We recently had a listen to DBest London's tiny Bluetooth speaker, the 4001, which the company billed as the "world's smallest Bluetooth hi-fi system." Well, the U.K.-based company has more products in the pipeline, including the larger--and better-sounding--PS4501, which DBest is calling the "Terminator of mini speakers."
We're not sure what that means, but in its metallic version, it does look like a high-tech grenade. The speaker ships with two different-colored speaker covers in the box and will be offered in a variety of colors when it ships this spring (the metallic covers can be swapped out for a set of simple black covers or you can go two-tone if you want, with black on the bottom and silver on the top, or vice versa).
The PS4501 is also an MP3 player but you do have to add your own memory. Most people will use it with an iPhone, iPad, or Android smartphone or tablet, though it works with any Bluetooth-enabled device. No word on pricing yet or an exact release date here in the U.S., but we suspect it will be $79.99 or less (or at least that's what we think it should cost).
