Artis BT908 Trolley Bluetooth Speaker Review:
Here is the pros and cons of the Wireless Artis BT908 Bluetooth speaker.
Whats in the Box?
The box contains 1*remote, 1*wireless mic, 1*power adapter, user manual and of-course the Bluetooth speaker itself.
Design & Build Quality:
The Artis BT908 Front area contains a metal mesh inside of which there’s a 1-inch tweeter along with 8 inch sub-woofer. There’s a branding sticker at Front Bottom. The led lights makes it look funky. The sides of the trolley speaker is made up of rugged plastic to provide durability and damage protection. On the back of the speaker you will find the switches and control knobs, Fm Antenna, Power & Led Switch, Input slots, DC/MIC IN. On the top you will find retractable handle and on the bottom there’s two wheels along with speaker stand attachment. The control buttons are quite small and Remote does feel a bit flimsy though. The Overall Quality is solid and rigid.
Artis BT908 offers a variety of connectivity features such as Aux input, TF Card input, USB input, FM Radio. So connectivity definitely won’t be an issue.
Battery on this speaker is pretty good. The music playback can last upto 4.5 Hours easily. The charging time is 2 hours which is also decent. While charging the Led shows Red color and after full charge it turns to green.

Audio & Performance:
Audio output is definitely the main selection criteria for any speaker. In our testing we found out the audio output of Artis BT908 to be loud and clear. However as in most of the cases, audio starts to distort after 90% volume and the bass is a little on the low side. In the features area it is fully loaded and also offers mic connectivity. Mic can be easily connected and the output of it is also good. One thing we notice that the FM output of this device was full of distortion. We tested other features like Bluetooth, USB, Aux and all works without any hiccup. The control knobs was another awesome feature which is very useful. The remote also functions properly. We really liked this wireless Bluetooth speaker in karaoke nights and it always performed well. The Led Lights also add ambience and good vibes to your party. Overall we will say that BT908 does it’s job pretty well.
Artis BT908 is definitely one of the best wireless trolley speakers available out there but considering the price it’s a little on higher side. Build Quality is decent and the overall performance of it is also good. If you want a outdoor speaker with good audio, backup and lots of connectivity features you can pick this one. If you want a bass heavy speaker you should avoid this one.
