Professional reviewers liked the Theater Solutions B83GR, endorsing it for podcasts. Experts at RTINGS liked its waterproof construction. Reviewers at Find This Best loved the loud SPL output that reached 87.9 dB with a minor 1.25 dB DRC sound deterioration rate at the highest volume during testing. However, if you need a louder speaker, see our SOUNDBOKS Go review. Critics had misgivings about this device’s relatively narrow 116.5Hz to 10.5Hz frequency response range and the high 5.63 dB standard error, resulting in an uneven sound profile. It doesn’t have an EQ and produces weak low bass that is unsuitable for music and movie enthusiasts. Testing revealed a 6.5-hour battery life, 126 ms iOS Bluetooth latency, and 102 ms Android Bluetooth latency. Check out the Sony XP700 review for lower latency. However, analysts were disappointed that it doesn’t have speakerphone or voice assistant functions. It has a 6.70 dB directivity index, resulting in poor soundstage performance, and it downgrades stereo to mono.
