Harman Kardon’s new NEO portable Bluetooth speaker offers quality and durability

If you’re after portable Bluetooth speaker with quality sound with a waterproof design then you should check out the new Harman Kardon NEO that fits in the palm of your hand.

This latest addition to the Harman Kardon line-up, the NEO Bluetooth portable speaker is just 11cm wide and 3.4cm thick so you can easily take it anywhere with you.

And despite its small size it can still deliver impressive audio quality when streaming music from your smartphone.

Under the hood is a 40mm transducer to deliver 3W RMS.

NEO also has Bluetooth 4.2 onboard so you can easily pair your device for solid and clear connectivity and quality.

It is rated IPX7 which means its waterproof so there’s no need to worry about taking it to the beach, by the pool or on a camping trip.

Neo is made from durable metal and can handle the bumps and scrapes.

The speaker can also handle all of your calls as well so it can used as a hands-free kit for your smartphone.

And calls are clear through the Neo thanks to the echo-cancelling clear speakerphone.

The rechargeable battery will offer up to 10 hours playback – long enough to last a whole day out.

“The launch of the Harman Kardan NEO to Australia showcases our commitment to providing our customers with the most innovative products that fit within their specific lifestyles,” says Harman brand activation director ANZ Marcus Fry.

“Where the Citation range is the perfect system for your home, the compact NEO is the perfect travel or home office companion with 2 colours to fit every household, music lover and adventurer.”

The Harman Kardon NEO is available in two colours – blue and brown – and is priced at $169.95.
