Our Review

Introduction

The Escape P9 Bluetooth speaker is a high-quality, water-resistant speaker designed for outdoor use. With its powerful sound and strong bass, it aims to deliver an immersive audio experience. Available in Black, Tan, or White, the Escape P9 is an attractive and well-built device. Priced at approximately £999 in the UK (as of May 2019), it positions itself as a premium option in the Bluetooth speaker market.

Design and Build Quality

Measuring 73 cm tall with a square footprint of 22 cm, the Escape P9 is a substantial speaker. Weighing in at 12.3 kg, it is not the most portable option, making it less practical for certain situations. However, it is designed with ergonomics in mind, allowing for easy movement when needed.

The Escape P9 boasts high-quality construction and a solid build. The speaker is water-resistant and rainproof, ensuring durability even in challenging weather conditions. This feature makes it suitable for outdoor use, where it can withstand splashes and rain showers.

One potential drawback is the travel case, which is made of plastic. There have been reports of the case cracking, which may raise concerns about its long-term durability.

Connectivity and App

The Escape P9 offers a reliable and high-performance Bluetooth connection. Users can expect a stable connection with minimal dropouts and good range. This makes it easy to connect the speaker to compatible devices such as smartphones, tablets, or laptops.

To enhance the user experience, the Escape P9 comes with a free app available on both Android and iOS platforms. The app provides control and customization options, allowing users to fine-tune the sound settings and adjust various parameters to their liking. While the app offers useful features, some users have reported limitations and occasional connectivity issues.

Battery Life

With up to 8 hours of listening time at a normal sound volume, the Escape P9 offers decent battery life for an outdoor Bluetooth speaker. However, it is worth noting that battery life can vary depending on factors such as volume level and usage patterns. During our testing, the battery performance of the Escape P9 was in line with the manufacturer's claims.

To help conserve battery life, the speaker is equipped with a rechargeable Lithium Iron Phosphate battery (LiFePo4). This type of battery is known for its longer lifespan and higher thermal stability compared to other lithium-ion batteries.

Sound Quality

The Escape P9 delivers powerful sound with strong bass, providing an immersive listening experience. The speaker's 360-degree sound output ensures that the audio is evenly distributed, allowing for a consistent and enjoyable soundstage. The sound quality of the Escape P9 is impressive, especially considering its portable form factor.

In comparison to other Bluetooth speakers in its price range, the Escape P9 holds its own. The bass quality is particularly noteworthy, offering a deep and punchy low-end that adds richness to the overall sound. However, it is worth mentioning that the mid-range and high frequencies may lack a bit of clarity and detail compared to some higher-end audio systems.

Twin Mode and Stereo Configuration

One of the standout features of the Escape P9 is its twin mode capacity, which allows users to combine two speakers for a stereo configuration. This feature enhances the overall soundstage and provides a more immersive audio experience. By spreading the speakers apart, users can achieve a wider stereo image, creating a sense of depth and spatial separation.

During our testing, we found that the twin mode worked seamlessly, with both speakers syncing well to produce a cohesive stereo sound. This feature is particularly useful for larger outdoor gatherings or parties where a wider sound coverage is desired.

  • Attractive design
  • Portable and easy to move around
  • Good battery life

Conclusion

The Escape P9 Bluetooth speaker is a premium option for outdoor audio enthusiasts who prioritize powerful sound and durability. With its high-quality construction, water-resistant design, and strong bass performance, it offers a compelling audio experience. While its size and weight may limit its portability, the Escape P9 excels in delivering immersive sound for outdoor gatherings and events. Overall, despite some minor drawbacks, the Escape P9 is a solid choice for those seeking a powerful and durable Bluetooth speaker.
