Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 02, 2014

Soundfreaq, maker of the critically acclaimed line of wireless speakers, today announces the availability of Sound Rise, a modern Bluetooth bedroom speaker and alarm clock. First unveiled at CES 2014 and named a CES “Best of Show” finalist by iLounge, Sound Rise is an updated version of Soundfreaq’s original bedroom speaker, maintaining the familiar features found in old-school alarm clocks, but with much improved functionality and added features to complement today’s modern lifestyle. An all-black version of Sound Rise will be available for $69 at Target and Target.com. A taupe/wood version of Sound Rise will available for $79 on Soundfreaq.com and Amazon.com.

Sound Rise streams award-winning audio via Bluetooth and is equipped with a universal USB power port, allowing users to charge their smartphones. Sound Rise also offers dual alarms with weekday/weekend settings and gradually increasing volume, allowing users to wake up gently to the radio, music or alarm chime.

“Nightstands quickly get cluttered with lots of things so we wanted to create a simple, smart, and compact modern alarm clock that looks beautiful in your bedroom and brings more music into your life,” said Matthew Paprocki, co-founder/creative director of Soundfreaq. “Many people are using the same alarm clock that they’ve had for years, way before they started using a smartphone, while others just rely on their smartphone as their alarm. Sound Rise was designed for everyone, offering classic alarm and radio functionality as well as wireless streaming for in-bed entertainment and a universal USB phone charger, so everyone can wake up ready for the day with a fully charged phone. While you may be upgrading your phone every few years, we hope that Sound Rise will be a constant bedside companion that wakes you up with a everyday with a song.”

Sound Rise’s upright design reduces the size of its footprint, taking up less room on valuable nightstand real estate. It’s also built with adjustable display settings that ranges from extra bright to total blackout for those who don’t want any light coming from their alarm clock. Sound Rise’s display is also designed with a custom font that optimizes readability without filling a room with excess light. Sound Rise includes a special dedicated button to use either as a sleep timer to fall asleep to music for a set period of time or as a nap timer to nap for 15, 30, 60, 90 or 120-minutes.

Sound Rise also offers line-in for any device with a 3.5mm standard headphone jack including iPhone, iPods, Android devices and tablets. Users can also enjoy FM radio with clear digital tuning for convenient device-free listening.

Sound Rise continues to deliver Soundfreaq’s impressive audio quality, making it the perfect bedroom speaker to enjoy music while getting ready for the day and to watch videos or movies while in bed.
