Tranquil Moments Bedside & Sleep Sounds Bluetooth Speaker Review

The market is saturated with many types of Bluetooth speakers, but Brookstone’s Tranquil Moments Bedside Speaker & Sleep Sounds offers something unique. The portable device comes with preloaded sounds to help its owner sleep and relax, and as someone who suffers from Tinnitus at an early age, I am always on the prowl for something to help me doze off quicker. With that in mind, I am putting the Tranquil Moments speaker to the test.

Mars Bluetooth speaker levitates like a tiny UFO

Mars Bluetooth speaker levitates like a tiny UFO

Remember the Om/One levitating speaker? It now has a UFO-shaped competitor fittingly called the Mars levitating speaker. Mars is promised to provide 360-degree sound projection due to its shape and levitating nature. A subwoofer charging station is positioned below the floating speaker -- called the "craft" -- and is complemented by an integrated microphone for taking calls. Perhaps with a hint of humor, the maker notes its Mars speaker is made with aircraft-grade aluminum.

Philips Spotify multiroom speakers take on Sonos

Philips Spotify multiroom speakers take on Sonos

Sonos has found itself a new rival, with Philips jumping onboard the Spotify Connect train with a pair of new multi-room speakers for the streaming music service. The Philips Spotify SW700M and SW750M can either be grouped together for the same music in multiple rooms - useful if you're having a party, for instance - or each play different tracks to suit each individual listener. While they may be cheaper than Sonos, however, there are a few limitations to bear in mind all the same.

Ohm Bluetooth Speaker doubles as wireless charger

Ohm Bluetooth Speaker doubles as wireless charger

Joining its recent slew of new products comes a new audio device from Quirky, the Ohm Bluetooth Speaker. The unit won't be shipping until December 10, but interested parties can pre-order it now from the company's website for $169.99 USD. As far as speakers go, the Ohm isn't terribly notable -- what sets it apart is the base, which includes a wireless charger to power up any device that supports Qi charging units. There's a USB cable to join it, something expected considering many devices still don't support wireless charging, as well as an integrated battery for portable use.

Archt One wireless audio system produces 360-degree sound

Archt One wireless audio system produces 360-degree sound

Most wireless speakers have something in common in that they are only able to produce sound that travels in one direction. You have to be in front of the speakers to get the most benefit and best audio quality. There are a few speakers that are designed to produce a 360-degree soundscape allowing you to get optimum sound anywhere in a room, no matter where the speaker is positioned. Those omnidirectional speakers allow everyone in a room to get the best audio quality possible.

MartinLogan’s Neolith speaker takes music to the next level

MartinLogan’s Neolith speaker takes music to the next level

MartinLogan has introduced its new Neolith speaker, and it's a doozy. With the Neolith comes the maker's biggest electrostatic radiating surface to date and the promise of producing "living sound". The speaker is notable for many reasons, not the least of which is its modern, nearly minimalist, design. The speaker is said to be the by-product of three years of development, and it'll be making its public debut via the maker's Truth in Sound Tour kicking off tomorrow. While you'd be hard-pressed to find fault with the device, there's one big sticking point: prices start at $80,000 USD for a pair.
