TDK Life on Record Trek Flex speaker review: Weatherized (and it sounds like it)

Jon L. Jacobi | May 19, 2015
If a speaker doesn't sound good, not much else matters. Unfortunately, in the case of the portable, weatherized $230 TDK Life on Record Trek Flex, its clever design features and handsome looks don't matter as much as they should. The sound emanating from the Flex lacks clarity, which, considering the sonority of the TDK Trek 360 I reviewed in April, came as a bit of a surprise.

The level of bass and punch was either too little (PCWorld staff), or too much (myself) and was greatly dependent upon the acoustic nature of what you set it on. We'll call that a non-issue, the real issue having already been described.

As much as I liked that Trek 360, that's how flat the Flex leaves me. One is excellent, the other is not. My advice: Spend a bit more, get the Trek 360, and keep it dry.
