The Soundfreaq Sound Kick sets a new bar for sub-$100 Bluetooth speakers — at least as far as sound quality is concerned. Compared to other budget speakers, it provides great sound, and can be played at reasonably high volumes without distortion. However, it's bulkier than a lot of other portable speakers, doesn't include a speakerphone, and can't be charged over USB (though it does include a USB port, so you can use it to charge your smartphone). If you don't need a speakerphone or a pocket-sized speaker, and don't want to spend too much, the Sound Kick is a good choice.

Seeing as how it’s only $100, the Sound Kick is an excellent buy. It’s available starting this week exclusively from Soundfreaq’s website and at Target stores, but a Soundfreaq spokesperson tells me the Sound Kick will make its way to other retail outlets in the coming months.

If you’re looking for an inexpensive speaker dock with good sound quality that works with mobile devices and could be considered portable in a pinch, you might want to consider the Sound Kick. But, ... I realize I’m more likely to take something like the Jambox with me during travel.

Soundfreaq has done a masterful job of crafting something that will be extremely hard to beat for its $100 price, and consequently, we believe that Sound Kick is fully worthy of our high recommendation.

In conclusion, the Sound Kick is a good buy, and probably the most sound for money I've heard from a portable Bluetooth speaker to date. It may not be something you can walk around with in your hand, but that extra heft certainly doesn't go to waste.

I usually factor cost into my reviews as us common folk don't review these things just for fun, but we review them as consumers. The bottom line is that the Sound Kick is easily worth the $99 I paid; which is the full retail price. It sounds amazing and is easy to pair. The dedicated power button...
