The guys from Philips have released an upgrade to their Shoqbox Wireless Portable Speaker last year. It was released in June, 2012 and it’s model number is SB7220. The wireless speaker industry seems to be getting more and more popular, and so I guess it was only natural Philips came with an improvement to their older version. Although I don’t like the way it looks, some users find it “uniquely designed”, but the point is to analyse its audio performance so that my readers can make an informed decision when purchasing such a unit.

The new Philips SB7220 Shoqbox Wireless Portable Speaker unit was first made available on the market in June last year. It was made available for purchase at Amazon on June 1, 2012. Even though it hasn't seen enormous success just yet, I think Philips have got some really interesting surprises for us this year.

Philips has been getting more and more into the accessory-type products market, and have been getting good at it. With some previous popular units to back them up, Philips have now introduced this wireless speaker to their customers. Although it doesn't look like an ordinary Philips product, the SB7220 Shoqbox will serve a lot of people looking for music on the go and/or a sturdy portable outdoor/indoor music streaming device.

Pros:
  • Voice prompt for feedback
Cons:
  • Bass could have been louder for outdoor usage

Although its audio performance is more than just decent, we'll talk about that in a minute. The first feature I want to address is its rough construction and sturdy encasement. The Philips SB7220 Shoqbox was developed for the most outdoorsy people out there. It can withstand "generous" drops and even splashes, while continuing to play your favorite tune. We haven't actually violently dropped it just to see how far it can go, but some reviewers say that there's no stopping to the music. This unit can stand harsh times and rough use; you don't have to worry about rain or spills. The unit features a tough rubber casing which makes it perfect for outdoor activities, like biking and hiking. Come to think of it, I know understand this design's purpose and color choice; it give you an "army-style" feeling of roughness and durability.

This wireless portable speaker is equipped and powered by 2 neodymium drivers and wOOx system; this will deliver very crisp clear sound. It's pretty much the best sound you can ask for from such a little unit at this price range. The SB7220 Shoqbox also gives you the option to pair two units together and use them as a L-R audio speakers system. The streaming option is delivered by Bluetooth, allowing you to stream your music from any Bluetooth compatible devices. It also comes with a built-in mic for speakerphone usage.

A great feature that I love when using this unit is the swipe sensor. You can skip back and forward through your music playlist just by swiping your hand over the motion sensor. The sensor also gives you the ability to pause a track by simply placing and holding your hand over the sensor for 1 second, do the same to put it back on. Basically you can control your music in the simplest way without having to touch the speaker (great for outdoor trips).

All in all, if you are an outdoorsy person, or just need a portable streaming device around your house this unit is one of the best and durable options in its price range, and the eight-hour battery life ain't that bad either. Although not the most stylish one I've seen, one of the most surprising for sure.
