Pordenone, Italy, 1 December 2015 – BRIONVEGA is delighted to present BRIONVEGA WEARiT ts 217, the first ‘wearable’ Bluetooth speaker that you can carry with you at all times. Masterfully designed by Michael Young,
WEARiT ts217 was born from an interpretation of the BRIONVEGA ts207, a true icon of the 1960s. With its lively soul and compact dimensions, the new BRIONVEGA WEARiT ts 217 represents a magnificent combination of product form and sound quality. The idea behind this innovative concept is well summed up in the words of designer Michael Young: “The aim of this project is not so much to enter the sector of cheap and short-lived technological gadgets, a market that moves too fast to create valuable objects that are meant to last. Instead, we have created a high quality product that concisely reflects the important value of BRIONVEGA’s brand DNA, but in current terms’. Not the latest technological gadget but the latest technology applied to an object destined to last that will become an integral part of our daily activities. The BRIONVEGA WEARiT ts 217 stands out from all other loudspeakers, not only because of the unique style that has always characterised all BRIONVEGA products, but also because of the new concept of “wearable music” that it introduces, for the first time ever, to the world of audio. BRIONVEGA WEARiT ts 217 is more than just a speaker. In the product packaging, in fact, there is a handbag-case that transforms the Brionvega WEARiT ts 217 into a true fashion accessory. The bag not only perfectly holds the speaker and protects it when travelling, but also ‘camouflages’ it, making it an integral part of the outifit. Something completely unique in the speaker scene. A choice of three different colours – tobacco, blue and purple – makes the speaker perfectly adaptable to any style. The bag can also be accessorized with a shoulder strap or a handle strap, a double option to complete any outfit with a glamorous and trendy touch. The BRIONVEGA WEAIRiT ts 217 is equipped with a hands-free speakerphone with microphone so that you can answer calls in total freedom and hear every word very clearly at the touch of a button on the front of the speaker. Once the conversation is over, the music automatically resumes. A longer battery life, for uninterrupted listening, up to 24 hours – depending on the playback volume – recharges with most USB sources. Also of note is the power-bank function for recharging any smartphone in case of need. Its size and low weight – 12.5×7.5×3.5 for 400g – make it perfect for taking everywhere. All this without sacrificing clear and powerful sound thanks to a high-efficiency 2-speaker system and a passive bass radiator.
