At CES 2013 in Las Vegas, accessory maker Zagg introduced a new two-in-one speaker called Origin that combines quality sound with a unique, portable design that’s perfect for taking the party on-the-go.
The Zagg Origin is the company’s brand new two-in-one speaker that offers two unique ways for users to listen to music. The first, is a small Bluetooth speaker that when detached from the base, serves as an on-the-go source of music. The Bluetooth speaker has a built-in battery that allows for up to 10 hours of battery life, ensuring that users won’t have to continually worry about life when using the Bluetooth speaker by itself.

The Bluetooth speaker not only charges when it’s docked to the base but the music seamlessly transfers over when that occurs. If the sound from the Bluetooth speaker isn’t enough, the Origin also can serve as a full-on speaker system.
The speaker has compatibility with Bluetooth enabled devices, allowing users to play music while using their iPhone or Android device, and it also comes with a remote control that users can use to adjust basic functions like volume, treble, bass and more.
Zagg Origin sounded loud and well-balanced on an extremely packed showroom floor, something that should translate well to a loud party or even a night of casually listening to some tunes. And with that type of battery life with the Bluetooth speaker, the device is even perfect for a full day in the park or at the beach.
The company still has not released specific details in regards to the Origin’s upcoming release date, only saying that it will be released seven weeks from CES which should mean an arrival on shelves sometime this Spring.
Fortunately, Zagg did announce pricing for the Origin and those interested in its two-in-one capabilities will have to shell out $249.99 for the privilege of owning this unique portable speaker system.
