Thanos may have the Infinity Gauntlet to rule the universe (well, more like threatening the universe to submission), but in this alternate dimension to the Mad Titan’s, the Infinity Gauntlet is not for intimidating the galaxy. It is a collectible, a pretty sick wearable toy (there’s even a wearable plush!), and now, a Bluetooth speaker. Coming from Hong Kong-based Bluetooth speaker specialist Camino Audio is the Avengers Infinity Gauntlet Life-size Bluetooth HiFi System.
The product pretty much say what it is. It is a full-fledged Bluetooth speaker with supposedly HiFi quality sound in the guise of an Infinity Gauntlet. Not a lot is known about what goes under the hood of this sure-to-be-awesome Bluetooth speaker. All we know is, there will be two versions: a poly (basically, plastic) version and a hefty bronze version, and they are huge!
Coming in at a cool 778 x 454 x 743 mm (30.625 x 17.875 x 29.95 inches), the poly version weighs in at 18.85 kilos (41.55 lbs) and the bronze variety tips the scale at a weighty 23.855 kilos (52.28 lbs). No words on the driver(s) within. Neither is the associated circuitry known. However, from the product images available to us, we gathered that the gauntlet will be on its side on an integrated stand and it will have light-up functionality on the space stones.
Obviously, it is not a wearable. Word has it that it will cost a bank-breaking 11,999 Hong Kong dollars (around US$1,529) for the plastic version and an insane 19,999 Hong Kong dollars (approximately $2,549) for the bronze model. Ouch, that’s kind of pricey for a Bluetooth speaker, ain’t it? For that kind money, it’s better sound as good as (if not better than…) any audiophile-grade rig. Then again, how good can Bluetooth transmission be, right?
If you are feeling the pinch, Camino Audio has a smaller Infinity Gauntlet Bluetooth speaker too. Measuring 250 mm in length (or tall, since it is standing as opposed to on its side), the Avengers Infinity Gauntlet Mini Bluetooth Speaker weights in at just 500g (1.1 lbs), boasts a large 70mm driver and puts out 5W (RMS) of audio power. Not a lot of grunt, I must say. There’s no mention of built-in amplifier or have any form of low frequency boost, so we are going to assume that it does not have any.
From the images, it is hard to tell if the stones do have light up functionality. Other details of the mini Bluetooth speaker includes Bluetooth connectivity with support for both BT profile and A2DP, a 3.5 mm audio input and some which don’t quite understand that says “supported platforms for wireless audio.” Whatever it is, one thing is for sure is, it will not cost thousands like the life-size example. Also coming soon are Avengers: Infinity War Iron Spider-Man Life-size Bluetooth speaker, Marvel Black Panther Life-size Bluetooth speaker, as well as mini version of it.
