London, UK, 21 July 2017 – Ninety7, a technology lifestyle company, today announced VAUX, the first battery-powered speaker designed specifically for the Amazon Echo Dot (second generation) is now shipping and is available at Amazon and Currys (coming soon to QVC and Argos) for £49.99. Consumers can now cut the cord “setting their Dot free,” allowing them mobility, as well as increased audio quality.
The product was created exclusively for the Dot and with its easy plug-and-play set-up, users simply pop their Dot into the top of the Vaux, plug in the internal connectors and, once charged, don’t have to worry about being near an electrical socket. Tunes can play through a more powerful speaker from anywhere in the house and Alexa can easily move from room to room. Vaux comes in two colors to match the Dot, Carbon and Ash, enabling consumers to “dress up” their Amazon product and have it seamlessly blend in with their home environment - turning a tech product into a beautiful home accessory.
A powerful speaker that enriches the audio quality of the Amazon Echo Dot. Whether listening to music or an audio book, or asking Alexa questions, VAUX enhances the sound quality and performance of the Dot. Additionally, users can connect their mobile devices or tablets via a 3.5mm jack and instantly use VAUX to upgrade their Dot to a portable sound system.
Portability. Users can now unleash the functionality of the Dot beyond the reach of the power cable – because, after all, we move around our homes. With a rechargeable battery, VAUX creates a companion home-command center as portable as your cell phone: order pizza from Dominos in the kitchen; grab the VAUX and listen to an audio book in the bath before heading to bed, setting the alarm and requesting your favorite music to help you sleep.
Style. As an integral part of the user’s home, VAUX was created with both aesthetics and utility in mind. Ninety7 believes that there should be no distinction between electronics and décor –VAUX complements its environment, visually and functionally.
VAUX is an easy and affordable way to make the Amazon Dot even more powerful and ubiquitous in the home. With its fast to set up and ease of use, the VAUX creates a sophisticated home -command center for less than £50. With an average of 6 hours of “cordless use,” VAUX creates the right environment for extended periods of productivity, relaxation, discovery and entertainment.
"Amazon’s Echo Dot is a phenomenal device. By improving its audio quality and facilitating mobility, VAUX elevates the Dot from gadget to indispensable home companion and allows for a different look than what is currently available in the Amazon family,” said Kevin Brennan, CEO at Ninety7. “VAUX improves communication with Alexa and, with enhanced portability, puts her within speaking distance, anywhere in the home. VAUX unleashes the potential of the Dot.”
