Photive SOUNDSCAPE 8 Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker Review

Photive SOUNDSCAPE 8 Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker Review We have been doing a lot of reviews lately on many of the tough and rugged wireless speakers meant for folks on the go. Many of these speakers are selling for under $100 and are loaded with features for outdoor use. We did a review on the Photive HYDRA Rugged Water Resistant Wireless Speaker and was impressed with Photive. We also really like the Photive SOUNDSCAPE 8 Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker, still portable, but more refined, and even better sounding. This is a very nice wireless bluetooth speaker that will not hurt the wallet.

Stereo Separation

Stereo separation is merely the separation of sounds through the right and left speaker. When listening to the music you may hear the drums through the right speaker and the guitar from the left, this separation mimics the spatial separation within the studio where the music was recorded. This speaker does have stereo sound and is a bit wider than most portable units, but as with the other wireless speakers the further you get away from the speaker the harder it is to hear the stereo affect.

Wireless Range

The range is 30-33 feet. That is the distance from your device to the speaker, you need to have the device within that range to avoid losing your connection.
