Awhile ago, Audyssey came out with some Media Speakers, which experienced some success. Now the company has introduced new Wireless Speakers featuring redesigned drivers and Bluetooth functionality. The pair runs $250, and each are loaded with two .75-inch tweeters, a pair of three-inch woofers and a pair of four-inch passive bass radiators, all of which are facilitated by Audyssey’s BassXT, EQ and Dynamic EQ DSPs.
The Audyssey Wireless Speakers have a push-in knob on the right speaker, which lets you switch the power on and change the volume, while a 3.5mm jack up front allows for headphones to be plugged in. There’s also another 3.5mm jack on the back for plugging straight into a sound source. There’s also a Bluetooth syncing button with an indicator light, along with connections for power and traditional speaker wires to hook it up with the Left monitor.
According to reports, they sound great, and the Bluetooth connectivity doesn’t diminish sound integrity. Bass is full and doesn’t vibrate, and mid and high ranges sound smooth and crisp. At $250, they’re a bit salty, but offer about as full of a sound quality as you can get for their size. The Audyssey Wireless Speakers are scheduled to hit shelves on August 29th. We’ll have a full review once we get our hands on a pair.

FULL PRESS RELEASE
Audyssey Announces New Wireless Speakers
Stream from Nearly Any Bluetooth-enabled Device
LOS ANGELES, CA – (Marketwire – August 22, 2012) – Audyssey, a leader in audio technology for the home, automotive, mobile and theater markets, today announced the Audyssey Wireless Speakers. The new speakers use Audyssey EQ for precisely tuned stereo imaging and a truly immersive listening experience. Audyssey BassXT provides deep bass for a full, rich sound. And the integrated Bluetooth capabilities let users stream music wirelessly from Bluetooth-enabled mobile phones, tablets or computers.
“The future of audio is wireless,” said Andrew Turner, Audyssey’s head of product
development, “and when creating our latest speakers we paid attention to users’ habits while
they are listening to music and other media. Whether listening from smartphones, tablets or
computers, streaming Netflix, YouTube or Hulu, the Audyssey Wireless Speakers offer not only convenience, but also the industry-leading sound quality that Audyssey has established.”
Bluetooth enjoys near-universal adoption throughout the consumer market and Audyssey’s
new Wireless Speakers satisfy the demand for high-quality Bluetooth speakers. The new
speakers are powered by Audyssey’s award-winning audio technologies: Audyssey BassXT,
Audyssey EQ and Audyssey Dynamic EQ to provide better sound than comparably sized
speakers. BassXT pushes the speakers’ two passive bass radiators for deeper notes. Audyssey EQ accounts for common acoustical distortions that other speakers fall victim to, keeping clear and balanced audio in all situations. And Audyssey Dynamic EQ makes continuous adjustments to account for the way humans hear at different volume levels.
The Audyssey Wireless Speakers will carry an MSRP of $299 and will be available in the United States and Japan on August 29. Australia, Europe, South America and the rest of Asia can expect to see the speakers on shelves later in September.
