Parrot Bluetooth Sound System – adieu to cables

With the world getting musical around you, its time to bid farewell to those entangling pair of speakers which always irritate you when it comes to setup. Parrot Bluetooth sound system is classis pair of speakers, white-lacquered bookshelf speakers with dimensions of 11.5 x 7.5 x 8.5 inches. They are linked to each other and to an audio source via Bluetooth wireless standard.

The speakers are essentially identical, and working with three buttons: volume up, volume down, and Bluetooth sync. The black-fabric covers on the speaker are removable and can be adhered magnetically gives a nice touch.

  • Speaker features digital two-channel Class-D amplifier yielding 60-watt output.
  • The built-in Bluetooth 2.0 includes the three key Bluetooth components
    1. EDR (Enhanced Data Rate),
    2. A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile
    3. AVRCP (Audio/Video Remote Control Profile)

Giving out decent-sounding stereo audio. The speakers' firmware is upgradeable (via the Bluetooth link from a PC).

Turn ons:

  • The ability of Stereo speakers to stream audio wirelessly from Bluetooth devices via USB dongle for streaming from PCs
  • Built-in amplifiers and line-in jacks comes for wired connections
  • Upgradeable firmware

However Wireless" speakers still require one power cord for each speaker with Bluetooth pairing being finicky process. You need to have an optional dongle to stream wirelessly from iPod.

Gist: Parrot's Bluetooth Sound System is although an expensive one, however if you're looking forward to get rid of labyrinth of wires it is the best set of attractive and good-sounding wireless speakers to stream music from your Bluetooth phone, PC, or--with optional dongle--iPod. It is definitely the value for money product.
