Sony’s new Glass Sound Speaker is certainly unique in the world of Bluetooth speakers. Taking a design cue from stoners, the LSPX-S2 looks just like a bong. You have to wonder how many people will grab this by accident when they want a toke.
This is the second Sony Glass Sound Speaker, following up from the LSPX-S1 which was introduced a few years ago. This time, the speaker is a bit less bulky and has more curves, which is how you get that bong look. It also now has Hi-Res Audio support and Spotify Connect.
Obviously, Sony wants to blend the speaker into your home decor, which really works if you have bongs lying around and you want some romantic illumination with some good tunes. The speaker packs Sony’s Advanced Vertical Drive technology, which allows the speaker to reproduce 360-degree sound. In addition to its sound, it lights up with two Candlelight modes, and 32 steps of brightness.
It has a 35 mm mid-range driver, passive radiator, 11w peak output, built-in Wi-Fi, DLNA support, LDAC audio coding technology, pairing via Bluetooth or NFC One-Touch, Push & Play function (Spotify Connect), wireless multi-room support, and a rechargeable battery that lasts up to 8 hours per charge. I bet your bong can’t do all that.
