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.
The SP-906BT will provide you with hours of music/calling performance at a super low price, this is more than just a BT speaker it is also a great hands free device, because of this we will review it the same way we review a headset.
Clarity of Sound 4.5 out of 5: Highs and lows sound amazing, this little speaker can really impress you and anyone in the room with you. On the go it just sounds great. Comparing it to much more expensive portable speakers it clearly is in a league of its own.
Clarity of Mic 2 out of 5: The mic is far from perfect and is the weakest point on the SP-906BT, though it is not the worse mic I have ever heard or used it is far from the best, the sound quality of the mic is about on par with any android or apple speaker phone.
Portability 4 out of 5: Small, lightweight and with a handy carabiner the SP-906BT is truly a go anywhere speaker, featuring a 5-10 hour battery and a pro model with a 3.5mm jack for only $5 more the SP-906BT is hands down a must for anyone who wants music on the go but does not want to use headphones.
Value Added Features 3 out of 5: Portable with some of the best controls I have seen on a low cost speaker as well as a voice assistant that tells you that calls are coming in, if its pairing, max or mute volume and the number of the caller are all great features that we were amazed to see in such a low cost speaker.
Construction 5 out of 5: Other than the fact the side can show oil if you’re eating something before using the SP-906BT the speaker feels and is extremely durable, weather your kids or your dog are running around with this speaker you have little to worry as I dropped it a few hundred times and it showed little to no wear and tear and just kept rocking along.
Warranty and Price 4 out of 5: Where the warranty may not turn any heads at their standard 1 year the price will, for myself a $24.99 speaker if it ever broke would cost less to just pick up another instead of shipping it back out. Genius worked magic into the SP-906BT and somehow kept the price super low.
With all that we have to award the SP-906BT our “Innovation Award” due to the great sound it provides and the fact the battery just keeps going and going and never seems to quit.
We awarded the SP-906BT with our “Real Deal Award” this is given to items that show value far beyond what the price tag would dictate. When people tell you “You get what you pay for” they have never tried the SP-906BT as this is one speaker that is way out of the norm on quality and cost.
