First it was headphones, now it’s speakers. Hip hop mogul Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, is expanding his audio empire with the new SMS Audio SYNC by 50 Wireless Speaker. Available in Shadow Black with blue highlights, the $199.95 speaker features 50mm drivers, omni-directional 3D stereo sound. The company claims that the portable speaker will deliver clear, dynamic audio.
The wireless speaker is also equipped with touch sensor control keys and NFC which will come in handy for pairing with smartphones and tablets. The SYNC by 50 speaker is also Bluetooth 4.0 compatible, comes with 5 equalizer settings and can pinch-hit as a speakerphone for conference calls. Ports include a 3.5mm headphone jack and microUSB.
It remains to be heard how 50’s new device will stack up against the Bose SoundLink Mini speaker, Jawbone Jambox or rapper/producer’s Dr. Dre’s Beats Pill. However every purchase of the new speaker will help in the fight against hunger, thanks to Jackson’s ongoing partnership with Feeding America.
The SYNC by 50 Wireless Audio speaker is set to hit shelves August 6th.
