The Tribit XSound Go has no business sounding as good as it does for the price it sells for. And yet it does. Its 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.
We 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’s 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. Generally, if you like a JBL speaker but you want to get a more mobile speaker, read our UE boom 3 review.
The 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’t 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. Also, check out the Tribit StormBox micro Bluetooth speaker review for a speaker that plays full-sounding trebles and mids. Still, if you’re looking for name-brand recognition and ear-exploding sound quality go with the JBL Charge 4.
The Tribit XSound Go won’t be winning any design awards because of its generic, pill-shaped design, but you shouldn’t 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, and easy to use, and the Tribit XSound even comes with a headphone jack. With many Bluetooth speakers opting to forego this feature, it’s nice to see a company include it in their Bluetooth speaker. If a headphone jack isn’t for you and you prefer something more modern, consider the Bose SoundLink Color II.
The Tribit XSound Go will cost you about $40, so don’t 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’s IPX7 rated too, so don’t worry too much about dropping it in your friend’s 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’re looking for another similar, inexpensive, and small-style Bluetooth speaker, please try the Oontz Angle 3.
You won’t 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 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.
