    100% Pleased With Our Transit

    • Written by from Orillia

    The enjoyment of worldwide radio access with my I-Pad was limited by the internal speaker. Once the decision to acquire an external portable Bluetooth speaker was made the search began. The reviews I read on the Transit were encouraging and were the basis for my decision to purchase. There is not much I can add to all the positive comments made by others. Every single thing about the Transit shouts quality. I listen to it in wonderment that such a gorgeous sound is emanating from such a small speaker. On a side note I had a question regarding charging capability from my notebook USB port. My e-mail to Soen was immediately answered yes. So Customer Service also gets 5 stars.

    Very Open and Detailed Sound, Very Portable, High Quality Speaker

    • Written by from Sunnyvale

    I’ll write this review as I bought Soen Transit after looking at following 3 speakers. The purpose is to share my experience and help you form an informed opinion before buy or try these speakers yourself:

    1. Bose Soundlink Mini
    2. Jawbone Jambox Mini
    3. Soen Transit

    As of writing this review this speaker is rated highly - 4 to 5 stars on Apple, Amazon and CNet. Before you go on and read this review I’ll mention for full-disclosure that I have known some of the team behind Soen Transit from their JBL days and before. That said, I’ll do a fair and true review based on my real experience.

    Sound quality. Both Soen Transit and Bose Soundlink mini shine in terms of sound quality when compared to most speakers their size/price. Jambox Mini seems to be less refined and tinny/noisy in comparison. Jambox Mini also had a hum or a low continuous chrrr… sound that made me wonder about its quality.
    Soen Transit really shines as a speaker with most open and detailed sound, which I haven’t heard yet from speakers this small. It does not distort on high volumes and elegantly equalizes sound unlike most Bluetooth speakers in the market. Bose Soundlink has better bass but the sound seems to be muddier at higher volumes. My preference in this case is Soen Transit as it sounds very open and detailed even when 2-3 persons are talking in a normal home/kitchen/lounge type environment. Bass heavy sound from small speakers drowns really easily unless you are listening in a really quite environment.

    Bluetooth. Soen Transit has elegant muted guitar sounds to convey searching and connected sounds. Bose is also similar. But Jambox Mini has almost a loud toyish blips and tacky sounds when you connect or touch volute keys. You may find these Jambox Mini blips bad enough to remove it from your contention.

    Hands Free/Conference. Both Soen Transit and Jambox Mini can function as a speakerphone, a feature that is surprisingly missing in Bose Soundlink Mini. I found the hands-free feature really convenient when talking to friends or colleagues in a conference setting.

    Build Quality/Portability. Both Soen Transit and Bose Soundlink Mini are well built but I liked Soen Transit due to the book-like feel/formfactor, magnetic cover and kick-stand. If you travel or like to carry it with you to outdoors I’ll recommend Soen Transit. In my opinion it has better design and build quality than the Bose and feels more sophisticated.

    Battery Life. I use Soen Transit for 1-2 hours every other day and charge it after every 4-5 uses. It charges quite fast with the standard slim charger. One cool feature in Soen Transit is the battery remaining indicator on iPhone/iPad without installing any software/app. I was not able to check battery life on the Bose or the Jambox.

    SoenAudio with Transit is going to give Bose a run for their money

    • Written by from New York

    Just purchased this amazing speaker. From Opening the Box. akin to Opening an Apple product, with beautiful, thoughtful design and packing worth it's own review, the Transit speaker was more than I expected. Great Rich Sound from a Small package easily integrated with my 5S, IpadAir and Mac Book Pro. Slick, Sleek and every bit as good as the Bose, and for less money. I am going to purchase a host of these for gifts for friends, whom I know will absolutely love them as much as I have in the short time I have them. The stand works like a precision instrument. You can tell these guys put a great deal of thought, and effort to design this tremendous product. Run don't walk to order these from SoenAudio.

    Soen Bluetooth Speaker

    • Written by from Winnipeg

    I cannot compare this bluetooth speaker to other brand existing today, this a one of a kind handy portable speaker that I have, I have 6 Bluetooth speaker before top of the line and expensive but since I got this Soen Bluetooth speaker I sell all the 6 speaker online. for me this Soen is compact and easy to cary but superb and crispy clear sound. searching for a better sound is ended. For me this its a reasonable price for a perfect sound for your Ipod, PC, or Iphone. Its never too late to try and experience the sound that you want for your relaxing time.

    Transit by Soen - Amazing Performance

    • Written by from Ma On Shan

    I was in the market for a bluetooth speaker and had been researching for some time when a friend introduced Transit to me. I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical initially as the company was unknown to me but am pretty impressed with the product having used it over the past few months.

    The out of box experience was awesome as the packaging has been designed very thoughtfully with careful consideration for placing and protecting the various accessories. Setting up the speaker was very easy and I spent only a few seconds in getting the setup completed with every device that I paired it to.

    The music from the speakers is very rich and the sound clarity is amazing. I have used it in hotel rooms traveling around, at home, at small gatherings and in meeting rooms and have never been disappointed with the quality. Actually have had a few friends complement the sound quality of the speaker.

    I like the shape of this speaker as it sits on a table and due to its natural angle the sound emanates and actually fills the room completely. The no-frill controls are very good and easy to understand and operate. The small pop-up stand on the back and the metallic controls on the sides provide a very nice accent to the product outlook, the contrast of black and chrome actually highlight these very well.

    Overall I am very impressed with the product and would definitely recommend as a must-buy for people who are looking to buy a compact bluetooth speaker.

    Fantastic Bluetooth speaker, small but packs a punch !

    • Written by from tampa

    Right from the time the package arrived, to the set up and use of the sound system, the experience was impressive. The sound quality is un-beatable ! They took care of every detail in the design and manufacturing. the aluminum parts are heavy duty and elegant, the magnetic cover was very thoughtful. Even the charger is a piece of art !

    The ease of operation is what impressed me the most. It is not cluttered with excessive buttons, very simple and elegantly designed. great job guys !

    OMG! Tone and Clarity

    • Written by from Anacortes

    I recently purchased a Stanwood Marshall Bluetooth for my home at $400. More recently, I purchased the Transit. I should have waited. The Transit out performs the highly rated Stanwood. If I had purchased the Transit first, guess what? I would not have needed the Stanwood. Have no fear when you click on the "buy" button. You will be happy. One more thing, I love that you can battery charge and use at the same time.

    Modern elegant design, great sound, light weight. Perfect gift.

    • Written by from San Diego

    Everyone who walks into my office, the first thing they notice it's the amazing sound and elegant and modern look of Transit. It has been quite interesting and a great enhancement to my office, since every business conversation that I have had in my office since December, when I purchased it, has revolved around it. Transit by Soen is Practical, wireless, modern design, light weight, and a great presentation as a gift. Everything since the moment that you get the box just tells you that this company that invented TRANSIT it's detailed oriented, The battery last four hours usually, sometimes longer, has a great clear sound, compatible with Samsung and Iphones, Tablets, etc.
    I enjoy it so much and find it to be great gift.

    Unbelievable sound quality

    • Written by from Hong Kong

    I bought my TRANSIT online. Not only the appearance is great but the sound quality is just awesome.
    It is so easy to connect over bluetooth and has great features.
    My apple device (iphone/ipad) shows its battery status so I never get a surprise when i want to listen to my favourite music.
    I can't see it at display at the Apple Hong Kong store (although they do have it in stock) and wish they can put one for demo so others can also feel and compare this great product.
    It is sleek and elegant and i take it with me wherever I go. Congratulations to Soen for this great product.

    One of the Best!

    • Written by from Logan Lake

    I just received this little speaker, and pretty much everything I have read (and heard!) is true. Elegant but solid, great sound - the highs and mids are crisp and clean and the bass is very good. The Bluetooth connection was solid - wandered all over the house (a good 50 - 75 feet away from the unit) and didn't drop the connection! Hands-free option works like a charm - clear audio in both directions. The one thing I did notice is that at full volume there is a wee bit of distortion as the bass (if it's on the heavy side) tends to push back the higher end tones, but other than that I love this. I also have a Bose mini and although it doesn't quite have the volume or carry the bass as well, the rest of the features and build keep it a 5-star in my book and have the Bose looking over it's shoulder! ;) The sound is great, the build & design are superb... It is definitely top-drawer!! You won't be sorry.

    LOVE IT!!!

    • Written by from Moorpark

    As a college student I was first drawn to the trendy and over-advertised/ endoresed beats pill portable speaker. However for the same price the TRANSIT surpassed the quality by far. It is super easy and portable with a great battery life and is a great buy for someone who wants big high quality sound in a limited space. It has the sleek modern design I was looking for and would expect for the price and is fun and easy to use. I use it inside and outside and because of its size and shape it easily fits in my purse, backpack and laptop case. I love that I don't have to worry about always having an aux cord on hand. Also I watch most of my TV and movies on my Macbook and I never realized how much of a difference it made to my movie watching experience to have great sound. Whats the point of 17 inch top of the line display and blue ray quality picture if it doesn't sound amazing too? I highly recommend the TRANSIT, especially to those shopping in the same price range that are considering trendier products, this speaker gives you way more BOOM for your buck!

    For classical music, delightful!!

    • Written by from Houston

    My husband gave the speaker to me for Christmas. I absolutely love it, so small I can take it with me anywhere. When playing classical music the purity of sound brings the best of the recordings. I can play loud and it never looses the quality of sound!! Best gift ever!!

    The best speaker we own!

    • Written by from Katy

    My wife purchased The Transit as a Christmas gift and I am so glad she did. Quality sound, easy to use and multi-functional. We had been pricing Bose, but The Transit is MORE SPEAKER for less money. I'm impressed.
    It's light weight and compact while not loosing any sturdiness.

    Can't beat quality sound

    • Written by from Northridge

    I love smart and elegant products that make life easier. TRANSIT delivers on this promise. Beautifully designed, it's covered in a high quality velvety material that sets it apart from similar products in the market. The Bluetooth connection is easy to figure out and has a pretty decent range (mine works up to 25 feet away from iPhone when indoors). The sound is outstanding, can't beat the bass this little speaker has. The sound is so powerful that inundates our house, no need to bother any longer with complicated sound systems. And I can't get enough the portability! Reason number one for us getting a TRANSIT. We take it everywhere: hotel rooms, airport terminals, backyard playdates, hiking trails, and the list goes on. All the stuff you will need to charge it is in the box, including power adaptors for 220v. There are many portable speakers out there today, I have yet to come across one that looks, feels and sounds like this little guy.

    Can't travel without it!

    • Written by from Westlake Village

    Traveling and working off site is a lot easier with a Transit. Since I bought my first one I won't travel with out it. I love the elegant look and feel of it and the sound quality is awesome whether you are relaxing to music or making a conference call. Bluetooth connection is easy and effortless. The charger is compact and it charges quickly. I wish the battery lasts longer than my Jambox and the sound is a lot clearer and richer. I have a hard time thinking anyone puts more miles on their Transit than I do. My day starts with my transit as i get ready and ends with music next to my bed as i go to sleep. I love to auto shut off feature after its been inactive for a few minutes. I hate to admit that I have also dropped mine a couple of times with no sound and quality degradation. Don't drop yours but of you do you'll know it will still work great. I recommend Transit for you as well as a gift to friends and co-workers. You'll love it.

    Really Cool

    • Written by from Pasadena

    From my perspective, these guys got it right. What it does MUCH better than other speakers of similar size:

    1. All of these things have to have some kind of a limiter to keep the speakers from sounding terrible at high volume. In most other models, the limiter is audible and annoying. Nothing's worse than a crescendo that's turned into a pianissimo by some poorly designed algorithm. The limiter in the Transit is nearly inaudible and music retains the interest that is intended in the dynamics.

    2. With a little box and small speakers, a bass reflex (ported) design is critical. Too many of these small speakers make no bass because the boxes are sealed. The port in the SOEN design is really cool and works beautifully. The bass from this little thing is MUCH better and extends lower than any other speaker I've heard that's a similar size.


    I love my transit. These guys are experts.

    Trust the reviews (because they're right)

    • Written by from RICHMOND

    I invested a considerable time shopping for a compact bluetooth speaker and although I held and heard the more popular models including Beats, Bose, and Jambox, I trusted the reviews for TRANSIT by Soen and made a blind purchase.

    This really is a top notch, super cool, super sounding speaker. The nearest competition is Bose and even they fall way behind the TRANSIT by Soen. Take my word for it, the sound quality and design of this little device will surprise and delight the heck out of you. I haven't been this happy with a toy since I first held an iPad, can't wait to take it to the beach.
