Excerpt: There’s a lot more to say about this speaker, but in summary, Sound Kick is a surprisingly big deal for such a small, affordable speaker, delivering build quality, multi-device compatibility, and features that would have been unthinkable back in iTrek’s day—or even last year. Made from a mix of black metal and hard plastic, the enclosure feels even more like a solid brick than the $200 Jambox, without compromising at all on fashion-forward style.
Summary: The Soundfreaq Sound Kick portable Bluetooth speaker is a good value, with an attractive design and good performance for its size.
Pros: The Soundfreaq Sound Kick SFQ-04 is a compact, attractively designed portable Bluetooth speaker that sounds decent and plays loud for its size. It has a built-in rechargeable battery that delivers 7 hours of play time, and a USB port for charging smartphones and portable devices.
Cons: The speaker's sound is a little thin, and there isn't a speakerphone capability. Its retractable Xkick bass chamber converts into a stand that's nifty but a little wobbly. While portable, the Sound Kick is bigger than some other small Bluetooth speakers in the same price range.
