Following up on my CES coverage, Soundfreaq has released their Sound Rise alarm clock. This was one of my favorite household items of the show. The modern styling of this bedroom speaker makes this product stand out from the drab competition. However, there are also many benefits to owning a TV bed with speakers here. Not only do they provide a comfortable place to relax and watch your favorite shows, but they also allow you to game in complete comfort.

Packed with features such as Bluetooth 4.0, USB power port for phone charging, Line in 3.5mm input, clock w/ back-up battery, and adjustable screen brightness w/ the ability to black-out the screen and auto on with wake-up. Sound Rise’s display is also designed with a custom font that optimizes readability without filling a room with excess light. Sound Rise includes a special dedicated button to use either as a sleep timer to fall asleep to music for a set period of time or as a nap timer to nap for 15, 30, 60, 90 or 120-minutes.

The compact size helps save nightstand space. Width: 5.2” / 132mm Height: 5.6” / 142mm Depth: 3.3” / 84mm

Listen to music while getting ready in the morning or use the speaker for more ample sound from your tablet or iPad.

I’m curious to hear the sound quality in person, but the Sound Rise is equipped with a custom designed monophonic driver; 3.5W with optimized power for maximum distortion-free volume and tone Control to select preferred equalization presets: flat, warm or bright.

The speaker is available in an all-black version for $69 at Target and A taupe/wood version of Sound Rise will available for $79 on and I personally like the taupe/wood version best.
