On Amazon, there are some of the popular portable speakers such as Cambridge Soundworks Wireless Bluetooth Speaker and Aomais waterproof sport ll are well worth to pay your attention at, and if you’re fond of bringing music outdoor.
But to make music sharing in groups into the next level, here is what Trippy can do.
Trippy: Wireless speaker with Place and Play™ technology

The vibrations are detected by 4 induction sensors for maximal performance. Show off your music taste while being social and active!

Cons – What’s bad?
The concept is good, but the actual performance of the speaker might be affected by environment noises. Since this portable speaker is designed to play at outdoor, this problem can’t be neglected.
Another problem here is the uni-directional music output. The speaker streams the sound waves on a single direction output, in nature of this technology, which is not a good idea for those at the back.
Expensive — With the price tag of $73, Trippy is not very well worth as there are some of the speakers in the market have better performance but cost third the price, such as this portable speaker by Anker. Nonetheless, you also bought the cool technology.
Volume control — You can’t control the volume on the device, but only on your cell phone instead. Based on the size of the chamber, there’s always a limit on the volume you can play in proportion to the chamber’s size.
Battery capacity — Trippy has a battery that lasts up to 8 hour, which is good for normal use. However, there are portable speakers in the market already offering up to 50 hours of playtime, Minirig Bluetooth Speaker for example. Therefore, Trippy team is currently working on the battery issue so that to increase the capacity up to 20 hours.
