Rugged Bluetooth® Speaker is Perfect Companion for BMX Riders,
Skateboarders and Mountain Bikers

New York, September 8, 2015Hercules, a digital audio pioneer for more than 30 years, today introduces a new product in its WAE (Wireless Audio Experience) product line; the WAE Outdoor 04Plus Bluetooth®  Wireless Speaker. Specially designed for extreme sport enthusiasts and riders from all genres, whether water, snow or dirt, the WAE Outdoor 04Plus is both powerful and rock-solid with its ruggedized construction.

In skate parks, on BMX tracks, mountain bike trails, snow-covered slopes or just out in the street during a session with friends, the WAE Outdoor 04Plus is completely “rideproof,” offering users’ confidence against damage from shock, water, snow, dust, sand or even mud.

It responds perfectly to riders’ needs thanks to its stunning sound and compact size, and has been designed to accompany them onboard their bike while riding with a simple mounting bracket. This makes it the ideal music companion to let riders experience all of their rides with even more intensity, and help them get psyched up during training or during a cruise with friends.



Thanks to its IP66 certification, the WAE Outdoor 04Plus is totally protected against sand, mud and even the finest dust particles. It also provides complete protection against high-pressure water jets and snow. Its rugged design, solid rubber end-pieces, protective metal grille, and reinforced access cover for its connectors ensure excellent shock-resistance, as well as protection against extreme outdoor use conditions.

Powerful, stunning sound

Despite its compact size designed to accompany riders anywhere, this new member of the WAE family pumps out clear, powerful sound, optimized for outdoor conditions (wind, noise). The WAE Outdoor 04Plus is a compact speaker featuring a passive decompression driver.

Total freedom

WAE Outdoor 04Plus gives riders total freedom: built-in Bluetooth 3.0 A2DP wireless technology makes it simple to stream music from any Bluetooth device – including smartphones, tablets and laptops – with no awkward wires getting in the way. What’s more, its built-in rechargeable battery provides a whopping 12 hours of battery life.

The speaker’s shape and size ensure excellent handling, while its weight of just 0.6 lbs/280 grams makes it incredibly easy to use, including with attachment accessories. The WAE Outdoor 04Plus features a standard-size screw thread, allowing riders to install it on a bike mount, suction cup mount, tripod or other mounting options.

The WAE Outdoor 04Plus in blue is currently available at a suggested retail price of $69.99 while additional mounts and colors will be offered in the near future.
