Have you tried everything from counting sheep, doing selfies, sleeping pills, milk and cookies and still can’t go to sleep? Why not try LG’s Levitating Speakers to try and lull you to sleep. LG is the newest manufacturer adding to this range, showing off this new Bluetooth device before Consumer Electronics Show (CES) next month.

While other levitating speakers looked like clouds, evil soccer balls, or UFOs (unidentified flying objects), this one looks more like a hospital device. It has a functional off-white color scheme, a chunky unit base, and a variety of control options on the speaker itself. The levitation is achieved through the use of electromagnets. These powerful units support an omnidirectional speaker that features Dual Passive Radiator technology for “flush mid-range tones and crisp highs.”
Bass is handled by the base unit, this serves as a subwoofer. This one also doubles up as a charger. Once the hovering speaker has consumed its 10-hour battery life, it will descend slowly onto the base for charging. The speaker will continue to play audio while it’s charging. LG hasn’t given the date of release or pricing info for the Levitating Portable Speaker. However, the company will be showing off the device at the CES next week per theverge.com.

LG recently announced the release of LG Tone Studio. It’s a vibrating plastic neckband capable of blasting surround sound up at the user’s ears and looks like a horseshoe from a sci-fi flick. It also showed off its LG Tone Free, which is a wireless set of neckbuds. It can store and charge the earbuds when not in use.
Previous LG neckbud models have emphasized fitness, thus including wires to help keep track of your earbuds, just in case they slip out during an intense workout. But with wireless Tone Free, you’re back to getting down on your knees when they come off during a run.
On the other hand, LG Tone Studio has four speakers and vibrate function. So it offers a “theater-like sound for a cinematic experience wherever you may be.” Right now LG has yet to provide release dates and pricing but just like the levitating speakers, they plan to show them off at CES next week.
