808 Audio recently released several new portable speakers as part of its CES 2016 lineup, they has decided to double down on that form factor along with a much larger version—the Canz XL—as well as three other budget-priced Bluetooth speakers.
The company also has some more svelte opt in the pipeline, though, such as the Hex Light and the Hex LXS. 808 Audio plans to launch the new speakers this upcoming spring season.
The $100 Canz XL measures five inches wide and just about 7.5 inches tall. It is nearly two and a half times the size of the original Canz, with a larger driver, better bass response, and a battery that is rated to last eight hours on a single change (the battery in the smaller original speaker lasts six hours).
Joining the Canz XL is a similar speaker called the Hex Light, a likewise cylindrical tower along with a tapered design and horizontal honeycomb vent. The Hex Light features 360-degree audio thanks to the cone-like shape, also a LEDs for a light show based on your music. The speaker has both Bluetooth and a wired audio port. The speaker will be priced at $79.99 USD.
Finally, 808 Audio’s latest top-of-the-line Bluetooth speaker—the $130 Hex LXS—features dual 3.0-inch full-range drivers and bass radiators, a 20W amplifier, and a 4000mAh battery rated to last up to 10 hours (somewhat less than that if you take benefit of its USB port to charge your other devices). allows up to ten hours of playtime, but if you use USB ports for charging devices that is going to be less.
Each of these speakers is available now.
