PUMA, mostly known for their athletic apparel, is apparently trying its hands in consumer electronics with the Soundchuck. The PUMA Soundchuck is a Bluetooth portable speaker that features a very durable design. The speakers are weather resistant (water and freeze-proof) and has a flexible silicon cord that connects the two small speakers — so you can swing this around like a nun-chuck. The Soundchuck is equipped with a 1100mAh lithium ion battery that provides over 8 hours of juice. Recharging is done via micro-USB. Despite it’s small size (it weighs less than a pound), PUMA claims the Soundchuck’s speakers boast a big sound.
The PUMA Soundchuck also has a built-in microphone and two magnets on the bottom of each speaker to hold them together for storage or travel. The maximum output of the speakers is 4 Watts (2 Watts for each speaker). Each speaker has two drivers, a 1.5″ and a 2″, with a frequency response of 80hz – 20kHz. The Soundchuck comes in a variety of colors: black, blue, gray, orange, pink, and red. It retails for around $130 USD and can be bought at the Apple Store, Golf Galaxy, or Urban Outfitters.
