If you’re a fan of We Got Kidz, I’m sure you’re well aware of my family’s love of music and dancing. In a lot of our YouTube videos you can catch us having impromptu dance parties and “shaking our tail feather” to our favorite jams. We just love music and believe that a good playlist can be the soundtrack of our lives.
Last year I was able to test and giveaway SOL REPUBLIC’s on-ear headphones. I rarely leave the house to go to the grocery store without a good playlist; and when I received my SOL REPUBLIC headphones last year, I started trying to find reasons to leave the house so that I could rock my headphones and listen to my music the way it’s supposed to be listened to.
Well, SOL REPUBLIC is back at it again having sent me one of their newest music delivery devices: the wireless Motorola portable Bluetooth speaker called the SOL Republic Deck. Priced at $200 (currently marked down to $149.99) this is the Cadillac of portable speakers… in a compact car body.
The Deck’s bold physical features and design clearly scream for the younger set coming in neon yellow, blue, red, and black and boasting a huge SOL logo that lights up when your phone rings. Yes, you read that correctly. The Deck lights up when your phone rings and you have the option of using the Deck’s speakers to answer your phone calls.
I use this feature frequently as the husband loves to interrupt me and the kid’s music listening calling frequently throughout the day to check on the twins and me. Now the twins can get in on the conversation!
Needless to say, the Deck would make the perfect gift for your teen heading off to college, or your tween who’s recently fallen hard for sitting in her room and blasting her favorite tunes while she studies.
I think the best feature – which plays into the younger set’s love of social media – is the Deck’s social listening feature called Heist Mode™ which enables you to pair up to five devices to the Deck.
So say Bobby has a few friends over and they want to listen to some jams (if that’s what they call it these days). With Heist Mode™ enabled, any of the friends can interrupt a song with a song choice of their own. Everyone can be a DJ! (Which may annoy you, but Bobby and his friends will think it’s the dopest thing ever.)
Let me not forget about the most important part of the speaker’s features: the sound. It’s absolutely amazing. Even at the loudest setting (which I have a tendency to set it on) you can’t hear any vibration, rattling, or interference. It’s clear as a bell. The way the speaker is set up, (vertically) you can place the Deck anywhere you like and it fills the entire room with sound. It’s so amazing what technology can do these days.
Here’s a super cute “trailer” showcasing me and the family’s experience with the SOL REPUBLIC Deck:
I, of course, want you and your family to be able to get in on the fun as well; so below you have the opportunity to enter for your chance to win a SOL REPUBLIC Deck of your own!
