With pretty much everyone having similar devices — Gartner suspected that there would be 6.4 billion connected ‘things’ in 2016 — how can you be different? Especially if you have some extra disposable income, standing out with your tech investments is usually important. Let’s take a look at a few flashy gadgets that will turn heads and ensure you’re a little different.
Priced at close to $2000, the BeoSound 2 is a large stand-up, stainless steel speaker that has sound and capabilities to boost your audio experience. Looking almost futuristic, the speaker has a number of music services built-in including Spotify, and it also connects to your smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth or AirPlay. Even cooler is that it has a multi-room functionality. By connecting to other devices in your home, you can either play different music in different rooms or have the same thing playing throughout the whole house. Besides all the extra features, at its foundation, the BeoSound has superb sound quality, with its Acoustic Lens Technology creating a 3D surround sound feel no matter where the speaker is placed. You can transfer this experience to your TV too so that your viewing experience is enhanced as well.
