The new black Clarity HD Precision Micro Bluetooth Speaker (SRP: $119.95) offers portable listening and speakerphone capabilities for use with Blackberry devices, smartphones and notebook PCs. It is scheduled for delivery in September 2010.
It debuts under Monster's new Clarity HD sub-brand line, along with the iClarity, specifically designed for iPhone compatibility. The Clarity HD Precision Micro Bluetooth Speaker is an ultra-compact listening solution delivering crystal clear Bluetooth 2.0 audio, which combines with advanced Monster audio and digital signal processing for clean, best-in-class wireless stereo sound. Astoundingly, the speakers literally fit in the palm of your hand. In addition, built-in microphones allow for hands-free dialing and advanced Lithium Ion batteries provide up to 5 hours of quality listening on a single charge. Thanks to the built-in noise-canceling microphone, with conference calling and speakerphone capabilities, both models are ideal for instant conference calls, voice/video chats on Skype®, or hands-free calls.
With a range of up to 33 feet, the Bluetooth speakers deliver powerful, room-filling stereo sound that belies their small size. The enhanced audio is made possible through the inclusion of the company's innovative dual 35 mm full-range driver and passive radiator subwoofer design for sonic clarity and powerful bass response.
Their ultra-compact form factor of the Clarity HD Bluetooth speakers also makes them perfect travel companions, as the wireless connectivity allows users to move around freely with their Blackberry® or laptop computers. Wireless music streaming is made possible by Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP). For total user flexibility, the speakers may also be used with a wired connection using a standard 3.5 mm headphone port, which is ideal for products that do not have Bluetooth support such as smartphones or laptops.
Head Monster Noel Lee noted: “One of the main goals of our new Clarity HD product family is to literally open people's ears to the possibility of truly great sounding music from some unexpected sources. That's exactly how most people feel, for instance, when they hear our wireless Bluetooth speakers for the first time — it just doesn't seem possible that such powerful sounding music could be emanating from such a tiny source!”
