Setting up the Kevler BT-202 is as easy as setting up any wireless speaker available today. Just simply turn on the speaker by moving the power button to the left.

Its blue light indicator will start blinking as a voice will say “Bluetooth” and two short beeps indicating that the speaker is ready to pair. Just choose the “BT-202” on your device to pair with the speaker and you’re all set!

It was an easy set up for me pairing my smartphone with the Kevler BT-202. The “M” button placed on the leftmost of the button row on the top of the speaker switches the speaker’s mode from Bluetooth to FM Radio.

To increase the volume, just simply hold the "+" button and hold the "-" to lower volume down. The speaker has its own play and pause button and lastly, it has a dedicated button for answering calls.

Sound Quality

Minimalist and attractive portable speaker
Getting the best possible sound from Kevler BT-202 is as easy as connecting, tuning to the volume that suits you, and enjoying it.

The Kevler BT-202 can deliver you nice music wherever you go.

Sound is smooth. Bass is punchy. This speaker produces decent sound and can give you satisfaction for its price point.

Clarity of the sound is alright as expected. On bassy tracks, you can hear the BT-202 would give you the right amount of bass you’ll look for a portable speaker.

For the loudness, the Kevler BT-202 can go really loud and can fill up to a medium-sized room considering its portability. However, when you crank it to the highest volume, expect sound distortion, but it will be very minimal.

Pros - Portable, punchy bass, smooth sound
Cons - minimal distortion on max loudness, no microSD

Verdict

The Kevler BT-202 is the latest portable speaker available in the market that will satisfy you with a decent sound at affordable price point. Your PHP 1,599 definitely deserve to be spent on the Kvel BT-202.

We just wish that it has a microSD slot aside from Bluetooth connectivity as an option for music source.

The Kevler BT-202 is available nationwide at Ansons Emporium, the SM Department Store, Imperial Appliance, Gaisano Mall, Metro Gaisano Department Store, the Electronics Boutique, SM Supermarket, Savers Appliance, CSI Appliance, LYR Group, NCCC, and Solidmark.
