"The new Rockster XS is now significantly louder, sounds much more powerful, clearer and more balanced"
Computer Bild 21.02.2018
"Good news: Teufel has actually managed to further refine the sound. […] What's striking is [...] its playback at maximum level, where the bass is automatically reduced so there's no booming."

"Successful update: The new Rockster XS is now significantly louder, sounds much more powerful, clearer and more balanced and now includes buttons for title control and displays the battery charge level. Together with the charging function for smartphones and the outdoor-suitable housing (water and shock-proof), it is now fully equipped and leaves nothing to be desired."

Genuine stereo for twice the power, wirelessly. The whole system works optimally up to a distance of 1-2 metres, however this feature does not work in combination with the old ROCKSTER XS.

    • Testbericht - Paul Rigby - The Audiophile Man - 8/10
      "The sense of clarity in this stream mode was quite startling for a Bluetooth speaker at this price point"
      theaudiophileman.com 09/2018
      “My eyebrows were initially raised because this diminutive speaker filled my test room very easily and ran loud, to boot via an AAC stream from my iPhone 8. The room spanned around 21 x 13 feet (6.5 x 4m) with an eight foot (2.5m) ceiling. The Rockster allowed All The Lovers from Kylie Minogue to shake the windows.”

      “My eyebrows continued to rise because of the sheer quality of the music. To be honest, I think of Teufel and I think of bass. Sometimes too much bass. Not here. The Rockster offered clarity and transparency with a 3D soundstage sitting layered with a front to back effect. That is, Minogue’s voice was pushed forwards with the backing instruments a measured distance behind. This helped diction and the emotion in the vocal to come though.”

      “There was plenty of instrumental detail, though, with a bass that was happy to sit within the mix. Hence, delicacy was never swamped or masked. I heard plenty of acoustic guitar strumming, tambourines and even a cello making an appearance. For a lossy file, the effect was surprisingly rich." 

      “I then connected my MacBook via Bluetooth (sharing the connection with my iPhone) and played St Thomas from Sonny Rollins at 24bit/96kHz. Played via Audirvana Plus, I didn’t expect to hear too much detail. Streaming is more of a convenience than a transport for audio quality yet the Rockster displayed a fair bit of that. Yes, there were the usual streaming-inspired uncontrolled elements in the upper mids but also a lot of focus during the mid-song drum solo with impressive transient ability while the Rollins sax was impressively breathy and reedy for a stream. Organic in other words. The sense of clarity in this stream mode was quite startling for a Bluetooth speaker at this price point, highlighting the value for money.”

      “[…] The Teufel Rockster XS is not exactly low in price but, condsidering the sonic output, it still displayed excellent value for money. Surprisingly good in its streaming performance with an appreciative sonic improvement in wired mode, refreshingly lacking in EQ gimmicks and other toys, this Bluetooth speaker is a fine performer indeed.”

      "The Berliners are known for their brutal sound. Can you also put it into a handy Bluetooth speaker? The Teufel Rockster XS plays lively and powerfully, the bass is pleasantly warm and the music comes clearly to the ear. The neat sound is not the only advantage. With a battery life of up to 18 hours, you can spend a while on the ceiling or on the grass. In addition, the Rockster XS can be used as a power bank and if you buy two Rockster XS, you can connect them as a stereo set-up."

      "[…] Let's start with the beginning, the high tones. The Rockster XS has very nice clear and airy heights. Voices also have a beautiful shine and are well presented."

      "The mids aren't over-emphasised, but of course the dynamics between highs and lows are even better."

      "However, the big difference to cheap Bluetooth loudspeakers can be heard primarily with the bass. For its size the Teufel Rockster XS produces an incredibly powerful and massive bass. In addition, the air pressure and the volume are just right here!"

      "I was also impressed by the good maximum volume and level stability. […] for music at a small party or some atmosphere in the kitchen/smaller rooms, the Rockster XS is perfect."

      "Acoustically, this is without question one of the best, if not the best speaker in its size class."

      "The trick here is to get so much sound into such a small cabinet, which Teufel has also done excellently with the Rockster XS."

      "If that's what you're looking for, I can fully recommend the Rockster XS, especially as the feel and battery is excellent."

      "Teufel has audibly improved the sound. Numerous details have been revised so that the sound is now even more balanced than the previous model, which was already impressive. The high tones are much clearer in the test than with the predecessor. The mids no longer appear occupied, while the basses retain their usual depth. Overall, the sound is completely convincing. Another positive aspect is the increase of the maximum level, at which the bass is automatically reduced. You don't get any unpleasant roars."

      "The design of the Rockster XS allows the speaker to be used both vertically and horizontally. No matter which position you choose, the beam angle is always slightly upwards to convey the sound perfectly to the listener's ear. If one Rockster XS alone is not enough for you, you can couple two models to one stereo pair."

      "[…] The little Teufel Bluetooth speaker sounds good even in the 2017 version and no matter what music was played, the Rockster XS leaves nothing bare. […] The low frequency range, even if it could reach a few Hz lower, was differentiated and free of loudspeakers, voice reproduction was clear and detailed and there were no major weaknesses in the high frequency range either."

      "With the new Rockster XS 2017, Teufel has launched a good successor to the old XS. The sound is quite balanced and therefore suitable for the enjoyment of many music genres. […] The processing of the XS is of high quality."

      "Is it worth buying the Teufel Rockster XS (2017)? Yes absolutely, if one is ready to hand over almost 200 euros. In return, you get a very robust, very persistent jester with extras such as the built-in powerbank function, with which you can also charge your mobile phone in an emergency. It is also reasonably handy so that you can take it with you, and it's splash-proof. So it also cuts a good figure by the lake or swimming pool."

      "Powerful, dynamic sound that sounds good across all music genres"
      www.bild.de 16.01.2016
      “The A-Cappella vocals of 9Bach sound clear and very present, creating an immediate good impression. […] The quiet prelude to Peter Gabriel's "Mercy Street" is just as well played by the loudspeaker as the incipient rhythm with the driving bass. Thanks to its sturdy construction, the small Rockster knows how to play a good bass like very few other speakers of this size. Yello's "Oh Yeah" and "The Expert" make the speaker vibrate without distorting the sound."

      “The Rockster XS has an extra button that activates outdoor mode. The bass is lowered slightly and the mid-range more pronounced. This creates the impression that the sound is played louder. At least it gets a little wider. With the acoustic test songs, this setting also appeals for home use. As soon as it becomes rocky, standard mode sounds more pleasant. But sound tastes are also different. Just try it out!"

      Conclusion: “The Rockster XS delivers what its big brother promises. Powerful, dynamic sound that sounds good across all music genres. For its price and size [......] the mobile speaker clearly plays in the upper league."

It plays deep, full and beautifully clean basses, and high tones are pleasantly crisp [...]."

      Teufel's Rockster XS is suitable for anyone who spends a lot of time outdoors and is looking for a sturdy, high-quality Bluetooth speaker. The sound is rich in detail, reveals a strong bass foundation and is very stable. The control panel can also be operated directly on the speaker itself. We also think it's good that Teufel has thought of a jack plug connection. This means that even devices without Bluetooth can be connected to the Rockster XS."

    For the size an absolute listener! After a short recording time it is really fun and tempts to groove. I am really surprised by the long battery life at medium to high volumes. It feels like it can't be reduced. Conclusion: Makes a lot of fun at parties and outdoors, but is not a master at soft or delicate sounds, a different device from B&O can do that slightly better.
