This desktop speaker from Definitive Technology is called the Incline. As you can see it leans back. But that’s not what makes it special. The Incline is actually bipolar. Bipolar speakers radiate sound from the front and the rear, so no matter where it’s pointed, you’ll hear what you wanna hear. If you don’t know the name Definitive Technology, head to your local audio shop and demo some speakers. I’ve enjoyed their towers for the last 10 years.
Audiophile-quality sound in a waterproof earbud is a tall order. But that’s what BlueAnt Pump HD wireless waterproof sportbuds deliver. Effortless pairing with your Bluetooth 3.0 device plus a lightweight, comfy form factor make it awesome. A fully customizable fit system make it even awesomer, but it’s just IP67-rated, so it will endure heavy sweating but it’s not recommended for swimming.
The warm sound of classic analog tubes. They are to speakers what film is to photography: something to remember fondly & fetishize no matter how much technology advances. Tubecore’s latest speaker, the Duo blends the old with new to become the world’s first tube-driven, wi-fi enabled bluetooth speaker.
Big bass. That’s what the Klipsch 2.1 Stadium system has in store. 400 watts of it coming through a half-dozen speakers: dual 1-inch Titanium compression drivers, two 3.5-inch aluminum midrange drivers, and two 5.25-inch long throw subwoofers to be exact.
The Timbre speaker from Australia’s Bruns Acoustics looks like a relic from the early days of rock-n-roll. That is intentional. But beneath the leather handle, salvaged timber exterior and aluminum hardware, the internals are rigged for bluetooth connectivity. There’s also a 75W analog amp in there. Choose from classic woodgrain finishes or their antiqued Relic series.
This portable bluetooth speaker from Braven isn’t scared of a little drop in the dirt or a spray of flying mud. Butt it’s more than just tough. It features HD sound from a pair of 2-inch omnidirectional drivers, NFC connection and offers wireless pairing with other speakers.
The Cone is a smart speaker. Like the Nest Thermostat & other products that “think”, the Cone tracks your usage & listening habits and feeds the data into algorithms that help predict what you want to hear next.
