You wait for one set of outdoor wireless speakers to show up and then two come along at once! Today it’s Sony Ericsson’s turn to take your music outside, with its Outdoor Wireless Speaker MS500 – a first for the company.
Available in “trendy orange and black” or “chic white and pink”, the MS500 speaker is apparently “the ultimate accessory for any dedicated pop rocker or dancing queen”.
And it’s small enough to fit into the palm of a hand, as well as being light enough to be taken anywhere and everywhere.
“The Bluetooth technology enables your phone to be used as a remote control to change tracks and increase volume, allowing you to just sit back and relax with music without the need to move,” a Sony Ericsson suit said over some loud music.
“Simply connect the speaker to any mobile handset within a 10 metre range and in just seconds hear your favourite songs blast out, with clear treble and rich bass.”
Sony Ericsson says the MS500 speaker features a durable splash proof shell and a handy strap.
Two AA batteries will give you up to five hours playback and there are a couple included in the package.
