When it comes to selecting a portable speaker, there are dozens – nay, hundreds of options lying around, so the uninitiated might find it to be rather difficult in making the right choice. Well, you basically cannot go wrong when you stick to the tried and tested principle of “the more you pay, the better quality you’ll get”. Of course, it also does not hurt if the portable speaker that you’re about to purchase is also an International CES Innovations 2012 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree. Case in point, the Soma Stand and Soma Travel from XtremeMac.
These two iPod, iPhone and iPad audio solutions are said to deliver rich sound in a sleek and portable design, and best of all is, they’re already available in the US. First of all, the Soma Stand will come in a unique dock form factor that features a “fold n’ go” portable design, taking just three easy steps to complete. The dual ported speaker legs are able to expand for stability and deliver a stereo audio experience at the same time, while you get up to six hours of playtime with batteries.
As for the far lighter Soma Travel, this portable stereo speaker will come with “dock and play” power technology which will deliver music anytime, anywhere, without the need for batteries or an AC adapter. This is because your docked Apple device will be the one delivering the juice. The Soma Stand and Soma Travel will retail for $99.99 and $49.99, respectively.
