Oh man, I almost bought this with my last Power User thing, but I'm glad I didn't if I get a chance to test it! I am an avid tester, posted below are some of the sites that I am a part of that allow me to test products and review them along with all my reviews from previous purchases (that are on this forum).
This is an awesome looking and, I'm sure, sounding speaker. I have the Soundcore2, and several other high-quality BT Speakers, including a bose. From experience, it's hard to tell EXACTLY how I can and will test this, but there are definitely ways that will always work. For instance, test its Range, Sound Quality vs. other BT Speakers and even ones that are not Always BT, because if it outperforms some of the speakers I have then it is going to get super high marks! I tend to bring BT with me everywhere I go, usually, with a speaker, not a headset, it can be a burden to carry it around, but the Model Zero's design makes it so that you can carry easily, I love that. It reminds me of old school 80s-90s Boomboxes that people would carry around just to listen to the Cassette they just bought! A little bit of old school, with a lot of new technology, it just does not get any better than that!. So Obviously I am going to test sound quality as stated above (because I am addicted to top quality audio), but for this one, I'll have to really pay attention to the different aspect as it says that it has Quad sound drivers and the sound quality is better than CD quality. It even says it has BassUp Tech, which, I am always skeptical if that's just something companies say, or does it really kick out the lows. The cherry on top of the Model Zero, which I probably won't put through a vigorous of, is its waterproofness. (I do not want to ruin a $200 speaker). I will do what I do with my BT speakers, take it with me when I go somewhere that I want to use it because if I do not use it in the same way I use my other speakers then there is no real way to compare it. What I usually do with speaker tests is to use them on all 3 floors of my house, since they are all different in their own way, one is smaller with hardwood (doesn't soak up sound) one is large also with Hardwood floors, and the 3rd is smaller and carpeted, but that is where the 64" TV is...definitely connecting it to that! Then, since this particular speaker is meant to be extra portable and waterproof, I would take outside on my deck and see how loud and how good the sound quality is when there are NOT walls for it to bounce off of. Also, even though it is BT, I would have to use all the connections i.e Aux port and any other that it may have. The last part of it I would have to test is the advertised 10-hour playback time, not standby, but when it is actually playing music or whatever type of audio. I am also super excited to check out the app that runs it, in which you can change the EQ and other aspects as well as being able to connect more than one device to it at a time, I'll have to see what benefit that gives and how well it works/necessary it is. I have had high hopes for this speaker since I saw it was going to be released, if I do get picked you can be certain that it will not leave my side for months! Thanks for the opportunity #Anker #soundcore, I hope there are more product tests to come, it's like my favorite thing to do, even if I don't get to keep the product. US citizen. Cheers, Good luck everyone!
