This week's gadget is the TreVolo portable electrostatic bluetooth speaker by BenQ. It’s the world's first portable Bluetooth speaker with electrostatic technology. Many music enthusiasts feel electrostatic technology delivers superior sound quality. But electrostatic speakers have been big and power hungry. Now, thanks to BenQ, that’s no longer true.

The BenQ TreVolo design, with its collapsible wings and bi-directional sound, captures an incredible range of sounds. Dual amplification and precision-tuned small woofers deliver clean, accurate lower notes that electrostatic speakers alone miss. Dick is very impressed with the BenQ TreVolo’s sleek metallic housing and powerful looks. The 12-hour battery life lets you take your music anywhere in style. And so you can stay in-touch while listening, an integrated noise-canceling microphone enables you to sound better than ever when you answer your phone through the system.

Frequency response 60 Hz - 20 kHz / Bluetooth 4.1 / Inputs: 3.5 mm stereo input, USB audio / aptX Support. It’s available in silver and in black. $299.00. There is a lot of information about this new electrostatic speaker system technology on the company website.
