I was looking for a portable speaker for my parents which has Bluetooth and FM radio function and I stumbled upon Blaupunkt BT-01 Portable Bluetooth Speaker. It is a very small speaker with only 3W RMS and a single top firing speaker.
It has features like Bluetooth, FM radio, AUX input, and SD card playback. The next button required a long press to activate these functions one after another. AUX and SD card will only come when an AUX input or SD card is put in the slot.
Bluetooth pairing is seamless and so is the playback. Volume can be increased or decreased by long-pressing the volume buttons.
FM radio scanning can be done by pressing the forward button but it takes few seconds to scan the channel and 2 button presses to accurately tune into a proper FM channel. Volume plus-minus button can be used to change between saved channels but it never worked for me.
In short, it is ordinary but acceptable for the size and price. Bass is hardly present. Mids and highs are also not that good. There is nothing premium about the sound quality of this speaker but it can be good for you depending on your requirement. For example, it can be good for people who are not happy with their phone speaker and wants to make it better. But the loudness is not much and you can only consider it a step above the good phone speaker.
Features of the speaker are good and people who want a slight upgrade from their phone speakers can consider buying Blaupunkt BT-01 Portable Bluetooth Speaker.
Sound quality: 3/5
Value for money: 3.5/5
