Frequently Asked Questions
Belle is a full-range speaker, with two full-range speaker drivers and a bass woofer for a 2.1 stereo system.
Belle will play clear, full sound with bass that is not overly boomy or overpowering, but rather deep and resonant so that you can feel the bass in your body as it was intended by the artist.Last updated:
Not at all! Belle can be operated at 100% full power on its built-in rechargeable battery.
However, Belle can also be operated while plugged in as well, so you can use it all the time in your home or office if you'd like to.Last updated:
No, Belle can handle 6 Bluetooth connections, so if the 6 connections are taken up by Bluetooth speakers, you can still play audio through Belle through a direct 3.5mm aux input. Belle Lite works the same way, but with 4 maximum connections.
This also means that you can connect multiple phones to Belle instead. For example, you can connect 4 speakers and 2 phones, and have the two phones take turns playing the music.
The important takeaway is that Belle can handle 6 Bluetooth connections and Belle Lite can handle 4, which is how many speakers each can connect to respectively if the music is playing through the aux cable.Last updated:
Currently we have two models, both with free shipping:
Belle and Belle Lite have all the same basic features, bass range, etc. but the main difference is that Belle has a carrying handle while Belle Lite does not, and Belle Lite is approximately 20% less powerful at its peak, and it can handle 4 Bluetooth connections instead of the regular Belle’s 6.
We recommend if you are planning on taking Belle around and outside, to get the full version. If the handle and number of Bluetooth connections are not as important, I would recommend the Belle Lite.
The Belle Lite is $219 whereas the Belle is $269.

Belle can also intelligently auto-connect to speakers and devices that you've connected it to in the past.Last updated:
Belle works like any standard Bluetooth speaker. You can connect a phone to it via Bluetooth and play any audio on your phone, no matter the app or music player.
