Boat Stone 650 Bluetooth Speaker Review, Specifications

Boat Lifestyle has built a name for itself as a manufacturer of affordable audio products and accessories for smartphones, including wireless speakers, headphones, earphones, cables, and chargers. The focus of its product range is on affordability, and it has helped make Boat a popular brand online where shoppers look for deals. The latest product from Boat is the Stone 650, which is priced at Rs. 1,899 on Amazon. The speaker is a part of the Boat Stone range, and will likely succeed the Boat Stone 600

Design and Build Quality

boAt Stone 650 has a cuboid shape with diamond-shaped protrusions on the speaker grill and rubber coverings on both ends. The diamond-studded mesh design is not out of the box but looks subtly attractive and minimal giving a premium feel to the product. The ends of the speaker have detachable silicone covering which makes it resistant to damage in case of accidental drops. This is a good feature since Bluetooth speakers are usually handled roughly and are prone to drops during parties and outings. boAt Stone 650 weighs at a fairly heavy 655g measuring at 191x70x70mm. The heavy size can be attributed mainly to the dual drivers and a large battery.

Sound Performance

boAt Stone 650 comes with a dual-driver stereo setup with 2 drivers of 5W power on either side of the speakers. There’s an additional passive bass radiator on the backside of the speakers which acts as a subwoofer and amplifies the bass for a thumping and immersive experience. People looking for a good Bluetooth speaker in this range usually get disappointed by the lack of powerful bass but boAt Stone 650 definitely performs admirably in this respect.

Bluetooth and Connectivity

boAt Stone 650 comes packed with Bluetooth v4.2 for quick connectivity. It got connected to our smartphone in 5 seconds from when we turned the speaker. The Bluetooth range offered by boAt Stone 650 is 10m but we found that the Bluetooth stops working after around 12m which is still pretty average. We could have liked if it came with Bluetooth 5.0 for faster connectivity and longer-range but it’s the best we have at this price point.

Battery Life

boAt Stone 650 packs a huge 1800mAh battery and we were slightly surprised by the relatively low battery backup of 7 hours when playing songs at 70% volume. This can be attributed to the fact that boAt Stone 650 has powerful 10W drivers that use a lot of battery. It lasts around 5 hours when continuously playing songs at full volume.
