What’s the very first thing that involves your thoughts whenever you hear the phrase “Tribit?” Perhaps a journey app. Or a fridge-friendly Alexa gadget. Or a critter from Star Trek. However most likely not a conveyable Bluetooth speaker.

However that is simply what Tribit XSound Go is — and an affordable one at that, retailing for $36 on Amazon for the black model and $40 for the blue one. 

From the images on-line, there is not a lot to differentiate the Tribit from different generic Chinese language audio system. However in hand it feels sturdy sufficient and has an understated matte-finished exterior that looks like it ought to maintain up properly over time. It weighs in at zero.84-pound or 380 grams.

The speaker is absolutely waterproof (IPX7 rated) and comes with a lanyard that permits you to cling the speaker from a bathe head, a tree department or something that has a hook. It has an auxiliary enter and a built-in microphone for making speakerphone calls. (Do not count on business-grade efficiency, nevertheless it works acceptably properly.)

Battery life is rated at a powerful 24 hours at medium quantity ranges, so it is packing a pretty big battery that most likely contributes a good quantity of weight to the general package deal. The one draw back is that the speaker takes round four hours to completely cost through microUSB.

A part of the Tribit XSound XS’s declare to fame is that it is the Wirecutter’s decide for finest price range Bluetooth speaker, a incontrovertible fact that’s been shamelessly included into the speaker’s title on Amazon.

Does it actually benefit such a distinction? Nicely, I have not examined each low cost transportable Bluetooth on Amazon, so I am unable to definitively say it is one of the best price range Bluetooth speaker on the market. However I can say that, for the cash, it is actually one of many higher ones I’ve examined.
