Sound Quality

The Boat Stone Grenade uses a 1.75″ full-range 5W driver that provides explosive bass. It has enough sound to fill a normal-sized bedroom. When it comes to blasting high bass music, no other speaker in the price range of 1.5 K INR comes close to the BOat Grenade. But the sound clarity for high notes is not particularly great when compared to the JBL GO. So if you are looking to pump up the music, go for the Grenade.

Connectivity

  • The Boat Stone Grenade uses Bluetooth 4.1 technology that allows quick pairing with your smartphones or PCs. The lossless transmission makes for a good acoustic experience. You cannot connect the speaker at the same time to two devices which is a drawback. It also has no FM radio and no port for Pendrive.

Battery

  • The Boat Stone Grenade is powered by a powerful 1200 mAh Li-Polymer battery.
  • Before using it for the first time, it should be charged for 2 hours. It will become fully charged in 2 hours.
  • The charging port has a red indicator light showing that it is being charged. When it is fully charged, the light will turn off and you can unplug the charger.
  • You can use the speaker while it is being charged also. But it is not recommended. Also, you can use it as a normal speaker by plugging in the AUX cable. The company claims to provide 7 hours of music playback time. But in reality, you would get almost five hours of playtime at maximum volume.

Pros

  • The prime reason to go for this product is its bass performance.No another speaker in the similar price range beats the Grenade from Boat.
  • The Rugged finishing is very impressive. I dropped it multiple times, and the matt finish doesn’t even have a scratch on it.
  • Connectivity is smooth and fast. Automatically connects to your phone every time after pairing.

Cons

  • Voice clarity at high is decent but not good enough. Slight distortions at high voices when the battery is not fully charged.
  • battery life could have been better.

VERDICT

If you are looking for a speaker in the price range of 1.5K INR with explosive bass, look no further. The Boat Stone Grenade is second to none in the range when it comes to bass performance. The sound clarity at highs and mids may not be the best in the range. You can go for the JBL GO if you are not particularly a fan of blasting loud music all the time.
