- Fresh 'n Rebel examined its speaker line, enhanced and given a hip twist. At first glance, they look good with the woven fabric and trendy colors, but produce the speakers also sound good?
About the design of the Rockbox speakers, Fresh 'n Rebel well thought out. In addition to the fabric and the soft-touch plastic gadgets are available in different colors that are aimed at both men and women. So you have at one end of the spectrum, dark blue, army green and gray on the other hand, light pink and turquoise.
The link to the phone via bluetooth is very simple, but you can also use the included audio cable. The Cube and Round will automatically search for a Bluetooth connection when you put them on. Then you'll see how the device to your phone in the list and you can make the connection. The Brick, Fold and chunck include a Bluetooth button. These models also have a power indicator, so you can see how full the battery is still fast.
Rockbox Cube Fabriq Edition
The Cube (€ 29.99) is 59 by 59 by 59 mm, the smallest of the bunch and weighs 140 grams. The handy format ensures that you can take it easy in the bag. Nbsp; The speaker portion includes four faces of the cube, so you have surround sound. The music sounds a little flat, but the asking price is decent.
Rockbox Round Fabriq Edition
The batteries of the Cube and Round (€ 39.99) will be 8 hours. Furthermore, the round speaker splash resistant and have to be so do not be afraid by the pool. While soaking in water of course is not a good idea. The design of the Round is very funny, but you do have sound only from the top. As a result, the quality is a little less in comparison with the Cube. 112 grams, this speaker is the lightest.
Rockbox Brick Fabriq Edition
The Brick (€ 59.99) is simple in design. It does seem a bit like a brick, but the size is 155 x 59 x 59 mm still perfectly manageable. Particularly in comparison with the Chunk. The 4000 mAh battery is 20 hours.
Furthermore there are the top-lit touch buttons for volume, pause / start and skipping of tracks. This way you do not need for any action to pick up the phone there. The Brick has a passive baswoofer and drivers for deep bass. The sound comes from three sides and is good.
Rockbox Fold Fabriq Edition
The Fold design (€ 89.99) appeals to me most. The speaker is hidden behind a flap, which doubles as a stand when open flips him. The gadget can bring this safely in the bag. Funny is that the music stops playing immediately when it closes and disconnects the Bluetooth connection.
Like the Brick has this device a passive subwoofer, deep bass and touch buttons. The sound quality is virtually the same, though the music forward. The Fold (and also the Chunk) distinguishable, however, because it can be used as a power bank. It is equipped with a USB port where you can recharge as the smartphone.
Rockbox Chunk Fabriq Edition
The Chunk (€ 129.99) is really a beast of a speaker with dimensions of 217 by 67 by 25 mm. It weighs 934 grams with almost a kilo. Not a speaker that takes just as fast in the bag. If only makes chunck use of dsp technology, allowing you to play music at full volume without distorting. The sound is good and the bass is powerful, but there's also a decent price tag.
Although Chunk in sound quality is the best of the bunch, I think you choose rather to € 130 for a speaker of a more famous brand. The brick contrast gives good sound, is not nearly as expensive and will appeal to more people. If you are willing to pay a little more for a nice design, I would go for the Fold.
