If you’re in the market for a Bluetooth speaker for your tween or teen, this is the review and giveaway for you. I recently had the opportunity to test out the Sol Republic Motorola DECK, a wireless speaker that uses Bluetooth technology to connect to your mobile phone, portable MP3 player or any other compatible Bluetooth-enabled device. Actually, I should say that my kids had the opportunity to test it out because as soon as my 13 year-old son get his paws on the speaker, my testing time was over.
When I asked Alex what he thought of the speaker, he told me, “The speaker is awesome, I love it. It’s epic. I like that it is Bluetooth enabled because I can take it pretty much anywhere. It is also good quality sound.” That’s a glowing review from a tech-savvy teenage boy.
In a few short weeks, my husband has used the Sol Republic DECK to listen to music while working and my son has carted it around to every room in the house. Simply using the device to listen to music was too simple for my son, though; he used it to play a little prank on his sister.
He hid the Sol Republic DECK under a blanket in the living room, left the room and waited for his little sister to sit down to watch her favorite TV show. As soon as she got comfortable he starting playing an eerie tune on his iPhone, which broadcast the sound through the hidden speaker. He wasn’t in the room – he was down the hall and around the corner – and he was still within range. Of course she jumped up and started to look around for the source of the noise. Alex quickly came running and laughing. This little anecdote is why I love having my kids test out products – I wouldn’t have thought of testing out the range in such a creative way.
As you can see, the entire family enjoyed the Sol Republic DECK.
