A few months ago I told you about a fairly good wireless speaker that responded to the name of Tribit MaxBoom. And since the Bluetooth speaker landscape is never full of news, today we will talk about one of the higher-end models. I'm talking about Tribit MaxSound Plus, or the protagonist of today's review.
Review Tribit MaxSound Plus
Design and construction quality
From an aesthetic point of view this Tribit MaxSound Plus does not stand out much from the usual look of many Bluetooth speakers in circulation. Fully assembled in plastic, size 198 x 68 x 65 mm and has a weight not very small 595 g. It is still rather portable, although you are not in front of a pocket speaker. Aspect helped also by the presence of a fabric lace to be able to hang it around. Furthermore, the certification IPX7 makes it easily usable even in the shower or in the pool.
On the upper part we see the various command keys: the Power one, for pairing Bluetooth, Play / Pause, Volume +/- and XBass mode. Only note is perhaps an excessive harshness in their pressure. Below are the classic 4 rubber feet to prevent it from slipping when resting on smooth surfaces. Behind, however, in addition to the subwoofer grid, there is the cap that hides the microUSB (sigh) port for charging and the AUX input.
Connectivity and audio quality
The connectivity department is guaranteed by the support Bluetooth 4.2, not really up to date but adequate for such a product. Also because fortunately the lag during the reproduction of the videos is all in all irrelevant. In front of the grid hides the two drivers from 45 mm, assisted by 2 passive radiators. The plant in question generates a total of 24W (12W x 2), with a very sustained and fairly clean volume. Raising the range of frequencies as much as possible kneads a bit, even if the low frequencies tend to remain outlined and sufficiently full-bodied.
If it is believed that the basses are "excessive", you can deactivate the XBass mode using the appropriate button. Personally I preferred to leave it active, but if you want a less unbalanced EQ towards the "V-shaped" you can do it. More generally the sound produced by the Tribit MaxSound Plus gives a good impression, however to shine more are the highs. The basses have a good impact but they are the averages that are partially sacrificed.
Inside the Tribit MaxSound Plus there is a battery from 2200 mAh with which to obtain a discrete autonomy. Considering that I tried it mostly at a volume on 70%, he downloaded after about 15 / 17 hours of listening, so I feel satisfied. La is less satisfying recharge which, with 5V 1.5A support, employs around 4 hours to return to 100%.
Conclusions and price
Tribit MaxSound Plus can be purchased directly from Amazon at a price that is around around € 50. A very low cost but worthy for what it offers, between water resistance, good sound fidelity and considerable autonomy.
