Soundmatters FoxL v2 (black)
15 December 2011
Summary: The Soundmatters FoxL v2 Bluetooth portable speaker offers excellent sound in a compact candy-bar design and has the added benefit of phone conferencing using the built-in speakerphone. Despite its lofty price tag, the FoxL v2 is a simple, worthwhile device that lets you ditch wires and bring your music anywhere.
Pros: Redesigned internal architecture improves Bluetooth audio quality compared with the first model; tough outer casing can take a beating; proprietary BassBattery delivers impressive low-end response; pairs easily with A2DP Bluetooth audio players.
Excerpt: The Good Small, solidly built. Good sound. Works well as a speakerphone. Can charge via USB. Comes with all the pieces you need. The Bad Somewhat lacking in bass. Power switch is hard to use. For the past few months, I've been using the FoxLv2 Bluetooth speaker from SoundMatters for listening to music and as a speakerphone with my iPhone 3G.
Pros: Small, solidly built., Good sound., Works well as a speakerphone., Can charge via USB., Comes with all the pieces you need.
Cons: Somewhat lacking in bass., Power switch is hard to use.
Conclusion: This small, wireless speaker you can use with your phone or media player pumps out some solid bass for its size, but the Soundmatters Foxl v2 Bluetooth isn't a good-enough speakerphone to be worth its $200 price tag.
Pros: Very small. Decent music sound quality and bass response for its size.
Soundmatters FoxL Personal Audiophile Loudspeaker Review
22 May 2011
Excerpt: One of the benefits of doing gadget reviews is coming across a product that is so cool, so unexpected, and so jaw-dropping that it’s almost magical. When you first see the small Soundmatters FoxL speaker, you might think it could work as a personal speaker. When you first hold the foxL and feel its heft, you may even think that it’s pretty well built … for a small speaker, anyway.
Pros: Seems to bend the laws of physics, Fun to impress friends with its audio, Small and portable, Well built, Easy to set up and use
Cons: Expensive, Quirky design issues, Bluetooth compromises the audio, iPhone did not initially want to connect
Excerpt: The left and right side are distinguished by two 4W speakers (coined twoofers, the lovechild of a tweeter and woofer) which pump sound right up to 97 decibels. To help materialise the dry figure, sound becomes painful when it breaches 120 decibels.
Pros: Small size; Good low-end sound; good connectivity;
Excerpt: Getting great sound out of a small package is one of the holy grails of the tech world. Over the years we’ve reviewed any number of small speaker systems and, while some have come close, none have been excellent.
Pros: Amazing sound for the size; excellent build quality; easy to use
