NuForce Cube Portable Speaker – turn up the volume
We love listening to music. It speaks to us through the best of times and the worst of times. That being said, it should be no wonder that we want it on, loud, and playing constantly. There’s nothing more annoying than having your favorite song come on, and not have the ability to be fully immersed in it because you can’t turn it up any more.
This would be a good time for either an external speaker, or a way to turn up the volume even higher on your headphones. The NuForce Cube Portable Speaker will help you do just that. It will be a step up from whatever your current ear buds are, and can act solidly as a standalone speaker. It has an output of 3W, and a DAC that can provide 16bit/8kHz of sound.
It’s made of aluminum, plastic, and cloth, and only weighs 6 ounces. This is perfect for presentations, cars without a sound system, or just jamming anywhere in the house. As someone who doesn’t always like wireless devices (when they don’t work), it makes me happy to see that this is a plug-and-play. It comes with a 3.5mm cable that is two feet long, a USB cable that is 2′ 4”, and a carrying pouch. The biggest downside is that this little thing will cost you $100, which seems like just a bit too much for what it is.
