Porsche Design unveils the PDS20, their inaugural outdoor speaker, fusing sleek design with cutting-edge tech. I know right? All these years of turning up super cool speakers, we have forgotten it never had outdoor speakers which kind of made this worthy of a mention.
Crafted from anodized aluminum and gray acoustic fabric, this cylindrical speaker – which isn’t a tailpipe or any part of a Porsche, by the way – boasts a minimalist look and includes a silicone carrying strap for protection.
Equipped with two passive radiators and a 1.75″ woofer, it delivers exceptional sound quality, especially in bass. Its IP67 rating ensures durability against dust and water, ideal for outdoor use like hiking or enhancing open spaces with premium sound.
With a 10-hour battery life and quick USB-C charging, the PDS20 promises all-day uninterrupted listening. Its integrated microphone allows seamless interaction with voice assistants for playlist control, call management, and messaging.
For an immersive stereo experience, it easily pairs with a second speaker via Bluetooth, perfect for larger gatherings or enhancing home entertainment.
In essence, the PDS20 epitomizes Porsche Design’s blend of style, durability, and high-quality sound, tailored for versatile usage both indoors and outdoors. IMHO, this is long overdue. Now, you can finally hit the trail with your trusty Porsche eBike while enjoying your favorite tunes delivered by a Porsche portable speaker.
The new Porsche Design Outdoor Speaker PDS20 is available starting November 15, 2023, at 8 AM, for $245 through Porsche Design stores, specialty outlets, Porsche-design.com, and select online retailers.
