BlueFlame Slingshot Bluetooth Speaker
The Slingshot from BlueFlame is a new, water-resistant, Bluetooth-enabled portable speaker for use just about anywhere you want sound. When it comes to waterside activities, mobile electronic devices generally don’t enjoy being splashed. The Slingshot is a durable, IPX4 water-resistant, compact convertible wireless speaker system that’s happy surfside, poolside, or wherever you go. Go ahead and sing along to your favorite songs in the shower, listen to the latest podcast, or make a hands and sand-free phone call at the beach, all with this one speaker. It easily syncs with Bluetooth-enabled devices via a long 33 foot (10 meter) wireless range and features a built-in microphone so you will never miss a call, or a tune.
At the heart of The Slingshot is its powerful, portable sound system. Its increased bass response and sonic radiator technology achieves a 100Hz – 10KHz frequency range. The speaker is secured in a comfort-carry, soft sling that can be hung from a showerhead or hook, and easily taken along whenever you and your sound want to go mobile. When you want to crank the activity level up a notch, pop The Slingshot speaker out of its comfort-carry sling and into a To Go Sling. BlueFlame’s To Go Sling features a snug, durable silicone sling with handles on each side and a convenient clip-through top. Take it along in a bag, on a boat, or clip it to a bike or stroller and take sound to go.

The Slingshot will be available in two models, one with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, MSRP $119.99, and the other powered by 4-AA batteries, MSRP $99.99. To Go Sling is sold separately for $19.99. All slings come in a variety of colors. The Slingshot will be available at all Verizon stores starting August 1, 2013 and at other retailers throughout the U.S.
