Better & cheaper than JBL Flip 4? $60 Tribit Xboom Speaker – REVIEW

by birtanpublished on October 3, 2020

Hey folks it always feels like a risk when you're on a tight budget and you want to spend it right you don't want to buy it dud tribe it asked me to review their budget speaker the X movement after seeing how similar it looked to my favorites small Bluetooth speaker the JBL flip before I said this might be a good comparison I haven't done a budget review in a while either if you are budget conscious yourself if you're about stretching your money comment down below I need to gauge how many of you like this kind of review or trying to stick more so with the more expensive stuff out there as always being

Transparent tribe it sent this over for a review but my assessment was not altered in any way I'll go over both pros and cons and I'll do the same test that I do on all of my speakers they also did include a discount code down in that video description below so if you do end up buying use that code to save some money I believe it's about 15% off or so alright folks I'm Jimmy with Jim's review room and I'm here to help you make that purchase decision welcome everyone to another review going over the physical features the tribe @x Puma has the same rugged

Fabric that you find on JBL the Ultimate Ears and the new Sony speakers there's similar base radiators to think jb on either side then vibrates and pulsates up and down with your music now both speakers includes a carrying strap as you guys can see and then last rotating to the rear it looks very similar once again power battery level indicator which is always a plus any water-resistant cap for your connections and the first real difference that rabbit X boom claims to offer 360-degree audio with the JBL 54 it's more directional or simply front facing front

Firing walk to the sides or the back of this thing and the audio isn't as a parent the second difference the tribe it doesn't have an array of buns instead the buns are located on the front that somewhat resembles the UE boom speakers plus and minus to adjust volume and in the middle is to pause skip and go back on your music what's cool though holding that metal button down does initiate Google assistant on your phone now before I forget here on the back the tribe it does have a bass boost button which

Demonstrate in the audio test none of the tribe it is the cheaper option the quality feels practically the same as the JBL flip for the plastics base radiators and down to the fabric feels identical with no exaggeration the buns although different have that same tactile feedback as you guys can hear that clicky and also responsive if I had to critique though having the buttons slightly raised would have helped here and identifying them physically they both have an IP seven rating which means both speakers thankfully can be submerged under water up to 3.3 feet and

Up to 30 minutes and now I love my JBL flip for but during testing the speaker doesn't float if you bring this to the pool the lake whatever and it falls in there the either better know how to swim down there and get it or you need to tie this to something crazy enough the cheaper speaker floats so before getting into the audio test let me do a quick rundown of all my other tests here to try to help you guys make that purchase decision with the flip for it you can pair to multiple JBL connect speakers and have them all play at the same time with try but you can only do a dual pair

Both uses bluetooth 4.2 and do my quick test of leaving the speaker here in the office in the back over there and walking down the hallway both speakers were able to get about 80 linear feet before the audio started to crackle that's both very very good both do take phone calls and works like a speakerphone both speakers however did not perform or do well at all both had my voice sounding very far away and at times raspy and staticky that's a word but if we do compare the tribe it sounded the worst asthma voice was lower in volume for the other person and at

Times the person I tested this with could hear their own voice last item to discuss better life tribe it claims up to 20 hours of life and JBL claims only 12 i tested both at 50% from like I do on all my speakers and was able to achieve 14 hours and 53 minutes which is impressive as some big speakers I've tested are only getting that much but testing the foot for after 14 hours I still had 50% battery life remaining so alright folks let's put on your headphones or earphones if you haven't already I'll be using professional-grade bye

Neural microphones to get the best audio experience if you're new to the channel please try this and for those who have been part of Jim to review room please send some fire emojis down in that comment sachet here yeah keep in mind the drivers are on the side as well on the front here you're not gonna get much direction of audio kind of turn this around we've extra based on a bus which over TV JBL support to define

so first up the tribe it for a 360-degree audio speaker did very well here only being slightly lower in volume than the JBL and other various competitors out there sound characteristics and the quality are very similar with only slight differences with the JBL the tribe it has a moderate amount of bass for a small speaker with or without that bass boost button on I noticed bass was more apparent at lower

Volumes and Vons higher than 50% the bass boost was pretty much minimal that although the ex boom isn't the Basya speaker it's very close to the JBL flip for it doesn't sound raspier droning but offers a bass boosted sound signature JBL is also very similar on that front as well the mid-range where most vocals and instruments are heard by the human ear both performs very similar by offering a clear and for performance a try but is slightly less forward though by just a smidge by comparing to the you wonder boom that schribman ex boom is hands-down better and the high notes on

Both do tend to get slightly stretched these are technically small speakers but what they can output is still good quality there's no ear piercing moments or very high pitched rings what high hats and cymbal crashes are hits overall music has been very much enjoyable on the try but ex boom as it has been on the JBL flip for in the end both the physical aspect and also the audio performance it is nearly identical with the JBL flip before but yet it does beep the UE 1 or boom which is also another direct competitor and it's cheaper than its

Competitors this is probably your best bet I personally highly recommend this speaker for you guys to get again I'm Jimmy with Jim's review room hopefully hopefully I helped you guys in some way here be sure to light up the conversation with fire emojis and follow me on Facebook Instagram and Twitter you guys take care I'll catch you guys on the next one bye you
