Listening to music just got prettier thanks to the Novogratz family
Even just a few years ago, sound systems and speakers were not only
gigantic but they were all in basic black--maybe silver if you were really
Thankfully now, audio systems have gotten smaller, sleeker, and
now they're available in prettier colors that showcase your personal
style. In fact, I might even call a few of them "stylish," which is the
first word that came to mind (after "wow") when I saw these new gadgets
that I'm pretty sure are going to be at the top of a lot of holiday
I've been pretty intrigued by the Soundfreaq recharge wireless speaker ever since our Editor Liz reviewed this wonderful wireless, compact audio system a while back.
So when I saw their new line designed by illustrious design couple The Novogratz Family
(love them!), I am now officially obsessed with the cool designs and the hilarious names. What can I say? I'm a sucker for a good play on words.
The Novogratz Collection
includes the higher end Chiq Freaq soundstack
in a funky snake skin pattern (at very top), which is a trendy alternative to the basic black. And while I'm not sure if I could pull off the Flower Freaq
(above), I know a lot of people will love a splash of bright color in a more neutral room. Each of them are made for larger rooms, with great audio, dual active subwoofers, infrared remote control, and more. Definitely worth a look if you want big sound in a not-so-big space.
The Freaq of Nature sound step
looks amazing, and unlike anything I've seen, with the beautiful wood detail. It's a more affordable, compact system and not only docks any iOS or Android device and controls it with remote, the sound is pretty sweet.
I also have to mention the pair of Soundfreaq Soundrise system options which are the 21st century alternative to a clock radio next to the bed, that make use of your smartphone, Bluetooth streaming, and great audio for games, music and apps. Besides, the Freaq in the Bed soundrise system
? Well, the name is just too hilarious.
The systems range in price from $125 up through $450, which is comparable to similar quality speakers. And keep in mind that you're getting more than a sound system that makes your ears happy--you're getting a very swanky bit of room decor. -Kristen
