SGSG-Radio Shack Review and Giveaway!!



Gift shopping for some people can be difficult, but if there's anyone who enjoys everything techie on your list this year, then I suggest you visit your local Radio Shack-or shop online at www.radioshack.com-to find the perfect gift. I love browsing through Radio Shack, checking out all the neat new "toys", and adding items to my wish-list. So, I was excited when Radio Shack sent me 2 great items for review; the Auvio Expandable Bluetooth Speaker, and Auvio Elite Headphones!

The Auvio Expandable Bluetooth Speaker is, quite honestly, a must-have for someone like me. I enjoy listening to music no matter where I am, or what I am doing. If I'm exercising, I have a whole little setup to carry along my iPod and enjoy my favorite songs. If I'm washing dishes in the kitchen, or doing some deep-scrubbing in the bathroom, I always bring along my iPod! Now, carrying some extra speakers for added volume is what gets difficult, because while I do have a portable speaker system, it's a little too large to be comfortable moving around constantly. So, when I saw how small yet powerful the Auvio Bluetooth Speaker was, I knew I had found the perfect accessory! This speaker is literally tiny-less than 5 inches high, and weighing in at a whopping 0.2 pounds! However, don't let the size fool you-this little guy packs a nice punch, with the volume going quite high. In fact, at only half volume on my computer, it was still over my comfortable listening level, so don't think it won't be loud enough! 


The bluetooth aspect is great as well, as it means no more messing with cords. Simply turn on your device's bluetooth feature, select the Auvio speaker, and you'll be paired and ready to go in about 30 seconds. However, if you'd like to use this with a device that doesn't have bluetooth, you can plug it in via the USB-to-mini-USB cord that comes in the package. Works great for use with my old iPod Classic!



Additionally, adding to the portability and easy-to-use features, this handy little speaker runs on rechargeable battery, so you don't need a power outlet nearby, or worry about buying new batteries after every use. It only takes a couple hours to fully charge, and runs for about 6-7 hours on a single charge.


As you can probably tell, I am fully in love with my Auvio Bluetooth Speaker, so I was excited and ready to be impressed by the Auvio Elite Headphones.  These come with a carrying case, extra tips (in different sizes) and clips to hook around your ears-perfect for use while walking, jogging, etc. The earbuds also feature a mic, so you can use them with an iPod Touch, smartphone, or other voice-controlled device. One thing I really love is the flat cable, rather than the typical rounded cables. This means they lay flat and stay out of my way during use! This is the perfect set of earbuds for while I'm exercising, as the cables don't get tangled up and in my way. The audio comes through crisp and clear, and sounds great! 

Check out these and other wonderful gift ideas at www.radioshack.com or visit your local store! You can't go wrong with a gift like this!
