JBL Headphones and Bluetooth Speakers

JBL Charge 2: Between the twin passive radiators for deep bass, the massive 6000mAh battery and the hands-free conference speakerphone the key benefit is the Bluetooth Social Mode which allows up to three different users to take their turns to play their own playlists on a single speaker.

JBL Flip 2: Aside from the dual performance-tuned JBL drivers and a built-in bass port, the key benefit of the JBL Flip 2 is the SoundClear echo and noise cancellation combined with the state-of the art microphone system to pick up calls on the speaker.

JBL Reflect Earbud headphones: Sweat proof ergonomic design. With a 5 hour rechargeable battery and a reach of about 40 feet, the JBL Reflect BT’s key benefit is the design of the ergonomic eartips along with the built-in magnets which keep your buds on standby without loose cables.

Stylish New Soundfreaq Sound Spot Bluetooth Speaker Looks As Great As It Sounds!

Some posts may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

I’m participating in this Holiday Tech Gift Idea project on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Soundfreaq. I received a Soundfreaq Sound Spot to facilitate my review.

I’m always a bit skeptical of cute little gadgets and whether they can really deliver the goods, but when I heard Daisy & I were going to be reviewing the new Sound Spot Speaker from Soundfreaq, I could hardly WAIT for it to arrive. I already knew about the impressive quality of their products from a previous review we did and this new little beauty did NOT disappoint!

It’s the Sound Spot Bluetooth Speaker from Soundfreaq. At $70, this little wireless speak packs a big punch when it comes to both sound AND style. It’s available in a variety of fun color options so you’re sure to find one to please even the pickiest person on your holiday gift list.

Great for everyone from your tweens and teens, to Mom or Dad. It’s super easy to use straight out of the box, and super portable, which I love since I listen to music everywhere! So far, I’ve paired it with my Samsung Galaxy S3 Android phone, my iPad, and my Windows 8 laptop. It works well with Pandora, iTunes, Spotify and every other music app you can think of, and I’m still amazed at the sound quality and volume level coming from this little cutie! Because it’s so portable, I put it in the bathroom while I’m doing my makeup and getting ready to go out…and then move it back to the living room, bedroom or my desk or wherever I want to use it next time.

Sound Spot is ready to bring anywhere you want, with its small size and built-in rechargeable Lithium-ion battery. It delivers up to 7 hours of listening when fully charged, and also includes a USB power port so you can charge your phone or other device, even while Sound Spot is running on battery power. This baby is simple to charge – just plug it directly into your computer or any powered USB port for quick and easy charging. I also like to use the wall charger that came with my phone and just plug it straight into a wall outlet.

I really love how well the Wood-White finish goes with our laid-back decor, but it also comes in several other modern color options that would be extremely CUTE in a teen’s room or college dorm. And you can get it in Black, which would be great for an office or Dad’s workshop…you can never go wrong with Black since it goes with everything!

Soundfreaq Sound Platform 2: Stream Great Sounding Wireless Audio from Your Favorite App and Device

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Soundfreaq. I received a Soundfreaq Sound Platform 2 to facilitate my revew.

Soundfreaq Sound Platform 2

Daisy and I have been busy testing out the cool new Soundfreaq Sound Platform 2. It’s a wireless Bluetooth speaker packed with features but super easy to use with just about any device you own, whether it’s Apple, Android or Windows. It comes with a simple setup guide about the size of a large postcard but I didn’t even need it. I took our new speaker straight out of the box, plugged in the power cord, and paired it immediately with my Samsung Galaxy S3 phone. It was as easy as using a Bluetooth hands-free device and in less than 3 minutes we had rich sounding audio…no cables or docking required!

The first thing I did was experiment with switching between all my favorite music apps as well as test out how easy it would be to switch between devices. On my phone, I usually use Pandora so we played around with that one first.  Since the Soundfreaq is wireless, and designed to work with just about any phone, tablet or PC out there, your smartphone or other Bluetooth device becomes the remote control. I love this because we’ve already got way too many remote controls to keep up with! And not having to dock my device on the system itself means I always have my phone with me. I can be working in the kitchen and still be totally in control of the music selection and sound level playing in the other room.

It works just as well with my iPad which is great because that’s my favorite way to access my iTunes library and also to watch movies on Netflix. And it’s also got an FM radio with fantastic reception…even better sounding than the satellite radio we used to have!

Since docking is not required, there are no compatibility issues. I love this because I think we’re all pretty sick of getting a great new device only to discover that our current accessories are now outdated and need to be replaced. If you do happen to have an older device that isn’t Bluetooth compatible, there is an AUX IN jack to connect any device with headphone or line out jack.
