We also have stopped listening to traditional CD's and rely more on digital music. We have a Zune, an iPod Touch, and an iPhone, all of which are capable of holding music files. The problem is, the sound on these devices is lacking, to say the least, and if the whole family is trying to rock out together, they just don't cut it. Unless you have a docking station that produces killer sound, that is.
That's why I was thrilled to receive the Soundfreaq Sound Kick for review. First of all, Soundfreaq is well known for high quality, affordable products that offer superior sound. The Sound Kick is no exception, and really offers a lot of bang for your buck.
The Sound Kick is also highly portable, so you can take your music with you wherever you go without any hassle or lugging bulky, often heavy equipment. This device is rather compact and even features an XKICK chamber that closes for easy transport. When you want a full sound experience, it opens back up easily.
But I think one of my favorite features of the Sound Kick is the fact that it acts as a charging station for mobile devices. Charge your phone or mobile device with Sound Kick’s universal USB power port even if it’s running on battery power. This option has come in handy more than once in my home!
Okay...Great features aside...I know the most important thing is the quality of sound this portable speaker puts out. Well, let me tell you, we were pleasantly surprised. For a small-ish device, this baby has amazing sound quality, and it amplifies very, very well. We have a HUGE family room. It's 24x28, to be exact. We set the Sound Kick up in our kitchen and were able to enjoy music from the far side of our massive family room.
For example, my husband is a HUGE Rush fan. This, as many music lovers know, is truly a musician's band. Even though Getty Lee's vocals make me cringe like nails on a blackboard. As atrocious as Rush's vocals are, their instrumental accompaniments are complex, deep, and highly technical. The Soundfreaq Sound Kick played all of the intricacies of Rush's 2112 album without a hitch. I was able to hear and differentiate every single instrument, clear as day. For those who choose their speakers based on how they handle some good, thumping bass, the Sound Kick sounded great while playing Eminem, Lil Wayne, and Cypress Hill as well. (Hey, I did say we listen to everything, right?)
Overall, we love our Sound Kick. This is one powerful unit, and it's compatible with so many popular devices. This would make a fantastic Holiday gift for all of the die-hard music lovers on your gift list this year!
