Samsung have never made any secrets about wanting to take over the technology world and the latest step on their path is the creation and sale of speakers. In their sights are Sonos’ wireless speaker setups, which have proved to be extremely popular worldwide.
Samsung have announced three new wireless speakers, which are 360-degree audio devices that opt for a stranger shape than you’d expect from a multi-room speaker. The units, called the R5, R3 and R1 respectively, were demonstrated at IFA in Berlin this month and the reception has been quite positive.
Tech website Engadget got an up-close look at the speakers, comparing them to Sonos’ units in terms of estimated pricing. The sound quality… that requires a slightly longer look but first impressions are quite positive. We’re looking forward to seeing more of these in future.
