Soundchuck brings music to course

PUMA
By Jonathan Wall, PGATOUR.COM Equipment Insider

Listening to music on the course or the range used to be a practice that was frowned upon at most courses. But over the last few years, that's changed with the introduction of wireless speakers like Puma's Soundchuck that have become the perfect musical companion on the course.

Inspired by the sport of martial arts — specifically "nunchucks" with its two circular speakers connected by a cord — the Soundchuck features two wireless Bluetooth speakers and a water-resistant silicone cover for indoor or outdoor use.

Each speaker also has a built-in magnet that allows you to connect and detach the speakers with ease and hang the device on the cart or golf bag.

"The portable and magnetic speaker system is perfect for moving from the driving range, to the course or anywhere else," said Bob Philion, president of CobraPuma Golf. "CobraPuma 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."

The Soundchuck weighs less than 1 pound and has a rechargeable lithium-ion battery with 6-plus hours of battery life. Along with the ability to connect your smartphone to the device and listen to music, the wireless speaker can also take and answer calls via the built-in microphone.
