Consensus

our Verdict

The Tribit StormBox Blast is excellent for music. It has a decent default sound profile with a 49.7 to 18,500 Hz frequency response range and a -0.22 slope that emphasizes both bass and treble. Users can easily change the sound profile with the in-app graphic equalizer and presets. This stereo speaker also has a narrow, closed-off soundstage. One of its strongest attributes is its 32.1-hour battery life, which puts it in the top 5% of our certified tested speakers.

This speaker gets very loud, reaching a top SPL of 96.7dB, although there’s compression of 3.89 dB at the maximum volume. It has intuitive controls for volume and navigation, although it doesn’t work as a speakerphone. This 11.9-pound is not as portable as smaller devices, but it does have a firm carry handle. It connects via Bluetooth 5.3, with 143 ms iOS and 56 ms Android latency. This speaker is quite versatile, with a Bluetooth range of 334.6ft and dual device pairing.

Reason to Buy

  • Great sound profile
    • The Tribit StormBox Blast is great for music. It has a great frequency response with a range of 49.7 to 18,500Hz. Its sound profile is U-shaped, emphasizing bass and treble but with limited emphasis on vocals.

    • Users can also customize the sound profile with its in-app presets and a graphic equalizer.

  • Exceptional runtime
    • With a battery life of 32.1 hours on a single charge, this speaker ranks in the top 5% of the speakers we have reviewed.

  • Excellent build quality
    • Made from high-quality plastic and metal parts and featuring an IPX7-rated waterproof design, this device is as good for the outdoors and parties.

  • Portability
    • The speaker’s portable design has a carry handle for simple toting and it is battery-powered for providing power on the go.

Reason to Avoid

The Tribit StormBox Blast gets louder, so it might be more suitable for parties than the Ultimate Ears EPICBOOM speaker, which also works well for parties. It also has a much better battery life and boasts RGB lighting, unlike the EPICBOOM speaker. The EPICBOOM speaker is more portable and has a room correction feature, unlike the StormBox.

With a much louder maximum volume and RGB lights, the Tribit StormBox Blast is much better for parties than the smaller Anker Soundcore Motion 300 speaker. It also has a wider soundstage, so it’s more immersive movies and music and has a more neutral sound profile out of the box. The Soundcore speaker, for its part, is smaller and costs much less.
