I recently won the anniversary contest and chose a soundcore 2 case as one of my items…
The case itself is nicely made, well constructed, but does not make it too bulky. There is a netted compartment inside to hold cables.
This morning, I placed my soundcore 2 in its case on the roof of my car and stupidly drove off. I made it out of my neighborhood but once I picked up speed (20-30mph) on the Main Street, I heard the dreadful sound of something dropping on the road behind me. I looked back at my rear view mirror and see the black object bouncing around on the road. I pull over and go back to see what it was. When I get to it, I saw that the impact caused the speaker to come out of the case, but most of the damage was done to the case. A small scratch to the speaker itself but it still functions normally with no problem. The case has some road rash on it, but also still functions normal. I am definitely happy I decided to get the case for my speaker; it served its full purpose today…
Cosmetically, the case has took a beating already, but I think I am going to keep using it because it can be a conversation starter as to how durable it is and open up dialogue about Anker’s products.
I highly doubt that if I used a generic pouch or case for my speaker that it would have survived this drop. The case that Anker makes for the soundcore 1 & 2 speakers is made of strong and dependable materials.
Wow that’s amazing it only suffered that little damage. Good deal for those looking for a case. Yes some would replace it, but just like you, I would use it to open conversation about durability.
That is awesome that it protected your SoundCore 2. Now, that’s what a case should do… guard your device. Winning! Another notch in what we know as the Anker awesomeness.
Great read. I love how you will continue to use the case even though it has taken a beating.
Oooooh very good to see that it survived with limited damage. Great story too. We’ve all been there and left stuff on the roof. For me, it was my wallet
Haha wow. Good to know that the case did its job !
So you forget to take your speaker off the roof?
Wow… glad your speaker was OK! And thanks for sharing your real world drop test!
Nice to see how the case’s hold up to real world bumps and accidents, thanks for sharing!
I’m not happy you forgot the speaker on the roof, but I’m certainly glad to know the case holds up - and that your speaker is fine.
I’m a true believer in custom-made cases. Whenever there’s space for the product inside the case to jiggle, there’s opportunity for a bump to make it to the product and cause damage. When the product fits snugly into the case, the impact can be better absorbed by the case.
Yes, I didn’t have my coffee yet and it was hidden behind my roof rails
I agree, this case is perfect for the speaker. If anyone is interested, the SoundCore 2 bluetooth speaker and Case gift set is on sale right now for 28% off with code LASTMAS7 ($45.99 after discount)… Pretty good deal if you been eyeing a good portable speaker.
The speaker was hurt… You should take good care of it.
Amazing story and extreme testing Pleased the SoundCore is still working
