Geneva Lab thinks it has a stylish enough Bluetooth speaker option to set it apart from the ubiquitous competition by way of the GenevaSound Model XS, which has just been announced by the Swiss company.

The suave-looking clamshell style travel speaker comes in white, black or red and each model boasts a piano-lacquered HD composite.

Tech-wise, it packs a 2.1 speaker system with two 1-inch tweeters and one 2.25-inch woofer hidden within its diminutive chassis as well as digital amplifiers for optimal audio performance (or an analogue amplifier when in FM mode) with a 12W (2x3, 1x6) output and a frequency range of 80Hz to 20kHz.

Each speaker is individually powered and chambered for "accurate acoustics" and there's a rechargeable lithium battery with more than 5 hours play-time. As well as Bluetooth, aux-in and FM radio, the Model XS also offers a digital clock with alarm, an LED display and backlit, touch-sensitive controls.

Out this month, the GenevaSound Model XS will cost you £179.
