Don’t set your expectations too high for this speaker. It’s not a Bose or a Sony. It’s a paisa vasool

ZB-Rocker Thunder Plus is a portable party speaker and comes as a pleasant surprise for those on a budget.  If your expectations are not too high for a portable multipurpose speaker, ZB-Rocker performs pretty decently


ZB-Rocker Thunder Plus speakers feature dual high-performance drivers enabling  40W sound output. Complementing the audio performance are the dazzling DJ lights. The speakers also feature an ON/OFF switch to control multi-color racing lights while the music plays. The included wireless microphone makes a decent companion for karaoke performances. The speakers are equipped with a built-in FM receiver and compatible with most Bluetooth enabled devices including Apple, iPhone, and iPod, most Android devices and other smart devices for simple wireless audio streaming. Rocker Thunder Plus also features an onboard USB reader and TF card slot to play MP3 music files or plug-in any device via Aux. The built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery of 4400 mAH and provides for extended playback and music streaming of 4 hours on a full charge. The speakers are also bundled with a remote.

Though priced at Rs.3999 it is available both on Flipkart and Amazon in their festival deals special offers.

What’s Great

Multiple uses 

It can be used a party speaker, as a workshop speaker or as a simple classroom speaker complete with the interactivity. The average cost of renting a speaker for a workshop or party starts from Rs.1000. Here you can get the speaker with the karaoke mic for Rs.3999


The microphone is pretty decent and much better than other similar products in this range.

Battery Backup

For a speaker of this size (23.2 x 20 x 51 cm)  the battery backup is around 4 hours. That’s impressive. 

What’s not great

Built quality
The built quality quality could be better. Plus it’s a portable speaker which means a certain sturdiness in design would have benefited.

Sound options
As an entertainment speaker I wish it had more sound modes. The echo sound can be a nuisance at times.

Last Word
Don’t set your expectations too high for this speaker. It’s not a Bose or a Sony. It’s a paisa vasool product that does deliver value for its pricing. If you are on a budget this product well delivers enough value. On amazon it has a 4 star rating  from almost 1400 customers.  I particularly like its multipurpose uses. Definitely worth it!
