All-in-One Radio, Speaker, and Instrument
The Teenage Engineering OB-4 is a unique speaker that can record, rewind, and loop anything you play through it. It’s more than just a simple boom box. Dubbed as the “Magic Radio,” OB-4 continuously memorizes everything you listen to on an endless looping tape. You can rewind, time-bend, or loop a radio episode with a flick of your fingertips — just like magic!
Aside from the Bluetooth speaker and FM radio functions, you can explore the experimental features of OB-4’s disk mode. The disk mode allows you to play 30 musical mantras, zone out to drone-generated radio snippets, and use the built-in metronome for high-definition stereo recording.
