OM/ONE Levitating Bluetooth Speaker

Wizardry! I command thee to rise and float and produce those magical “sounds” from within your devil belly! Is what a 17th century time traveler would say upon seeing the OM/ONE Levitating Bluetooth Speaker ($179). Om Audio proclaims it the world’s first levitating speaker and if my name isn’t Jebediah, then this isn’t the coolest thing ever. 15 hours of playtime, 10 watt sounds from a 3 watt speaker and you can just grab the floating orb and take it with you when you want. Burn it! BURN IT A THE STAKE! Mmm…steak.

Vifa Wireless Speakers Another Great Design From The Danes

Vifa has been developing speaker systems for high-end brands for over 80 years. Now, the Danish company has gone from understudy to main actor with its own line of wireless speakers. Each will be named after certain Nordic capitals. The first, the Copenhagen, comes wrapped in fabric from Kvadrat, a famous European textile manufacturer. The exterior houses a matte-colored aluminum housing. Each speaker comes with Bluetooth connectivity, Apple AirPlay, embroidered volume buttons and six different color selections.

HiddenRadio2 Produces Magical Sounds

Bluetooth speakers have saturated the market, so it’s even more important for designs to stand out. The HiddenRadio2 ($149) has a couple of things going for it. It’s got rounded corners. iPads have rounded corners. Babies are also round. People like babies and iPads, therefore people like rounded things. Is that how logic works? Also, push a button on the unit or your smartphone and the cover magically raises revealing the speaker underneath. At that point, you can ‘hear’ or ‘listen’ to whatever’s coming out. Hearing and listening, you like that too, don’t you?

HTC BoomBass: Nice Cube

The HTC BoomBass is a Bluetooth speaker that really wants to make out with your smartphone. This mighty mite fits in your hand and doubles as a reclining smartphone stand, so your precious phone won’t get lonely when your need to hold a beer or a babe or a… um… bratwurst? I dunno. It’s got that hip new NFC action, so you can tap it with your HTC phone and get the party started faster than Amanda Johnson in the 10th grade.

“Move” by NudeAudio: This Speaker Likes It Rough

NudeAudio’s new wireless Bluetooth speaker is promising something that’s rarely found elsewhere in the market: a desire to be treated rough. Not Lifetime-movie-rough, but the “Move” speaker (smallest size starts at $30) is more than ready to be tossed into your bag, flipped over to your friend, and maybe even dropped by that clumsy friend–all without missing a beat. Thick kitchen-grade silicone encases the speaker, making the “Move” the second sexiest silicone-stuffed thing to get your mitts on.

P.A.C.O. Bluetooth Speaker: Crank Up The Concrete

P.A.C.O. is more than just a potentially awesome name for your pet hamster, it’s also the name of a new Bluetooth speaker made from… concrete. Concrete and harmonic wood, to be precise. What does this mean for you? Well besides making it the ultimate portable audio solution for a construction site, the two materials also promise to give deeper bass and better treble. P.A.C.O. can also be controlled with hand gestures–some of which are also very popular on construction sites.

Marshall Mini Amp Bluetooth Speakers: Tight Genes

Bluetooth speakers come a dime a dozen these days, but when you have the Marshall logo emblazoned on your mini amp, you know you’ve got something special—even more special than that catchy Five Guys burger review. The Stanmore’s ($400) classic design will take you back to Elvis, but the audio quality has absolutely nothing in common with peanut butter and banana sandwiches. We’re talking crisp and clean music at any volume. Rock your jailhouse via Bluetooth, RCA input, or the 3.5mm auxiliary input.

boomBOTTLE: Cuz Water’s For Wussies

You know what would go great in that wattle bottle cage on your bicycle? Not a plastic water bottle. Come on, that’s so 90s. I was thinking a wireless Bluetooth speaker. boomBOTTLE ($150) fits perfectly in that space, and when water finds out its been replaced and comes looking for revenge, don’t worry: boomBOTTLE is weatherproof. Dual 40mm drivers and a passive subwoofer push your tunes out through the Omni-directional speaker, sending music in all directions. The integrated music controls let you handle the basics, and the rechargeable lithium polymer battery does its thing for up to 10 hours.
