Today I will be blogging about the soundcore flare. Specifically about it being paired together with a second flare.
So first I’ll talk about pairing them together. I paired the first one just as usual, than I opened the app and chose the option to add a speaker. I turned on my second speaker. Nothing. It told me no speaker could be found. I immediately realized my second flare wasn’t in pairing mode. I turned on pairing mode and tried again. It took about 20 seconds for them to pair but it was fairly easy.
So, there are two modes to put the paired speakers in, “stereo” or “boost”. I put them in stereo mode first and tried them out.
I turned on one song, but I don’t think it was recorded with stereo so it didn’t do much. I turned on another song that I know was recorded with stereo to listen. Still didn’t sound so great. It sounded like music was coming from each speaker separately. Normally when you listen to stereo the music feels like it’s going through your head, this didn’t sound like that. I would almost go as far as to say the stereo mode is (gulp) bad…
I was almost (almost, but not quite) horrified. I had two speakers that I intended to pair together, that sounded bad paired together!
I decided to try the boost mode. I turned on the imperial march from start wars (darth Vader’s theme). Woah! It sounded amazing! I put the speakers equal distances from me, one on my right, the other on my left. The music sounded like it was all around me! It was an amazing sound!
The boost mode honestly sounds more like “stereo” than the stereo mode. Neither are true stereo because the music doesn’t sound like it moves through your head (like wearing headphones) like stereo should. But the boost mode is amazing none the less.
Conclusion: I would recommend you buy a second flare if you don’t already own one. Just don’t expect true stereo sound, especially from the stereo mode. Boost is definitely the way to go for the flares. Stereo mode is just a flop.
Thanks for reading this! Let me know what you think, and how I can improve my reviews!
Edit: I should probably add this isn’t actually my speaker (the second one). I bought it to use and try out but I actually got it for a friend. So for the long run I only have one
