Mass Fidelity Core review


The Mass Fidelity Core redefines how amazing a small Bluetooth speaker can sound.

At $600, the Core is expensive, especially when one of its primary features is multi-room functionality, implying that buying more than one is needed down the line. Audiophiles are willing to pay top dollar for the sound they want, and the Core should...

Mass Fidelity Core and Core Sub review: Exceptional Bluetooth speakers


The diminutive Core is one of the best Bluetooth speakers ever. The Core Sub is icing on that sonic cake.

Exceptionally musical for a pint-sized speaker ; Can run on battery power ; Supports the aptX Bluetooth codec ; Very good wireless subwoofer available as a well-priced option ; Makes the Core sound even better ; Adjustable crossover and phase ;...

Requires third-party app to stream from local network sources (e.g., a NAS box) ; Ditto for streaming from music services such as Spotify or Tidal ; Can’t send independent streams from one source to multiple Cores ; Can sound flabby when pushed too hard

For all their faults, Mass Fidelity’s Core and Core Sub are remarkable speakers. The company’s acoustic holography isn’t just a marketing gimmick—it really works. In a world where few of us have rooms set up specifically for music listening, with a...

Mass Fidelity Core Multiroom Bluetooth Speaker


The Core is a remarkable speaker that delivers excellent sound quality for its size, but its price is steep.

Stylish, sturdy design; Compact and battery powered; Easy setup, no apps required; Remote control included; Spacious, full-bodied sound; Digital audio input

Pricey; Not ideal for heavy pop/rock

Mass Fidelity Core Review


The Mass Fidelity Core doesn't look like any Bluetooth speaker you've ever seen, because it's more than a nifty wireless peripheral. Boasting a slick design, impressive audio quality and multiroom capabilities, the Core is a jack of all trades and a...

Stylish, compact design ; Rich, balanced 3D audio ; Up to 12 hours of battery life ; Doesn't require an app


The innovative Mass Fidelity Core delivers excellent audio quality you'd expect from a wireless speaker twice its size.

Mass Fidelity Core review


Bluetooth goes premium

Great sound ; Impressive stereo separation ; Bass is rich, deep and detailed

Limited multi-room funtionality ; Weak bass at lower volumes ; Few inputs for a connected speaker

The Mass Fidelity Core is a great-sounding Bluetooth speaker. Its sound is rich and detailed, and the separation makes music a pleasure to listen to. Its problem is its price, which puts it in the realm of dedicated multi-room setups – alongside such...
