Sharp has introduced a splash-proof portable Bluetooth speaker powered by Onkyo with 20 hours of playtime on-the-go, with a 10,400 mAh battery. The GX-BT480 comes with IP54 protection which also assures durability against environmental factors such as dust ingress and water splashes. The speaker comes with a Micro SD card slot, USB input, and 3.5mm AUX input. Users can wirelessly connect with it via Bluetooth 4.2 which has a maximum connection distance of 50 metres.

The 2.0ch system with a maximum audio output of 100dB comes with three equaliser modes. Firstly, the standard mode which regulates the volume of the different frequencies at the same level. Next, the bass boost mode for a deeper and more impactful bass. Lastly, the movie mode which enhances dialogue and vocals.

It is equipped with a built-in microphone when the speaker is wirelessly connected with your mobile devices. It automatically interfaces with Apple’s SIRI and Google’s smart assistant, recognising the respective voice prompts.


The Sharp GX-BT480 Bluetooth speaker costs S$399 and is available on Lazada and Shopee.
