I like to listen to music while working. It motivates me and keeps me from getting restless. I don’t, however, listen to music as much as I’d like. I usually stream Pandora or iTunes from my laptop and plug in a clunky old speaker set that I purchased about 6 years ago (that actually looks like it belongs in the 90′s). The plug prongs are so thin that they don’t fit securely in the outlet, so I have to wiggle the plug and make sure I don’t bump it. Annoying!
Since I stream music from my laptop, doing so often gets in the way of the work I’m doing, and slows processes down. I’d rather just use another device for music. Oh yea, I can, but it still involves plugging up to those clunky speakers that can’t stay in the outlet. I’ve been in the market for a speaker system with Bluetooth capabilities and a few other bells and whistles. I had actually planned to treat myself for the holiday, but I had a little gem come my way. The Soundfreaq Sound Step Recharge. Score!
The Sound Step Recharge does some of everything. It uses Bluetooth to stream audio from any A2DP compatible device (iPhone, iPad, Android & more). It also has a dock to play music from (and charge) iPhone, iPad, and iPod devices. The Sound Step Recharge also turns into a radio tuner which is controlled through the SoundFreaq Remote app for iOs and Android.
While I don’t use the dock much, I am partial to streaming through Bluetooth as it allows for more flexibility. I love streaming audio from my Galaxy S3 to the snazzy little speaker system. The audio quality is great on my phone, but of course the Sound Step Recharge gives it some serious umph using it’s UQ3 spatial sound enhancement. Nothing beats authentic, crisp audio.
The Sound Step Recharge can be controlled through built-in control panel, included remote, docked device or Bluetooth enabled device. Sound Step Recharge also includes an AC adapter and built-in rechargeable battery that lasts up to 8 hours unplugged and features a USB power port for universal charging of any USB compatible devices. Oh, and it has a built-in Aux input enabling it to be used with any audio source with a headphone jack.
The Sound Step Recharge is versatile, compact, and super easy to use. All I could ask for in a speaker system. I made a little video using my Galaxy S3 to give an idea of how great the audio quality is. Check it out below :-).
