There are many Bluetooth speakers out there, and most of them are the usual cylinders. Though they work, they aren’t that attractive. If you are looking for an attractive Bluetooth speaker, then Om Audio’s Bluetooth speaker can be your best pick.
Om Audio, maker of smart audio accessories such as the earpiece earphones and Mantra speakers, has developed another new product – Om/One floating speakers. The Om/One features a base and a round speaker that levitates above it, spinning gently, thanks to a magnetic base. You can grab the sphere and carry it with you as a portable speaker or let it hang out above the stand and play audio. It also includes a microphone so it can be used to conduct phone conversations as well. The battery of the final version lasts up to 15 hours, which would be impressive even without the magnetic levitation trick.
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.
Om/One comes in three colors: basic black, basic white and disco ball. The speakers are scheduled to go on sale in December for $179 and can be preordered on the company’s website.
