LAS VEGAS – P&F is almost doubling its selection of Philips- brand Bluetooth speakers with eight new products, all portable AC/DC models.
They include the $49-MAP Flex BT-2000, a mono speaker that expands to improve bass response; the $25 mono BT50 in matte colors; floatable $59 mono BT2200 with IPX6 rating to resist water jets; $39 Pix3L 2-inch-square portable; and a bottle-shaped BT6000 at a targeted $100 MAP. It fits in a bike’s water bottle holder.
The company also plans its highest-priced portable Bluetooth speaker to date, the $179-MAP BT7500. It pairs with up to three phones and features NFC, AptX and AAC streaming. It’s the first stand-alone Bluetooth speaker with the streaming codecs.
The BT-7500 is rated at 2×15 watts and features 3.5-inch woofers, 0.75-inch tweeters and passive radiators in back.
