Libratone ONE Click and TOO Portable Wireless Speakers

 Building upon its revamped speaker lineup, Libratone has unveiled its latest pair that combine fashionable Danish design aesthetic with 360-degrees of the company's signature sound. Compared to the (recently-reviewed) Libratone Zipp and Zipp Mini, the ONE Click and TOO portable Bluetooth wireless speakers offer users a versatile option for everyday listening almost anywhere.

Despite the incredible audio performance and powerful features, the Libratone Zipp and Zipp Mini aren't really what one would consider portable. Sure, the built-in handles make it easy to move either of them from room to room. But the larger size, greater weight, and lack of USB charging prevent the Zipp and Zipp Mini from being conveniently tossed into bags or backpacks for mobile audio.

Meet the Libratone ONE Click and TOO Bluetooth Wireless Speakers

Libratone's ONE Click is conveniently sized like the average paperback novel.

 The Libratone ONE Click speaker hits the sweet spot for those interested in substance without excess or sacrifice. Sized similarly to the average paperback novel, the ONE Click takes up just the right about of carrying space. Measuring only 8 x 4.7 x 1.6 in (20 x 12 x 4 cm) at 2 lb (0.9 kg), this speaker manages to pack in one 3-inch woofer, a 1-inch tweeter, and two passive low-frequency enhancers for extra punch with 360 degrees of sound.

Slightly lighter at 1.3 lb (0.59 kg), the Libratone TOO speaker offers a uniquely different shape that allows it to slide into the water bottle pocket on most backpacks. It also takes up a bit less volume, with its 8.3 x 2.6 x 2.3 in (21 x 6.6 x 5.8 cm) frame that puts it in a similar style category of portable speakers like the Bose Soundlink Mini II, Riva S, or Fugoo Style. As such, the Libratone TOO packs only a pair of 1.5-inch full-range drivers and a single passive low-frequency enhancer, yet it's still able to deliver rich audio no matter which way the orientation.

Why the Libratone ONE Click and TOO Might Be for You

Both the ONE Click and TOO are designed for indoor/outdoor portability.

The Libratone ONE Click and TOO wireless speakers feature IPX4 certified water resistance and Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity. Users can bring either along to rivers, beaches, or pools without worrying about mud, dirt, or accidental spills. Those familiar with Libratone's other speakers may recognize the multi-function touch interface with iconic nightingale logo embedded underneath. Backlit with LEDs, this one button offers volume adjustment, track control, and battery level feedback.

While the TOO speaker comes with a built-in loop for toting around or hanging, it's the ONE Click that gets interesting with its design choice and included accessories. The Libratone ONE Click comes with a rubberized metal bumper that can be adapted to a few different ways of carrying. Removable coverings expose grommets that accommodate a short handle or U-shaped lock. There's also an optional shoulder strap.

Both the Libratone ONE Click and TOO speakers are designed to play for up to 12 hours before needing to recharge via micro USB cable. This type of power connection lets either speaker skip the wall socket by charging up from any external battery pack. A 3.5 mm auxiliary port allows a cabled option for non-wireless devices.

If one speaker is great, then two can be even better. The ONE Click and TOO speakers are compatible with Libratone's mobile app, available for iOS and Android. The app allows users to pair multiple speakers together or with a Zipp or Zipp Mini, whether for wider music coverage or private listening in separate rooms.

"ONE Click adds a new level of freedom and flexibility to your music," said Libratone President Mike Culver. "Great music sets the stage for life’s memorable moments, no matter where you go, no matter what you are doing. We designed ONE Click to adapt to any location or scenario, for the person whose life is in motion."

The Libratone ONE Click portable Bluetooth speaker is available now for US$199 in choice of Cloudy Grey, Graphite Gray, and Carribean Green colorways. The Libratone TOO will be available soon for a retail price of $149.
