The S-Ray speaker is described as a portable directional speaker that will be demonstrated by Samsung C-Lab at CES in three wireless formats – a horseshoe-shaped neckband that pushes audio towards the ears of the wearer, a portable unit called the Handy and a smartphone cover.
As well as avoiding discomfort suffered as a result of extended earphone use, the design means that users need not be a bother to others around them, as the audio is kept within a sort of personal sound zone. This should also allow more than one directional speaker to be pumping out tunes in the same room, at the same time, without bleeding over each other.
The S-Ray examples are concepts only at the moment, with Samsung no doubt paying close attention to the reactions from public and press in Las Vegas next week to inform future production plans.
