While there is definitely a ceiling to the sound quality these spheres can produce, there's still a pretty wide range in quality from one model to the next, with offerings like the Plox Official Death Star and the Infinity Orb Magnetic UFO providing slightly better dynamic range than the rest of the pack. Wattage plays a big role here, as well, since the size of these items and the amount of space required for their magnets and batteries limits output to a degree. Something like the Infinity Orb Portable Football, for example, starts to feel more like a novelty item when you see that its speaker only runs at three watts, less than even modestly priced computer speakers.
If sound quality is the most important thing to you, we suggest you take a look at our special honors section, where you'll find the Mars By Crazybaby, which places speakers in both its floating orb and its magnetic base, increasing both the maximum volume and the frequency response offered, with better bass performance and clearer highs than you're liable to see elsewhere, as well as an equalizer you can use to fine tune its signal.
Mars By Crazybaby Audiophiles who still want to experience the visual appeal of a floating system can get a little better sound quality from this model than the bulk of the market's offerings. It places a small speaker inside its levitating apparatus like the rest, but it also houses a larger speaker in its base, allowing for a much better dynamic range. A company app allows you to control it, and even set its equalization pattern. crazybaby.com
