Polk BOOM introduces first wearable ready-for-anything Bluetooth speaker

Polk BOOM advanced its rugged speaker series with the BOOM BIT, the first truly wearable Bluetooth speaker, ideal for on-the-go listening and Ready for Anything. The small and lightweight speaker clips securely to clothing or a backpack and integrates with how one moves, balancing the right amount of sound with the immediate surroundings.

“Polk BOOM recognizes that enjoying your music while participating in your favorite outdoor activity, like biking or skateboarding is important, but also realized that being aware of ambient noise and your immediate surroundings is even more critical,” said Polk BOOM’s founder Ryan Minarik. “The convenience of portable speakers has listeners blasting music further and louder than ever before. However, consumers still need to be safe while enjoying their favorite tunes. This is exactly why we designed BIT, to keep our adventurers safely engaged through all their senses, by balancing music with surrounding noises.”

Designed with soft edges and a rounded shape, BIT can be worn anywhere on the body with comfort as it weighs in at only 8 oz. and measures at just under three inches in length.  A spring steel clip holds the speaker in place during high-intensity workouts and extreme sports, whether that’s riding a bike, going on a walk, or hiking a local trail. BIT is just loud enough for wearers to be fully immersed in music while remaining aware of their surroundings, as it doesn’t completely block out surrounding noises.

BIT offers a ruggedized Ready for Anything design, making the speaker sweat, dirt, sand, or mud, and shock-proof in case of a fall. Additionally, the wearable speaker can take calls with a built-in speakerphone, providing hands-free listening while driving, walking or running errands. For extreme sports, like downhill mountain biking, users can answer calls without worrying about their phone getting crushed in a sudden fall. Additionally, those who enjoy spending long periods of time exploring the great outdoors will appreciate BIT’s built-in USB that can be plugged into a USB port in a car, laptop, or power brick, eliminating the need to carry extra cables and adapters for charging.

BIT colorways include Black, Sport Blue, Volt Yellow, Lava Red, and a two-toned Grey/Mint offering.

The Mindanao group of islands in southern Philippines has long been called as the country's "Promised Land" - albeit this is often said as a yet-fulfilled potential, instead of highlighting what the place now has to offer. We don't only believe it's wrong; we also strongly believe time to correct this and highlight everything about this place that is, indeed, a land full of promise. So here's... Mindanaw Magazine!
