While I was at CES a few weeks ago, I was invited to the Techlicious #TechTea event at Caesar’s Palace. The event is for technologically savvy moms to learn about new and engaging products that are family friendly and mom-centric. We learned a lot about products from TiVo, Radio Shack, and Beam Technologies, just to name a few. One of the products I couldn’t wait to get my hands on was the Philips Sound Shooter Wireless Portable Speaker, which uses Bluetooth technology so that you can enjoy music anywhere you are. When I saw it, it had me at hello.
Fast forward to this week when the products were sent to us, and low and behold, I got to have a Philips Sound Shooter Wireless Portable Speaker of my very own. I couldn’t wait to open the box and test out the sounds myself.
It was pretty easy to pair the speaker with my phone, and within minutes, I was listening to the sounds of Rihanna, Musiq Soulchild, The Lumineers, and Fun. The sounds quality is amazing! For it to be such a small speaker (it’s 68mm x 81mm and weighs just 0.14 kg), it really packs a punch. And for you bassheads, it serves up pretty of boom for your room!
The Philips Sound Shooter Wireless Portable Speaker charges via USB and can play up to 8 hours on its own. If you don’t want to use Bluethooth, you can hook your phone up with the Aux-in link (where your headphones go) and listen to it that way. The speaker also features echo and noise cancellation and can go up to 33 feet away (with line of site) from your paired device.
It retails for $49.95 and comes in a variety of colors including orange, lime, and blue.
What I most like about this speaker is I can take it with me when I travel. When I’m in the hotel room getting ready or even relaxing, I love listening to music. This little speaker won’t take up too much space in my Digital Debutante backpack, and will give me the ability to get my jam on when I’m on the road.
