Parrot has launched the "Party", a light and compact mobile wireless speaker with what looks to be some impressive audio technology packed in.
You can send your favourite tracks from any Bluetooth Stereo (A2DP) music source such as a mobile phone, MP3 player or PC to the bone-shaped Parrot Party with just one click.
This isn’t Parrot's first wireless speaker – their Sound System and Boombox have previously been launched in the UK, but it is their first portable offering, and at 23cm long, weighing 620 grams and with a 4-hour rechargeable battery it is certainly that.
Despite being lightweight, the Parrot Party promises great performance with a Class D-amplifier and two 2 x 3 Watt wide-band speakers.
According to Parrot, this little speaker sounds great thanks to two smart sound effects they have developed: "Stereo Widening" enlarges the stereophony, similar to the effect in an auditorium, whilst the "Virtual SuperBass" reinforces the bass frequencies.
If you don’t have a Bluetooth Stereo enabled device then you can still play your music wirelessly by using a dongle, and there is a line-in port too.
The Parrot Party will be available worldwide in stores and via the link below from summer 2007 onwards for £79.99.
