When it comes to value electronics and computer accessories there are many options out there. One of these options is Genius, they pride themselves on reinventing their image with high quality accessories at super low prices. When it comes to Portable Speakers Genius has really let this vision shine through, The Sp-906BT is a $24.99 speaker that sounds and feels like it should cost well over $100.

First the SP-906BT battery life is something that even Genius cannot decide on as they box says 5 hours, the EU site says 5 hours, USA and Global sites say 10 hours but in our testing we were getting easily 7+ hours and the speaker was still rocking at max volume. For them to claim a 10 hour battery we think this is easily true when running the speaker at 60% volume which is still extremely loud.
The 40mm Driver hit’s hard as you can hear in our video review. Providing both very clear highs and hard hitting lows, Genius did the impossible with the SP-906BT as the speaker quality seems to blow my Logitech 2.1 speakers out of the water.
The introduction of BT 4.1 on the SP-906BT provides you with a low battery usage source for wireless music and easy connect and disconnect.
Though they say it has a range of 30m in our testing after 10 feet the mic will start to make a popping noise while recording or taking calls but the music will play flawlessly all the way up to about 20 meters (this could be a weakness of our test device being the Galaxy S7)
