What better way to celebrate Star Wars Day than to offer your clients an array of Star Wars-inspired wireless loudspeakers. This eclectic array of speakers will allow CE pros to definitely tell clients “May the 4th be with you,” on Star Wars Day.
Integrators can offer speakers that mimic Darth Vader's helmet, a Stormtrooper's helmet, the top of R2D2 and a miniature Death Star to tickle the fancy of their Star Wars fanbase clientele.
While these speakers are certainly not targeted at custom electronics professionals, they certainly can act as an icebreaker as a giveaway or a portable add-on sale for a full whole-house audio system.
So, why not have a little fun... and at the same time open up the imagination of your clients into just how engaging audio can be. Perhaps even showcasing one of these Star Wars speakers opens up the door for a conversation on some of the magnificent designs available from high-end quality speakers in the market.

Several of these Bluetooth-enable speakers are life-size (in the case of the Stormtrooper and Darth Vader) or scaled down versions. Some cute gimmicks include the ability for the speaker to speak to the homeowner in Darth Vader's voice and even glowing red LEDs for the eyes.
All of the speakers are officially licensed. In some cases, the units also allow the homeowner to answer the phone and make hands-free phone calls via the speaker. Rechargeable battery packs enable the devices to be portable.
Of course, don't expect audiophile sound from these devices. Among the online reviews of one of the speakers is the quote: "Clean design, but sound quality is mediocre. But then again, I bought it for the design not the audio feature."
These super cool portable devices and can be the perfect travel companion for your clients, even if they are "far, far away" from home.
OK... now back to work everyone!
