DOSS SoundBox Touch Bluetooth Speaker 2020 Detailed Review.
DOSS SoundBox Touch Bluetooth Speaker: If you’ve been looking for a portable wireless speaker, you’ve certainly got a lot of options to choose from. The problem is, it’s difficult to find one that sounds great, but can also put up with constant use.
We’ve recently discovered a speaker that meets these requirements, and we’re here to share it with you. Known as the DOSS SoundBox Touch, it’s a portable speaker with Bluetooth connectivity and some pretty neat features.
We’ll be taking a closer, but critical look at it, to see if it really does meet our standards. We’ll look into the build quality, sound, battery life, durability, and try out its features. Let’s get started!
Upon opening the box, we were immediately impressed with the feel and look of the SoundBox Touch. Measuring in at 6.6 x 2.9 x 2.7 inches, it isn’t necessarily the most compact speaker we’ve ever seen, but it feels really “solid” in your hands.
Along with the speaker they’ve included a micro USB charging cable, male to male audio adapter, and a 3.5mm aux cable. In addition, there’s a durable storage bag that gives you a great place to store it when you’re not using it.
Although the DOSS SoundBox Touch is a wireless speaker, you can use it “wired” by utilizing the included auxiliary cable. However, if you’re like most, you probably want to take advantage of its Bluetooth capabilities.
Supported by virtually every modern smartphone and tablet, Bluetooth needs to be “paired” in order to wirelessly communicated with your device.
To complete the pairing process, simply make sure that your smartphone or tablet has Bluetooth turned on and enabled. Next, press and hold the play button. The ring on the top will begin to blink alternating colors.
Located on the top is the capacitive touch control. It’s a small interface that lets you play, pause, or skip tracks. In the center is a small dial that offers a unique way to adjust the volume.
Simply swipe your finger in a clockwise motion to turn up the volume, and counter-clockwise to turn down the volume.
Arguably the most important and critical feature of any speaker is the sound. With the DOSS SoundBox Touch, we weren’t expecting that great of audio quality, especially considering the budget-friendly price tag it has.
To our surprise, the sound was quite good – MUCH better than we originally expected. Now it isn’t studio quality or “audiophile-grade”, but we truly think it’s something special for what it is.
The durability of the DOSS SoundBox Touch needs to be clarified since it’s currently rated as the number one outdoor speaker on Amazon.
We feel that this is a little bit deceptive because our assumption is that every “outdoor” speaker should be at least water-resistant. Unfortunately, the SoundBox Touch isn’t rated for any amount of water resistance, so we wouldn’t recommend it for any environment that could be exposed to water or splashing.
We wouldn’t classify it as a rugged speaker, but you could definitely use it outdoors. Fairweather would be the key – you’re going to want to make sure it won’t rain since. Possibly a perfect pick for sunny days.
Inside the speaker is a 2200 mAh lithium-ion battery that seems to do a great job keeping it powered and running for a long time.
Although it came partially charged when it was delivered, it’ll achieve a fully charged status after roughly three hours. Charging is a simple process. Just plug in the included micro USB cable and let it sit for a few hours.
Once you’ve fully charged it, DOSS says that you can expect 12 hours of battery life. We found this to be a little bit generous as we found 9-10 hours to be a little more realistic. A lot of different factors can affect battery life, so everyone may experience a slight difference than this.
Overall we were very pleased with the DOSS SoundBox Touch. It’s a solid, efficient, and fully wireless speaker that sounds great and boasts a sleek and attractive appearance.
Available in four different colors and at a budget-friendly price point, it’s easy to see why a lot of individuals are gravitating towards it. The popularity seems to be continuing and it’s a speaker that does well with all genres of tunes.
