When it comes to wireless audio, there are two main segments in the consumer electronics market: the wireless headphones and wireless speaker markets, such as shower speakers. After all, nobody likes to get in a tangled mess when listening to their favorite tunes, and with battery technology having made advancements, one can enjoy wireless audio for hours on end without having to look for a power outlet. Tribit has come up with their all-new Tribit XBoom Bluetooth speaker in an attempt to break new ground in this particular market. When you have been using a Bluetooth transmitter so far to connect you phone to your audio system, this speaker might be something you want to look at.
First of all, a wireless speaker needs to be portable. Having a wireless speaker that is bulky and heavy simply does not make sense, as that is good for the home which would then make it far more suitable to be connected via wires. Not so with the Tribit XBoom, where its extremely portable form factor does not betray in terms of performance since it is more than capable of delivering a more muscular sound courtesy of its 360° sound ability and integrated XBass technology for boosted bass and rich sound.
Specially designed to deliver high-quality, immersive all-round sound, the Tribit XBoom works and sounds great no matter where it is placed. This is made possible courtesy of its innovative cylindrical design, sending out rich notes in all directions in order to thrill listeners. A simple press of a button will allow the XBass Technology to kick in, where powerful dual bass radiators deliver additional depth and dimension.
Just in case you need additional sound, you will be able to enjoy the benefits of a wireless daisy chain set up by pairing one XBoom speaker to another. A single XBoom is able to deliver 24 watts of audio power, hence linking a couple of them in a wireless daisy chain setup will double the fun. The built-in battery will offer up to 20 hours of playtime before requiring a recharge, and hooking up a couple of these creates full theater-style, surround-sound in order to enhance all-round enjoyment of movies and TV shows.
Relying on Bluetooth 4.2 connectivity, the XBoom plays nice with all Android or iOS devices and will arrive with an asking price of $69.99 a pop.
