Hello, everybody, and welcome to another great video. We've got the Tribit StormBox here today. We're going to be unboxing this and comparing it to one of its biggest competitors, the JBL Flip 5. I work in merchandising, so I can give you guys a decent idea of what to expect for your money. This costed me $50 (prices may change) on Amazon. We're going to go ahead and unbox this.
The first thing you'll see when you open the box of the Tribit StormBox, is the message, "Welcome to be Tribit Super User." Inside, you've got your Portable Wireless Speaker StormBox User Manual and a thank you note letting you know that your purchase comes with a 30-day Money Back Guarantee, an 18-month Replacement Warranty, and an Extended 12 Months Warranty if you add in your info at their website. We're going to go ahead and try that. If there are any issues with that, I will let you know in the comments section here. We have a "Thank You" card. That's pretty nice. Taking a look inside the box, we've got our little package. We're going to go ahead and step inside the box. The cardboard comes ,out and I can see that there is a charger cord buried inside the side panel. This comes with a charger cord, but no charger brick. A majority of people already have one, so it's not the biggest deal. Looking at the strap on the speaker, I would say that this is a very nice quality strap.
Now, I know that the Tribit StormBox already come with a little bit of a charge because I bought two of them. I was looking to do stereo sound and spend less money, so I got two of these for the price of one brand new JBL speaker. That's right. The JBL is around $100 (prices may change) for the Flip 5, and the Tribit is only going to cost you about $50 (prices may change).
Here's the deal. I've installed all the previous generations of the JBL speakers. I've listened to all of them, even the big boom boxes for home use, and because of that, I know for a fact that the JBL Flip 4 is inferior to the Tribit StormBox right here. The JBL Flip 5 is better than the Tribit StormBox in two ways. The JBL Flip 5 has slightly better highs, but not by much, and the power output of the JBL is a little bit higher. Now, do I think that little difference is worth it between the two? No, I do not. Number one, their build quality is very similar, but I am very impressed with the quality of the Tribit.
Looking at the Tribit StormBox, it's nice and rugged. It's waterproof, IPX7 rated, and you can power it on with one button, so it's easy to use. You turn it on and it connects with your device right away once you've set up pairing. It allows you to connect two speakers just like you could with the JBL speaker. On the bottom, you've got the auxiliary DC 5v port. The pain in the butt here is getting the flap to come out. It just kind of gets stuck in there, but it's nice and tight, and I like that.
You have here your 10w charger and your MP3 port or auxiliary port that you can plug into, so that's nice to see. It does have the XBass function, which I really do like. They're just definitely an improvement in sound, and without this feature, I think the Tribit StormBox would just be another wireless speaker. The fact that they tuned the unit to develop better sound quality through the XBass for the lower end is great, and I think for older people or people who do not like low-end, you can just shut this feature off by pressing the XBass option, so that's nice. Moving forward. What else do I think about the unit? I think this is absolutely an awesome deal as long as it holds up over time. I'll keep you guys updated in the comments section here. We're going to go ahead and do an audio demo.
Listen to the audio demo from 3:58 to 5:08.
What are my final thoughts on the Tribit Wireless Bluetooth Speaker? They're very powerful. I absolutely love them. I'm definitely going to keep and use these for a long time, as long as they keep working. I'll keep you guys updated in the comments section here if anything changes. But overall, I have been running these and running these. I have been testing out their battery life, the distance on them, they're both excellent. I think the claims that they make on distance are accurate, and I think that the Bluetooth quality is great. I also think the battery life, so far, has been satisfactory.
I'm going to keep an eye on that battery life and see where it goes. But overall, since I charged these for the first time, I've been using them and using them and using them. I went on a long two and a half hour bike ride just yesterday. It was wonderful. I was out in nature. I had these with me. The music was just pounding out of these. I was riding with my friends, and they just loved it. They thought it sounded great. It just enhanced the experience we were having together. I really feel that it's there. It's there. We didn't have any problems with them. I have yet to really have issues with them, and they're so simple. You have one paired to the other and then you connect your device to it.
Every time you turn one off, the other turns off. It's so seamless. You don't have to sit there and be concerned about this being a frustrating process. This has to be one of the easiest Bluetooth-connected devices I've ever used. You got three buttons here. The only real downside to these speakers is that they need to make it a little bit easier to open the flap to the ports. That is a real bugger, and I recommend using a nail clipper to help lift the flap. It's got a soft edge to the outside, so it won't tear up the device. The tightness is for the IPX7 water-resistance, and that's why that seal is on there so tightly. However, I think they could have made it a little easier to pop that out.
Other than that suggestion, I might recommend a tweeter in a future generation, since it just has the standard full-range speaker, full-range driver. I think a tweeter would help bring it a little bit more to life. The low ends are there. The mids are definitely there. The highs are still nice and crisp, but it would be even more crisp with a tweeter. That'd be my suggestion for a future model. Just throw in a little half-inch silk-dome tweeter. I think that would be perfect. I know it costs probably a little bit more for an upgraded version of this, but when it comes to sound quality in this size of package ,it's going to be pretty hard to beat, and at around $50 (prices may change), I don't think that there's any genuine competition that is going to compete with this.
Anyway, that's my feedback for these today. I absolutely love the Tribit StormBox. I hope you enjoyed the video. Leave a comment here and tell me what you have. Do you have the Bose? Do you have the Sony? What brand are you running? Maybe you're running Klipsch. I'd like to know in the comments section. Don't forget to share this video, leave a thumbs up, and I'll see you in the next one. Thanks so much guys. Take care.
