The ARS60 Wireless Speaker by Acoustic Research (Review) #HGG

With each passing year it gets harder and harder finding gifts for my oldest son. In this age of technology the only things on his list tend to be related to gaming and computers. This year it’s been a real struggle finding outside the box gifts he will enjoy and actually use. With his age being a big factor I took into consideration the few things he enjoys. Beyond gaming he is at the age where music is a big influence. I thought about a stereo system, I mean at his age that was certainly at the top of my holiday list. But he made a good point when saying “mom, all my music is downloaded on my phone.” “What would I listen to on a stereo?” Apparently kids today never heard of CD’s or better yet simply don’t see the use for them when everything is digital – man, I feel old! And out the window went that idea. Or did it?

The ARS60 wireless speaker by Acoustic Research gives you portability and clear sound. Allowing you to play the music you’ve download through your smartphone, tablet or Bluetooth enabled devices were ever and whenever, with the sound and control of actually stereo system speakers.

The ARS60 Bluetooth wireless speakers are portable and can be taken anywhere at home or on the road.  They’re available in a wide variety of colors and feature a petite and hour-glass shape protected by a soft mesh cloth. The bottom of the speaker you’ll find your AC input for charging and 3.5mm input jack.

 On the top of the speaker you have your controls: volume and power buttons and track control.


 With a built-in rechargeable battery you get up to 10 hours of cable-free wireless listening from your smartphone, computer, or other Bluetooth-enabled device. Charging is as simple as you would expect. Plug you AC adapter into the wall and the LED light at the button of the unit will turn green when charging has completed.  Packing a punch, with 16 watts total power, 8 watts per channel, you’ll be surprised at the clear quality sound you get from this otherwise petite speaker – or at least I was.

Meant to be an indoor speaker as it’s clearly not safe from the elements. On a clear day this speaker is perfect on the porch while enjoying a little time in the pool or for a BBQ. Overall I was very pleased and have already had to ask my son to turn it down! Maybe I should have thought this gift out a little better ;)

This is a very nice Wireless Bluetooth speaker that sounds like it works very well and would be great to have handy. I think that this is a great gift to give to my nephew because he likes listening to music with speakers.
