Previously, we reviewed the FoxL Bluetooth portable speaker, agreeing with Time magazine, who declared it the "Top 10 Gadget of the Year."
While it's hard to improve on perfection, Sound matters has done that with the foxLv2 by shrinking the size (5.6" wide x 2.2" high x 1.4" deep), increasing the rechargeable battery-time to 12 hours or more, but keeping the price at $199,the same as the original model.
The new "Foxy" (our nickname for it) was created for the growing range of aptX equipped phones and tablets, (think Samsung, HTC, Motorola) and features dual 1-inch Linear Magnetic Drive "Twoofers" usually found in large expensive hi-fi speakers for remarkable clarity and range,and the bass kicks butt. (It uses the battery as a woofer,which results in a smoother, more powerful bass.)
There's the same built-in noise-canceling mic in this smaller version,too.
The perfect holiday gift for the audiofile on your list? May all your gifting be this easy.
