These cheap Bluetooth speakers also are very popular and are Amazon’s top 10 best sellers. Oontz has some products which are popular in Amazon best sellers for several months such as Angle 3, Angle Solo.

OontZ Angle 3 Ultra Review – Triangle Design and Control

OontZ Angle 3 Ultra review

The design is still not diff from previous models, which is still a triangle design (look like a long triangle pyramid). The most of material is plastic. The outer is unremovable aluminum to protect the grille Speaker driver insider. All edges of Angle 3 Utrla are rubber to prevent slipping. Angle 3 Ultra comes in 2 colors (black or white), but some times in Amazon available in one color.

Both full-range drivers are sitting on the side and protected with the aluminum grille. Due to OontZ design, the drivers placed on the front side, Therefore, the sound cannot be heard in all directions (not deliver 360-degree). But it comfy because you can place the speaker vertically or horizontally. Recommend that should place horizontally for better stereo separation.

Most portable Bluetooth speakers design control buttons located on the top, but the manufacturer of Angle 3 Ultra (Cambridge Soundworks) design to be different. They place the control panel on the right side of the speaker. On the control panel, there is the volume (+/-), play button, next and back button, and power on and off also with a Bluetooth pairing button with a light indicator that comes on blue when Bluetooth is on and red blinking to tell the power is low. All control buttons are protected with rubber which has a soft feel for their operation.

There’s no remote control, that is one of the bad things that I don’t like. It would be more convenient if they come with remote control.

All inputs located on the right side too, next to the control button. one AUX (3.5mm) input, next is a micro USB charging port. They are covered and protected with a rubber flap. Even though the OontZ Angle Ultra 3 is IPX7 waterproof, but they are not water-resistant in AUX mode and also when the rubberized flap not cover.

OontZ Angle 3 Utlra 3rd Gen – Bluetooth 5.0

OontZ Angler 3 Ulter 3rd Gen Review

Operation is very easy and the connections are well explained in the manual. Angle 3 Ultra 3rd Gen with the latest version, Bluetooth 5.0 which work range up to 100 feet without any obstacles. Fast and great connection. The connection performance is quite excellent and also stable within the work-range as Angle 3 Ultra 3rd Gen claimed.

However; if used in the building or indoor with partition walls, the range is shorter obviously, due to the walls or other obstacles. But even though, this cheap portable Bluetooth speaker also offers more than 30 feet of Bluetooth range (even has walls blocking).

Bluetooth Compatibility

This portable Bluetooth speaker under 40 bucks is also compatible with all kinds of Bluetooth devices. We try a few Bluetooth devices such as iPhone 8, Samsung Galaxy S10, Lenovo Laptop with Windows 10 OS. However; ะhere are still many devices that I haven’t tried with this Angle 3 Ultra 3rd Gen speaker, but according to specs, the company claims. It supports many Bluetooth devices such as Amazon Echo, Amazon Echo Dot, iPad, iPhone, Samsung Galaxy, Samsung Note, Smartphone, Mac, Computer, Laptop, and Tablet.

If you want to use a speaker with some non-Bluetooth devices like an MP3 player or other audio sources with no Bluetooth, I suggest that should use the AUX port to connect.

Note that the OontZ Angle 3 Ultra 3rd Gen does not support the NFC pairing feature.

Portable Bluetooth Speaker Under 40  – Battery Life

When it comes to battery life, we very impressive. If adjust the volume to 50%, the speaker can offer up to 20 hours according to the company claimed. At the full volume, they can offer less than 10 hours, 8 – 10 hours approximate.

For full charge need 6 to 7 hours by charge via USB port.

OontZ Angle 3 Ultra Review – The Sound Performace

Best waterproof Bluetooth speaker

The sound quality, we can not forget to talk about when we want to portable Bluetooth speaker review. Honestly, we impressive the sound quality in terms of loudness. The loudness is over its speaker’s size. This small speaker also has a pretty tight bass but can not compare to the expensive wireless speaker like Bose or JBL which of course Bass must be stronger. The mid is sweet and very detailed. The treble is decent clear even adjusts the volume to almost max.

As mention above, one thing we very amazing is the loudness. The small Bluetooth speaker from Cambridge Soundworks can offer a loud voice plus a waterproof IPX7 rating, so ideal for outdoor use. Of course, they offer the sound louder any speakers at the same size. And also produce sound pretty clear at full volume.

One thing that I notice, at high volume with bass-heavy music some distortion may be occurring. But for songs that not too much bass strong, the Angle 3 Ultra will offer perfectly sound clear, that’s amazing too.

They not good for stereo separation but if you pair 2 speakers together (this model support) and use them in stereo mode, they will give much better.
