Speakers come in all shapes, sizes and sounds. However, DBEST is putting a little twist on its tabletop Transformative speaker—literally.

The new Transformative Bluetooth HiFi System looks like a snake, a donut, or an S-shaped speaker. Basically, it can be whatever you want it to be. It features a super-cool convertible design that lets you tweak the speaker into dozens of different shapes to complement your mood and environment. That’s accomplished via the speaker’s two “flexible” outer sections, which can rotate up to 180 degrees.

Another nice perk is that it promises to fill your room with sound, via two precision-engineered loudspeakers, a microSD slot, a built-in microphone, a 3.5mm auxiliary port and two-way Bluetooth connectivity. Stream music wirelessly using any Bluetooth-capable device, or hardwire a little something via the auxiliary port. It can be used for music or as a speakerphone.

Promising up to 50 hours of cord-free music via a built-in rechargeable battery, the Transformative also has an on-board OLED display for displaying caller ID, song information, and more. Other features include a frequency range of 180Hz-20KHz and a mini USB input, as well as included accessories like a travel pouch, a 3.5mm auxiliary cable and a USB cable.

The London-based manufacturer is selling the Transformative now, via retailers like Amazon. It comes with a matte black finish and a $249 MSRP.
