Beyerdynamic has launched a hands-free take on the speakerphone, the Space speaker.

Hailed as a ‘personal speakerphone’, the product features Bluetooth 5 support and a 1.5-in driver with two passive radiators, as well as four microphones for accurate 360-degree voice pickup, making it suitable for both home and office use.

The compact, puck-like device boasts a 20-hour battery life and a USB-C charger that takes 2.5 hours to become fully-charged. Drawing on Beyerdynamic’s experience in microphone technologies, the Space makes use of the company’s ‘360° Smart Mic Technology’.

This new feature is not only key to cancelling out background noises so you can enjoy crystal clear conference calls and Zoom meetings on the fly. It also allows up to six participants to make use of the Space at any given time through Siri and Google Assistant.

Aside from portability, the speaker includes music and voice modes and is designed to automatically switch between the two without user input. It is able to connect to your computer or another playback device via Bluetooth or USB, should you wish to pair two Spaces for a richer stereo sound.

The Space speaker is available in nordic grey, aquamarine or charcoal colourways, and is clad in an antibacterial textile jacket with a matte speaker case. With a sleek LED control panel, function buttons are clearly labelled on a ring on top of the device.

Each purchase includes a drawstring travel bag, USB-C to USB-C cable and USB-C to USB-A adapter in the box. For those concerned about replacements, parts such as cables, components and even the battery can be purchased and refitted.

The Beyerdynamic Space is now available for $179 / £169 / €179.
