Pl8ty is a Bluetooth speaker where the smartphone can be inserted like a cassette.
The speaker offers clear and loud 85db sound, 2.1 stereo, a 3200mAh battery that can also be used as a power bank and Bluetooth 5.0.
It plays music in the frequency range 80Hz – 20kHz and offers USB-C, a 3.5mm headphone jack and microphone output.
With the help of real, haptic buttons all important functions can be operated (start/stop, louder, quieter, etc.), just like on an “original” walkman.
