Samsung Radiant360 R5 Speaker with WiFi and Bluetooth
Despite its sleek, minimal design, this cylindrical speaker puts out rich, powerful sound. Set it in the center of a room and it’ll fill the entire space with music evenly thanks to 360° sound projection. And with built-in Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity, you can stream your favorite tunes to the speaker wirelessly from your smartphone.
Clear Sound in Every Corner of the Room
The room fills with dance-inducing tunes no matter where you place this speaker thanks to 360° audio projection. Rather than using speaker drivers that project sound in one single direction, the Radiant360 R5 uses a unique Ring Radiator speaker design that ensures music reaches every corner of the room with equal clarity and volume.
Bluetooth: Stream Wireless Music, Internet Radio, and Podcasts
Bluetooth lets you stream wireless music from an enabled mobile device, leaving you free to mingle with guests, clean the house, or do yoga—all without interrupting the music. Moreover, Bluetooth plays your favorite songs over the system’s speakers, filling the room with richer sound than most smartphones, tablets, or laptops can.
Intuitive Touch Controls
Tap and swipe the top of this speaker to pause songs or skip ahead to your favorite track. The entire top panel is a touch-sensitive pad that recognizes a wide range of gestures that can be used to control music playback.

In the 70 years of its existence, Samsung has grown into an international company with interests spanning from home electronics to skyscraper construction. The company takes its global role seriously, working to improve communities with both its financial support and the expertise of its talented employees. The company’s Solve for Tomorrow competition, for instance, challenges kids to create videos that demonstrate how science and math can be used in new ways to improve their local environment. After screening the videos of thousands of worthy entrants and dozens of confused American Idol hopefuls, Samsung chooses five winners, whose schools each receive $110,000 in technology. Solve for Tomorrow is just one of the company’s outreach initiatives, which align with its philosophy: to help build a “better global society.”
Whether you need a speaker for your bedroom or for a backpacking kit, this guide will help you choose the right one.
