Tribit is an up and coming audio company working on high-quality audio Bluetooth headphones, speakers and more.

Our Thoughts on Tribit’s Flagship Products
Tribit XSound Go Portable Bluetooth Speaker
The Tribit XSound Go Portable Bluetooth Speaker is a curved, sleek speaker designed to be ultra-portable and taken with you on the go. I’m always skeptical when it comes to Bluetooth speakers that are on the cheaper end and claim to have exceptional sound, especially on the go. The XSound Go pleasantly surprised me when I paired it with my phone and started listening to some of my favorite techno tracks from my office.
Out of the box, the XSound Go is powered by dual 6-watt drivers and features 4.2 Bluetooth functionality. Boasting balanced audio, it sounds good in small and large spaces as well as outdoors from my testing.
This speaker weighs less than a pound, perfect for throwing in a backpack, suitcase, or even a purse. Its IPX7 waterproofing makes it perfect poolside, in the bathroom, or even when stuck in the rain. This is the Bluetooth speaker I brought with me to CES 2018 to keep me jamming in my hotel room after covering the show floor for the day.
I never ran out of juice with the XSound Go. It offers up to 24-hour playback or roughly 500 songs on a single charge with a With a Bluetooth range of up to 66 feet; you can roam with your devices and still get a strong enough single to listen to your favorite music, podcasts, or even talk to your loved ones with the speaker.
The XSound Go from Tribit comes in black, red, and blue colorations. It comes with a lanyard for easy carrying and a micro-USB cable for charging from zero percent to 100 percent in four hours.
Tribit XFree Color Bluetooth Headphones
I’ve been skeptical of Bluetooth headphones since I invested in a pair of Bose QuietComfort 35s for travel and work. Finding inner-ear Bluetooth headphones that sound good, block noise, and can last more than a day are key features I look for in the headphones I choose to use and the XFree has them all in spades.
The Tribit XFree Color Bluetooth Headphones out of the packaging feels like high-quality brands you’re used to seeing online and in stores. They’re extremely lightweight, crafted with aluminum housing, and the speaker itself is a tad bit bigger than you’re used to in similar headphone styles. They feature noise-canceling technology, and while they won’t rival the likes of Bose or Beats by Dre, for the price point, it’s decent and will get you through some of life’s most common noise issues.
It only takes 90 minutes to charge these Bluetooth headphones from zero to 100 percent, letting you charge quickly on the go if you need it. With up to ten hours of playback, you’re sure to have enough juice to listen to tunes during the day. One of the best parts of these headphones is the magnetic connection, quickly turning off your headphones when not in use and conserving battery life. They also feature IPX5 waterproofing, which helps if caught in the rain.
The Tribit XFree Color Bluetooth Headphones come in red, blue, and green accent colors. A micro-USB cable is provided for charging. These headphones can easily be charged from a wall outlet or a portable battery if you’re away from home.
I was impressed with the sound quality for the price point of both the Bluetooth speaker and the headphones. The sound alone was worth the purchase price for me and for most consumers looking for affordable mobile accessories, the same will hold true. Finding wireless products that stay connected, produce strong sound, and last throughout the day are key to investing in any Bluetooth technology.
The next time you’re on the market for Bluetooth headphones or speakers, give Tribit a try – you’ll be surprised by the functionality, affordability, and stylish choices no matter how you’re using them throughout the day.
