over the last couple of years we have seen many portable speakers popping out in the market which are mostly suffice for casual mobile party goers, thus cutting audiophile out of the enjoyment equation. which really shouldn’t be the case and that’s precisely what spurred Dr. Godehard Guenther, the man behind Soundmatters to create what came to be known as the serious audiophile-grade speaker in a tiny package, the Foxl portable speaker that debuted back in 2008. three years on, the Foxl is given a new fresh of life as Foxl v2 – Soundmatters second edition of its portable speaker – which is supposed to be blessed with even better sound with smoother, more extended bass, and more open highs.
