Gone are the days when you needed expensive equipment and software to sing karaoke. Now, for such entertainment, a regular computer, laptop or even a smartphone is enough. Yes, even without a screen with running lyrics, you can do without if you buy a special microphone for karaoke of the “all in one” type. Expertology brings you an overview of the current audio equipment market in early 2020 with recommendations from our industry experts on choosing the best microphone model for karaoke singing.

How to choose a microphone for karaoke

To begin with, we will traditionally deal with the criteria for choosing a suitable microphone and how not to get lost in the variety that the market offers. Moreover, the diversity is only an appearance, and there really are not so many really suitable models for such a special topic.

Who will sing and how

This is the first question you should ask yourself before buying a karaoke microphone, but for some reason it is often overlooked. Let’s clarify what is meant.

If simple entertainment is expected and singing in turn at the peak of the feast with an obligatory prompter, one microphone will do, moreover, inexpensive and even wired. The requirements here are low by definition, studio quality is certainly not needed, and only those who know the words of the song well can go far from the screen with a prompter.

A more complicated version of the previous one is a kit for a married couple who prefers to sing in a duet. Wired and wireless options are available here in almost all price categories. For children, there may be a separate version of the microphone with a “fun” design and colorful colors.

Sound transmission mechanism

According to this parameter, microphones are divided into several groups, the most popular of which are dynamic or condenser. The latter are more appropriate for studio recording, as they show high, and often completely prohibitive sensitivity. Such sensitivity is needed to convey all the nuances of the sound of an instrument or vocal, but for karaoke it is useless, if not harmful. Ultra-accurate voice transmission will emphasize both its strengths and weaknesses, and we all know what karaoke singing is like in most cases. In addition, condenser mechanisms are demanding on room acoustics and additional equipment.

Dynamic microphones, on the contrary, are able to smooth out the faulty vocal “parts” of the entertaining company to some extent. And the lion’s share of ready-made karaoke systems is equipped with just such models. The limited frequency range here no longer plays a fundamental role.

Orientation

Everything is more or less clear here – omnidirectional microphones are not suitable for vocals, since they will capture and transmit to the speakers not only the singing voice, but also all the surrounding sounds. That is, only unidirectional models are suitable for karaoke. This is one of the fundamental characteristics that manufacturers always directly indicate in the descriptions.

Wired, wireless or standalone

If you are buying a new microphone for an existing karaoke system (let’s say the old one is out of order), then the choice here is not difficult. You just need to choose an option with the same type of connection and take into account the nuances described above. If you are going to use the karaoke application on a computer or smartphone, there may already be different options.

With wired microphones, everything is clear – there are plenty of them in all price categories, from “hundred-ruble” to professional for tens and more than thousands of rubles. In the review, we will cut off the extremes and consider good-quality models at an affordable or at least not exorbitant price. It’s still about karaoke, not a recording studio.

There are not so many wireless microphones of normal quality and with an acceptable price on the market, but there are still plenty to choose from. Some models communicate with the receiving device via Bluetooth, and some use a radio module. We will consider high-quality and affordable samples of both

Finally, the most interesting thing is stand-alone microphones, “sharpened” strictly for karaoke. These are combined devices, where a microphone, speakers, a player, a control panel, an optional mixer and even light-color-music are assembled in one case. Such devices are equipped with a battery and a card reader, allowing you to arrange fun entertainment in any, even camping conditions. Actually, it is these models that most closely fit the modern interpretation of the term “karaoke microphones”. This is a relatively new product on the market and consumers are just beginning to discover the benefits of such a solution.

The best wired microphones for karaoke

And the first selection of the best karaoke microphones according to Expertology magazine is dedicated to wired microphones. Regardless of the models presented, we will give general advice. Fixed karaoke systems often “prefer” microphones with very exotic connector types over standard 3.5mm mini-jacks or larger 6.3mm plugs, and this should be taken into account if you plan to choose a microphone for an existing device. With universal audio systems, things are easier.

Thomson M135D

Rating: 4.9

Thomson M135D

Let’s start with the most inexpensive Thomson microphone in the selection, and to be precise, this is a whole pair of microphones at an affordable price, if we are talking about the modification with the D index. Hereinafter, in the selection of wired models, we present microphones for vocals that are absolutely not necessarily tied to the theme of karaoke. They perform well for events, and even for amateur recording in a home studio.

The Thomson M135D is a handcrafted dynamic microphone. It is positioned differently on different trading platforms: for vocals, computer and, in fact, for karaoke. These divisions in this case are conditional, since the microphone is universal. This is especially pronounced in the type of connection: the plug at the end of the wire is a standard 3.5mm minijack, and there are also compact adapters for 6.3mm format, one for each microphone.

Outwardly, this model does not stand out in any way, its form is the most classical. The body material is black plastic with a glossy finish. Wire length – 3 meters, attached to the body without the possibility of detachment. This is regarded by users as both a plus and a minus. Minus – not very convenient for transportation, plus – a guarantee that the wire will not jump out of the socket at the most inopportune moment. There is a convenient on/off switch on the case. The microphone weighs 225g, with packaging – 527g.

The model is characterized by a perceived frequency range from 70 to 13 thousand Hz, a sensitivity of -76 dB, and a cardioid polar pattern. The impedance of this model is quite high – 600 Ohm, so it will be able to reveal its full potential on not the weakest acoustics.

In general, this model can be recommended as a permanent model for not too ambitious tasks – it will last a long time and without unpleasant surprises. Or this microphone can be considered as a basic option for those who plan to develop further. He is far from professional models, but he differs strikingly from cheap “hundred-ruble” models.

Advantages

  • sound transmission of sound;

  • stability and reliability;

  • universal type of connection;

  • optimal for a home duet;

  • the most affordable price in the selection for a pair of microphones.

Flaws

  • the wire is not unfastened;

  • Marked glossy surface.

Pioneer DM-DV10

Rating: 4.8

Pioneer DM-DV10

The review continues with the microphone of the famous Pioneer brand, and the DM-DV10 model will cost much more than the previous position, and it will be one microphone, not a pair. The price is quite appropriate, since this is still a Pioneer with all the obvious pluses. And we will now describe the non-obvious ones.

Although at first glance the microphone looks very similar to the previous one, if you take a closer look, and also take it in your hand, the difference is felt significant. The design of this model is exactly the same classic, but the materials are clearly of higher quality. The body is black, but the surface of the pen is matte, which means it won’t show annoying fingerprints, plus more tactile comfort. The case, by the way, is metal, not plastic.

The wire here is exactly the same non-removable 3 meters long. The same 3.5mm minijack plug, but with gold. The kit comes with an adapter for 6.3mm, also gold-plated. There is an on/off switch on the case.

The Pioneer DM-DV10 is a dynamic type microphone with a cardioid pickup pattern. Its perceived frequency range is slightly wider than the previous one – from 70 to 14 thousand Hz. And a little less resistance – 500 ohms. It is even noticeably lighter than the Thomson M135 – almost exactly 200g without packaging.

The official manufacturer’s warranty for this model is 12 months.

Advantages

  • brand;

  • quality materials and assembly;

  • metal case;

  • decent sound;

  • gold-plated contacts;

  • universal type of connection;

  • reliability and durability.

Flaws

  • no obvious flaws were found.

AKG D5/D5S

Rating: 4.7

AKG D5/D5S

Another vocal microphone great for karaoke is the AKG D5/D5S. And here we see an even higher level of the device. With this model, you can successfully start your first attempts at singing under karaoke and just as successfully continue, performing something more seriously already under an amateur recording.

The microphone is more massive than both previous models – it weighs 320g. The case is made of high-quality plastic, also of a classic style, black, but in a slightly different shape. Height – 185mm, depth – 51mm.

For connection, an XLR connector is already used here and at the same time support for a balanced connection is implied, which is a big plus for this model. Key technical characteristics: highly directional diagram; frequency range from 70 to 20 thousand Hertz; sensitivity – 2.6MV/pa; resistance – 600 Ohm.

A rather tangible price in this case is more than justified, since the AKG D5 / D5S series demonstrates impressive additional characteristics in addition to the main ones.

So, here we see an innovative diaphragm developed using AKG’s patented Laminated Varimotion technology. It noticeably increases the useful signal before the occurrence of “windup” (parasitic feedback), thereby preventing the same well-known heartbreaking whistle when the microphone loops into the audio system.

Even less obvious, but important improvements are a double anti-vibration mount, which reduces mechanical noise to the minimum possible level, as well as the material of the head itself – a special elastic steel mesh that can even reduce pop noise to some extent (for studio recording without a full-fledged a pop filter is still indispensable).

The lower frequency limit looks cut down, as it coincides with previous budget models. But in fact, for karaoke and amateur recording, this is even a plus, as it cuts off unnecessary noise, wheezing and hum.

The AKG D5/D5S comes with a microphone stand holder and a carrying case. There are no wires in the kit, and this is the only subject of complaints from buyers.

Advantages

  • sound quality;

  • increased strength;

  • balanced XLR connection;

  • innovative diaphragm;

  • flat frequency response;

  • equipment.

Flaws

  • no wire included.

Sennheiser E 835-S

Rating: 4.6

Sennheiser E 835-S

Rounding out Expertology magazine’s selection of the best wired karaoke microphones is another quality model for vocals from the prominent Sennheiser brand. Produced directly in Germany, thus indirectly confirming the high quality.

Exactly the same can be said about the design as about any of the above models. Materials and assembly are top notch, metal case, classic design, even more classic black color. Microphone dimensions – 180x48x48mm, weight – 330g. An XLR connector is used for connection, a balanced connection is supported.

Key specifications: dynamic type; cardioid chart; the range of perceived frequencies extended towards the bottom – from 40 to 16 thousand Hertz; the lowest resistance in the selection is 350 ohms. Due to the reduced impedance, the microphone will adequately transmit sound even when connected to not the most powerful acoustics.

Expertology experts highly appreciate this model as suitable not only for karaoke, but also for quite serious, albeit semi-professional sound recording. Experts note the high-quality balanced sound, reliable protection against extraneous noise (even the on / off button is silent on the magnet), the ability to cut through the most “hard” soundtrack in terms of arrangement.

The equipment here is similar to the previous model – a microphone without a wire, a holder for a stand, a carrying case, and documentation. The absence of a wire, as in the previous case, turns out to be an unpleasant surprise for some buyers. Another minor but unpleasant drawback is that the bolt for fixing the power button in a single position is made of very flimsy plastic. Therefore, it must be screwed extremely carefully and carefully, using a non-metallic object if possible.

Advantages

  • brand;

  • sound transmission quality;

  • extended range of perceived frequencies;

  • protection from extraneous noise;

  • relatively low impedance;

  • balanced connection is supported;

  • complete set (except cable).

Flaws

  • no cable included;

  • plastic bolt fixing the power button.

The best wireless microphones for karaoke

The second selection in the ranking of the best microphones for karaoke presents three interesting and decent quality wireless models. The presence of a wireless connection in this class of devices does not exclude the possibility of equipping with a wired interface, or even the wire itself in the kit. Wireless connectivity precludes any serious studio recording by definition, but it immeasurably increases mobility for live performances or events, thus going far beyond just singing karaoke.

Ritmix RWM-101

Rating: 4.9

Ritmix RWM-101

And the first in the selection is traditionally the most inexpensive option of those that are already really capable of something. This is a Ritmix trademark microphone with a combined connection type.

Let’s start with the connection. This is the main advantage of this model, since the Ritmix RWM-101 can connect to acoustics or a receiving device via a radio channel with a distance of up to 30 meters, which is 3 times more than, say, Bluetooth. But even if it is not possible to use standard radio receivers, the microphone can always be connected via a cable with an XLR plug. Plus regular cable – it is removable and its length is 5 meters; minus – it is rather flimsy, and relatively quickly loses its qualities up to the loss of contact. So, the cable will have to be changed sooner or later with frequent use.

Microphone dimensions – 190x81x53mm, weight – 285g. The case is made of metal with a fairly high-quality exterior finish. An unexpectedly good, albeit laconic, design – a classic design of a round head in a silver mesh metal shell, but with a smooth “flow” into a silver body. This model is powered by standard AA batteries.

Consider the key technical characteristics of the model. This is a dynamic unidirectional microphone with a cardioid pattern. Sensitivity – 72dB. The range of perceived frequencies is rather narrow – from 100 to 10 thousand Hz. This is the main disadvantage of the model, but given the price and initial unpretentiousness, most users are satisfied. The resistance is quite high – 600 ohms.

Now about some other technical points. Although the cable is connected via a dedicated XLR connector, it will be a simple connection as the microphone itself is not balanced. The radio transmitter broadcasts a signal at frequencies from 87.5 to 92 MHz.

Summing up, we can say that this model is perfect for not too demanding vocals and karaoke at home and at events. The narrow range of perceived frequencies excludes the possibility of talking about any normal recording even in a home studio. But the microphone is not designed for this, and the price fully justifies this moment against the background of other good characteristics.

Advantages

  • sufficiently high-quality sound within a rather narrow range;

  • wired and wireless connection;

  • detachable cable included;

  • metal case;

  • cute design.

Flaws

  • narrow frequency range;

  • short lived cable.

DEFENDER MIC-155

Rating: 4.8

DEFENDER MIC-155

The second number in the selection of the best wireless microphones for karaoke is the DEFENDER MIC-155 kit. This is another budget option for a duo, similar to the Thomson M135D above, but this time wireless.

Let’s talk about the important difference between this model. Here we are dealing with an omnidirectional microphone. This imposes some restrictions on the method of application, but at the same time opens up some possibilities. So, this model will perform much better at events where background sounds, voices from the audience and other “artifacts” will be appropriate and desirable. The same if it is assumed that during the performance of karaoke the company will sing along.

Now for the key features. This is a dynamic microphone. The frequency range is not impressive, but it is expected from 10 to 13000 Hertz. Sensitivity – 72dB. Radio transmission with a radius of up to 30 meters. Connection via a standard 3.5mm universal mini-jack, the kit also includes a 6.3mm adapter. Powered by a 6F22 battery (popular name – “Krona”), included in the delivery.

As a summary, a small caveat. Do not expect from this set of superpowers. It is designed for karaoke and not too important performances, and the price is appropriate. Inappropriate use generates not too fair negative reviews.

Advantages

  • sufficient sound quality;

  • omnidirectional (for those who need it);

  • universal connection;

  • two batteries included.

Flaws

  • narrow frequency range;

  • omnidirectional (for those who do not need it).

Shure SH-200

Rating: 4.8

Shure SH-200

The third and final wireless model in our review is an example of solid products from the American company Shure Incorporated. Produced in China. According to its characteristics, this is the most interesting option in the selection of wireless models. There are some doubts about the original provenance of the commercially available kits, but the Shure SH-200 is in high demand anyway and garners mostly positive reviews.

Let’s start with appearance. It is the most classic of the classics at the microphone – an oblong cylindrical handle, a head in a mesh shell. The material of the handle is nothing outstanding in terms of quality, but there is also no frank “Chinese” in a bad sense here either. Aesthetes will be a little puzzled by the strange proportions of the microphone with a length of 222mm and a width of 51mm, but this will have to be taken for granted. The device weighs 192g without battery.

Actually, Shure SH-200, like the previous model, is not just a microphone, but an entire radio system consisting of a microphone itself with a transmitter and a receiver. The radio modules operate in the VHF band. For its cost, the system is quite reliable, and, importantly, it is easy to learn and use. There are built-in noise suppression and signal dropout protection.

Shure SH-200 is the name of the kit. And in this context, it is worth emphasizing the microphone itself separately. And this is Shure SM58 – a well-known model equipped with a VHF receiver on one antenna and a transmitter. A feature of the microphone is the ability to emphasize the clarity of the sound of vocals and vocals. The microphone is unidirectional with a range from 40 to 15000 Hz, a sensitivity of 80 dB and a very “heavy” resistance of 1000 ohms.

The receiving module allows you to optimally adjust and match the output level with the connection parameters. On the body of the receiver there are LEDs for indicating power, overload, signal reception, battery discharge.

PS20 battery and mic adapter included. Battery life up to 10 hours. The reception radius is up to 50 meters.

Advantages

  • high-quality sound;

  • stable work;

  • suppression of extraneous noise;

  • ease of development and use of the radio system;

  • up to 10 hours of battery life;

  • reception radius – up to 50 meters.

Flaws

  • high resistance.

The best standalone microphones for karaoke

And now let’s move on to the most interesting part of the review of the best karaoke microphones according to Expertology, where we will consider an extended selection of all-in-one models. These microphones are actually compact audio systems, in various combinations combining the microphone itself (wireless), a compact speaker system, an audio player, and even optional light-color-accompaniment. All this is contained in one unit, which is easy to transport and use at any time in any conditions.

MAGIC KARAOKE YS-63

Rating: 4.9

MAGIC KARAOKE YS-63

Let’s start with the most inexpensive, but rather high-quality and bright solution. The MAGIC KARAOKE YS-63 series is represented by karaoke microphones in four design options – rose gold, gold, silver and black. Externally, the devices look very stylish, light modifications are also festive. Weighs a microphone with a battery 330g. The materials are dominated by aluminum and plastic.

Let’s first analyze the functionality of the microphone, since in the context of such devices it matters along with the sound. So, here we see a basic set of components – a microphone, player, speakers. The player and microphone control panel is located directly on the handle. You can switch tracks, control speaker volume and echo. At the end of the handle there are USB Type-A, MicroUSB interfaces and a card reader. There is a voice recording function.

Specifications in its pure form for this model are as follows. The range of perceived frequencies is from 10 to 10000 Hz. Sensitivity – 40dB. The standard speakers are a speaker and a subwoofer with a power of 3W each. The microphone is connected to the receiving device via a Bluetooth wireless channel or via a cable with a suitable connector. Range – standard for Bluetooth 4.0 10 meters.

The device is powered by a 2200mAh battery, the declared autonomy should be enough for 6 hours of operation (in reality, often less). In standby mode – up to 360 hours. Full charge time is 2 hours.

In this lineup there are modifications with exactly the same name of the series, but one and a half times more expensive. The difference between them is that more expensive modifications have one additional function – voice change. So, when it is activated, you can change the timbre of the voice at the output of the speakers from childish to rude masculine, and thereby pretty amuse the audience.

Advantages

  • quality materials and assembly;

  • several options for colorful design;

  • autonomy;

  • power supply including via USB;

  • speaker and subwoofer;

  • voice change in more expensive modifications.

Flaws

  • autonomy is lower than stated.

WSTER WS-858

Rating: 4.8

WSTER WS-858

From slightly “no-name”, but inexpensive previous model, let’s move on to more expensive, but distinctly branded options. The WS-858 series, although the simplest in the WSTER range, is significantly better than the previous one in terms of characteristics, and more than twice as expensive. In large cities where there are Tuxun or WSTER representatives, you can even thoughtfully test karaoke microphones before buying.

Conceptually, this model is almost exactly the same as the previous example. This is the same candy bar with a built-in player and speakers, echo control and voice change, wireless and wired communication, good autonomy. Differences are observed in the details, if you look more closely at the characteristics.

This series comes in three color options – black, gold and rose gold. The player and microphone control panel is no longer located on the handle-holder, but on the speaker block. Some people do not like this arrangement, since it cannot be controlled with one hand. But on the other hand, it prevents accidental clicks, which can be much more annoying. The body of the device is metal. The speakers themselves are much more powerful than the previous model – 5W each, and the block shape is rounded.

This model is connected in exactly the same way as the previous one – a Bluetooth channel (version 4.1 with a 10 m range) or a USB cable. There is a slot for memory cards, the maximum amount is 8GB. Management, in addition to the basic functions, still allows mixing with buttons and levers. A separate button removes the echo. A simple knob changes the volume level. There is also a standard 3.5mm headphone jack.

A special mention is the function of changing the voice. It can change the voice of the speaker at the output in the columns of the four built-in “cartoon” tone options. And the presence of such a function is a highly probable indication that you are not dealing with a fake. Also on the packaging itself should be written Voice Converter.

This model is powered by a built-in lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 1800mAh. The device is well optimized, so the charge may well be enough for 5-6 hours of work. The manufacturer indicates a range of 5-8 hours, but a maximum of 8 hours is purely theoretical, because no one will sing karaoke if the speakers sound quieter than his own voice. Full charge time – from 3 to 5 hours, depending on the power of the source.

Advantages

  • quality of materials and assembly;

  • metal case;

  • powerful speakers;

  • voice change;

  • spectacular appearance;

  • autonomy.

Flaws

  • comes across a factory marriage.

Micgeek Q9s+

Rating: 4.7

Micgeek Q9s+

The third number will consider an even more interesting model, which is a super combo – a wireless karaoke microphone with a player, speakers and even a mixing console. And all this in one building.

In appearance and basic functionality, this model is not much different from the previous one. This is the same solid case with several color options and exactly the same interfaces – wireless Bluetooth 4.1 with a radius of 10 meters, USB Type-A, a card reader and a 3.5mm minijack. In general, the external difference would be minimal if we were talking about the MicGeek Q9. But in Q9s+, the device received some improvements – more mixers, a silicone pad is included to protect the case in case of falls.

Since we are talking about the mixer, let’s move on to the functionality. Indeed, Q9s + contains a whole equalizer on the speaker block, made in just such a form factor – in the form of mechanical sliders and some additional buttons and levers. Of course, its capabilities are limited, but here no one claims studio quality, and adjusting the sound is both useful and simply interesting, especially for children.

And for children, the built-in voice changer will be most interesting. Adjustment is elementary – press the function enable button and move the Treble and Bass tone sliders. The voice will change in a cartoon style from a mouse squeak to a rough bass. Other buttons can be used to suppress noise, remove or add echo, and so on.

The device is powered by a built-in lithium-ion battery with a capacity sufficient for 6-7 hours of continuous operation. The maximum declared by the manufacturer is 9 hours, some reviewers talk about 12 hours, but with an eye to the actual battery capacity of 2600mAh, this is hard to believe, and Expertology tests confirm a more realistic 7 hours maximum. Charging time is up to 5 hours.

The package includes the microphone itself, a headphone cable, a USB cable for charging and connection, a very stylish case for storage and carrying. The warranty for this model is 12 months.

Advantages

  • decent quality;

  • bright design;

  • clear sound;

  • built-in mixing console;

  • smooth change in voice timbre;

  • noise suppression;

  • protective silicone cap

  • stylish case included.

Flaws

  • there are doubts about the durability of the paint.

OWL SDRD SD-306

Rating: 4.6

OWL SDRD SD-306

Since in the previous two selections of our review there were special sets of two microphones for a duet, Expertology specialists could not get around stand-alone karaoke microphones in this matter. One of the brightest and most popular kits is OWL SDRD SD-306.

These three letters – OWL – are by no means an abbreviation, but a word, translated from English – “owl”. The designers tried to depict the stereo system in the shape of an owl’s eyes, and they did it masterfully – literally with one curve, which turned the featureless speakers into a lively owl look.

But, “not a single design” – this model also has quite specific and fairly good technical characteristics. The system is connected to a computer or smartphone via Bluetooth version 4.2 with support for EDR, AVRCP, A2DP, HSP/HFP. On the body of the speaker unit there is a special socket-stand for a smartphone. The total power of the speakers is 20W, and they broadcast in the frequency range from 100Hz to 18000Hz. Each socket in which a microphone is installed in the speaker unit case is also a charging base. Microphone battery capacity – 1500mAh, speakers – 1800mAh. Resistance – 4 Ohm. There is an AUX output with a standard minijack connector.

A few words should be said separately about autonomy. Microphones on their batteries can work for quite a long time – they are not burdened with speaker power, so the indicated capacity is enough for 5-6 hours of operation. But even a slightly increased battery capacity for speakers is already enough for 3 hours, and most often less. And as soon as the speakers run out of charge, the microphones become useless, even with a full charge.

This set comes in three color options – black, gold and pink. The main body materials are durable ABS plastic and aluminum. Assembly dimensions – 290x135x145mm, weight – 1900g.

Advantages

  • quality materials and assembly;

  • clear sound;

  • equalizer with presets;

  • backlight;

  • colorful design.

Flaws

  • low column autonomy.

Tuxun Q08

Rating: 4.5

Tuxun Q08

The Tuxun Q08 rounds out our review of the best karaoke microphones according to Expertology. It wouldn’t be anything special if it weren’t for one feature that sets it apart from other karaoke microphones and gives the manufacturer the moral right to set the appropriate price.

Let’s reveal a secret right away – Tuxun Q08 is able to suppress vocals in a reproduced composition. You no longer need to suffer in search of the backing track of your favorite song in order to sing it under karaoke. Of course, you can make a backing track from any song on a computer, but it’s still a process, and it takes some time and the right software. Here, everything happens on the fly. Tuxun Q08 is the cheapest model in the series, and is only capable of suppressing the most distinct-sounding voice. More expensive models do this better.

Now for the rest of the features. The cubic block houses two speakers with a power of 5W each. Push-button control, the control panel is located on the cubic block of speakers. An AUX headphone output is provided. Communication with gadgets is carried out via Bluetooth-channel (version 4.1).

The Tuxun Q08 lineup includes four design modifications and colors – Black, Gold, Silver and Rose Gold.

The device is powered by a 2600 mAh battery. The maximum continuous operation time on a full charge is 9 hours according to the manufacturer, but in fact it is less, depending on the volume of the sound, the number of on and off and even the temperature of the environment – in the cold the battery runs out faster.

The official warranty for this model is 12 months.

Advantages

  • clear sound;

  • noise suppression;

  • quality of materials and assembly;

  • vocal suppression;

  • autonomy.

Flaws

  • qualitatively removes only the most distinct vocals.
