A central inverted active bass unit brings immediate and room-filling bottom end notes that, while not earth-shaking, brings a hefty rumble.

We would characterize the vanilla factory DSP setting as neutral but not dynamic enough for our taste. Switching between the various user-selectable presets, we found "Jazz club" to be the most free with the hardware, letting the driver cones fly and restricting bass only to a moderate degree. One issue we noticed is that the DSP is intrusive in many presets. It's possible that Libratone is protecting against distortion by limiting bass output, though the end result is a gimped low end not up to par with what a speaker of its size. As far as bass reproduction is concerned, "restrained" would be a generous term for all Lounge DSP profiles. It's tight and fast, but the real "oomph" comes only at near-max volumes. We believe that it's the DSP at work, but the Lounge suffers from an apparent dip in sound fidelity between low and midrange frequencies.

That being said, when turned up Libratone Classic Diva Speaker 80 to 90 percent max output, the Lounge's sound begins to blend nicely and can easily shake floors if needed. We hardly Libratone Classic Diva Speaker to music at such high levels, though the setup is an interesting choice for what is essentially an oversized personal speaker. We would have liked to see a bit more in the way of home theater capability given the price and size of the Lounge, which for many will reside in front of or near their HDTV.

The Lounge should not be confused with a surround-sound system as the split driver and tweeter setup only allows for true stereo audio output. DSP can be employed to simulate so-called "full room optimization," but discrete channels will not be processed and output as such.

Testing Lounge with a variety of music, the speaker likes smooth, rolling tracks like jazz, Libratone Classic Diva Speaker and some classic rock best. Pop songs and electronica are not as well reproduced, Libratone Classic Diva Speaker are acceptable when played at high listening levels. The Zipp With the Zipp, sound quality was comparable, if not equally powerful, to the Lounge. Without the extra low- and mid-range drivers, Libratone had to compensate with sound processing, partially coloring the otherwise pristine high-end output afforded by the two ribbon tweeters.

While other portable speakers pack in dual drivers for stereo sound, Libratone's take is perhaps more effective as channel separation is rarely distinguishable in such a small form factor. Further, the Zipp is made to be the center of attention, easily handling DJ duties for a medium size party.

Libratone Lounge review

Blasting crisp, luscious sounding tunes in degrees, the Zipp is one of the most versatile devices we've tested. Libratone markets the Zipp as a " Scandanavian," which basically means produced sound emanates in all directions from the Tweeter orientation is such that coverage is largely proportional to bass tones reflected off the top cover Zipp's four-inch driver. The overall sound profile is similar to the Lounge, with shimmery highs Libratone Classic Diva Speaker super tight bass performance, but midrange frequencies drop a bit in the scale since that ranged doesn't have a dedicated driver.

Instead, the bass and tweeters come together through Libratone Classic Diva Speaker to fill the void, managing to do so with mostly accurate response. We were duly impressed with the Zipp's dead quiet sound floor, which constantly had us checking to make sure the unit was powered up when sampling certain symphonies with long largo movements filled with soli viola lulls. When it was time to turn up the tunes, we chose a selection of top pop, rock, country and other tracks listened to by the speaker's target demographic. Not only is there sheer power that literally caused vibrations underfoot, but the sound itself was pristine in a way we've never heard —or expected —from a speaker so small.

Playing back the latest cuts from Jay-Z, Justin Timberlake and others, thumping bass was reproduced faithfully alongside higher frequency synth Libratone Classic Diva Speaker.

Everything blends together in a way that feels complete. Most impressive was Ariana Grande's "Problem," which features the young diva powering through incredible highs followed immediately with bumping Libratone Classic Diva Speaker and hard to reproduce reedy sax tones. Even when she extends her vocal range down to humming low tones, the Zipp picked up and presented the segments with equal strength. Except for a few EQ presets like Movie Time, Zipp generated uncolored and powerful playback across itsHz frequency range.

DSP governance helped out a lot, but was not so intrusive as to create audio artifacts. It should be noted that correct EQ settings are needed to achieve optimal playback.

While we found the included setting comparable for a wide swath of music, we would definitely want access to a visually equalizer for fine tuning those hard-to-match tracks. On of Zipp's one-inch ribbon tweeters.

In sum, the Zipp is one of the best —maybe the best —portables we've ever tested. Libratone claims about four hours of life for the Zipp when untethered, but we managed to keep the Libratone Classic Diva Speaker operating for over 6. With the Lounge, it feels like the DSP setup was made to hold back the powerful bass unit, which in some cases trades off raw power for higher sound fidelity.


The Lounge is definitely designed for the home and it shows with a neutral, open sound that quickly fills rooms. On the other hand, the Zipp performed almost as well, but of course lacked true stereo separation unless we were seated facing the speaker in a specific orientation with the tweeters Libratone Classic Diva Speaker to the left and right of our head. As can be expected, the Lounge has a filled-out sound, but we found it can get a bit mushy compared to the compact Zipp. The Zipp only needs to worry about one driver and two tweeters, making it easier to create Libratone Classic Diva Speaker that delivers much more consistent output.


If you are not able to connect your Diva with to a Wi-Fi network you can still play your speaker wirelessly through Bluetooth. Bluetooth also comes in handy if you. Libratone Classic Diva Speaker to get down to hard-core facts?
