Belkin teams up with French audio technology company Devialet for a new hi-fi smart speaker/wireless phone charger. Named the SOUNDFORM ELITE, the advanced speaker hides a lot of functionality in its compact 360 round design.
Powering the speaker is a full-range 35mm driver combined with two 70mm woofers with a vibration canceling “Push-Push” configuration — this ensures for an uninterrupted wireless charge. Devialet’s Speaker Active Matching (SAM) tech also provides high fidelity sound even in such a small speaker body.
Optimized for iPhone, Samsung, Google phones, the SOUNDFORM ELITE is also Google Assistant-enabled so multiple speakers can be synced for room-to-room music, on top of the functions from the voice-activated commands. Those interested can find the pre-order at Belkin’s online store for $299 USD.
