Turn on the party

On top of the Damson Pearl you'll find a large circular power button and call key. The latter lets you use the device as a speakerphone when a call comes in.

A bass booster

The bottom of the Damson Pearl features a rubbery foot to keep the speaker steady while its down-firing woofers are in action.

Charging and daisy chaining

You charge the Pearl's battery through a Micro-USB port on back. Also here is a 3.5mm headphone jack for audio input and daisy-chaining speakers together.

Bite into bigger sound

Shaped like a Zeppelin or a football (sorry, Brits), the oval Damson Oyster is much larger than the Pearl.

On both the right and left sides of the Damson Oyster are 1.5-inch drivers. A pair of 2-inch drivers facing front bring the speaker's total up to four.
