UFO or Levitating Speaker? – Let’s identify some

So I was hanging out online and I ran across an interesting item. My Home Stereo mostly contains articles dealing with home audio systems but every once in a while we find something interesting that won’t necessarily be a part of your home stereo or theater system. This is one of those times. A picture of this thing came across my screen and it looked like a UFO. Technically it was because I hadn’t identified it yet and it appeared to be flying. It actually wasn’t flying though, but had a levitating orb above a saucer shape base with cool lights. Was this the latest UFO sighting? No it was a speaker. A speaker? Yep, to be exact it was magnetic levitating Bluetooth speaker. Well that looked cool. Are these things any good? I decided to do some research and found there are a number of these speakers available. Let’s take a look at a number of these speakers and see what they are all about.

Infinity Orb

Infinity Orb Levitating Speaker

The Infinity Orb Magnetic Levitating speaker has great LED visuals. This is actually the first one I saw and really liked how it looked. With the visuals you’ll get an entertaining light show that responds to the music and you can choose the color and mode. It also has a 3D surround sound effect with a good volume that will envelop all the listeners.

Even though it doesn’t have wireless charging, it can be re-charged with the USB chord in less than an hour. Also, this is one of the levitating orbs that will float even if the surface isn’t completely level since it does have support legs for additional stability.

Overall the Infinity Orb Magnetic speaker is one of the best levitating orb speaker models in its price range.

Features

  • Great LED visuals
  • Can be a standalone speaker
  • 3D surround sound
  • Uses Bluetooth 4.0
  • 10-meter wireless range
  • 8 hour play time
  • 3W power

7 Arc Star Floating Speaker

7 Arc Star Floating Speaker

The Arc Star Floating Speaker is a great looking speaker. It has a built-in magnet so it remains floating even when it is turned off. This speaker has a surprisingly good sound quality but not the most power so if you like your music on full blast this one might not meet your needs.

As far as playtime, with the on-board 1500 mAh lithium-ion battery, this speaker will last up to 10 hours without a re-charge. Also, with its own charging station it can be charged wirelessly and will charge other devices as well as long as they support wireless charging. You can also charge this speaker while it is floating and working at the same time. This is different from many other floating speakers.
