Past meets present in Native Union x La Boite’s new PR/01 speaker.
Posted on September 05 2018
Native Union was created out of a passion for tasteful designs and great quality products. Founders, John Brunner and Igor Duc created the company as they hated how the mobile accessory market was overrun by cheap plastic materials. So, they set out to offer well-crafted, beautiful alternatives for those who love quality. And through using the finest materials and practical designs, Native Union have succeeded in creating durable, aesthetically pleasing products to give us years of satisfaction.
It’s very rare to find a speaker that both looks and sounds great, but, Native Union and boutique audio specialists La Boite have come together to create the PR/01. A revolutionary new speaker that combines the highest standard of technology with a subtle and ergonomic aesthetic to bring us the ultimate home speaker.
The PR/01 maintains classic minimalist style with a beautiful wooden frame and stylish brass accents whilst being packed full of cutting edge electronics such as Bluetooth AptX, which allows you to connect faster than ever and ‘Active Pression Reflex technology’ consists of two speakers inside a multi-amplified pneumatic system. This exclusive design allows PR/01 to produce unmatched sound fidelity, even low-frequency sounds which makes any genre of music sound, from hip hop to rock, sound brilliant.
The speaker also has a concealed drawer full of useful features. Inside, there are multiple audio inputs allowing you to configure the speaker according to your own preferences and USB ports (2 USB-A and a USB-C) which allow for charging and other connections. Native Union, thinking about the future, also have integrated their drop wireless charger (sold separately) that you can easily place inside in its dedicated space allowing you to charge you phone by simply placing it on top of the speaker. The drop charger works with any Qi-compatible device.
Due to its understated design, the PR/01 could match any style of room whether it be inside a modern kitchen or homely lounge due to its mesmerising blend of past and present.
The PR/01 by Native Union x La Boite is now available at WOAW here.
