As is the case with most Chinese companies, Tronsmart tends to undercut its competitors with low prices. The Tronsmart Halo 100 is no exception; for less than £100, it has powerful sound, attractive LED lighting, and a number of ways to connect to other devices. It came out at the same time as the Tronsmart Halo 110, which is essentially the same speaker but comes with a microphone for karaoke. The Tronsmart Halo 100 works wirelessly over Bluetooth 5.3, but it only supports the SBC codec, which makes sense given how much it costs. With dimensions of 198 x 150 x 287mm (WDH) and a weight of 2.72kg, it is bigger and heavier than most portable Bluetooth speakers.

Tronsmart Halo 100: Description

However, it is still lighter and smaller than the Tronsmart Bang, which got four stars. Like that model, the Halo 100 has a handle that makes it easier to carry. It also has an IPX6 rating for water resistance, which means that it is safe from strong water jets coming from different directions. From the front, you can see that the Halo 100 has two mid-tweeters and a large woofer. Together, they look like an open-mouthed face. Above the “eyes” is a smaller, less noticeable tweeter, and behind the “mouth” is a 5.6-inch passive radiator.

The Halo 100 looks most like the Soundcore Rave Neo, which costs £40 more. However, the Rave Neo only has 50W of power, while the Halo 100 has 60W. If you want even more power, you can get the JBL Boombox 2 (80W when plugged in), the Anker Soundcore Motion Boom Plus (80W), or the JBL Xtreme 3 (100W), but you’ll have to pay between £80 and £150 more.The Halo 100 takes five and a half hours to fully charge and has a battery life of up to 18 hours, but this depends on how loud you play your music and if you use the LED lighting.

Tronsmart Halo 100: Pros and Cons


  • Super loud 60W sound
  • RGB lighting with 5 ambient modes
  • Great companion app with custom EQ


  • The lights don’t have a steady mode
  • When it’s loud, high notes don’t sound as good
  • Almost as heavy as a ton of bricks

Tronsmart Halo 100: Design

Tronsmart Halo 100 review

The Tronsmart Halo 100 feels great and is made to last. It has a strong fabric handle that makes it easy to carry. It only weighs 4.6 pounds, so it’s easy to grab and bring the vibes wherever you want. It measures 13.15 x 7.56 x 6.46 inches, so if you’d rather, you can also put it in a normal backpack.

From a design point of view, it’s beautiful. It looks like a speaker from the past, with its square shape and classic grill on the front. Three interactive lights shine from behind the grill and pulse to the music. These add to the look and also give a hint of what’s below. Don’t worry, we’ll tell you everything you need to know in a moment. You get a strong battery, a built-in power bank, a slot for a TF card, a USB port, and an auxiliary jack if you don’t want to use Bluetooth.

Tronsmart Halo 100: Controls

On the top of the unit is a control panel with a power button, an indicator for when the battery is low, a play/pause button, and volume control buttons. There are also buttons that let you switch between different light show and input modes. The stereo pairing button lets you connect to another Halo 100.

On the control panel, you can also turn on a feature called SoundPulse, which is a custom digital signal processor made just for Tronsmart. we not usually a fan of DSP, but SoundPulse makes the bass hit harder without adding distortion to the higher frequencies. Most DSP makes my ears tired in just a few minutes, but I could listen to SoundPulse for hours at a time without getting tired of it.

Tronsmart Halo 100: Audio Quality

When the DSP was turned off on the Halo 100, songs like “Grapejuice” sounded great up close at low to medium volumes. When we switched to a hit song like “As It Was,” turned up the volume, and turned on SoundPulse, the speaker did a great job of filling a large space with bass that was surprising for a speaker this size. The Halo 100 lives up to its name of “party” for sure.

When testing a lot of speakers, it’s easy to start thinking about the best way to use each one. However, most people don’t want a closet full of Bluetooth speakers that are only good for certain tasks. During the week, you can use the Halo 100 to listen to random playlists on Spotify, stream radio, or listen to audiobooks with the light show turned off. On the weekends, when you have a house full of guests, you can turn on the light show and have a party.

Tronsmart Halo 100: Battery life

The Tronsmart Halo 100 takes 5.5 hours to fully charge. Once it’s charged, how you use it changes how long it will play. That is, if you blast out the party mode (light display) and turn it up to full volume, it won’t last as long as if you don’t. It will work for about 16 hours with the lights on and the volume at its highest level. Without the light show, it can play for an amazing 18 hours straight. That’s more than enough for even the wildest party.

Price and availability

In April 2023, Tronsmart released the Halo 100 and Halo 110 portable party speakers. The Tronsmart Halo 100 sells for $110, but you can easily find it for $90 at Amazon and other stores. The Tronsmart Halo 110, which is almost the same as the Halo 100 but has a karaoke mic added to it, costs $120. You can’t find it on Amazon yet, but you’ll be able to find it in more places soon.

Final Words

For the price, the Tronsmart Halo 100 is a good party speaker. This is a well-rounded device that is great for parties, outdoor hangouts, and poolside events. It has RGB lights that move to the music, a fully customizable equalizer, and many ways to play music. With Bluetooth 5.3, the connection is fast and stable, and the battery lasts forever. It’s hard to charge it back up, and it’s pretty heavy, but other than that, it’s a great mid-range speaker.


Is Tronsmart a good speaker?

The Tronsmart Bang is a portable, tough speaker that is easy to recommend to people who want big sound for a reasonable price.

Do more expensive speakers sound better?

Even if all you do is listen to Spotify and watch YouTube videos, the quality will be much better as you go up that price scale. In general, you should only buy the most expensive speakers if you work in audio production or listen to very high-quality media.
