This lovely little device got dropped off at my front door the other day and I can’t tell you how much fun I had exploring the different sounds the bass can create on different surfaces it was placed on. Basically what it does is act as portable bass speaker for iPods, iPhones/Blackberry’s, Laptops, MACS, portable DVD player. The WOWee ONE uses a new patented Gel Audio technology which turns ordinary surfaces into subwoofers. They retail at R599 and can be brought through the website or you could give us a shout and we can hook you up as many as you wanted.
I ended up running from the kitchen counter to the dustin bin, to the front door then to the fridge. I was running around like crazy kid on Christmas sticking it to every surface I could. I must say that I found the wooden kitchen cupboards had a very deeper resonating bass, it almost made you feel like you outside the club but made a very insane sound effect. The counter was a marble one and literally swallowed all the sound which wasn’t ideal so we moved it to the table in the living room and from a very soft sounding speaker it literally fulled the whole room up as the bass kicked against the living room table.
I had a choice between the white and the black and chose white, because it looked slicker. I had to lend it to a mate to see what he thought and I had a suspicion that he would come back with the same views I had:
I have never had so much fun playing with the WOWee One, the bass on this thing is ridiculous for it’s size. I am more than impressed with it’s power. I think the fact that it can be used through pretty much any portable device makes it that much more useful and easier to carry with you. The device itself is very cool, looks good and worked like a charm. I wish I didn’t have to give it back to Kreg
