This 360-Degree Hi-Fi Speaker Uses State-Of-The-Art Spatial Audio Technology

After Apple’s HomePod failed to gain much traction, a handful of the team behind the smart home speaker has branched out to form Syng, a new Los Angeles-based audio hardware startup focusing on the utilization of spatial audio technology.

Known as the “Cell Alpha,” this cutting-edge home speaker features dual subwoofers, a trio of tweeters and mid-drivers, as well as three microphones that enable the speaker to automatically tune itself based on the room’s shape and acoustics. When three of these Hi-Fi speakers are used in tandem, the California company says the setup is not only capable of replicating the sound of a 7.1 channel audio system, but can also offer “the most immersive listening experience of all time.” Looking a bit like an oversized version of one of Jabba’s TT-8L/Y7 gatekeeper droids, the speaker weighs almost 13lbs, measures just shy of a foot in height and diameter, and is sold with a variety of stands, each ranging in height. Priced at $1,500 each, the Syng Cell Alpha Speaker is currently available now for preorder, with shipping scheduled to commence in the Spring of 2021.

Purchase: $1,500+
