Tronsmart is planning to release another portable speaker called Tronsmart Element T6 Max early next year. Once again, we were very lucky, and we received this product for testing a couple of months before its official release.
The product is characterized by an original and attractive design, so it will fit well into the interior. It supports SoundPulse technology, due to which it was possible to provide the highest sound power, which corresponds to the 60 W parameter. The drivers here are configured as carefully as possible, so the sound came out well detailed. Its range is very wide, regardless of the type of room. Eight passive radiators are responsible for the bass line here. The device is equipped with a rechargeable battery, whose capacity is as much as 12,000 mAh. On a full charge, the speaker can work for almost 20 hours at medium volume. The case of the device is protected from dust and moisture according to the IPX5 standard.
How is the column packaged?
This model is delivered in a stylish box made of thick cardboard. The column itself is securely fixed in the package, does not hang out – it is almost impossible to damage it during transportation. At the same time, the kit contains everything you need to work with the product – a USB Type-C charging cable, instructions, including those translated into Russian, and a warranty card. The warranty period is 1 year. The kit also comes with a fabric cover, which will protect the product well from dust, but it is unlikely that it will be able to protect it from physical influences.

Assembly and controls
The column is assembled securely, all parts are tightly fitted to each other, we were unable to identify any backlashes, extraneous squeaks even with strong pressure. The top part is a perforated stainless steel metal part. The holes protrude to cool the internals. The bottom of the speaker is made of fabric materials, which allow better sound transmission to the outside. The connector for connecting the charger is located at the bottom, hidden by a special rubber plug, which reliably protects the socket from moisture and dust.
All controls here are touch-sensitive and located at the top of the device. In the very center of the touchpad is the power button, which is also responsible for selecting the automatic equalizer. Volume keys are provided, between them there is a light indication indicating the volume level. The product is not too large in overall dimensions, but it weighs decently thanks to a capacious battery. The touchpad is covered with glossy materials, so it will show fingerprints. In general, the product is not very convenient to carry in the hands, the manufacturers did not provide a handle.
Overall sound quality Tronsmart Element T6 Max
The product is capable of working with the original True Wireless Stereo technology, which is not available in every product of this type. Due to this possibility, you can synchronize several similar devices with each other at once and connect them to a single sound source, for example, to a smartphone or TV. Pairing can be carried out via NFC or Bluetooth, in any case, the data transfer rate is very high and stable. Backlight at the touch control panel allows you to use products even at night. The column supports work with various voice assistants – Siri, Google Assistant, Cortana, but for some reason the device is not friendly with Alice.
The sound is good, but still not without nuances. When the music is not playing, but the speaker is turned on, a barely audible hiss is heard from it. Moreover, it can be heard at a fairly large distance – up to one and a half meters. The claimed battery life is quite true, the battery is charged for a relatively short time – about 3 hours, but this is not at all surprising, since the battery capacity is very high. We tried to listen to the speaker at maximum volume: it was enough for about 7-7.5 hours.
Fine-tuning the equalizer is not provided here, but it is not required. The standard sound option is suitable for most musical styles. For hip-hop or other genres where low frequencies play a fundamental role, there is a “Bass” mode that enhances the lower range. All low frequencies, even the strongest ones, are clearly audible, no wheezing was found during testing.

Tronsmart Element T6 MAX portable Bluetooth speaker – advantages, disadvantages and conclusions
Like any other digital technology, this model has both pluses and minuses. Let’s first look at the advantages of this device:
- Quite acceptable cost;
- Attractive appearance;
- Reliable protection against dust and moisture;
- Plays very loudly
- Long service life;
- Excellent build quality;
- High battery capacity;
- There is everything you need for comfortable use.
The disadvantages of the column are not too significant, but they are still there:
- The fabric cover that comes with the product can protect against dust ingress, but it cannot protect against physical impacts such as shocks or falls;
- Absolutely always, the column emits a slight hiss – if the music is not played, then it is heard very clearly, it will also interfere when listening to music at minimum volume;
- The control panel is glossy, fingerprints remain on it and dust can accumulate, you will have to regularly wipe it with special wipes with an antistatic effect;
- Fine tuning of the equalizer is not provided – you have to use only standard formats.
We did not have the slightest questions about the quality of production of these products, the management also turned out to be quite simple and understandable. On all channels, pairing occurs almost instantly. The sound quality is acceptable, but still not without complaints. I would like to recommend such a purchase to music lovers who do not pay too much attention to the overall sound quality, but rather look at how long the device is able to work offline.
