Hercules is now releasing its second creation in this range - the WAE* BTP02 - designed for smartphone addicts who never leave home without their music library. A fully mobile device, the BTP02 boasts a record-breaking 20-hour autonomy (at medium volume), while its rear grip enables users to take it everywhere, in all circumstances.

Listening to music should remain a simple and emotional moment, that should never be altered by technological evolution. The WAE* app designed by Hercules adheres to this philosophy by allowing users to forget all about the technical aspects of the wireless experience and focus on enjoying listening.

It allows users to easily control the speaker’s volume and effects, to listen to the many webradios included free with the application and to adjust the equalizer’s settings to perfect their music’s tone.

Every time this application is launched on Android, it automatically activates the smartphone’s Bluetooth connection, which then automatically connects to the speaker.

The WAE* application is included with the BTP02, BTP05, WBT06 and BT03 speakers.
