A couple of months ago, I introduced you to the Sol Republic Deck Speaker!
Today, I have it's little brother, the Punk Speaker,
to share with you.
But do NOT be deceived, this speaker is not little, except in it's size!
As you can see, the Sul Repiblic Punk Speaker is hand held size, but it isdeceptively small, as it is rugged (water, shock and dust resistant), and ferociously loud! It even has a bottom bracket, to allow it to be screwed onto a bicycle, for on the go listening! It can be used with just about ANY music or stereo deivce, or phone (as long as it has a 3.5mm jack)!
And unlike other small Bluetooth speakers, it has EIGHT hours of battery life (50% more than the other speakers its size)! You know your teen or coed will LOVE that aspect! Plus you can hook up multiple Punk speakers together, and get even MORE sound- perfect for when there is a party!
But there is everything to love about the Punk Speaker!
The Punk Speaker comes complete is a lovely box for gift giving, with the charging USB cord, an in/out cable, to allow you to connect to non-Bluetooth devices and a quick start guide. In fact, it is almost plug and go! You just need to charge it, connect via Bluetooth and off you go!
The Punk fully charges in about 30 minutes, when it is first pulled out of the box, by using the included USB cord. It will show the red LED light while charging (bottom left). The Punk is super social and pairs easily with any Bluetooth enabled audio device. You just press the Bluetooth button for 2 seconds, the LED will flash blue, then open up your Bluetooth device settings and tell it to find the nearest Bluetooth device and then click on PUNK to link to the speaker. The LED now turns blue (looks purple above- it was the flourescent light). You can then wirelessly control the Punk from your device (up to 60 feet away). That's it! Easy Peasy!
If you don't have a Bluetooth device, you can still connect the Punk speaker to your home or car stereo, via the included 3.5mm jack. Crank up the volume and fill your room with sound or take the party outside. Your music will be heard LOUDLY, with it's 5.7 watts of amplified power!
This speaker is JUST as loud as it's big brother, and the loudest I've heard for such a small speaker! But it's not distorted- it is pure sound! You can control the volume with the plus (up) and minus (down) buttons on the speaker, or by your device's settings. It is amazing how much sounds comes from such a small device- technology really is wonderful these days!
With it's one year warranty, the Punk Speaker is also a great buy! You can purchase it at Best Buy in the 3 colors above, or other online outlets, to get the additional 4 colors (green, blue, tan or yellow).. It's perfect to surprise teens and coeds with this holiday season! And while I hate to say it, Christmas IS coming (ONLY 44 days to go! Go ahead- scream and go take a swig of coffee/tea/wine to calm down and come back)! It's also a great hostess present and perfect for that hard-to-buy for person!
I am SUPER excited that Sol Republic has allowed me to not only review the Punk speaker, but to GIVE ONE away too!
I heard you scream, yes I did!
You can knock a to-buy for present off your holiday list!
