Tribit StormBox Micro: Compact in size and Powerful in Sound!


A Tribit StormBox Micro demonstrates that being compact and portable isn’t always the top item in a Bluetooth speaker. It’s also affordable: at only $50, this could be a perfect option for someone on a tight budget who wants to enhance their phone speakers.

It’s not exactly packed with goodies as a result of being both compact and inexpensive. However, Tribit StormBox Micro will show, they aren’t necessary: this is one of the best affordable Bluetooth speakers on the marketplace.

Price and availability

Tribit StormBox Micro: Price and availability

A Tribit StormBox Micro is among the most affordable Bluetooth speakers on the market or at least one of the most affordable good ones. It costs $50 and comes in two colorways: black and orange.



The Tribit StormBox Micro, which measures 3.9 x 3.9 x 1.4 inches, isn’t the tiniest Bluetooth speaker on the market, but it’s adequate. It’s comparable to the JBL Clip 3’s dimensions of 5.4 x 3.8 x 1.8 inches. It’s also light enough to throw in your bag without weighing it down, at only 0.6 pounds.

The item, which comes in black and orange, does not feel or look cheap. The square speaker’s top is made of mesh, whereas the back is made of durable plastic. The rear has a plastic strap that may be unhooked and looped around backpack straps or a bike.

On the front of the speaker are volume controls as well as a multifunction button that, among other things, can play/pause tunes, skip tracks, and activate Siri. Its power button, battery indicator, and Bluetooth pairing button are all located on the bottom. Charge the battery via a USB-C connector on the right side.

The StormBox Micro, unlike the Clip 3, does not include an auxiliary input – it’s WiFi or nothing with all of this device.


Tribit StormBox Micro: Performance

Don’t be fooled by its diminutive size: the Tribit StormBox Micro produces excellent sound for a speaker of this size. It has particularly strong bass, which few mini Bluetooth speakers — such as the Clip 3 — can match. It also has a surprisingly broad sound spread for a little speaker. The StormBox Micro, on the other hand, does not have the same bright tone as the Clip 3.

On “the last great American dynasty,” Taylor Swift’s vocal was clear, and the bass was heavy, yet the keyboards lacked definition. On “Shameika,” Fiona Apple’s singing sounded powerful, and the small speaker carried the variety of instruments effectively. The bass and vocals on Jason Isbell’s “What’ve I Done to Help” sounded lush, yet the chord’s acoustic guitars didn’t come through as clearly as they do on larger speakers.

A Tribit StormBox Micro has good power – at full volume, at around 90 dB. However, when you increase the volume, it becomes distorted. It works best when the loudness is reduced to 50% or less – about 75 to 80 dB.


Tribit StormBox Micro: Ruggedness

The Tribit StormBox Micro has an IP67 designation, which means it can survive both water & dust. Water can spray on it, but it should not submerge.


Battery life

On a full charge, the Tribit StormBox Micro will play for up to eight hours. That’s any less than some portable Bluetooth speakers; the Clip 3, for example, has 10-hour battery life. The StormBox Micro has roughly 2/5ths of its energy left after listening for further than 5 hours on low volume, indicating that the company’s estimate of 8 hours is very accurate.

Tribit StormBox Micro: Wireless and Setup

Tribit StormBox Micro: Wireless and Setup

The Tribit StormBox Micro was simple to pair with the phone & maintained a good connection indoors from a distance of 100 feet. It can link to two devices at the same time, allowing you to simply switch between them.

The speaker doesn’t have an app and doesn’t have any sound modes, so the sound is what it is.

Two StormBox Micros can link together to spread the sound farther, either by mirroring the music or by acting as left/right stereo sound.


This Tribit StormBox Micro is a superb value for money, as well as its small size, makes it ideal for on-the-go listening. It creates a sound that is larger than you might anticipate and has outstanding bass. While the sound isn’t as detailed as the JBL Clip 3, it sounds better overall. If you want something that sounds even better, you’ll have to pay more and sacrifice space; it’s Ultimate Ears Wonderboom 2 is deeper & richer overall, but it’s also somewhat larger and more expensive.

The StormBox Micro is a simple portable Bluetooth speaker with few bells and whistles that is inexpensive, easy to carry around, and sounds terrific. And, on occasion, that’s exactly what you’re looking for.
