Sometimes looks can be deceiving. The Kedsum portable bluetooth speaker is an example of this as you'll soon see. I picked up this relatively small, sport/outdoor speaker on sale on Amazon because I've been taking my bike out on the trails recently and this speaker has a nice bottom screw hole that lets you attach the speaker to your handle bar with an inexpensive mount kit. It's also IPX5 rated for water and dust resistance so it seemed like I great fit, especially on sale.
What I didn't expect was the huge sound that comes out of this thing. Seriously, it is one of the loudest bluetooth speakers I've heard from any speaker anywhere near its size. The bass is punchy too, but it is tuned a bit on the bright side with a tendency towards treble and high mids on purpose so that the sound travels during outdoor use. Indoor I fire up an equalizer app on my phone and just nudge the treble down a tad and it sounds great...as good or better than many of my higher priced indoor bluetooth speakers.
The speaker is rated at 10 watts and it has some nice extras like a MicroSD card slot and NFC. It's sold under the Trendwood and aLLreLi brands on Amazon and elsewhere and has the model name 'Rockman-L'. They're all the same speaker so whichever is selling cheaper...usually in the $20-$30 range...it's definitely a keeper if you're looking for an outdoor speaker that can get loud and not break the bank...that's also water and dust resistant. I play a bunch of different tunes in the video above so make sure to watch and then let me know what you think in the comments below.
