Ours is a world overflowing with Bluetooth speakers, all trying to set themselves apart from the growing pack. One of the latest features in that quest is buoyancy.

The Theater Box reportedly makes every spot in a room the 'sweet spot'

Ordinarily, if you want to get the 3D surround sound experience, you have to carefully set up several speakers within a room. Even then, there's one specific "sweet spot" where the effect is most pronounced. According to California-based electronics company Acemile, however, that's not the case with its new Theater Box portable wireless speaker. Just one of the speakers is reportedly capable of filling a 2,000 sq ft (186 sq m) room with 360-degree 3D surround sound, that sounds equally good from any location.  Read More

Last year's International CES (the 2014 show) was chock full of Bluetooth speakers, and one of the few that stood out from the pack was Nyne's floating, waterproof Aqua speaker. Gizmag has since had the chance to test one out and see if it truly sinks or swims.  Read More

With the Bluetooth speaker marketplace becoming increasingly crowded, designers are looking at their products from new angles to gain an edge over the competition. For Honk Kong-based startup Crazybaby, this included the speaker's underside, with the team developing a levitating Bluetooth speaker that floats above its charging station to project sound from every surface.  Read More

Last month, Gizmag reported on the Archt One (pronounced "ark-one") Kickstarter kick-off and its promise to fill a room with consistent, high quality omnidirectional sound via its warhead-shaped wireless speaker. Since then I've had the opportunity to test out a demo unit at home for a few days to see if the Archt keeps its promise.  Read More

October has been a pretty good month for streaming music lovers. Bang & Olufsen and Bowers & Wilkins have finally joined the Bluetooth speaker party, and Toronto's Mass Fidelity is proving that you don't have to be a big player to be a crowd pleaser. The folks over at Archt Audio are also hoping to make a memorable entry into the wireless speaker market with a sonic warhead known as the Archt One. This wireless audio system features a proprietary speaker technology called the Sound Array that ensures every corner of the room gets bathed in consistent quality sound.  Read More

The BeoPlay A2 is Bang & Olufsen's first portable Bluetooth speaker

Bang & Olufsen's BeoPlay A2 may have you covered in this regard, as it promises 24 hours of continuous playback from a single charge – which the firm reckons is unmatched for a speaker of its size and type.  Read More

The Core wireless speaker system from Mass Fidelity

Standing out in the already overflowing Bluetooth speaker market is not an easy task. Toronto's Mass Fidelity reckons its wireless audio thrower manages to do just that. Rather than suffering from rather disappointing mono audio performance or wasting hours of trial and error to find your listening sweet spot with a two speaker setup, The Core throws out a high quality wide stereo image from one portable little box.  Read More
