With a very fast Bluetooth connection, this IPX7 speaker delivers up to 20 hours of playback time at medium volume before it needs to be recharged. In that case, it is expected that the plug will be plugged in for about 4 hours.

When tested, the bass was great and the mids and highs were crisp and clear. MaxSound Plus has an XBass button at the top if you like intense and intense bass. All that’s missing is the ability to pair two speakers. Still, this speaker is definitely worth the price.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which Bluetooth device should I choose?

When choosing a Bluetooth audio device, ask yourself first. What audio range do you enjoy listening to music? If you like deep bass, some earphones can’t provide the sound you need. If you like clear mids and highs, some devices, such as speakers, can be loud and distorted. Fortunately, there are often audio products that can be delivered in all respects, but at a cost.

Is the IP number important?

If you play a lot of sports or use your audio device outdoors, we recommend choosing a Bluetooth device rated IPX4 or higher. Some Bluetooth audio devices are waterproof and will not break when exposed to rain or shower. Similarly, dustproofing is important when listening to audio devices in areas with high levels of debris and particles, such as beaches and construction sites.

Which is better, in-ear buds, speakers, or over-ear headphones?

This comes down to a personal choice. Some people want to carry a set of compact earphones in their pockets and are ready to compromise sound quality a bit for portability. Others prefer an over-ear experience that is less disturbed by ambient noise and can provide a richer sound.Some people want to share their sound with others, so Bluetooth speakers are great for enjoying songs with family and friends.

If you have trouble getting things in your ears or feel uncomfortable, you should choose over-ear headphones or Bluetooth speakers.

How did you choose these Bluetooth audio devices?

These Bluetooth audio devices were selected based on three factors: functionality, sound quality, and price.

Some of these earphones are low cost and have less functionality than high cost models. However, the sound quality was good in terms of price, and the playback time and charging capacity were also good.

Some devices have additional features such as the ability to adjust the earphone volume and change the active noise canceling settings. The entire range of this audio device is almost distortion-free, even with cheaper models.

If price doesn’t matter, it’s worth trying the Tribit MaxSound Plus Bluetooth speaker. Especially if you like a loud, immersive experience when listening to music.
