Estelon Extreme Loudspeakers

Estelon Extreme Loudspeakers

There are speakers, then there are loudspeakers. The Estelon Extreme are the latter. These ultimate audiophile loudspeakers are taller than LeBron James (6′ 8″), and come with a price tag only he can afford, $239,000 a pair! In addition to being 550 lbs behemoths, the Extreme’s have a unique feature that can remotely raise or lower them down to the size of Justin Bieber (5′ 9″). Other than being cool, variable height adjustments are said to help get rid of unwanted reflections from the walls and ceiling that affect the sound quality.

The Estelon Extreme loudspeakers are built as two modules. The upper module allows the speaker to be adjustable by user for optimizing the sound in regard of audience’s position and room specifics. It also isolates the high, medium and mid-bass drivers from the vibration that the lower positioned bass drivers provide.

Through the positioning of the bass drivers in lower module and the design of the cabinet, Extreme delivers a complete acoustic sphere by not breaking the sonic geometry. As a result, the company claims the listener is presented with the quality of the bass that is unheard of. Furthermore, saying the listener will be left in awe after being absorbed in seamlessly blended soundscape. With such claims I can’t wait to hear them!
