    Soundcore Flare Mini Bluetooth Speaker Review

    Subsidiary company Soundcore, that’s part of a bigger brand (together with Anker, Eufy, Nebula, and Roav) known as Anker Innovations, is focused on creating products that revolutionize expectations for audio quality, while providing consumers with accessible solutions when it comes to price. Meet the Flare Mini, one of the company’s coolest Bluetooth speakers that “amplifies the atmosphere; any time, any place.”

    The Soundcore Flare Mini Bluetooth Speaker is only slightly larger than a can of soda, meaning its small size makes it the perfect portable speaker. With such a small, yet powerful speaker, you can take the party anywhere with its built-in Dual 5W Full-Range Drivers. The speaker weighs 16.9 oz (480 g) and measures 5.5 inches long by 3.4 inches wide by 2.8 inches tall (141 x 86 x 72 mm). The Flare Mini is rated IPX7 waterproof, meaning it’s dressed for every occasion, including pool parties, ensuring it will effortlessly withstand spills, rain, and even complete submersion in water. The Flare Mini uses Anker’s proprietary battery technology, delivering up to 12 hours of continuous party-beats and incredible illumination from a single charge. Charging it up takes 3.5 hours via it’s Micro USB 5V / 1A input. Within the box, users will find: a costumer info card; a Quick Start Guide/Instruction Manual; a Micro-USB cable; and the speaker itself.

    The Soundcore Flare Mini Bluetooth Speaker features 360° sound, meaning the Flare Mini’s intense all-around sound offers everyone in the space “a face full of atmosphere”. It comes equipped with BassUp™ technology to enrich and intensify a song’s low frequencies, adjusting and enhancing the bass in real-time, combined with the Flare Mini’s back-to-back rare-earth drivers, dropping 360º of pure audio power.

    The Flare Mini also comes with the AUDIO FIREWORKS feature, meaning users can choose one of five different lighting modes to match the mood, by simply pressing a button. This will light up the circular base of the device, and the Flare Mini’s beat-driven light show will react to the beat, pumping up the atmosphere. Featuring Wireless Stereo Pairing, users can also pair up two of these speakers via a single Bluetooth device and take the party into a new dimension, offering a beat-driven light show that syncs across both speakers. Its Bluetooth connectivity works within a maximum range of 66ft (20m).

    The Soundcore Flare Mini Speaker’s interface is located on the top of the device, arranged in a circular display, featuring 6 buttons. The power button is located on the top middle of the circle, the Bluetooth connectivity button on the top left, and the AUDIO FIREWORKS (Lights) button on the top right. On the bottom left, there’s the Volume Down button, on the opposite side (bottom right) there’s the Volume Up button, and on the bottom middle of the circular interface we can find the Play/Pause button (pressing it twice skips to the next track, and tapping it three times goes back to the previous soundtrack).

    The Soundcore Flare Mini Bluetooth Speaker is only available in Black and it’s currently priced at $50. If you’re interested in getting your very own Soundcore Flare Mini to “turn up the lights and light up the sound,” you can find it at Soundcore’s website, by clicking here.
