Sony wants to make your new hybrid life that consists from working in the home where you live, a bit more interesting with its latest wireless speaker, the LSPX-S2 Glass sound Speaker. The Japanese tech titan has recently made available to the global market, its unconventional glass design that takes cues from old paraffin lamps.
The gadget, a refined version of Sony’s first-generation LSPX-S1 eschews the perforated grills and meshes typically found in Sonos or JBL equivalents in favour of a lantern-like aesthetic. It features a brushed chrome base and an “organic glass” body that holds a bright LED light. This can be set to shine at 32 different levels to create the desired ambience. Opt for “candlelight mode” and the speaker will flicker just like, you guessed it, a candle for a decidedly romantic feel.
Beyond looks, Sony says the speaker “will fill every corner of the room with exceptional sound.” That’s all thanks to the brand’s Advanced Vertical Drive technology. The cylindrical centre—which is actually made from acrylic resin, not glass—apparently acts as a tweeter and vibrates after being tapped by the three actuators beneath to spread the sound vertically in a 360-degree direction. Since this tube-shaped tweeter has a wider surface area than that of conventional speakers, it creates rich sound with minimal loss of volume, according to Sony.
The LSPX-S2 offers up to eight hours of battery life and can be easily transported anywhere in the home. Furthermore, its multi-room feature lets you wirelessly connect up to 10 compatible Sony speakers and blast the same song or different tunes throughout your abode.
When it comes to connectivity, the speaker supports both Bluetooth and WiFi so you can play music via your smart devices or Spotify. It’s also fitted with a 35-mm passive subwoofer and a 3.5-mm audio jack if you’d prefer to connect via wires.
The LSPX-S2 Glass Sound Speaker is the latest in Sony’s range of “lifestyle” products that aim to please both techies and tastemakers.
