The popularity of speakers that are portable, compact and stylish is increasing. Recently, Envent Worldwide, a homegrown consumer electronics accessory brand, launches a new range of Bluetooth speakers under their LiveFree sub-brand. The two speakers, LiveFree 570 and LiveFree 530, pack a decent set of features that includes long-lasting battery power, light weight, voice-calling, water-and dust resistance and a stylish, strong and compact body. For Bluetooth speakers, there are plenty of choices available in the market today. With so many different shapes, sizes and companies to choose from, a good way to wade through it all is simply to use and share the experience. This is what we are doing; recently we reviewed both these speakers.
Envent’s LiveFree 570 is a 12W high bass Bluetooth speaker with latest Bluetooth 4.0 version. It comes with 4000 mAh lithium polymer battery which not only gives it a great battery life of upto 5-6 hours play time but also makes it extremely light weight. The speaker is IPX4 water resistant which can even withstand the water splashes.
With built in microphone and call answering button, LiveFree 570 can even let you have a small conference in a room or on the move like in the car itself. Just in case your device doesn’t support Bluetooth, LiveFree 570 offers a 3.5 mm jack through which you can connect. The two large 40mm speakers in this system deliver a combined RMS of 12W, ensuring clear sound. Also, the two-way transmission of sound waves inside the system’s structure by the dual-speakers ensures a higher volume, widening the sound range for a more powerful bass, be it mid or full range.
The speaker is constructed from ABS material that provides it with resistance against abrasion and corrosion. On the other hand, the LiveFree 530 is a 10W mobile Bluetooth speaker that is IPX5 water resistant and supports voice-calling with built-in microphone and hands-free function. This speaker is designed to combat dusty conditions.
The other good feature is even if you accidentally drop it, you can be rest assured that the speaker will be fine because of its high-grade ABS and silicone materials that have high-impact strength, making the speaker shockproof.
Someone has rightly said that the sound quality of a speaker is the outcome of how beautifully key elements such as materials, design, and execution are put together. LiveFree 570 and LiveFree 530 have something interesting to offer in each of these—they are made of good material, have premium design and sound quality is something that we liked.
