Ministry of Sound Audio has introduced the Audio S Bluetooth speaker, a wireless audio device with a durable design and splash-proof status that means it can brave the elements. A silicon carrying strap makes it easy to carry around even if you don’t have a bag with you.
Powered by an internal rechargeable battery, the Audio S delivers ten hours of playback at 70% of maximum volume from a single charge. Spanning 212 x 68.5 x 65mm, the Audio S offers two full-range drivers and a passive bass radiator and has a wireless range of up to 10m, a water-resistant rating of IPX4 and the handy feature of remembering the last eight devices it was paired with. It’s compatible with NFC pairing (with compatible devices) and also has both a line-in and a micro USB port – so you can charge your phone and keep the music flowing.
The Audio S is available now, costing £80, and comes in white, charcoal, red and blue finishes.
But that’s not all, Ministry of Sound Audio has also introduced its new Audio On headphones, a brand new on-ear design in two versions: the wired Audio On (£80) and the Bluetooth Wireless Audio On Plus (£130).
Both versions come with an in-line remote and mic for taking calls and skipping tracks on iOS devices (and some Android handsets). They also come fitted with a 1.3m detachable anti-tangle flat cable, while the design of the soft and comfortable ear-cups provides noise isolation.
In addition, the Audio On headphones are foldable and feature a protective carrying case.
The wireless Bluetooth ‘Audio On Plus’ model adds the advantage of wireless sound, touch gesture control and a wireless range of up to ten metres. NFC Bluetooth pairing is available as standard, while you can touch-and-swipe the touch surface on the outside of the ear-cup to skip tracks and change the volume. Both versions of the Audio On Headphones also come with two free tickets to the Ministry of Sound nightclub in London. Both arrive in four colour finishes.
