Outside at CES in Las Vegas we had a chilly conversation with Lisa Mathis, Head of Marketing, North America for . Representing themselves as the best "speaker brand you haven’t heard of yet”, Lisa explained their origins at a music festival and how they are now coming to the U.S. Unlike some larger concert speakers ( 126 dB maximum output), these are Bluetooth and can be connected together wirelessly, and run off swappable batteries, so placement and movement is simplified. The grills can also be customized for you, your company, or your brand. Crank it up!  Show Notes:...
