Portable speakers often place a high importance on the convenience of wireless audio, often at the expense of sound quality. That’s why we were excited to find out about the Sound Step Lightning 2, a sleek, feature rich Bluetooth sound station to deliver the fantastic sound you crave. For a limited time, 9to5Toys Specials has it for $59 shipped.
The Sound Step is just 3.6 inches deep, but there is space for a full 2.1 speaker configuration inside, complete with a dedicated sub-woofer. The output is enhanced by the stereo and bass separation of proprietary UQ3™ spatial sound technology, and there is an infra-red remote included for controlling playback.
You can feed music into the speaker wirelessly via Bluetooth, or plug your iPhone into the integrated Lightning dock. Alternatively, you can tune into FM radio via Soundfreaq’s app, or go for a regular line-in connection. You can also keep your phone (or other device) topped up with Sound Step’s USB charging port. The speaker itself is rechargeable and can last up to 8 hours.
This deal takes 60% off the regular price of the Sound Step Lightning 2, with free shipping to the Continental US.
