With its “organic glass” body and built-in candle-effect lighting, the Sony LSPX-S2 Portable Wireless Speaker has been designed to be appreciated for both looks and sound. But Sony also claims that its sound is efficient thanks to its “advanced vertical drive technology”.
Since for many of us our homes have pretty much become our lives these days, we might be more drawn to gadgets that can fit right into them – without compromising on their power or quality, of course. This is the general idea behind Sony’s LSPX-S2 glass sound wireless Bluetooth speaker.
The OEM says it was designed to be as reassuring in its aesthetics as it is in its audio prowess. To this end, it has been designed with a transparent shell in order to display a warm light source onboard. This function can support 32 levels of brightness, and also has a “candle” setting in which it flickers appropriately.
However, the shell through which the light is visible is also a functional part of the audio sound speaker. Even though it is actually made of acrylic resin (which is also an automotive or sunglasses grade material), it vibrates in response to the actuator of the LSPX-S2 in order to reproduce its sound.
Sony claims that this design choice, in addition to a tweeter also made of glass, allows “Crystal Clear” 360-degree sound. The glass wireless speaker system is also equipped with Bluetooth technology for wireless operation and NFC technology for easier pairing. It also allows control of multiple devices through a paired device through the OEM I Music Center app.

If we’re talking about the glass speakers, can’t ignore the Harman Kardon whom’s SoundSticks 4 Bluetooth Wireless Speaker (Review) is a 2.1 system set (2 left/right speakers and 1 subwoofer), following the great success of Soundsticks that have been loved and received by people for the past 20 years.
