the fact that today’s speaker system looks too much like a speaker could mean an interior design disaster to some. everything with respect to the interior decor is so harmonized and out pops a speaker with its pronounced black grill and the all too familiar rectangular form. depending on your aesthetic inclination, this calls for a speaker design that thinks outside the box – which is exactly what a young California-based design focused technology company, who called themselves Stellé Audio Couture (pronounced as Stel-lay), did with The Stellé Audio Pillar Bluetooth Speakers. we wouldn’t say the Audio Pillar is revolutionary, but it is one of the few Bluetooth speakers in the market with a refreshing cylindrical form factor and does away with monotonous black cloth grilles. the result is one elegant audio piece that doesn’t quite look like one and yet, function as one.
beneath its elegant silhouette is a pair of 1.5″ acoustic drivers and a 3″ subwoofer for faithful sound reproduction from any Bluetooth-enabled sources, or via the 3.5mm auxiliary input for those without. also packed within is a built-in microphone that allows the Audio Pillar to double as a handsfree speakerphone and a built-in lithium-ion battery pack offers up to 15 hours of playtime. a universal power adapter is included for recharging the unit whenever power outlet is available. the The Stellé Audio Pillar Bluetooth Speakers comes in four classy hue and finish: high gloss white, brushed aluminum, pewter, and matte black, and can be yours to own for $349 a pop. boogie past the jump for a few more look.
