Kickstart This! EDGE.sound Bluetooth Speaker

Speakers Kickstarter Bluetooth Audio Visual Gear

I have come to love bluetooth speaker systems; their ability to stream audio from a phone or tablet is extremely convenient. In fact, when I am camping or outside on the deck, I almost refuse to use a wired speaker system. New technologies and design features make these products sound and look great. One feature I wish all companies would include is a microphone to allow the speaker to be used as a hands-free call device. I recently found a device that looks to provide a bluetooth speaker that includes style, quality and ease of use. All of that with a microphone to use for calls! Let’s take a quick look.
