If you have a tech head in your life, The Jacket by Altec is a perfect gift to consider this holiday, especially if they are begging for something new and different. Not only is it portable but packs a whole lot of sound in this compact bluetooth speaker. Hubby is always presenting me with things that I never knew existed and getting offered to review this bluetooth speaker couldn’t have come at a better time.
There are so many things he loves about The Jacket. First, it is durable and gives off high quality sound. It pairs with your bluetooth enabled devices and only takes a second to connect. Once you connect the first time, The Jacket remembers up to 8 different devices. There are no wires to connect so you are free to move it about freely wherever you go around the house. Hubby uses it mainly at work and says his music can be heard clearly throughout several rooms in the entire store. It gives off a nice amount of bass although he thinks it could be just a bit more. However this is coming from someone who really likes to blast his music
One awesome feature of The Jacket is the ability to change the skin. It came with a black and red skin that you can change however you please. Perfect for those that love to change scenery on their electronic devices. The Jacket has a pretty decent battery life and hubby says it lasts about 1 1/2 to 2 hours before needing to be charged. He does use his a lot during work so it depends on the use of The Jacket.
Overall, The Jacket is an excellent bluetooth speaker that is compact, durable, portable, and gives off excellent clear quality sound. What a great holiday gift for your techie. The Jacket can be purchased for $129.99 here.
