The highly durable MonkeyCanz Bluetooth speaker is built to withstand the rigours of outdoor life on the beach or at the pool, though it’s equally at home indoors – even in the bathroom or shower.
Equipped with the latest communication technologies, the MonkeyCanz MC-201 comes in a range of sparkling colours and attaches securely to your world via a strong carabiner clip. If you’re a music fan looking for a smart, easy-to-operate summer accessory – perhaps you’ve just discovered it!
With its neat profile and range of bold colours, the MonkeyCanz Bluetooth speaker certainly has pleasing eye-candy appeal, but this speaker has also been designed to take outdoor life in its stride.
The rectangular tube frame has soft curves – so there are no sharp edges – and the strong, durable casing is covered with tough, scratch-resistant silicon rubber.
A simple control interface occupies one end of the tube, with a control panel located at the other, beneath a protective cover plate.
On each side of the tube, the internal speakers are securely shielded by a mesh grille with further protection provided by the lattice framework of the outer casing. The MC-201 can be used in both horizontal and vertical positions, and finishing touches are provided by a MonkeyCanz logo visible top and bottom when ‘standing tall’, and a colour-matched carabinier clip.
Portable party power
Not only does the IPX-4 rated MonkeyCanz Bluetooth speaker have both the necessary rugged construction and the essential dust-proof, shock-proof and water-resistant credentials required for a beachside party, it also has the music-power too.
A substantial 10-watt audio output is provided by the MC-201’s configuration of two 40-mm speaker drivers, each with an audio output of 5 watts, plus omnidirectional dual passive bass radiators.
This array delivers reliable and undistorted high-quality sounds right across the audio spectrum, with plenty of sparkling presence plus a characterful bass end to give an authentic danceable kick to those familiar floor-filling basslines.
Offering the latest Bluetooth 4.0 specification which supports the A2DP, AVRCP, HSP and HFP protocols, the MonkeyCanz Bluetooth speaker provides high-quality audio streaming which will delight music fans.
Covering a wireless range of 10 metres (33 feet), the MonkeyCanz speaker also has NFC (Near Field Communication) which allows the latest mobile audio devices to enjoy fast, one-touch pairing. Older non-Bluetooth equipment, such as MP3 players, can still be hooked up to the unit’s aux input via the included audio cable.
Thanks to its high-end Bluetooth specification which also has low power demands, the MonkeyCanz speaker also enjoys longer battery life, and thus offers a generous 12 hours of music playback from just a single 3-hour charge of its high-capacity lithium-ion battery.
And in addition, it features a built-in microphone for convenient hands-free calls. Not only does this help you to stay in touch with your friends, it also means that with the MC-201 you can seamlessly interact with the latest voice-control apps such as Siri and ‘OK Google’ search functions.
