Soundfreaq shows off three new Bluetooth speakers at CES

In a world with seemingly endless choices when it comes to Bluetooth-enabled speakers, it takes a bit to stand out. Soundfreaq does just that, through stunning design and quality sound. At CES they introduced three new speakers and previewed the upcoming 2014 edition of their Novogratz collections. We had a chance to check them all out.

It starts with the Pocket Kick, a small, portable speaker that can shimmy into a back pocket without much hassle. Plus it boasts 10 hours of battery life. With Bluetooth and 3.5mm input and a microphone for instant speakerphone action, it’s not at all a bad deal for $99.

The Sound Rise is an update version of Soundfreaq’s first nightstand-oriented speaker mixes the classic bedroom alarm with modern wireless features. Somehow it manages to retain a retro look in the process. While it looks downright cool, perhaps the best feature is its $69 price tag. The Sound Ride will launch in April of this year.

Lastly we get the Double Spot, another retro-inspired speaker designed not as a portable but as a compact home stereo. Finishing touches include a 3.5mm input and USB port for device charging. A wired version will launch this summer for $119, though a battery pack will be available for $39 and provide 7 hours of use. A version with a built in battery will land at some retailers for $149.

Soundfreaq seems to know how to strike the balance between design, sound quality, and price, which makes them a promising contender against the likes of Jawbone’s Jambox and Jabra’s range of wireless units. We’ll be tracking down even more audio gear as we traverse the show floor hear at CES. Stay tuned.
