PROs and CONs of DOSS SOUNDBOX XL
What People Say of DOSS SOUNDBOX XL
Overall, the most commended feature is the outstanding bass qualities that this DOSS model has. The subwoofer functions amazingly well – for some it was almost too much bass – and it gives a nice, full listening experience. There were many more positive reviews than negative ones and among these, other features that were praised included: the professional finish which gives this speaker a high-end look; the quality of the Bluetooth connectivity; and the ability to play via an Aux cable (especially for MP3 players), a TF Card and via Bluetooth.
There were a few things that customer reviews cautioned potential buyers to keep in mind. Most of them were not performance related. However, one of the main comments was that the speaker performs best if, once received, the front grill is taken off and the paper sheet that lies behind it is removed to prevent buzzing. Reattaching the grill will immediately improve the listening experience and work to prevent any noises that would result from the subwoofer vibrations. The other comment that was consistent throughout reviews is that the bass is so strong the speaker will move around quite a lot despite the rubber feet. Some customers built a custom stand to keep the speaker in space and prevent it from falling off of furniture.
The DOSS SoundBox XL offers everything and then some when it comes to a portable speaker. This model is an extra appealing choice for parties since it has strong Bluetooth capabilities, a long battery life, a long Bluetooth range, and can play from an aux cable, and TF card in addition to the standard Bluetooth. While it may not be recommended for water and is a little too large to throw in a backpack for traveling, this DOSS model works for both in-house and office use.
