Mickey Mouse speaker is all ears

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on March 23rd, 2008

Mickey Mouse speaker is all ears
If you love Mickey and want a pair of speakers to stick in your iRiver MP3 player, this might be for you. As you can see, he’s all ears as usual with his typical goofy grin. (What’s the deal with only having Mickey. What about Donald Duck? No one likes Donald?)

The stereo speaker measures 6.3 x 3.46 x 4.96 in, weighs about 21 oz, and connects to any music player using a 3,5mm stereo audio jack. Looks like it comes in silver only. You can get it from DealExtreme for $20.10.

X-mini Capsule speakers lose the wires

Posted in Speakers by Darrin Olson on March 22nd, 2008

Wireless X-mini capsule speakers from XM-I.I have to admit that we thought these little X-mini speakers from Singapore’s XM-I were pretty nifty to begin with, but now XM-I says the speakers are going wireless. The X-mini’s are small (around 52mm wide) speakers that can fit in your pocket and be used to pump out the sound to share from your PMP.

When you want to use the speakers, they will pop open accordion-style and product sound with a special bass chamber through a high-fidelity 2.4W speaker. Now, with a limited amount of power we really can’t imagine the X-mini will really be pumping a whole lot of sound, and a wireless version would probably have even less juice but they are still a pretty neat solution.

Do MiniGod speakers sacrifice sound?

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on March 11th, 2008

MiniGod speakers
These MiniGod speakers look so freaking cool I want to worship them and I wouldn’t mind doing so from the top of a Pyramid, even if I had to toss decapitated heads down the steps all day to make it happy. But while awesome looking and clearly a real God, the fact that it only requires a 9V battery to operate suggests that the first sacrifice this God made was the sound.

I say who cares. I’ve found my new God. As long as I do his bidding and offer up a fresh 9V battery now and again, I think we’ll get along just fine. If it wants an actual blood sacrifice, well…Let’s just say there’s room for advancement here at the Brick. Hmmm…Who to start with…

Eco-Speakers made from recycled materials

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on March 8th, 2008

Here’s a line of speakers for all you tree-hugging nature lovers. The Fashionation company has a line of small cube and pyramid shaped 3.25-inch speakers that are made from recycled materials and they don’t even need batteries to run. Great sound, and they help save the environment. Another cool aspect is that the speakers fold flat for storage and portability.

Did I mention that they are inexpensive? At $14.95, these won’t ravage your wallet while helping the planet and they can be had in a wide range of color options as shown above. They look like a party ready to happen. Though I do wonder how long they would last. They don’t look very durable.

500XL iPod Speakers
Finally some iPod earphones that Prince Charles or a giant can use. This new version is 500 times the size of the originals. You should probably use these as speakers for your PC or mp3 player, and not put one on each side of your head.

The 500XL speakers include a built in amp and can also be powered by batteries, USB or DC. No word on pricing or availability just yet though, so don’t alert your big-eared friends just yet. You have to love the clamshell packaging on these.

Scare up some sound with skull speakers

Scare up some sound with skull speakers
You probably need these speakers like you need a hole in the head. Now that I think of it, these skull speakers actually have holes in their heads from when they met their unfortunate end. Anyway, their loss of life can be your gain.

They will definitely give guests a chill and goth up your stereo system. They come with a headphone jack which you can hook up to your computer or media player. So whether you have a liking for old bones, or an Indiana Jones motif, or even a Bat cave, these will complete the look.

The XtremeMac Tango X2 is described as “a full range speaker system with a subwoofer and AM/FM radio wrapped in an elegant design that delivers big sound from a deceptively compact unit.” Having had hands on experience with the first Tango we have to imagine this will be even a better system.

The speakers are driven by a 35 watt amp and consist of 2 high-range tweeters, 4 midrange and a seperate subwoofer.
