Mivi Roam - Best Bluetooth Speaker to buy under Rs.2000

Are you looking for a good Bluetooth speaker as an accessory to your mobile smartphone or your laptop computer? If you are looking for a good option under Rs.2000/-, read our review of Mivi Roam before you buy one.

If you are restricted by a tight budget under Rs.2000/- and want to buy a good Bluetooth speaker then MiVi Roam is just good enough for you to give it a serious look. The brand "Mivi" is well-known for its smartphone accessories including wireless headphones & speakers, chargers, cables etc. and the Roam wireless speaker won't fail to impress you.


Weighing simply 322gm and measuring 9.5 x 9.5 x 3.5 cm in dimension, the MiVi Roam fits your palm quite perfectly and is rightly one of the Ultra-Portable Wireless speakers out there in this budget range. It has a rugged build quality and can survive on most conditions while roaming around with it. And, did I mention that it is also compliant with the IP67 water resistance standard with dust and splash resistant (ipx 5) design that like its name is really ready for roaming along.

Physical Overview of MiVi Roam

Firstly talking about its sales package, the unit that I've purchased came with a dual tone i.e. pink-grey themed box containing the unit itself (i.e. white in our case), a manual and two cables - one MicroUSB for charging and another one being an AUX cable.

The speaker is covered with a nice soft fabric shell with a non-removable carrying strap attached on the side. There are four buttons on the side panel as well featuring a power button, volume rocker with '+' & '-' button and play/pause button, along with an LED light that flashes blue when turned on. It also has a microphone pinhole beside the led indicator that can be used for phone calls where the play/pause button can be used to receive a call.

You will also notice a gasket over the side panel which when pulled out unveils a micro USB port & AUX port beneath the attached lid. Talking about the quality of the buttons, our first impression was that it is way a bit more hard to press than expected but the fact that it comes with IP67 justifies it well. The same is the feel and experience while closing the gasket lid and for the very exact reason as cited above, in our opinion.

Overall, it has a tough rubber feel on the bottom part while the upper shell gives a good premium feel while holding it in our hands.

MiVi Roam Water resistance review

This Bluetooth speaker by Mivi is claimed to be water resistant and we tested it at home and here is our first impression. When drenched with water, the speaker initially gave a lower volume when still being wet but after shaking the water off the surface it played the music perfectly without any glitch. So, it indeed is water resistant but if anyone intends to swim with it, we won't recommend it for sure.

So, IP67 comes handy for accidental water splashes or while traveling during the rainy season. At this price range, it has set its standard high for portable speakers.

MiVi Roam Looks and Style Statement

Youths of today are the ones among the many music lovers who widely use wireless devices to listen to songs and melody and apart from its sound quality, they are also quite conscious with the style statement of each and every gadget they use.

MiVi Roam is not only portable but also adds a quite decent style to suit most youths fashion patterns and you can carry it with style by hanging it to your backpacks or your jeans too without looking weird.

Its nothing funky but the elegant design of this Bluetooth speaker is definitely a head turner and at the price it is available, you cannot just ask for anything more.

MiVi Roam Sound Quality & Bass

Such a small speaker with 5watts, expecting a louder sound out of it is not normally expected. But, you will be surprised by the volume and quality of sound it produces and for a device this small, I must say it is one among the best speakers in its range. It also produces good bass, if not best, and for a Bluetooth speaker, it is more than enough to enjoy the awesome music with clarity. We even found it better and louder than some of its counterparts from brands like Logitech, Sony or even JBL.

The most important thing we took note of while testing the speaker is that its sound does not distort even at higher volumes and a decent clarity was observed while playing the music of different genres.

MiVi Roam Battery Life

Battery life is the one most important factor other than the sound quality of any wireless speakers. On our test run, the MiVi survived a little more than 4 hours on maximum volume while a few more minutes of runtime can be expected at moderate sound levels.

Further, charging took a little more than around two and a half hours which is not bad. You can use the micro USB cable to charge the speaker with any compatible adapter.

Connectivity performance of MiVi Roam

Connectivity is fast when paired and won't disappoint. It can be paired with your smartphones as well as laptops or desktops wherever Bluetooth connectivity is supported.

If you own two units of the same speaker, you can actually pair them both and turn it into stereo speakers which are again a very important feature available. However, we have not tried it with this MiVi Roam but when used on another speaker from Sony which is priced a little higher, the sound output using paired stereo setup is undoubtedly superior in all aspects.

Price of MiVi Roam and Availability

As mentioned in the title of this article, the MiVi Roam is priced at below Rs.2000/- segment. However, even though its actual price is being tagged as Rs.2999/-, it is easily available online through its official website or Amazon at Rs.1699/- as on the time of writing this article. If you chose to purchase online, you can even grab special discounts and offers which at the time of writing this article are offered with instant cash back and additional discounts. It also comes with 1-year Mivi warranty.
