Summer’s here, which means that you’ll be looking at the great ‘Indoors’ with a newfound reverence. And while you spend time in the hallowed indoors, Harman has a few, nay two ways to make your time worthwhile.
Beauty in Black
Akin to the gloriousness of a phoenix that’s risen from it’s ashes, the charmingly compact Harman Kardon’s Onyx Studio 2 is a good-looking and good-sounding speaker. A bit pricey at Rs.34,990 the Onyx puts out a size-defying output and charms you with it’s polished looks.
While a standard AUX cable option prevails, you can easily play the cool cat via its Bluetooth connectivity option. Throw in call handling capabilities and you have a winner at hand. There’s a white colour option too, just incase black is not your colour. Classy, sophisticated-design and good audio output with Bluetooth compatibility - a trifecta that’s hard to beat for the price.
All charged up
If you’re aware of just how impressive the JBL Charge series of portable bluetooth speakers are, you definitely won’t be disappointed with the Charge 2+. Hanging on to the nostalgic and hugely popular can-shaped design, the waterproof Charge 2+ exudes ruggedness. According to JBL, you can clean the Charge 2+ by placing it under running water, just don’t submerge it (we all have limits, silly). A solid exterior construction with Bluetooth compatibility that allows for voice handling capabilities, the Charge 2+ can also back up as a power bank and offer your smartphone or tablet a much needed boost. The 6000mAh battery on board allows for a playtime of up to 12 hours. There’s even a built-in noise and echo cancellation feature that lets you make and take calls like a boss. All in all, perfect for those pool party scenarios. We can’t help you out with getting invited to one. Sorry.
Shying away from the sun or heading out to the beach, that’s entirely your call. But no matter what you do, head out to Harman’s website and please don’t stop the music!
