Next Generation Podspeakers attracts massive attention at IFA
World-famous Danish Podspeakers presenting "Next Generation Podspeakers" is a huge attraction at EET Europarts´ stand this year.
The original MiniPod is one of the world’s most recognised loudspeakers, a true design icon, and the model that started it all for Podspeakers. Since its launch in the mid 1990s, the MiniPod has set a benchmark for what can be achieved when moving away from conventional box designs.

Next Generation Podspeakers
Play Music Wirelessly - Hi-Fi sound - Stereo Pairing - Colours and Kevlar
Launch of the new and completely modified versions of the MiniPod, together with BigPod and The Drop, was set at IFA 2016, and the interest among audience to see the new speakers has been immense.
One of the most obvious design changes made is the replacement of the yellow Kevlar colour - a signature from the very first beginning when the MiniPod was introduced by Bowers & Wilkins - to a new and modern looking dark grey Kevlar colour. Another design change is the trim rings, also called the Hoops framing the Kevlar: The Hoops, and also the well-known Spikes, can now be replaced with Hoops and/or Spikes in wooden material, available in two different genuine wood species, and in four different metal colours in solid aluminium. The Hoops are attached via magnets and are therefore easy to replace. With these new features, customers can give their Podspeakers a unique DIY look.
Besides a profound upgrade of the acoustic image for MiniPod, BigPod and The Drop, another important feature upgrade is the possibility of stereo pairing using two Stand-Alone Bluetooth speakers for a True Wireless FULL ACTIVE solution.
Global Brand Manager, Lise Vestergaard says: "For the launch of "Next Generation Podspeakers" at IFA, we did have high expectations. And we have not yet been disappointed. Dealers and consumers have welcomed the high quality of sound, the new features and design look with much enthusiasm and excitement. Podspeakers will for sure deliver great sound and cool design for all their fans, appreciating listening to music with both their eyes and ears - also in the future."
"Next Generation Podspeakers" is a comprehensive upgrade of the famous and iconic speakers, loved by hi-fi entusiasts all over the world.
The company behind the Podspeakers brand today is EET Group. Group CEO John Thomas, says: We will continue to breathe new life into the Podspeakers range, and ensure that the speakers match the needs of the modern generation. We are proud to bring this famous 20+ year old Danish loudspeaker brand to new heights."
