* iHome speakers in different shapes and sizes
* Chameleon colors and clear sound quality
* Wireless Bluetooth music streaming
These top iHome speakers give you a taste of synesthesia with their color changing nature and rich sound quality. Synesthesia is a mysterious phenomenon in which you might “hear” colors or “see” sounds. Some synaesthetes even associate textures with words or sounds, or they might perceive the “taste” of an image.
Of course, as language attests, some degree of synesthesia is quite common, and maybe even universal: our ways of describing music and sound are full of words borrowed from the emotions and the other senses. We have “warm” bass, “cold” dissonance and most producers know what you mean when you say a “sparkly” synth sound. Synesthesia is apparently associated with increased creativity, too.
So bring some sensory overflow into your home audio program and summon inspiration, whether it’s for a work project or a house party, with these iHome color changing speakers. At the very least, they’ll make for a great conversation starter at your next party or gathering, as these wireless speakers not only deliver decent sound, they’ll deliver a dazzling light show as well.
