Exotic audiophile speakers reach Hammacher-Schlemmer

OhEocha Speakers

Specialty online retailer Hammacher-Schlemmer today announced the O'hEocha Audiophile's Speakers. The two-piece set is created by ex-BMW designer Aonghus O'hEocha with the intention of creating an ideal soundstage for music and does so by separating each frequency range. The 11-inch subwoofer in each satellite faces downwards to maximize its power and avoid transfering too much distortion to the ground; in turn, the mid-range drivers are lifted above the subwoofers to cut back on resonance, as are the one-inch tweeters that sit in isolated pods at the very top of the satellites. The entire shell of the speaker set is made of aluminum and steel that stiffens the body and reduces vibration, O'hEocha explains.

Hammacher has officially released the Irish-made speakers today at a price of $8,995, though the online store notes that the speakers' popularity has already forced them out of stock. [via Crave]
