Wish your Bluetooth speaker had more bass? The Volcano is off to change that

Wish your Bluetooth speaker had more bass?  The Volcano is off to change that
There are some pretty nice wireless speakers on the market today. The Beatbox Portable by Beats is a handy set. The Nokia JBL series is not too shabby either. Jawbone makes a great series of Jambox speakers from the new Mini Jambox to the nifty Big Jambox.

There is another commonality with some of these speakers, most of them cost north of $150 and some have price tags closer to $300. Granted, the higher priced speakers have better sound, but not everyone has three bills laying around (plus tax).

The larger speakers are not the most convenient to carry around with you too if you are on the move and want to bring a bunch of stuff to the beach, the pool, the picnic, et al. The smaller speakers are easier to carry around, but if you like a deep sounds to you music, chances are you will not really hear it or feel it.

The designers behind the Volcano claim to have found the solution to bring on the bass. “The bass is finally here.” The Volcano plans to be the next wireless speaker that brings the music with all the rich sound you want in a small, easily portable, Bluetooth speaker.

If you get on board through the Indiegogo campaign, you will be able to get The Volcano for only $79, with perks progressing from there. The campaign has an easily reachable goal of $50,000. If you have been wanting a decent sounding portable speaker, but have not been too thrilled with spending a lot of money, the Volcano might be just what you are looking for.

interesting but unlikely.... it requires Line of sight to be able to reach the device... and also if you want to turn off the lights (at night) and still want wireless network... what do you do?

Now that's what I'm talking about. Not some half-hearted speaker like the one HTC released.

Good quality headphones / earphones are the best. I need personal sound or the BIG sound. Not the middle thing like this one... my personal opinion ofc. I see such BT speakers very rarely around.

You forgot to mention that there is no good sound quality to be found in a pair of beats. The low quality artificial sounding bass completely drowns out the already low quality mids and highs. Beats are a joke.

Beats sound like distorted farts, their sound is abysmal. I'm just saying don't overdo the bass seeing as these speakers focus on bass, I assume fro the article and the video.

You would think it would atleast have good highs since tweeters can be pretty small but no.

When you pay for Beats, you're purely paying for the name (maybe the looks too.)

i have no need for wireless speakers. Headphones are more my thing. Why cant they make ear bud headphones more bassy without changing the physical design from ear buds to ear plugs. My ears are not freakishly big like Dr Dre's.

Physical limiations of the driver make it so it impossible to do subwoofer quality bass like a good pair of headphones can do.

try headphones if you want more bass. Has anyone heard of the Parrot Zik? I have about a dozen bluetooth headsets and the Parrot Zik has the best sound. Just saying
