The kids who grew up in the 1980s and spent their teens in that era, spilling over into the 1990s along the way, would certainly have heard of the boombox culture, or at least, participated in such a culture. It was a time when there were no distractions such as mobile phones, and neither do you need to worry about posting up photos of yourself in compromising positions and poses on a social network with no way of pulling those photos down afterwards. What about today? Street dancing has become a popular past time for many, and obviously, good music will need to be complemented by fantastic audio playback capability, which is what the Edifier Extreme Connect intends to do. The Edifier Extreme Connect is a powerful portable speaker system that delivers unparalleled audio clarity regardless of the environment it is in, including large indoor and outdoor spaces.
I guess in a nutshell, the Edifier Extreme Connect is best described to be an all-in-one portable solution for audio applications as well as hands-free phone conferencing, if the need arises. This particular system will be able to hook up (sans wires, of course) to any Bluetooth enabled device – be they smartphones, tablets and computers, where it is capable of streaming music, movies, games and phone calls. I strongly suspect that the primary use of the Edifier Extreme Connect would be for movies and music, and not so much to see it work as a conference call device.
It does not matter where your adventure takes you, as the Edifier Extreme Connect will come in a fully portable form factor, where its built-in rechargeable battery is said to boast of a non-stop audio playback time of up to 12 hours – I suppose that might even be longer than what your smartphone is able to handle. Other than that, it will also arrive with a microSD memory card slot to carry up to 32GB of media, supports USB streaming and has a 3.5 auxiliary port. You can pick it up in black, blue, red, yellow and gray shades for $99.99 a pop.
