and portable package. If you’re looking for a Bluetooth speaker that is not only compact, but packs enough punch when you’re listening to music outdoors or indoors, this little speaker really fits the bill. This little speaker is about the size of the palm of my hand, yet provides plenty of punch which makes it ideal for gaming and watching movies.
