The PUNK is a new $70 rugged, ultra-portable Bluetooth speaker that plays surprisingly loud and fits in the palm of your hand. The PUNK by Sol Republic is water, shock and dust resistant, so it’s tough enough to survive being tossed and tumbled in your bag, durable 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. Plus, its 60-foot wireless range is twice as far as most speakers this size.
Sol Republic claims PUNK provides nearly twice the power than any other wireless speaker this small, with bass that’s deep enough to feel. 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 is 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.
