  • To say that Black Diamond 3 has improved as a light would be an understatement. It is now equipped with a bright 16-million color LED system that can be locked into one color, allowed to wander through different shades one at a time, or used for multi-colored static or moving lights—all closer to the company’s premium JellyWake lamps than ever before. By comparison with the Black Diamond 2 and Black Diamond Lamp implementations, which were relatively flat and rendered interesting solely because of the faceted translucent plastic, Black Diamond 3’s lighting system is entrancing: fading from color to color, or locked into one of several different scattered rainbow-style patterns, it is truly beautiful. Brightness settings on the remote let you bring the colors from richly saturated tones up to more white-tinted, subtle version that may go better with your room or mood. As a pure lamp, the only thing we could ask for from a future iteration would be even more and brighter lights, but what’s in here is pretty dazzling.

  • Most of the Bluetooth wireless speakers we've covered over the past two years have fallen into simple categories -- all-in-one docking speakers with Bluetooth as a backup, all-in-one dockless speakers with Bluetooth as a primary feature, or traditional multi-piece speakers with Bluetooth and wired options. But over the past few weeks, we've had the opportunity to test a number of new and very different Bluetooth speakers that go further afield from prior concepts, with shapes and neat features that are either unlike anything we've seen before, or just executed better. Today, we're looking at three of them: DBEST's Transformative Bluetooth Hi-Fi System ($250), Swissvoice's BH01u ePure ($140), and Yantouch's Black Diamond 3 ($129). All three include two speakers and Bluetooth 2.1 or newer chips, so they can wirelessly play music streamed from virtually every iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch, as well as the latest seventh-generation iPod nano. But they're otherwise completely dissimilar from each other.

    Combined with Black Diamond 3’s speaker capabilities, the lighting is even more interesting. Yantouch’s remote lets you select various beat-matching light patterns which enable the unit to flutter its lights together or separately in neat ways. As with the standard light patterns, the beat-matching effects are gentle and gradual, which will lend itself better to some genres of songs than others. If there’s any obvious weakness in Black Diamond 3, it’s that this feature could stand to more responsive for the types of songs that are faster and more beat-driven, but what’s here is pretty nice.

Sonically, Black Diamond 3 is pretty much exactly what we’d expect from a simple and relatively inexpensive two-driver audio system: entirely competent and respectable as a desktop speaker, rather than stunning. The drivers are powerful enough for nearby listening, and equipped with enough frequency range to let you hear treble, mids, and mid-bass in your music, though the bass isn’t particularly strong. Thankfully, there’s no major distortion in the speakers, and the stereo separation is solid, thanks to the side positioning of the drivers. Additional bass and power would make a sequel better, but at this price point and given the lamp functionality, Black Diamond 3 is very well equipped.
