A favorite company of mine, Soundfreaq, has just launched the new Pocket Kick Bluetooth speaker. The Pocket Kick is the successor to the Sound Kick, the first Soundfreaq speaker I ever used. Though it’s similar in many ways, it changes things up by shrinking significantly and adding a longer lasting battery.
The little speaker is only 5.9×2.5×1.2 inches, so it fits easily into your pocket. Its rechargeable battery can provide up to 10 hours of music, which is fantastic for a tiny Bluetooth speaker, and Bluetooth 4.0 means your phone conserves battery as well. It even has a microphone for speakerphone capabilities.
The Pocket Kick is now available on Amazon for $99.99 in black. Platinum and gold will be released next week. I haven’t given it a shot yet, but Soundfreaq hasn’t disappointed me in the past. I’m very excited to get my hands on one. What do you think of the Pocket Kick? Will it be your next Bluetooth speaker? Leave a comment!Show Press Release
“Our goal with Pocket Kick was to design the best sounding, most practical speaker that you can keep by your side to enjoy and share more music in your day,” said Matthew Paprocki, co-founder/creative director of Soundfreaq. “While there are other ultra-portable speakers on the market, we’re confident that Pocket Kick’s sound offers detail, fullness and volume that is second to none, and that music lovers will find Pocket Kick the hands-down best speaker to keep your music always at-hand.”
Pocket Kick streams music via Bluetooth 4.0 and with its two custom drivers, pumps out impressive sound for its small size that’s surprisingly loud, full and clear. The ultra-compact speaker features a pair of custom engineered drivers and a passive radiator sandwiched between two full-metal, open air grills. Meticulously tuned, the design is optimized for airflow and projects full-frequency sound with lower frequencies kicked out the back.
To ensure a user’s listening experience can last all day while on-the-go, Pocket Kick is equipped with a rechargeable battery for up to 10 hours of playtime. It also has a built-in microphone, making it easy to take calls wirelessly. Pocket Kick includes a line-in jack for any device with a 3.5mm headphone jack and charges via a micro USB charging port, making it easy to charge regardless of your location. It also comes with a lanyard for carrying convenience.
Pocket Kick deviates from Soundfreaq’s more well-known design aesthetic of sharp right angles and edges. Abandoning the rigid geometry commonly found on other Soundfreaq’s products, Pocket Kick’s rounded edges allow the speaker to be more pocket and travel friendly.
