" ...  Initial reaction though is that it sounds great with the boost on.  ...  "
comment
" ...  This speaker sounds very good. ... Compared to the SoundCore Boost, the Tribit has a little less bass but better mid and high end sound. ... I'll turn it back on and it will stay on for several hours until I'm finished listening. ... I don't think it's too much to ask for a reasonably priced speaker that is reliable and will last . ... Any suggestions for a BT speaker with great bass and decent reliability?  ...  "
comment
" ...  It's a decent speaker that happens to also be super portable. ... The sound quality wasn't great (I'm pretty sure I can hear distortion on bass heavy songs), but good enough for the price.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The sound is well rounded . ... clear highs, even midrange, and bass that belies its size. ... It pairs right up via bluetooth, and at 26% volume (according to Windows) it's nice and clear, with enough bass to impart vibrations to my work table. ... It gets far louder than I need . ... It could easily provide music for an outdoor party. ... This speaker far outperforms the similar sized models common in stores, and is on par with speakers costing 2 or 3 times as much.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I had my Bose soundlink mini since 2013 and it finally gave out on me. ... Decent bass and build quality is great with being waterproof an added bonus. ... I typically only use this speaker for my laptop which is giving me more than I need, couldn't be more happier!  ...  "

comment
" ...  I keep the bass boost on as it seems to improve the sound quality which is amazing.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Listened side by side with Bose Soundlink Revolve+ and the bass, clarity, and overall sound are similar.  ...  "
comment
" ...  For the few extra dollars more, the MaxSound Plus will provide more clarity, very noticeable power/volume due to the extra wattage, slightly more bass (with or without the XBass on,) all while not adding much more size over the XSound Go (but the MaxSound Plus is heavier.)  ...  "

" ...  It has very good highs, mids and bass.  ...  "

comment
" ...  Terrific with rock, blues & classical music.  ...  "
comment
" ...  While the MaxBoom has a little more bass, I think the MaxSound has "punchier" bass and the mids and highs are incredibly detailed. ... But I just like the more balanced sound of the MaxSound with those crisp, detailed highs.  ...  "
comment

comment
" ...  If I have any complaint on sound, I feel it's missing some midrange.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Without the x bass system engaged, it lacks bass, and with, it seems a bit too boomy, overwhelming the clarity of the mids and highs, and muddying the mix.  ...  "
