Whether it be for some fun music in a friendly gathering or ambient music on a romantic date, you all might have felt the need for a portable Bluetooth speaker at a point in your life. Bluetooth speakers in this price category are small and compact which makes them a perfect travel companion. Some of the best Portable Bluetooth speakers in Nepal under 10k are as follows.
1.JBL Go 3 (Editor’s choice)
JBL Go 3 is the latest Bluetooth speaker from JBL in its Go lineup. The newly updated design is more robust and muscular as compared to its minimalist-looking predecessor which makes it more durable. This new design also makes it IP67 rated for water and dust protection. It has a 1.5” transducer and has a frequency response ranging from 110Hz to 20kHz. It has more advanced Bluetooth 5.1 for connectivity. JBL claims that the 2.7Whr li-ion polymer battery on the Go 3 can last up to 5 hours of continuous music playback. Its market price is Nrs 5900.
2.Anker Soundcore Icon Mini
The cheapest on this list is the Soundcore icon mini from Anker. This portable Bluetooth speaker has a squarish design with rounded corners and curved edges. It boasts dated Bluetooth 4.2 for connectivity. The Icon Mini comes with dedicated buttons for volume and playback control, power, and pairing along with a cord which makes it easy to carry around. It also has a 3.5mm headphone jack. The speaker has a total output of 3W with an IP67 rating. Its 900 mAh battery can last up to 8 hours. It costs around Nrs 3500.
3.Anker Soundcore Icon
Simply put, Anker Soundcore Icon is the better version of its mini sibling. It comes with a convenient and broad strap that can easily be detached. It has 10W output which is a huge update from Icon mini’s 3W output. Like those mentioned above, it too is rated IP67 water and dust resistant. It has a 2600 mAh battery which can last up to 12 hrs. It costs around Nrs 5800.
Braven 105 is another option in the sub-Nrs 10k range. It has a circular design with a rather odd-looking huge strap on the top. Unlike Soundcore Icon it is only IPX7 rated which makes it only splash-proof. Spec-wise it has a Bluetooth range of around 15m and its 800 mAh battery can last up to 8 hrs. It will cost you around Nrs 5300
5.JBL Clip 3
The last one on this list is also the most expensive one. JBL Clip 3 has a clip frame ring around its circumference instead of a more conventional strap hence the name. It has physical buttons for playback and volume control in its speaker mesh. The frequency response ranges between 100Hz and 20kHz. However, Clip 3 only has an IPX7 rating meaning it is only splash-proof. It boasts a battery of 1000mAh giving it a playback time of up to 10 hours. Its market price is around Nrs 7300
