" ...  The sound is what sets this apart from others I have listened to. ... It is a very pleasant balance that is very clear and not blaring. ... I mostly listen to an eclectic mix of music and radio broadcasts at low to medium volume in my kitchen and on my front porch, but it can crank it out loud enough to fill a large patio or a basement. ... I keep the bass boost on as it seems to improve the sound quality which is amazing.  ...  "

" ...  The sound is good for the price of this speaker. ... It is not near the sound quality as my Bose but the price makes it like trying to compare apples to oranges.  ...  "

comment
" ...  It sounds great so far. ... The bass boost is firm and crisp, not gigantic and janky. ... I would say the sound overall is 20% crisper than the Tribit XSound Go that I own, roughly, which (sadly) the bass crapped out on after about 7 months of normal use.  ...  "

" ...  This speaker is awesome. ... Live version of "China Grove" by the Doobie Brothers is crisp and loud.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Played it on Bluetooth for 8-1/2 hours straight at two clicks below full volume. ... Good for a personal speaker or to entertain a few people.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The MaxSound gets plenty loud enough, but the most important point to mention—the music is well balanced.  ...  "

comment
" ...  Frankly, the bass and soundstage of both speakers is astonishing for the price. ... Real bass from both.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I do find the extra bass feature is a requirement as without it bass is minimal. ... Tribit contacted me about my comments re the bass & offered to send me a return label AND a 20% off coupon to upgrade to their 360° XBoom.  ...  "
comment
" ...  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 xbass works well (like with Sony's Xtreme bass headphones) but you will lose a hint of high clarity for me, it's going to mostly be off, but if want a pint sized thumper, this'll do nicely.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Buyers wanting absolute max loudness, with crushing bass, irrespective of a flat frequency response, should perhaps look to other speakers.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Puts out amazing sound and the bass is much improved over my Anker and my smaller Tribit speakers.  ...  "

" ...  With a modern phone (bluetooth 5.0) located in the far end of a 3k+ sqft house through a single floor and multiple walls of different decades (70s house, phone in the 90s addition) this speaker gave no hesitation while I moved throughout the house walking between it and the broadcaster with absolutely no degradation of sound. ... As a nice benefit, it also reports (rough) battery power back to your phone as expected in the latest and greatest Bluetooth devices .  ...  "

" ...  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.  ...  "
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.  ...  "
