It seems like every brand released a Bluetooth wireless speaker in 2013, and one of our favorites from the year is the PUMA Soundchuck. Because what else would you want to listen to Fresh Veggies, the new joint EP from Rockie Fresh and Casey Veggies, on?
While PUMA has been holding it down in the sneaker game for over 65 years, they’re certainly no strangers to the music scene. Sports and lifestyle go hand in hand, and the Soundchuck—inspired by martial arts and designed to look like a pair of nunchucks—blends the two worlds nicely.
“Music is a huge part of the PUMA DNA,” says Jay Piccola, President of PUMA North America, “and expanding our audio offerings into speakers with the new PUMA Soundchuck makes perfect sense for our brand.”
With two circular speakers connected by a sleek cord, the weather-resistant Soundchuck weighs less than one pound. The speakers were also created with magnets, allowing you to connect and detach them for your listening pleasure. Since getting our hands on one, we can’t seem to put it down.
Available in six colors (Red, Orange, Pink, Blue, Slate, and Black), the PUMA Soundchuck retails for $129.95 at select Apple stores and Apple.com.
