It's Winter Break for me right now. Which means it's the time of year when I put down my school books and look up to realize that my house has descended into utter chaos. I have a month to clean, organize and deal with the preparations for the holidays and then the recovery from the same. I can do this!
Fortunately for me, I have something to help keep me company while I do all this cleaning and organizing- my iPod, filled with podcasts and music. And, rather than trying to turn up the volume on the iPod so that I can hear it wherever I go, I now have a fabulous new accessory for it- a DECK wireless speaker from SOL REPUBLIC. Here's a bit about this speaker, from its website:
The SOL REPUBLIC x Motorola DECK is the only wireless speaker featuring Super-Power Wireless Range and Heist Mode™, allowing up to 5 friends to pair at once and take turns controlling the music.I've really been enjoying using this little speaker. I like that it's small (3.8 x 7.4 x 1.2 inches ; 11.2 ounces), but still has a great sound. And it has a wonderful range, so I don't have to keep my iPod right next to it. I had Vivian wander to the other end of the house with my iPod and the speaker didn't lose connection. You can also use it outdoors and it has a special outdoor mode that will make it easier to hear outside!
The fun feature that this speaker has is Heist Mode (which you can turn on and off as you choose). So if you're throwing a party or if you just have a family who all have different playlists, you can all pair up with the DECK and take turns making the speaker play what you want to hear! Pairing up with the DECK is super easy- it really was just a matter of turning the Bluetooth on on my iPod and turning on the speaker and it did the rest. I also like that it keeps you updated about battery strength when you turn it on, so you know when recharge is needed. So far I've been playing with the speaker for a few hours and still haven't needed to recharge. It's advertised as having 10 hours of battery life, and that seems accurate!
If you do not live in the dark ages like I do, and have a smart phone, you can pair that up with the DECK and have a speakerphone when you need it!
