Go Pack

Although it’s labeled as a wireless speaker, you still have to plug it into an outlet – thus making it not 100% “wireless” if you were to be specific. If you want a true wireless experience that doesn’t require an outlet, you may want to consider investing in the HEOS 1 Go Pack. It’s an additional accessory that acts as a battery back and charging accessory for your smartphone. It’s an additional $99 but it includes a lithium ion battery that lasts 6 hours on a single charge. The speaker twists on and off for easy installation and gives users the ability to take the speaker wherever they go. It’s a decent upgrade and makes the entire wireless audio experience a true treat.
