Q-TV2 Speakers put stereo speakers and a subwoofer behind your HDTV

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on December 27th, 2009

We don’t know for sure if the sound on this thing is awesome or sucky, but we love the design in which Q Acoustics hides a complete speaker system behind your flat panel TV. The setup works with TVs between 30 and 42 inches and attaches to an existing frame. It will even work with your TV sitting on a stand.

Right now it’s only available in Europe for $500. Sure it’s pricey but it gets the speakers out of the way and chances are it’s better than the speakers built into your TV.

ELAC Art Edition FS 247 speakers

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on December 13th, 2009

ELAC Art Edition FS 247 speakersGood speakers cost quite a bit, so why not make sure they fit into your lifestyle? ELAC’s Art Edition FS 247 speakers want to blend in with your environment. These speakers feature a high gloss finish, and can be had in a variety of decorative themes.

The tattoo motifs will also help protect the speakers from scratches. And don’t worry, you aren’t stuck with just one look. They can be removed and switched if you get tired of your current motif. Pricing starts at $1500. Sure, that’s pretty steep, but I’m sure one or two of you out there can afford it and start a club where the pair of you swap motifs and trade stories about how you used to have money.

Electrolux vacuum is so quiet it packs an iPod dock and speakers

Posted in Vacuum by Conner Flynn on December 10th, 2009

Electrolux vacuum so quiet it packs an iPod dock and speakersElectrolux just launched a commercial vacuum cleaner so quiet that it features an iPod dock and speakers. The “UltraSilencer” is the first such vacuum in existence. The company even went so far as to conduct a lab study to prove that “music assisted vacuuming increases the number of nozzle sweeps, improves the cleaning result and leaves a general feeling of happiness.”

We say it just takes the boring out of vacuuming. Why it’s as if Van Halen or Pink Floyd were cleaning your house right by your side. Awesome concept.

JBL Creature III speakers for computers debut

Posted in Computer Components by Shane McGlaun on December 3rd, 2009

jblcreature3-sgSome folks like quirky things. These folks eschew the average and normal in favor of something that is different and cool. Personally, I just like things that are cool and the JBL Creature II speakers I used to own were certainly cool. JBL announced its new Creature III speakers today.

The new speakers share a close resemblance to the previous version and look like ghosts from Pac Man. JBL calls them Sci-Fi inspired. The speakers are a 2.1 system with a pair of satellites and a woofer. The sats are 3″ x 3″ x 2-3/4″ with a 40mm driver. The subwoofer is a 3-inch unit measuring 9″ x 9″ x 9″.

Audio-Technica BoogieBox SpeakersAudio-Technica’s AT-SPB5 BoogieBox Speakers look like boomboxes that have had a makeover. They sport a rugged design that makes them perfect for going with you everywhere. But they are also packing some power, thanks to a few 70mm full range speaker units and an amplifier.

They sell for $159.99 and feature a battery life of about 10 hours. They come in your choice of red, black or camouflage. Seems a tad expensive, but if you want an “active speaker with street style”, I guess you have to pay.

USB Panda Speakers look sad

USB Panda Speakers look sadAre you in desperate need of a giant animal head on your desk? One that has large black eyes that hold sadness like an abyss? It’s just what it appears to be, a giant honking Panda head with speakers in it’s eyes.

Why you would want one, we can’t begin to guess. How you interact with it, we don’t want to know. It will cost you $27 if you want this USB-powered speaker. He looks pretty depressing to me. As if he’s begging you to save his dying species.

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on September 30th, 2009

LaCie's Sound2 USB Speakers look goodLaCie’s Sound2 USB speakers almost look too good. What are they hiding? Are they overcompensating for something? Hmmm. You don’t usually think LaCie when you think audio, but these look so nice we are willing to believe that they must sound good too. We hope.

The Sound2 laptop speakers are USB-powered, with the audio coming from Cabasse, a French audio company. They were designed by Neil Poulton and will cost you $100. Like Fox Mulder, we “want to believe” that these beauties sound good at that price.
