LUXA2 Groovy Duo Live Wireless Bluetooth Portable Speaker Review

By: Chris Smith | Portable Speakers in Audio, Sound & Speakers | Posted: Mar 20, 2015 2:08 am

What's Hot

 

Sturdy: The speaker has some weight and a fairly good finish, expect a few drops to not discourage them whatsoever.

Sound output: If you're going to put these on your desk right in front of yourself, I suggest staying away from 100% - unless you're looking for a nightclub ear-ringer effect.

 

Sound quality even when at full speed ahead: Whether at 20% or 100%, you'll get the same quality of sound pumping out.

 

What's Not

 

Lack of punch: As stated previously, this is likely due to the small frame and speaker size as there's just a big disappointing wave that washes over you when the bass drops, as it's simply just not there.

Lack of clarity: An issue that plagues every speaker, if you're an audiophile fan of classical music, you really need some headphones instead.

 

The Price: For $79.99, you'd likely be better off going for a Braven Mira singular speaker and buying an external battery pack to keep it pumping tunes for a long time.

 

 

Final Thoughts

 

These speakers feel sturdy, they're loud and provide adequate sound for most users looking at a travel companion. They're marketed as a perfect at-home option, but honestly, I'd steer clear as there are plenty of home-speaker options provided by companies like Logitech that will do a better job - but if you're looking for wireless, this might just be the product for you.

For those on the road or running a house party, the ability to split up the speakers and pump out a good volume of music means that this speaker certainly provides a purpose. We'd be looking at a real winner here if only it was $15 or so cheaper. We've come to accept that paired speakers means a $20-$40 added price when compared to a singular unit, but I don't think it should be be that way.

The Bottom Line: LUXA2's Groovy Duo is sturdy, portable, reliable and loud, however, the $79.99 price tag lets it down overall in my opinion.
