Soundfreaq Shows Sneak Peek of 2014 Limited Edition Line of Speakers Designed by HGTV's The Novogratz
JANUARY 2, 2014 - CES LAS VEGAS (North Hall, Booth 6028) - Soundfreaq, maker of the critically acclaimed line of wireless speakers, introduces a suite of products at CES 2014 / CES Unveiled including Pocket Kick, an ultra-portable version of Soundfreaq's award-winning Bluetooth speaker, Sound Kick; a new version of Sound Rise, a modern Bluetooth bedroom speaker and alarm clock and Double Spot, a mid-century modern inspired stereo speaker designed for the home.
"All of us at Soundfreaq are music lovers with a very straight-forward approach to our craft: create products with great sound, great design and great value," said Matthew Paprocki, co-founder/creative director of Soundfreaq. "We are proud to introduce our 2014 product line that delivers sound crafted audio with modern design to bring more music into people's lives."
Pocket Kick takes Soundfreaq's award-winning Sound Kick, which was named "Overall Best of Show" by iLounge at CES 2012 and makes it even more portable. Pocket Kick delivers impressive sound for its small size that's surprisingly loud, full and clear. Pocket Kick is constructed with a steel grill on the front and back for optimized air flow for high-end sound to pass through the front, and lower frequencies from the passive bass radiator to be kicked out of the back.
Pocket Kick streams music via Bluetooth, has a built-in rechargeable battery for up to 10 hours of playtime and a built-in microphone, making it easy to take calls wirelessly. Pocket Kick also includes line in for any device with a 3.5mm headphone jack and charges via a micro USB charging port. It also comes with a lanyard for easy carrying while on-the-go. Pocket Kick will be available in the late spring for $99.
Sound Rise, an updated version of Soundfreaq's original bedroom speaker, maintains the same comforting features found in old-school alarm clocks, with much improved functionality and added features to complement today's modern lifestyle. Sound Rise streams audio via Bluetooth and is equipped with a USB power port, making it compatible with today's and tomorrow's smartphones. Sound Rise also offers a dual alarm clock and adjustable display settings that range from extra bright to black-out. Sound Rise is meticulously crafted with an upright design to reduce the size of its footprint and a custom font that optimizes readability without filling a room with excess light.
Sound Rise continues to deliver Soundfreaq's impressive audio quality, making it the perfect bedroom speaker for enhancing any entertainment experience so users can experience rich, detailed audio from their favorite apps all from the comfort of their bed. Sound Rise will be available in April 2014 for $69.
Double Spot is Soundfreaq's new wireless home speaker with a mid-century modern design inspiration that balances sound output and clarity of larger systems with a modest footprint. Double Spot's easy-to-use features combined with its footprint and design aesthetic makes it the one speaker everyone needs. Double Spot delivers rich and powerful sound, crafted with custom designed stereo drivers and optimized power for maximum distortion-free volume. To complement listeners' musical taste, Double Spot offers Tone Control, which allow users to select from three preferred equalization presets: flat, warm or bright and Soundfreaq's UQ3™ spatial sound enhancement, providing music lovers with an immersive listening experience.
Double Spot streams music via Bluetooth, is built with a USB power port for quick and easy phone charging and offers line in for any device with a 3.5mm headphone jack. Double Spot will be available this summer for $119. For consumers who wish to make Double Spot portable, an optional seven-hour battery will be sold for $39, making it convenient to move from room to room. In select retailers, Double Spot will be available with a pre-installed battery for $149.
At CES 2014, Soundfreaq will also be showing a sneak peek of the 2014 Novogratz Collection for Soundfreaq, the second collection of a limited edition line of speakers designed by HGTV's Robert and Cortney Novogratz. Soundfreaq first partnered with The Novogratz in October 2012 to create a line of speakers that combined The Novogratz' unique fashion forward design concepts with Soundfreaq's highly praised line of Bluetooth speakers to serve the style conscious, sound savvy music lover.
