This portable bluetooth speaker is an upgrade from the Soundcore. The Soundcore 2 is upgraded to 2 x 6W high performance drivers which delivers stronger bass than the earlier model. It's battery life is also extended to 24-hour playtime. It is now rated at IPX5 water and dust resistant. I compared it to my Cambridge Soundworks Oontz Angle and the Soundcore 2 definitely packs a better bass oomph than the Oontz. However, treble clarity is about the same ... which, in my opinion is pretty good. I've tested some electronic dance music with heavy bass - sounds fantastic! Play some slow acoustic songs - very crisp and clear. I have not tested it's battery life and cannot attest to Anker's claim that it will play for 24 hours. I did not test it with water splashes as well and I will take Anker's word for it that it's rated at IPX5 water resistant. When paired with your phone you can use it as an external speaker and talk through it with it's built in mic. The unit comes with Bluetooth 4.2 which stays connected with your paired device even further ... up to 60 ft.

The Christmas Edition comes in a very pretty looking silver and red box with reindeers and all. In the box there is the speaker and a hard carry case. They have also included their premium audio aux cable with metal jacks (not plastic). A carabiner is also included where you can hook up the carry case to your bag or belt or anywhere you please. The speaker itself is the usual Anker quality - very well manufactured. The charging port and aux port are covered by a rubber flap which fits very snugly to the body (to prevent any water access). The entire body is made of rubber except the grill.

At this time I do not know the price of the Christmas Edition but the speaker itself sells on Amazon at $40. I believe when on sale it may sell at $30. I believe Anker will publish the Christmas Edition price in due course.
