The family of speakers comes in “Barricade Mini”, “Barricade” and “Barricade XL” sizes and is available online at select retailers. “Barricade XL” will be available later. “We’re bringing a fresh perspective to a market where consumers are asked to choose between aesthetics and performance. But with Barricade, they don’t have to,” said Amlan Bhattacharjya, Founder and CEO of Brandeyes Distributors Pvt Ltd, in a statement.
Priced at RS 5,999, “Barricade” comes with up to eight-hour battery life, an external device charging, built-in microphone, and auxiliary in and out functionality that enables multi-speaker connectivity. “Barricade XL” that is priced at RS 11,999 comes with additional features like battery life up to 10 hours and multi-speaker pairing.
Of the three, “Barricade Mini” is the most lightweight and compact, equipped with Bluetooth wireless connectivity, a battery life up to six hours, and a buoyant water and impact resistant construction.
