Buyer's guide: 6 best Bluetooth speakers under Rs 6,000

I am a school teacher and I want to play recorded speeches for my classroom of 50 students from my phone or from my 8GB pen drive. We do not have any extra electrical point in the classroom. Kindly suggest rechargeable Bluetooth speakers in a budget of around Rs 2,000.

I need a Bluetooth speaker to use along with my laptop in a budget of Rs 6,000.
—Chelyn Pereira, Swarnima Uniyal

As much as we'd like to suggest a Bluetooth speaker that ticks all the boxes when it comes to room-filling sound for a class of 50 students, there isn't a single device that meets all the needs in the budget that's been set.

Then, there's also the problem of acoustics. We are not sure of how big the classroom is, and if the speakers that work well for a 15x15-foot room would be loud enough for bigger rooms. But we like challenges, so here are a few workaround solutions to the problem. Besides, those looking for a speaker to use along with their laptops will also be well served by these options...

Zebronics Zebstation Dynamite, ZEB-BT013 (Rs 1,450)
This Bluetooth model comes with support for USB playback as well as an Aux (3.5mm) cable that lets you connect any smartphone, laptop or MP3 player via its audio port. Also, its battery is rated to give around 5 hours on a single charge. While it includes an FM tuner, it does not function as well as a radio receiver.

Portronics Sublime 2 Mobile Speaker (Rs 2,400)
While you can't play files directly from a USB pen drive, these speakers can be connected to your smartphone via Bluetooth, and also include a slot to read from microSD (up to 32GB) cards. Additionally, you get an Aux cable in the box. The Sublime 2 comes with a removable battery that's rated for up to 8 hours of playback, an FM tuner for radio, and even includes a microphone to make and receive hands-free calls.

Jabra Solemate Mini (Rs 3,900)
Almost the same size as the ZebStation Dynamite, the Solemate Mini promises around 8 hours of playback on a single charge. Besides Bluetooth connectivity, you also get an Aux cable that sits snugly in the base of these speakers. The Mini has a robust rubberized build, and also has a built-in microphone for hands-free calls.

Osaki Jukebox (Rs 4,000), JBL Flip (Rs 4,900) & JBL Flip 2 (Rs 5,900)
All three similar-sized models support Bluetooth connectivity, include an Aux port, and have a built-in microphone to handle hands-free calls. The Jukebox comes with its own Aux cable, while the Flip 2 supports NFC, which means you can connect it with compatible devices with just a tap. Rechargeable batteries in all these speakers are rated to give you around 6 hours of playback.
