Sony’s New All Glass Bluetooth Speaker

Last year at CES, Sony showed off its Symphonic Light speaker, a gorgeous speaker made out of glass. Reminiscent of a lantern, Sony offered few details about the product. Now that speaker is back with a new name — the Glass Sound Speaker — and will hit the market next month as a wireless Bluetooth speaker.

The Glass Sound Speaker is the latest gadget from Sony’s Life Space UX project, which designs and produces high-end tech products that can seamlessly blend in with your home, and it’s one of the most beautiful Bluetooth speakers we’ve seen in some time. Utilizing a handful of dimmable LEDs, the Glass Sound Speaker gives off a muted glow similar to a standard table lantern, albeit with a few more tricks up its sleeve.

Price & Release Date For The Glass Speaker

Sony hasn’t announced a price for the Glass Speaker but a representative at CES said it would be “very affordable.” It will be available in the spring in North America.

The company also launched what it says is the world’s smallest Hi-Res Audio speaker. Hi-Res Audio is a family of high-definition audio formats and this speaker will cover a frequency range much wider than is typical. See more pictures at PC World.
