Best megaphone of 2018
Here, I will review 3 of the best megaphone of 2018, and we will also discuss the things to consider when looking to purchase one. I hope you will make an informed decision after going through each of them. So, what exactly would anyone want to know about megaphone? I know most of us don’t really care much about the history and the origin, all we want to know is which of them is the best. Of course, I will spare you the history and go straight on to the best megaphone.
I must say I am quite a fan of megaphone, so when the question “What are the best megaphone available on the market?” came to my mind, I excitedly started gathering information together with personal experience to write this article in the hope that it may help you find the suitable megaphone. Whether you’re looking to upgrade your comfort, style, or accessibility, we have picks to fit a variety of needs and budgets.
Test Results and Ratings
|Ease of use||
№1 – Denshine Megaphone Speaker Mini Foldable Portable Handheld Megaphone Loud Speaker Bullhorn Voice Amplifer
Why did this megaphone win the first place?
I am very happy with the purchase. It is definitely worth its money. The product is top-notch! I really enjoy the design. It is compact, comfortable and reliable. And it looks amazing! I don’t know anything about other models from this brand, but I am fully satisfied with this product. The material is stylish, but it smells for the first couple of days.
№2 – Sugar home Portable megaphone bullhorn 20 Watt Power Megaphone Speaker Voice And Siren/Alarm Modes With Volume Control And Strap
Why did this megaphone come in second place?
This is a pretty decent product that perfectly fitted the interior of our office. Seems that the material is good. It has a very beautiful color but I don’t really like the texture. I recommend you to consider buying this model, it definitely worth its money. I really liked it. It is amazing in every aspect. It did even exceed my expectations for a bit, considering the affordable price.
№3 – Pyle Megaphone Speaker PA Bullhorn with Built-in Siren – Adjustable Volume Control and 800 Yard Range – Ideal for Football
Why did this megaphone take third place?
I liked the design. We’ve been using it for 2 months and it still looks like brand new. It doesn’t squeaks nor bents. Looks great in my apartment. I hope that the good reputation of the manufacturer will guarantee a long-term work. This price is appropriate since the product is very well built.
megaphone Buyer’s Guide
Loudest acoustic kazoo”great for teachers.
The Lyons Wazoo Kazoo with megaphone takes the safe and nearly indestructible classic American kazoo, adds a snap-in megaphone, and delivers a kazoo that definitely will be heard above the crowd. This excessively audible Lyons kazoo holds its own amid louder instruments. Kazoo megaphone available in patriotic colors.
The Wazoo Kazoo looks funny — which is real plus when considering a kazoo for classroom or stage use. In addition to its musical qualities, the Wazoo Kazoo is a great conversation piece.
The Creative Sound Blaster Axx 200 is a portable Bluetooth speaker with an identity crisis.
It also has up to 1hours of battery life and carries Creative’s familiar SBX audio enhancement technologies to make music sound better and phone calls sound clearer.
Now, I know what you’re thinking, you’ve been waiting your whole life for a portable speaker that can act as both a megaphone and a police siren. But bare with me for just a second because I’m going to go through this thing feature-by-feature, and believe it or not, the megaphone and siren aren’t the main event.
In my head, at least, the Bluetooth speaker aspect of the Axx 200 ‘intelligent wireless sound system’ is going to be your chief interest. And as such, it’s a thoroughly decent performer.
Pairing is easy using NFC, but just as painless if you’re on an iPhone or other non-contactless device. And once you’re up and running, sound quality is actually pretty decent.
There is a problem, though, when it comes to control. With many (most) Bluetooth speakers these days, buttons on the device itself are able to control your source – alter volume and pause tracks etc. But while the touch-sensitive panel on the top of the AXX 200 can alter volume, there’s no way to play/pause your music or skip tracks without touching your phone or tablet.
This is frustrating in itself, but the fact that you’ll find play/pause and skip forward/back buttons on the rear of the device certainly makes things even more frustrating.
The buttons are on the back because the Axx 200 is also capable of onboard music playback.
There’s a microSD slot on the rear which you can load up with MP3’s if you so wish, though navigating them can be tricky due to the lack of a screen. You can use folders to separate into albums and playlists but you’ll probably end up dumping a load of stuff in one directory and using the shuffle toggle to choose what to play.
I’m not sure why you’d want to listen to music in this fashion, given you can just pair with your phone. It seems like a very niche feature but of course no one will force you to use it like this if you don’t want to.
The Axx 200, like the Axx SBXand Axx SBX20, can also be used as a PC soundcard. So if you choose to you can play your music, games and videos out through the Axx 200 by plugging it in via USB.
It all works via plug-and-play, though one Windows 8.machine I tested on needed a lot of encouragement to get it up and running. No such problem with my Windows 8.laptop – I put that down to the occasional lottery that is using Microsoft Windows.
As an inside music system the Axx 200 is far less impressive than as a portable device, but you can use the line-out port to plug in headphones or a bigger set of speakers to beef things up if you want to. Sound quality is excellent when listening in this way, but again, whether even one person will use the Axx 200 for this I am not sure.
Like most other Bluetooth speakers these days, the Axx 200 is set up to handle your calls. With four onboard microphones placed around the base of the device, it can pick up your voice from any direction (the speakers, though, are very much forward-facing so you’re going to be wanting to sit in front of the speaker anyway).
There’s a phone button on the touchpanel with which you can answer calls without touching your phone, and from here you can even activate Google Now or Siri to dial contacts using voice commands. No need to get your phone out of your pocket.
Creative’s bundled in the same call-optimising tech we saw in the original desktop-bound Axx devices, which include noise reduction and an ability to pinpoint your voice and silence everything else so your friends can hear you properly.
It works well and if you’ve got a microSD card in that rear slot we talked about, you can hit the red record button to record your calls.
That did not happen here.
After we warned of persistent resistance in GBP/JPY two weeks ago, bears continued to drive prices-lower, eventually breaking below the under-side of the wedge pattern. And sellers were even able to continue driving-lower, albeit temporarily, as the psychological level at ¥140.00 came into play. Just yesterday morning, we saw another lower-low print but, again, this was met with considerable buying pressure shortly thereafter; making the bearish side of GBP/JPY look considerably less-attractive after the bottom-side break of the wedge.
Launchrock has by far the fewest features of any Launchrock alternative on our landing page builder rankings list.
You may only add a few elements: text, image and forms basically. It is the only builder with no option to embed a YouTube video (if you upgrade to paid you can input embed code through the HTML container). There are no Launchrock integrations with email providers like MailChimp or AWeber. Subscriber opt-in details are sent to the “audience” section of your dashboard. There is no WordPress plugin which didn’t help the Launchrock review score.
The design of the Launchrock templates is the best aspect of this tool. Launchrock features design templates that are modern and visually appealing. However, there are only seven templates so that limits your design options significantly. You can also start from a blank template but we wouldn’t recommend this.
The Megaphone feature list is very light on compared to Megaphone alternatives. Notable Megaphone features missing include no A/B testing, exit popups, Facebook publishing option, Zapier integration or undo functionality.
Digital asset delivery is a helpful Megaphone feature. You can upload your lead magnet and they will deliver to subscribers automatically.
Other important Megaphone features include two-step opt-ins, countdown timer, a small image and icon library and PayPal integration.
Megaphone templates are nicely designed with modern, visual and uncluttered designs. They are not the best we’ve seen but there are a lot of solid Megaphone templates to choose from. This aspect had the most positive impact on the Megaphone ranking and review score. One particularly frustrating design limitation is you can’t choose the color of most individual elements. You only have a few choices for the overall color palette of the Megaphone template.
Some design-related Megaphone features we found missing during our Megaphone review were image color overlay, custom fonts and custom favicon.
There are over 30 OptimizePress templates but the design felt a bit outdated and too “salesy” in our opinion.
A highlight of our OptimizePress review experience was the video lightbox feature. It is well done and looked nice.
The blocks/elements are underwhelming. Many are just glorified graphics: guarantee box, progress bar, order step graphics.
Design-related OptimizePress features lacking include an image color overlay option and parallax images effects.
The Pagewiz features list has several holes. Throughout our Pagewiz review, we found several missing features that Pagewiz competitors had. Some key things missing are a countdown timer, alt text for images, custom favicon, publish as a Facebook page, popups, exit intent and some design features we’ll mention below.
Additionally, there is no Pagewiz WordPress plugin so you will have to brush up on your CNAME records and such.
On the positive side, every Pagewiz pricing tier comes with chat support. Also, A/B testing and Zapier integration is included in all Pagewiz pricing levels.
Their digital asset delivery allows you to upload your lead magnet and unlock it once a form is filled out. You can have a “click to call” button action which is useful for mobile pages. xA unique, if outdated, Pagewiz feature is the ability to add a flash file which is rare these days but if you need that Page Wiz is your tool.
There are about 30 free Pagewiz templates (and 50 paid Pagewiz templates through Themeforest). What’s nice is you can browse the Themeforest market templates without leaving the Pagewiz tool.
Page Wiz template designs don’t stand out in any way – not great, not horrible.
Some design-related Pagewiz features we would like to see that aren’t there are icon library, image library and image color overlay.
Lander features that aren’t very common in Lander alternatives include PayPal integration to create a mini checkout page and a fantastic Google map element. You can also publish as a Facebook page. They offer Zapier integration in the Pro plan.
A/B Testing is included on all Lander pricing levels. However, in our Lander review we found that new variants can’t be a clone of an existing page which is unfortunate.
The most glaring Lander feature missing is popups which means no 2-step opt-in or exit popups. This will be a deal breaker for many.
Other Lander features not found in our Lander review are the ability to add custom fonts, digital asset delivery and, as mentioned, a WordPress plugin.
Our favorite thing were the attractive Lander templates. There are about 50 Lander templates which are all beautiful.
However, some missing design-related Lander features that would have been helpful were image color overlay, icon library and image library.
Being a new builder in a new type of page block style, BitBlox does lack several features commonly found in other more traditional tools. Lack of features is the major negative of BitBlox at this point.
Some key features it does not have include countdown timer, undo functionality, Zapier integration, digital asset delivery, WordPress plugin, custom favicon and popups.
During our BitBlox review, we would have liked to have the ability to link to lightbox forms for 2-step opt-ins. You can publish to your own custom domain or a subdomain. However, there is no WordPress plugin so you will have to manually connect BitBlox to your site with CNAME and DNS records.
We could not find a way to enter page information like title and meta description which is important for SEO. Every BitBlox alternative we tested had this feature.
A/B testing, chat support and professional integrations are only available in the professional plan.
BitBlox has 1well-designed page templates and 6blocks. You can create almost limitless designs using different combinations of the page blocks. You can start from a blank template if you wish.
BitBlox templates and page blocks have a modern, visually appealing style. They have a great mix of colors, images and fonts.
Helpful design features we enjoyed during our BitBlox review included an icon library, true parallax background and image color overlay. You can also choose your color palette.
BitBlox is one of only two tools we tested with a true (animated) parallax effect. Many try to pass off fixed backgrounds as parallax but they aren’t.
We had some minor issues with the image window during our BitBlox review tests (it was blocking the image we were trying to edit). Also at points we couldn’t get the background to change. It was either a bug or we were doing something wrong.
No major Wishpond features are missing but some possible improvements include true parallax effect (it has fixed), dynamic timer actions and an easy (no-code) custom favicon option.
Wishpond templates for popups, form and CTAs are very well done and an option many Wishpond alternatives don’t offer.
You can publish through the WordPress plugin, as a Facebook page or on your Wishpond subdomain.
Wishpond also features a marketing automation tool and a robust contest/sweepstake platform. Since these are outside the realm of landing pages we didn’t review these or include them in Wishpond’s features score but you should take them into consideration when evaluating prices.
The dashboard and editor user interface are both spacious, clean and bright – a plus for Wishpond’s ranking position.
The list of Wishpond integrations is very healthy compared to Wishpond competitors.
Kickoff Labs Features
A/B Testing as well as Facebook and WordPress publishing is available in the premium plans. Another premium Kickoff Labs feature is “magic contact data” which pulls in data from all available social media accounts tied to your lead’s email address. Kickoff Labs also has some of the most robust reporting we’ve seen for a landing page tool.
Contests, reward tracking and leaderboards for referrals are all part of the contest module. You can send Autoresponder-like emails to subscribers without an external mailing provider. Since they are not exactly landing page related, these Kickoff Labs features were not factored into the features aspect of Kickoff Labs’ ranking.
Kickoff Labs Design
You can tell design is of central importance to Kickoff Labs. The Kickoff Labs templates, editor and interface are all beautifully designed.
Throughout our Kickoff Labs review, we admired the layouts and visuals of the page templates.
While you can’t add custom fonts, it comes pre-loaded with tons of Google fonts which should accommodate almost anybody.
Additionally, Kickoff labs features an icon library, image library and image color overlay tool to help users maximize the design of their templates.
In our Kickoff Labs review score, great design in many aspects propelled Kickoff Labs over many competitors.
A few Instapage features missing were true animated parallax effect, icon library and dynamic countdown timer actions. More importantly, Instapage lacks timed and exit popups as well as pre-designed templates for forms.
Instapage templates are elegant, modern and visual. There are around 150 Instapage templates and more are released all the time. They also have a marketplace for even more Instapage templates from third parties. A lot of options compared to most Instapage competitors.
Some nice design elements Instapage features are image color overlay and an image library. The design of the tool as well as templates was a boost for Instapage’s ranking and score. How much we enjoyed using this tool is a testament to its design.
Thrive Landing Pages is packed full of features. Several of which are not commonly found in landing page tools we tested through our top landing page builder rankings.
There is a great Thrive feature called Smartlinks, for example. Known subscribers that click on a Smartlink will not be show redundant prompts to subscribe because they are already subscribed! Instead you can simply hide the redundant lead capture forms or replace them with offers like upsells more relevant to a subscriber.
Being a WordPress landing page plugin has inherent advantages over SaaS landing page tools. For example, you can insert shortcodes from a plugin (an option most Thrive competitors don’t have). You can use plugins you use with other pages like Yoast for SEO for example. Also, you have all your other pages and posts in one dashboard so that is just much easier than have your landing pages elsewhere.
The downside of plugins is conflicts with other plugins. We had one with Wordfence but got it straightened out quickly.
You can A/B test pages using third parties (Optimizely and VWO are two big players). In fact, Thrive has a post on how to split test free using Experiments in Google Analytics. But obviously, the best and easiest option would be to have A/B testing integrated into the tool. This ultimately hurt Thrive’s ranking score.
If you require chat support you should know Thrive doesn’t offer it. We used the email support systems and got a quick response.
The design of Thrive’s landing pages and lead boxes is very good but not the best out of all Thrive alternatives. They have over 150 Thrive landing page templates in diverse styles and designs. However, many are simply different layouts of the same style. They range from simpler, modern style to longer, “busy” sales pages that feel outdated. The Landing Factory is a marketplace with over 100 additional Thrive templates for sale.
Also, they should add more page blocks/sections. They have some multi element choices but an improvement here would make a lot of sense for Thrive.
ONTRApages features list is solid but has less than many ONTRApages competitors. While it doesn’t have every feature, it covers more than the basics.
On the flip side, some notable ONTRApages features available are A/B testing, exit popups, lightbox popups, a WordPress plugin, custom favicon, advanced form fields, dynamic countdown timer and custom HTML containers.
Lastly, ONTRApages features the most advanced photo editor of any landing page builder (yet it does freeze sometimes).
The design of ONTRApages is stunning. ONTRApages templates and page blocks are modern, welcoming and visually appealing. Sure to make your site look good.
The tool has over 40 ONTRApages templates for forms. These are also wonderfully designed and come in various styles.
You have a restriction on fonts and can only work with fonts designed into that specific landing page. This was not a problem for us – the chosen ones looked so nice we didn’t want to mess with them.
By the way, some ONTRApages templates are not technically free or require ONTRAport membership. You can use these ONTRApages templates in the free ONTRApages plan as long as you delete the premium blocks like countdown timer or payment processing. We would estimate more than 90% of ONTRApages template are completely free so not a big issue. Lastly, as mentioned, ONTRApages features a great image editor.
Distortion is good
Gaining access to the studio quality sounds and intelligent processing of VoiceTone singles is as simple as plugging in your mic and turning the effect on. Of course, you can always change the style or the amount of effect, but you shouldn’t need to unfold the manual unless you’re making a fire.
Strong family genes
Each VoiceTone single shares the same genes: a clean, quiet mic preamp that rivals high-end touring mixers, a die-cast metal case, rubberized no-slip base, studio quality analog to digital conversion, and the same quality processing you’d expect from our flagship vocal processors like VoiceLive 2.
All new Mic Control feature
Keyboard sound magnifier is slightly different than a guitar or a bass amp. They usually cover a wider frequency response and put you in charge of your equipment’s rig sound. They come in all shapes, sizes, and prizes. If you play keyboards, digital pianos or synths, and performing live is your forte then getting a nice keyboard amp is essential for you. Not only live, but the right keyboard amp can help you inside the studio in getting those crystal clear sounds.
Now that you know that getting a keyboard sound magnifier is a must for you, get ready to be confused as there are so many options to choose from. Different brands, various functionalities, design and all other similar factors make buying an amp extremely difficult. In this guide, we will be reviewing top amps from the best brands, so that choosing the right keyboard sound magnifier for yourself can become easy.
The ER-321is an easy-to-operate, hand grip type 1W megaphone with a removable microphone. It can be used as a shoulder-type megaphone when the microphone is detached. The newly developed polyimide diaphragm is employed to ensure high sound quality.
