Attachability is the thing that sets the Tribit StormBox Micro 2’s apart from other similarly sized speakers in my mind. Take it anywhere, strap it anywhere with the convenient built in strapping system.
It has a surprising bass for a speaker that small. It claims 12 hours of playtime and the ability to charge your phone should you need it. Bluetooth 5.3 and claims of 120 feet between source and receiver are on the specs, I did about 60 in my testing as it was more than adequate.
I found the most interesting thing about this was the ability to just strap it into a tree and direct your music right toward you. I might have just reviewed too many speakers at this point, but that seemed to be the unique point about this.
The sound is good, I’ve generally been a fan of Tribit’s offerings and this is no exception. For a speaker that small it puts out more than it looks like it should be able to. That said, it’s a speaker that small. There’s an upper limit to how much it can push and sound good and I found that pretty quickly. That’s ok, backed it off a bit and for most purposes it’s pretty darn good.
One of the things you notice with this is you do need to direct the sound. It’s not all around, it’s straight forward from that Tribit logo. If you’re to the side, sure you hear it, but it seems very directed. Which is fine because you can slap it in a tree and point up to 90dB of sound right where you want to go. Secure it to bike handles. Put it in a belt. Bam this thing stays in place anywhere.
You can pair it to another Tribit StormBox Micro 2 and get stereo. I only had one so womp womp. I did not test that. Before you ask, evidently you cannot pair it with the original StormBox.
It sounds good. The price is reasonable for a speaker of this volume and clarity that doubles as a 4700mAh power bank. It’s IP67 so forgetting you left it in the tree outside your tent in the rain isn’t a death sentence.
It’s a fine little loud speaker aimed at the outdoors. While it does well indoors, that’s not where this thing shines.
I am no longer very excited by speakers. I’ve reviewed too many. This one however steps out as a good little one at a reasonable price that sounds pretty good outdoors.
