iHome iH41

Who says alarm clocks need be ordinary? That is the thought behind the new iHome iH41, a rotating alarm clock with iPod touch dock priced at around $80.

The iHome iH41 comes in an L-shape design and is built to take advantage of the variable aspect screen of the iPod touch. It can switch orientation so one can watch videos in either horizontal or vertical displays. The digital clock display also rotates to match the orientation of the iH41.

Speaker turn your iPod into a ball and chain
If you’ve ever been married or held prisoner in a dungeon, you are probably very familiar with the ball and chain concept. This is kinda like that, but for your iPod.

It’s a speaker that stands out by being an odd looking ball. ZumReed’s Sound Ball speaker is designed to hang out on your key chain or book bag, and when you want to hear some tunes, just plug it into the audio jack on your iPod or other mp3 player. Comes in pink, lime green and purple flavors and the battery is built-in and rechargeable via USB. It will get you some odd looks. Say, I wonder why they don’t come in pairs, that wouldn’t look weird at all.

Muso voice control for your iPod
If having all of that music at your fingertips isn’t enough for you and you want a still easier way to access your music, this might be just the thing. The Muso is a gadget that plugs into the iPod, and gives you voice control.

It will synchronize with your iTunes library on the first use, without any training. It understands requests like “Play some Beatles”, “Give me Rap”, or even “Play me something like the last song”. It costs $159, and the battery lasts for 10 hours, which is plenty of time for you to have talked yourself hoarse, much to the dismay of those around you.

Hercules i-XPS SoundBox Portable Speaker for iPods
The i-XPS Soundbox is probably designed for those who want to chill by the pool or at the beach, or wherever, but the first thing I thought when I saw these is that they are downright fugly. The portable speaker will enclose and suffocate your iPod Nano (1st, 2nd, and 3rd generation), iPod Mini, iPod Classic, and other MP3 Players.

It has an integrated mini jack cable connection that connects it to the speakers through the headphone jack on the your MP3 Player. Then just zip it up to keep your MP3 player safe. It’s powered by 2 AAA batteries. I know you can’t wait to dress your iPod up as either Stone, Splash, or Spray design.

Krell Papa Dock

There are iPod accessores and then there are IPOD ACCESSORIES. The latter is the one we look at here with the new Krell KID and Papa Dock, priced at around $1,500 and $2,500, respectively.

Krell, which also has a nice $50k preamp/processor, does up iPod accessories like we haven’t really seen before. The KID itself is best described as an iPod dock on steroids, boasting such features as using fully differential output of the internal DAC for iPod-devices, digitally-controlled analog bass and treble controls and balance and single ended outputs.

JVC NX-PN7 dual iPod docking station clock radioToday JVC finally officially launched that dual iPod docking station we saw earlier this year at CES which has the ability to dock two iPods at the same time. The NX-PN7 stands out from the crowd of endless iPod accessories since it can hold not one but two iPods, or an iPod and an iPhone, charging and playing from either of them.

The dual iPod dock also features an AM/FM clock radio and video out to output your video media to a television. And don’t forget that bit of “flare” they added to the device with the illuminated strips that can show one of nine colors. JVC appropriately has set the retail price of the NX-PN7 to about double the price of a single iPod dock, at $149.95.

T-Shirt wired for iPods runs on sucker power

Posted in iPod Accessories by Conner Flynn on June 8th, 2008

T-Shirt wired for iPodsI don’t know about you, but some iPod accessories just rub me the wrong way, are just plain annoying, not mention overpriced. Example: These iPod T-Shirts. They come in a variety of designs to appeal to both males and females of the species, but that really doesn’t help. I have no desire to part with my money at all.

Would you want to wear this? They just attached earbuds and a pocket to hold the device. They did go out of their way to be environmentally friendly though, since the shirts are made from cotton and bamboo. The $70 price tag is just too much for a crappy shirt.

iPod Lamps combine music, with a lamp…

iPod Lamps combine music, with a lamp…
Look at those silly iPod lamps all gathered together and having a great old time. All colorful and retro looking. They think they’re pretty special. I don’t have the heart to tell them that they offer nothing new. I mean, that would just be cruel. But, the thing is, they aren’t all that special. Sure, they’re retro looking, but get this. I’ve been listening to music with a lamp on at the same time for practically my whole life.

Don’t get me wrong, I like the colors, but I like you, already own a lamp. On the other hand, if lighting is something new for you and you want an iPod dock to go along with your foray into electricity, it retails for $150 and comes in white, pink, black and brown colors.

Goodman’s iPod boombox with 7-inch LCD display

Goodman’s iPod boombox with 7-inch LCD display
One thing is for sure, this is not your father’s boombox. It’s not a hulking chrome monstrosity with tons of buttons and levers, with a speaker on each side. If you’ve been waiting to buy an iPod sound system with some extravagance, you will likely love Goodmans’ latest.

Aside from the usual pair of speakers, it boasts a 3-in-1 multicard reader, LED accents, iPod dock and a bundled remote. The unit also includes an integrated 7-inch LCD display for showing off stored clips, photos, and the like. No word on exact resolution, so it’s probably not that great. Still, might be worth looking into for $178.
