This cute, minimalist accessory plugs into the headphone jack so you can listen to your music on-the-go.
Ballo is a spherical speaker that can be plugged into your headphone jack and placed anywhere to listen to your tunes. It was created by the Swiss design studio Bernhard | Burkard, which was established in 2010 by Fabian Bernhard and Thomas Burkard.
Designed for the Hong Kong-based brand OYO – Objects You Obsess, Ballo provides massive sound for such a small device. It comes with a built-in rechargeable Lithium battery and plugs into any 3.5mm jack so is compatible with most audio devices and smartphones. The ball-shaped speaker switches on automatically as soon as it is plugged in.
Ballo’s minimalistic design features a polycarbonate case and a central belt that fuses the two hemispheres. This protects the speaker and increases the bass tones when it is lying on a surface. It is available in ten different colors from OYO’s website for $30.20.
