Roker S-Cannon Wireless Stereo Portable Bluetooth Speaker – Performance

The Roker S-Cannon Wireless Stereo Portable Bluetooth Speaker is packed with a 40mm speaker driver that produces 3-Watt sounds with enhanced bass. Although the Roker S-Cannon is designed with a tiny, compact body, the sound quality it delivers is not disappointing at all.

We tested it with numerous tracks, including Drake’s “Hotline Bling” and The Weeknd’s “The Hills”, and we observed that this portable wireless speaker sounds pretty decent at all. The vocals were absolutely clear and clean, although distortions were quite dominating at higher volume levels. The bass output was also decent. While playing some bass-intensive tracks we saved in our iPhone 6S Plus, the “enhanced” bass was actually strong which is very surprising for a tiny, compact, portable wireless speaker in its affordable price range. If it is compared with the sound quality of other premium portable wireless speakers in the market, we would say that it is one of the best in its $19.99 price range.

When it comes to the Roker S-Cannon Wireless Stereo Portable Bluetooth Speaker’s power source, it also features a built-in rechargeable Li-ion 400mAh battery that powers it up for a playback time of up to 5 hours. It may not be impressive for some (especially those who loves to party or simply stream music at longer hours) but for us, it is already a pretty good battery life considering its size and price.


Roker S-Cannon Wireless Stereo Portable Bluetooth Speaker – Design

The Roker S-Cannon Wireless Stereo Portable Bluetooth Speaker is a tiny or compact portable wireless speaker that measures 2 x 2 x 1.6 inches and weighs only 8.1 ounces. If you are one who likes bringing your music outdoors like in a park or at your school’s ground, then having the Roker S-Cannon Wireless Stereo Portable Bluetooth Speaker is not a problem at all. It is hassle-free and looks premium too!

The body of the Roker S-Cannon is made from unique silver alloy housing with “screw thread” or linings that resembles a screw. This kind of design does not only help in making it look premium but it also contributes on assisting you to grip it properly and firmly, just to avoid unnecessary incidents like sliding or dropping. On top of this portable wireless speaker is where the speaker grille (covering the 40mm speaker driver) and the Roker logo are found. On its lower sides are where certain controls and functions are placed like the sliding panel for Play/Pause (and Call/Answer), Skip Forward/Backward (which also serves as volume controls when long-pressed), pin hole for the microphone, status indicator, and a micro-SD card slot as an easier and more convenient music source. At the bottom of the Roker S-Cannon is where the power panel is found alongside a rubber stopper to avoid the speaker to slide on any surfaces.

Roker S-Cannon Wireless Stereo Portable Bluetooth Speaker – Connectivity

The Roker S-Cannon Wireless Stereo Portable Bluetooth Speaker can be used via Bluetooth 3.0 or Auxillary input. If you prefer wireless connections with your iPhone, iPad, Samsung smartphones, tablets, and other devices, then you can easily pair and connect it using Bluetooth. If you don’t have any available devices or just prefers a wired connection, then you can use its 3.5mm input to make it work.

In addition to that, which is surprising for us is the availability of a speakerphone capability for this portable wireless speaker. Although it is a portable speaker that belongs to a lower price range, the Roker S-Cannon Wireless Stereo Portable Bluetooth Speaker does not disappoint that it also added a built-in microphone to enable wireless, hands-free calls. Very impressive, Roker!
