Soundcast Continues to Dominate Outdoor Sound with the VG7 and VGX Family

Posted

Summer is finally here, and you need an outdoor speaker capable of handling the demands of your adventurous lifestyle. Meet the Soundcast VGX family: a range of speakers dedicated to high performance audio in the wireless spectrum.

Soundcast’s VG1 & VG7 portable speakers wowed audiences at CES 2017, and for good reason: each truly outperforms any wireless loudspeaker in its class. With the launch of the VG1 & VG7, we saw an explosion of rave reviews from the press and the public. The VGX family has the audio quality you need to play your music inside or outside, regardless of the season.

Soundcast VG7 TravelYou can see the clear result of Soundcast’s extensive user research in the VG7. It is jam-packed with new features that dive head-first into the future of outdoor sound. Soundcast’s tremendous foresight shines with the speaker’s convenient USB power bank to charge portable devices. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had my wireless speaker fully charged, only to realize my phone battery was drained! This is the kind of innovation that makes Soundcast’s VGX line a forerunner in portable audio.

Stereo pairing is a feature that I love, and the VGX speakers use it to blow their competition out of the water. How? Well, a single VG7 already projects 360° of immersive sound, so two of them combined in stereo gives you a virtual surround sound experience! There really is nothing like it, but if you want something more portable, the VG1 will give you high-def audio in True Wireless Stereo at a fraction of the size – and STILL beat out the competition in its class.

Portable Outdoor Speakers

Between the VG7’s slick modern look and its new EQ presets, Soundcast has made a portable speaker that sounds as great indoors as it does outside. The push of a button can change your EQ from the indoor preset back to the outdoor preset, and you can hit the ol’ dusty trail with the VG7 in tow – blasting crystal clear audio all the way.

Soundcast set out to show the world that you don’t have to sacrifice audio quality to have a strong, weather-resistant outdoor speaker. They have proven with the VGX family that you can have it all; take hi-def audio wherever you go with the VG1 or VG7.
