Wake the dead with coffin speakers

Posted in music,Speakers by Conner Flynn on December 3rd, 2007

Coffin It Up Coffin Speakers

These Coffin It Up coffin speakers would have been great for Halloween. Maybe you’re feeling Goth or just a tad emo, in which case they are perfect for year round use. Each coffin is made with melamine and houses 2 sets of speakers: 5″ 2 way and 6″ x 9″ three way speakers. Vibration dampening material inside helps create crystal clear sound that that will travel through your entire Addams Family mansion.

Each coffin speaker is 25.5″ long X 13″ wide X 8″ deep and comes complete with hand grips on the side for your poll-bearers to “carry that weight”. I suppose the only way these would be better for your music crypt, would be if a skeleton actually popped out with a guitar.

Teresonic Magus speakers go eco-friendly

Posted in Speakers by Nino Marchetti on November 27th, 2007

Teresonic MagusTeresonic is hoping to appeal to those seeking “environment-friendly audio” by unveiling a speaker which draws only a few watts per channel. The new Teresonic Magus speaker is priced at $3,985 a pair.

The Teresonic Magus speakers are a smaller size, said the company, using low power amplifiers which include vacuum tubes, a sensitivity of 98dB and what’s termed a “unique design” to produce sound more equivalent to larger, more power hungry speakers. The design itself is described as being full-range and straight-through (crossover-less).

“I Look” interactive eyeball speakers

“I Look” interactive eyeball speakers

I don’t know about you, but when I look at the “I Look” speakers, I see something that looks alot like teletubbie technology. This must be their way of taking over the world since Tubbie custard failed to do the trick.

It’s a new and possibly creepy way to enjoy tunes on your mp3 player. These interactive eyeballs light up, flash, and move to the beat. And if you clap your hands, they will look in your direction. Hopefully, you won’t be hypnotised and do their bidding. The manufacturer even claims that they light up with millions of color patterns.

boynq iCube II adds color & style

boynq’s iCube II speaker and docking system

boynq’s iCube II speaker and docking system gives off some retro vibes, thanks to hot colors and nicely detailed design. The award winning company is known for such attention to detail. Even the packaging for the one above is eye catching, matching the product. It’s from boynq’s Pour Femme collection, which I believe translates to “for her”.

They do have a more manly option as well. The “Pour Homme” version of the iCube II. Truth is they are both eye candy, with subtle curves mixed with the right sized knobs. The large knob in the center even lights up. The connections are of course located in back. Line in, line out, iPod USB connection and the DC power in. It will allow you to charge and sync your iPod, connect the iPod shuffle and other audio devices and connect to your home stereo.

Motion sensing air speaker

These speakers/moodlight/FM radio are simply way too cool to behold. They remind me of the Easter Island stone heads, you know, if aliens had mated with robots and then made art. For a dock, it really does do quite alot.

Raise and lower the volume by simply waving your hand across the infrared sensor. You can tune the radio by the same means. No need to press any buttons. Of course you can plug your mp3 player into it, or turn on the radio. If you get really bored you watch the pretty mood light glow.

Posted in Speakers by Nino Marchetti on November 14th, 2007

Art.EngineFerrari-inspired. Wireless. $20,000. These descriptors all refer to the new high end Art.Engine “executive” audio system introduced today by design studio David Wiener Ventures. This limited edition offering is available in a quantity of 1,000 only.

The Art.Engine is actually licensed by Ferrari for what we think is marketing purposes. It stands 47 inches tall and 6 inches deep. It combines twin-speaker arrays, wireless signal input, and digital electronics in a tower design. Each of its two channels, according to its maker, hosts eight three-inch DWV carbon-fiber, high-performance low-to-midrange woofers, and one 1.1-inch ScanSpeak soft-dome tweeter with a Neodymium motor.

Apple Design USB Speakers

Posted in Speakers,USB by Reuben Drake on November 8th, 2007

Apple SpeakersMaybe this company just likes making speakers shaped like fruit or maybe they’re taking a more welcome route of latching onto the Apple popularity as apposed to throwing the letter “i” in front of their product name, but either way these speakers look kinda’ cool.

When put together the two channel, 1W speakers are held in place by magnets and they are in fact shaped like an Apple and have no affiliation to Apple the company. The speakers are powered by a USB connection from your computer and connect sound through a standard 3.5mm audio jack from your computer or just about any mp3 player. They come on colors of red or green and measure, well, about the size of an apple at 112x104x56mm each. The Apple Design speaker set runs about 25 Euros, (~$36 USD) on Ebay.de.

Turn any surface into a speaker with IceKube

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on November 6th, 2007

Turn any surface into a speaker with IceKube

When is a speaker not a speaker? When that speaker is the IceKube from Icetech. You see, the IceKube speaker itself is not a speaker. It will turn any flat surface that you put it on into a speaker, through vibration. Just put it on a table, computer desk, anywhere.

And it is small enough that you can carry it around. When you suddenly get the urge to listen to some music, just set it down and get to vibrating that surface. It will turn any surface into an acoustic speaker system. As is the case with many of the objects that we report on, this will impress your friends and members of the opposite sex.

R2-D2 speakers make your computer geek-chic

Posted in Speakers,Star Wars by Conner Flynn on October 19th, 2007

Star Wars speakers from TaitoI know, I know. The world doesn’t need yet another R2-D2 product right? Wrong. I’m not sure why, but these Star Wars speakers from Taito make the geek in me very happy. Though, I’m not sure why they felt the need to put the speakers just under the head, making it look like R2 is decapitated. Even so, this will go well with the rest of your Star Wars themed life. You know, the bedsheets, posters, action figure dioramas, lunch boxes and that shirt you’re wearing.

They stand 4.72″ tall. You get one in blue and one in red, though the color combo seems like an odd choice. You won’t even sense that much of a disturbance in the force, paying $40 for this droid pair. Let’s face it, this won’t get you many dates, but you’ll have geek bragging rights among your friends. And if they make a C3P0 version, R2 won’t be lonely for long.

$140K nets you sleek, tall, limited MUON speakers

Posted in KEF,Speakers by Nino Marchetti on October 19th, 2007

KEF MUONHave a $140,000 in coins under your sofa lying around you need to spend? Are you a big audiophile? If so the money and audio paths can converge with the massive new and pricey KEF MUON loudspeakers unveiled here in the United States this week.

The KEF MUON, as you can see from the photo, are quite tall at nearly seven feet. Only 100 have been made. Each pair is designed from super-formed aluminum, creating what is described as “a careful convergence between Ross Lovegrove’s design aesthetics and the physics of sound.” A four-way speaker system is mounted to the front, offering what we have to imagine is a kick ass sound. There’s also two additional bass drivers on the back of the speakers.

Sony Ericsson MBS-100 Bluetooth Speaker

Posted in Bluetooth,Sony Ericsson,Speakers by Reuben Drake on October 11th, 2007

Sony Ericsson MBS-100 Bluetooth speakerSony Ericsson is touting this portable speaker stating it “looks as good as it sounds”, which makes us worry a little bit about the “sound” part. The 100mm sphere can connect wirelessly from your mobile phone through the A2DP Bluetooth stereo audio profile allowing you to stream music saved on your phone directly to the speaker and share your sounds without wires.

The 1.5 watt speaker in the MBS-100 is powered by a rechargeable battery that gives it up to 5 hours of playback with as many hours of charge time, or 50 hours of standby. It also comes packaged with a charger and a carrying bag so people don’t think you have some rotting fruit you’re carrying around. The specs say it comes in a single color of black but the press kit photos seem to have a touch of brown to them.
