Om Audio has detailed its latest product, the Om/One. The unique orb-shaped portable speaker includes a magnetic base that allows the device to actually float and rotate in mid-air.
The Om/One speaker features a 75mm audio driver and a built-in microphone, and outputs 110 decibels with a 3 watt RMS amplifier. Likewise, users can pair two speakers together to get full stereo sound. The device offers support for Bluetooth 4.0 and has a wireless range of at least 33 feet and about 15 hours of battery life. With the included magnetic base, the speaker is capable of spinning and levitating 1.2-inches in the air (see a demonstration HERE ).
Customers can purchase an Om/One now in black or white through the company's crowdfunding campaign for $179. Later pre-orders will be $199. Orders are expected to ship in December.
