Tribit X-Boom review: An incredible-sounding Bluetooth speaker for the money

Article Contents I’ll be honest – when we were first contacted about checking the new Tribit X-Boom out, I wasn’t expecting much from it. I had never heard of the company, and the design looked a little cartoonish. On top of all that, the $69.99 price tag was much lower than competing models from companies […]
