Loudspeakers are a product category that stands out for its
. Thus, for example, there are designed to be used outdoors, while we go on a trip or as a complement to the television in the living room. But did you know that there are also party speakers? Its aesthetic is very particular because they project lights to the rhythm of the music. The shape of some even reminds of a suitcase with wheels and they come with one or more microphones to have a fun time for karaoke lovers.
What party speakers have we chosen?
The following selection is made up of five models that, in addition to incorporating a lighting system, are portable and, thanks to their Bluetooth technology, are easily paired with a tablet or mobile phone. These are the selected party speakers: JBL Pulse 4 (8.75), Metronic 477183 (6.75), Muse M-1915 DJ (9), Sony SRS-XB402M (8.75) and Woxter Rock’n’Roller XL (7.25).
Each one has obtained a final average assessment from the analysis of the aspects indicated:
- Design: with special attention to materials and construction qualities.
- Autonomy: although some can also be connected to the electric current, they all work through a battery that must be recharged beforehand. The greater the autonomy, the better.
- Sound: how does the speaker sound? Is the sound crisp and clean or, on the contrary, is it distorted?
- User experience: if the speaker meets our expectations, is it easy to use, what other extra features does it offer, does it allow music to be played through other media than just Bluetooth technology?
Comparative best speaker for parties: this is how we have tested them
As we usually do with other speaker comparisons, we have used each of these five proposals for several days to check their operation, what possibilities they offer, the sound experience, if the battery life lasts long or short… We have used them both in open spaces as closed. Bon Jovi, Dua Lipa, Taylor Swift, Pink, Ed Sheeran, Alanis Morissette or The Weeknd are some of the artists listened to.
Muse M-1915 DJ Bluetooth Party Speaker – Our Pick and Best Value
We recovered this speaker from Muse that we had the opportunity to test a few months ago in the comparison ‘ The best Bluetooth speakers with radio ‘. Like the Metronic and Woxter models, it has a trolley shape and has a telescopic handle and two wheels at its base that rotate perfectly.
Formwork in wood, it is especially striking as soon as you take it out of its box; a sensation that quickly increases when you turn it on and it begins to project an ambient light of different colors that perfectly simulates the party atmosphere. Although its 150 watts of power could give much more of itself, the truth is that the sound experience does not disappoint you thanks to the fact that the sound is very clean and the manufacturer manages to balance the audio just as well. Any possible distortion is reduced to a minimum. You can control the volume through a very easy-to-handle control wheel: the level you choose will be reflected on the digital display on the front.
