Check out our review of the Native Untion Switch bluetooth speaker.
Amid flurry of Bluetooth speakers that made an appearance at this year’s CES, Native Union debuted the Switch, a brick-shaped Bluetooth speaker that focuses on style and ease of use. The device features LED indicators for at-a-glance battery-checks, among other intuitive features, and is the company’s first portable, Bluetooth-enabled speaker.
Switch is powered by three drivers and features an active subwoofer, which is pretty impressive for the $150 price tag. It sports a pretty resilient battery as well, and plays for 14 hours at a clip.
In a feature that’s become standard with Bluetooth speakers, Native Union’s newbie can also handle conference calls, but it’s perhaps better suited to do so than most thanks to a full-duplex microphone, which lets parties on both end of the line speak simultaneously.
The brick-like design can be either lay down or stand up, and comes in either rubberized or gloss finishes, in a variety of colors that include slate, bordeaux, aquamarine, white or black.
Native Union will begin selling the Switch in spring 2013.
