These speakers go BOOM


The BOOM Movement is taking its next supreme idea to the streets with Urchin, a Ready 4 Anything (R4A) Bluetooth speaker designed to go where you go.

The Urchin's interchangeable silicone skins give the Urchin its distinct look and also make it shock and water resistant, according to the folks at the BOOM Movement. It ships with a carbineer for hooking on a belt loop or backpack, a suction cup for sticking to a shower tile, and a screw mount attachment for the dash of a car, or it can be used with the optional bike mount or strap attachment.

The Urchin's silicone skin is molded with a hole at the top so it can easily be attached to most anything with everything from a screw in the wall, to a rope tied around a tree. Also included is a built-in microphone that instantly turns the Urchin into a hands free speaker for any Bluetooth phone allowing it to be used on the go.

The Urchin is built to connect with pretty much any Bluetooth device, with support for Version 2.1 + EDR or higher, Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP), Audio/Video Remote Control Profile (AVRCP), Simple Secure Pairing (SSP), Advance Audio Coding (AAC), Hands-Free Profile (HFP) 1.5 or higher, and Headset Profile (HSP).

It boasts about 10 hours of battery life and a charge time of just two hours. A 3.5mm input also makes it easy to connect a phone for devices that do not have Bluetooth. (The mini jack input and USB charging port are water resistant when not in use.)

The BOOM Urchin will make its debut at the International CES in Las Vegas, Jan. 8-11, 2013, and on the BOOM Movement website on Jan. 8, 2013 for US$149.99. For more info, check out www.BoomMovement.com .
