HGG2014: Portable Bluetooth Speakers - 808 Audio: Canz

Our 19 year-old is famously difficult to buy for. Clothes are a desired item, but teens are pretty particular about their style. There are plenty of tech options, but most of the ones he'll mention are pretty pricey. So that part of his list covers maybe the one big gift. He's listed a couple of video game titles as well, so that's done, but we still want a few surprises under the tree for him. Gadgets. That's where it's at!

The 808 Audio: Canz

The 808 CANZ Bluetooth Wireless Speaker is a highly portable (read small), great sounding, portable Bluetooth speaker.  I have tried some not so great portable speakers for my phone, so I went in a bit wary, but turns out I was very impressed with the sound. This one has since been re-packaged and set aside to appear for the Teen at Christmas.

What I like? Super easy to pair with any Bluetooth enabled device, clear and crisp sound quality, and streams music from up to 30 feet away. I tested that last part out by wandering around the house with my phone. It connected over the entire main floor (about 500 square feet). The 808 Canz has a rechargeable internal battery (usb charging cable included, of course) that lasts for up to 6 hours of play time. In addition to the Bluetooth pairing, the Canz has a 3.5mm input for wired connections to non-Bluetooth devices. I also like the sleek look and durability of its anodized aluminum casing, and its height at just over 3 inches. It can go anywhere with you.

Available in blue, white and red, the 808 Audio: Canz retails at Amazon.ca for $39.99. You can also get it in those colours or black from www.808Audio.com, for $29.99 USD. This would make a great gift for any teens on your list, or any tech or music lover.
