Let’s talk about the Evoke, one of the most pleasant looking wireless speakers I’ve seen in a while. The front grill has a beautiful pattern that reminds me of Jawbone’s Jambox. It’s almost become a symbol for portable audio, hasn’t it! The Evoke has a pillow-esque design machined out of aluminum. It gives the illusion of being soft and he anodized metal feels great to touch. While we’re on the subject of touch and everything tactile, Evoke’s product experience relies on hand proximity in an unusually beautiful way. The volume controls are capacitive and flush on the surface. You see them only when they light up, and they light up only when they sense your hand nearby. It’s quite a nifty feature to add, don’t you think! Makes sure the product’s design remains pure and becomes functional only when it needs to!
