Whether you’re talking about the Harman Kardon SoundSticks or the previous iteration of the Sony Glass Sound Speaker–one of our Best Outdoor Bluetooth Speakers–there’s just something about transparent speakers that always makes them noteworthy. Unsurprisingly, Sony is taking that to the next level with their upgraded version of the Glass Sound Speaker. With up to 8 hours of battery life in Bluetooth mode and LDAC support for the transmission of high-resolution audio content, it’s still a banging outdoor speaker that delivers in every way you could imagine. But they didn’t stop there. This time around, it’s packing a 46mm speaker that provides powerful and well-balanced midrange while the organic glass tweeter delivers room-filling sound and an optimized passive radiator in the base provides clear low-end notes as well. Along with the audio performance, it also functions as ambient lighting with a candlelight function that includes 32 different levels of brightness so you can always set the perfect mood. It also works with Party Connect so you can connect up to 100 compatible Bluetooth speakers for epic events, a sleep timer so you can fall asleep and stereo pairing if you want two of these gorgeous speakers paired in separate channels.
