Samsung Radiant360 R5 Review

 

A chic design is not enough to launch this speaker to the top of our list. It struggles with bass-driven music, although it sounds good when you listen to more soft or acoustic songs. It is Bluetooth and Airplay compatible, but lacks a line-in port for...

The tower design allows for 360-degree sound dispersion.

The speaker struggles to produce punchy bass.

This stylish speaker looks great and has a pleasing sound despite its lackluster bass reproduction.

Small footprint ; Generous range of music services ; Stylish, intuitive app ; Good integration, attack and detail ; Omnidirectional tech works well

Design lacks the wow factor of R7 ; Could be more finessed ; No Tidal or SoundCloud support

It sounded great in the store, But!

 

The demo in the store sounded unreal and very robust! When I got them home the sound was terrible and the speakers blue up! I had to take them back the next day.
