ASUS Audio Pod Hands-on
Along with the Philippine launch of the Zenfone 3, and new Zenbook and Transformer series, ASUS has also revealed new products to compliment the recently launched mobile devices. One of them is the ASUS Audio Pod.
The ASUS Audio Pod is a Bluetooth-powered wireless speaker. As the name suggests, looks like a pod. It’s rounded, aerodynamic, and slim. The top side, where the speaker is located, is covered with a cloth mesh while printed above it are the labels for the buttons – Play/Pause, Bluetooth, Power, Volume Down, Volume Up.
Located towards the back top part is a metallic plate with brushed metal finish embossed with the ASUS logo. Looking at the rear are ports for the power, microUSB port, and Aux-in.
Down at the bottom is the plastic shell with glossy finish, and rubber base to keep it from slipping.
On hand, the Audio Pod has a decent heft yet still light enough to be comfortably carried around.
When it comes to audio, it boasts two-full range speakers and two custom subwoofers that are capable of producing 360-degree 5.1-channel virtual surround sound.
As for pricing and availability, both are yet to be announced.
