Saregama Carvaan Mini 2 is a classic portable speaker with pre-recorded songs collection. The new Carvaan Mini 2.0 is the updated version of the Carvaan Mini with more retro Hindi songs and a new AM/FM radio mode. It is been available in various bright colours, but the one we have received was in Sunset Red. The Saregama Carvaan Mini 2.0 is a cute tiny portable speaker that offers great portability. It even makes an elegant yet everyday addition to your desk, studio or home.
Talking about features, it has three buttons on its left, one for Bluetooth, one for AM/FM radio mode and Saregama button plays preloaded Saregama music. Topside contains Back, Play/Pause, Forward, Volume Down, Volume UP and the power button. On the right side, there is the AUX output for attaching your headphone/speaker and listening to music on another speaker. Finally, on the back, there are a host of new ports including micro-USB charging, Aux-in and USB port. The dimension is similar to its predecessor.
Though Carvaan Mini 2 is a compact, it provides clear and offers more depth than most of the speaker from the same price point. I definitely like the volume range on these speakers. The sound of this speaker is highly detailed and clear even at high volume. One of the interesting features that make this speaker stand out is the built-in 351 superhit retro Hindi songs. The pre-loaded songs on Mini are evergreen hits from legends like Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhosle, Mohd. Rafi, Kishore Kumar and Mukesh. There is an option to listen to your own playlist by connecting the smartphone using Bluetooth. While streaming music from Bluetooth, I noticed no lag or stutter while using the speaker and noticed the music playback output to be consistent even from a distance of 10 meters. However, going beyond 15 meters does lose the connection. Last but not the least, the Carvaan Mini 2 also comes with an FM speaker for the urban audience and AM for smaller towns and cities. Carvaan Mini 2 has an antenna on its back, that makes it easy to receive FM/AM signal even from a place that is surrounded by multiple walls.
Saregama Carvaan Mini is definitely for those who want a perfect musical companion while travelling or even spending weekends at home. Overall, it’s fashionable and classy with a tasteful presentation along with well thought out details.
