Tagg recently introduced two new Bluetooth speakers in the budget segment with Sonic Angle Mini and Sonic Angle Max. Although Sonic Angle Max is equipped with much more powerful hardware, it is Angle Mini that will attract a lot of buyers with its compact design and affordable price tag.
The Bluetooth speaker comes with a price tag of Rs 1,299 and it is available for purchase from the company’s website and Amazon. The speaker has a lot to offer, but is it worth spending you Rs 1,299 on this speaker? Let’s find out.
Compact Design, Rugged feel!
Let’s be honest, most of the speakers in this price range do not offer a durable design. However, with Tagg Sonic Angle Mini, you get a rugged look and feel. It comes with a rather odd triangle-style design language, which is not so common in this price range. However, the build quality does not look cheap at any angle.
Talking about the port placement, the right side of the device features all the controls. You get power on/off button, Bluetooth pairing button and volume controls. The back panel comes with a rubberised casing that hides the Aux cable and micro USB port. The speaker is IPX7 rated, meaning that it can be submerged up to 1 meter for 30 minutes. That said, Tagg Sonic Mini Angle is a different-looking speaker, which feels rugged and lightweight when you hold in your hand.
Sound quality is fine, connectivity is not an issue!
Coming to the major highlight of the speaker, sound. The company has added a 6W speaker along with a 42×57 mm bass radiator for clear HD sound with heavy bass. The sound quality is good for this range as the speakers are loud enough to fill a standard room and the bass is really strong. This can be gauged from the fact that when you put it on a flat table or something and keep the volumes at the highest, the speakers start moving with the type of vibration it produces.
However, strong bass does not mean it gives an all-round performance. We listened to some acoustic or unplugged songs on this speaker and the results were not that great. The speaker shimmers on high and mids in our opinion. This means that although you get good bass, the voice is not that clear as you would expect.
Coming to the connectivity options, you can either pair it via Bluetooth or use AUX cable to play your favourite songs. During our review period, we did not face any problem with the connectivity and the range is quite decent as well. One can also control the volume of the speaker through the smartphone’s volume controls as well.
The Tagg Sonic Angle Mini comes with a 2200mAh battery. In our testing, we got almost 8 hours of playback, which is a good thing. The speaker took almost 2 hours to get fully charged.
