Our new platform will enable us to add cool features, and we can update the look and feel of the site as we grow as a company. Please let us know if you find any errors or glitches on the pages as these typically happen when launching a new site.

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!
Instagram

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!
Instagram


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!

Paradise Found - The Vault for BIG JAMBOX

A few weeks ago, The Vault for BIG JAMBOX ventured on its first beach trip to the sunny island of Key West, Florida.



This exciting voyage took The Vault out to sea and AudioActiv's high-quality case successfully endured a fun-filled boating extravaganza.


The Vault's waterproof and sand-proof protection was tested.  Once again, The Vault for BIG JAMBOX met the challenge.


Check out AudioActiv's latest YouTube posting.  The sound transmitted through The Vault case has not been altered or manipulated.

Bring on the Sunshine!

With spring on the way and summer not far behind, AudioActiv is getting excited about all of the opportunities to show off the amazing features of The Vault. Heading to the beach for Spring Break? There is no need to leave your JAMBOX, BIG JAMBOX or Braven 625s behind. The Vault has it covered. Waterproof, sand-proof, shock-proof protection; you can't ask for much more than that.


We also wanted to share a few user photos as the The Vault case went on-the-road to Barcelona, Spain this past week.  


Of all the great places to sight-see in the city of Barcelona, everyone agreed Gaudi's Park Guell was by far the most beautiful.  Of course, the perfect weather conditions probably played their part. but either way, it certainly was a great Saturday outing.

Announcing The Vault for BIG JAMBOX

The Vault case for BIG JAMBOX is officially launched.  It possesses all the awesome features of The Vault for the original JAMBOX plus additional storage compartments.  Check it out on the AudioActiv website.


There's nothing like a tailgate with your friends and the tunes blaring.  The Vault for BIG JAMBOX was true to form this Sunday. It held strong against the occasional spill and several falls onto concrete.  While securely protected inside The Vault, The BIG JAMBOX blasted Tiesto's Club Life and Pandora with high quality sound.

New Years Resolution

While most people are thinking of ways to get skinny or spend less time on Facebook, the team at AudioActiv is brainstorming new and improved case systems.  To update all of you interested in a case for the BigJambox, the 'MegaVault' will be for sale on our site and Amazon in the next two to three weeks.  Hope you are excited because we can't wait!

In an effort to provide beneficial information to our interested readers and current customers, we created three new videos on The Vault case for Jambox, Braven SIX series and FoxL Bluetooth portable speakers.

Features of The Vault



Getting Started Guide

Water Resistance Test



We also reflected on this past year and our customer's travels with The Vault case.  We are happy to see that The Vault was tested, and the case passed with flying colors.  People with active lifestyles tested the ability to attach The Vault to almost anything and made sure that its strong outer shell and waterproof design would allow them to Take Music Everywhere.

Here are a few shots from one of our recent outdoor adventures.





Thanks for a great 2012.  We are looking forward to an even better 2013.  Lastly, we want to leave you with an article by the USA Today remembering music by great artists that as now longer with us.  May their music live on.  Go AudioActiv!
