Philips BT3500B review

 

For the money, the Philips is a great, affordable way to go wireless

Excellent sense of rhythm ; Open, expressive sound ; Good detail

Battery life is limited ; Not the most refined top end

Philips BT3500 Bluetooth Speaker Review

 

Philips BT3500B delivers clear dialogue and solid connectivity, at an attractive price, making it worth a look.

Nice, clear audio ; Particularly good with spoken word ; Well priced ; Easy to use

Battery life is disappointing ; Doesn't seem as robust as some

Based on our experiences, we certainly can't think of any firm reasons why you shouldn't. The BT3500 provides a reliable and robust Bluetooth connection and presents audio that is clear and loud enough to fill a small room. It's also very easy to use...

Philips BT3500B Wireless Portable Speaker review

 

I review a lot of wireless Bluetooth speakers, and the first question I tend to ask is, "Why would I buy this speaker over all the other Bluetooth speakers out there?" Or, to put it another way, "What makes it stand out from the rest of the pack?"

The Philips BT3500 is a slim, relatively compact Bluetooth speaker that offers decent sound for an affordable price. It also has built-in speakerphone capabilities and NFC tap-to-pair for devices that support that feature.

Battery life could be a bit better; not the most durable speaker and no protective case is included.

The Philips BT3500 may not excel in any one area, but its slim design is appealing and it delivers decent performance for an affordable price.

Quality Sound!

 

I was blown away after charging this device. It felt like the band was in the room. Only downside I noticed was that when the battery does go bad you have to have a professional to change it.

Quality of sound and Volume! Mini usb charge.

No easy way to replace battery

I love it

 

The sound is great. We purchased it for our hotel room at the beach. It's perfect, light weight and the sound is awesome. Couldn't be happier.

Not dependable, no longevity - bitten twice

 

I, as well, had the same USB issue recently. This product cannot (will not) handle standard, normal-use multiple connecting/reconnecting of a mini-usb cable. Not only did my port start having that typical "won't work unless it's tilted/slanted/cantered...

Flat and lack of texture

 

Wife bought this to use with her Ipad. The base are missing the low khrtz range a and the crisp high frequencies are not existent. The system is loud but in general if you like good sound it is flat. My Altec Lansings for my PC are better than this but...
