amazon Soundfreaq Sound Kick SFQ-04 reviews
Sound Kick SFQ-04 is a new addition to the lineup of portable speakers from the American loudspeaker company Soundfreaq. Although relatively new to the market, Soundfreaq has produced a number of well-known high-end entertainment devices, such as the Sound Stack SFQ-03 or Sound Step SFQ-02.
Similar to previous models, the Sound Kick SFQ-04 also focuses on users of mobile devices equipped with Bluetooth wireless technology. Sound Kick SFQ-04 looks quite compact and angular with traditional black. The entire surface of the speaker front is covered with a metallic grid of the same color that makes the SoundKick SFQ-04 more professional and durable. The edge on the device is a power button with a range of modern touch control buttons are reasonably grouped.
Not only because of its ability to stream music wirelessly from sources that support Bluetooth connectivity, Sound Kick SFQ-04 is also impressed by the design of the acoustic resonance box called “XKICK”. This exclusive technology promises to give the listener a fuller sound with more powerful bass but still ensures the portability of the speaker.
Soundfreaq also boasts an additional 2,200mAh Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery which, according to the company, can maintain up to 7 hours of continuous audio playback. Users of mobile devices that support USB charging will probably be pleased with the built-in USB out (5V DC, 500mA) connector on the back of the speaker.
Overall, with a size of 267 x 106 x 42 mm and a weight of about 704g, the Sound Kick SFQ-04 does not take up too much space or appears heavy when put in a backpack or bag to carry with you. Users can choose between using the speakers directly powered by the included adapter, or using the power from the built-in battery. However, note that when using the power from the built-in battery, there will be a slight limit to the volume of the speaker due to the shared design of the power reserve to charge the mobile device when need.
The only way to power on this speaker is to “open” the sound box on the back of the device. Once the sound box has been completely pulled out (with a defined line at the top edge of the speaker), the user can take advantage of this design to place the Sound Kick SFQ-04 at an angle to keep the speaker standing firmly.
In order to obtain the most objective evaluation, the Digitizer also “runs” the Sound Kick SFQ-04 more than 8 hours in many different genres. Because the device supports 3.5mm audio input, Digitool decided to try listening to this portable speaker on a PC using the ALC887 integrated sound card with high quality audio sources (CD 16 bit standard / 44KHz) and Foobar 2000 software version 1.0.3.

Sound Kick SFQ-04 really made a good impression by the sound quality is good, although digital volume is only adjust 50% of the volume of the computer. The touch controls on the top edge of the speakers are reasonably grouped and also highly sensitive.
Songbird CD1 – Kenny G, All My Loving – Jheena Lodwick, Feelings Vol.2 – Jheena Lodwick and Guns N ‘Roses greatest hit 2004, Digitize Sound Kick SFQ-04 has a negative tone of sound. The sound tones of the Sound Kick SFQ-04 are reproduced quite smoothly, although the high pitch remains somewhat lacking while listening at high volume. The bass notes of the speakers are full but not as deep and heavy as when listening to Bose SoundLink Wireless Mobile speakers. Although the acoustic resonance design contributes significantly to bass reproduction, the Sound Kick SFQ-04 is not yet very well suited to the more vibrant bass genres. Especially when Digitized listened to bass notes like THX – Jurassic Lunch (Major Bass), 1-2-3-4-5-6 Bass or THX – Sound Bass.
Similar to its other portable speakers, the Sound Kick SFQ-04 also incorporates a unique UQ3 audio processing technology to optimize stereo sound effects for the speakers. We recognizes that when using this “effect” the sound space and “buoyancy” are noticeably improved, but the bass strips become fuzzy. Users also noted that some Equalizer effects on the player will sometimes cause distortion if combined with this UQ3 sound effect.
With wide space music such as Avemaria in Audiophille Reference 1 or Duo For Violin & Cello, Op.7 – Allegro Serioso, Non Troppo and The Carmen Ballet – IX Torero in McIntosh Audiophile Test Reference, Sound Kick SFQ. -04 gives the listener a far more distant stage. However, the sound detail of SoundKick SFQ-04 shows that these tracks can be rated quite well.
Try connecting the Sound Kick SFQ-04 to Apple iPhone 3GS and HTC Explorer via Bluetooth wireless connectivity and listen to some 128kbps / 320kbps MP3s available in the device as well as online, we recognizes the sound of the device. It does not change as much as it sounds on the computer. Sound Kick SFQ-04 sound is best when setting the volume of the player at about 60% to 70%.
While not equipped with a remote control like the Sound Stack SFQ-03, these new mobile speakers can download the Soundfreaq Remote App application to control the speakers through Bluetooth connectivity in an easy way. This application supports the user to transfer songs, select the source of the music player, customize the volume of or turn off the power of the speaker. Depending on the device that you use, users can download this free app from 2 app stores on the App Store or Android Market.
In short, with its sleek design, high portability and performance, the Soundfreaq Sound Kick SFQ-04 can be a good choice for portable wireless entertainment needs.
