Just a few weeks back we were patting some Anycom speakers on the back for being the first to play songs wirelessly via Bluetooth, and now BenQ wants a share of the plaudits with this ‘Mobile Sound Set’.

The IMS-100 supports one of our favourite acronyms, A2DP, which means it can pick up songs thrown through the air from your phone – as long as it supports the profile, like the Moto V3x – and play them aloud via its speakers.

Your PC will also be able to play songs wirelessly via Bluetooth or the included line-in cable, and there’s a microphone to let you hold telephone conferences: handy if you don’t have a sat-nav that can do the job in your car.

Although it works with any A2DP phones, such as those from Samsung and LG, BenQ is clearly hoping that you’ll pair it with one of its compatible numbers like the S88. Check out the link below for a complete list of potential A2DP chums for the IMS-100s.
