BenQ treVolo review

 

BenQ's TreVolo will dazzle you with pinpoint accuracy, but a lack of punch may leave you wanting more.

A gorgeously designed speaker from all angles, the talented TreVolo has enough brilliance, balance, and accuracy to satisfy even the most discerning Bluetooth critic, but what’s the fun in a wireless speaker if you can’t blast sound from across the...

BenQ TreVolo

 

The BenQ TreVolo is a portable electrostatic Bluetooth speaker that offers crisp audio in a unique design.

Excellent clarity in the mids and highs. Rich, natural bass response. Unique design with folding electrostatic speaker panels. Built-in speakerphone.

Digital signal processing kills transient peaks at mid-to-high volumes. Not for big bass lovers. System doesn't get as loud as most similarly sized/priced competitors.

The allure of its electrostatic panels aside, the TreVolo is a solid portable option for those seeking clarity in the high-mids and highs without sacrificing bass completely. If you're looking for more bass response from a Bluetooth system, however,...

BenQ treVolo Electrostatic Bluetooth Speaker

 

BenQ's treVolo is a lush-sounding Bluetooth speaker that should please audiophiles with reasonable expectations.

Spacious sound; Fold-up, portable design; Cool conversation piece

Limited volume; Limited bass; Pricey compared with Bluetooth speakers with similar volume/bass capabilities

BenQ treVolo portable Bluetooth speaker

 

High quality sound, battery powered portability, and a wacky design make this speaker an interesting one to consider

Built-in battery for portability ; High-quality sound overall ; Interesting design

Some tracks needed more treble ; BenQ Audio app didn't work for us

BenQ Trevolo S

 

BenQ Trevolo S review: this portable electrostatic speaker is a neat idea, but the results just aren't compelling enough to recommend

Good battery life ; 3D sound mode works quite well ; Detailed, well-projected treble

Sound is not that cohesive ; Conventional wireless speakers sound bigger, more powerful

The BenQ Trevolo S’s portable electrostatic speaker concept is neat, but the results aren’t compelling enough.

BenQ treVolo

 

BenQ is the latest company to try its hand at making portable, Bluetooth speakers – but its effort is different. This design incorporates electrostatic technology, more commonly seen in high-end speakers, and is known to produce very detailed sound.

Reasonably wide sound ; Up to 12 hours battery life ; Detailed sound

Rock and indie music sound awful ; Bass is a little underwhelming

An innovative Bluetooth speaker that offers detailed sound, but there are more versatile speakers available for the price.

BenQ treVolo review

 

Original design and reasonable sound, but this wireless speaker fails to live up to the bold claims...

Decent amount of detail with modest arrangements ; Striking aesthetics

Lacks significant expression ; Can sound smaller than expected

We can’t argue BenQ are trying to push the boundaries, but the treVolo is just an okay-sounding speaker

BenQ TreVolo review

 

Unique portable Bluetooth speaker does enough to impress

Truly distinctive design ; Very detailed, clear sound ; Genuinely portable ; Decent battery life

Little lacking in bass ; Needs careful positioning ; Quite directional sound ; No remote control

The treVolo looks and, to some extent, sounds unlike anything the Bluetooth speaker market has seen before, making it a near-ideal way for BenQ to mark its debut on the home audio scene. It doesn't suit all musical tastes, but when it's good it's very...
