The DOSS Soundbox bluetooth speaker is one of the best bluetooth speakers because it offers 360 degree sound at a measly $40.00 price tag. That doesn\u2019t happen too often with bluetooth speakers in this price range. Couple that with innovative and customizable touch controls and you have a bluetooth speaker ready to tango with the rest of them.\r\n\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - DOSS Soundbox\r\nYou would think the DOSS Soundbox produced only average sound quality based on its budget-like price. You would be wrong. Not only does it have fantastic sound quality it also has 360 degree sound. When you think about it, it\u2019s strange how many bluetooth speakers don\u2019t have this nice little feature. You only really see it in ones that are obscenely expensive. Kudos to DOSS for producing one that isn\u2019t. If you want to compare this with another wireless speaker option, you should read our review of how Harmon Kardon updates SoundStick speakers with wireless everything.\r\n\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nThe Doss Soundbox Touch bluetooth speaker has an overall battery life of about 12 hours. Good, but the JBL Charge 4 bluetooth portable speaker has a full-day 24 hour battery life. The sound quality on the DOSS Soundbox is better than expected. The stereo sound can be played through the 12W high-performance drivers which feature enhanced bass and less than 1% harmonic distortion. The sound is also broadcast over 360 degrees, meaning you will get to experience the great sound performance no matter which way you or the portable wireless speaker is facing.\r\nDesign\r\nThe feature that stands out above the rest is the touch controls located at the top of the device. It\u2019s easy to switch between the three main options to play music: Bluetooth, Micro SD (for when you want to play music via a micro sd card), and Aux-In, and the touch control is fast and responsive. Overall, the build quality of the DOSS Soundbox is excellent and there aren\u2019t any rattling or loose components in the unit. The micro USB charging is also a nice touch. Just make sure you don\u2019t put it anywhere near water because it isn\u2019t rated for water resistance. The Oontz Angle 3 is one of the bluetooth speakers to have a high, IPX5, water-resistant rating if you absolutely need it.\r\nValue\r\nDon\u2019t be fooled, just because a bluetooth speaker isn\u2019t breaking the bank doesn\u2019t mean it doesn\u2019t produce good sound quality. For its price, which is a measly $40.00, the DOSS Soundbox touch portable speaker produces good sound. The slightly more expensive Bose SoundLink Color II bluetooth speaker also has impressive sound quality if you want to go with a more established brand. The DOSS Soundbox also comes in a variety of colours like navy blue, pink, tiffany blue, and white. You also get an extra micro USB cable, if you don\u2019t have one already, because the DOSS Soundbox employs USB charging.\r\nDOSS Soundbox Wrap Up\r\nThe DOSS Soundbox is an excellent portable speaker for those who are looking to break into the world but not wanting to break the bank. It\u2019s battery life is only average, sure, but how often do you listen to music for 24 hours straight? Bottom line, go with the DOSS Soundbox if you want to experience the full effect $40.00 has to offer.
