A few days ago we announced that iLuv Creative Technology had just introduced two new docking speaker systems for the Apple iPad (the iMM514 Art Station Pro and the iMM727 Art Station), as well as a speaker dock specifically designed for Samsung’s range of Galaxy Tab tablets. Today however we have news for those of you that are perhaps looking to buy a Bluetooth speaker dock.
According to a recent article by Amar Toor over on the engadget.com website, Soundfreaq has recently unveiled its new Sound Step and Sound Step Recharge compact Bluetooth speaker docks. What’s great about these two speaker docks — which feature a pair of 2-inch drivers and a single 3-inch driver – is the fact that they are compatible with all iOS, Android and BlackBerry devices.
The docking systems also come with a USB charging port, which means that users will be able to charge up multiple USB-chargeable devices while listening to their favorite tunes. The docks are only 3.6-inches tall, making them the ideal buy for those of you that are limited for space. The Sound Step Recharge model comes with a built-in rechargeable battery that is said to provide up to six hours usage.
Both the Sound Step and the Sound Step Recharge wireless speaker docks come with a 2.1 speaker configuration, a dedicated sub-woofer and the company’s proprietary UQ3 spacial sound enhancement, which will deliver natural bass and stereo separation. Not only do the Sound Step speakers offer a dock for the Apple iPhone and iPod Touch, but it also features the ability to dock and charge an iPad even when it’s in a case.
The Sound Step speaker docks feature a low-profile design and a battery option, making them a versatile speaker for anywhere around the home and office. It’s not just about music either, as the Sound Step speaker docks will also deliver crystal clear audio when watching TV shows, movies and video clips, playing games, listening to Internet radio or simply using your applications.
Users also have the option of downloading the free Soundfreaq iOS app, which will turn their iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad into the ultimate remote control. What’s even more interesting is the fact that the Sound Step speaker docks are also designed for future devices with Bluetooth capabilities. Both the Sound Step and the Sound Step Recharge will be available from Target and Amazon.com.
The Sound Step has been given an MSRP of $139, while the Sound Step Recharge is priced up at $159. Would you buy either of these Soundfreaq speaker docks?
