Best Budget Speakers Under NPR 3000 in Nepal

Gone are the days when you required big TVs and expensive sound systems to enjoy your movie and music. These days all you need is your phone and a good-sounding portable speaker. Fortunately, both these industries have come far from the old days. Today, you can get a decent pair of smartphones and Bluetooth speakers on a budget. In this article, we will be focusing on the latter so without further ado here’s the list of best budget portable speakers under NPR 3000 in Nepal.

Best Budget Portable Speakers Under NPR 3000 in Nepal [Updated]

5Ultima Dynamite

Ultima Dynamite

We are starting this list with the Ultima Dynamite. Starting at around Rs. 2,000, it is the most affordable speaker on this list. This speaker is from Ultima, a Nepal-based OEM, which is growing in popularity in both offline and online spaces.

Coming to the Dynamite, it sports a rugged design and is also IPX6 rated against splashes. Despite the tough design, the speaker is pretty lightweight as it’s mostly made of plastic. It has a built-in lanyard, too, which makes it easy to carry around. There are rubber feats throughout the outer woven texture allowing for different placements. 

That said, I recommend placing it upright, as placing it otherwise can cause the surface underneath to vibrate, ruining the experience. Ultima Dynamite can get pretty loud, making it a viable option when going on a picnic or any outdoor adventure. That said, the overall audio quality is not that great if you are looking to install it on your desk or bedside. It has a boomy sound that sometimes masks mids and other details.

There is even a microphone in here that lets you activate voice assistant from the phone. Likewise, you can use it wired with the included audio jack or skip the phone entirely and blast your favorite music from an SD card. The company claims up to 11 hours of battery life on a single charge, but in our test, it was around 5 hours on high volume. That said, the endurance can vary depending on the usage.

4Purple PBS-001

Purple PBS-001

Next, we have PBS-001. It’s from Purple, which is another new Nepali OEM brand. The brand mainly focuses on smartwatches and TWS earbuds. As a result, the PBS-001 is the only portable Bluetooth speaker from the company so far. It’s priced at NPR 2,99, but you can get it for cheaper as it tends to go on sale on Daraz time and again.

It has a unique dome-shaped design with the driver firing upwards through perforations that remind me of the Y-shaped logo of the Lenovo Legion brand.

At 240 grams, it is the heaviest speaker on this list, which I would have been okay with if it packed a high impedance driver, but what you get here is a 4 Ohm speaker with a 5W output which is loud but not uncommon in this price range.

Talking about the sound, Purble PBS-001 delivers clear vocals and decent highs. You can notice distortions at higher levels so it is best to leave the speaker at 60 – 80% range. There is bass too but it is not prominent as the mids and the highs. 

Weirdly enough, all the buttons are placed on the bottom in a horse-shoe-like arrangement which is not convenient at all. The buttons don’t have the same level of tactility – some buttons are more clicky and others which kind of feels weird. Also, the 4-hour battery life is just decent.

Purple PBS-001 Specifications:

  • Dimension: 100 x 100 x 45.5mm
  • Weight: 240 grams
  • Audio Driver: 5W, 4 Ohm, 52mm
  • Connectivity: Bluetooth 5.0
  • Controls: Power on, Volume up/down, Play/Pause button
  • Battery backup: Up to 4 hours
  • Protection: IPX4
  • I/O: Micro-USB (Charging)
  • Built-in microphone: Yes
  • Price in Nepal: Rs. 2,499

3Havit SK800BT


Third on our list of best budget speakers in Nepal is the Havit SK800BT. Before we get into the audio bits, I would like to highlight how well-designed this speaker is. It has this compact form factor that is best suited for a computer desk or even bedside. This is a front-facing speaker with a fabric grille over the driver. You have all the controls on the top where you can easily access them. They are quite clicky as well. All the ports are concealed by a flap at the back. You also get a lanyard for times you do decide to take the speaker outdoors.

I was pretty surprised by its loudness as Havit advertises it as a 4W speaker. It gets a little noisy at the highest volume but it’s still enjoyable nonetheless. Havit SK800BT has better depth and instrument separation compared to the Purble PBS-001. The bass, though not punchy, is also better.

The only complaint that I have with this speaker is its battery life. It is only rated for 6 hours of playback at moderate volume. Also, it takes quite a long time to charge fully (~ 4 hours).

Havit SK800BT Specifications:

  • Dimension: 96 x 68 x 64mm
  • Weight: 190 grams
  • Protection: IPX6 (Water Resistant)
  • Audio Driver: 4W,
  • Connectivity: Bluetooth 5.0 (up to 10m)
  • Controls: Play/Pause, Volume up/down, Multi-function button
  • Battery: 3.7V / 900mAh
  • Battery backup: Up to 6 hours
  • I/O: Aux in Jack, MicroSD / TF Slot, FM, Micro-USB (Charging)
  • Built-in microphone: Yes
  • Price in Nepal: Rs. 2,199

Mivi Roam 2

This is not a problem with the next speaker on this list which is the Mivi Roam 2. It is a Bluetooth speaker with great battery life which also sounds good. The main selling point is undoubtedly its battery life. Mivi Roam 2 claims endurance of up to 24 hours but it is at mid-volume and you will have different experiences depending upon your usage. Still, the speaker lasted over multiple office days in our tests.

It’s compact, and the build quality is great, with an official IPX7 rating. There’s a wide range of colors to match the aesthetics of your room, and you can even take it outside by hanging it by the lanyard. You can even use it plugged in using an Aux-in cable. The built-in microphone means it can take on the role of a speakerphone too. 

Even better is the overall sound quality. It is not as loud as the Wrap, nor does it have sharp trebles. The sound signature is quite balanced, so whether you listen to pop, rock, or hip-hop, you will surely get a pleasurable listening experience. 

All in all, it’s a good all-around speaker for NPR 3000. But then, the balanced sound is not for everyone, as it can feel void of impact at times.

MIVI ROAM 2 Specifications:

  • Dimensions: 100 x 45 x 85 m
  • Weight: 204 grams
  • IP Rating: Yes, IPX7
  • Speaker Output: 5W
  • Battery: 2000mAh
  • Charging time: 3-4 hours
  • Playing time: 24 hours (mid-volume)
  • Connectivity: Bluetooth 5.0
  • Price in Nepal: NPR 2,599

1Realme Cobble Speaker

Realme Cobble

There is a speaker which tops it in this regard, and it’s the Realme Cobble which costs just around INR 100 more. It’s shaped like a stone — no surprise here and this Electric Blue variant that I have here has this camouflage design which I like personally. It has a top-firing audio setup which I didn’t find in many of these budget speakers.

Well, it spreads out the sound more uniformly, allowing you to enjoy the music regardless of where you are from the speaker. The bass hits harder, and the overall sound feels more impactful, making it a good option for Hip-Hop, EDM, and other energetic genres.

If you don’t like the sound of the speaker right out of the box, there are two more sound profiles you can switch to through the Realme Link App. The app also offers useful features such as the option to configure the multi-functional button as well as activate the auto switch off.

Realme Cobble Bluetooth Speaker Specifications:

  • Weight: 200 grams
  • Connectivity: Bluetooth 5.0 (up to 10m)
  • Codec: AAC, SBC
  • Audio setup: Dynamic driver + Passive radiator
  • Output power: 5W
