Rinaro X Medicom Toy BE@RBRICK Audio 400% Portable Bluetooth Speaker Announced

Are you a fan of BE@RBRICK? Fancy a portable Bluetooth speaker fashioned in BE@RBRICK’s body? Well, recently, Medicom Toy collaborated with Rinaro to bring you the BE@RBRICK Portable Bluetooth Speaker. Rinaro is the company that made the drivers found on Meze’s audiophile headphones, like the Elite, Empyrean, and Liric. While a Bluetooth speaker will not sound as good as Meze’s Hi-Fi headphones, it’s quite fun to see a Bluetooth speaker in the form of BE@RBRICK. Check out more details from the official news release below.

BE@RBRICK JUST GOT ITS VOICE – MEDICOM TOY announces the first BE@RBRICK Portable Bluetooth Speaker

MEDICOM TOY has teamed up with acoustic engineering company RINARO ISODYNAMICS to create one of the most cutting-edge BE@RBRICKs ever. With over 20,000 hours of engineering time and 214 newly-designed parts, the BE@RBRICK AUDIO 400% Portable Bluetooth Speaker delivers an exciting new experience for BE@RBRICK fans. Designed to be authentic to the original BE@RBRICK 400%, yet reimagined for exceptional audio playback.

Featuring QUAD’360™, an omnidirectional sound technology exclusively developed by RINARO for this collaboration, the speaker has 4 custom-engineered acoustic drivers set in the BE@RBRICK’s head. These play in unison to generate a seamless 360-degree field of sound that punches far above the speaker’s size.

Operating the speaker is made simple with a single button push, allowing iOS or Android devices to connect via Bluetooth easily. And for added fan appeal, the volume and track selection controls are located in the left and right hands. Twist the right hand to skip the track and twist the left to change the playback volume.

For additional power, 2 BE@RBRICK AUDIO speakers can be connected to create a true stereo pair, delivering a more immersive experience.

The speaker boasts up to 6 hrs* of portable listening and a rapid battery charging time of 1.5 hrs via USB-C. Additionally, the battery has been designed to be easily swapped out in the future to ensure years of playback.

This is a new era for BE@RBRICK. All the enjoyment of the previous collectables. Amplified with multidimensional sound.
