I have reviewed a couple of Ambrane portable speakers and
while the company is known for making power banks, for me the company shines in
making some really great Bluetooth speakers. So my excitement was obvious when
it was time for me to review the BT-2000, the smallest Ambrane speaker that I
have ever reviewed. Will it hold up or crumble under the weight of its
The BT-2000 is a very elegant looking cube. With nice finish all around and an all-black façade, this Bluetooth speaker is pleasing to look at. The top has the speaker grille and a shiny chrome-like band running along the edges. The sides have a translucent band running at the bottom, which allows the LED lights to pass through. The illumination is not the brightest but that is not a big problem. What I did not like was that the light seems to be focused a little towards one side. The ‘underglow’ is red while the device is charging and blue when it is paired in Bluetooth mode.
The battery on-board is 400mAh in size and can last longer than most parties. I got close to 6.5 hours’ worth of continuous music play which is sufficient for the size of the speaker. Charging back the device is easily and will take just a little more than half an hour if you use a wall charger. The speaker has a built in microphone that can be helpful in case you need to take a call while the phone is connected to the speaker. There is a handy power saving feature on the speaker that I really liked. When left idle for a long period of time, the speaker will automatically power itself off.
he audio jack, pen drives or memory cards then you might want to look elsewhere.
Coming to the sound output, this one is sure to impress everyone. Though it might look tiny, it can be quite loud and clear as well. The BT-2000 outputs a total of 5W. The bass reproduction was also satisfactory and I was pleasantly surprised to find that no particular frequency band felt unbalanced. The highs, mids and lows, all sound vibrant. When you crank up the volume all the way to the maximum level, you will hear the speaker creak and distort but I do not hold it against the speaker since it is not meant for loud parties in the first place. One department where there were visible compromises is connectivity. Bluetooth is the only mode for connecting and streaming media via this speaker. There is a headphone jack but that is only for listening and not for playing music.
The asking price of the Ambrane BT2000 is Rs 999 and after looking at the physical footprint of the speaker, that might seem a bit too much. Turn it on however, and your opinion will change. It can produce loud and clear sounds and even fit in the smallest of places. So if you want to share music or movies with your friends on the go, or when there is no electricity (which can literally happen anytime in India) the BT2000 is a great pick.
