01/04/2016 - Hercules WAE OUTDOOR RUSH: 2016 Innovation Awards Honoree at CES in Las Vegas.

Press release - CES Unveiled, Las Vegas, January 4, 2016 - Dedicated to the world of extreme sports, Hercules, the audio specialist, is adding to its line of wireless speakers made for riders with the new WAE OUTDOOR RUSH. Hercules is extremely proud to be receiving the highly-coveted CES 2016 Innovation Awards Honoree distinction at CES in Las Vegas, for its rugged new speaker equipped with Bluetooth® wireless technology.

WAE OUTDOOR RUSH has been singled out as one of the most innovative speakers in its category. Completely dust-resistant and protected from immersion up to 1 meter in depth (IP67-certified), resistant to seawater corrosion, featuring a built-in FM radio, buoyant, able to charge a smartphone, compatible with any attachment system and pumping out impressive sound quality for its size, WAE OUTDOOR RUSH is the full-featured wireless speaker that lets riders enjoy their favorite music when they hit the waves and the slopes!

OCEANPROOF
WAE OUTDOOR RUSH, with its IP67 certification, is not only immersion-resistant (able to withstand being submerged in 1 meter of water for 30 minutes), but also "oceanproof": its metallic grilles are specially treated to protect them against corrosion by salty seawater, via a nickel electroplating process. Lab tests have demonstrated up to 2 years of resistance when the speaker is completely immersed in seawater!
Also providing full protection against dust, sand and snow, WAE OUTDOOR RUSH is the perfect companion for all your training sessions, when preparing for competitions or for just kicking back and relaxing. Whether you’re into surfing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, standup paddleboarding, skiing, snowboarding or any other boardsports, WAE OUTDOOR RUSH lets you experience your outdoor activities with even more intensity - accompanied by your favorite tunes!

Enjoy non-stop music, thanks to the built-in FM radio
WAE OUTDOOR RUSH is the only wireless speaker in its category to feature FM radio. This means that even in the riskiest and wettest conditions (where no one would want to bring their fragile smartphone along) - or in situations where you just don’t want to run down your phone’s battery - the music never has to stop!
The speaker’s FM tuner ensures high-quality reception and lets you easily find and tune in to radio stations in your vicinity, no matter where you are in the world. Just press the "FM" button on the speaker or in the WAE app to start scanning for stations: the information is then displayed in the app, on your smartphone’s screen. You can even switch between stations directly on the speaker itself. The FM radio works independently of your phone, allowing you to leave it in a safe place when necessary - and still be able to listen to music, whatever kind of conditions you find yourself in.
The speaker’s radio antenna is internal, so there’s no risk of breaking it when you’re out enjoying your sports activities.

RIDEPROOF: Powerful and rock-solid
Although it’s compact in size and highly portable (weighing in at just 0.7 pounds/320 grams), the power and sound quality put out by the WAE OUTDOOR RUSH in outdoor conditions will blow you away. Its rechargeable battery allows for 12 hours of continuous use. WAE OUTDOOR RUSH also features a very handy "Boost Charger" mode, allowing you to use all of the speaker’s power to charge your phone if its battery is weak in an emergency situation.
Thanks to its built-in standard screw thread, WAE OUTDOOR RUSH is compatible with any attachment system. Hercules already offers great packs of accessories for its WAE Outdoor range of speakers, and will be releasing new ones specially designed for water sports and mountain sports as well.
So get ready to experience all of your rides more intensely than ever, while listening to your favorite music! Ready for the ultimate adrenaline rush?

Hercules WAE OUTDOOR RUSH will be available from April 2016 at a suggested retail price of $129.99 .
