Patriot BeatStreet Bluetooth Speaker and Clock Review

What's Hot

 

Sturdy: This small speaker should have no issue with being knocked off your desk on occasion.

Sound projection: This small product provides some seriously loud sound.

 

Sound quality even when at full speed ahead: Even when jacked up to 100%, this speaker will provide you with clarity in its sound as seen at 20%. The speakers won't distort and the product won't jump all over the table, but you will certainly notice the lack of bass.

 

What's Not

 

The battery size and life time: The battery is tiny meaning that your Bluetooth playback is limited to just a few hours, this product is better off kept for hotel travel or an at-home device in your kitchen or next to your bed.

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

 

Lack of Bass: Not totally apparent unless you're trying to listen to music at 80%+, if you like it loud you're going to be left disappointed.

 

 

Final Thoughts

 

This speaker is classy, small in stature, and cheap. Patriot has certainly done quite well in their first foray into the speaker scene, however, a larger battery capacity, a more bass-laden speaker, and longer playback times would certainly justify a higher score and even $10 added to the retail price.

Around this price range, there's almost nothing better, I can recommend this product for you as an in-hotel travel option, a bedside companion, or a kitchen-dwelling device. Unfortunately, due to the design materials, smudges are easily put on to the surface, this is shown through the images above after one full week of use.
