Sound and Microphone
The sound on the Sbode speakers is some of the highest quality I’ve heard from such a small speaker. Not only is the sound clear, but it can get really loud, which makes it perfect for outdoor use. Voices are just slightly grainy when you’re listening, but I do believe that’s due to the mesh material wrapped around it to protect it from water. When I turned it all the way up and left my apartment, I could still hear it playing all the way down the hall (sorry neighbors, had to do it for the review!). The sound stays the same, even at a high volume. So if you’re having a barbecue you don’t need to worry about dealing with a buzzing speaker that can’t handle the volume. If you have two of these speakers, the TWS function allows you to pair them both at the same time.
I’ve tested a few speakers through the years, and rarely do they have a radio option. When your phone dies or you don’t have a Micro TF/SD card, for most speakers they now become useless. If that happens with the Sbode speaker, you simply turn on the radio option so you can keep listening to music. All you do is tap the power button once more when the speaker is on to switch it to the radio.
Battery and Bluetooth
You can connect the Sbode speaker through Bluetooth, the 3.5mm cord, or micro TF/SD card. With this speaker, you can also use it for hand-free calling with the built-in microphone. After 10 minutes on standby, it turns off so you can save on the battery. Each time I turned it on, the speaker connected automatically. I never had to keep pairing my phone with the speaker. The Sbode speaker took a few hours to fully charge, but it plays for a full 8 hours (and even longer if your volume is lower).
Waterproof protection on the Sbode speakers
The Sbode speakers are weather resistant. That means you can take it in the shower, to the pool, by the beach, or anywhere else and not worry too much about it getting damaged. It can’t be fully submerged in water, but it won’t be hurt by slight splashing here and there.
