Audio technology company Libratone is launching three new portable wireless speakers to its existing more home focused range in a range of new Scandinavian inspired colours.
Coming in Graphite Grey, Cloudy Grey and a vibrant Caribbean Green all units are brand new for 2016 and are available from today.
The Libratone One Click is a mighty speaker that packs a punch visually with the rugged exterior, multiple accessories ports and rubber siding — perfect for the more active user. Future accessories will be announced later in the year but expect wall suckers, mounts and other usual suspects.
The second unit, the Libratone One Style, is more for the home user who is style conscious and likes simplicity and clean lines. At 12cm by 4.1cm by 20.5cm, both units easily fit into any rucksack or laptop bag and are perfect for outdoor use. The Libratone One Style comes with a finger loop that enables it to be hung in various places.
The Libratone Too is completely different. The more rounded, smaller design looks like an oversized bean sack with a strap, but boasts two 1.5-inch full range drivers.
All units feature the same unique dial design to control playback, volume and pairing using Bluetooth. Users also can use the dedicated mobile app to further fine tune playback with various modes that cater to different music types.
All units are splash-proof, can take a beating, last for more than 12 hours of playback on a full charge (via microUSB) and also act as a speakerphone if desired.
You can use each of the units individually or as a group with the easy pairing functionality via the mobile app.
The speakers are available on Libratone’s official site from US$149 for the Too, and another US$50 for the One variants. There’s no word on South African availability.
