#STAYLOUD WITH AIR RAID

Air Raid has officially dropped! Get stoked, people.  Bluetooth ready and loud as hell, Air Raid is the durable, go-anywhere speaker that doesn’t force you to make sacrifices in sound quality. Built like a tank, Air Raid was created as an unwavering companion for the adventurous soul. Scratches are worn as badges of pride and mud stains add character.

Air Raid wirelessly connects to any Bluetooth enabled device at a distance of up to 33 feet without interference. That’s a little longer than a first down in case you’re wondering. Air Raid will also connect up to 2 Bluetooth enabled devices simultaneously. Or, if you prefer to keep it old school, there is a wired option as well (with Bluetooth as the default).

With the intention of making Air Raid the toughest speaker out there, now termed “drop proof,” we naturally looked to the military for inspiration. We drew inspiration from ammo cases and vintage field radios, specifically, as well as rugged mobile cases; our Industrial Design team weighs in.

“We wanted this thing to be able to fall off the back of a tank, and into the mud while still rocking that Sweet Home Alabama. It’s basically tough as shit,” says one of our Industrial Designers, Donnie Stiff.

Think of Air Raid as the gnarliest snowboarder you know, Sam Noertker, one of our Acoustical Engineers tells us, “As the competition stands atop a chute, afraid to drop in for fear of scratching their “brand new snowboard,” Air Raid is the bomber who boosts the cornice.  Up for first tracks in the morning with no time for lunch, Air Raid is more than just for show. The ‘ride hard’ attitude of Air Raid instills an emotional sense of pride (that makes you) aspire to be stronger and push harder.  Ultimately, Air Raid encompasses the aggressive culture of those who don’t tread lightly.”

Eager to push the limits even further, we went the extra mile and made Air Raid water resistant, too. We designed it to resist heavy rain and light splashes alike. Party proof, Air Raid is your up-all-night, beer friendly speaker…welcoming party fouls. Extra bonus? The removable boot allows you to wipe away any unwanted liquid splashes.

Did we mention Air Raid is LOUD?  At 88 dB, it's loud as hell, actually. With two-2 inch speakers and an amplifier with two-5 watt outputs, Air Raid packs a serious punch.  Loud wasn’t enough, though.  The speakers are tuned just right, so they sound clear without any harsh highs. The high frequencies are smooth and well-balanced compared to the bass and vocals.  All done in-house, the tuning profile is totally unique to Air Raid.  Never harsh and always loud, Air Raid provides a quality audio experience by being both clear and loud, at the same time.  Added perk? Position Air Raid with speakers facing up to experience 360-degree immersive sound. Air Raid takes 360-degree sound to a whole new loud.

Ok it's loud. We hammered that one home, right? But just how loud is 88db, anyways? Somewhere between your typical alarm clock and a motorcycle, technically speaking.

The list of features goes on. If you're dying to know more, head here for the full scoop. Just want to snag one for yourself? This way.

In celebration of the launch, and to put the Air Raid to the ultimate test, we threw an insane party in LA.  We invited some of our favorite pretty faces – Malto, Hale, Maddo, and the McClungs – to help us figure out exactly what Air Raid is made of. As it turns out, exactly what we said it was… Check out some of our favorite snaps from the event below.
