Design and Features

It is sleek and black in colour, with the entire cylindrical body being made of rubberised material. The feel is smooth and neat. On the bottom of the pot shaped Bluetooth device, there is an on-off switch for power. On the front, there is a mic to answer voice calls from your phone. The grill is metallic with a matte finish.

The rear side has the micro USB charging port, auxillary port and LED indicator for charging. The most distinguishable feature of this device is its compact build. The base diameter is around 5.5 centimetres and the maximum height is only about 9.5 centimetres. These stats make this speaker one of the most portable ones on the market today.

The battery will run for around six hours when fully charged. It takes around two hours to complete charging.

One drawback of this product is that the auxillary cable and charging cable are only 1.5 feet in length which is inconvenient for use. Another disadvantage is that there is no volume control on the speaker itself. Volume has to be adjusted at the source. Moreover there is no control to change tracks or a provision for FM radio, either.

How does it sound?

Firstly, the design projects the sound mostly towards the front direction which can cause muffling. The initial reaction is that Portronics Pot is impressively loud. Even in a large hall, you would be able to hear the audio through this speaker clearly.

When listening to dance or electronic music, there is a bit of a drop in the mid-range, but overall, it is well-balanced and even. Although heavy bass makes this little speaker vibrate, the output lacks clarity. Bass is definitely not this speaker’s strong suit.

The response of these speakers to a lyric-heavy pop song was average. There is a lack of definition and the speaker tends to run on the shrill side. Slow, mellow tracks fair far better than faster tracks with solid beats.

Overall, for the price, this product is good if you are looking for something loud enough to jam to.

Verdict

The Sound Pot definitely delivers a big punch in terms of volume. Some of the major disadvantages are the lack of controls for volume, track changes, answering or cutting calls. Another drawback is the lack of good bass handling. Overall, it is definitely value for money as a good quality portable audio device.
