Bose SoundLink Air Digital System & Bluetooth Mobile Speaker II Announced
Bose has introduced two new SoundLink wireless speakers - the SoundLink Air digital music system, its first-ever Apple-enabled product, and the SoundLink Bluetooth Mobile Speaker II, an update of the original and now iconic SoundLink Mobile speaker.
SoundLink Air digital music system
A one-piece wireless speaker system that streams audio from an iPad, iPhone, iPod touch or a computer's iTunes library via Apple's AirPlay technology and a Wi-Fi network, it requires no docking, so owners can maintain full control of their Apple device, including browsing, texting, or making calls, all while enjoying audio from a compact AirPlay-enabled system. Users have two options for control of basic functions, either the Apple iOS device or an included infrared remote. It also offers an aux-in to connect to other audio devices and an optional rechargeable lithium-ion battery. The system also comes incorporated with proprietary Bose acoustic waveguide speaker technology, neodymium transducers, and Bose digital signal processing.
SoundLink Bluetooth Mobile Speaker II
First introduced in 2011, the Mobile speaker is designed to work with most Bluetooth-enabled devices, including the iPhone, iPad, Android phones, and other tablets. With improved full-range audio, the Mobile speaker II includes new neodymium transducers and an updated digital signal processing algorithm into the acoustics package. Thanks to the patented dual-opposing passive radiators, it reproduces deeper low notes, and more definition and clarity across mid and high frequencies. Featuring a new integrated leather or nylon bi-fold protective cover that also serves as the speaker's stand, the six most recently used Bluetooth devices are stored in memory, so you won't have to go through the trouble of pairing them again. Also, it is capable of streaming music while you email, text, or browse the web.
The new SoundLink Air digital music system is now available from Atlas Sound & Vision for S$759.
The SoundLink Bluetooth Mobile Speaker II with Nylon cover or Leather cover is available at S$499 and S$589 respectively.
