OM Audio’s levitating Bluetooth Speaker
The wireless speaker can connect to most devices including smartphones, notebooks and tablets via Bluetooth 4.0 over a distance of approximately 33 feet. And while the floating effect is pretty cool, the OM/ONE can play music with or without the base which comes in handy if you want to use the 1.3-pound speaker outdoors. The spherical speaker (6.3 inches x diameter x 1.6 inches height) works in concert with a magnetic base (2.1 pounds, 1.6 x 1.2 inches) to achieve the spinning, levitating effect. In terms of audio, the OM/ONE relies on its 75mm audio driver to deliver clear, balanced mids, highs and lows. The Om/One device also contains a microphone, allowing the levitating orb to take calls, too. On its surface, which looks something like cross between the Death Star and a soccer ball, is a hidden sensor that allows you to turn the device on and off as well as pair it with your audio source, such as a smartphone. Dubbed the OM/ONE, the $179 portable speaker is now available, just in time to float into homes for the holiday season. The OM/ONE will be available in black, white and disco ball when it ships. It is a complete party package.
