Over the years Tribit has made some of the better budget portable Bluetooth headphones and speakers, starting with its and , respectively. The latter speaker is still around and delivers surprisingly good sound for less than $30. Now Tribit is doing a budget version of Bose’s excellent speaker. The new model is called the StormBox Micro and it’s one of the best-sounding pocket-size speakers I’ve heard.
Now, full disclosure: Last week, in what appeared to be a pricing mistake, this speaker briefly dropped to as low as $26.77, down from $38.40. But that lasted less than a day, and now it’s back to $50.
Unless, that is, you use the discount code of PMDBTS10 at checkout, which drops the price to $35. The code is working now, and should stay active until Oct. 16 — so, straight through the big Prime Day sale and beyond, or while supplies last.
You can read my, but the quick take is that like the Bose it has more bass and fuller sound than most tiny Bluetooth speakers. It’s also fully waterproof (IP67 rating) and can deliver up to eight hours of battery life at moderate volume levels. While it doesn’t seem as durable or as sleek-looking as the SoundLink Micro, it does seem well built and you can wirelessly link two together to create a stereo pair.
