I own the Tribit Xsound Go and was more than pleased with the quality of sound and volume. I saw the reviews for the Tribit MAXSound and couldn't resist to see if it lived up to them. I just received this speaker and couldn't believe the punch this little speaker packs. It is full sound with added bass and retains clarity at max volume (no muddled bass). I'm so glad I purchased and it will be my new go-to travel speaker.
Sound is acceptable for use in my automobile. Loud and clear from backseat area, where I like my sound source to be located. Easy to pair with my Galaxy S8. Saved many $$$ over a new radio with bluetooth and SiriusXM. Very satisfied.
These are both outstanding speakers, but which one is better? It is immediately evident that both speakers are better than the Flip 4 or UE Boom 3. Frankly, the bass and soundstage of both speakers is astonishing for the price. These speakers play crisp and clear right up to maximum vole. Real bass from both. And these speakers compete well against the Bose soundlink mini II and Denon DSB speakers in terms of clarity and overall musicality. Rock, jazz, vocals, rap, classical, country, and pretty much all music sounds terrific on both speakers. Both are extremely well built and look good. Both are easy to operate. So, after playing both, side by side for a couple of hours across all types of music, some small differences become apparent. The MaxSound plays a bit louder. The X-Boom has a wider soundstage due to way it is built. It also sounds best standing up, on its end. The MaxSound edges out the X-Boom when you lie the X-Boom on its side. Other than that, well they are both really impressive and about the same. I give a slight edge to the X-Boom because it is more rugged and has a wider soundstage. But if you want an indoor speaker that is subtle looking but has rich, clear sound, well the MaxSound is really just as good. Take your pick, you can't go wrong with either one. If you are in the market for a bluetooth speaker under $200, these Tribit speakers can go toe to toe with the best Bose, Denon, JBL, Beats and others have to offer. And the price is unbeatable. Both are highly recommended.
I have put this speaker up against Anker Soundcore 2, Soundcore Boost, Oontz Angle 3, Doss SoundBox XL, UE Wonderboom, Altec Lansing, and a few others. This speaker is the best speaker I have heard in its category. It covers bass, mid, and high ranges very well. In fact I am upgrading all my friends and family from the Soundcore 2 I gave them for Christmas (10 of them) to the Tribit MaxSound Plus. A shame I missed the 30% off sale they had last month.
