Have you ever wondered what a masterful meld of minimalism and technology looks, sounds, and feels like? Transparent devices are fast becoming the latest design craze to take the tech world by storm. Hailed as both a technological marvel and a design dream come true, its striking aesthetic is both bold and understated. Paradoxical as that may sound, it is undoubtedly an accurate take on the design of the Transparent speaker. Transparent, being both the company moniker and description of the device, is a Swedish modular electronics brand based in Stockholm. The new Transparent White Speakers join a permanent collection that also houses the previous Matte Black iteration of Transparent devices.

Transparent as a company has been driven by its ethos to create simple yet functional designs that are timeless and transcend trends. The white finish complements the bold minimalist design of an aluminium casing that houses tempered glass panels that reveal perfectly designed components in congruently coloured cables. It’s an expressive yet understated aesthetic that will meld into any environment but would remain a statement piece in a room with a minimalist aesthetic. The design is not the only thing to get a refresh, as the speaker also has a 140W output with 20 – 35 Hertz frequency response and a new Digital Signal Processor chip that guarantees studio-level quality sound production with a crystal clear depth that brings listeners closer to their favourite tracks.

The quality of sound in Transparent speakers is second to none. With a 10-litre acoustic volume and custom-designed 6-inch subwoofer, the sound clarity produces allows you to hear exactly the complexity behind modern music. Don’t be afraid to turn up the party as its treble and base dials are made to crank up and get crunk.

The True Wireless pairing happens to be the icing on a very decadent cake. With this device, you can stream music through two speakers simultaneously, essentially letting you stack tracks like a studio. They even come with a Bluetooth or cable option for single or double-up use. True Wireless is also compatible with Apple Airplay, Sonos, Amazon Echo and Google Cast. You can order yours with firm-out upgrades such as 3rd party WiFi, multi-room access or even voice control. The device also comes with wall-mounting brackets to fix their position for clarity and studio-esque sound quality. The Transparent White Speaker is truly an icon of interior design and sound technology. Its willful revelation of technical components at work makes it unapologetically timeless. It’s the pinnacle of “What you see is what you get”.

The folks at Transparent are driven by a passion for music, design and simple craftsmanship. Yet, their new and revolutionary approach to home audio is taking the audio world by storm. Transparent White is designed with modularity in mind. So instead of planned obsolescence which is a scourge on the design ethos of many a tech company, Transparent is designed for the future, with new and improved components and the latest developments in wireless technology that will allow for the updating of both hardware and software. As a result, a Transparent White Speaker becomes better with age, just like fine wine.

Another brilliant addition to the Transparent collection is the Light Speaker. As its name suggests, it’s a portable glass speaker that is light in size but also contains a light and a battery life that lasts up to 10 hours.

With an ipx2 rating, the Light Speaker is perfect for any outdoor setting and has a unique modular handle that can be configured appropriately based on whatever use case or environment. You can use it at the balcony and for your bath, BBQ, or bonfire to instantly enhance the ambiance.
