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...

A Fashionable Bluetooth Speaker : BenQ treVolo

 

When the name of BenQ pops up, my thoughts immediately turn towards the range of display units produced by the company. However BenQ does have other strings to its bow as the arrival of a new product clearly indicates. This product is the treVolo which...

When you first remove the treVolo from its packaging, it is a wedged shaped solid device that is encircled by a dark grey metallic collar. In this state, the unit has dimensions of 176.6 x 134.6 x 78.5mm (H x D x W). On either side of the device are...

Excellent audio reproduction.

Bass response falls a bit flat.

BenQ TreVolo Bluetooth speaker review

 

Meet the BenQ TreVolo, an eye-catching Bluetooth speaker that makes use of "electrostatic speakers" to deliver its sound (but to you and me, it's a fancy way of saying flat panel speakers) along with a foldable design and a sleek metallic-style...

We've seen Bluetooth speakers come in all manner of different shapes and sizes, but we don't think we've seen anything quite like the BenQ TreVolo in quite some time. The main body looks like a solid chunk of aluminium with some startling speaker...

We're keen on the TreVelo's odd design and sound quality is pretty decent, but it simply doesn't cope with bass-heavy tracks. Songs with a deeper bass sounded incredibly muddy, mostly due to the flat panel speakers that just can't keep up with the...

The BenQ TreVolo is one of the strangest Bluetooth speakers we've seen to date, but the smart folding design looks good, it's solid and sturdy and the electrostatic panels are sure to be a conversation starter. The crisp and clear audio sounds great,...

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 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...
