    Transit has rare combination of brains, beauty body and mind !!

    • Written by from Caroline Springs

    Excellent product as a package when considered on the whole. Frankly was a bit reluctant initially to spend my money on a brand which is not popular "yet". Had spent some time listening to both Transit and the Bose Soundlink Mini on display. Frankly Bose was my "first" choice initially but liked Transit in all respects after testing. Was a bit reluctant initially as I hadn't heard much about Transit or Soen Audio. Bose Soundlink Mini is pretty good but Transit is even better in terms of sound quality and form factor in my view. The music sounds "more realistic" in my view. I think if I hadn't listened and had a feel of the product on display, I would have settled for Bose Soundlink Mini. I am glad I did !

    Very happy with the sound clarity and amazing sound levels for its footprint. Frankly did not expect it to fill in with my study which is about 15 ft x 15 ft. Obviously the best set up is within close range from the Transit. Bluetooth set up was a charm. It has a "tacky" little button at the back which expose a metallic support at the back.

    When connected with iPhone, there is a handy battery icon on the top right corner of the iPhone which shows the Transit battery levels - mind you no specific app was required to be installed - nice.

    Its form factor is a big plus. Being relatively slim, it is easier to slide in my computer bag. Wife even carried it in her purse a couple of times. Can slip easily in my jacket pocket which is very convenient.

    Design is cool. Looks professional, rigid, with brushed metallic accents. Minimal buttons, nice smooth finish on the body.

    Did not have hands free calling in mind in mind when I bought Transit but find it very handy now after using in a couple of long conference calls.

    The packaging was very Apple like which conforms that a lot of thought and efforts have gone into the product to make it a premium product. Came with a handy magnetic cover which nicely tucks the Transit while in "transit".

    Unfortunately I had left the cover which came with the product while staying in one of the hotels on my trip. Called up the Strata office and was pleasantly surprised with warm "old fashioned" customer service. The guy who picked up the phone was very excited and keen to know how I liked the product and even shipped a free replacement for me the same day !

    It is not the cheapest but I guess like any premium product you get what you pay for. No regrets !

    The best holiday gift!

    • Written by

    I accidently broken my Jambox and was looking to try something different. I received my TRANSIT yesterday and boy, was it a treat! The speaker packs a serious punch for its size, which is great for my apartment as well as when I am traveling. A few things worth noting -

    - The experience of opening the package is very similar to an Apple product. A mix of mystery and playfulness.
    - I appreciated that TRANSIT didn't try to bombard me with tons of pages of manuals (as would be expected for a system with surprisingly few buttons and controls). A quick start guide with 3 or so instructions are all you need to get going.
    - It took me a while to wrap my head around all the customization options in Jambox (good for some but not me) but TRANSIT just gets it. From turning on to listening music took me less than 15 seconds. Amazing!
    - Plenty of battery life to last an entire evening

    Now for the most important part: the sound! Loved the clarity and how it handled the deep bass. Really loved the later part, its so much better than my Jambox. Looking forward to enjoying this treat of a speaker this winter!

    Excellent Product & User Experience - TRANSIT by Soen Audio

    • Written by from Solon

    I originally purchased a TRANSIT by SOEN Bluetooth Speaker for my wife (she primarily uses it with her iPhone & iPad) and I'm so GLAD that I did :-) This simply is one of the best innovative products that we came across this year and everyone in the family simply loves it!

    Impressive form-factor Apple like design, High Quality finish, Crystal crisp sound with excellent balanced bass performance and it is so user friendly that even my 6 yrs daughter can use it too.. Attention to detail is impressive right from external Packaging box to Product to its accessories - it feels as if it is an Apple designed Product!!

    Although SOEN is a new brand, but its TRANSIT product is a very impressive product and superior compared to other bluetooth speakers offered by leading brands line Bose and Beats! In fact, SOEN TRANSIT is comparable to APPLE Products in design, performance, and overall user experience!!

    After thoroughly evaluating and enjoying the 1st unit for about 3 weeks at home and during our travels, we finally knew what we truly needed as the best CHRISTMAS GIFT for our family and close friends and so we ordered 8 more!! The customer service at Soen Audio was so helpful and they promised that the new online order shipment will be delivered to us via FedEx (free shipping) within a few days! Can't ask for more. Very Happy with the overall Experience! I definitely recommend buying TRANSIT if you are in the market to buy a High Quality Premium Product at a very reasonable price. Good Luck!

    Perfect balance of quality, design and price

    • Written by from Simi Valley

    What an awesome product that performs like a Bose, awes you with design, packaging and intuitiveness like Apple and priced perfectly to be affordable for an outstanding product for the music aficionado.

    From atop our piano for music lessons, to listening to my favorite NPR stations while cooking in our kitchen, while giving us company with amazing sound by our hot-tub to my favorite accompaniment in my home office, I find so many ways to enjoy the crystal-clear sound, the amazing bass and refined look of the Transit.

    Every so often a great product designed with passion, built with talent and brought to the market with inspiration moves me. Transit gave me the same goosebumps as when they introduced the new Beetle, the first iPhone or the first look at the Tesla.

    Just what I needed for my iPad!

    • Written by from Simi Valley

    I have loved using my iPad for music and movies, but always felt that the sound was not good enough. And then I saw this rocking speaker (Soen TRANSIT) at a friends' party who was all gaga about it, and decided to give it a shot.

    Well, I have been blown away with the whole experience. Opening up the packaging was delightful just like unwrapping a gift. I loved it. It was so easy to pair Transit with my iPad and (within few seconds) I was enjoying my tunes. My personal entertainment while moving around the house is a completely different experience now.

    What surprises me is the clarity, depth and loudness of the Sound from such a small speaker. No distortions at all! The speakerphone is a great feature for handsfree calls on Face Time and Skype while I multi-task, and it feels like I am right there with my girl friends. My friends do not even realize that I am talking through a speakerphone.

    I also love the design Sleekness and light weight. Feels like my clutch. Showing it off to my friends has been great fun.

    I have used it with my iphone, ipad and macbook without any issues.
    Definitely ending the 2013 with a great gift to myself!

    Soul of the Music!

    • Written by from Hamilton

    I got it as a birthday gift from my wife ~3 weeks ago. I was blown away with Transit starting with its packaging. Felt like I am opening an Apple product! Set up was super intuitive and easy.

    The minimalist design has been growing on me as I keep using it. Besides its clean iconic look Transit seems to be designed with a lot of thought for user experience. It is just over an inch thick and easily slides into my laptop bag or backpack. Weighing only 0.5 Kg, I find it easy to travel with. Its switchblade stand at the back is clever. The magnetic cover is simple but delightful, it is very easy to attach/remove when I want, but doesn't come off accidentally. Again, I usually see this level of design and build quality on Apple products.

    Now coming to its performance, I am amazed at the clean bass and rich details in Mids and Highs delivered by Transit. My playlists span across a wide range of genre's, I've gone thru' so many of them in last 3 weeks. I am surprised how clear and natural it sounds. This little thing can get loud enough to fill my 14' x 18' study without any distortion. Definitely the best sounding compact speaker I have come across to date.

    I have not noticed any drop outs on bluetooth connection while moving it around the house. The battery play time is pretty good, I've been averaging ~8 hrs with my iPhone volume set to half. Testing it in party mode (Max. volume) I was able to drain it in 4 hrs , but frankly I do not usually listen to music that loud for that long.

    Transit reminds me of how I felt after graduating from point&shoot digital cameras to my first Canon DSLR. I am thoroughly impressed. I had never heard of Soen Audio, but IMHO Transit will give the Bose and Beats portable speakers a good run for their money.

    Great product !!

    • Written by from Phoenix

    I had been looking around for a compact, yet powerful speaker to use with my iDevice ecosystem, and this one really caught my fancy. The sound quality is amazing, it really fills up the space, with the added bonus being the price....you get a Bose-level performance by spending much less.

    TRANSIT by Soen Portable Bluetooth Speaker

    • Written by from Ventura

    When I opened the box it felt luxurious. This is not some cheap foreign made product. The wall/USB charger is compact and folds up. The magnetic case to protect the speaker is awesome.

    The pop out stand is solid. The speaker is well designed, gorgeous and portable yet sturdy and hearty and feels very durable.

    I was concerned about pairing it to multiple devices but it was a breeze. Simply hold the blue-tooth button and it easy found both devices. The sound quality and volume is absolutely stunning. The quality of sound is far better than my previous Bose and other brand devices.

    This has become my home office speaker phone as well. The call quality and microphone are outstanding. Since the unit will pair to 8 devices at a time if there is one feature I would like to add it would be a toggle switch or small LED screen to see and switch between paired devices.

    This product is awesome and my guests have agreed. The quality, functionality and ease of use far exceed the price point.

    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!!

    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.

    Blown away by the TRANSIT!

    • Written by from Pasadena

    Wasn't excited about spending an outlandish price for speakers ... I mean $200 for Bluetooth speakers? Seriously? And I see there are other speakers in the Store for more, much more.

    Then I opened the package and there sat the TRANSIT in its sleek black box. The box it's in is a pleasure to even look at and hold in your hands. Inside is more of the same. Definitely a premium job.

    On the the TRANSIT itself -- WOW. The sound coming from that thing is astonishing. I was sold on Soen instantly. The build quality is top notch and the design is simple, pure and elegant. Nothing complicated in the placing of the important buttons or on how to pair. And the tone that sounds when you do some main operations...nice! I'm used to two separate speakers that you then tether together. Not this one. One solid box, no muss no fuss. And, again, the sound! Absolutely spectacular.

    I've only had my TRANSIT for a short little while but I couldn't be happier with my (expensive but well worth it) purchase. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

    love the Soen portable Bluetooth Speaker

    • Written by from West Hills

    I received this speaker system as a Christmas gift. At first glance, I loved the look of it. It’s has a sleek elegant look compared to other portable speaker systems like the Jam Box. I don’t mind having it on my desk at work. I don’t feel that I have to hide it from a customer or my boss when they walk into my office. Its sleek design fits in anywhere. It also feels solid in my hand. I’m not worried about accidently breaking it. I was even more impressed with the sound quality. Typically small portable speaker systems are lacking in either the high end or low end. Not this product. It has very rich sound with great range from end to end. The sound quality is crisp and full no matter what genre of music I am listening to. It sounds much bigger than its size. My family and friends are all impress. Lastly, it’s very easy to pair. I would definitely recommend this product over all others for the money and then some.

    Got Music ??

    • Written by from Round Rock

    Bought this after hearing at my friends place. The order was quickly delivered, and very well packaged. The product is of high quality sound from small form factor, and exceptional build quality. Very easy to setup, press a button and pair the device.

    This product has been traveling with us wherever our family goes. There are many speakers out there , claiming to be travel companion, I think this one truly stands out to provide the high quality music. Now, I can really say that I "Got Music" with me all the times.

    Best Speaker Available

    • Written by from Oak Park

    After comparing to the Jawbone, the Pill and other products in the market, this is by far the richest sounding speaker available, and for a respectable price. The bass is the deepest out of the speakers that I tested and the Bluetooth connectivity is seamless. This is perfect for on the go and at home. The pop-out stand is sturdy and the speaker has a very solid feel. I would recommend this to anyone in the market looking for a top-notch speaker with portability and excellent build quality in mind
