A few months ago, Tronsmart introduced a new line of portable speakers called Bang. The series is aimed at groups that love music and take advantage of the opportunity for a spontaneous party every time they meet. The main features of the Bang speakers are the carrying handle, high power, and colorful lighting. So far, the series includes two models, the Bang and the Bang Mini. We have already presented the Tronsmart Bang on our website. Just recently, a new member of the Bang family is starting to become available from Tronsmart’s official store on Aliexpress and Geekbuying, The Tronsmart Bang SE speaker. Tronsmart has already sent me a Bang SE speaker, so I can try it out to learn all about it! So let’s start the review of it.
Design & Look
The Tronsmart Bang SE retains the same cylindrical shape as the other two Bang models and the large handle on the top, with the company’s logo on it. In fact, on the Bang SE, there are two slots on the ends of the handle to insert the strap included in the package. So carrying the Bang SE becomes even easier.
The Bang SE is made of black plastic, and a metal mesh covers its front. The company logo dominates the center of the grid. Behind the metal, mesh are the speaker’s two full-range loudspeakers.
Colored LEDs illuminate these in seven colors that alternate in three different ways. This decorative lighting flashes according to the rhythm of the music and can be turned on and off according to our preferences. Really impressive effect! On the speaker’s sides, we see the two passive chambers that pulse loudly when the speaker plays music.
These help boost low frequencies, delivering powerful bass. There is the company logo on them. Surrounding the passive chambers are bright LED circles that light up in seven different colors during speaker operation, in the same way as the speaker lighting.

Control buttons are located on the top and front. We find the connection ports on the back of the speaker under a rubber cover. These are: “USB port” for connection to a flash memory stick and the Power Bank function, “USB Type-C port” for charging the speaker, “a 3.5 mm line-in port,” and the micro SD memory card slot.
Next to the USB port, there is a small hole used to reset the speaker in case of malfunction. The relevant button is pressed with the help of a pin. Bang’s dimensions are 298 x 164.5 x 118.8 mm, and its weight is 2.16kg. It is significantly smaller and lighter than the other two Bangs.
The Bang SE is IPX6 certified. This means it can be used in dusty and humid environments without risk of damage. So it can be used without fear in the bathroom, pool, beach, rain, snow, mud, etc., without fear of spoiling.
The sound of this speaker is very loud and clear. The bass is full, and the treble is crystal clear. Voice frequencies are rendered and without distortion. The sound remains clear and crackle-free, even at maximum volume. The speaker can comfortably “fill” a large room with music.
This very good sound effect is due to Tronsmart’s SoundPulse™ technology. Thanks to it, the sound is louder and more powerful than the other speakers. The sound spectrum is expanded, and the stereo feeling is enhanced.
We have a sound with deeper bass and, at the same time, high-clarity vocals. Like the other two Bang models, the Bang SE is the ultimate party speaker, as it features rich LED lighting that flashes different colors to the beat of the music. So pulse and shine go together! The lighting can be turned off or adjusted, depending on our tastes.
It still has the latest Bluetooth version, 5.3. It thus offers stable long-range connections and consumes less energy. The speaker’s battery level on compatible smartphones is displayed next to the Bluetooth symbol.
Tronsmart Bang SE can be used in several ways. Either wirelessly via a Bluetooth connection, via an audio cable to the 3.5 mm stereo AUX input, or via a micro-SD card or USB stick on which we have written mp3 audio files. Switching between functions is done by pressing the “On / Off” button.
The SE can also function as a Bluetooth hands-free. The speaker is still compatible with digital audio assistants from Apple, Google, and Microsoft. By pressing the “On / Off” button for two seconds, we can activate the function of the digital audio assistant.
We should remember the Power Bank function that this speaker supports. Its battery is 4,000 mAh, so it can easily charge our mobile phone. Handy! Its autonomy, which can reach 24 hours of continuous operation, is also noteworthy. So Bang will be playing music for our party and beyond.
The Tronsmart Bang SE Bluetooth speaker is an excellent choice for those who need a powerful wireless speaker to listen to music. Its sound is full and clear. It has a classy look, with LED lighting and quality construction.
It is a bit heavy and large but easy to carry due to its very practical handle and strap. As detailed above, it has many features such as IPX6 Certification, Power Bank, SoundPulse™, and Stereo Pairing.
