I think the days of listening music on CDs & USB devices are fast numbered as we all enjoying streaming music online these days. With the the need to power audio on mobile devices, the adoption of bluetooth speakers in India is rapidly rising with music listeners in the country, being split across two categories: “The Die-hard JBL Flip lovers” and the affluential ones who prefer “The Bose Sound Link Mini”. Bose is by far the best in the league and has little or no competition! However, it’s iconic status comes at a high cost which literally makes it out of reach of many.
In the under 10,000 price bracket JBL flip series has reached a cult status as it’s capable of generating extremely loud sound with a very good bass effect. The Flip has 2 variants, the original Flip and its successor JBL Flip II.
Nude Audio Move series, launched recently in India in collaboration with Brand Eyes Pvt. Ltd. is a smart option for music lovers who are also fashion conscious. The bluetooth speaker is selling through the retail outlets of Intersection stores in India and is available online for purchase on Intersection.in and Flipkart.
Nude Audio Move is available in two sizes Nude Audio Move M and Nude Audio Move L and as the name suggests both have different sizes fitting different purposes. I like to play loud music and the Nude Audio with its 2 drivers and a sub-woofer is capable of blowing a big room with its sound quality. Both the speakers are available in two colour choices, Mint & Coral with Nude Audio Move L priced at Rs. 6,399/- at an inaugural discount of 20% on Flipkart.
I won’t get into the tech-specs you can google and read that but a couple of things I really liked as a former JBL flip user are its battery back-up and USB connectivity. JBL Flip has a DC charger which is a convenience problem and has relatively small backup of 5 hours. Nude Audio Move on the other hand has an astounding 8-hour lithium ion battery which is huge. You could survive for long-time without the need to charge!!
With its supreme looks, sound output and killer price I think Nude Audio is one beast of a device. It’s large for sound output but compact for space. In my opinion it is a perfect replacement for your home audio system.
However, if you’re short on space and have a budget crunch, you can consider the smaller version i.e. The Nude Audio Move M series. It comes at a throw-away price of Rs. 3,279 on Flipkart. Now this is 1500 grand cheaper than JBL Flip and this means a lot for low budget consumers.
A nylon carrying cord makes the Bluetooth speaker both portable and versatile — hang it, clip it, toss it, lean it or lay it flat.
With it’s uber-cool looks, freedom of wireless music, competitive price and a unique name to remember, Nude Audio is here to put serious dents in the JBL flip market. I would say just go grab it, as these are dope speakers and you’d be obsessed with yours 🙂
