The Packable Wireless System from Grain Audio re-imagines the portable Bluetooth® wireless speaker into an object of desire and clear, authentic sound. The walnut enclosure, combined with Waves MaxxAudioTM suite ensures studio quality sound out of a super portable speaker. Perfect for around the house or to take with you, the eight hours of battery life allows you to rock without having to worry about charging. The PWS is sure to take the world by storm, and re-define a category.
Leveraging the professional sound tools of MaxxAudio® (created by Waves a recipient of a Technical GRAMMY Award®) which is found in many famous mixing boards, the PWS delivers music as it was intended to sound. No games or artificial enhancements, just the sweet sounds as they were meant to be heard. We also include both Apt-X and AAC to ensure the highest quality audio standards.
We love things we want to touch and hold, and we know you will too. We’ve separated ourselves from the pack even further with the simple, elegant and timeless design of the PWS. It looks simple because it should be beautiful and easy to use, and that’s what it is.
"There’s been a glut of portable Bluetooth speakers in recent years, but few deliver the kind of rich, deep sound that makes you want to bring one with you. The PWS is that rarity. It sounds incredible and has six to eight hours of battery life…" -Outside Magazine- Summer Buyers Guide: The Best Gear of 2014
I compared the PWS to the Jambox — still widely considered to be the gold standard among portable speakers — and it made the Jambox sound muddy and weak.

"...everything about the design oozes luxe without looking like it’s trying too hard."
"...a depth and clarity that makes plastic competitors sound, yes, plastic."
-Wall Street Journal (The Off Duty Fall 50, Product #45)
"Much of Grain’s success has come from a trifecta of elements: high-end internal components, sleek minimalist design, and ease of use."
"Perhaps our favorite of the devices we sampled, think of the Grain Audio PWS as the indie darling of Bluetooth speakers...This speaker’s solid walnut wood paneling is classy as hell, and because the wood contains natural variations, no two units are the same."
"With a walnut enclosure that boosts acoustic quality and a silvery sleek frame, this 7-inch Bluetooth boom box is the perfect adventure date: Sturdy, loud and handsome."
- Wired Magazine, Guiltless Gift Guide, December 2013 [Print Edition]
"A gorgeous, one-of-a-kind BlueTooth speaker for $249? Don’t mind if I do."
-The New York Times
"...it's refreshing to see a speaker as refined and as beautiful as the $250 Grain Audio PWS."
- Wired Magazine (Things We Love: The Gear and Gadgets We Couldn’t Live Without This Summer)
"And when we put their Packable Wireless System to the test... the small speaker impressed us with its clarity of sound and simple, unassuming exterior."
"The folks at Grain Audio have spared no expense at putting together this bad boy. By imbuing the PWS with MaxxAudio, an audiophile-targeted sweetening tool-set from the renowned folks at Waves, the quality of sound that you can expect is unparalleled. I owned and operated a recording studio for many years and Waves was the most trusted name in the industry when it came to plug-ins. They’ve brought that same integrity to the PWS and the impact is great. Rich, full, warm, round… whatever word you prefer to describe luxurious audio, PWS is that. To my ears, the entire spectrum is well-represented from bombastic bottom to sizzling high-end."
