Elipson Planet L Speakers

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on February 2nd, 2011

These look more like hovering robot eyes than planets, but Elipson’s Planet L Speakers have some nice specs. They use coaxial 2-way design with a 25mm soft dome tweeter and a 165mm paper-cone mid/woofer. Plus they have a great modern and space age look.

They feature a frequency response of 48Hz to 20,000Hz with 90dB sensitivity and 6-ohm impedance. Each weighs a hefty 15.4 pounds so mount them securely so they don’t fall on your head. They will cost you about $965 for a pair.

Zumreed X2 Hybrid Headphones are also Speakers

Posted in Headphones by Conner Flynn on February 1st, 2011

The X2 Hybrid Headphones look common enough, but look closer. They double as speakers. It allows you to switch back and forth between headphones or external speakers. If your ears get tired, just switch them. The outside of the earcups functions as the external speaker and the interior earcups function as a normal pair of headphones. Pretty neat design.

The drivers are 40mm and as speakers they output 0.5 watts. When used as a speaker they need to be charged and will operate for 4 hours on a 1 hour charge. They also come with a 3.5mm stereo gold plated plug and a 6.3mm stereo plug.

Ultrasonic Speakers are for your ears only

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on January 27th, 2011

Are you tired of dealing with angry neighbors who aren’t happy with the volume of your music? The new ultrasonic Klang speaker can help. It’s just a concept right now, but these speakers are designed to send a narrow beam of sound directly to the listener, while being inaudible to others.

The speakers send out sound in an ultrasonic frequency around 30,000 Hz. The sound travels straight ahead and creates music inside your ears if you are in it’s path. They can be adjusted in different directions to make the sound feel like its coming from somewhere else too.

Razer Ferox portable speakers

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on January 25th, 2011

Razer has launched a new pair of portable speakers for mobile gamers to use on their laptops. These Ferox portable speakers emit sound in all directions instead of the typical 90-180 degree angle of regular speakers, giving you a much wider sweet spot.

The speakers will last for a nice 12 hours on a single charge, which should be plenty for most gaming sessions. They work with any media player that has a 3.5mm audio jack. The Razer Ferox speakers are available now for just $59.99.

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on January 11th, 2011

Parrot, leaders in all kinds of wireless peripherals, has launched the Zikmu Parrot by Starck: Dragon Red speakers. The design is tall as the name is long and like the name implies, they are in bold red.

Some features include an iPod or iPhone docking station and you can listen to web radio using a dedicated iPhone/iPod touch application. They also offer Wi-Fi and Bluetooth audio streaming as well as browsing and control.

Hercules XPS101 Refined Performance Speakers

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on January 4th, 2011

Hercules will be unveiling their new XPS101 Refined Performance Speakers this week at CES 2011, even though they look like something you would attach to your car to make it look more old-timey. Despite their look, this is a high-end 2.1 audio system that is said to bring the “dynamic ambience of a live music event, the captivating soundtrack of an action movie and the precision audio effects of a multiplayer video game” to your living room.

I’m sorry they just look too much like a horn or a spotlight, even if they are made of high-quality materials for great acoustic performance. The rounded satellites feature a black lacquer finish and metal back sections. They should hit stores this month at $249.99.


Another iPad 2 case shows up with slots for mesh speakers

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on December 24th, 2010

We recently saw some leaked pics of new iPad cases for the next-generation Apple iPad, and interestingly they had a large opening at the bottom of the case. Some speculated that it was for larger speakers or a built-in SD card slot.

Now another iPad case has surfaced that shows the rear with a metal mesh for an iPad speaker. This comes after recent reports hinted that the slot is for a speaker instead of an SD card slot.

Hexound headset can be turned into speakers

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on December 23rd, 2010

The Hexound headset’s design is definitely drool-worthy. It’s just a concept for now, but we sure hope they become real. The headset can be detached and then they are turned into portable speakers. There’s also a solar panel in the headband.

Other specs include Bluetooth and intuitive controls. With these, you can listen to your music alone or share it whenever the mood strikes you, just by detaching. Hopefully these become real one day soon. I know I would buy them.

Aluratek’s Bump wireless speakers

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on December 21st, 2010

One thing that we all want are speakers. Without the wires. Aluratek has heard our collective plea and launched three new wireless audio products called Bump. Oddly there’s a wired model among them, but whatever. There’s the $49.99 AMS01F, which is a boombox that plays music from SD cards, line-in, or FM and delivers six hours on a charge.

Next up is the $79.99 AUWS01F which uses a signal sent from a 2.4GHz USB dongle in your PC or Mac to play tunes from your machine. Next is the $99.99 AWS01F, which is the AMS01F boombox with the addition of a separate wireless speaker.

Golfers will love these Golf Ball Speakers. They are called ‘Shinekkusuinfotekku’ and will look good on any golfer’s desk. It has a diameter of 42.5 mm and weighs just 25 grams. It also comes with a stand so it won’t roll around everywhere.

Edifier Soundbar for notebooks

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on October 23rd, 2010

Edifier’s latest Soundbar USB peripheral looks like one that you may actually want to use. It will boost the volume of your music and movie watching experience on a notebook. We love the design and notebook speakers could always use a boost.

The Edifier Soundbar USB will sit on top of your notebook, while being powered via USB to keep it portable. Woofers and tweeters are built-in for superior audio quality. Just $49 and it is compatible with just about any Mac, Windows PC or other computer that uses USB audio.

iPad and speakers get mounted on a bike

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on September 24th, 2010

Apple’s iPad can seemingly do anything and go anywhere. Now we have seen the tablet attached to a bike, along with speakers in front. We don’t have many details, but we do know that this guy will want to easily remove both iPad and speakers everytime he parks that bike.

That iPad cradle looks well made, but I still cringe about bumps and accidents killing the device. Anyway, it’s a cool setup. We like it.

Posted in Creative by Shane McGlaun on September 1st, 2010

Creative has been around for a long time and I first knew them as the company that made sound cards for gaming PCs and other computers. Today Creative has all sorts of gear from MP3 players to speakers and still makes those sound cards too.

Creative has announced a new speaker for outdoor use called the Sound Blaster Wireless Rock. The speaker is one of those outside jobs that looks like a granite stone sitting there. It gets power from a lithium ion battery pack that is removable for charging.
