Boat Stone 1400 Vs JBL Flip 5: Comparison And Review

At this time of competition, companies are doing various kinds of experiments to get a market share in the industry, the Bluetooth industry is one of the most growing industries currently in India. The two settled companies JBL and Boat have launched some of the best speakers in terms of Quality and Affordability for the Indian Customers let’s have a look at them.

Boat Stone 1400 Vs JBL Flip 5: Detailed Analysis

DESIGN

Just look at it doesn’t it remind you of a Bazooka if you think the same its sound production is the same as a Bazooka equipped with 30-watt drivers, powerful enough to make you a portable DJ. Talking about the design it is a plastic build but not a cheap one it’s the high-quality plastic embedded with steel chunks giving it a hefty look it comes in several colors also.

JBL Flip 5

What I enjoy best about the Flip 5’s design is that there isn’t a lot of wasted space. No unusual rounded pieces are generating an eccentric shape, and no bizarre clips are protruding out. It’s simply a little cylinder the size of a small water bottle or a portable coffee mug. This means it fits easily into a water bottle pouch on a backpack, but it also fits nicely next notebooks or laptops within your bag because it has a thin, long chassis (rather than a rounded oblong one). The Flip 5 measures slightly over 7 inches long on paper, with circular ends that are less than 3 inches in diameter.

The speaker is quite attractive. Taking it out of the bag and placing it on a table, and the pulsing subwoofers on either side of the gadget look great while they’re moving. Because those subs fire bass in both directions, that design flourish serves a functional purpose as well. The black unit I have isn’t particularly showy, with the shiny orange JBL logo on the front providing the only significant splash of color. I appreciate the rubber rings on either end because they aren’t perfectly symmetrical and provide some character to the speaker’s shape.

Which one is better?

If you like traveling like to toss a Bluetooth on your move or want to create a small gathering hotspot or listen to music calmly then JBL Flip 5 is for you, or if you like large gatherings in your backyard where people can chill, dance easily purchases boat 1400 because of its large drivers and heavy sound but because of it’s a large size it is less portable.

SOUND AND PORTABILITY

If you love to groove to Punjabi music this one’s for you it’s large 30-watt stereo speakers can produce enough buzz to make your room like a home theatre, talking about its practical use it comes with 2 modes Indoor and Outdoor mode it equalizes the music accordingly, it is loud and bassy but it also has a downside sound clarity this speaker can give you an adequate amount of sound quality so you have to keep this on your mind. Otherwise, it is a good product from Boat. And another major issue for this speaker is its portability it is heavier than it looks approx 3kg if you’re bored then you can also do an exercise with it

This compact speaker isn’t exactly light, and when I tossed it into my backpack, I was aware of its presence. However, if having a relatively powerful speaker for an outdoor trip or a backyard gathering is vital to you, it isn’t excessively bulky. A 22-watt stereo speaker and bass radiators are included in the JBL Flip 5. One of the best small-format Bluetooth speakers I’ve tried is the Flip 5. This, I believe, is due to JBL’s super-unique driver, which is disguised under its round grille. However, when combined with the side-firing subs, the odd-shaped driver produces a remarkably complete listening experience.

Which one is better?

The Boat 1400 has large drivers which give you a little boost in the section of audio and bass but compared to the JBL flip it lacks in the department of quality and clarity, JBL gives you a better sound quality even having small drivers and gives you a full 360 sound experience.

CONNECTIVITY AND BATTERY

The boat speaker is rich in ports from AUX to SD card reader you name it has it, the speaker comes with Bluetooth v4.2 with a maximum range of 10m. Talking about the battery it comes with a 2500 mAh battery which is quite insufficient approaching its price range it takes 3.5-4 hrs to charge and can run for approx. 6-7 hrs on a single charge. The microphone also works fine the quality is not up to the mark but you can receive calls on it.

JBL Flip 5

Only Bluetooth is available as a connecting option for the JBL Flip 5. On paper, Bluetooth 4.2 provides roughly 10 meters of connectivity, but I can’t help but wonder why JBL didn’t adopt Bluetooth 5 for their most recent Flip model. The difference between 5.0 and 4.2 isn’t that noticeable if you use the speaker outside, as I did in most of my tests, where there are no bothersome walls to interfere with transmission.

I did note that battery life suffers at greater levels, which is to be expected, but I believe that if you keep it at around 40% max, you may get more than 12 hours of streaming time, depending on the content you’re watching. These totals only disappoint me because of how heavy this speaker is. Even in louder listening conditions, at roughly a pound and a half, it would have been good to see closer to 15 hours. The speaker may be fully charged in around two and a half hours. However, the speaker should be able to get you through a full night of festivities.

The boat also lacks in department of juice as it is only equipped with a 2500mAh battery whereas JBL has 4000mAh so you don’t have to worry about the battery level during a home party
