New Year, New Opportunity

I know we are a little late on this, but first I would just like to say, Happy New Year! The last 8 weeks have been incredibly busy, and I am honored let everyone know that AudioActiv survived a second holiday season.  VAULT cases were obviously a huge hit as a gift this year, particularly models for the BIG Jambox and the Bose Soundlink, but I guess that makes sense with the growth in the portable audio market over the past 12 months. Research firm NPD Group estimated that audio equipment accounted for 13% of the $8 billion in consumer electronics sales between Nov. 24 and Dec. 7. More importantly, wireless speaker sales quadrupled. We love to see this kind of growth in the industry, but we even more happy to know that customers see the tremendous potential of our product. 

I do not want to ramble on all day here, but I do want to say thank to all of our customers for giving us the opportunity to serve you over the last 14 months. 2013 was a wonderful year, and AudioActiv has big plans for 2014. We are very close to bring some great new products to the market so please check back on our website and Facebook page for more updates over the coming weeks. 

Just in case you have not seen this already, I'll leave you with one picture of the all-new VAULT XL. The VAULT XL features some pretty awesome upgrades from our current large case model, but the core features remain the same. This case is waterproof, dirt-proof, shock-proof and delivers more hifi sound than you could ever imagine. Even better, we are expanding the line-up of interior configurations to accommodate more speakers from Bose, Jawbone, JBL, Braven and a few more.

P.S. If we have any readers that would like to post some pictures of their new VAULT case in action, we would love to see them. You (or your friends) can post pictures on this blog or on our Facebook and Twitter pages.

Beats Electronics Announces the Pill XL

First, we just wanted to say sorry for the long absence from the blog. The team here at AudioActiv has been very busy for the past few weeks on new product development, but that is not really a good excuse. However, we are very excited to let everyone know we will start pushing out updates on all of our hard work in the very near future! Make sure you subscribe to our newsletter for more information.

In other news, Beats Electronics recently announced the release of the Beats Pill XL, just in time for the holiday season

This new version of the Pill will be larger in size, approximately 13 inches in length and 4-inches in diameter, and is outfitted with a handle for easy carrying. Another notable feature is NFC, allowing the speaker to connect wirelessly to Bluetooth devices very quickly. The Beats Pill XL is expected to go for a $300 retail price.

As we have not tested the Pill XL to date, we cannot say how this speaker stacks up to the competition like the Jawbone BIG JAMBOX. What we can say for certain is that Bluetooth speakers continue to be one of the hottest holiday gifts. Do not wait if you are thinking of buying one for yourself or a loved one.

Once again, we apologize for the long hiatus. We cannot wait to officially announce what we've been working on so stay tuned for more exciting news on what's happening at AudioActiv!

Did You Win the Giveaway?

Thank you to everyone who entered our JAMBOX + VAULT giveaway. We really appreciate all the support all of our followers have shown. Thanks for believing in us. The lucky winner is...

Curtis Lu! You are now the owner of a brand new Jawbone Jambox speaker and an AudioActiv VAULT waterproof speaker case. We hope you take the VAULT with you on your next hiking adventure. Enjoy and share with your friends!

Please stay tuned for a very exciting announcement in the next couple weeks! Here's a sneak peak video. 

Summer's over. It's time for sweater weather!

And also, happy Music Monday! Today, we are featuring an awesome remix of The Neighbourhood's Top 40 song "Sweater Weather." This Little Daylight remix slows down the original and really accentuates the bass guitar line. This decelerated hard rock version then speeds up halfway through the song with a snarky electric guitar riff, high hats, and quick snares. Little Daylight does a good job of showing a wide spectrum of remixing styles in a span of four and a half minutes. Check it out below!

Keep jamming in the water with your floating VAULT speaker case!

Sorry we missed Music Monday last week due to the Labor Day weekend, but we are back at it this week! Today we are featuring Lorde. You might recognize her sultry voice from her Top 40 hit single "Royals." This mysterious 16-year-old singer-songwriter from New Zealand is taking the world by storm with her synthpop style and poetic lyrics. We would say her sound is an intoxicating blend of Lana del Rey and Purity Ring. This FFFRRANNNO remix of "Bravado" has a snare line that has us hooked!

Also, remember to sign up for the JAMBOX + VAULT giveaway! Only a couple days left!
