Acoustic Research Unveils Spring 2014 Collection of Tech Accessories

Acoustic Research, a brand owned by Voxx International Corporation (NASDAQ: VOXX), debuts their entire line of attractive and functional tech accessories designed with the modern woman in mind. The collection is inspired by fashions such as crisp white collars seen on the runway at Fashion Week and bright energetic colors such as cayenne, which is forecasted as a top hue for this spring.

The line rethinks traditional tech-accessory shape, color and surface, adding a feminine touch to these everyday items. The Spring 2014 collection includes a Zipstick backup battery that features a panic alarm for personal safety, a wireless Bluetooth speaker, fashionable charging cables, and a mini speaker. The collection will be on display to media members for the first time at Central Hall 10404, 10415, the Voxx International Corporation booth, at the 2014 Consumer Electronic Show, January 7-10.

"Research predicts that millennial women will account for almost 15 percent of all U.S. retail sales by the year 2020, with consumer electronics being a top industry for growth," said David Geise, President of VOXX Accessories Corporation. "We created AR for her because we see the great impact millennial women will have on the American tech industry in the coming years and we wanted to be at the forefront of that movement."

AR for her will be participating in the Digital Divas panel on January 6, 2014, at 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the North Hall during CES. The panel is hosted by TWICE and Cosmopolitan Magazine, and will explore the driving forces behind young women's CE purchases.

Packing both style and safety, ZipStick, $34.99, is one of the first fashionable portable battery packs to feature a built-in LED flashlight and panic alarm. ZipStick features runway-inspired designs including playful polka dots and white tufted patterns for the always on-the-run woman. It offers fast charging and backup power wherever you go, giving you a boost when you need it most. Best of all, an integrated panic alarm alerts others around you when you find yourself in danger.

More than just a beautiful device, ZipStick has a high-performance 2200 mAh UL listed Lithium ion battery under its hood and delivers high efficiency output for fast charging. ZipStick is compatible with all Apple and Android phones and any USB-charged devices and is available in cayenne polka dot and white. Optional versions without a panic alarm are available in black, cobalt, red, animal print, cayenne polka dot and white for $29.99.

The Wireless Bluetooth speaker's quilted tufted look comes in black and white to complement a classic look or city chic style, and features soft rounded corners and leather detailing. The line also includes a white and cayenne polka dot speaker for a fun and flirty touch. The Bluetooth speaker wirelessly connects to all compatible devices to stream music, has a built in microphone for hands-free calling and features a rechargeable battery for extra portability. These features, along with a lightweight size and an optional carrying strap make it easy to transport the speaker from room to room while getting ready, or out on the town for exceptional sound day or night.

The wireless Bluetooth speaker streams music from up to 30 feet away with a 3.5mm input for wired connecting options. Play, pause, track and volume controls are built into the top of the speaker for easy control and the speaker's rechargeable battery provides up to 15 hours of music. The AR for her wireless Bluetooth speaker is available in white, black and cayenne polka dot and will be available Spring 2014 for $79.99.

Charge and sync in style with bright and colorful cables available for lightning, micro USB and 30-Pin devices. The 3-foot flat cables allow for tangle-free and personalized charging and syncing. They work with any USB charging device for power on-the-go and are made from Apple Certified and approved materials. The cables come with multiple connectors for a one stop solution for all your charging needs and will be available Spring 2014 from $11.99-$24.99.

This petite mini Bluetooth speaker, $34.99, packages sound in an elegant design and adds music to everyday outings.
