Wireless Speakers – Aluratek Bump

 21 Dec 2010 - By Omar Yesid Mariño+

Wireless speakers seem to be all the rage with the in crowd this year.  Just like gaudy headphones and understated earbuds before them, wireless speakers have become a new status symbol among the technologically (and musically) inclined.  However, many of the models available are extremely pricey and require a significant investment.  Either that or they don’t work for a hill of beans.  The new wireless Bump speakers from Aluratek are, thankfully, neither pricey nor cheaply made.

There are three models available but the coolest (and most practical) is the AUWS01F.  This little machine receives a signal from a 2.4GHz wireless dongle (that just so happens to be plugged into your handy computer) and converts it into high-fidelity sound.  And for just $79.99 it won’t break anybody’s bank.

There’s a wired version too (the AMS01F) that features media player capabilities and relies on an audio line-in or a pre-loaded SD card for its library of tunes.  This model also sports a FM tuner but it’s not like anybody actually listens to the radio anymore.

While these Bump speakers from Aluratek don’t have all the bells and whistles of some of the wireless speakers we’ve seen, they also don’t come laden with such a heavy price tag.  You must answer for yourself the age-old question:  style or functionality.
