The problem with most speakers on mobile phones these days is that the minute you take it to a crowded or noisy environment, you can’t hear anything anymore. We suppose that’s what headphones are for, but if you’d rather have your music and videos blasting on speakers for your friends and family to enjoy, then perhaps portable speakers are the way to go.
Along with the announcement of the Nokia Lumia 530, Nokia took the wraps off a new set of portable speakers from Coloud. Dubbed the Bang mini speakers, as you can see in the image above, the speakers are almost half the size of the phone itself, meaning that you could slip it into your pocket just fine.
The speakers themselves are priced at a very affordable €19, meaning that it won’t be breaking the bank, unlike other portable speakers which could cost over $100. However it should be noted that the Bang speakers do not pair with smartphones via Bluetooth. Instead they will connect to your phone via the 3.5mm headphone jack.
They are expected to last for about 8 hours per charge and according to Nokia, users will be able to daisy-chain several of the Bang speakers together if you want to help bump up the volume. The Bang mini speakers are expected to be made available in the coming weeks.
