AC-S113BT
Arctic S113BT NFC & Bluetooth 4.0 Wireless Stereo Speaker

Arctic S113BT is a portable wireless speaker system featuring a rare combination of one-touch pairing through Near Field Communication (NFC) and extended transmitting range through Bluetooth 4.0. Arctic S113BT plays CD quality stereo audio streamed wirelessly from all major NFC and Bluetooth-enabled smart phones, tablets, MP3, e-readers and computers running Mac OS/iOS, Android, and Windows operating systems.



AC-S113BT-NFC Best Features of Both NFC & Bluetooth Worlds!

NFC cuts the pairing process to just a fraction of a second and is as easy as placing your NFC-enabled mobile device on top of the Arctic S113BT for the initial pairing. The integrated advanced Near Field Communication components in both devices will get to work and pair with each other in less than a second. No more holding down the button and waiting for discovery mode to kick in. Powerful Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity streaming true CD quality stereo sound is far superior than those tiny speakers in your mobile device. What's more, Arctic S113BT works up to 30 feet away!

AAC & AptX Audio Support

Arctic S113BT supports the same high quality Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) - the digital audio format that is now a standard on YouTube, iPhone, iPod, iPad, Nintendo & PlayStation 3 and delivers better sound quality than MP3 at similar bit rates. Arctic S113BT is also compatible with aptX digital audio codec compression technology that brings you high quality audio virtually identical as wired speakers with an impressive dynamic range and crisp clarity. Not all the Bluetooth speakers support AAC & aptX.

AC-S113BT-colors Bluetooth Wireless Stereo Audio Streaming

Arctic S113BT supports Bluetooth Advanced Audio Distribution Profile for true wireless stereo audio streaming as well as Audio Video Remote Control Profile for control such as track skipping.

Crisp & Powerful Sound with Generous Playback Time

Arctic S113BT is powered by a solid-state amplifier with dual full-range drivers & two passive bass radiators delivering excellent sound and volume performances indoors and out. Built-in rechargeable battery provides up to eight long hours of playback in a single charge.

Easy Connectivity

Other than supporting the advanced NFC and Bluetooth 4.0 technologies, Arctic S113BT also comes with the standard 3.5mm TRRS audio cable so devices without NFC and/or Bluetooth capability can also take advantage of the portable high quality sound delivered by Arctic S113BT.

Outdoor Durability & Portability

Arctic S113BT has a rubberized protective casing that is both moist and dust-resistant. It is built to withstand outdoor use poolside or at the beach. The soft padded nylon carrying pouch keeps Arctic S113BT safe and dry so you can enjoy it just about everywhere you take it. With a petite footprint of only 7" x 3" x 2" and weighing only 14 oz, Arctic S113BT takes up little space and is easy to carry around.

Hands-Free Speaker Box

The integrated omni-directional microphone turns Arctic S113BT into your portable speaker box in the car or in conference room when using with your smart phone for hands-free phone calls. The sound quality is far superior to the smart phone speakers so you can put your attention on more important things like driving, making a presentation, or just enjoying a conversation.

Wide-Range OS & Device Compatibility

Arctic S113BT supports NFC and/or Bluetooth-enabled mobile devices such as smart phones, tablets, e-readers, MP3 and even computers running various operating systems, such as Mac/iOS, Android and Windows.

Multiple Color Selections & Long Warranty

Arctic 113BT has six different vivid colors to choose from (Black, White, Blue, Pink, Orange and Lime) for different lifestyles. Arctic S113BT comes with a generous 2-year limited warranty. Please contact Arctic.us@Arctic.ac for services.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Bang for the Buck

Pros: This little guy has enough power and sound quality for cooking in the kitchen, soaking in the tub, or hanging out in the yard. Travels fine, it's been to the beach, camping, and the park. Wife and daughter take it to wherever they want to hold their impromptu dance sessions. It has proven to be our go-to audio device for the summer. It has proven durable as it has survived falls onto hardwood, and tile from 4ft. Battery life is solid, and the bluetooth range is fairly impressive. Enjoyed the bass on such a little thing.

Cons: Not the shiniest, not the flashiest, but gets the job done.

Other Thoughts: Well worth the price of admission, it is now an indispensable device in my home and on family trips.

5 out of 5 eggsReally Nice Wireless Speaker

Pros: Good sound. Build quality appears good. Favorable price compared to equivalent products from traditional audio equipment vendors.

Cons: Automatically goes into unauthenticated discovery mode when powered on. Doesn't bother me, but might annoy a security purist.

Other Thoughts: Yes, this is the same "Arctic" that we all know for CPU and case cooling. Interesting.

Also functions as a wired USB speaker.

Does not included a wall charger. and povided Microusb cable is pretty short. However, I assume the type of customer who knows this name and orders from them has a shelf full of these items somewhere, so I do not list either as a disadvantage.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Bluetooth Speaker (Arctic S113BT) for the price

Pros: Sounds good enough, pairs easily, and battery life is outstanding. The 3.5mm audio jack comes in handy for those times when your audio source doesn't support bluetooth. I currently have it hooked up via 3.5mm audio cable to a raspberry pi running xbmc (OpenELEC). Finally, I know this is minor and rather silly, but I like the rubberized texture of the case. As far as the color goes, I took advice from Henry Ford and chose the best (and only) choice - black.

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: I would sacrifice a couple hours of battery life for a bit more amplification. Also, a bass/treble dial or slider would be nice.

4 out of 5 eggsVery decent sound - with robust Bluetooth ver4.0

Pros: Arctic enters in much reasonable price than the more popular Jawbone with similar features and convenience plus it brings in Bluetooth 4.0 for an incredible BT power efficiency.

Cons: The Arctic S113BT sounds unnatural when playing at louder volume.

Other Thoughts: Great sound from a tiny brick speaker. As long as I don't crank it up too loud, this speaker produce rich and pleasing music in my bedroom and bathroom. A number of speakers in the market have similar configuration, including the much more popular 130-150$ Jawbone. It has rugged rubber casing and metal grill protecting the speakers. The S113BT competes at a more affordable price.

It has a handsome zippered case with pockets for the the included microUSB cable and a 3.5 mm audio cable to attach to the auxiliary input.

Quick Specs:
- Bluetooth 4.0 (this what makes it possible for the manufacturer to claim 700 hrs in standby mode)
- Frequency response - 30 Hz to 20 KHz
- total of 6W output from (2) 1.5" speakers
- 4 ohms
- 1200 mAh battery
- 8 hrs playback time

Controls:
Pairing - press the middle button for 8 seconds until LED lights flashes red and blue
Pause and Play - short press of the middle button
Volume - one short press of either button "-" and "+"
Music advance - long press of either button "-" and "+"
Answer and End call - short press of the middle button
Ignore call - long press of the middle button

Jawbone no doubt is a great speaker and is superior in audio quality. The Arctic S113BT sounds unnatural when playing at louder volume. Arctic then enters in much reasonable price with similar features and convenience plus it brings in Bluetooth 4.0 for an incredible BT power efficiency.

A sample of this product was sent to me for review purposes.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Addition to My Computer and to My Smartphone

Pros: Very good sound quality--including bass. I have a 24" monitor w/ built-in speakers, so they are fairly good sized, but the Arctic runs the proverbial circles around my monitor speakers. Voices and music sound natural--not tinny.

Also a great price for this quality.

Cons: The range is less than 30 ft, (more like 20 for me), but that may be the location of my computer. No big deal for me.

Other Thoughts: Very easy to set up as per directions: Just be sure to wait for the blue AND red flashing lights before scanning by and connecting to your device.

I connected the Arctic to my smartphone to use as an external speakerphone. Works great. At our cabin I have a stationary cradle for the smartphone in order to enhance the signal, so the phone is not very mobile. Using this speaker as a speakerphone alleviates this difficulty. In effect, it put legs my phone.
