Samsung’s new ‘ring’ speakers pipe sound in every direction

Samsung WAM6500 portable speaker


Samsung has tackled just about every kind of speaker you can imagine, but it hasn’t had an answer to hot-selling 360-degree speakers like the UE Boom. Well, that changes today: the Korean firm has unveiled the WAM6500 and WAM7500, its first compact one-piece speakers to promise room-filling sound. Both center around a “ring radiator” that pipes audio in every direction while supposedly striking a careful balance between bass and treble. If you ask us, though, they’re as much about the “premium” styling as anything else. The portable 6500 (above) looks like the kettle from an avant garde kitchen, while the tabletop-oriented 7500 (below) could easily double as a 31st-century desk lamp. Samsung hasn’t divulged pricing, but these fashion-forward designs will likely command a premium.

On top of this, the tech giant is expanding its Curved Soundbar range to accommodate the wider range of curved TVs it has in store. The 6000, 6500 and 8500 series join the 7500 line, and they’ll give you curvy audio for sets in sizes ranging from 45 to 78 inches. If you splurge on the 8500, you’ll also get a “wider” 9.1-channel surround sound effect courtesy of three extra speakers. There’s no word as to how much these new soundbars will cost, although history suggests that you’ll find out shortly before they ship.

Once revered for its high-fidelity home audio systems before being rebranded under the Panasonic umbrella, Technics is slated to make its anticipated return to the market next year. To kick off this welcomed resurrection, the Japanese brand will introduced two lines: a high-end reference audio line and a new premium line.

The first, the R1 series, is a flagship line of Technics that includes a stereo amplifier with their JENO (Jitter Elimination and Noise-shaping Optimization) digital engine, a noise-minimizing Network Audio Control Player, and its floorstanding SB-R1 speakers. Its premium series, the C700, will also feature a similar, albeit better three-part collection, in addition to a CD player. For a closer look at its forthcoming releases, visit

Opening Ceremony x B&O PLAY Form 2i Headphones


Today the new collaboration between Opening Ceremony and B&O PLAY was announced. The special team-up revolves around a limited edition of the iconic Form 2i headphones that were originally launched in 1985 by the iconic Danish brand. Only recently B&O PLAY re-launched the headphones with an added microphone, remote and improved comfort design.
The Opening Ceremony-designed version of Form 2i is a modern and clean take on what can truly be classified as a design icon. Today the headphones actually have a permanent place in the collection at MoMA in New York. Coming in black and in white, the headphones feature the seasonal square black/white Opening Ceremony logo that is also featured on its mainline at the moment. For the launch of the special collaborative project, Opening Ceremony and Maluca Mala produced a music video for the singer’s track “Trigger.”
The headphones take center stage in the aforementioned music video where Maluca discovers a whole new dimension to life in New York City when she puts on the pair of Form 2i and the whole city erupts in an animated color-explosion. Not only are the Opening Ceremony x B&O PLAY Form 2i headphones out now at Opening Ceremony stores in New York and London, as well as their online store, special listening stations have also been placed in both stores. Certainly worth checking out on your next store visit.
