NudeAudio Bares Its Sound to All

NudeAudio, a new-generation audio company whose founders have deep roots in product design, fashion and audio manufacturing, announces the launch of the NudeAudio brand and the global introduction of their debut collection of four portable speakers under the Move range.

The portable speakers are designed to fit listeners’ various size and sound needs, and all feature NudeAudio’s signature combination of clean, contemporary design and high quality sound. The NudeAudio Move range launches in two color pairings: charcoal/coral and gray/mint, both of which subtly reference the ‘on trend’ hues of the sports-fashion industry. The naming of the speakers makes another playful nod to the clothing world with the names S, M and L.

The “Move S” is the line’s ultra-portable pocket-sized speaker, which comes in both Bluetooth and 3.5mm wired versions. “Move M” takes things up a notch in terms of both size and bass, and the “Move L” offers the range’s biggest size, filling an entire room with rich, warm sound.

One of NudeAudio’s most distinctive design cues is a brightly colored carrying cord, available on all Move models, to emphasize and encourage easy transport and the joys of sharing music, video, gaming and other audio-related experiences with those around you.  All the speakers also come with a thick, durable silicone sleeve that is both tactile and protective.

The Bluetooth speakers use Bluetooth 3.0 technology and wirelessly stream music from any smartphone, tablet and most computers from up to 33 feet away, allowing users to have complete control from the palm of their hand. Each of the speakers has an eight-hour battery life.

Old continues with a few thoughts about today’s audio behaviors: “Bluetooth speakers are now the most popular technology format and the preferred way for people to listen to music out loud from their smartphone or tablet. The benefits are obvious as it allows the phone to stay close to the user, so they can use other functions like e-mail or Facebook while also listening to their music.”

NudeAudio speakers are available at Beyond the Box, Digital Walker, Digital Hub, Astrovision, AstroPlus, iStudio, Mobile1, iCon, Technoholics, Switch, District 32, iGig, JMB Albay and Rustans. Here are the SRPs of the speakers:

♦ The Move S (Portable wired speaker) – P1,290
♦ The Move S (Portable Bluetooth speaker) – P1,990
♦ The Move M (Portable Bluetooth speaker) – P2,990
♦ The Move L (Portable Bluetooth speaker) – P5,990

SHADOWS by Clarice Joyce Tan which she fondly described as inspired by ninjas: “strong yet elegant which this dress embodies.”

BLACK & WHITE creation by Richard Enriquez: a “structure simple” piece yet “strong with a woman’s essence on it.”

Michelle Marie Sacramento’s CURVE that as the title implies aims to emphasize the body’s natural curves and instill confidence.

Being an innovative brand, Ensembles started this contest in 2012, inviting everyone, amateurs and professionals alike. For the second year in a row, Ensembles was excited to receive a submission of almost 100 dress prototypes from all over the country. From these, the top 8 were chosen by voting and a judging panel.  All these winning spring dresses embody the Ensembles’ woman: feminine yet strong and independent. The dresses range from materials using laces, stretch woven, double knits and charmeuse, all made up of carefully picked fabric to accentuate the female figure. If you opt for simple yet classy, or you just want to amp up your corporate attire into a fashion-forward piece, the Spring Collection is sure to provide what you want and what you need.

These winning creations are now part of the Spring 2014 Collection of Ensembles and are available in stores this February. So, do you think you have what it takes to become a designer? Don’t box yourself and join the next Wear My Design contest this April! Who knows, it could be your creation that will be featured in our next spring collection!

CRUMPLER and PHILIPPINE AIRLINES Offer Exclusive Travel Deals at the TRAVELTOUR EXPO 2014

Mark your calendars! Crumpler will participate at the upcoming Traveltour Expo 2014 happening from February 14 to 16 at the SMX Convention Center, MOA Complex, Pasay City. The popular Traveltour Expo is the country's largest and most-anticipated travel show of the year. Now on its 21st year, it has established itself as a must-see event for customers looking for the best travel deals. Crumpler has partnered with Philippine Airlines (PAL) to offer exclusive privileges for the flag carrier’s customers at the expo. Any purchase of one (1) international ticket rewards a customer an automatic 30% discount on Crumpler bags, while any purchase of one (1) domestic ticket automatically wins them a 20% Crumpler discount.

In addition, Mabuhay Miles members can enjoy an additional 20% off discount on Crumpler items (on top of the aforementioned ticket purchase promo) by simply presenting their membership card or a copy of the promo email letter sent by PAL. 

This is an exciting partnership between two leading brands in travel. Australian brand Crumpler has established itself as a producer of quality bags since 1992. Evolving from its heritage as a bag for messengers, Crumpler now offers a variety of options, ranging from travel bags and luggage to professional photography bags, laptop bags, casual bags, and even school bags.

Meanwhile, flag carrier Philippine Airlines has been aggressively expanding its services, launching new non-stop flights to Australia, the Middle East, China, Malaysia, Japan and most recently, the United Kingdom in 2013.  Today, its route network spans 31 foreign cities and 29 domestic points.
