Sony's Glass Sound Speaker is as sexy as a speaker gets
Sony's glass sound speakers.
Part of a new line of really cool looking but pricy products from Sony's Life Space UX Division.
Half wireless bluetooth speaker Half lantern with a dimmable LED bulb that mimics the flame.
It's got double the mood setting potential that can be moved around freely because it's got an integrated rechargeable battery.
That gives your around four hours of music playback depending on the volume level.
It's one of those products you really want as soon as you see it but its $800 price tag is a bit of a buzz kill.
Unless you happen to have a lot of disposable income lying Hang her out.
You can dim the light and adjust the volume using Sony SongPal App for iOS and Android devices but when your phone isn't close by, there are lighting and volume controls hidden at the bottom of the device.
And not sure this speakers deliver $800 worth of bluetooth audio bliss but it does deliver smooth natural sound for a bluetooth speaker.
Particularly in the treble and mid range.
And it is omnidirectional.
By that, I mean it disperses 360 degree sound, much like the cylindrical UE BOOM speakers.
However, those aren't made out of organic glass.
And with this speaker, the glass serves as a tube tweeter, which gives the sound its clarity.
A two inch woofer is responsible for the mid range frequencies.
There's a passive bass radiator for the low end.
If you're looking for a speaker that plays super loud and has more oomph to its face, this isn't it.
It's really designed to play background music while blending into the decor or complementing it, and also provides some lighting.
Be great for the bedroom.
Cool stuff if you can afford it.
