The speakers are good for indoor listening, parties or outdoor adventures.

Design

The appearance design of the Oraimo SoundPro 2C is basic and plain but not unattractive. Users who pursue fashion might not really love it. The speaker is a very lightweight and portable Bluetooth speaker. It has a rubber coating surface, a sleek steel mesh, and clean lines ensuring the speaker’s beauty blends into the background, yet still draws attention for its minimalist refinement. 

At the front of the soundPro 2C is the Oraimo brand logo. The four-shaped high gloss buttons power on/off, volume -/+ and play/pause buttons are located on top of the speaker, which can easily be controlled. The USB port, TF card slot, 5V in charging port, AUX input and reset are located at the back of the speaker. In addition, the bottom of the speaker is designed to ensure the stability and non-slip of the speaker with a surface that grips.

Oraimo soundPro 2C Speaker Performance

Oraimo soundPro 2C Speaker audio quality is okay and it is good enough for a small room. Although, the company boasts of 10W maximum sound output that is delivered with the presence of a dual 5W driver. The performance is quite satisfactory, it delivers decent sound whatever your preferred genre of music. The bass performance is a little bit disappointing, but it sounds okay for this price tag.

The Bluetooth version is 5.0 and it comes with a built-in microphone for hands-free calling. It makes it easier for anyone hoping to make calls with the speaker, or talk with Siri or Google Assistant. The speaker also has a fantastic range, so your paired devices remain connected to the soundPro 2C speaker, even from far away.

Connectivity and Battery Life

In terms of battery life, oraimo soundPro is equipped with a 1500mAh large-capacity battery that can play music for up to 6 hours continuously on a single charge. In actual use, the music playtime lasts for 4 to 6 hours a day, and it only needs to be charged twice a week. With the speaker’s long-lasting battery life, you can confidently carry your speaker around with you without the fear of losing power. However, battery performance varies depending on your volume and usage level.

The charging interface adopts the micro-USB interface for charging. The oraimo soundPo 2C speaker doesn’t support wireless or fast charging and the battery level takes about 3 hours 30 minutes to get from 0 to 100%. Although, you can still listen to your favorite songs while it’s charging.

Limitations

The biggest drawback here is the absence of dust and water resistance. This means you won’t be able to use the Oraimo SoundPro 2C 10W in the rain, pool side or beach. While other recently released speakers have recorded success in the water resistance department, the oraimo soundPro 2C doesn’t come with water or splash resistance, unlike the Oraimo SoundPro. The speaker is also available in only one colour to suit your style and doesn’t have a handle, so you can easily carry along with you when you’re on the go.
