In terms of sound quality, boAt Bluetooth speakers are always my favorite. Despite being a slightly smaller driver size than what Mivi Roam 2 has, it is ahead in bass quality. It is so deep and punchy that the music often distorts.

But Mivi Roam 2 is not too behind in terms of bass. Is it still worth it at this price point? Yes! it produces decent amount of bass & crystal clear sound.
