Spaced360 Bluetooth speaker is out to beat Bose and Beats

The Spaced360 is a chunky-but-portable wireless Bluetooth speaker with 360-degree sound tech, letting you put this £250 box wherever you like.

Most portable wireless speakers try to be small, but the Spaced360 has an unusual, larger-than-average body.

It uses three 2-inch drivers, each matched with a passive radiator, to provide big bass in what is still a pretty small unit.

The Spaced360 speaker weighs 1.08kg, and is 22cm in its longest dimension. It’s still pretty dinky – but you’re just not going to fit in a hangbag.

It’s a speaker primarily for the home, and it comes with a charging stand that you can rest the Spaced360 on. The battery lasts for up to eight hours.

As well as having speaker drivers that fire in different directions, the Space360 also uses airSound technology to make the sound consistent no matter where you are in the room.

It’s designed to primarily receive audio wirelessly over Bluetooth, and it supports the higher-quality aptX codec. The Spaced360 also has NFC to make sync’ing with phones and tablets quicker and easier.

However, there’s also a 3.5mm auxiliary input to handle non-wireless sources like old-school iPods.

The Spaced360 comes in black and silver colours, but there will also be a bunch of colourful rubber covers you can put on the speaker for a little more personality. There are seven bright shades, and they cost £30 each, although you get one for free when you buy direct from Spaced360.

The rubber coats don’t provide water resistance, but will make the speaker all the more resilient.

At £250 this is among the more expensive portable speakers. We’ll see how it compares to big-hitters like the Jawbone Jambox Big in our full review soon.
