Durable Party Speakers

Skullcandy x Budweiser's Air Raid is a Compact Party Speaker

— October 8, 2014 — Tech
The Air Raid is a limited edition party speaker that was created in a collaboration between Skullcandy and Budweiser, bringing together two must essentials for a big get-together: music and beer. The speaker may feature a retro-inspired design in red, white and blue, but it's loaded with a ton of modern features to keep the party going. The Bluetooth Air Raid speaker has an impressive 14-hour battery life, and three LED indicator lights to show how long before the device needs a charge. The speaker is also equipped with an A/C adaptor and is drop-proof, water-resistant and loud—it might just be your most rowdy party guest.

Only 1,000 speakers are being produced as part of the Skullcandy x Budweiser collaboration, available from just a handful of retailers as of October 7th.
