The market for Bluetooth speakers is getting crowded with more products being released. Can the Tribit StormBox Micro Bluetooth Speaker make it to the buyer’s choice?
Composer Gilbert Galindo said that Music and Arts are part of essential human functioning. Without the other mankind or art cannot function well. Music affects someone’s mood, makes them excited or irritated, it calms and makes them more relaxed. Needless to say, having a good quality speaker gadget has a role to play.
The Tribit has been known for portable Bluetooth speakers and headphones with competitive prices, says David Carnoy of CNET. The launched Tribit StormBox gives good sound with more bass and volume at a reasonable price. Furthermore, Tribit came up with its budget version that is a smaller model called StormBox Micro. It claims to be one of the best-sounding pocket-size speakers available.
The Tribit stormbox Micro Bluetooth Speaker is quite straightforward. It doesn’t require complicated setup, simply hit the Bluetooth button and sync it to the smartphone, then it is good to go.
Like few other similar Bluetooth speakers, Tribit Stormbox can be synced with other Bluetooth speakers to create a party mode. The function is easy enough to do to enable speakers to play well together in a short time.
The product has a decent look, it is waterproof and dustproof that can be brought well anywhere. The speaker has an integrated silicone strap at the back, so it can be placed anywhere like a backpack, poles, tree branches, belt loop on the pants or bike’s handlebar. One can enjoy music without plugging anything in the ear. When biking, the strap is strong enough to hold the speakers even if the bike passes through rough roads.
The speakers come with a type C charger with USB Cable. The rechargeable battery can last up to 8 hours of usage, comparable to the Ultimate Ears Wonderboom 2 price wise. The latter one though has 13 hours battery life higher than that of Tribit Stormbox.
According to Joel Watson of thesun, the bass is pleasant enough to hear. The product is pretty small, measuring 3.87 by 3.87 by 1.37 inches that weighs around 9.9 ounces. It is small enough and yet it gives a powerful sound with more bass that is good for those who want to hear more bass.
Joel Watson, however, noticed that in windy outdoor environments, the quality of the sound reduces unlike those stable speakers like Ultimate Ears Megaboom or the Beats Pill.
For the most part, Tribit StormBox speakers work well. Syncing the speakers together could be done with ease. When used indoors, the speakers perform very well but quality reduces when used outdoors especially during windy times as observed by Watson. Whether Watson’s experience is shared by many or not, preference will still depend on users.
Overall, the speaker is a good choice. Accorded with the Editors’ Choice Award by the CNET. As it stood the test of time compared to the succeeding products in the same category.
