Multi-Purpose Smartphone Speakers

The Monocle Speaker is a 3-in-1 Device for Your Needs

— October 31, 2013 — Tech
For those looking for a device that is portable and packed with features for your smartphone, take a look at the Monocle speaker. This 3-in-1 speaker provides high quality audio and universal smartphone compatibility with all your devices.

Dangle the device on your neck or bag to answer calls hands-free to use it as a speakerphone or headset. If you have friends with Monocles, they can be chained together to provide more sound; you can simply have one unit playing music from your smartphone -- which is then linked to a series of other Monocle units.

This handheld pocket-sized device is available online for $60 and is a go-to for those on the go.
