Good sounding little speaker that is definitely waterproof. But do not believe the specifications on the battery life. I have gotten no more than 6 hours at approximately 60% volume. Very disappointing for when you want to take to the pool or beach. I try to use often when working on projects in the garage and it constantly drains down
I purchased this speaker after watching Clavinejunkie's review and receiving a 40% off intro offer. I must admit that I have more than 10 different bluetooth speakers including speakers such as Bose Soundlink and Mini 2, JBL Xtreme, Charge 2 and 3, JBL Flip 4, Sony SRSX55, SRS XB 20's and 30's, Harmon Kardon G0 + Play, and several others. I purchased this speaker mainly to see if it could live up to the high praise from Oluv. Here are my thoughts...
At first I was very happy and really wanted it to be something special. After a couple of months of use, the sound is just not right. I just picked up a black Friday deal on a UE Megaboom. When comparing these two speakers, there is simply no comparison. The X Boom has a strange overall sound where the Megaboom is very clean and clear. The X Boom somewhat compares to the JBL Flip 4, but not to the Megaboom. It looks nice and seems to be well made, but the sound is sort of distorted and just is not clear.
If you and pick up a MegaBoom for $99 like I did, definitely buy it over this speaker. I paid like $40 for the Mega Boom which is about right. I would not buy it again. I will never use it except where it may be abused due to conditions. Buy a better speaker.
Happy to have received the product but was quickly disappointed when I pair it with my Note 8. Below 70% volume the audio quality is good. Above that and the unit is unable to drive the bass and mids. In fact, they are lower and the highs are amplified. This makes for a very awful sounding speaker.
went through 2 of these both had different set of issues should have bought jbl. Piece of advice when companies come to try and get in the market yeah they might look flashy or have a great price but there's a reason the big names have been doing it so long your not just paying for a name stick with jbl. I wanted to love this so bad :( Customer service can be as nice as they want but with a terrible functioning item it doesn't help much focus more on product development not the customers until you get it right!
Such a shame because this is quite a nice speaker and would normally rate a solid 5 stars. It sounds great, built well, looks good and is priced exceptionally. However both my units have this annoying vibration inside the bottom radiator that I just cannot accept. My first unit I was listening to Dua Lipa and noticed the vibration and assumed it was defective so I asked for a replacement. The replacement arrived today and the exact same issue. During the beginning of Charlie Puth's How Long and with the speaker standing upright you will hear the vibration without putting your ear close. It's not good. The same thing with Fifth Harmony's Work From Home except this song creates a more sustained vibration throughout the entire song. Dua Lipa's Last Dance literally vibrates the entire bottom radiator for the first 40 seconds of the song and sounds horrible. The vibration is worse and more consistent when you hold the speaker close to your ear but I realize this isn't a practical way to listen to this speaker however it just confirms the issue is legitimately present. AND, most importantly the top radiator has zero vibration with any song, so in my opinion this makes me feel with 100% certainty this speaker has a bottom radiator problem. I have the XSound Go and it also has the annoying vibration LOL but is a completely different speaker. Lastly I own the Maxsound Plus too and thankfully this speaker is vibration free and sounds incredible. So the only Tribit speaker I can recommend is the Maxsound Plus.
