There is an inherent tension between sound quality and price, which is why we always joke about running into speakers and headphones that punch well above their weight. Portable Bluetooth speakers are a great example: below a fixed price, you get mediocre sound quality fitted out of the housing with a cheap housing. This is not true of the DOS Soundbox Touch, a solid Bluetooth speaker that sounds surprisingly good for its $ 28 list price. And today only, you can get.
The Soundbox Touch is a much less portable speaker – it is powered by a 12-watt amp and gives around 20 hours of playtime. It is solidly built with an aluminum housing, and the illuminated touch controls at the top give the speaker a premium feel. Even the volume is controlled with a touch-sensitive virtual dial, so it does not have separate moving parts with an on-off button on the back. Apart from Bluetooth, it also has a microSD slot. If you’re a USB-C fan, this is a minor disappointment: the speaker recharges through the old micro-USB.
They are not everything. You can do this– DOSS has a group of speakers and earbuds on sale today, but it is only today, so time is of the essence.
