Iron Man Mark XLIII 1/1th Scale Bluetooth Speaker (Limited Edition)

iron_man_life_size_helmet_bluetooth_speaker_by_brando_1

You’re looking at a Bluetooth speaker that’s shaped like Iron Man’s head. Or more like his mask. It streams music through Bluetooth, but also can connect to a USB flash drive or a 3.5mm audio jack. It has two 40mm 3W midrange drivers and an 82mm 15W woofer, which should be enough to get decent sound out of it. It won’t do anything to quell people’s strange looks as they notice you with a decapitated Iron Man, but that shouldn’t deter you. And much like the floating Iron Man suit we wrote about in January, it’s pretty expensive at $449. But hey, it does look legitimately kind of cool so if money’s no object, know it’ll ship around the end of May.

Deal Of The Day: 2% Off On OM/ONE Levitating Bluetooth Speaker

OM:ONE-speaker

That’s not much of a deal, is it? Look, we don’t decide the size of the rebate, but we do get to tell you about it, so here we are about the OM/ONE Levitating Bluetooth Speaker. Despite the paltry deal, you’re still looking at an unusual product that’s cool enough to want to purchase at almost-full price. I mean, who do you know that has a speaker that floats? This ball shaped speaker is able to project sound at up to 105 decibels with a 3 watt RMS amplifier, for up to 18 hours on a charge. It’ll stream music from your Bluetooth-enabled device, and can double as a speaker-phone given that it has an integrated mic. It’s normally $199, but our deal shaves a cool $4 off that price.

The Mars Levitating Speaker

Mars-Levitating-Speaker

This isn’t the first levitating speaker we’ve come across, but it sure it the nicest looking one. And aside from its looks, it also apparently sports a full subwoofer which, thanks to its levitating design, will radiate 360 degrees unlike regular speakers. Seeing as it isn’t connected with a cable, the battery will run you about 8 hours of playback time, after which he speaker will simply come back down to charge. There’s no word on price or availability, but a crowdfunding campaign will launch soon and you can sign up to be notified when that happens.

SoundFreaq makes some pretty cool speakers, like the DoubleSpot Bluetooth speaker we featured last month. But this time we’re looking at something slightly different. It’s the Pocket Kick speaker. It’s small, yet rocks a big sound:

It features a pair of custom-engineered drivers and a passive radiator which is set between two full-metal, open air grills to optimize airflow and project full-frequency sound with lower frequencies kicked out the back.

With 10+ hours of battery life, a tiny 5.9” x 2.5” x 1.2” footprint and a $75 price tag, it’s hard not to like it. Toss it in a bag, a pocket, and carry the party anywhere you go.

ClearView’s Clio Transparent Speaker Looks Stylish In Any Room

ClearView-CLIO-Wireless-Invisible-Speaker-3

You gotta class up your digs, y’know? And we think that ClearView’s Clio will make just about any living area look just a bit nicer thanks to its attractive transparent design. That’s right, you’re looking at an “invisible speaker” featuring an “ultra-thin, transparent, and gracefully curved acrylic glass membrane.” An added benefit of this construction is that it produces sound in both directions, thanks to its “Edge Motion®-driven speakers [which] use piezo-electric actuators to stimulate both sides of an optically clear acrylic glass stereo transducer to produce an extremely efficient, piston-like motion.” The device will accept streamed music from a Bluetooth enabled device, and features a 2-inch woofer for some bass reproduction. It’s $349 and comes in three hues.

Concept Speaker Sticks To Your Window, Cancels Outside Noise

sono-diagram

You’re probably all familiar with noise-canceling headphones, like those from Bose. They work by listening to ambient noise, and generating an inverse wave to cancel as much of it as they can. It works reasonably well. And now you could bring the same principle inside the home, to silence passing traffic and other outdoors noise. The concept is called Sono, and consists of a stick-on device that you apply to your windows. It then listens to what’s happening outside and uses your entire window as a speaker to cancel that noise out. It’s a brilliant idea and we’re a little sad that it hasn’t been turned into a product you can purchase yet. As it stands, it’s a finalist for a James Dyson Award and if the stars align, you might one day be able to enjoy peace and quiet at home, even if you home happens to be built right on top of an interstate.

Timbre: They’re More Than Just Glass Bowls–They’re Actually Speakers

Glass Bowl Speakers

“What’s a bunch of glass bowls doing in the game room?”, someone might ask.
“Those aren’t just bowls,” you might answer. “That’s actually a speaker.”

That’s a hypothetical conversation that you might have with someone if: (a) you actually had the Timbre Speakers and (b) if you actually had a game room. These unusual speakers were created by designer Casey Lin and they’re obviously unlike your typical speakers.

All the electronic components are hidden from view inside the box, including the surface transducers that vibrate the box, in effect turning it into the actual speaker. The glass bowls, which are set on top of the box, are instrumental in the design as well, since they amplify the sound from the box and function as physical equalizers, too.
