Moment is the newest ultra-portable audiophile speaker by Soundmatters, engineered to achieve a new level of ultra-portability and near-field sonic fidelity, along with wireless charging.

Moment is unique: It was not created to fill a large room…nor impress with sheer loudness (high SPL), but to fill you and your personal listening space with a natural and enveloping soundstage.

Soundmatters calibrated the Bluetooth, patented carbon-poly acoustic driver performance, and carbon-fiber infused body to optimize Moment for near-field listening (1–5 ft). The result provides listeners ultra-precise, wide-frequency sound, with remarkably clear detailing as well as deep dynamics, all from a shockingly small, shirt pocket-sized music system.

Moment features Energizer® Wireless Charging technology. Moment’s magnetic back simply snaps to the optional charging stand (included free during the holidays), for convenient and quick charging––taking 2-3 hours to fully charge a depleted battery. The stand angles Moment toward the listener, making it the perfect listening setup for a desktop, table, or workspace.

Note: Charge Moment initially using the provided USB cable before using the stand for charging.

    Very pleased with the sound and size of this new speaker. I have a couple of your other speakers and I think this one is one of your best so far. The charging stand is nice addition. Anyone looking for a compact speaker should give this one a try. You will not be disappointed.

    I just purchased the Moment to go along with my iMac. It sounds great and the stand/charger is a perfect fit.

    Perfect portable speaker. I use it for travel and now office. Good battery life and amazing sound for the size.. If it weren’t for the price, I’d buy 2.

    When I got word of the small near-pocket-size Soundmatters Mōment, I ordered it right away knowing what I’d be in for, having had the FoxLv2 and Dash7. Although the FoxLv2 is gone now, I distinctly remember the one thing that made it my favorite small speaker, until it was replaced by the Dash7: The FoxLv2 had a natural tonality for music, and given that and the small size, I knew exactly how to place it for best effect – on a desk, table, or nightstand 3-4 feet away. Ditto the Dash7 and this new Mōment speaker.

    While the designs of these three speakers are somewhat different, the applications are similar, however the intended use of the new Mōment is specifically to be in the 3-5 ft listening range for best tonality. When I saw the first announcement for the Mōment, I noted the $169 price and the small size, and wondered whether Soundmatters could really pull it off as a value proposition. I’ll say this much: If you can appreciate how this little speaker is intended to be used, and you give it the customary ‘burn-in’ time of 15-20 hours that’s recommended for headphones and small speakers, you may well be surprised and delighted at the sheer musicality of this little speaker.

    One last thing: I’ve purchased several small Bluetooth speakers over the past few years, and while there are some bargains below $100 out there (and some bad values as well), none of those were designed for natural musical tonality as I hear with the Mōment, although I thought the JBL ‘Charge’ (second or third edition) came a lot closer to that ideal than the others. Nearly all of the medium-priced small Bluetooth speakers are designed to create an illusion of bass ‘thump’ through various acoustic tricks, which pretty much kills their chance of having a natural musical sound.

    Summing up: The Soundmatters Mōment isn’t for everyone, and I don’t mean that as a cliché – it’s a unique design that offers something the other small Bluetooth speakers don’t quite match – good musical tonality in a very small size, with very high physical quality that speaks as well for the brand as does the sound quality. Highly recommended.

    Years ago I bought the original FoxL, both Bluetooth and not … maybe three or four units (they make great gifts for family). Then I bought the FoxLo, a couple of them, to add a bass dimension. Last purchase was a FoxL Dash7 … still my favorite when connected to a FoxLo. Now with the Moment we have a new favorite Bluetooth version. Since my two kids have grown to enjoy your speakers I again took advantage of the Moment to give them as gifts. Everyone is super impressed with its performance. And the convenience of pocket carry it makes a great speaker on the go. And with my new iPhone 7 a good Bluetooth portable speaker is a must … perfect timing on your part! Thanks. And my congratulations to your whole team for a great product.

    So I have Soundmatters speakers in all the important places: my Mac Mini has a FoxL with FoxLo attached, my kitchen has the FoxL DASH7 with FoxLo attached, and now the Moment is with me wherever I go … my nightstand, the bathroom, my workshop, in the car, even when I am out for a walk.

    For special uses I prefer to carry the DASH7 when I go on birdwatching hikes. I think it reproduces high range sounds the best (I use pre-recorded bird sounds to ID birds around me). The Moment has the best full range sound reproduction for music on the go. And when not out birding I use the DASH7 with FOXLo attached at the kitchen table … that’s my favorite all around sound. But for convenience and best sound The Moment wins hands down.

    I was skeptical, but had to give the Moment a try. The claim about “a natural and enveloping soundstage” was particularly enticing. Would this cool looking and very portable speaker come through? And would the cautions about it not filling the room with sound become a turnoff?

    It didn’t take long for my skepticism to turn into “this is exactly the natural sound I’ve been looking for.” It’s detailed and, yes, natural sounding. On the stand, it really does provide a “perfect listening setup for a desktop, table, or workspace,” as claimed. But I would add, having it play across the room in my studio, Moment creates a fine larger soundscape.

    Bluetooth pairing was pretty easy, even with my finicky old Macbook Pro. My iphone and ipad took to the Moment right away.

    These are my impressions based on just a couple hours of use.

    For it’s intended use (near field) it is perfect!
