If Triphonic speakers are a strange concept to you, don’t feel bad, we were confused, too. A former Apple designer just invented them, and they’re supposed to offer you a whole new listening experience.
Christopher Stringer was an Apple designer for more than 20 years and worked on some of the company's most iconic products, including the first iPhone. But now, he runs his own startup called Syng, and Cell Alpha is its first promising project. We're talking about the world’s first Triphonic speaker, which benefits from a very pompous presentation.

The speaker comes with an original, spherical look. Its unusual design is meant to offer you a spatial sound and deliver clear, detailed audio. The pinpoint accuracy comes from the force-balanced configuration that allows you to spatialize the sound according to your listening room, Syng explains. The Cell Alpha lets you control the sound, magnify it or shrink it and get a surround sound effect with just one unit.

The spherical speaker is wireless and equipped with a three-horn system, three mid-range drivers, and woofers on both the bottom and top. Cell Alpha’s stand also has three built-in mics that measure the geometry of the space. There are also two USB-C ports, although the speaker is compatible with Spotify Connect and AirPlay 2 via Wi-Fi.

You’ll also be able to connect the speaker to your TV as the company will release a USB-C to HDMI cable in the foreseeable future. You can also control the Cell Alpha via the Syng Space app.

Giving its steep price, it is a good thing the Triphonic speaker has surround capabilities. A single unit goes for $1,799 if you opt for the table stand. There is also a floor stand available for purchase, but that will set you back an additional $170. You can order the speaker on Syng’s website.
