You’re probably thinking about Bluetooth speakers, but these are not. Pringles Party Speakers are old-school battery-powered wired speakers that play audio from a 3.5 mm audio connection. Nothing fancy, but they do look pretty, and you can get them free with purchase of three 150 gm Pringles cans, so why not get yours?
The Pringles Party Speakers are powered by 3x AAA batteries. They can play mono audio from a 3.5 mm audio input. You can also daisy chain a second one, and slide a switch on each speaker to select which to play the left or right audio channel.
You can also daisy chain more speakers, up to 20 of them, to greatly amplify music for your party.
The Pringles Party Speakers are designed to fit into the top of a Pringles can, so that you can further acoustically amplify its sound. You should probably clean out the can first before you use it!
Sound quality isn’t that great. Pringles say the Party Speakers “sound better than in-built laptop speakers”, but I think they’re not much different. However, considering that you’re less likely to want to lug a notebook around everywhere, and might perhaps find boom boxes somewhat expensive, the Pringles Party Speakers might be something that works for you.
There are a number of cute hacks suggested by Pringles which you can make out from the photo below. The DIY bike stereo sounds pretty useful!
