OAKLAND, Calif., Aug. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- OM Audio, developers of advanced audio products enabling consumers to enjoy and connect with music like never before, today announced OM/ONE, which is the world's first levitating Bluetooth speaker. To get one delivered before the Holiday season visit www.omone.com.

OM/ONE Levitating Bluetooth Speaker Creates Gravity-Defying Listening Experience

As practical as it is eye-catching, the OM/ONE has exceptional sound quality and easily connects wirelessly to all major smartphones, tablets and computers. When detached, the hovering orb acts as a portable speaker that can be taken on the go. The built-in microphone transforms the OM/ONE into a conference room phone of unparalleled styling and fidelity.

"In a world full of speakers that look and sound the same, the OM/ONE stands out from all the rest," said David DeVillez, Founder and CEO at OM Audio. "Prior to our crowd-funding campaign we traveled Silicon Valley getting feedback from some prominent entrepreneurs and musicians and we've been very humbled by the praise we've received. We're looking forward to getting these in the hands of consumers this holiday season."

OM/ONE creator and audio engineer DeVillez was the former Director of Operations, R&D and Engineering at Velodyne Acoustics. One of his design breakthroughs is the OM/ONE levitating driver for hearing every high and low with no external distortion.

Listeners can enjoy the OM/ONE by itself or pair it with another OM/ONE for true stereo sound. It can power on/off, pair/dis-pair and answer call/hang-up with the push of a single button.

Early Reactions from Tech Entrepreneurs and World-Class Musicians

"As a music lover, I've tried out a lot of speakers and the OM/ONE stands up to the best personal speaker technology and sound out there...and it floats...in the air! Pretty cool. I bought two of them already, one for the office and one for personal use," said J Sider, Founder and CEO of BandPage.com.

"I didn't believe it until I saw it – there's something weird about walking toward a beat, only to realize that it's coming out of a rotating orb, floating in mid air. That's some cool shit. This will make a great gift," said Jack Conte, multi-instrumentalist/songwriter for the band Pomplamoose and Founder and CEO of Patreon.

"The OM/ONE is one of the coolest products I've seen on Tilt. Not only is it a Bluetooth speaker with amazing sound quality, but it levitates! Beautiful design with great sound – I can't wait for mine to arrive," said James Beshara, Co-Founder and CEO of Tilt.com.
