The Tribit Stormbox Pro is a small Bluetooth box, which should convince with a loud 360 degree sound and water resistance. TechnikNews tested the speaker. 

Unboxing and initial setup

The unboxing of the loudspeaker is unspectacularly normal. In addition to the speaker, there are instructions and a small USB-C cable included in the delivery. The initial setup is also very simple. Loudspeaker on, it automatically switches to Bluetooth pairing mode. Quickly call up the Bluetooth settings on the smartphone, select the box, and off you go. Unfortunately there is no app.

Stormbox design and finish Pro

I really like the design. The biggest ProOne problem with Bluetooth speakers is portability. Tribit solves this very cleverly by installing a carrying handle on the speaker. The design is slightly square and the speaker is placed vertically. There are several buttons on the upper side. A plus and minus button for volume up/down, a circle button for start/stop and next/previous and an X-Bass button for an optional bass boost. There is also a control button for the Bluetooth connection and for on/off. Below this there are several LEDs for the battery level.

There is nothing wrong with the workmanship. The box is covered with woven fabric, which feels very high quality. On the back there is another rubber strap, behind which there is a USB-A port and a USB-C port.

Connectivity options

The Storm Box Pro can only be connected via Bluetooth (5.0). That's a shame, since many users would like to have an optional jack socket. There is a stereo feature for that. This works but only with a second box. Telephoning is also possible via Bluetooth, but as soon as you move a few meters away, the audio quality on the other person deteriorates.

Battery life and charging process

The battery life of the Stormbox Pro is very good. The box is loaded exclusively via USB-C, which is at least the most convenient for me. The battery capacity is given as 2x 5000 mAh, i.e. a total of 10000 mAh. The box can also be used as a "power bank", for which purpose the USB-A connection is installed on the back.

The manufacturer specifies a battery life of 24 hours. But I don't listen to music all day long, but at different volumes over different days. Roughly estimated, I got there about 18-19 hours on one charge. At medium volume there are maybe 20-21 hours inside. However, the box does not support fast charging, the charging time is approx. 6h 30 minutes. So overnight charging is the easiest.

sound of the storm box Pro

Sound is always subjective. Tribit speaks of 360 degree audio, which should fill an entire room. I can confirm the latter. The maximum volume is very impressive for such a small box. A little cheating was done with the 360 ​​degree audio. The speakers are mounted on two sides and produce "a kind of 360-degree audio". The sound is good for me personally. In normal mode, the bass is quite "dull" and hides a little behind the highs that dominate the mids. With the "XBass" mode, which can be activated at the touch of a button, it dominates the sound. I would rate the mix as solid though. If you have the chance, you should get the box Proown.

Prices and availability

The Storm Box Pro currently costs 99 euros The Amazon, with a voucher you can save another 10 euros. The box is available from Amazon or from Tribit even.

Storm box Pro: Conclusion

The Tribit Stormbox Pro leaves a good impression. For a price of around 100 euros, the box offers good sound, good workmanship (water resistance and portability) and good battery life. Where do you cut corners? Definitely with the connections (no 3,5mm jack), the charging speed and the sound (compared to established brands like JBL or Bose). But so are the costs. So the Stormbox is good value for money Pro given.

If you have a little more money to spare, you can also look at the Sonos Roam, which David Haydl tested hat.
