Soundmatters Dash7 proves 'thin is in' when it comes to Bluetooth speakers

See also

Amazing sound, from a Bluetooth speaker that is super-thin and takes up next-to-no room.

I test about 75 Bluetooth speakers a year. I see big ones, small one, and colorful ones. But the Soundmatters Dash7 is quite possible the thinnest and one of the best sounding.

Great for listening to those summer tunes or perfect for the kid heading away to college, the Dash7 checks in at about ¾” tall and at a great price point of $199.

Sound bars have come the speakers of choice for home theaters, now you can add the same technology to your tablet, smartphone or laptop.

Soundmatters, known for its portable speakers, and founded by former NASA engineer and audio visionary Dr. Godehard Guenther announced the Dash7 will now be priced under $200.

In short, you should get one.

Clean and clear sound will surround you as you try to get through your work day or clean your house. The Dash7 easily keeps up with more expensive speakers, in my tests.

You have a choice of colors when it comes to the Dash7. Cast your eyes on the hot red, arctic white, platinum silver and midnight black colors. The Dash7 was named “The One Bluetooth Speaker to Buy” by Men’s Journal and also one of the “Best New Travel Gadgets for 2014” by Travel + Leisure.
