Revealed at the IFA Berlin this year is the Libratone Beat, which touts itself as the world’s first high-end active speaker with wireless technology. The high quality acoustic instrument treats its listeners to an audio sweet spot by dispersing the sound in different directions providing a 360-degree experience. The system features a 30-pin transmitter that attaches to an iPod, iPhone or iPad and wirelessly streams audio to a Beat speaker up to 32.8 feet or 10m away. The wireless range of the system can be extended by the user to 98.4 feet (30m) if the user opts to connect the wireless USB transmitter to a PC or Mac. The speakers wear a somber, no-nonsense look and are handy to carry as well.
