03 Jan 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).
