Looking for a Bluetooth speaker? Ask the Orb.

Sony Ericsson just announced the MBS-100, a crazy orb-like speaker designed to play music wirelessly from Bluetooth-enabled cell phones and MP3 players.

The rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery boasts five hours of playback, says Wired. It also can hang on standby for 50. The company says it’s also perfect for sharing your music at home or the office. Thankfully not everyone will need to endure your taste in music though; the unit only packs 1.5 of power. 

There’s no word on pricing for the MBS-100 just yet, but it’s expected to arrive just in time to perfectly stuff your holiday stocking.
