Anker’s Soundcore line of audio products is now popular enough that Anker is dropping the company name. This is, therefore, merely the Soundcore Trance. Why “Trance”? It could be the variety of light patterns and colors available, some of which are positively psychedelic. Or it could be a claimed 101dB volume level, which is theoretically louder than a snowmobile or car horn
A dual Bluetooth connection lets you pair it with two phones at once to share DJ duties, or another Trance to provide a stereo image or to simply pump up the volume. For best results, plug it in, but there is an included battery that claims up to 18 hours of play time. There’s even a built-in USB port to keep your phone charged.
A flexible handle on top makes it easy to carry your Trance to the pool, and an IPX7 water-resistance rating means it’s safe once it gets there. The Soundcore phone app offers three party games, including Truth or Dare and Spin the Bottle. Parents beware!
