ARCHEER A320 Bamboo Bluetooth speaker is one of the best sounding Bluetooth speakers, it has an upscale appearance than most speakers; it’s bamboo based with canvas, which makes it very stylish and elegant to put on display in your home without worry that it looks cheap.
Design and Build Quality
It looks like ARCHEER got their inspiration of ARCHEER A320 Bamboo Bluetooth speaker from the House of Marley’s design concept. It’s made mainly of Bamboo with gray canvas wrapped around the hub portion of the speaker.
The bamboo panel gives the ARCHEER Bluetooth speaker a rock-solid feel and it is known to be a great resonator for sound quality and delivers quality sound, and the canvas clothing gives it a combination of modern and old school high quality look.
Facing the device is where the speakers are located: ARCHEER A320 Bamboo Bluetooth speaker is a 2.1 speaker system; which means it has dual speakers with one subwoofer to deliver good mids and highs to provide the bass.
The control buttons of this Bluetooth speakers are located at the top: power button, play/pause, volume up/next track, volume down/previous track, in addition to the pairing indicator, all the buttons have a rubberized feel and a nice feedback when clicked
To understand better the functionality of each button and how to pair the speaker with your phone or tablet read the Archeer A320 Instructions written below.
On the back of the ARCHEER A320 Bamboo Bluetooth speaker there is a 3.5mm AUX port, a rest button, a charging indicator plus a Micro USB port of 5 Voltage to charge the built-in 5200 mAh battery. Also, there is a good sized port to allow airflow; so the speaker won’t get heated.
Sound Quality (Super Bass)
The ARCHEER A320 Bamboo 25Watt Bluetooth speaker has a strong sub-woofer; providing deep bass, the volume can get very loud if you like, as for sound distribution; it can easily fill a room of 14’x16’ making everyone jump on their feet, I got a lot of compliments from friends saying things like WOW it’s really loud.
The ARCHEER A320 Bamboo Bluetooth speaker has crisp highs, deep lows, brilliant clarity, and excellent frequency separation; “I could hear sounds in the music I have never heard before”.
The bass of ARCHEER A320 sounds as good or better than everything I have tested in its class.
This Bluetooth speaker produces great audio with solid bass; which can be heavy on certain tracks (little bit muddy) but I have found that utilizing the bass reducer EQ does the trick and make you tweak it as it suits your taste.
The bass is most appreciated at lower volume levels that typically sound rather tinny in small speakers. Music played at higher volume sounds great and the A320 is capable of substantial volume without any noticeable distortion.
If you like to add special sound effects to this Bluetooth speaker; you might want to use an Equalizer app for that, such as Equalizer Fx, Boom… and either use Bluetooth connection or AUX cable.
The bass remains prominent in the sound stage; however, it is clean and clear with just enough muddiness to enhance the bass performance.
I can easily say that the ARCHEER A320 Bamboo Bluetooth speaker blows away the competition even trice its price.
Bluetooth and Support of Apps
The ARCHEER A320 Bamboo Bluetooth speaker automatically pairs with the last paired device.
When I pair the A320 Bamboo Bluetooth speaker with my phone to play tracks, I usually use my iPhone’s music library, also, when I used Spotify, Pandora, Podcasts and other 3rd party apps I have never faced any problem with the connection or support.
Double Connection Option
You can connect 2 devices at the same time with ARCHEER A320 double connection option; you can pair the 1st device with Bluetooth and the 2nd using the AUX port; short press the power button and you’ll switch between the two modes.
- Power ON: Press and hold the power button for 3 seconds.

The ARCHEER A320 Bluetooth Speaker is powered with 5200mAh rechargeable battery. When I played my tunes at 50% of volume I got 10-11 hours of playtime, and when I tried to increase the volume to 80% I got an easy 6 hours, which is very good for a $70 Bluetooth speaker with super bass.
What I DONOT Like about the ARCHEER A320 Bluetooth speaker is the absence of battery indicator; The only way to know if the battery is low; you’ll hear a dimming sound output indicates that the battery is low while the LED light turns Red instead of Blue.
While reading some reviews about ARCHEER A320 Bamboo Bluetooth speaker, I found out that most people who rated it less 5 stars have a problem with the time it takes them to charge the device; because they use their PC as a source of power, to solve this problem ARCHEER recommends a dedicated 5V DC adapter which is not included, or I recommend you use your iPad’s wall charger for fast, reliable charging.
