BlueAnt says each speaker delivers clear audio from low settings with audible vocals to full volume which promises maximum sound quality.
“The X4’s peers can’t rival its clarity, bass and range of audio, regardless of volume,” Maddern says. “It’s the most versatile speaker that’s available today. It can easily be a party speaker, the speaker that sits in the middle of a picnic, it can be a karaoke machine, as a boombox for an outdoor gym, or be comfortable at home or in the garden."
“We looked at what made our X5 speaker such a huge hit with Australians and we added to it in a more portable form factor that can help revellers announce loudly that parties are back in Australia,” Maddern claims.
Like the X5, the X4 sports a LED lighting system, engaging microphone capability, and a lightweight form factor that belies the sound it can produce. It also features BlueAnt’s patented psycho-acoustic bass extension and lights and showcases five different light modes as well as a lights-off option.
BlueAnt added several key features to make the X4 stand out.
Up to 100 X4s can be paired together at any time with a relative pairing distance of up to 100 metres between each speaker (direct line of sight), with the Queen Bee speaker (the first speaker connected via Bluetooth to the music device) controlling the music, volume, and bass boost. The connections stay strong regardless of interference, such as walls, allowing the bass to pump consistently throughout the party regardless of the party’s location or the speakers themselves.
It also sports light-up controls, ensuring easy navigation in darker indoor, outdoor, or night party settings. In a form factor about half the size of the X5 – measuring at a cube-like 24x23x26 cm – and weighing just 2.6 kg, the X4 can fit anywhere it needs to be.
The X4 is IP54 splashproof, and is available in a range of colours such as black, white, teal, pink and purple.
The X4 also comes with a bonus microphone and the speaker itself sports microphone volume and echo effect controls.
The X4 is available for pre-order at the BlueAnt website now, and from select Telstra Stores on 12 October.
