Great to listen to, beautiful to see – xqisit combines engineering and design excellence in a portable Bluetooth speaker

London, 28th March 2013 – Combining extraordinary sound with exquisite style, the new wireless xqPRO 3.0 speaker from xqisit is launched in the UK today. It boasts an array of exciting new features that combine extreme engineering and extraordinary sound with a seriously stylish, award-winning and dynamic design. Its intuitive multi-point touch panel makes for extremely simple operation while avoiding bulky buttons which would otherwise compromise the device’s streamlined shape. It can be used not only as a wireless mobile music speaker, but as a hands-free Bluetooth speakerphone with integrated microphone for calling from any smart phone, tablet or laptop, with background noise reduction. Its recommended retail price of £119.99 puts it within easy reach of a wide audience of savvy buyers who are looking for that magic combination of superb sound, style and affordability.

This new mobile wireless speaker was created with both the music lover and style-conscious mobile user in mind: the slick design and combination matt and piano black finish of the black version of this highly portable speaker ensures it will sit easily in any stylish environment from chic loft apartment to student pad, small home office or smart business office. With two Bluetooth drivers, it can connect to two mobiles at a time and offers the HD sound quality of a much more expensive speaker within a neat footprint of just 118x108x55mm.

Based on the popular xqBEATS range this third-generation xq speaker takes music sound quality to a new dimension as well as being beautiful to look at. Although brand new to the UK it has already won a prestigious red dot design award in Germany and will feature this summer in an exhibition of design excellence at the Red Dot Design Museum in Essen. In October 2012 it won the HKEIA Award for Outstanding Innovation & Technology at the Hong Kong Electronics Fair.

Phil Currie, head of product marketing for STRAX UK commented: "The enticing looks of the xqPRO 3.0 speaker plus incredible sound quality means you don’t have to sacrifice style when looking for audio quality at an affordable price. xqisit has built on the audio and design strengths of the previous product and added the latest innovations to provide a truly stunning mobile speaker."

The award-winning design of the xqPRO 3.0 combines with a series of optimised and improved features including superb sound quality, improved signal transfer between mobile device and speaker plus enhanced battery life of ten hours.

The xqPRO is available immediately from Mobile Fun and Amazon UK. It is currently available in black.
