" ...  Its best in its class AWESOME SOUND QUALITY under 15 k it easily beats out jbl flip 4 and charge 3 as jbl charge is all about that bass BUT sony xb 30 got that bass too but its cool lights equalizer excellent quality sound with much higher volume with a good rubber grip and its sound enough compared to jbl and bose under 15 k ones ... 3 Barrel conmector fo r charging but it charges full in 3 and a half hour so that a great compromise ...

comment
" ...  My verdict about this speaker is that you can close both your eyes and buy it because it’s competition jbl charge 3 sells for 11.5k and at 8.4k offering better bass and slightly less treble i think this is by far the best speaker in this range of mid-tier speaker category it is almost perfect but that lack of treble makes it only to best not the perfect speaker but again if you are loooking for an speaker which sound good and portable too then this is a bang for buck deal for u  ...  "
