Not too long after the introduction of the Outcast the company followed up its successful launch with its smaller, more cost friendly Outcast Jr., which also received acclaim from dealers and consumers.
Now Soundcast is back and set to introduce a new product — the VG1 Bluetooth-enabled portable waterproof speaker.
The speaker will make its public debut on Nov. 2 at the International Pool, Spa and Patio Expo in New Orleans. It was designed to offer users a portable, waterproof speaker they can useboth indoors and outdoors.
“We've spent a lot of time speaking with customers, studying this competitive market, and identified a need for a waterproof speaker that doesn't sacrifice sound quality,” says Charity Hardwick, vice president of sales and marketing, Soundcast. “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.”
Internally, the VG1 incorporates 2-inch drivers with neodymium magnets, a rear-firing low-frequency radiator and digital signal processing (DSP) all within a one-pound package.
Soundcast says its latest speaker works with Apple's Siri voice-control platform to provide hands-free operation and includes a built-in microphone to use for applications such as conference calls.
The VG1 also includes on-board volume controls, pause/play controls and a built-in battery that enables the powered speaker to play for as many as 15 hours.
The VG1's Bluetooth range supports distances as far as 30 feet. It's available for pre-order at a price of $150.
