PUMA Golf announced today a new product sure to be a hit with music-loving golfers.
The PUMA SOUNDCHUCK is a new and innovative Bluetooth wireless speaker inspired by the sport of martial arts, specifically "nunchucks." Designed with two circular speakers connected by a sleek cord resembling the popular martial arts piece, PUMA SOUNDCHUCK will be blaring music waves, just in time for the holiday shopping season. To add a bit of flair and fun to the product, the speakers were created with magnets, allowing you to connect and detach the speakers easily around your golf cart, golf bag or anywhere else.
And don't be confused -- the funky SOUNDCHUCK speakers aren't strictly for the golf course. You can use these speakers anywhere and in all conditions since they're weather resistant.
"For years sports and music have gone hand in hand with pump up mixes, victory mixes and more. PUMA Golf is bringing that energy to golf with the PUMA SOUNDCHUCK," said Bob Philion, President of COBRA PUMA GOLF. "The portable and magnetic speaker system is perfect for moving from the driving range, to the course or anywhere else. COBRA PUMA GOLF athletes like Rickie Fowler, Lexi Thompson and Jonas Blixt listen to music while they practice, the PUMA SOUNDCHUCK will enhance that experience and bring music to golfers."
Features on the new PUMA SOUNDCHUCK include the following:
- Wireless, pairing with any Bluetooth Audio device
-A lightweight, sleek design weighing less than 1 pound
- Weather resistant and great for indoor or outdoor use
- 6+ hours of battery life
- Ease of use and ease of charge with a Micro-USB Cable
- Voice prompt activated
- Unique speakers that can magnetically connect together
- Take and answer calls via the built-in microphone
- Crystal clear Hi-Fi acoustics

PUMA introduced audio and consumer electronic accessories last year with PUMA earbuds for sport and lifestyle use, over-the-ear PUMA Vortice headphones and accessories such as laptop cases, iPhone and iPad cases.
The PUMA SOUNDCHUCK retails for $129.99 and is available in both red and black at Golf Galaxy now and online at www.golfgalaxy.com through the holiday season. More colors will be available at select golf retailers in 2014.
