I resisted getting a smart phone for a very long time and for many reasons. So, when my husband finally convinced me several years ago that an iPhone would really make my life more simple and help me with the blog it was a decision I have never regretted. Now, we both rely upon our iPhones for so many things. They are our source of music on the go, create invoices, camera, calendar, email, etc. They are like mini computers and we haven’t even scratched the surface of all of the wonderful things they can do to make our lives simpler. So I really love it when companies come out with great accessories to go with our iDevices.
We were sent the Soundfreaq Step Recharge for review last week. This device not only recharges your smartphones and tablets, but it also acts as a speaker system. Better yet, it acts as a speaker system wirelessly! I have been looking into these for awhile now because of their convenience. This summer I really wanted a wireless speaker system for ease of use when we were outside playing or at the pool. Because I can stream everything wirelessly I can still have access to my email and other needs while listening. The streaming happens via Bluetooth and seems to do a pretty good job. There were a couple of times when it lost the connection, but we have had some crazy weather around here lately as well (not sure if that matters or not).
My husband uses this more than I do. He will link up his phone and we are listening to our favorite music wherever we are in the house. We keep the Soundfreaq Step Recharge system centrally located so that it works for all of us. The remote that is included allows him to easily scroll through to the song he is looking for. The remote factor is great if you are using the system to charge your phone or tablet at the same time as listening. The audio works well enough for us to hear clear music from the living room into our bedroom. Granted, our house is by no means huge, but I think the quality is nice for the price and size of this system. You can purchase the Soundfreaq Step Recharge for about $149.
