If you believe that you can never have too many portable Bluetooth speakers in the market, then you’ll be happy to note that SoundCast, an OEM that focuses on high performance wireless audio systems, has just released their latest product and it is of that category. The VG1 is a speaker that not only boasts of high sound quality but also has shockproof and waterproof capabilities making it somewhat of a good fit both for indoor and outdoor use.
If you’re looking for colorful and decorative portable speakers, then the VG1 is definitely not it. It is traditional looking, in a sense of what speakers usually look like. It has premium 2” aluminum drivers, along with powerful neodymium magnets. SoundCast assures users of the speakers’ quality despite its size at just 1 lb. light, as it has a weighted bass radiator and uses digital sound processing. You will also be able to use it not just to listen to music with the speakers but also use it for conference calls since it has a built-in microphone.
In case you would want more than just one unit, the VG1 can be paired and connected with another unit, and they can connect and play at a 30 foot range. The rechargeable battery can last up to 15 hours, so it should have enough power for your backyard or poolside parties and even for your indoor purposes. “Applying Soundcast’s years of experience in design and engineering, we’ve created a beautiful and rugged portable high definition Bluetooth speaker that will be truly appreciated by the discerning ear,” said Charity Hardwick, vice president of sales and marketing.
The VG1 will be demoed and displayed at the International Pool, Spa, and Patio Expo this coming November 2 to 4. But it’s already currently available for pre-order through their website, gosoundcast.com, and it will cost you $149.99.
