AR for Her

You know, this actually makes perfect sense to me. I’m a guy who enjoys quality in my audio products: good sound, solid craftsmanship. The ladies in my life (specifically, my wife and daughter) like things that are pretty and/or purple. If a speaker system doesn’t look good sitting on the bookshelf, then it’ll be sitting in a box. If you’re in the same situation, the new Acoustic Research AR for Her line means you won’t have to sacrifice audio for fashion.

The first release in the collection is a wireless Bluetooth speaker that “… combines trends from the runway with crisp, clear and portable sound.” No matter what you think of the speaker shape and surface, it’s certainly unlike anything we’ve seen before. Leather? On a speaker?

The AR for her speaker’s svelte tufted look comes in black and white to compliment a classic look or city chic style. The line also includes a white and pink polka-dot speaker for a fun and flirty touch, while a leopard print version brings out a fashionista’s wild side.

The collection will receive an updated look each season to capture the latest runway styles. The Bluetooth speaker wirelessly connects to all compatible devices to stream your favorite music, has a built in microphone for hands-free calling and features a rechargeable battery for extra portability. These features, along with a lightweight size and an optional carrying strap make it easy to transport the speaker from room to room while getting ready, or out on the town for exceptional sound day or night.

Tieraney and Sophie will be sad to see there’s no purple option, but maybe next season, right?

For the lady who also demands functionality from her audio equipment, the AR for Her bluetooth speaker features:

  • The ability to stream music from up to 30 feet away with 3.5mm input for multiple connecting options.
  • A built-in microphone that allows for hands-free calls with answer/end button.
  • Play, pause, track and volume controls built into speaker.
  • A rechargeable battery that provides up to 8 hours of music.

The AR for Her collection will be available for purchase spring 2014, and additional functional tech accessories will be reimagined for women to round out the collection.
