Never heard of Bēm Wireless? Don't worry, it's our first time, too. The audio company has taken to this year's CES to show of quartet of interesting wireless speakers. First up, its $300 Speaker Trio consists of a charging base that houses three wireless speakers -- no word on whether it's inductive, though, we'd hope so for that price. The cube-shaped sound pushers have a 120 foot range in total over Bluetooth, and come in either black or white. If you like the aesthetic of the Trio but only need one for traveling, the company also offers its Mobile Speaker. The unit runs over Bluetooth, comes in a few colors and costs a cool $70.
Beyond those, Bēm is highlighting its larger Boom Box 2.1 Bluetooth system with a handle, which looks similar to Sony's NFC-loaded $99 SRS-BTM8. Sadly, it may be harder sell at $250 (if it's similar in size to Sony's), but it'll net you 10 hours of wire-free music streaming per charge. Last up in the lineup is the "juice box-sized" Outlet Speaker, priced at $99. Similar to an offering by JBL, the unit plugs directly in your power outlet, letting you stream music over Bluetooth from "up to 25 feet" away. We'll do our best to check these out on the show floor, so check out the press release past the break to find more info in the meantime.
