We mentioned last month that Bayan Audio, a UK audio company, was entering the US market. Among their initial US offerings were the $199 Soundbook and the powerful $299 Soundbook X3. Last night they revealed their newsiest product- the Bayan Audio Soundbook GO. The $134.99 Bluetooth speaker has great style and promises equally impressive audio. Here’s a closer look.
The Soundbook GO comes in black, white, blue, and red, charges from either a laptop or standard USB charging adapter and serves up to seven hours of playback per charge. Bayan Audio’s lightest and most affordable Soundbook yet, the speaker packs Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC makes pairing as simple as a quick touch of the NFC-enabled audio source to the speaker. Small in size, the Soundbook GO still outs out 15W of sound and offers TDMA noise rejection that “ensures clearer, uninterrupted streaming”.
Perhaps the most interesting aspect of the Bayan Audio Soundbook GO is its design. Like the Soundbook and the Soundbook X3 before it, the Soundbook GO has a built-in anti-slip smart cover. This not only protects the speaker when not in use, but it also serves as a switch that turns the speaker on when opened and shuts it down when it is closed. It is convenient, practical AND it is a unique design feature that lets the Soundbook GO stand out from the crowd.
