With the ever-changing mobility life, people are gradually giving up some traditional life style and have begun to use bigger sized touch screen smartphones or tablets for texting or audio/video chatting with friends, listening to music and browsing things on websites etc. However, smartphones can not replace all and even cause issues. Some heavy phone callers often feel painful in head, neck and arm when they hold a giant mobile phone for a long time talk due to cellular radiation. Sometimes when they are on the phone, they may also have to be strapped by USB cable for mobile phone charging because of too fast battery consumption. Even though mobile phone makers declare that there is circuit protection for charging when calling, mobile phone explosion still happens occasionally when talking while charged. On top of the dropped call experience on mobile phones, another complaint is when they want to relax with our favorite music loaded in our smartphone, they just can’t be satisfied with the limited sound quality or volume. Yet, they have to love smartphones compromisingly.

A Chinese manufacturer, Harda Group at CES 2014 just announced a world’s first design that can compensate all of those unpleasant experience for users of smartphones. The gadget is called Q9 Hybrid Bluetooth Speaker supposed to be used in the office, sitting room, bedroom, hotel and many other indoor places. It is just the right “partner” to smartphones/tablets. Here are details that Q9 can do:

Wireless Hi-Fi Music
Q9 is embodied with the latest CSR Bluetooth® 4.0 chipset for richer sound and longer time music streaming. The connection distance varies from 20 to 30 feet depending on smartphones. By adopting Maxim speaker amplifier IC and optimizing sound cavity design, Q9 can maximally filter the noise and offer Hi-Fi sound quality. The 3W output speaker will be more than enough to full-fill music within a room. Be ready to control the volume!

Hands-Free and Private Talk, 20 to 30 times less Cellular Radiation
After connected with smartphone, incoming call numbers will be reported by Q9 from its base. Just simply say “Yes” to answer the call. Or, on contrary, say ”No” to reject it. The other way of answering or rejecting it is the same that users typically do: push the multi-function button to pick up the call; push once again to hang up. If for a small phone conference, leave the handset on the base for hands free to get crystal clear sound from 360 degrees! Don’t worry that the receiving party may get echo sound or fuzzy sound---Q9 has superior noise cancellation design from mechanical and electronics. For a private talk, just pick up the handset to talk within 30 feet. It is like a landline phone but wireless and portable! Reports say that radiation volume of Bluetooth is just 20 to 30 times less than mobile phones. So, Q9 makes sense!

Well Organized Smartphone Charging
There is no USB cable strapping when on the phone now. Q9 has built-in USB charger in the base to charge user's smartphone via USB cable. While charging, user can switch to Q9 to continue the call. Hands free or Private, all is up to user.

Quick NFC™ Connection
Users don’t have to pair Q9 every time it is cut off when theyleave a long time. Put phone close to Q9, and NFC™ will help to pair them again. Check with the mobile phone resellers to see if mobile phones have NFC™.

Motional LED
The LED brightness is motional---changing from dim to bright all the time. More over, switch on the” button sound” on smartphone, and user will even see the LED reacts with every push on virtual buttons of smartphone.

More features can be found when using with iOS and Android smartphones and tablets.

MSRP of Padmate Q9 Hybrid Bluetooth® Speaker will be at 59.99US$. User will get the Speaker, a wall charger, a USB cable, warranty card and manual.
