Fender is traditionally known for its guitars; however, in 2017, they revealed the first “Monterey” and “Newport” Bluetooth speaker models. The designs were inspired by the ’60s Newport and Monterey Pop festivals. Today Fender returns with a look at the Newport 2 portable Bluetooth speaker. The Newport’s design inspired Fender’s iconic “Silverface” guitar amplifiers.
The device features a brushed metal grille, toggle switches, sapphire jewel indicators, and numbered analog volume EQ knobs that control the treble, mid, and bass. The Newport 2 is updated for better sound quality while retaining the model’s classic shape. This time they arrive in a slew of new colorways, including “Titanium Gray/Black,” “Titanium Gray/Dakota Red” and “Champagne Gold/Black.”
New tuning and sound quality include Bluetooth 5.0, Duo Mode stereo, Party Mode, and a new fast-charging function that provides one hour of battery life with 10 minutes of charge time. The Fender Newport 2 Bluetooth speakers are now available at select retailers in Asia, while a stateside release will be announced soon.
Head over to Fender to find out more and pick yours up asap. In the meantime, keep it locked with The Culture Curators for more from the tech sector.
