The Soundcore 2 advertises "Huge Stereo Sound" which at first I thought was a marketing ploy/gimmick. Upon further testing of this little guy, it truly is a stereo speaker. Initially, I expected to hear both left and right audio channels play through both drivers (mono mix) but further listening/testing reveals that the left audio channel is indeed played through the left driver and the right audio channel is indeed played through the right driver.
I verified using older Van Halen tracks (David Lee Roth era) where the guitar is panned hard left...sure enough, close listening (you need to get the speaker close to your head/face and centered) reveals a true left/right stereo image.
I also tested using Audacity (audio editing software) where you can pan/isolate the audio channels with the same result.
The SoundCore 2 is turning out to be my favorite speaker as far as sound quality goes (not great with sheer volume however), even beating out the more powerful Motion Q.
