The guys at Kew Labs have kindly sent us their K1 Portable Speaker to give away.
The on board power amp on this new enclosure drives the 2 5W speakers and there’s a passive bass radiator to add some mids too. Its omni-directional mic supports hands free phone calls as well as Apple Siri and Google Now voice commands.
The Bluetooth 4.2 speaker has a 20m range and with 8 to 12 hours playtime from its built-in 2600mAh battery you can listen all day. You’ll find a quick start guide and micro USB charging cable in the box too.
The K1 also has an IPX4 water resistant rating which means It can take heavy splashes, spills and all sorts of weather.
Designed in London
We talked to Rupert Han, founder of Kew Labs about the design of the new K1 and he told us…
“My long time friend Nick Collins happened to be working around the corner from me in a graphic design studio in West London. So when I was looking for a designer for this project, I was excited to turn our lunch chats into real ideas. We saw that most speakers in this price range were dull, all black and uninteresting. So we decided to release a collection of speakers instead of a one colour fits all model straight away launch. The four colour designs in the K1 collection reflect a range of different styles we felt represented certain aspects of urban life.The metallic silver, and gunmetal grey pair give a more classic industrial look, while the red and yellow designs offer a bolder more graffiti like statement. All different in taste but all related in design and branding. While future products are already being designed elsewhere, the K1 wireless speaker definitely owes a lot to London so we felt it appropriate to state that on this particular product and look to change it up in the.”
