The Tribit XSound Go has no business sounding as good as it does for the price it sells for. And yet it does. It\u2019s battery life is even double that of the Beats Pill and on-par with the Anker Soundcore. It makes you wonder how these other companies can justify their prices. While it does have a small bit of distortion at max volume, the Tribit XSound Go is still one of the best bluetooth speakers around.\r\nWhy We Like It - Tribit XSound Go\r\nWe are really happy to be able to write this Tribit XSound Go review because, despite being a budget-friendly portable bluetooth speaker, the Go was able to keep up with most other big-name speakers in every category. It\u2019s amazing that a portable speaker, for this price, can sound this good. And if you're looking for a conference speaker, check out our review on the eMeet M2 AI powered wireless conference speaker.\r\n\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nThe battery life for the Tribit portable bluetooth speaker clocks in at about 24 hours. By comparison, Anker Soundcore, a big name player in the portable bluetooth speaker world, also clocks in at 24 hours. Kudos to Tribit for matching this. And don\u2019t believe the adage about getting what you pay for. The sound quality on the Tribit is excellent with the ability to fill a medium-sized room and only a little bit of distortion when played at max volume. Still, if you\u2019re looking for name-brand recognition and ear-exploding sound quality go with the JBL Charge 4.\r\nDesign\r\nThe Tribit XSound Go won\u2019t be winning any design awards because of its generic, pill-shaped design, but you shouldn\u2019t let that make you gloss over it. The XSound Go is durable, rugged, and can be thrown down a flight of stairs without any worry. The buttons are large, easy to use, and the Tribit XSound even comes with a headphone jack. With many bluetooth speakers opting to forego this feature, it\u2019s nice to see a company include it in their bluetooth speaker. If a headphone jack isn\u2019t for you and you prefer something more modern, consider the Bose SoundLink Color II.\r\nValue\r\nThe Tribit XSound Go will cost you about $40, so don\u2019t worry about forgetting it at the beach or by your friend's pool because you can easily go out and just grab another one. By the way, it\u2019s IPX7 rated too, so don\u2019t worry too much about dropping it in your friends pool for a second or two either. It even comes with its own carrying case, but unfortunately this is sold separately for about $10.00. If you\u2019re looking for another similar, inexpensive, and small-style bluetooth speaker, please try the Oontz Angle 3.\r\nTribit XSound Go Wrap Up\r\nYou won\u2019t be disappointed if you opt for the Tribit XSound Go as your portable bluetooth speaker of choice. What it lacks in name-brand recognition (and, really, is that so valuable?) it makes up for in battery life, sound quality, durability, and water-resistance. All the things you want in a portable speaker.
