Parrot has squawked back onto our radar with the announcement of their PARTY Black Edition speaker system, which supposedly integrates Near Field Communication for easy and fast streaming from the source to the system.
Adopting the fancy ‘touch’ word that’s become synonymous with stylish and innovative technology, the user simply has to touch a Bluetooth-enabled source like a mobile phone, MP3 player or computer to the 650g system to stream the music tracks. An inbuilt Class-D amplifier and two drivers give out 6W of power.
Two audio effects, Stereo Widening and Virtual SuperBass are offered via the control panel, with the former enabling a faux surround sound effect, and the Virtual SuperBass as expected, improving the bass frequency.
They’re also portable, with eight hours of battery life, which takes just 2.5hrs of charging through the mains to restore the battery. Out in the summer, it will be £79.
