Great Balls of Bass

Great Balls of Bass

The Pop Up Bass is a playful take on the bass speaker that makes clever use of the low frequency vibrations emitted during playback. Lightweight styrofoam balls react to the vibrations and go wild when you crank it up! They stay in sync with the beat, moving to the music and creating a visual experience in addition to the high quality audio.

Classic Acoustics Meets Modern Tech

Classic Acoustics Meets Modern Tech

Stream nostalgia with the first ever Bluetooth gramophone, the Gramovox! The timeless design is not only aesthetically “old-school,” but also recreates the same resonant, vintage, organic sound by adhering to the same acoustical principles as the old gramophone. To achieve this, the designers worked around the philosophy that the fewer things they changed about the original, the more things would still work. Catch the vid to see how it blends classic acoustics with modern tech…

What does music mean to you?

What does music mean to you?

This was the question asked to the young participants of the competition run by Bang & Olufsen. To designers Sam Whyman & Andrew Guscott, it meant the B&O A9 – Weekender Edition. This beautiful speaker focuses on personal time, which is a luxury these days. The purpose of the design is to make you appreciate the details like the melody of the song you are listening to and of course your environment.

The dock is dead. Wireless is in.

The dock is dead. Wireless is in.

This strange little chunk of plastic doesn’t resemble what we think of as an audio speaker at all, but its unusual design isn’t all about aesthetics. The modular system was actually designed to be used in fours- connecting to each other and your devices wirelessly via Bluetooth. Volume can be controlled with your device, but to pack a serious audible punch, just add more Omni!

Best Bluetooth Speaker Under $70?

Best Bluetooth Speaker Under $70?

Is this the best bluetooth speaker for under $70? I’ve tried many portable speakers and man, they’ve come a long away. They’re loud, bassy, and generally distortion free. The good ones all cost $100+ so when Soundfreaq sent me the Sound Spot to try out, I was a little skeptical. However, I am familiar with the company as I’ve tried their original Sound Platform speaker before and came away quite impressed. So what do I look for in small, compact bluetooth speaker? It has to look good, sound good, and painless to pair. Hit the jump for my review.
