NYNE, a company that specialises in lifestyle oriented speakers, have brought their line of speakers here to Singapore after their unveil at CES 2014.
There are four models in total, from the slightly portable NYNE Bass to the ultraportable NYNE Mini. With a wide range of colours and some far out designs, they’ll definitely be more hip than your typical grey box of a speaker. Because looks are everything now, right?
NYNE Bass (S$359)
The NYNE Bass is the company’s largest speaker of the bunch, measuring 13.5 x 7 x 6.25 inches. Not exactly what you’d call portable, but it does comes with a hidden carrying handle, making it somewhat easier to lug around.
It features 20 watts of output power, 10-hour battery life, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, and a built-in microphone, making it good for just about anything. The best part is, it even has a 4400mAh battery that you can use to charge your mobile device.
NYNE TT (S$299)
The TT is what NYNE calls its travel speaker. Armed with a 16-watt output, the TT also comes with Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and a built-in microphone.
What makes the TT different though, are its travel features. It has its own easy-to-transport carrying case with a shoulder strap, allowing you to carry it like a handbag, should that appeal to you, and an international AC adapter with four international plugs. Similar to the Bass, it has an internal battery (2200mAh) to charge your mobile device, and can play up to 10 hours of music.
NYNE Cruiser (S$159)
This 10-watt speaker was designed with the biker in mind. Its handlebar clip allows users to mount the speaker on everything from bike handlebars to exercise machines, and even baby strollers. Junior's gotta have his tunes, right?
With NFC and Bluetooth 4.0 it’ll definitely be able to connect to any smartphone with ease. And with four colours to choose from, you can’t say it’s boring.
NYNE Mini (S$99)
Good things come in small packages, and the NYNE Mini tries to do just that. This 5-watt speaker, unlike the other three NYNEs, doesn’t come with NFC. Neither does it have Bluetooth 4.0, opting for a Bluetooth 2.1 connection instead. It does have a built-in microphone though, and a choice of 4 colours. It's also the most portable of the bunch.
All the NYNE speakers come with a one year warranty and are available now.
