I own the Soundcore Motion Boom (purchased due to mainly good reviews) which I was and still am very happy with for its good sound, good bass and easy portability. I would compare it to the size of a lion cub, but with a roar on a similar level to its mother! Its little size belies its output. BUT, when I saw the Motion Boom Plus being advertised, which I now call ‘the daddy’, it is bigger and heavier, bigger speakers, and has tweeters and an aux socket, of which neither are on the Motion Boom and with it being considerably more powerful than the Boom, then this was a no brainer for me! I received an email from Anker to buy an early bird coupon for £1 to get a discount code for a whopping £62 off. How could I refuse such an offer? Had to get it, and am very pleased that I did. As a music lover of various devices, and owner of a few ‘old school’ boomboxes that this Motion Boom Plus resembles, I have a massive personal music collection spanning back from the ’80s, and I listen to a lot of YouTube music these days ( didn’t take me long to build up a massive YT playlist) discovering so much music that I have never heard before.
There is also the added option of the aux socket to plug in my iPod, portable cd/mp3 player or portable minidisc player, yes, minidisc player, and this powerhouse unit does not disappoint. The sound quality is as good as anything I’ve heard from a Bluetooth boombox. I prefer clarity with all music, and the bass does not cloud or drown out the overall sound. Bluetooth boomboxes have come a very long way and are improving all the time with the sound quality and increased power output. Connection is quick and the Soundcore App (Play Store) lets you tweak the sound to your taste, and you will need to do that to get the best sound out of it. It does make a noticeable difference compared to the standard ‘out-of-the-box settings which sounded terrible.
Battery life seems good so far, though not quite as long-lasting as the motion boom, that is not an issue. I have found that the bass can sound a lot weaker depending on where you place it, be it high up, medium level or low down, so it’s best to move it around to find an area that hits the bass ‘sweet spot’. Then you can get the party started! I just wish the subs at the side had some sort of protection grills, not that I would put it anywhere where there is a chance it could get damaged. I do have to look after my new ‘daddy’ with extreme care!
Overall, the Anker Soundcore Motion Boom Plus is a highly recommended product by another happy customer.
