~ Disclosure: Mom Central received two complimentary Korus Wireless Speakers to facilitate this review. The opinions expressed in this review are entirely our own.
In the not-too-distant past, in order to hear the latest hit song or listen to everyone’s favorite radio station, families devoted one wall of the living room to bulky entertainment systems filled with stereos, receivers, and refrigerator-sized speakers with no hope of ever budging. If our kids wanted to hear music in a different room of the house, they could only beg us to “crank it up!”
Then, faster than you can say “MP3 Player,” the music movement turned portable, with legions of listeners of all ages in their own Private Idaho – rocking to their favorite songs, radio stations, and podcasts via ear buds.
The problem? Sound – whether in the form of the latest summer rock anthem or an engaging storytelling podcast – becomes more even more enjoyable when shared with our family and community. But in homes like mine – a contemporary style with the kitchen in one end of the house, a second-floor family room, a two-level patio, and an extended back garden – how do you ensure that sound moves seamlessly throughout?
Moreover, most multi-speaker systems prove expensive and difficult to set up, so often we settle for compact wireless speakers in one room of the house. These tiny speakers prove only a little better than headphones, where we can listen to the music we want, but can only enjoy it on our own.
That’s why I loved learning about Korus Premium Wireless Speakers that completely elevate the music-listening experience and provide an easy-to-use speaker system that finally allows us to share the music we enjoy with the people we love.
The Korus speaker system uses SKAA technology, overcoming the obstacles that other systems face in producing great sound. Yet, while the technology proves advanced, the set up feels simple. When you take the speaker out of the box, simply plug it into any outlet and take the Korus adapter and place it in an iPhone, iPad, or either a PC or Mac computer.
In addition, when you invest in more than one Korus speaker, the wireless connection between the Korus adapters and the Korus speakers can physically move the music from one room to the next – with an overall range of up to 65 feet. With the help of Korus’s free mobile app, you can control the volume of the speakers and choose which one you’ll use. Just by pressing a button on your phone, you choose the speaker in the family room, the bedroom, the kitchen, the garage, or the basement, putting music in the places you want it most.
Even better, these speakers play more than music and allow you to watch everything from movies to those viral YouTube videos – in addition to the classic songs the whole family enjoys.
But one challenge exists for families looking to upgrade their in-home sound system – the price. At nearly $350 per speaker, the Korus system becomes an investment, rather than an impulse purchase. However, when faced with the choice of less-expensive speakers, the premium wireless experience of the Korus system offers a considerable advantage – from ease of set up to range and quality of sound.
The Korus system puts mobility to the tunes we adore, and its versatility makes music in the home – and beyond – something we can share.
When the weekend seems full of endless chores – from organizing to cleaning to tackling laundry – sometimes it takes just one song to change the entire vibe. Dishes become less of a chore, and kids can dance to the pop hits they love while cleaning their rooms. And, with this system’s extensive sound range, we can become the cool parent who has the great speakers to bring to the neighborhood block party or the back-to-school barbecue.
Both the V400 and V600 Korus speaker models come in a bundle with three different adapters and two power cords, starting at $349.99. Visit Korus’s website to learn more. This system makes a perfect gift for Father’s Day or for any celebrating graduate who wants to fill summer with the sounds we all love.
