Tribit XSound Go: Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker
Portable Bluetooth Speakers are a dime a dozen but with up to 24 hours of gaming and IPX7 certification you will not find that much. How did the Tribit XSound Go performs.
Material and Design
The Tribit XSound Go is simply black, like many on the market. The only color variant is blue. The “corners” are rounded and on the grid is the word Tribit. On the upper side are the usual controls such as Power, Volume up and Volume down, Playbutton and of course the Bluetooth button for pairing devices. A laces for easier transport is on the right side. The entire speaker is made of plastic. The front grille is made of metal and also in black. An option with silver or gray certainly looks quite good. All in all, the speaker feels very high quality and you do not have the feeling that you only have an speaker in your hand. This is still very light and is great for traveling.
Many connections does not have the Tribit XSound Go. Here you will only find a micro USB and AUX on the back. These are hidden behind a flap to meet the IPX7 certification. More is not necessary with a portable Blutooth Speaker. The AUX connection will probably not be used very often either. Bluetooth is used in version 4.2 and the source can be up to 20 meters away from the speaker. I was about 12 feet away from my laptop and there were no crashes or anything like that. The music continued without problems through the lightweight speaker.
Operation And Functions
Like any portable speaker, it is easily paired with the device of choice via Bluetooth. Then you can control the volume or, thanks to a built-in microphone, make a phone call. If, for example, Spotify is started, you can use the buttons to control the app under Windows. There is no own app, which is not necessary. The speaker works like everyone else. The battery is quite big with 4400mAh. This is charged in just under 4 hours. The speaker is IPX7 certified, which means in this case, protection against temporary submersion. Specifically, he should survive, about 30 minutes at about 1 meter deep.
The Sound Of The Tribit XSound Go
Now we come to the most important. The sound. Built-in 2 x 6 Watt speakers. It is advertised with a crystal clear sound and good bass. You have not logged. I compared the speaker to the anchor Sound Core and I have to say, I am amazed what came out of it. The bass sounds full and heights and mids well. The whole case vibrates when the bass starts. All in all, the speaker sounds very good for the price.
A Bluetooth Speaker with which you can listen to a whole day traveling music and not even bad. Thank to the good battery. The basses are full and mids / trebles are well reproduced. In addition, this is waterproof. Thus, the speaker survives even a rain shower. Nothing stands in the way of mobile sound pleasure. Definitely a buy recommendation in this price segment.
