At CES, the company will be showing off a very slim Bluetooth speaker -- or mini sound bar, as the company describes it -- the FoxL Dash 7.
It comes in three different colors, lists for $249, and should be available late in January. If you preorder it, Soundmatters is offering a $30 discount, bringing the price down to $219. That's still a bit steep, but if past products are any indication, the FoxL Dash 7 should sound very good for its size.
According to Soundmatters, the speaker will be very portable at a mere 7.1 ounces and only .75 inch tall, so it can be put under a tablet. The Dash 7 can be "aimed up for omnidirectional sound or direct-aimed using the included stand/travel case" and has an output so it can be used with the FoxLo subwoofer (optional). Its built-in noise-canceling microphone supports a speakerphone function. Other key specs are a "proprietary dual passive radiator system" with extended-range wireless stereo Bluetooth and and Aux-in, and a "Bass-Battery [that] provides extended bass for up to 12 hours."
I'll add better photos and offer up my impressions once I get some ears-on time with the Dash 7 in Las Vegas next week.
