If hadn’t received a Bluetooth speaker as a gift, I probably would have never discovered their convenience. There are more and more Bluetooth mobile speakers available these days, and they are costing less and less, making them a suitable purchase or gift for anyone with a smartphone. Named for its shoe-like design, The Jabra Solemate is one of the latest bluetooth speakers to step onto the scene.
Measuring about 7.3″ x 5.1″ x 3.2″, and weighing 2.4 pounds, the Solemate bluetooth speaker is easy to carry, but substantial. It’s got an integrated subwoofer that designed to add as much bass as it can – for a speaker this size. Its built-in rechargeable battery will last for up to 8 hours of playback.
It also has DSP technology to optimize voices and suppress echoes. In addition to wireless connections, you can hook up devices via USB or the hidden 3.5mm audio cable hidden in its “sole.” It can function as a wireless speakerphone for your smartphone as well.
Jabra list priced the Solemate speaker at $199.99 (USD), but they are selling it for just $159.99 on Amazon, where it’s available in either white or black.
