DAY 5 – SPEAKERS
BOSE SOUNDLINK COLOUR – $179
Bose knows a thing or two about high quality audio and they’ve taken that knowledge and applied it to the new Soundlink Colour Bluetooth speaker,
Available in blue, red, green, black and white, Bose Soundlink Colour weighs just 570g so it can go anywhere with you.
The device links wirelessly with your smartphone or tablet to stream your music with a surprisingly high quality for a speaker of this size and price.
NUDE AUDIO SUPER M – $129
The Nude Audio Super M is not only a wireless speaker, it is also waterproof so you can take it with you by the pool, to the beach or in the shower.
The speaker is about 13cm long and just 2.8cm thick so its small enough to take with you and also comes with a built-in cord so you can hang it anywhere.
But despite the flat shape of the device, the Nude Audio Super M still manages to pack in four full range drivers and two passive subwoofers for a sound that will impress.
BANG & OLUFSEN BEOPLAY A2 – $479
Bang & Olufsen is known for its unique style and design and that’s exactly what they’ve brought to the table with the BeoPlay A2.
The speaker offers True360 omni-directional technology so it sounds good no matter where you’re sitting in the room.
It has a leather strap handle so it’s easy to carry from room to room.
And as an added bonus the USB port on the device can also recharge your smartphone as well.
SAMSUNG M7 MULTIROOM SPEAKER – $499
Samsung’s M7 is the company’s first major entry into the wireless multiroom speaker space and gives listeners complete control of the music and other audio sources.
Apart from your own music you also access music services like Pandora, Spotify and Deezer and control everything from the iOS or Android app.
And on the audio side – they really deliver.
