Punches above its weight

High-performance broadband drivers specially developed for the ROCKSTER XS generate a big sound from a small enclosure. The system's passive subwoofer with a class D amplifier makes the ROCKSTER XS one of the best-sounding Bluetooth speakers in its price class.  

The ROCKSTER XS was designed to adapt to any situation you throw at it. In its normal mode, the ROCKSTER XS plays dynamically with powerful bass. The outdoor mode elevates the mids and highs for an enhanced overall sound – perfect for blasting your favourite tunes in the great outdoors.

Bluetooth Verstärker DJ XS Klein Teufel

Unlike the full-sized ROCKSTER, the ROCKSTER XS can be placed upright or on its side. It sounds great either way.

Bluetooth 4.0 with aptX

Stream from smartphones, tablets, PCs, notebook or iPods. NFC makes it easy to establish a wireless connect with source devices even without an initial pairing procedure. Simply hold your smartphone up against the ROCKSTER XS, confirm and connect. The ROCKSTER XS can save up to 6 device profiles.

Bluetooth 4.0 guarantees stable wireless transmission that won’t drain your smartphone’s battery. A range of up to 10 meters grants maximum flexibility when controlling the device. Walk around the room, pass your phone to friends – you’ll still be in range and can effortlessly select the next track. The aptX codec ensures CD-quality playback for the convenience of streaming without diminished sound quality.

Party mode

An additional special feature with the ROCKSTER XS is the ability to pair two smartphones at the same time. This allows two users to combine their individual music collections into the ultimate party mix.

Wireless stereo pair

The Stereo Connect function makes it possible to stream simultaneously to two ROCKSTER XS’s via Bluetooth. The speakers then function as a wireless stereo pair: The left speaker plays the left channel and the right speaker plays the right channel. The stereo pair can be kept up to one meter apart. Please note that beyond this distance, the wireless connection will be lost.

Perfect for the outdoors

The ROCKSTER XS is made from robust aluminium, synthetics and steel for years of worry-free use. Throw the sturdy little speaker in your bag, take it with you to the beach or the park. You won’t have to worry about introducing the ROCKSTER XS to the big, bad world. Its splash-proof design protects against the odd bit of water while silicon bumpers keep the ROCKSTER safe from jolts and bumps.

ROCKSTER XS (2016) review of www.mobiflip.de
ROCKSTER XS (2016) review of www.mobiflip.de
"The sound is flawless."
www.mobiflip.de 21.01.2016
"The loudspeaker rises a bit above the uniform offerings of portable Bluetooth loudspeakers and reminds one more of a "real“ loudspeaker. This is not only the case when it comes to the design, the workmanship is also flawless. The speaker is also a good size and can be transported in a bag."

"The sound is flawless. Truly, I’ve listened to quite a few gadgets in this category and this speaker plays, considering its size, at the top.“

"For me, this loudspeaker [...]  is one of the best, when one takes its size into consideration. The design, workmanship, choice of materials and the sound really won me over."

ROCKSTER XS (2016) review of Computerbild.de
"[T]he Teufel Rockster XS is currently the best all-around offer among compact Bluetooth loudspeakers."
Computerbild.de 15.01.16
"Thanks to its extensive feature set including charging function for smartphones, the powerful and lively sound and incredible runtime for almost 19 hours, the Teufel Rockster XS is currently the best all-around offer among compact Bluetooth loudspeakers. Of all the models available, it was the only one to earn the overall score of „good.“”

"The little Teufel really is a Rockster. It prefers things wild rather than restrained, and sounds pleasantly powerful. Especially with hip hop beats or electronic music, the warm and powerfully tuned loudspeaker is in its element. The Rockster XS reminds one a little of the Bose Soundlink Mini II, but sounds more balanced because the treble is equally matched with the bass range and has a crisp sound to boot. With higher volumes, the treble becomes increasingly sharp without, however, seeming intrusive. In addition, the otherwise truly clean bass fades a bit in the upper third volume setting.”

ROCKSTER XS (2016) review of SFT Magazin
"When it comes to clarity, the fullness of the bass and the warmth of the tone, there are no grounds for complaint with the little ROCKSSTER XS."
SFT Magazin 1|2016
"That Teufel likes to do things the hard way can be observed in the workmanship. The ROCKSTER XS is thoroughly robust and hard-wearing thanks to aluminium sides and a silicon cap over the control elements. [...] When it comes to clarity, the fullness of the bass and the warmth of the tone, there are no grounds for complaint with the little ROCKSSTER XS. Above, it properly pushes out the levels in the treble range. An alternate loundess mode can be activated which somewhat reduces the sound in the bass range, but creates an overall louder, more compact sound image."

ROCKSTER XS (2016) review of Connect.de
"A mature sound, robust enclosure and easy controls – get the party started!“
Connect.de 17.11.15
"Pressing a red illuminated button on the control panel alters the sound: Voluminous and balanced becomes leaner and louder. Which mode does one select for at home or outside? We couldn’t say – it's a matter of personal taste.

Balanced and more well-rounded is the somewhat bassier version which elicited the commentary "unbelievable“ from the audio editorial team next door. The Teufel truly does climb down pretty far into the low frequency basement, does well with voices and didn’t get on any of the testers’ nerves with its relatively soft treble ranges, even after longer listening sessions.”

"Whowever wants to [...] can configure two ROCKSTER XS’s into a stereo set. You might end up making your neighbor grab for a broom handle, because the little speaker can be really loud.”

Conclusion:

"A mature sound, robust enclosure and easy controls – get the party started!“

ROCKSTER XS (2016) review of www.bild.de
ROCKSTER XS (2016) review of www.bild.de
"In general, the little Rockster knows how to shine in the low end, more than many loudspeakers this size..."
www.bild.de 20.01.2016
"The a cappella vocals from 9Bach sounded clear, very present and impressively immediate. The sound remained confident even after a slight increase. The quiet opening of Peter Gabriel’s “Mercy Street” was played back by the loudspeakers every bit as well as the increasing rhythm with the driving bass. In general, the little Rockster knows how to shine in the low end, more than many loudspeakers this size, thanks to its robust construction. Yello’s “Oh Yeah” and “The Expert” make the little speaker vibrate without causing the sound to distort.”

"The Rockster XS has an additional button that activates the outdoor mode. This drives the bass down even deeper and raises the midrange. The impression is created that the sound has become louder. At least it becomes somewhat broader. With the acoustic test sound, this setting was pleasant for inside use as well. As soon as it starts to rock, the standard mode is amore pleasant. But everyone has different sound preferences. Just try it out!”
Conclusion:

"The Rockster XS can do in small rooms what its big brother promises. More powerful, dynamic sound that can handle all genres of music. The mobile speaker [...] clearly plays in the premier league of this price and size class.”

ROCKSTER XS (2016) review of www.areadvd.de
ROCKSTER XS (2016) review of www.areadvd.de
"Power, force, ambience and clarity leave nothing to be desired."
www.areadvd.de 14.12.2015
"The bump- and splash proof solid aluminium enclosure earns the highest grade when it comes to workmanship. Flawlessly fitted metal grilles with the grey 'Teufel T' protect the chassis; at the top and bottom, rubber bumpers ensure that small falls don’t cause the ROCKSTER XS to end up in the electronics waste bin.”

"Nothing about the sound seems meagre or unbalanced. The maximum possible volume levels are flawless [...].“

"The solid outdoor speaker even did well with „Twisted“ by Svenson & Gielen with a truly good ambiance and pleasantly rounded sound. Even when one sits at some distance from the ROCKSTER XS, a respectable ambiance can be discerned. The ROCKSTER XS does a good job capturing smaller dynamic differences [...].“

"All-in-all [...] a very commendable presentation. The ROCKSTER XS reveals itself to be a travel-ready 'Beat Machine,' suitable for a spontaneous trance party at Baggersee or a sudden rock even at the Brandenburger Tor. The ROCKSTER XS had another opportunity to show its musical talent with „Reflect“ from Thee’N’One where a truly free treble range manifested itself. The powerful beat and compellingly expansive effects, which exceed expectations for this sort of loudspeaker, are additional plus points.”

"Whoever pairs two ROCKSTER XS’s like we did, enjoys an authentic stereo sound.  With “Dangerous” from Within Temptation, it’s even possible to use two of these little sound machines as a primary stereo system, such as in a studio apartment or in a smaller living room. Power, force, ambience and clarity leave nothing to be desired. Even the trance hit “Raptor” from Digital X is played back with a flawless dynamic. The bass range is everything other than expressionless and flabby. A good amount of energy is set free here.”

"Regarding the achievable levels from both ROCKSTER XS’s in the pairing mode, we can say the following: ‘Hat’s off! Respect!’ One can hear levels that many micro stereo systems can’t achieve. Even calmer, more emotional titles like Shirley Bassey’s “Moonraker,” are wonderfully well suited to the stereo playback.“

Conclusion:

"A real party starter from Berlin: The little ROCKSTER clearly looks up to its big brother and not only features a pleasantly robust construction and high level of workmanship and quality materials, but also a pleasant sound, powerful bass, dynamics and vocal playback, definition and ambience – everything is above average. The battery runtime is great and in the upper midrange, the fact that two ROCKSTER XS’s can be paired for authentic stereo playback is an additional advantage of the splash-proof ROCKSTER XS.”

"The ROCKSTER XS was awarded first place in a comparison test with the KEF MUO, earning an overall score of 2.18 (good)."
Audio Video Foto BILD 04|2016
"The little Teufel is like a wild rock star, playing more powerfully than with restraint. It still manages to sound pleasantly full.  Hip-hop beats and electronic music, in particular, are pleasantly reproduced by the warmly tuned loudspeaker. It plays back bass that is deep, full and quite clean; the treble is pleasantly crisp [...].“

“Those who like to listen to music while traveling should definitely get hold of a ROCKSTER [XS]: It has more stamina, is more robust and can even charge a smartphone.”

The ROCKSTER XS was awarded first place in a comparison test with the KEF MUO, earning an overall score of 2.18 (good).

ROCKSTER XS (2016) review of www.allround-pc.com
"The sound is detailed and reveals a strong bass foundation with very stable levels."
www.allround-pc.com 22.12.2015
"Teufel’s ROCKSTER XS is suitable for everyone who spends a lot of time outdoors and is looking for a robust as well as powerful Bluetooth speaker. The sound is detailed and reveals a strong bass foundation with very stable levels. The user interface makes it possible to control the system directly on the loudspeaker. We like that Teufel thought of a stereo jack socket. In this way, even devices without Bluetooth can be connected to the ROCKSTER XS.”

ROCKSTER XS (2016) review of www.teltarif.de
"[T]he Teufel ROCKSTER XS unfolds a magnificence of sound and a volume that one wouldn’t expect from a loudspeaker of this size and price class."
www.teltarif.de 26.12.2015
“In its indoor mode, the Teufel ROCKSTER XS plays music not only more softly, but with also markedly more bass, which is a lot of fun with various styles of music (rock, pop, techno). With classical music and orchestral film soundtracks, we found it, however, to be somewhat unsuitable and therefore switched to the outdoor mode.“

“Here the Teufel ROCKSTER XS unfolds a magnificence of sound and a volume that one wouldn’t expect from a loudspeaker of this size and price class. The sound is very differentiated, even the finest details can be discerned. If you turn your smartphone as well as the loudspeaker to the highest volume setting, the sound is loud without being harsh, tinny or distorted.”

Conclusion:

“The Teufel ROCKSTER XS blows every internal smartphone loudspeaker out of the water .Thanks to an aluminium enclosure and silicone rings, it can also withstand a few less-than-gentle bumps. The sound is rich, especially with pop and rock music. [...] Its ease of use and simple controls should be lauded.”

ROCKSTER XS (2016) review of www.newgadgets.de
"One immediately notices not only the beautifully clear treble but also the correspondingly voluminous bass foundation, which is really impressive for a device of this size."
www.newgadgets.de 14.12.2015
"It can be placed vertically as well as horizontally and looks good in either position. The slightly cool enclosure made from black aluminium gives the device a premium look that is nicely robust. The front grille is adorned with attractive details in the form of a generously placed company logo and a red decorative strip. The top and bottom are completely rubberized. This gives the device a firm footing and a good grip.”

“All of the buttons offer firm and clear pressure points.“

"The ROCKSTER XS also knows how to please when it comes to sound. One immediately notices not only the beautifully clear treble but also the correspondingly voluminous bass foundation, which is really impressive for a device of this size. Even the midrange frequencies are targeted in such a way that even sudden impulses evince a harmonic sound image that is maintained. The lower frequencies underscore the sound image amazingly well and abundantly, even the lowest volume levels, something that is, unfortunately, not to be taken for granted with this sort of loudspeaker. The ROCKSTER XS proves itself to be a good all-rounder in other respects as well, one that can handle all standard musical genres. [...]  The highest volume level is completely sufficient; even our 23 m² large test room could be filled with sound by a speaker this size."

Conclusion:

"The audio smiths from Berlin have successfully constructed a companion for on the go that can be recommended, one that not only sports A1 workmanship, but also a very pleasant look. It only remains to be said that the design is a real eye catcher and it definitely rocks. But the device not only looks good, it has a convincing sound. This is very clear with an amazingly strong bass and good balance at every volume level.”

"The technicians at Teufel do, in fact, deserve praise for the amount of bass power they managed to squeeze into the little ROCKSTER XS.”
www.ubergizmo.com 24.11.2015
"The sides of the speaker are slip-proof thanks to a silicone covering. It’s splash proof and impact resistant. All-in-all, it makes a very high-end impression, is robust and perfect for outdoor use.“

"The ROCKSTER XS’s bass and treble dominated during the listening test. The technicians at Teufel do, in fact, deserve praise for the amount of bass power they managed to squeeze into the little ROCKSTER XS.”

Help regarding this product
My Bluetooth speaker produces a lesser quality sound with my Windows PC or laptop.
It could be that the speaker is connected as a device with speakerphone function. Please go to: settings menu > devices and printer > BOOMSTER (or other Bluetooth device). Right click on the device and remove the check mark next to the “speakerphone” option.
Which components do I need to expand my stereo system to a surround system?
Next to additional speakers (centre, rear, R/L, active subwoofer), you will need the following devices:

• Television: A conventional TV set will suffice. Naturally, devices with a 16:9 format are recommended for playing back DVDs.

• AV surround Receiver: This multichannel amplifier with integrated radio and decoder for Dolby Digital/DTS replaces the stereo amplifier. As minimum equipment, the device should have power amplifiers with approx. 5 x 40 watt output.

• DVD player: This devices supplies the video and audio signals, plays back a number of digital formats, also plays music CDs and MP3 files and is connected to the receiver.
Can I order the Teufel speakers in different colours than those offered?
To realise the very reasonable sales prices usual for Teufel, it is not possible to offer the speakers in a multitude of housing designs.

This circumstance would drive up the production and storage costs, which would result in a significantly more expensive sales price.

A paint shop in your vicinity will surely be able to repaint the speaker housing to your preferred colour without loss of warranty - after expiry of the eight-week right of return.
