The Foxl caught my attention only by chance, i would have never considered it, as the company Soundmatters is not really known here in Europe, neither any of my friends has heard about it before. But after seeing it mentioned side-by-side with such brands as Geneva Labs in an user-review and later on reading some further reviews about the Foxl, i thought this little gem should be worth a try so i ordered one "blindly" without having listened to it before. I felt a little bit crazy having just ordered a tiny speaker for more or less 200 bucks, but the more i read about it, the more curious i got. I already own lots of portable speakers, some bigger ones, but also small pocketable ones like Altec Lansing Orbit, or X-Mini, etc. Having heard really many many different speakers, especially little ones in 99,9% cases sound like cr..... For example I was quite disappointed with the Altec Lansing Orbit, as all reviewers praise it to heaven for its good sound, or the higly regarded JBL on tour series just sound mediocre especially when run from batteries. Meanwhile i started to take most reviews with a grain of salt if they claim unbelievable bass, perfect sound etc... because in most cases this is just bullsh....! The most popular phrase is "good bass for its size". What does it mean? Does is have bass at all, or only if you consider the size? Therefore I was not sure if all the enthusiasm about Foxl was justified or if it was only hype. People tend to like their producs even if the products are nothing special. But when the Foxl finally arrived WOW was i impressed after having played the first tunes.

This little thingy really produces "sound beyond size", not only it does sound good, but impressive.

Verified Purchase
I've had my toy for a few days now. The sound is fantastic, really good. It surprising to find such a good sound coming from such a compact form.

Many people have discussed the multitude of good points, I will state my disappointments.

Its not quiet when turned down. In a very quiet room it makes some electric whining noises and hissing that do not go away when you turn down the volume. If you were sleeping in the same room as them you would want to turn it off. This isn't noticeable when its actively playing music at any volume greater than a whisper. I assume that the bluetooth radio isn't sufficiently shield from the internal amp. Certainly if you bring your phone too close to the device it picks up on the GSM signal.

My other disappointment is I have grown used to media controls on my bluetooth headphones and this device should have an LED telling you the track name and a forward / back / pause / play buttons across the top.

Overall I'm very pleased with the device, it is almost perfect bar the issues mentioned above. Watching movies on my laptop is a more compelling experience and the Zune service on my windows phone piped through the device is brilliant. Yet for the money that I've paid I expect a lot and I think that the device comes up short hence the 4 stars, not 5.

This has great sound for the size, but it does lack detailed trebles and deep bass and can be frustrating to use.

Bearing in mind the variety of stereos and hifi speakers you can buy for £160, this is no small amount of money, so I am reviewing this relative to it's price. The Wowee for example at £50 isn't too different in sound and can produce better bass.

Good points
=======
+ Good sound generally.
+ Very small.
+ Great for travelling.
+ Looks good.
+ Comes with different country adaptor plates for the power supply.

Bad points
======
- Rattles and distorts at loud volume, and turning it down to compensate can make it too quiet.
- The stand is flimsy as well as fiddly to open and often comes off, needing to be clipped in.
- The power socket is exactly the same size and shape as the audio input, not the best design. Meaning the need for a sticker on the device to make this obvious when using it.
- Chunky and cheap looking power supply.
- The sound isn't much louder when plugged in than on battery usage, despite big claims by the manufacturer, I personally don't like over-eager claims to make you buy things then to only leave you disappointed.
- A sliding power switch means you have to remember to turn the thing off or risk coming back to a dead speaker - I've been frustrated many times. These days one might expect a push button power, with an auto switch-off upon no signal after a long time.
- You can only connect one bluetooth device at a time, which if you're with friends you may want to take it in turn to choose songs from each others phones. To do this you need to use an audio cable, making the bluetooth redundant in this scenario.

I purchased a Wowee One a few months ago, and while the bass was jawdroppingly full, the midrange and treble performance was like listening to a portable radio - OK, but not Hi Fi.

So when I read the Foxl2 reviews, with a 30 day money back guarantee I gave it a go.

The Foxl2 synced quickly and easily with my iPhone4. Most other reviews comment on the slight dip in Blue Tooth quality, and the lower maximum volume (95db) on battery compared to using the mains adaptor (97db). In everyday listening there is little between Blue Tooth/line in and mains or battery for volume or quality. Mains powered, using the line in gives the best and loudest sounds (before distortion sets in).

The Foxl2 did benefit from a little running in and a full charge to sound at it's best. I'd suggest a 4-5 hour charge and 1 hour of running at volume to then hear it at it's best.

The Foxl2 has surprisingly good midrange and treble and reasonable bass... for it's very small stature.

So, I connected my Wowee One to the subwoofer output of my Foxl2, after a little experimentation and settling on the Bass Reducer EQ for the iPhone4, the results were amazing.

Great bass, midrange and treble by any portable or boom-box standard.

Neither are Party Animals, but perfectly capable as travel Hi-Fi or for background listening. They will distort at maximum volume... and that would be missing the point, at reasonable volume this portable if expensive combination is wonderful.

I did experience intermittent buzzing, however, at reasonable volume levels the combination of the devices is simply magical.

I won't be needing the 30 day money back guarantee and both units appear built to last a long time.

A great talking point with friends and permanent travel buddies.
