HAUPPAUGE, N.Y. and LAS VEGAS, Jan. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- LVCC, CENTRAL HALL, BOOTH 10404/10415 -- 808 Audio, a brand of VOXX International Corp.  (NASDAQ: VOXX), announced today the launch of its HEX line of portable wireless speakers. The HEX product line extends the critically acclaimed 808 Audio Brand into the portable wireless speaker category. 808 HEX wireless portable speakers take sound quality and portability to a new level with three models: the HEX SL, HEX TL and HEX XL. All three portable speakers in this impressive collection use Bluetooth technology to allow quick and easy wireless connection to smartphones, tablets, personal computers, and wireless media players.

"In designing the HEX line, we set out two essential criteria," explains David Geise, President of VOXX Accessories Corporation. "First, that sound quality is the key, no compromises. And second, that consumers should see the speakers at work. Too many products in this market hide their speakers, and we've noticed that consumers are starting to feel duped. 808 has nothing to hide: the HEX line offers power and performance you can see and hear yourself."

The 808 HEX SL Portable Bluetooth Speaker features a 360-degree sound design that produces clear and accurate audio with rich bass. The integrated rechargeable battery allows up to 12 hours of completely wireless listening, or plug in for endless music enjoyment. The 808 HEX SL provides high-quality wireless sound via Bluetooth up to 30 feet, and includes a 3.5mm audio line input. The 808 HEX SL will be available this April in black, white, red and blue, for a suggested retail price of $59.99.

The 808 HEX TL Portable Bluetooth Speaker gives users their own 2-way concert stack, with a 2-way acoustic design, delivering clear highs through a dedicated tweeter.  The 808 HEX TL offers a balanced response from a full-frequency driver and thumping bass from a rear bass resonator. The result is rich, detailed, room-filling audio for any musical style. The 808 HEX TL provides two power options: listen continuously using the included AC adapter, or use 8xAA alkaline batteries for up to 12 hours of listening on the go. The 808 HEX TL will be available this February in black, red and white, for a suggested retail price of $79.99.

The 808 HEX XL Portable Wireless Stereo Speaker, the flagship product of the line, boasts 2.1 stereo audio and bone-rattling performance in a surprisingly small size. The 808 HEX XL provides best-in-class, accurate, room-filling audio in a portable package at a price that is affordable for any audio aficionado. The speaker features true 2.1 audio with left and right stereo full-range drivers and down-firing subwoofer for high-impact bass. The detachable strap makes it easy to take the XL on the go.  The 808 HEX XL provides two power options: AC Adapter or internal rechargeable battery with 10 hours of play time. The XL provides wireless audio via Bluetooth up to 30 feet away. The 808 HEX XL will be available this April in black, red, and white for a suggested retail price of $99.99.
