Are You Craving More Wireless Music?
It's hard to find an audio company that isn't producing wireless speakers these days. Even companies traditionally known for video products are branching out into the world of wireless speakers. There are now more choices of wireless speakers than there are flavors of Baskin-Robbins ice cream (trust me, I counted). So if you're going to make something for that category, your product had better stand out.
VIZIO is doing that with the Crave 360, a new wireless speaker. The product is part of the company's SmartCast speaker lineup, which is designed to wirelessly put music into every room in the house.
Competitively priced at $249.99, the Crave 360 has a lot of the features you'd expect from a wireless speaker, including a few extras. Made for use in, around, and even outside of the house, it comes with a wireless charging base that will provide up to 8 hours of portable playtime on a full charge. It includes both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support, as well as the option to use Google Cast. This is a nice perk, since it allows you to fling all sorts of audio from your favorite Google Cast-enabled apps and devices.
