The Crescent Smart Speaker from Cleer Audio Combines Statement-Making Design with Unparalleled Sound

Crescent smart

Cleer Audio’s Crescent smart speaker marks a step away from the glut of cylindrical efforts with a speaker shaped like the crescent of the moon. Tucked into its sleek shape are eight custom 40mm full-range drivers and two 3.3-inch subwoofers. It supports Hi-Res Audio formats and can stream from sources such as Spotify Connect, or over Wi-Fi, Apple AirPlay 2 and Chromecast. Audio formats supported include AAC, FLAC, WMA, and Apple Lossless. If hooking up other sources is of interest, the Crescent has space for a 3.5mm jack, Ethernet and Optical inputs.

“We knew we wanted to challenge the prevailing notion that home speakers should be clunky towers or boxy soundbars,” says Patrick Huang, CEO of Cleer Audio. “Music is such an integral part to the warmth of our home, we wanted the aesthetics of our smart speaker to provide the same emotion when you look at it that we get when we put on a favorite album.”

“For many years, speakers in the home wouldn’t blend into their environment and would stick out in a non-attractive way.” Said Alex Arie, Vice President of Design at Cleer Inc. “Because consumers shouldn’t have to settle for basic looking audio, we designed this speaker to not only optimize the listening experience but the aesthetics of the home. Crescent is an emotional expression of our love of both design and music.”

The speaker comes equipped with an optimized mic array and noise-rejection that Cleer assures produces superior far-field voice recognition. The Crescent has been designed to work in tandem with the new Cleer+ app, from which users can customize the speaker’s EQ.

There are a number of bespoke audio modes to choose from. For an immersive listening experience, Wide Stereo Mode can conjure a large soundscape from a stereo mix; Room Filling Mode disperses audio evenly throughout a room, while 3D Immersive Mode uses beamforming technology to channel sound to a single location for the perfect audio sweet spot.

Alex Arie, Vice President of Design at Cleer Inc said: “For many years, speakers in the home wouldn’t blend into their environment and would stick out in a non-attractive way. Because consumers shouldn’t have to settle for basic looking audio, we designed this speaker to not only optimize the listening experience but the aesthetics of the home. Crescent is an emotional expression of our love of both design and music.”

Crescent will be available for $599.99 (UK around £599.99, TBC) in August 2020 at cleeraudio.com, authorized retailers as well as Amazon.com. You may also find the Crescent at CES, January 7-10 at booth 16720, Central Hall.
