Portable speakers are all over the place right now. However, there are but a few portable audio devices that are actually worthy of your cochlea, and thereby, your money. Yes, the portable speaker scene stands on shaky ground. But like a handful of others, the Get Together speaker system from The House of Marley seems to be a pleaser in the cacophonous crowd.
The House of Marley is an eco-conscious audio company that pairs sustainable design with functionality. Co-founded by Rohan Marley, son of the legendary reggae musician Bob Marley, this earth-friendly company is just one of the 40-something entrepreneur’s many green businesses inspired by his late father’s ideals.
Sound to satisfy your soul
The speaker system features two 3.5-inch woofers that deliver strong sound adequate to fill a mid-sized room, and two 1-inch tweeters that deliver clear highs and mids. Unlike most portable speakers that exude a terribly muddy or weak sound, Get Together is a notch above the rest.The base has a nice deep feel; the treble is loud but not overbearing, whilethe mid-range sits in between.
Connectivity and battery life
The speaker can be paired with all sorts of devices like iPods, MP3 players, phones, laptops and tablets via Bluetooth, the connectivity of which is seamless. It automatically reconnects to the last Bluetooth device used. It can also be connected to devices using the provided in-line cable and USB cord. A USB port on the bottom rear doubles as a charging station for the attached device. However, the speaker offers limited connectivity in that it does not offer Wi-Fi compatibility or AirPlay, which some of the newer portable speakers have been offering. What’s also missing is a remote control.
