Bowers & Wilkins has been making high-end audio gear for quite some time, but they’re finally throwing their hat into the ring of portable bluetooth speakers. Two specially designed 50mm drivers designed and built to maximize the output. Twin bass radiators that deliver depth and impact on the low end. 18 solid hours of playback. Light signals and audio cues for playback functions. Bluetooth aptX for high-end, crystal clear streaming. Then there’s the overall design. While the honeycomb pattern you see around the edges certainly looks cool, it actually serves a purpose. Dubbed Micro Matrix, the interlocking cells that make up the honeycomb actually brace the cabinet to reduce vibration and distortion. Somehow, the engineers at Bowers & Wilkins managed to make all of this fit into a roughly 2lb package.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
