Tribit 360 Bluetooth Speaker Review


Need a waterproof Bluetooth speaker with decent build and sound without breaking the bank? Well the Tribit 360 is a good choice.

Should I Buy The Tribit 360?
We've heard better, but the Tribit 360 does a nice job of offering a number of the things we look for in a budget Bluetooth speaker.

There's good build quality including waterproofing, along with decent sound and strong battery life. 


Price When Reviewed
  • $69.99
Not everyone has hundreds of pounds to spend on a Bluetooth speaker, but Tribit is on hand to offer something with decent build and sound quality yet an affordable price. Here’s our review of the Tribit 360.

Previously, this speaker was called ‘XBoom’ but has been renamed to 360.

Price & Availability
It’s not the cheapest of cheap Bluetooth speakers, but at £69/$69 it’s won’t take much saving up to afford one.

You can buy the Tribit 360 from Amazon UK and Amazon US.

Design & Build
The Tribit 360 has a fairly typical design for a Bluetooth speaker. It’s a tall cylinder that’s slightly squared off.

Huge white buttons are both easy to see and use and the shape means that it will fit into place like cup holders and the like. There’s also a loop at the top so you can carry it easily and hang it up.
Build quality is decent, considering the relatively cheap price. It’s mostly fabric covered with rubbery plastic ends that grip surfaces.

On the back are buttons for things like XBass and Bluetooth. On either end you can see exposed passive bass radiators.

What’s quite impressive at this price is that the Tribit 360 is waterproof with an IPX7 rating, so it can fall into a swimming pool without worry.

Sound Quality & Features
As the name suggests, the Tribit 360 aims to offer 360 degree sound like many rivals. This means you can place it anywhere and not worry about which way the audio is being directed.

While this happens to a fair extent, it’s not the best example of 360 sounds we’ve seen. You’re main decision is whether to stand it up on end - which means one bass radiator is facing down - or on it’s side. The former can really help with bass depending on the surface.

We haven’t been able to try it with only one review sample, but if you buy two Tribit says you can connect them to create ‘Wireless Daisy Chain’. This appears to be simply a repeat rather than a proper stereo pair.
Other than those radiators on either end, there are two 45mm drivers which output 12W each.

There’s a reasonable amount of power on offer, although you might want to make use of that daisy chain feature for larger parties. Most users will want to keep the XBass feature switched on as the sound is better for it.

Otherwise, the Tribit 360 makes for a decent enough speaker for sound quality. It’s not the best we’ve tested under £100, though. There’s generally a good frequency response but there are a few dead spots in the range.

This might not be very noticeable to the average listener but to those more in-tune it will sound like there’s some parts missing a little, a bit like tuning a radio manually and not quite locking onto the signal.

In terms of battery life, you should get up to 20 hours of playback which is decent.

Specs
  • 2 x 45mm, 2 x Passive radiator
  • 2 x 12W
  • XBass
  • Bluetooth version 4.2
  • Up to 20 hours battery
  • IPX7 Waterproof
  • 68 x 180 x 68mm
  • 545g

A mid-range phone with triple rear cameras is a rare thing, especially at under £300 but the Galaxy A7 isn't an instant winner. Find out why in our full review.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018)? The Galaxy A7 is a decent choice for a mid-range phone if you're looking to spend less than £300. Highlights include an excellent screen, nice design and cameras you'd wouldn't expect to find.

Huawei Mate 20 X Review

The Huawei Mate 20 X is an obscenely large smartphone but it has many of the features of the Mate 20 Pro for less. Here’s our full review of the huge premium slab
Should I Buy The Huawei Mate 20 X?
With a bigger screen, bigger battery and smaller notch than the Mate 20 Pro, the Huawei Mate 20 X also has the same camera set up and adds a headphone jack. If you want the most screen possible, it might be for you. 
You lose the curved display, wireless charging, full water resistance and secure Face ID but for many that won’t matter if a huge display, outstanding camera and great performance are top of your list. If you want a normal size phone, get the Mate 20 Pro.
