You missed the point, with 4 billion guys in the world even if only one percent liked pink, that would still account for a lot of people, but looking at the larger picture, it isn't. Furthermore, my post was more aimed at the human psyche rather than an attack on the color pink. Brown diamonds didn't really take off until one company rebranded it as chocolate. Why? Because there are negative connotations associated with the color brown such as dirt and feces . Same thing is at work here; rose gold just sounds so much better than pink; I'm sure many people whom would never touch pink, yet love "rose gold". It's a manipulation of the human psyche.

Maybe with male kids, but “most” men are fine with rose gold. I get your point though.

Rose gold, also known as pink gold and red gold, was popular in Russia at the beginning of the nineteenth century, and was also known as Russian gold, although this term is now obsolete. Rose gold jewelry is becoming more popular in the 21st century, and is commonly used for wedding rings, bracelets, and other jewelry.

:facepalm:
You took the time to copy paste what rose gold is from Wikipedia, but you didn't bother looking at Ncredible's website to see this is called a white/rose gold speaker. OMG!!! :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm:

I think his point is not about the physical color itself, but rather the wording associated with it.
For example, if you name something that is pink rose gold instead of pink, most people, especially adult male will feel a lot less embarrassed to buy it.
So he is saying even if it is the same color, how you market the color matters.
If I buy something that is not in deep discounted, my father will punish me; everyone will laugh at me. I will be the strange kid who doesn't fit in.

What are not able to comprehend? Rose gold is pink in colour. It's ok you like pink - there's nothing wrong with that. You don't need to throw out those rose gold sweatpants lol

14,525 reviews for an amazon waterproof shower speaker... Is that a typo?? I've never seen so many reviews on amazon

There is no way for me to compare quality of products in this case and I would go with Amazon one since it has 4.4 rating.

Good conversation.

I'll quickly settle the matter as someone who's worked in sales.

Rose Gold = Pink to 98.2% of men that interact with it on first blush.

The contrarian males that like the color and want to make it their own, no one is stopping you. More power to you, it goes well with a light pink polo shirt. So in fairness, let's likewise respect those who opt out of this product. There's a reason this color is massively discounted.

OP: maximum output of 2x8W, 10 hour battery, bluetooth 5.0
yours: maximum output 1x5W, 6 hour battery, bluetooth 4.2

On paper, it's not even close. That was the third google search result.

Good job Dr. Phil
PS. My comment actually isn't meant to be sarcastic at all. You bring up really valid points that I was thinking, but am too lazy to explain it so comprehensively. I'm sure alot of ppls agree with your statement as well :)

Your original post was about rose gold, the object, not rose gold the color. I'm pretty sure no one here thinks they use gold in this speaker. Your original post had nothing to do with what we are talking about here. You are right about one thing...rose gold is pink in color but it is not pink. That would be like calling black Grey. That was my original point.

I don't discriminate against anyone based on color and your homophobic comments are best left to yourself.
