The ARCHEER A320S is a large Bluetooth speaker that packs a powerful punch.
Unlike the usual black boxes the A320S is a beautiful bamboo fronted speaker that has cloth around the sides and the back.
Along the top sit the controls sit along the top and the USB charging port and aux in port are round the back.
Along with the speaker you get a carry case, USB charging cable and an aux in cable for any non Bluetooth items you want to play music from.
As you’d expect from a Bluetooth speaker, setup was very easy, just a matter of pairing the speaker to your mobile.
The A320S doesn’t have any sort of WiFi smarts, so you’re limited to using an external device rather than something like Spotify connect. With the aux in this can be address using something like the recently reviewed low cost AudioCast dongle.
Considering this is a portable speaker the volume and bass on it are super powerful, although a little too bass heavy. It’s got a great volume, it just needs the ability to adjust the bass to a more comfortable level as the mega bass gives an unbalanced sound to most music.
The loud volume and booming bass sound more like a mains powered speaker than something you can pop in your bag and take out and about, given these could be used as your main speakers it’s a pity they’re not designed to be plugged into the wall full time.
If you want to visibly check out the power of the speaker stand some paper behind it and turn up the volume, you’ll see the paper pushed away by the air being punched out of the A320S.
If one of these power houses isn’t enough for you the A320S has a trick up it’s sleeve, buy a second unit and they can be paired together! It’s very quick and easy to pair the speakers and it’s really great that you can use the controls on either, e.g. press pause on one will pause on both, rather than being limited to using the first speaker only.
The paired speakers work very well in the same room, if you put them too far apart or put them in different rooms so walls are between them you’ll likely find the connection breaks up, but for a same room setup this offers a really great way to fill your room with music from relatively small speakers.
Archeer have managed to create a highly powerful speaker, one that will be too bass heavy for most people, which is more than enough to fill a large room. If you really want to get your house shaking add a second and crank up the volume.
