The Dash 7 isn’t particularly new, but Soundmatters has just launched a brand new color, to celebrate Valentines day. Not a huge surprise, but the new color is red. It’s actually available right now from Amazon for just $219, which is $30 off it’s normal price.
This one is said to be the slimmest, and lightest Hi-Fi Bluetooth speaker in the world. It’s only 3/4″ high to disappear below tablets and monitors, or to slip inside a jacket pocket. It also only weighs about 7.1 ounces. So it’s very lightweight. You can connect to this via Bluetooth, or use the audio cable with comes with the speaker. It’s said to have around 20 hours of battery life, which is pretty good actually. The Bluetooth speaker with the longest battery life prior to this (that I’ve reviewed) is the Ultimate Ears Boom speakers at 15 hours.
There’s also a sub output connection, so you can add on the Soundmatters foxLO palm-sized powered subwoofer, which turns the Dash 7 into an amazing Hi-Fi system, which is really portable as well. It comes with all the expected cables and casings and such. It’s also available in Vibrant red, Arctic White and Midnight Black. We’ve got links down below for those that are interested in picking one of these up for Valentine’s day, or just want to have one. These are not water-resistant or water-proof, so don’t hang one of these up in the shower.
According to reviews (we haven’t gotten one in to review just yet) it has pretty amazing sound, which is nice to hear. Soundmatters usually produces some really nice speakers, so I wouldn’t expect anything less from them. How many of you are going to pick one up? Let us know in the comments below.
