Sony has debuted the LSPX-S3 as the latest in its line of Glass Sound Speakers. Like its predecessors, it can blend "seamlessly" into any home's decor due to its ability to mimic a lamp with its candle-effect LEDs, visible through its transparent tweeter. This sleek wireless accessory has a recommended price of US$350.

Sony has designed its Glass Sound Speakers for compatibility with any user's home, regardless of its overall techy-ness. This is due to their design, carried through from the LSPX-S2 in that it has a classic lamp-like base supporting a narrow glass tube, which in fact also functions as part of the audio accessory's business end.

In the case of the latest generation, the "high-quality metal" base is finished in a "mineral silver" color with a "satin" texture. The glass fixture is, as before, a tweeter that vibrates in order to reproduce a "clear and powerful" high end thanks to 3 in-built Advanced Vertical Drive actuators.

Sony asserts that this adaptation results in 360-degree sound in that range. Otherwise, the LSPX-S3 conceals a 46mm driver for mids and a passive, "Bass Boost"-enhanced radiator. The 2021 Glass Sound Speaker also supports Bluetooth with LDAC for wireless audio, which it can do for up to 8 hours per USB type C-powered charge, as well as stereo pairing in the event the user has bought 2 with which to ornament their room.

On that note, the LSPX-S3 reprises its series' party trick, which involves the LED array capable of shining through its organic glass tweeter. They are rated for 32 levels of brightness, adjustable via touch sensor. Alternatively, the user can have them on automatic pulse mode in response to the audio played, or set it to "candlelight" mode.

Sony has launched this elegant new audio device at an RRP of US$349.99, and will release it from August 2021.
