Beatpower just announced its existence to the world today and it's brought a fleet of speakers to help celebrate. For years its parent company, CorpCom, has developed and distributed audio products for other outfits, but it set out to develop its own line of HiFi Bluetooth speakers roughly 13 months ago. Each of the firm's boxes connects to audio sources via bluetooth, feature USB ports for charging devices and are accompanied by a Bluetooth remote that can even control treble and bass. With the help of architects and industrial engineers, Beatpower has managed to concoct particularly striking audio hardware.

Take the outfit's 40Hz to 20KHz BeatClear speaker, which packs 350mV amp input sensitivity, two tweeters and a pair of woofers inside a clear acrylic case. There's no release date attached to the hardware just yet, but it's set to retail for $199. The BeatBlock set of speakers wraps a pair of tweeters and a duo of woofers in a striking hand-stitched leather package, which comes in a variety of color combos, while offering a 20Hz to 20KHz frequency range. Word of a release date hasn't arrived yet, but it'll carry a $199 price tag.

The equally slick BeatHome speaker features a 40Hz to 20KHz frequency range and packs a pair of tweeters and woofers inside an angular piano lacquer-lined housing. Again, a release date is MIA, but it'll set buyers back $199. If you're willing to drop $299 at an unspecified availability date, Beatpower is offering BeatPro -- a pair of speakers that each include a duo of woofers and two tweeters, which offer 40Hz to 20KHz frequency range. Hit the source links for the full list of specs or take a gander at the bordering hands-on gallery.
