TheMomBuzz received a SOL REPUBLIC DECK for review. This is her opinion on the product received.

My husband and oldest son love music so much. Always playing it on any electronic tech they can get their hands on – which means their iPads and iPhones, of course. And they can either listen to the slight sound directly from the device or plug their earbuds in. But that also means we can’t all easily listen to the music at the same time.

I’ve been hearing a lot of buzz online about cordless speakers, but I am pretty much blown away by the SOL REPUBLIC Wireless Speaker we tried out in December. It’s called the DECK, newly released the Fall of 2013 and designed in collaboration with Motorola.


What makes the DECK stand out from the competition of tinny speakers is that it is MORE than just a wireless speaker – it is a social amplifier. Features include:

360 Degree Sound: You’ll find that you have improved sound with the DECK, not needing to stand right in front of it for the best sound. Instead you can get a full sound profile from a variety of locations.

Paired to 5 Devices at a Time: This is referred to as “Heist Mode”, which is supposed to bring a social element to the music as various people can play at being the DJ at one time. I think it’s fabulous for at-home with my husband and son, as well as at parties. People can share their favorite song or change the parties mood with a different sound. A backlit logo on the speaker changes colors as different users “heist” DECK.

Outdoor Mode: Take the Deck outdoors for camping, beach or a picnic. With a push of a button you can get a boost of music that travels further while still maintaining its crisp sound.

Range: It has a 300 foot range to connect to Bluetooth devices. That is 2x the range of most other wireless speaker brands.

Audio Jacks: DECK is wireless, but if your device doesn’t have Bluetooth, you can depend on DECK’s audio jacks.

Speaker Phone: Another innovative way of using the DECK is as a speaker phone, so you can speak hands-free with high quality sound!

On-the-Go: The DECK is also easy to take with you on-the-go. We rarely have the DECK at our house, because my husband takes it to work to play music at his office. He just throws it in his briefcase and goes. It lives up to its 10-hour charge before needing to recharge the battery. It only weighs about 1.3 pounds, soit’s light enough to carry. Measurements are 4.9″ x 9.6″ x 3.2″.

The DECK has the sound and the features to blow away other wireless speakers. It is a high-rated wireless speaker, receiving 4.9+ out of 5 stars on over 150 reviews. And we completely agree! It will not disappoint.

The DECK is available in 4 awesome colors: Gunmetal(Black), Lemon Lime (Neon Green), Vivid Red, and Electro Blue. It retails for $199.99. You can purchase it, along with other wireless products, at
