KROOTS Portable – Way better than expected.

I am seriously blown away by how good this speaker really is. It is bigger and much more substantially built than the product photo is able to show. I just wanted a splash proof speaker to put in the bathroom and saw this on a lightening deal for £6. 99 normally so to be honest i wasn’t expecting a great deal. It looks really, really cool in the silver colour, but the sound quality seriously is ridiculously good, never mind ridiculously good for a speaker that i have paid £6. 99 for, just ridiculously good period. If some one had told be that what i was looking at and listening to was a speaker that cost £30+ i would have believed them and still thought that it was punching way above it’s weight in terms of sound quality & style. Don’t even think about it or waste time looking around if you want a seriously good low cost speaker for £9. 99, you honestly will not be in the slightest bit disappointed. If they do the lightening deal offer again at £6. 99 it has to be one of the best bargains you will find on amazon. I like music on where ever and when ever so am partial to kit that makes things sound good, this just brings a huge smile to my face when i think i have paid so little for something that makes music sound this good. Astonishing, it honestly is.

Easy to carry and it is so handy especially if you go out to parks quite often. The device also has a decent sound quality. If you’re non-stop music listener, this portable speaker would be more than enough.

Brilliant speaker, great sound. Good price for a quality speaker.

Looks good and connects easily. Start-up messaging is startlingly loud though – not sure i will ever get used to it.

Great little bluetooth speaker for the price. Will probably get a couple more. Actually bought a second one but was charged an extra £1.

Good little speaker for the money. Loud enough for an average sized room. Had a couple of things from betron now.

I had search for a pillow speaker and this came up in the results. It is s little too thick to be a pillow speaker, though i could see the thickness in the pictures. The main thing is it’s too powerful for me to use as an under pillow speaker. Even with my device volume set to its lowest setting it is still too loud for me.

Good quality little speaker with big sound. Great for shower conacted to echo dot. Volume up and down buttons also can be used to skip and previous track what a bonus. Would have gladly paid £30+ for this speaker. Need a portable bluetooth speaker look no further. Easy simple 360degree sound splash proof easy connection and a nice sound for this price it’s a steal.

Got one for my brother in law who loved it and also one for my father to use it in the garden. Quite loud and clear for its size and easy to use. Comes with usb charger as well.

Very pleased with sound battery life etc. Packed well and speedy delivery.

Very good value and for its size iit has a great sound.

Good sound but hard to connect via bluetooth which is a pain when it doesn’t always automatically connect to it. Here are the specifications for the KROOTS Portable:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Strap the wireless speaker to your bike, backpack, kayak or wherever else you want to take your music
  • Easy to use, loud bluetooth speaker
  • Lighter than a can of soda: Ultra-portable speaker and so light you will forget you are even carrying it
  • 10 Meters Bluetooth Range, up to 5 hours Battery Life, 360 Degree Sound
  • Portable travel bluetooth speaker

I bought this to replace my under pillow speaker as it looked relatively smooth and could connect via aux as well as bluetooth. I needed something i could quietly use in the middle of the night when i wake up to lull me back to sleep. It’s definitely not suited to that, as when you turn it on regardless of whether it is already connected via aux and what volume you left it on. It will chime loudly and declare “bluetooth mode” to which i then have to switch it to the correct aux mode and it will proudly declare “aux mode” and only then can you turn the volume down. It is also too big to put under the pillow. But it’s very loud so i use it as a regular bluetooth speaker in the day when i’m doing stuff in various rooms, i put it in the hallway and it’s loud enough to be heard. The only issue i have using it this way is if i pause the music or audiobook, after a short period of time (a minute or two) it’s automatically turns itself off so you have to turn it on again and select the mode of connection you want (it’s not automatic)the one plus really is that it’s very loud, i probably wouldn’t buy it again though.

Fantastic on the go speakers, not the greatest sound quality but decent if you just need something in the background. Has a bizarre english asian accent to inform of connection and battery being low. You can throw people off bluetooth by connecting afterwards so it’s easy work to switch between phones.

Fab quality great company i ordered more than one as a gift highly recommend.

So cute, great sound, easy peasy to set up & charge.

Don’t think much, just buy it.

Well made, good quality sound and small enough to be used as a pillow speaker. The buttons could be laid out better and made a bit more intuitive, but this is a minor point really.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Not suitable for under the pillow.
  • Beware of search results – not really a pillow speaker
  • Way better than expected.

Great little speaker, excellent sound, annoying voice prompts but hey it all adds to its charm. Comes with a handy carabineer to attach to things, usb cable and 3. Excellent as a stand alone speaker for my laptop.

Prompt delivery and good functionality.

Only just started using this mostly because i thought it would’nt be good. How wrong i was, this is a fabulous little speaker, easy to link to bluetooth & with lovely sound.

Great sound quality, alarger than expected brought as gift for older son who is v pleased.

Way better than expected and being splash proof means one is permanently deployed, near the shower. It’s not hugely loud and that’s fine by me because instead, it has a natural sound across the whole sound range. It copes equally well with hip-hop as it does baroque.

Volum goes upto a certain level, which is fine for me.

Excellent speaker,paired straight away,good sound and easy to use. I had it on quarter volume and it was great.

What i do not like and therefore not use it are: the annoying blue led which is constant on. The loud voice when you connect :’bluetooth on/off’ the annoying loud sound when you switch it on and off.

This product is brilliant and we are super impressed by how loud it is. It has been used every morning by all members of our family for over a week and still has some battery life.

  1. For the 9 months that this functioned properly, it was absolutely fine. The sound quality isn’t great but it’s okay for the price. However, when you turn it on, it plays an annoyingly loud jingle and each time you change function it really loudly states “bluetooth mode” or “aux mode”, which isn’t ideal if you want to play music quietly while neighbours are asleep or whatever. My main issue with the product though is that, after only 9 months, it stopped working. The battery ran low and, when i tried to charge it, it wouldn’t charge. I tried a different cable and the problem persisted.

    Unless using this in the middle of an isolated field, you will find the introductory announcements ridiculously loud. They are not adjustable and would wake the whole household up if used as a device to listen quietly to radio or music in the night time. Just not fit for purpose, so i returned it. The only plus point is that it sounds pretty reasonable once you get past the shock of the welcome announcements.
