I had written a good review for this speaker but I have to update. It was good for a few uses with great sound but after about 2 hours of use the speakers are blown. Now even on a full charge it's rattling and sounds like a cheap Chinese speaker. I'm really disappointed. I initially thought this product was great but it didn't even last more than 2 hours of use. Beware.
Same day i got the product listened to my music with the volume all the way up then literally 5-10 minutes the speaker would keep cutting in and out real choppy sounding. I knew i was getting a $28 speaker but with all the good reviews i thought it would be a steal but no you get what you pay for i guess.
After numerous attempts, driver updates, countless reboots it refuses to link with my HP Laptop while all other Bluetooth devices work fine. Tribit does not offer support. So, No Support, Does Not Work! Why spend your money on an expensive paperweight!
In full disclosure, I must admit that I miss my Bose Bluetooth speaker. Their acoustics are impeccable. The "Tribit XSound Go Bluetooth Speakers" only cost a fraction of my Bose speaker. I first purchased the "DOSS Touch Wireless Bluetooth" which is in the same price range; I returned that product because it lacked bass and was unimpressive overall. The Tribit, however, has plenty of bass for such a small speaker. Ironically, the problem that I have is the treble! I think it is an inherent problem with smaller speakers and not this particular device. I have installed an equalizer on my computer which mitigates some of the problems and makes the speaker sound very acceptable.
The pros: • The speaker is loud! It is perfect for a jam session in your bedroom. I'm not sure it is suitable for large or multi rooms. • The quality is good, and the speaker looks like a million bucks. • It has an excellent microphone that works well with phone calls and even to interact with Siri or Cortana. • The Play button allows one to answer, reject or end a call. It also can play or pause a song. Finally, it allows you to skip a music track forward or backward.
The cons: • While the bass is fairly impressive, the treble is slightly overriding. • The battery does not nearly last for 24 hours if you like to blast music as I do • The speaker can only be paired to one device at a time. If you are listening to music on the computer and the phone tries to connect, the speaker will sometimes disconnect from all devices. The speaker does have an av input one could connect to the computer but obviously, the speaker would no longer be completely portable. This could be a deal breaker for many.
After comparing this speaker with others in its price range, I realize that this speaker has such poor sound quality that I could never recommend it to anyone.
Speaker turned on but that was about it. Finally got it to pair with my phone sound was bad. When I tried to turn the volume up it went down and the other button would not work. Essentially the only two buttons that worked was power and the volume up but down button. Don't waste your money here. Buying the Beats Pill now instead.
I really wanted to like this speaker. I played Adele 19, and was very disappointed. The audio was distorted (buzzy) when trying to play bass notes at a moderate volume. I returned that unit and got a replacement, which was just as bad. Apart from terrible audio playback, the rest of the speaker is perfect.
