Tribit StormBox Pro Portable Speaker Review

Does the Tribit StormBox Pro portable speaker have what it takes to compete with more established brands? Find out in our comprehensive review.

Remember when we used to carry around bulky boomboxes or had to bear with subpar sound from mobile devices? Those days are a distant memory now thanks to the vast ocean of portable Bluetooth speakers that have flooded the market in recent years.

One company that’s been trying hard to establish itself as a dominant force in this market is Tribit. You’d be forgiven if the name doesn’t immediately ring a bell — Tribit isn’t exactly a household name like Bose or JBL.

But that could change soon because the Tribit StormBox Pro portable speaker offers a combination of impressive sound quality and enviable battery life in a package that’s as robust as it is portable.

Design & Build Quality

The Tribit StormBox Pro is about the size of a large Nalgene water bottle, making it quite compact yet substantial. Available only in a sleek black color, the speaker is wrapped in a fabric layer all around. Even though the color choice might be limited, the versatility of black never goes out of style and seamlessly integrates with any decor.

At the top of the speaker is a nifty silicon handle that adds significant convenience, making moving the almost 1 kg heavy device around a breeze. You can even use the handle to hang the speaker on a hook if you’re looking to save space or position it in a particular area.

The top part of the Tribit StormBox Pro is home to three large buttons — volume up, volume down, and a multi-function button sandwiched between them. Below them are three additional buttons: a Bluetooth pairing button, the power button, and the XBass button. This last one, the XBass button, gives you the option to crank up the bass and really feel your music if you’re in the mood. Finally, a row of five small LED indicator lights keeps you informed about the battery power left.

Sporting an IP67 rating, this speaker can handle being submerged in water up to a meter for about 30 minutes. But even if it does take an unintended dive into your pool, you don’t need to mount a rescue mission. It floats! The StormBox Pro won’t be taking a trip to the bottom of any water body any time soon.

Sound Quality

Equipped with two 1.6-inch tweeters and a down-firing 3.1-inch speaker, this petite powerhouse delivers a maximum output of 40 watts — plenty to fill even a larger room with music. Do you want even more power? Then you can connect two Tribit StormBox Pro portable speakers together to form a pair.

But what about the actual sound? After all, that’s what matters the most. Well, the StormBox Pro delivers in spades here — not in small part thanks to its use of Bluetooth 5.0 and support for SBC and AptX Bluetooth codecs, which ensure ultra-low latency while minimizing compression-related distortion.

The 360-degree sound coming from the StormBox Pro is well-balanced, but it’s not perfect. You might encounter some distortion at top volumes, and you might also find its bass response to be somewhat tame. Fortunately, there’s the XBass button we’ve already mentioned, and it can deliver a punchier listening experience with a single press. The lack of user-adjustable EQ settings might be a letdown for some, but you can always adjust the volume of different frequency bands on your phone.

The StormBox Pro also has the ability to pair with up to eight devices simultaneously. And here’s the real kicker — it can stay connected to two devices at the same time! Though you can only play music from one of these devices at any given moment, this multi-point Bluetooth pairing allows you to effortlessly switch between your chosen devices.

The speaker also includes a built-in microphone, opening up the option to use it as a speakerphone. Don’t expect the microphone to be outstanding, but it’s more than capable of handling your average calls, which is a decent add-on feature considering this is primarily an audio playback device.

Battery Life

In a world where our gadgets are our lifelines, we’ve all felt the anxiety of a dying battery. That’s why it’s refreshing to come across a device that takes battery life seriously. Indeed, the Tribit StormBox Pro is just such a device. It houses a monster 10,000 mAh battery (technically two 5,000 mAh batteries), guaranteeing you up to 20 hours of rocking out to your favorite tunes.

This is no small feat for a portable speaker. Whether you’re planning a day at the beach, a backyard barbecue, or an all-night gaming session, the StormBox Pro won’t call it quits before you do. Just don’t forget to charge the device the night before because it takes up to 7 hours to refill the juice via a USB Type-C charging port.

There’s also a full-sized USB connector that enables the speaker to double up as a powerbank. What that means is that you can use the Tribit StormBox Pro to give your other devices a quick power boost. This feature is especially handy during long outdoor trips or power outages when access to an electrical outlet is limited.

Desklab 4K Monitor Review: The Best Portable Monitor

While traditional monitors don’t exactly fit in the average backpack, an ultralight portable monitor like the Desklab 4K does.



desklab 4k monitor review best portable monitor

These days, work happens anywhere — from traditional offices to coworking spaces to coffee shops and airport lounges.

The only problem is that not all places where work can happen are equally equipped to support the needs of modern white-collar workers. Laptops and smartphones largely solve this issue, but their smaller screens make them less than ideal for certain tasks, such as juggling data between two spreadsheets.

While traditional monitors don’t exactly fit in the average backpack, an ultralight portable monitor like the Desklab 4K does, and remote workers are not the only group of users who can benefit from it.

The Desklab 4K is a 15-inch large portable touchscreen monitor that weighs just 1.3 pounds (725 grams) and is slimmer than the iPad mini (0.23 inches versus 0.35 inches or 6 mm versus almost 9 mm).

On the left side, there’s a power button, control wheel, and microUSB port. The right side is where you can find a 3.5 mm port, two USB Type-C ports, and a single HDMI port.

The monitor has an integrated magnetic stand that doubles as a cover when flipped around. The stand works as advertised, allowing you to use the monitor in portable and landscape mode, but it does feel considerably cheaper than the monitor itself.

Even though portability is the main selling point of this monitor, there’s actually no battery inside the compact case. That’s because the monitor is so power-efficient that it can be powered directly by the laptop or smartphone it’s connected to.

That’s good because you don’t have to worry about charging it before use, but it also means that the battery inside the device you connect the monitor to will last much longer.

The only time when the monitor does require its own dedicated source of power is when you connect it using an HDMI cable instead of via USB Type-C, so keep that in mind if that’s how you want to use it.

Image Quality

The first thing we noticed when we turned on the monitor for the first time was its sharpness. Thanks to its 4K resolution, text is perfectly smooth even when set to a small size, and the smoothness makes it easy to use the monitor for a long time without any eye fatigue.

In addition to being sharp, the monitor is also very bright. At 400 nits, it’s just as sharp as the latest MacBook Air, so using the monitor outside isn’t a problem.

If you’re into photography or graphic design, then you’ll be pleased to know that the monitor is fairly color-accurate. Sure, it’s no match for professional monitors, but its true LED backlight technology really does help with color reproduction.

Since the Desklab 4K monitor is compatible with Nintendo Switch, Xbox, PS4, and other popular video game consoles, we should also mention that the monitor has a lightning-fast 10 millisecond response time, so even fast-twitch gaming is a pleasure.

Of course, gaming on this monitor would be even more pleasurable if it supported ultra-high refresh rates, but that would make it far less efficient in terms of energy consumption. Fortunately, it does support low-flicker technology for increased comfort when using the monitor at lower brightness levels.

Because the Desklab 4K monitor is equipped with both USB Type-C and HDMI video inputs, you can use it with basically any device that can output 4K video.

Lower resolutions are supported as well, but image quality, and sharpness in particular, goes down considerably with them. If you want to use the monitor primary with a device that can output only 1080p video, then you should consider getting the 1080p model.

As far as setup goes, there’s really nothing to set up because the monitor doesn’t require any additional software and is designed to work as soon as you plug it in.

The Desklab 4K has a touch layer that allows you to navigate with your finger and use familiar gestures, like tap, drag, pinch, zoom, scroll, or spin. The touch layer works great even when the monitor is connected to a MacBook, which is a pleasant surprise considering that Apple has yet to release a Mac with touch support.

Our Verdict

desklab monitor review verdict

Overall, the Desklab 4K is an excellent portable monitor that’s well worth its price of $399.00. Unlike other similar monitors that you can find online for less money, the Desklab 4K is bright enough to be usable outside, and it does have plenty of other features that make it suitable for regular use.

The two things we don’t like the most about this monitor (the poorly designed on-screen menu and the flimsy stand) could certainly be improved, but they’re definitely not huge issues that would make you regret your purchase. You can get your Desklab 4K portable monitor directly from the company on their official website.
