It's still on offer, I'm tempted.
Buy 2 for that stereo effect
. Pair two speakers* via a single Bluetooth-enabled device for a huge hit of stereo sound; 24W of portable audio intensity.

If you have any doubt about these, dont!

They are a quality unit and I have 3 of them (one original, two soundcore) and I also have a BOSE speaker, and these units hold their own against it.

They also make a great gift which has me tempted to pick up a couple more to gift over the year.

I have an older Soundcore 10w, think it's terrific. Tempted to upgrade to these, how well does the stereo pairing work? And do you need to re-pair everytime you turn both on, or do they automatically sync?

I have one of the older versions of this and it's excellent. If you're on the fence, go for it. It's a great speaker.

I just grabbed myself one of these to use as a bathroom speaker............ I don't even need it

Thanks OP

Anyone ever get issues with MyMemory and customs? - based on Jersey so this could end up having a VAT/Duty bill attached. Have not bought from them in a while and never had issues previously.. but just wondering if that may have changed.

I know it's hard to be specific as such but how loud are these? I had a UE Megablast i picked up on black Friday but found it distorted over halfway and ended up returning. I'm looking for something with some punch so wondering how this may compare or should I be looking at something bigger?

my similar older ones would be similar enough to my UE Boom , so may not be quite what you are looking for. Because they are relatively cheap, I would use them in construction equipment, and the volume is plenty load enough for that

I got the more powerful Soundcore Motion + in the sale. It's very impressive.

Good deal, but tbh if you can afford a bit more you'll see the 20W Anker discounted from time to time for as little as ~Eur45. Worth the extra money for the extra power.

These speakers are terrible.

A comparison to the Soundcore boost will really show you how weedy the Soundcore motion B is.

Your not really comparing like with like.
Motion B 27e, 12W
Boost approx 60e, 20W

Of course motion b won't sound as good as the boost.
What u expect?

At 27 euro I guess its acceptable. But the Soundcore motion B at full price is a bad performer.

A second hand sony XB30 and onwards or a second hand Sound core boost is worlds apart and money better spent IMO. Which both act as a charger for your phone as well.

I have not heard the motion B when paired to a second device. Which im sure would improve the lack luster bass and hard to hear mid tones.

If you're worried about mid-tones then i'm not sure a thread about a €27 speaker is the right place for you
