Philips SBT10 Mini Bluetooth Speaker – Performance

Despite its small, compact size, the Philips SBT10 Mini Bluetooth Speaker exceeds more of what we expected from it.

The sound quality was really great considering its size. Its sound is actually comparable with those portable speakers with larger sizes! We love listening to our favorite tracks with the Philips SBT10 Mini Bluetooth Speaker. What’s coming from this mini portable Bluetooth speaker was a very clear, full, and detailed sound that even if the volume is increased, no distortions were present. Well, thanks to its wOOx technology that, despite being small and compact, it allows this portable speaker to deliver up to its best capacity and sound quality.

It also produces loud and big sound for its small size too! The Philips SBT10 Mini Bluetooth Speaker can fill our medium sized room, perfect for casual, small-grouped parties.

When it comes to sound quality, what we only did not appreciate was its bass output. There are some mini portable Bluetooth speakers out there that deliver strong bass such as the UE Mini Boom. Unfortunately, thePhilips SBT10 Mini Bluetooth Speaker did not meet this standard. Its bass output was not that strong enough to rock out our bass-intensive tracks from Skrillex or David Guetta.

The Philips SBT10 Mini Bluetooth Speaker packs a built-in Lithium ion that’s rechargeable and powers up the speaker for a battery life of up to 8 hours. To recharge it, a Micro-USB cable is included in the package.
