Each version has a built in USB-rechargeable battery pack that will give you enough juice for about 2.5 hours of playback time. That’s pretty impressive for the size. They’ll cost you $25. Small speakers, big sound. What more do you want?

Music Cage bluetooth speakerJapanese company Nendo has designed this wireless home speaker that matches the crazy old lady decor of white lace and bird cages everywhere. It also works via Bluetooth and is available in black or white. Guess which one your grandmother would choose. The Music Cage comes in just one size with some retro chrome switches like in the old days.

It can be displayed on a table or suspended from the ceiling. If you gift one of these to your grandma, expect a call asking where her bird went and why she can’t get in to put newspaper on the bottom.

Portable Toilet SpeakersWhen your music sounds like sh*t, you might as well flush it down the toilet right? Let’s face it, speakers shaped like toilets probably have a sound to match the shape, but if you’re buying these, you probably just like toilet shaped things.

Only $14.99 each. Like your music, your cash will get flushed away. I’m guessing this is aimed at the crowd who puts broken toilets on the lawn as planters. Seriously, would any of you buy this?

Salk Sound HT4 giant bamboo speakersSalk Sound’s latest speakers, look like they belong in some weird sci-fi flick. They are definitely different. They are dubbed the HT 4 to outdo the current HT 3 line. These babies weigh 155 lbs and stand about 42″ high. Supposedly they can deliver “a very accurate recreation of what you would hear in a concert hall or other live venue.”

They are made of trans-laminated bamboo, but there is a cheaper Medium Density Fiberboard version in the works too.

DIY Eco Speakers let you decorate and customize

DIY Eco Speakers let you decorate and customize Not everyone wants to pay hundreds of dollars for top of the line sound and quality looks. But others take a more minimal approach to speakers. For those people, you can now purchase a kit to create your very own DIY speakers. As a bonus, they’re eco-friendly.

The kit comes with everything you’ll need for the speakers including things to decorate them with. We find it interesting that they don’t say whether the crayons/pencils are eco-friendly or not. The cardboard set of speakers can be found for $18 through Urban Outfitters. It would be a great project for the kids.

USB Optimus Prime speakers

USB Optimus Prime speakersYou might think that if you have some Transformers speakers, they would…transform. Sadly, that’s not the case with these USB Optimus Prime speakers. The only thing that moves are Optimus’ ears, turning him into Prince Charles or a robot elephant.

Other than that, it will blast your favorite tunes. The only thing that transforms is your wallet, which loses $50 on this pair of desktop speakers.

FH001 transparent speakers are eco friendly, cost $26,000Some people really love transparent gadgets. Sometimes they can really beautiful, but sometimes they just look like 2 giant transparent bullhorns with a woman wearing a nightgown in between. This is a new design from Ferguson Hill dubbed the FH001.

The horn speaker pumps out 3 to 50 watts, so it isn’t much of a speaker, but they are green. How are they green? Well, the speakers are made of clear acrylic and have a ultra high efficiency design. There’s also a spherical subwoofer that looks like a fishbowl.

K-box turns tables and walls into giant speakersKerchoonz has announced the K-box, a portable device about the size of the iPhone, that will turn your tables, walls and other flat surfaces into giant speakers. It works by plugging into your laptop, portable gaming device, netbook, mp3 player etc, that is equipped with a headphone jack.

Just set it on a desktop, table top or wall and with its internal patented gel audio technology, it will turn the entire surface beneath it into a giant speaker, with some fantastic bass sound. I wonder if it will honk off the neighbors in your apartment building if you just put it on the wall and crank up the tunes?

Altec Lansing IMT237-Orbit MP3 Portable Audio SpeakerAltec Lansing has introduced their IMT237-Orbit MP3 portable audio speaker in Korea. It’s powered by 3 AAA batteries that will give you up to 24 hours of non-stop audio playback.

All I ask is that you have good taste in music if you absolutely have to use this in public with your portable media player or notebook. We don’t know what kind of power the speaker has, but obviously it won’t be damaging many eardrums.

X-mini Max II looks like a trash can, sounds like a speaker

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on April 24th, 2009

xminimaxX-Mini likes to make speakers with an unusual design, like these capsule speakers. Now they’re back with some speakers that take speaker design to a whole new level. Dubbed the Max II, they resemble trashcans, which I’m sure is no mistake considering some of the garbage that will enter them.

The new design also features a bigger driver with “twice the bass.” No word on when these will be released in the US. Which is sad because we know you can’t wait to here your tunes through a pair of trash cans.
