Anniversary-edition Bowers & Wilkins Nautilus is a Pearl white finished masterpiece

Renowned British speaker manufacturer, Bowers & Wilkins, has been at the forefront of innovation and design in the audio industry. One of their most iconic creations is the Nautilus loudspeaker, which has captivated enthusiasts worldwide for good three decades now.

This year, as the Nautilus celebrates its 30th anniversary, B&W has introduced a version of the award-winning speaker with a stunning Abalone Pearl finish. Let’s dive into the world of the incredibly fashioned loudspeaker to discover the beauty and craftsmanship behind the remarkable Nautilus arriving in a mesmerizing new hue.

Designer: Bowers & Wilkins

Bowers & Wilkins founder John Bowers had a vision to create a loudspeaker that wouldn’t sound anything like an existing loudspeaker. Nautilus was an embodiment of that vision, which in its existence now is regarded as one of the most visually striking speakers on the market, and sound quality is uncompromising as well.

It’s easy to align with the fact that Nautilus’ unique design breaks away from the traditional speaker form factor yet provides an auditory experience unparalleled. To achieve exceptional sound quality, the loudspeaker was designed with a reverse-horn shape enclosure. This design style helps decrease unwanted sonic contributions and ensures accurate sound reproduction.

The 30th-anniversary edition of the Nautilus in a breathtaking Abalone Pearl makeover is not only symbolic of the traditional audio quality but the shimmering effect of the pearl finish, which adds a touch of elegance, makes this edition apart from the rest, within the company ranks or outside.

Crafting a Nautilus loudspeaker is an intricate process that requires time and precision with a great deal of detail. Each speaker shell takes an entire week to make, with an additional three days dedicated to the final polish. Reportedly, Bowers & Wilkins still adheres to the same hand-built manufacturing process used in the creation of the Nautilus 30 years ago. It is followed by the new colored Nautilus loudspeaker as well.

But if you’re interested, just hold your horses! The meticulous manufacturing process and limited production capacity make acquiring a pair of Nautilus speakers pretty challenging. The air of exclusivity and anticipation to the ownership is only possible if you’re willing to wait a year for delivery after shelling out close to $125,000 for the Abalone Pearl version of the Nautilus.

Inspired by NYC’s iconic structure, this cement gray wireless speaker is work of art that’ll elevate aesthetics of any space

There was a time when ultra-high-performance concrete speakers ruled the roost. We may have progressed in material usage since, but its appearance is yet to leave us. Built from polycarbonate composite resin, this concrete-like building is not a miniature architectural marvel, in fact, it is a wireless speaker we aesthete audiophiles would appreciate.

The speaker is inspired by New York City’s Flatiron Building’s timeless architecture. Just like the iconic structure, this speaker is dubbed TAKAHIROMIYASHITATheSoloist. Sounds. stands out with its unique triangular shape and bold lines, making it a true statement piece for any modern home or office.


Work of designer Takahiro Miyashita, the cement gray speaker measures 32cm x 46cm x 110cm and weighs good 25kg. Distinguishing the speaker from the structure, it’s inspired by, is the eroded cement finish that stands testament to the architecture’s test of time.

Beyond the appearance, the TAKAHIROMIYASHITATheSoloist. Sounds. is a 7-channel speaker designed to fill a room with rich, immersive audio that envelops the listener from all directions. To make this possible, in addition to the 7 built-in speakers are the integrated aluminum pistons and 3 x 1-inch tweeters that help create ultra-loud output of 2000W and a frequency range of 20HZ to 25 KHz.

The speaker features wireless connectivity, allowing seamless pairing with any Bluetooth 5.2 -enabled device. Wireless audio streaming is also possible with built-in True Wireless Stereo (TWS). Much like the Flatiron Building’s significance as a cultural landmark, this Miyashita designed speaker is not just a piece of audio equipment, but a work of art that elevates the aesthetics of any space. It is slated to go on sale starting early September for approximately $6793.

This see-thru directional speaker brings invisible headphones that also serve as desk decor

Open office spaces and work-from-home arrangements have made headphones almost a necessity in warding off distractions. But while they may be effective at blocking out other sounds, they can sometimes be too effective in also blocking out important sounds or, worse, important people. They can also be uncomfortable to wear over long periods of time, creating fatigue and increasing stress instead of reducing it. Loudspeakers are, of course, out of the question in the office, and they can be awkward at home, especially when you need to do video calls. Straddling the middle ground between these two extremes are these innovative invisible headphones that not only create a personal sound space but also put a beautiful piece of decoration on your desk or shelf as well.

While there is a lot of hype around Spatial Audio as the next big thing in the industry, there is another undercurrent that is trying to bridge the gap between headphones and regular speakers. The so-called invisible headphones are technically directional speakers that focus the sound within a certain field so that you’re the only one that really hears what’s going on without having to cover your ears or get tangled up with cables. You might think that Focusound is just another entry in this niche market, but it actually offers innovative features in a stylish and practical package.

Comfortable & private working place.

Home entertainment with virtual headphones.

You will immediately notice that there is almost nothing to see with Focusound, just a see-thru glass in a rectangular frame. That, however, is actually the speaker, using a composite structure of multi-layered transparent films that acts as the sound-generating unit, with the actual driver housed in an external module. This “screen” focuses the sound in a narrow beam, almost like a spotlight, delivering audio that is as clear as the speaker looks and only toward the person who is meant to be listening.

While the transparent glass speaker is already eye-catching on its own, it also serves an additional purpose. Thanks to its equally innovative Back Clips, you can clip anything on the back of that see-through material, from photos to to-do lists and anything in between. This turns the speaker into a piece of decoration that can stand anywhere at home, thanks to its simple and minimalist design. Of course, putting anything behind the glass doesn’t affect the audio coming from the directional speaker, so you can definitely have your cake and eat it too.

A rotatable back stand lets you prop up the Focusound at multiple angles, whether vertically or horizontally, giving you complete freedom of how and where you want to place the speaker. And if you combine two Focusound speakers with the same driver, you can even have a 360-degree surround sound setup that won’t bother the rest of your family when you’re enjoying a movie or a game. For only $329 for a Focusound SOLO or $419 for Focusound DUO, you can enjoy clear yet private audio anytime, without the hassles of headphones and earbuds, while also adding a bit of pizzazz to your desk with this memorable and multifunctional see-thru directional speaker.

Plug-in Bluetooth speaker brings high-quality audio anywhere there’s a power socket

Bluetooth speakers are convenient for letting almost anything connect to them without cables, but most of them still need at least one wire to connect to a power source. Battery-powered wireless speakers only give a few hours of freedom at most, and then you’re back to plugging it in, anyway. If you have plenty of power outlets within easy reach, then a better option is now available that will change the way you’ve been listening to audio at home or at work. With OC Acoustic’s new speaker, you can enjoy high-quality music, podcasts, and every enjoyable piece of audio content with a stylish speaker that plugs directly into a power socket, offering you even more freedom and flexibility than your typical wireless home speaker.

Wireless speakers have become quite popular in the past few years, and recent designs have made them stand out as beautiful pieces of home decoration. That’s almost by necessity, though, since these speakers have to take up space on tables, shelves, and countertops, space that could have otherwise been occupied by more essential or even more decorative things. What if, however, you could take out the middle man and cut off all the wires completely without worrying about battery life as well? That’s exactly what this ball-sized speaker brings to the table, or rather literally takes away from the table.

Simply put, the Newport Plug-in Bluetooth speaker is a highly accessible audio device that plugs directly into a power outlet, wherever that outlet may be. You don’t have to worry about any wires to hide because there aren’t any, and the speaker is always ready to reconnect to your device the moment you step within Bluetooth range. It hides in plain sight, but you also have the option to make it playfully stand out. Pick from four color choices to either match your decor or be a vibrant beacon of fun at parties.

Despite its size, the OC Acoustic Newport delivers powerful audio to accompany you while you do your work, get you pumped up during your workouts, or get the party going. Each speaker packs a 52mm full-range driver and a 5W RMS speaker, but if one isn’t enough, you can string as many as 50 of these together to really fill up the house. And you don’t need to feel like you’re losing a power outlet because the speaker has a built-in USB type A port to charge your phone or tablet at the same time.

You might think that you’ll be limiting yourself by having a speaker that needs to be on a power outlet directly, but those outlets don’t have to be on walls anyway. With the OC Acoustic Newport Plug-in Bluetooth Speaker, you actually have more freedom because you place it anywhere without it getting in the way. Whether you’re preparing coffee orders, running on the treadmill, or chopping veggies, you can have your music fix wherever you are, as long as there’s a socket nearby.

Sonos Era 300 Review: Spatial Audio with a Heart


  • Strong sustainability efforts

  • Excellent sound quality

  • Distinctive design

  • Easy to setup and use


  • Inconsistent spatial audio performance

  • No Google Assistant support yet

  • Single USB-C slot for both line-in and Ethernet

  • Very expensive




The Sonos Era 300 offers impressive sound quality wrapped in a unique, environment-friendly design, though its unreliable spatial audio performance makes its rather high price tag a bit harder to swallow.

There is a staggering number of wireless and smart speakers in the market today coming from numerous brands both big and small. But even before Amazon dumped the Echo on people’s tables, Sonos was already making a name for itself in the industry. With today’s confusing plethora of smart speakers, there is an urgent and critical need to stand out, and not just by looking different, though that also works for a brief period of time. Sound quality is almost a given, so the competition often turns toward new features and traits that set speakers apart. The new Sonos Era 300 has the trending Spatial Audio as its battle cry, but it’s far from being its most distinctive feature. In fact, it could even be its weak spot, so we gave it a test to check if it is truly worth its weight in gold.

Designer: Sonos


From the very first moment you lay eyes on it, you can immediately tell that the Sonos Era 300 is not your run-of-the-mill smart speaker. Most of its peers would come in simple shapes like cylinders or boxes, but the Era 300 seems to have a different form depending on which side you’re looking at. From the front, it would seem like it’s a normal oval speaker, but looking at its tapered halves from other angles makes it resemble an hourglass instead. In addition to its large size, there is no way the Era 300 won’t catch your attention, though it’s debatable whether your appreciation of its design will be favorable or not.

The shape that Sonos chose isn’t just for the sake of being visually different, though. For the designers, it’s the only shape that makes sense, given how the different drivers are arranged inside. There are two woofers, one on the left and the other on the right, and four tweeters facing up, forward, and sides. Their positions aren’t by accident, either, since each one has a specific role to play. The two woofers at the sides, for example, deliver powerful yet balanced bass, while the front-blasting tweeter takes care of vocals and high ranges. The tweeter at the top directs sound to the ceiling so that it would reflect back down to create a more believable spatial audio experience.

This extra-large Sonos speaker comes in black or white options, but it is the latter that has a more interesting story to tell. In line with its sustainability goals, the Era 300 uses 40% post-consumer recycled plastics, and those in the manufacturing industry know how the nature of the material can affect the final color. It’s difficult to hit the nearly pure white that some products have when using recycled plastics, so Sonos opted for a softer shade of white that happens to blend better with home interiors. Perhaps it’s time for the birth of a new “Responsible White” color.

It’s hard to argue that the Sonos Era 300 has a unique and quite memorable design that you won’t find on other speakers, though it’s debatable whether most will find it aesthetically pleasing. The best parts of its design, however, are the ones that you won’t see or even read about, like its sustainable design and innovative driver arrangement. Fortunately, those don’t detract from the speaker’s value as long as it actually sounds great.


The Era 300’s large size may be justified, but that doesn’t exactly make it less problematic. At 4.47kg, it’s not something you’d move around a lot anyway, but it does mean you’ll want plenty of space for it on a shelf or table. A better option would be to put it on a very minimalist stand built especially for the speaker, though that will send you back around $169 on top of the speaker’s price.

Fortunately, you won’t be juggling it around so much to use it because all of its most important functions are either on its top or accessible through a paired mobile device. There are capacitive touch controls for playing, pausing, and skipping tracks, as well as a groove made for adjusting the volume. There’s a speech bubble icon there as well for disabling the voice assistant temporarily, but if you’re really concerned about privacy, there’s a hardware switch on the speaker’s back to mute the mic.

Setting up the Sonos Era 300 is just as easy. You just need to download the Sonos app on your phone, create or log into your Sonos account, and add the detected speaker there. You’ll need to connect the app with music streaming services if you’ll be using those as well, but the process will be pretty familiar to anyone who has handled Bluetooth speakers before. Sonos also has a special fine-tuning feature called Trueplay, where it can automatically change its settings depending on where it’s located in a room. It does so by listening to its own sound output using the built-in mic, which is as easy as just letting the app run the tests. For more accurate tuning, however, there’s an “advanced” manual mode that requires walking around the room with an iPhone or an iPad.


With no less than six drivers inside, you’d expect the Era 300 to sound fantastic. Fortunately, it doesn’t disappoint. The audio coming from the speaker is nothing short of phenomenal, with loud and full sound across the board and frequencies coming out clear and distinct. With how powerful the bass comes out, those not familiar with the Era 300’s specs might presume there’d be a subwoofer hidden somewhere. The angle of the drivers definitely creates that stereo effect, though the audio industry has started moving toward another direction when it comes to surround sound.

Spatial Audio is the new hype in the industry, promising a 3D surround sound experience without the multitude of speakers. It’s still in its infancy, but the who’s who of the market are jumping at the opportunity to blaze a trail, and Sonos is no different. In fact, you could say that Spatial Audio is the headlining feature of the Era 300, or at least it’s supposed to be. In practice, it sounds like one of the speaker’s very few flaws. The experience of Spatial Audio on this large audio equipment seems to be a hit or miss, depending on what you’re playing. Sometimes, the difference from the regular stereo version is as clear as night and day; other times, it might take a true audiophile to discern the nuances. There are even some cases where the Dolby Atmos Spatial Audio version sounds a little bit worse than the original because of the larger amount of reverb. This is especially true for music remastered to be compatible with Spatial Audio, and you will have better luck with newer pieces recorded with Spatial Audio in mind right from the start.

In short, the Sonos Era 300’s key feature seems to be its weakest, but that doesn’t erase the fact that it is still a strong and solid speaker without the Spatial Audio feature. The slightly good news is that there are still too few albums and services that offer Spatial Audio, so you can keep on enjoying quality sound from the Era 300. Unfortunately, that also means you might be paying for technology that you might be using most of the time anyway, which makes the cost of the speaker feel a little too steep.

While the speaker is already powerful on its own, disregarding the Spatial Audio spiel, it can also be used in tandem with other Sonos products for an even more immersive listening experience. For example, pairing two Era 300 speakers will create an actual stereo speaker setup, though you won’t be able to control which is the left and which is the right. If you want a more traditional 7.1.4 surround sound setup, you can combine a Sonos Arc, two Sonos Era 100s in the front, and two Sonos Era 300s in the back, though that will definitely burn a hole through your wallet as well.

As a wireless speaker, the Era 300 has support for almost all possible sources, from streaming services to Bluetooth devices. As a smart speaker, you can control it using your voice via Amazon Alexa or the company’s own Sonos Voice Control. In the past, Sonos speakers supported Google Assistant as well, but recent events seem to have muddled relationships between the two. Sonos thankfully included options for wired connections, but you might have to spend extra for that capability. There is a single USB-C port on the back for external sources, but you will need a USB-C to Line-in Adapter if you want to connect a traditional 3.5mm jack. The speaker can also connect via Ethernet, but you will have to buy the Sonos Combo Adapter for that as well.


Spatial Audio might be the Era 300’s key feature, but its strongest point might be the one that buyers might never know about. More than just a revolutionary new look, the speaker represents Sonos’ strongest sustainability effort as well, and it goes beyond just using some recycled material. Of course, that’s important as well, and both black and white versions of the speaker use 40% post-consumer recycled plastics, which is still a large portion considering how few speakers today even use recycled plastics.

Sonos, however, is taking a more holistic approach to sustainability, going beyond manufacturing and shipping and stepping into the “use phase” when the speakers are already in consumers’ hands. The company takes into account the greenhouse gas emissions generated by using the speaker itself, especially when they’re left on standby. To help reduce that figure, the Sonos Era 300 and its smaller sibling, the Era 100, use less than two watts of power when idle.

The very structure of the speaker itself was made with longevity in mind, even if you can’t easily repair the speaker yourself. The speaker was made to be easily disassembled at the end of its life so that parts can be quickly sorted and reused or recycled if possible. The Era 300’s grill uses velcro to attach to the system rather than being bonded to the frame directly. This would make repairs by authorized service providers a bit easier while also making it more convenient to refurbish speakers for sale later on.

And, of course, there’s the packaging, which uses 100% recyclable materials. Such materials often get a lot of flak for their durability, but Sonos has ensured that not only is the Era 300’s box more long-lasting, but that it also looks and feels as premium as the speaker that’s lying inside. There are plenty of smart speakers littering the market today, but only the new Sonos Era speakers can proudly claim they’re designed not to litter the planet.


Getting straight to the point, the Sonos Era 300 is one expensive piece of audio equipment, though it’s not the company’s priciest product either. At $450, it sits well below the Sonos Five, which has been hailed as the speaker to beat in this family. At the same time, however, you can have two $250 Sonos Era 100 speakers to create a true stereo setup for just a little bit more. It’s always a matter of balancing the pros and cons, and, unfortunately, the scales tip slightly against the Era 300 in this aspect.

Make no mistake; the Sonos Era 300 is an excellent speaker, producing solid audio that can embrace you in rich tones on all frequencies. Its key feature, however, is Spatial Audio, and it’s the one area where the speaker doesn’t put its best foot forward, not for the lack of trying. When you consider that there are two other speakers that support this technology at half the price, you might easily feel that the Era 300 is a tad overpriced. That said, this is also Sonos’ most sustainable speaker yet, and a purchase of the Era 300 could also be seen as a sign of support for this effort.


For years, audio engineers and musicians have been trying to find ways to recreate how we naturally hear sounds but using as few speakers as possible. The latest technology to attempt that is being marketed as Spatial Audio, and the Sonos Era 300 is one of the extremely few wireless speakers that try to deliver that to music lovers and audiophiles. That technology is still in its infancy, and it definitely shows in the inconsistent performance of the speaker, depending on the kind of music and how it was made to embrace Spatial Audio.

If you manage to overlook this one major flaw and its high price tag, the Sonos Era 300 definitely meets the expectations of a powerful, high-quality stereo speaker. Its unique design is definitely eye-catching, and its ease of use is a breath of fresh air in the midst of advanced but complicated smart speakers. Sonos definitely deserves kudos for its sustainability efforts that cover manufacturing, packaging, and even “use phase” emissions. It is definitely a solid performer, which justifies the costs a little bit. It just might be ahead of its time, given how the world isn’t completely prepared for Spatial Audio just yet.

Meet the world’s first Bluetooth speaker shaped like a wine bottle, for the whimsical audiophile

What do speakers and wine have in common? Not much, but they definitely have their own groups of snobbish enthusiasts! Say hello to Dream Echo a rather eclectic-looking Bluetooth speaker beautiful enough to keep on that decorative minibar or wine rack at home. Made from oak wood and styled like a wine bottle, the Dream Echo isn’t your average wireless speaker.

Just like a well-aged fine wine has just the right notes and flavors, the Dream Echo creates the perfect balance between lows, mids, and highs, and that wooden enclosure helps give the speaker an earthy, natural sound that just pairs incredibly well with a glass of your favorite red, white, or rosé!

Robot-inspired GravaStar Supernova speaker doubles as lantern for outdoor enthusiasts

The idea of a Bluetooth speaker that doubles as a lantern for outdoorsy adventures is nothing new. But when the execution of this dual utility is outrightly unique, it calls for that perfect product that holds merit in the current gadget industry.

GravaStar who’ve surprised geeks with mecha-inspired Bluetooth speakers in the recent past have added another sci-fi speaker cum LED lamp to their line-up. Dubbed Supernova, the accessory looks like a three-legged robot, something anyone would want to sport in their geeky den.

Designer: GravaStar

The Bluetooth speaker besides looking really inviting to own, fairs well when it comes to the overall build quality, functionality, and hardware specifications. It is crafted out of a solid zinc alloy metallic body standing on GravaStar’s iconic tripod legs that we saw in their previous designs. The accessory with a 3-inch full-range speaker has 25 watts of power, 90db of output, and half-inch high-frequency tweeter for rich, crisp sound delivery.

The USP here is the transparent tubed center that beams light to double as a lantern for outdoor adventures or even indoor fun. There are three different modes of lighting, one of which emulates a flickering campfire. In the music-playing mode, this light can synch to the rhythm of the audio for partygoers.

GravaStar Supernova weighs 2.2 pounds in total and churns out approximately seven hours of playback on a single charge. Pair two Supernova speakers together and you are in for an encapsulating sound experience while listening to music, watching movies, or seeing viral content. The device has a Bluetooth range of 20 meters which should be more than enough for most users.

This accessory will definitely tick all the checkboxes for a geeky setup, given its ultra-modern sci-fi vibe highlighted by the peculiar robotic element. For a price tag of $180 Supernova is well worth the spend. If it’s already piquing your interest, the Bluetooth speaker can be pre-ordered right away, with shipping promised by April 9, 2023.

See-through Nothing speakers in Black or White will liven up any house party

Nothing and its see-through aesthetics (denoting the transparency of company values) for gadgets had the tech community all worked up before the launch of their first-ever product. But the hype turned out to be overkill.

Still, the USP of the Nothing Earbuds (1) and the follow-up Nothing Phone (1) captured everyone’s imagination. Creative beasts have been giving us a vision of prospective Nothing gadgets that could arrive in the near future, given Carl Pei revolutionizes the industry with that one winning design.

Designer: Ivan Llaneza

We’ve seen Nothing smartwatch concept and concept headphones spark our imagination, and now, a see-through portable speaker design is getting us excited. Of course, the core idea is to load the accessory with the same semi-naked DNA that’s made Nothing, what it is. To compete with the likes of Bang & Olufsen, Marshal, JBL, Bose, Anker or Sony is not going to be easy; but with stand-out design aesthetics, Nothing might just bring home the advantage.

Dubbed Nothing Bass (1), this portable speaker in Black or White color will be the perfect conversation starter for any house party. Combine this with the addition of LED lighting that synchs to the rhythm of beats, and no one will be able to keep their eyes off this gadget. The speaker’s cone touches the transparent housing, sealing everything inside off from the outside elements. Seeming just like a glass décor that elevates the feel of any living room.

The touch-sensitive volume controls on the back add another element of coolness to the Nothing Bass (1) speaker. All the other toggle elements like play/pause, next/previous track and Bluetooth pairing reside on the bottom front for easy accessibility. The speaker’s geeky personality is topped off by the big illuminated Nothing logo in cool white on one side. If only the version could have a small superimposed display with Album Art, current playing track and artist information; that’ll be the icing on the cake.

Without any doubt, such a portable speaker would be a head-turner any place, anytime. Would Carl Pei be intrigued by the idea? That’s if he has not got anything better churning up right now in his creative factory!
