Soundcast Speakers Launch in Best Buy and Leslie’s Pool Supplies
On Thursday, audio manufacturer Soundcast announced its first-ever in-store retail partnerships. Soundcast, makers of the VGX series speakers (one of which we recently reviewed for UNBOXED) has teamed up with Best Buy and Leslie’s Pool Supplies to get their products in store and in front of customers.
The Soundcast VG7 is now available for purchase in every Best Buy Magnolia Home Design Center and Home Theater Showrooms. It will also be available in the near future through the Magnolia website. The VG1 is available now in 150 flagship Leslie’s locations, and both the VG1 and VG7 are available through the Leslie’s website.
The VG1, which we reviewed, is a mid-tier option for consumers looking for a portable, durable Bluetooth speaker. With it’s IP67 rating, the VG1 is both water and dust proof, and it can take a heck of beating and still sound great. Soundcast built the VG1 with dual aluminum drivers that are situated in the front and rear of the device, which produces “immersive 360-degree sound.” It’s an awesome listening experience, and one that you wouldn’t expect out of a package as small as this one. Music comes through exceptionally clear at all volumes with very little distortion at the higher ends. Bass performance was alright, and the ability to evenly fill up a room with sound was on point.
