SOL REPUBLIC is one of those brands we are fans of here at G Style Magazine, so whenever they have a new gadget out, we pay attention. A couple weeks back we had a meeting with SOL REPUBLIC and they introduced us to the new PUNK wireless speaker. Initial thoughts was wow such great big sound from such a tiny speaker. The PUNK is looking like the product for you to listen to your music on the go, without worrying about damaging it. The PUNK launches today and will retail for $69.99. You can get one from places like Best Buy (see link below), RadioShack, SOL REPUBLIC.com and some other retailers. While we definitely like what we heard during our meeting with SOL REPUBLIC, we’ll be reviewing it in details shortly. So stay tuned for more on the PUNK. See the press release below for more.
This new device also expands on a movement that Sol Republic has been building and now ready for the world to take part in. SOL REPUBLIC’s mantra is “Music Made Me Do It”. What has music made you do?
San Francisco, CA – September 23, 2014: Committed to changing the world one listener at a time, SOL REPUBLIC announces PUNK, its ultra-portable, rugged and surprisingly loud Bluetooth speaker that fits in the palm of your hand. Beware of PUNK because it’s smaller, tougher and louder than you would expect. Play it everywhere and take it anywhere. PUNK is fearless. It’s not afraid of a little water, dirt, or getting kicked around and it’s gutsy enough to play music really, really loud.
PUNK is water, shock and dust resistant, so it’s tough enough to survive being tossed and tumbled in your bag, rugged enough to enhance a bike trek through the mountains, and loud enough to be heard over the sound of crashing waves. With eight hours of battery life (50% more than the other speakers its size), you will need to recharge before PUNK will. An impressive 60-foot wireless range, which is twice as far as most speakers this size, means you’re ditching the cords and can change up a song from anywhere in the room, around the pool or down the field. SOL REPUBLIC’s small-but-mighty PUNK breaks all the rules of what’s possible from a tiny speaker.
“People want wireless speakers that are so small they can fit in the palm of your hand and you can take them anywhere. The problem has been that speakers that small aren’t very loud,” said Kevin Lee, SOL REPUBLIC co-founder and CEO. “That’s why we developed PUNK, which is 75% more powerful than other palm-sized wireless speakers and it’s tough enough to throw in your bag and go with you anywhere.”
Pumping nearly twice the power than any other wireless speaker this small, PUNK maintains SOL REPUBLIC’s signature sound with accurate, even sound and bass that’s so deep you can feel it. PUNK lets music be heard and felt, so blast your favorite songs because when music sounds better, it feels better. PUNK also has easy-to-use, yet subtle controls, and a versatile quarter-inch threaded mount so you can attach the speaker to a variety of bike and camera mounts.
SOL REPUBLIC’s PUNK can do more than just provide the soundtrack to an impromptu hangout with friends or a pick-up two-on-two hoops game. It’s also equipped with line-in and line-out ports, making it easy to connect it to non-Bluetooth™ devices. Connect PUNK to your home or car stereo via the 3.5mm jack and it becomes your Bluetooth hub enabling you to control any stereo wirelessly.
PUNK is offered in seven colors: Black, Horizon Blue, Fluoro Red, Cargo, Navy, Lemon Lime and Ion Green. PUNK is available now for $69.99 at Best Buy, RadioShack, SOLREPUBLIC.com and other leading retailers.
