Analog Planet Review: Soundmatters’ “Moment” Is A Mini Bluetooth Speaker Sensation

True that Bluetooth speakers are not AnalogPlanet’s beat, but over the past few years I’ve found these devices super-useful for when I jog, or when traveling or just sitting outside during the summer. Longtime AnalogPlanet readers know that for large box Bluetooth speakers I like the ones from Riva Audio, but even the smaller of the two is too large for taking on a jog or a hike. For that I’ve used the Soundmatters FoxL , which is a flat-out amazing sounding tiny stereo speaker that uses as a “passive radiator” its flat battery encased in a rubber surround.

The FoxL is small enough to be carried on a jog but the new Moment from Soundmatters makes a better fit for a shirt pocket and is easier to grip in one’s hand. It’s also in a carbon fiber infused case that’s more impervious to damage. Though it doesn’t have the FoxL’s exterior “passive radiator”, something inside the thing has a seemingly large excursion that produces if not bass as deep, bass that’s equally satisfying (as long as you’re not expecting the impossible).

    Have you had an opportunity to listen to the Bill Evans Black Forest recording?

      We will try it out. Moment, you’ll find, does a fantastic job
      at playing acoustic music, specifically jazz.

    The Moment is a truly exceptional speaker for its size. You can read my review of it at: http://www.devicesquad.co.uk
