The HouseParty Portable Wireless is the ultimate home portable speaker packed with both AAC and aptX Bluetooth, along with app-enhanced technology. Stream music wirelessly to the speaker from your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone or tablet, or download the free SmartLink Wireless app and control every feature of the speaker on your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad, from anywhere in the room. The curved pebble design completes an exceptional finish to a speaker which also boasts immersive sound and complete portability.

The powerful rechargeable lithium-battery provides portability whether you’re at home or on the move. Enhance battery life with extended power settings or amplify your speaker’s volume with party mode. Control these properties wirelessly including adjustable EQ settings, individual acoustic levels, and battery management.

Wireless Streaming with AAC and aptX Bluetooth.
Wireless Audio Streaming with AAC and aptX Bluetooth

The HouseParty Portable Wireless comes complete with the latest in Bluetooth technology, with both Advanced Audio Codec (AAC) and aptX; the industry-leading standard for high quality, efficient audio delivery. This means streaming music over Bluetooth is indistinguishable from CD-quality audio. The advanced audio coding provides instant delivery and lower power operation from your device, with optimal performance.

Bluetooth streaming means you can get an amazing audio experience with your Android or Blackberry smartphones and tablets as well as iOS devices. Compatible with any Bluetooth enabled device, you'll be able to access, stream and enjoy your favourite tunes in high-quality audio without the need for wires.

Smart Pebble Design
Rechargeable Lithium Battery

Take your speaker everywhere with the rechargeable lithium-battery. With battery power of up to 16-hours, let the music carry-on whether you’re room-to-room, at a BBQ or relaxing by the pool. The HouseParty Portable Wireless is the all-round practical speaker.

Case Friendly Dock.
iPad Charging / Playback

The HouseParty Portable Wireless is fully compatible with iPad, iPad 2 and new iPad. Made for iPad means the speaker will quick charge your iPad and fully support playing music from your iPod library. You can also use the iPad optimised SmartLink Wireless app to control the functionality of the speaker.

Case Friendly Dock

Docking wells are a thing of the past. The HouseParty Portable Wireless comes with a retractable universal dock which means a reinforced flexible connector and no more individual dock adaptors. You can also dock your iOS device with its case on. Hassle free docking: more time playing your music.

USB Charging for Tablets, Smartphones, and Mobile Devices

The HouseParty Portable Wireless is the perfect way to ensure all of your mobile devices are charged and ready to go when you wake in the morning.

Line-in Port for Use with Other Music Players

Use the HouseParty Portable Wireless with any music player with a 3.5mm jack. Enjoy your favourite music, movies or games from a Smartphone, MP3 player, Tablet or Laptop by connecting a 3.5mm audio cable into the line-in port.

Battery Management

My mate brought one of these along camping for a friends birthday and it was great.
Managed to let us all play music from our phones for 2 nights with a good clear sound no problems.
And even better everybody was using it to keep their mobiles charged.
Just got mine delivered and love it. Looking forward to when the sun finally comes out and I can use it outside.

My only gripe is it would have been great if it came with interchangeable docks as I have an iPhone 5 with the new lightning connector and this speaker comes with the old 30 pin one. Small matter tho as I can connect it via USB and the Bluetooth works great so can still rest it on the dock or keep my phone in my pocket when out and about playing music.

Very happy with the Gear 4 House Party Portable Wireless Docking Station Speaker. It arrived very quickly which I was pleased about. It is ideal for using with the groups that I run where we need music in the background. The only down side is that in a large space is doesn't have the power to create a greater sound. Love using it at home. The battery lasts a long time. Very happy with it.

Good value for money at less than £50.00. Would have been disappointed if I had paid the original price as top end sound isn't great and I can't get connected via the application. However, does exactly what I wanted it to do, and as I say at less than £50.00 a real bargain.

I love this speaker and use it to play music from my iPad wirelessly. My son uses it when his mates come round to play music from there iPhones. I have other docking stations that are not Bluetooth enabled which limits their versatility.
Good sound from a single speaker.
Wish I'd got one years ago.

Excellent speaker that you can use to dock your iPhone or use with Bluetooth. Good battery life and recharges via USB. Can't fault it.
