If there’s one fixed among the many Tribit model, it’s that the sound is all the time larger than anticipated. That’s nonetheless the case right here because the StormBox Blast will get loud. Actual loud. Like, embarrassingly loud.
Our first few days with this speaker we had it within the workplace, listening to playlists, podcasts, and audiobooks. Occasionally we might crank the quantity up simply to see what it was able to producing.
We rapidly discovered that we both needed to wait till after regular enterprise hours or play it in very small bursts. It didn’t matter what sort of music we’d play, we felt like we had been being a nuisance if we obtained about round 40%.
