Soundfreaq sounds off

New sound docks launch wireless duo

With some consumers embracing cord-cutting, it’s about time that more electronic devices go wireless. Twine Intl.’s duo of Soundfreaq docking stations do an impressive job pairing up any mobile device and laptop — not just Apple products — with the speaker systems using a Bluetooth connection, something far more expensive devices from Bose, for example, don’t offer.

Crisp sound quality is impressive, and the almost retro-like design of the core device’s black speaker, and brushed steel housing is unobtrusive, fitting in with any home or office decor.

The smaller Sound Step device is perfect for desktops, and accommodates both versions of the iPad, instantly turning into an external speaker for the tablet when playing Netflix movies or “Angry Birds,” of course.

What’s even better is the price: about $200 for the Sound Platform, available at Target and, while smaller Sound Step will retail for $150 when it’s available mid-June.
