Philips SB8600 / 10 Portable / Wireless Shoqbox XL speakers with Bluetooth and NFC technology dark gray (Personal Computers)

Customer Review

After unpacking, I was surprised at first, because the Philips SB8600 Shoqbox heavier but also less than expected. The processing makes a very good impression, although the medium gray color does not look quite so high in my eyes. In addition to the power supply with two adapters included in the pack and the shoulder strap and manual. The latter annoys by its folding mechanism and representation in dozens of languages, very cumbersome and impractical. Luckily you but really do not need it.

So battery is charged and then quickly for the first hearing test. As a source I used my tablet, the coupling via Bluetooth worked well and fast, but Philips have omitted still not a annoying beep-beep "sound after successful coupling. This has already annoyed at my dock, especially since the sound can not be deactivated . The sound then compensated however for the inconvenience ". In indoor mode, everything is very clear and rich in the bass, but very balanced and pleasant, not annoying or overdone. In outdoor mode, the focus is placed on the maximum volume, which I do not necessarily need the same room and have therefore not been adequately tested. But the summer is approaching, and then I'll take a closer look. Overall, it noted that the digital sound processing and the bass reflex speakers work well together and the Bluetooth (aptX and AAC) -Hi-Fi streaming music has a positive effect on the sound.

The battery lasts a relatively long time, the specified 8 hours I think is realistic. Normally, a charge should be enough slack at least for a day. Also very nice is the audio-in (3.5 mm) input, via a iPod or other device without Bluetooth interface can be connected quickly. The integrated USB interface enables a smart phone or similar charge. Also, a link via NFC is possible has not been tried yet but by me. Positive I would also note that the Shoqbox noted four Bluetooth devices and a coupling takes place faster. About the built-in microphone incoming phone calls can be accepted, if the smartphone is just coupled. The music stops automatically and runs after completing the telephone back on.

The Shoqbox convinces with very good sound and a quality finish. The tonal adjustment for indoor and outdoor year-round use possibility exists. By USB charging option the connected source can be easily recharged during operation. As annoying I feel the feedback signal and the confusing manual. The latter is not so bad, the beep-beep "But already, so I disconnect also a star and thus give 4 stars.
