What shoppers are saying

This Bluetooth speaker has gained a 4.3 star rating on more than 2,200 reviews, with customers raving about its sound quality and battery life that even rivals pricey brand name speakers.

“Friend had the Bose Bluetooth speaker that's about $230 and to be honest that one was better but as far as sound goes I did not notice much of a difference,” said one reviewer. “This speaker is worth every penny plus more.”

“Just received this speaker and was blown away,” added another. “I would never expect a small speaker and for such a low cost to be so amazing. The sound quality is as good as a speaker three times more expensive.”

Some reviewers have noted that over time their speaker lost the ability to connect to devices, but it’s possible the issue is caused by a faulty battery, as the vast majority of reviews have nothing but positive feedback. 

The verdict

Roughly the same size as a cordless house phone, the Vtin R2 Portable Bluetooth Speaker can fit into backpacks and purses, making it a must-have if you’re looking for a compact speaker that travels well. It also weighs in at just 499g, so you don’t have to worry about lugging around a large speaker when you bring it outdoors. 

Regularly priced at $37, this Bluetooth speaker is one of the most affordable around that still offers quality sound for the price. Now that it’s on sale for just $29, it's an even better deal that’s bound to liven up your next outdoor event.
