  • CONS
  • Value for money proposition could've been better

Verdict

If style and elegance is what you're looking for the Luxa2 Groovy will not disappoint you. At this price point you can certainly get better performing speakers like the JBL Flip II (with NFC) or the HMDX Jam Party, but they’re definitely not as chic and easy on the eyes as the Groovy.

LUXA2 Groovy Portable Bluetooth Speaker detailed review

With so many manufacturers entering this market we’ve been getting almost one portable Bluetooth speaker every week for the past six months. In case you didn’t know Luxa2 is a division of Thermaltake, a Taiwanese company that’s well known for catering to the DIY PC and gaming enthusiasts, and is their attempt to fork into the burgeoning “luxury accessories” segment. As far as that ambition goes the Groovy portable Bluetooth speaker fits the bill perfectly. It’s downright gorgeous with its brushed aluminium body, leather strap and minimalist design.


The Luxa2 Groovy portable speaker looks really nice as it is. To add to the charm it comes with a genuine leather strap. The strap can be replaced to “suit your mood” and a complimentary black strap is provided in the bundle.


The box and speaker

The all-aluminium body is not only sturdy, it’s also quite eye-catching. The front grille is made of a muted grey fibre with the Luxa2 logo displayed vertically, off-centre. The base has four rubber feet that do keep it firmly anchored most of the time. You will see the speaker “walking” in cases of extreme reverb though. 

How does it perform?

For one thing it’s quite loud for its size. The tuning of the two transducers is slanted towards highs so what you get are shrill peaks and a decidedly bright sound signature. Mids are subdued and bass, while present is not all that great. The sound starts distorting as you near the 100% volume mark. At this price point you can certainly get a better performing speaker like the JBL Flip II (with NFC) or the HMDX Jam Party, but they’re definitely not as chic and groovy as the Groovy.


The matte grey grille looks quite nice
