Sustainability will also be a key hallmark of all AOC Sound products. The first three speakers include 70% recycled plastics and are all particularly robust with an easy clean metal mesh to guarantee long-life performance and ownership. SPEAKER O1 and SPEAKER O2 are IPX67 water and dust proof for extra durability – IPX4 splash-proof for the SPEAKER O3 – and all three products are supplied in eco-friendly packaging using single colour soy-based ink.
The new speakers will also play a starring role as part of AOC’s global partnership with the ‘Red Bull Dance Your Style’ and ‘Red Bull BC One’ competitions, with each having prominent exposure at the events and in-event activations around the world.
AOC SPEAKER O1 – The Power of Small
SPEAKER O1 is the smallest speaker in the new range – measuring 71 x 182 x 71mm (hxwxd) and weighing just 670g – but while the O1 is compact, it still offers the same ultra-wide stereo sound of the larger speakers in the range.
The design includes a hexagonal shaped enclosure to reduce sound reflections from parallel surfaces. Three drivers are used to deliver an exceptionally wide but accurate and detailed stereo image, made possible by mounting the 25mm soft dome tweeter on the top front face of the speaker and two full range 51mm custom drivers left & right at either end of the enclosure.
An active crossover and powerful 90W three-channel amplifier deliver a single channel to the tweeter and a L&R stereo feed to the two full range drivers.
The twin full range drivers guarantee a deep bass delivery while the closed box design ensures bass is always fast and detailed. Spatial audio extends well beyond the confines of the enclosure to give the sonic impression of an overall much bigger product.
SEPAKER O1 can easily pair with any of the AOC other speaker models while a PartyLink feature lives up to its name by allowing up to 100 speakers to be linked together. And for even more realistic stereo sound two SPEAKER O1’s can be paired together.
Bluetooth multipoint allows the simultaneous connection of up to two users who can each select play, switch or share while Bluetooth version 5.3 promises a faster & more stable pairing and a longer battery life of up to 12 hours.
AOC SPEAKER O2 – Portable and Powerful
The SPEAKER O2 is the larger portable wireless speaker measuring 131 x 290 x 131mm (hxwxd) and weighs 2.2kg.
SPEAKER O2 uses the same hexagonal design to minimise internal parallel surfaces but in a bass reflex configuration. The larger body has allowed the fitting of a tweeter on the front face of the speaker plus two 83 mm full range L&R custom drivers at either end of the enclosure and two passive radiators on the top and lower sides.
A powerful 130W three-channel amplifier and active crossover directs the power by supplying a single channel to the tweeter and a stereo L&R feed to the twin full range drivers. Dynamic EQ with adaptive bass boost ensures the bass performance is always optimised to all genres of music and all environments.
The speaker’s configuration again allows for an extra wide and detailed stereo plus very deep detailed bass performance with the spatial sound effect extending well beyond the enclosure to give the impression of a much bigger product. For an even more realistic stereo effect two O2’s can be paired together.
Highly efficient Bluetooth 5.3 connectivity ensures an excellent battery life of an impressive 24 hours, while the O2 can also be used as a power bank to charge other mobile devices via the integrated USB-C port.
Bluetooth multipoint and PartyLink guarantee that the great sound quality can easily be shared.
AOC SPEAKER O3 – Compact Party Powerhouse
SPEAKER O3 has all the presence and power to get any party started – as a single unit, as a stereo pair or even as one of 100 AOC speakers joined via the PartyLink feature.
Measuring in at 311 x 330 x 330mm (hxwxd) and weighing 7.5kgs, the O3 can be powered from the mains or alternatively for 12 hours via the built-in battery and can easily be carried from room-to-room, taken to the beach or handily placed at the centre of the BBQ.
The O3’s hexagonal body has the space for two front firing 2” (50mm) tweeters, a dedicated 6.5” (163mm) woofer and two large passive bass radiators.
A 160W amplifier ensures huge sound that always remains clear and controlled and with a mighty bass performance, while an integrated LED multi-coloured light flashes to the rhythm of the music to enhance the party feel.
Bluetooth version 5.3 ensures a fast, robust and efficient connection for to up to two users simultaneously.
Alternatively, there are two mic inputs plus an echo and fader effect and switching for male/female voices all to guarantee the SPEAKER O3 can deliver the perfect karaoke experience.
SPEAKER O3 also offers complete party convenience, working as a power bank for mobile devices via a wireless QI-charging panel on top of the product, plus there are three handy integrated can holders while the speaker also has IPX4 splashproof status – just in case!
