04/25/2013 - Hercules unveils the WAE* BTP03 and WAE* BTP03 Mini

London, April 25, 2013 - Music has always been an absolute passion for Hercules. Nothing else has quite the same power to conjure up such strong emotions in millions of people worldwide, and bring us all so much enjoyment.

With this in mind, Hercules created the WAE - Wireless Audio Experience range, a complete line of wireless speaker systems that takes listening to music via a computer, smartphone or tablet to the next level.

Since everyone has their own unique tastes and expectations, the WAE* range is expanding to include two new models by June: the BTP03 and the BTP03 Mini.

 

WAE* BTP03 -  Compact and powerful, with super battery life

Based on the same compact and modern design as the existing BT03 (just 9.3 inches/23.5 cm wide), the new BTP03 includes a high-capacity rechargeable battery. It can stream nearly 15 hours of music from your smartphone, tablet or any other device equipped with the Bluetooth® wireless technology (at 80% volume). Despite its small size, it’s one of the most powerful speakers in its category, pumping out 10 watts RMS. The BTP03 provides accurate sound quality: enjoy lifelike bass response, plus realistic mid-range and treble performance. And for even more output power, you can connect multiple BTP03 speakers to one another for joint playback.

Thanks to its built-in mic, it also includes a hands-free calling function: take a call, and then pick up listening to your music right where you left off. It couldn’t be easier! Just press the top right part of the speaker - or even give it a tap with your elbow, if you’re in the middle of washing dishes or painting the living room! Connect the speaker to a hi-fi system (using a mini-jack cable), and it turns into a Bluetooth® receiver that lets you stream all the music from your smartphone or tablet and listen to it on your hi-fi.

The Bluetooth® A2DP multipoint technology lets you connect two phones at the same time: it takes just a few seconds to switch from one phone to the other (this depends on the phones’ connection times). To let you control the speaker, Hercules has developed the "WAE* Remote" - an extremely easy-to-use app that’s compatible with both iOS (4.0 and higher) and AndroidTM (2.2 and higher).

Thanks to its compact size and excellent battery life, the BTP03 will follow you everywhere: in every room of your home, and on weekend getaways and vacations too. It will be available from June 2013 at a suggested retail price of £109.99.

 

WAE* BTP03 Mini - A musical powerhouse... at just 320 grams

At barely over 16 cm wide (6.5 inches) and weighing in at just 320 grams, you’ll be amazed by the battery life and audio clarity of such a small sound system.

Inspired by the design of the BT03 and BTP03 models, this new super-compact Bluetooth® 2.0 speaker is easy to slip into your bag, allowing you to take it with you wherever you go and wirelessly stream all of the music stored on your smartphone or tablet. Designs are available in 3 colours: Black/Orange, Red and Pink.

Thanks to its 14 hours of battery life (at 80% volume), you can enjoy listening to your favorite tunes all day long.

The BTP03 Mini features 2 active drivers and dual bass reflex ports, providing clear sound. For even more output power, you can connect multiple BTP03 Mini speakers to one another for joint playback.

Thanks to its built-in mic, it also includes a hands-free calling function: take a call, and then pick up listening to your music right where you left off. It couldn’t be easier!

Connect the speaker to a hi-fi system (using a mini-jack cable), and it turns into a Bluetooth® receiver that lets you stream all the music from your smartphone or tablet and listen to it on your hi-fi.

All controls are easily accessible on top of the BTP03 Mini, and Hercules has also developed t he "WAE* Remote" - an extremely easy-to-use app that’s compatible with both iOS (4.0 and higher) and AndroidTM (2.2 and higher), providing you with another very convenient way to use the speaker.

The BTP03 Mini will be available from June 2013, at a suggested retail price of just £69.99.
