Oraimo Bass Go Boom Wants to Give You Premium Party Sound on a Budget

The quest for the perfect party speaker often leads down a path paved with hefty price tags and booming brand names. But what if you crave vibrant sound and pulsating beats without blowing your budget? Enter the Oraimo Bass Go Boom, a speaker promising premium party vibes at a budget-friendly price point.

For clarity, this speaker is not exactly new in the market. I saw early reports as far back as July 2023 but it sold out all over, only to be restocked in 2024, presumably due to the demand.

But can it truly compete with established giants like JBL Charge which cost an arm and a leg, or even others in the cutthroat budget party speaker arena? Let’s see if the Bass Go Boom lives up to the hype.

With a speaker output of 30W and a battery capacity of 3600mAh, it delivers impressive sound quality and up to 6 hours of playtime with lights on or 7 hours with lights off. Its compact size and IPX5 water resistance make it perfect for outdoor adventures or impromptu dance parties.

While many users praise the Oraimo Bass Go Boom for its powerful bass, portability, and dynamic light effects, others have raised concerns about its performance at high volumes and battery life. Some users have reported distortion at high volumes and shorter battery life than advertised.

However, despite these drawbacks, the Oraimo Bass Go Boom remains a popular choice for those seeking an affordable portable speaker with impressive bass and water resistance.

But specs paint an incomplete picture. How does it compare to the established players in the party speaker scene?

Pricing and Availability

The Oraimo Bass Go Boom is now available across a wide range of outlets, online and offline. In Kenya, you can get it from Oraimo’s Official Online Store and it will set you back a reasonable KES 7,700.

This is probably the speaker’s biggest selling point as competition like the JBL Charge 4 will easily run you double that.

The Verdict

The Oraimo Bass Go Boom is popular for a good reason. It really does hold its own against the competition in some key areas, particularly battery life and playback time, all while undercutting them in price by a massive margin.

Its power output is comparable to the JBL Flip 6, and it even boasts a few extras like an LED light show and TWS connectivity for pairing two speakers for stereo sound.

The Oraimo Bass Go Boom balances portability and audio performance, making it a popular choice for music enthusiasts. And while it claims IPX5 water resistance, it’s not fully submersible like some of the others.

Ultimately, the decision of whether the Oraimo Bass Go Boom is right for you comes down to your pocket and priorities. If you’re looking for a powerful, feature-packed speaker with long battery life and you’re on a tight budget, it’s a solid option
