Add color to your music with Planets speakers

Posted in Home Theater,Speakers by Conner Flynn on October 10th, 2007

Planets Speakers

It’s about time speaker makers started adding a little color and design to their products. These German engineered speakers from Urban Fidelity(Sounds like an insurance firm, I know) come in some nice neon colors. Those orbs at the top are not just for show either. Yes, they look ultra cool, but the spheres actually create an omni-directional spread of sound.

They are designed to bring 360-degrees of sound to your home theater and in general make you look really cool to your friends.

Portable Zune sound system

Altec Lansing inMotion iM414 sound system for the ZuneNow that a second Zune player is right around the corner we can feel the love for Altec Lansing’s newly announced inMotion iM414. Designed specifically for your Zune not only will the twin bass-enhanced neodymium speakers lovingly cradle your Zune and belt out the tunes on it but it will also charge your player up for the next time you need to head out. A secondary input jack is included so you can connect up a TV, DVD or whatever else you want and a built-in FM radio lets you listen to your local favorite station. If you want to take the inMotion with you it can carry a charge good for 24 hours of music (it can also take batteries.) A remote control is included so you don’t need to exert yourself when you want to skip over the next song. Altec Lansing has the inMotion listed for $99.95 but doesn’t tell us when it will be available.

iPod waterproof music in a tube

Posted in iPod Accessories,Speakers,Waterproof by Reuben Drake on October 4th, 2007

Music Tube waterproof iPod speaker dockThis iPod speaker dock from Taiwan’s Nova has a transparent, waterproof covering that looks like a tube of some sort of lotion or gel, complete with a whole in the end where it would hang on display at the store. The idea is to provide a waterproof speaker system for your iPod that lets you bring it into the shower. It also looks like you might even be able to control the iPod through the case but in reality to us it looks like just a cheap way to try to make a waterproof dock.

Freedom Driver uses your table as a speaker

Posted in Speakers by Nino Marchetti on September 28th, 2007

freedom-driver.jpgA company by the name of Freedom Driver Technology announced this week some devices which will let you play sound through from virtually any flat dense surface such as a table or wall. These three devices – the Mini Can B15, Mini Box B20 and BT Stereo FREE-D B25 – should be available by the end of November.

The Freedom Driver devices use “sound wave transference” to drive sound into and out of the flat surface of nearly any flat-dense material in a 360-degree radius. They have a a “proprietary vibrating core” which changes electrical energy into mechanical energy. They are designed to transfer audio from portable devices like laptops and MP3 players, with the FREE-D B25 being capable of getting audio via Bluetooth.

cy-fi wireless iPod bike speakers

Posted in Exercise Gadgets,iPod Accessories,Outdoors,Speakers by Reuben Drake on September 26th, 2007

cy-fi iPod dock and speakers for your bikeWhile we’re pretty sure we’ve seen bicycle speakers before, including ones for the iPod, cy-fi is a new product designed to dock your iPod and the first we’ve seen to provide wireless speakers mounted on your bike to “ride louder” according to the company.

The idea comes from bike riders who wear headphones to listen to music and are unable to adequately hear traffic around them. The cy-fi system lets them bring their music along in a compact package without the ambient sound restrictions by most headphones.

Lego my iPod

Lego shaped iPod dock with speakersYou want strange, we’ve got strange. Check this iPod dock out that is being offered by a Korean company called 10×10. For a low price (how does about $16 sound to you?) you can import a docking station for your iPod player that looks like a Lego brick.

Whether 10×10 got the license to manufacture an Apple accessory that uses another company’s trademark is up for grabs but if you still have fond recollections of your childhood toys and need a more colorful dock for your ‘pod, now you can stop your search. Measuring 6 cm x 1.5 cm x 2.5 cm, the dock comes in red, yellow and blue and features two speakers built right in. Just don’t get it lost amongst your real Lego bricks.

iHome ultimate Bluetooth speakers/clock radio

Posted in Bluetooth,Clocks,iHome,Speakers by Reuben Drake on September 22nd, 2007

iHome IHC5S clock radio and speakers dock for Bluetooth cell phonesThe iHome iHC5S is one of those incredible multi-gadgets that pack maybe one-too-many features into a single system. Fortunately in this case the features all seem to pretty much go together, unlike the stranger combination found Mini-Fridge we saw earlier this month.

iHome has put together a clock radio that connects wirelessly via the Handsfree, Headset, AVRCP and A2DP Bluetooth profiles to give a system that integrates with Bluetooth enabled mobile phones. The Clock Radio Speaker System, as iHome descriptively calls it, has the ability to receive streaming music from your phone and play it through the 4 built-in stereo speakers. It also lets you control the playback through the system or an included remote control. The alarm clock also allows you to wake up to a buzzer, radio or the streamed music from your phone.

Altec Lansing puts bar speaker below monitor

Posted in Altec Lansing,Speakers by Nino Marchetti on September 10th, 2007

Altec Lansing FX3020 SoundBarI bet here’s a question you’ve always pondered – what should I do with that unused area beneath my flat panel monitor? Stick pencils there? Altec Lansing is betting it has a more interesting option to fill that space – the new FX3020 SoundBar Speaker System, priced at around $100 and available in October.

The FX3020 SoundBar Speaker System is rectangular, one piece and low profile so it fits nicely underneath your monitor. The drivers are “precision-angled” and there’s also sound widening technology which is supposed to give you that full room sound experience. Throw in some bass technology, a single control knob and a side-positioned auxiliary input and you are ready to party.

Nokia’s Flip-Open Portable Speakers

Posted in Nokia,Speakers by Darrin Olson on September 9th, 2007

Nokia Mini Speakers MD-6 are portable and the top flips open for useNokia has some new, small portable speakers that were launched along side their XpressMusic phones to give a handy and portable way to share music on the go. Nokia says that the Mini MD-6 speakers give “great sound” in full stereo from your mobile devices when you on the move, but what we really like about it is the case design.

The MD6 comes in just under a 5-inch case in which the top hinges open to expose two small speakers, and protects them when closed. They then connect to your media player through 3.5mm AV connector (headphone jack?). The specs also mention that the speakers have a built-in FM radio antenna which must be for bringing better FM reception to your player since the speakers don’t appear to have any FM tuner controls on it.

Caught in the Mobius Duct

Posted in Sony,Speakers by Chetz on September 4th, 2007

mobiusduct_speakersAs Morpheus said in “The Matrix”, “No one can tell you what the Matrix is. You have to experience it for yourself.” That sounds like what we will have to do when Sony brings out its SRS-ZX1 speakers on October 20 in the Japanese market.

Looking a little bit like a spy cam, these speakers utilize a new proprietary technology that Sony calls “Mobius Duct” that supposedly makes for a more forceful low frequency wave. The speakers measure 3.1 x 6.6 x 7.4-inches, have two channels of 20W output, a built-in amp, a remote control and two analog inputs.

Posted in iPod Accessories,Speakers,Waterproof by Chetz on August 23rd, 2007

Aquapod splash proof ipod or other MP3 player speaker and caseThis splash-proof speaker/case provides a dry sanctuary for your media player allowing you to listen to it in places that aren’t so dry such as at a pool, in the shower or in the rain. The sound is heard through a single speaker, and similar to the iPod shower dock we saw earlier this year, once your player is enclosed in the case there is unfortunately really no way to control its functionality without taking it out.

Inside the case there’s a standard headphone jack to connect the player to the external speaker and the cases speaker volume can then be adjusted from the outside. The case provides a padded interior and measures 6.25″H x 3.5″W x 2″D, retailing for $14.99.
