Kew Labs has released the K1 portable speaker, which combines an urban design with great sound quality in a compact and portable speaker that is ideal for warmer weather, outdoor parties and traveling. It’s available for $38.95 in black combined with yellow, red, grey or silver contrast from Amazon.

The K1 speaker features 10Ws dual driver speakers to produce a 360-degree audio experience with a balanced bass. Despite its compact size, it is designed to carry no distortion even at its loudest with the two 5-watt drivers delivering clarity. This tuning allows it to suit all genres of music so whether you’re into rock, rap, pop or classical. The combination of the drivers and the unique rear-facing passive bass radiator creates a natural and evenly distributed sound between front and back so it can be positioned anywhere without impacting on the listening experience.

The metallic silver and gunmetal grey give a classic, industrial look while the red and yellow designs are a bolder option. The rubber inlay buttons also match the colored grills.

The K1 features a 2,600 mAh battery so users can continue to listen to playlists for 8-12 hours of constant playtime. With an auto turn off feature, it ensures the battery is saved when not paired, and the LED lights signal when the speaker is fully charged to prevent overcharging. 

The Bluetooth 4.2 speaker also has a 10m range for robust sound connectivity so can be used on a beach, in a garden or around the house without losing connection. If preferred, the K1 also includes a 3.5mm jack for connectivity to TV, laptop and any non-Bluetooth devices.

Also featuring a hands-free calling and conferencing function, the K1 isa fine speaker for using both in the home and when out and about. With an omni-directional mic supporting calls as well as Apple Siri and Google Now voice commands, it is simple to use and produces clear, quality voice audio.
