There’s a new speaker company in town and they’re nude. Boy, that was easy to write! Seriously, NudeAudio is a recent player in an almost over-crowded portable speaker market. One way they are trying to be noticed – besides their name – is to make speakers that look like no other, which is understandable because NudeAudio’s founders are product designers. Four speaker models retail between $29.99 and $99.99. The names are as playful as the looks: Move S, Move M and Move L. There are two Move S (small) speaker choices; one wired , one wireless . Then there is the Move M (do I need to say medium?), a larger and more powerful Bluetooth 3.0 speaker. While the Move S and Move M are portable, the Move L Bluetooth speaker is made for home use, though it can be carried around. The speakers are protected by a thick silicone sleeve and come in two-tone coral/black or mint/white with matching carrying cord. The Move speakers will be available in late August.
Chief Marketing Officer Tom Old states, “We’re thrilled to be able to put a line of fashion-inspired speakers out on the market that can compete . . . at a lower cost to consumers. The category has seen a glut of over-priced product, and we’d like to challenge that.”
