Soundfreaq Sound Rise Black (SFQ-08) Wireless Bluetooth Speaker + Alarm Clock with FM Radio and USB Charger

This Bluetooth speaker does many things, and does them very well. The Soundfreaq Sound Rise is an alarm clock, radio, USB phone charger and a great sounding wireless Bluetooth speaker. You can even stream audio from a various apps, including RDIO, Spotify, iHeartRadio and Pandora. The Sound Rise is very well designed, it’s easy to use, placement of controls and buttons (like snooze) are well though out and executed – you would have to really try hard to accidentally turn off the alarm instead of hitting snooze.

Product Description

Highlights

  • Pairing Bluetooth devices is very easy with a dedicated “pair” button on the radio 
  • Time is displayed in either 12 or 24 hour increments
  • Multiple brightness settings – even completely off, if you like your bedroom totally dark
  • The battery backup keeps the clock running if power is interrupted
  • There are two independent alarms that can be individually set to a single day, every day, weekdays, and weekends
  • Wake with a pleasant 3-tone beep, Bluetooth audio stream from your phone or tablet, or the built-in FM audio

  • Use Tone Control to change the audio quality from neutral, to warm, to bright with three preset equalizer settings
  • USB charging port included to conveniently charge your device without the need for another electrical outlet

Reviewer Comments

PROS

  • The small footprint of this radio makes it ideally suited for a bedside table
  • The included lightning cable means I can charge my “i” device without needing an extra plug
  • Very good sound quality coming from such a small device
  • You can tell that this radio was designed to be easily used when the lights are off and you’re not fully awake – it is very well done indeed
  • Friendly, ergonomic design

CONS

  • The initial Bluetooth pairing was not very intuitive – I guess if you read the included instructions it would have been easier
  • It’s not a stereo radio – only one speaker, but good enough for the bedroom or office

Summary

Should you get it? It is one of the best Bluetooth speakers/clock/alarm at this price point. It is well designed, convenient, and ease of use seems to be an obvious consideration. You would have to spend a lot more for a better device that is this feature rich.
