A portable Bluetooth stereo speaker that takes voice commands too

Boot Camp feature for Friday, October 5, 2012

A portable Bluetooth stereo speaker that takes voice commands too.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   More and more portable Bluetooth speakers are arriving all the time, letting you unplug the headphones and enjoy music anywhere.   The latest from Monster is the ClarityHD Micro, and it delivers very good sound, while adding speakerphone and voice command functions.   Head Monster Noel Lee…

“It talks to you.  You get a phone call, would you like to accept or reject?  It will give you battery commands.  What’s my battery level?  Put it in pair mode.  And it talks back to you.  It’s not super intelligent, it’s not like Siri.  But for 200 dollars, it’s the next best thing to it.”

If you prefer headphones, either in ear or on ear, Monster is also coming out with a new line of triangular shaped models it calls DNA.  You can find us at BootCamp.com.  I’m Fred Fishkin.
