Tronsmart T6 Plus Upgraded Edition Soundpulse Bluetooth Speaker Review

When it comes to portable Bluetooth speakers, buying lesser known or off-branded products from China can be a bit of a gamble. Sometimes they’re surprisingly great, but sometimes these things just don’t quite work out the way we hoped they would. The Tronsmart T6 Plus Upgraded Edition just happens to be one of these types of situations, it looks okay on the surface but struggles to compare. Here’s our T6 Plus Upgraded Edition Soundpulse Bluetooth Speaker review:

T6 Plus Upgraded Edition Soundpulse Bluetooth Speaker
Manufacturer: Tronsmart
MSRP: $59.98 USD

Out of the box, the Tronsmart T6 Plus looks pretty nice. This portable speaker has a smooth rubbery surface with the nice tight speaker grill covers, and it feels pretty sturdy in the hand. However, because this speaker fires the bass from the bottom and out through small holes on the back, I couldn’t get a clear sound no matter how I positioned this speaker. I tried placing it upright in a corner moved slightly away from the walls so the stereo sound could bounce down and back up off the walls to be projected, but the audio quality never sounded “normal” to me.

The T6 Plus Upgraded Edition Soundpulse Bluetooth Speaker has a couple of different EQ modes and while some songs sounded better (green light for deep bass, white light for things with more mids and highs) with different modes, nothing ever seemed to rectify the decision of the design team. By laying the Bluetooth speaker on its side, buttons face down so the speaker could thump unhindered while playing sound straight up into the air, the sound quality was less muffled. But with that, it also took away a considerable amount of power from the bass.

When playing music, Church by Samm Henshaw has a nice healthy punch when it’s standing up right, but sounds considerably weaker laying down. Valentino by 24kGoldn has absolutely no bite and feels like it’s straining the speaker just to properly play unless you punch the bass mode on.

While I appreciate the long battery life, the AUX audio cable option, the SD card option, and the USB C charging cable and port, there’s better sounding Bluetooth speakers out there that have these options. For $60, you could beat this thing around in the gym or something but unless you’re really in need of a speaker that has the ability to play music off an AUX cable or SD card, I can’t really recommend this speaker over even Tronsmart’s other portable speakers.

Ultimately, it may be preferable to get two speakers like the Tronsmart Splash 1 and pair them together for better sound quality that’s incredibly loud.

The Verdict: 4.5

The Good

  • Feels well constructed
  • AUX port, Micro-SD slot, and a USB charging port giving you options while on the go
  • A few EQ modes to adjust between highs/mids and bass focus

The Bad

  • The design makes the speaker sound muffled and underpowered
  • No customization in the EQ modes
  • Who the hell is actually still using an AUX cable in 2022?
  • I can't tell you the last time I just had mp3s on a TF card, so this feature also feels antiquated and super outdated
