This Could Be the Pocket Speaker that Doesn't Totally Blow

Portable speakers sacrifice sound quality for size. That will always be the case. But some really sacrifice. Soundmatters' foxLv2 Platinum Bluetooth speaker, however, promises big sound in a little package.

The foxLv2 builds on the previous technology of previous foxL speakers, which include a passive bass radiator and a driver that combines the tweeter and woofer. Designed by a former NASA scientist, the foxLv2 promises increased battery life and improved audio quality, which Soundmatters attributes to the CSR apx-X audio codec they're using for Bluetooth streaming.

The foxLv2 will be available starting in November for $230. [Soundmatters]
