San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 21, 2013
Cambridge SoundWorks, makers of the Ultra-Portable wireless Bluetooth speakers the OontZ and OontZ Angle (the #1 best-selling Bluetooth speaker at Amazon.com), announces another revolutionary product: the OontZ XL. The OontZ XL ('Extra Large') portable Bluetooth speaker is about twice the size of the OontZ and OontZ Angle, producing three times the output. The XL is ideal for parties and larger gatherings, making it possible to fill a large space/room with high quality sound. The OontZ XL is exceptionally lightweight and comfortable to hold and carry. The speaker weighs just 1.85 pounds. By comparison, the SoundLink II is over 50 percent heavier and the Big Jambox is over 40 percent heavier than the OontZ XL. The OontZ XL feature set includes an integrated microphone for wireless hands-free speakerphone calling and a 5 Volt USB charging connector that allows you to charge your phone while listening to music. The OontZ XL has a market disrupting introductory price of only $99.99, far less than the price of the competition.
Similar to the Cambridge SoundWorks OontZ Angle, Amazon's #1 best-selling Bluetooth speaker, the OontZ XL connects wirelessly to any Bluetooth® enabled device so you can play your music, movies and games from your smartphone, tablet or PC.
"We designed the OontZ XL to deliver the high quality sound with rich bass that Cambridge SoundWorks is known for, and we engineered it to be surprisingly lightweight given its powerful output and with a comfortable feel so you want to take it with you," said Craig McHugh, President & CEO of Cambridge SoundWorks. "Competitive products to the OontZ XL such as the SoundLink II and the Big Jambox also sound very good, but we sell our OontZ at a dramatically lower price. It is rare to see a technology product that is compared to competitive products costing up to three times as much. We sell factory direct and our customers can purchase the OontZ XL only at TheOontZ.com and Amazon.com; we do not have to inflate the price of our speakers to cover the retailer's margin requirements and we pass these savings directly to our customers. With quality sound and powerful output combined with a mass market price, the OontZ XL will change the way people listen to music with their friends when they are at home, at the beach, in the backyard, and everywhere they go."

The OontZ XL Overview:
*High Quality Sound, Deep Rich Bass, Powerful Volume:
The Cambridge SoundWorks industrial designers and acoustical engineers worked in tandem to deliver a high fidelity speaker with excellent bass response, yet still light enough to be ultra-portable and loud enough to fill even large rooms. They first designed an enclosure for the OontZ XL that is ultra-rigid, eliminating unwanted resonances, which could otherwise cause distortion in the sound. They utilized the soft curve design first introduced with the OontZ ultra-portable wireless for the front of the speaker alleviating the potential for diffraction problems that are caused by sharp corners. They also incorporated the unique hemispherical design for the rear of the OontZ XL substantially reducing the potential for distortion and vibration that would result from the moving air mass within the enclosure. The acoustical engineers then expertly matched the custom enclosure with two proprietary precision drivers that provide sharp highs and clear mid-range. They implemented a tri-passive radiator design to deliver deep rich bass. The design layout of the three passive radiators has one facing forward and two facing backward serving to further reduce the potential for sound distortion and vibration, especially at the loudest volume.
*Portable light Weight Ergonomic Design - Only 1.85 pounds and is comfortable in your hand:
At only 1.85 pounds the OontZ XL is substantially lighter than its competitors and the curved design on the OontZ XL makes it very comfortable to carry so you will want to take it everywhere you go.
We achieved the light-weight in part because an ultra-rigid architecture for the enclosure for the OontZ XL allowing for the use of lightweight materials and thinner cavity walls. The hemispherical design of the back of the OontZ XL and the soft curves of the front allow it to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand, so you will want to take it everywhere.
*Plays all day and you can charge your phone right from the OontZ XL:
The OontZ XL has a built-in Rechargeable battery, providing up to 10 hours of Play time. Battery life does vary for a number of reasons including volume and source. The OontZ XL was tested for battery life at approximately 70% volume over Bluetooth to arrive at this estimate.
But, how can you play all day when your iPhone or smartphone can only last a few hours when using Bluetooth. The OontZ Xl has a USB charging port that allows you to charge your phone using your devices USB charging cable. We have implemented the USB Charging Port, so you can charge your Bluetooth device while you play your music, movies and games from your phone, tablet, mobile device. Charging your phone while playing will reduce the battery play time, but you can still get up to seven hours of playtime. When you are finished from a day of having fun and listening to your OontZ XL, your phone can still be fully charged.
