G-Project has made some fantastic products for even better price tags (and our reviews really show that), but their latest duo of speakers is made for the budget crowd. They have announced both the G-ZIP and the G-POP, two tiny speakers ideal for traveling and portability. The G-ZIP retails for only $20 and has a retractable 3.5mm cable. The G-POP is the same speaker, but includes Bluetooth connectivity. Both have a three watt speaker and a battery that will last 8 hours of music playback. They also have a flip out metal loop for clipping to bags and belts.
Along with the speakers, G-Project has given their site some new features, like buying the speakers straight from there! You can also find apparel, like hats and shirts there too. And if you fancy physical locations, you can get the speakers from Target and their new partner, Walmart. They made a video to show off the G-ZIP which you can watch here:
LOS ANGELES, May 16, 2013 – G-PROJECT, a company dedicated to evolving speakers and accessories for smart devices to be rugged and real-world ready, is expanding its product line with the addition of G-ZIP, a $20 travel sized wired speaker. G-ZIP is available for purchase at Walmart and on the newly re-designed G-Project website (www.gprojectgear.com). G-Project’s G-BOOM, a $100 Bluetooth boombox and G-GO, a $69 water-resistant Bluetooth speaker, are also available at Walmart starting today.
G-ZIP is loud enough to turn any listening experience into an instant party, yet small enough to fit in one hand. The small, portable speaker is equipped with a built-in retractable cable that connects to any device with a standard headphone jack and a rechargeable battery that allows for up to eight hours of playback. G-ZIP is constructed in a rugged housing structure with a protective elastomer base and a flip-out metal loop, making it easy to clip on to any strap or bag for on-the-go listening.
A Bluetooth wireless version of G-ZIP, called G-POP, is available on G-Project’s website for $40, and is equipped with a built-in microphone.
“While all of our G-Project speakers are portable, we wanted to design something that’s small enough to toss in a bag and loud enough to share with your friends,” said Matthew Paprocki, founder of G-Project. “We are excited to introduce G-ZIP to Walmart customers, along with our other highly-rated G-Project speakers.”
Also launching today is G-Project’s new website, which introduces G-Project’s online store and G-Project Culture. The online store will offer the full line of G-Project speakers, in addition to apparel, including hats and t-shirts. The Culture section will highlight the talented musicians, photographers and performers that G-Project has teamed up with, launching with stunning photographs by California photographer Jay Watson, jaw-dropping dance videos with performer and choreographer Madd Chadd and a G-Music section dedicated to the artists featured in G-Project’s videos. Musicians include District 78, Mystery Skulls, Chasing Kings and Parade of Lights.
For the launch of G-ZIP, G-PROJECT teamed up with Chadd “Madd Chadd” Smith (Step Up 3, TheLXD) and electronic music group District 78 to create a fun dance video, unvieling the new speaker. Check-out the video here: http://youtu.be/KmlG7Hqyogg.
