After discussing with Anker, they tell me that the speaker was defective.
So i returned it and bought a new one, and…:
I immediately did a simple test:
- I turned on the speaker (not connected in USB)
- plugged in my smartphone via the auxiliary jack (other smartphone and other audio jack cord as those used with the first speaker)
- set the volume of the speaker to its maximum
- set the volume of my smartphone a weak level
Unfortunately, I have exactly the same problem: the sound is bad and very noisy.
I just noticed that my link in my first message was not good. This is a corrected link where you can hear the problem, for instance with the file uphoria 3-12 anker max.
To have correct rendering I have to diminish the volume of the speaker to about Max-5 and increase the volume of my smartphone a little.
What do you think ? Will I still have a defective model or is this behavior identical on all the products of this model?
If SoundCore 2 owner’s could quicky test their speaker…
If it is a normal behavior due to the manufacture of the product, are there orhers models that does not present “this defect”? I am looking for a speaker for my laptop to use mainly auxiliary, powered in USB, stereo and with a sound at least as good as the soundcore 2 (when the fault is not present;)).
