Belkin & Devialet Come Together To Craft A Qi-Charging Hi-Fi Smart Speaker

Belkin has built a reputation as the subjective king of aftermarket tech accessorization, and as they break cover for a new generation of enhanced properties, so too does the company’s unlikely partnership with French audio extraordinaire, Devialet.

For those who find that pairing their Bluetooth (and Qi) enabled devices to a plethora of different chargers, speaker systems, and entertainment centers can be a pain, Belkin’s newest project, the Soundform Elite Speaker, presents the ever-elusive idea of uniformity. This compact, in-home device marries the worlds of integrated wireless charging, hi-fi tuning, and smart capabilities to make something that’s decidedly bland, into something much more novel, calling upon a thoughtfully-designed charging cradle to reduce vibration, Devialet-derived acoustics/Speaker Active Matching (SAM) technology for unparalleled fidelity, and compatibility with Google Assistant for those moments when hands-on delegation just isn’t an option. You can grab the newest collaborative piece on Belkin’s website for $300.
