Kenwood Squeezophone 360° speaker delivers sound everywhere

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on April 8th, 2009

Kenwood Squeezophone 360°I know what you’re thinking. You’ve never seen such a fine specimen of speaker technology merged with Wiffle ball design. I couldn’t agree more. Kenwood’s Squeezophone 360° speaker is similar to the insanely expensive Sony Soutina speakers, pumping music in all directions with acoustic technology.

We don’t know much else because it’s still in the development stages. We feel pretty confident it won’t be cheap. Making things look like Wiffle balls is an expensive business. I applaud their creative genius and their willingness to venture into such uncharted territory.

Posted in Headphones by Conner Flynn on April 2nd, 2009

6-Channel Surround Sound headphonesThe Zalman ZM-RS6F+M 6-Channel Surround Sound Headphones + Microphone is as close as you will ever get to being that Lobot guy from Empire Strikes Back. I always wondered what that guy’s deal was. It was surround sound!

It’s from Brando. These Real Surround Sound Headphones produce a real surround field that is said to be comparable to a complete multi-channel speaker system as it will enhance directional, spatial, and realistic effects. Only $57.00 and you can be that guy! Now be honest fellow geeks, how many of you actually knew that character’s name?

Posted in iPod Accessories by Conner Flynn on April 2nd, 2009

Remote Control car with iPod speakersWe’ve covered many an iPod speaker dock, but to my knowledge this is the first one that actually moves. The Bless Automatica Remote Control Car with iPod Speakers is just what it sounds like. An RC car pimped out with a pair of speakers that you can plug your iPod into.

It truly is music on the go with this iPod speaker set. Just get your music going and take it for a spin. The car can not only hold a set of speakers but can also be used as a CD holder or tray to deliver items to people via remote.

QPD speakers are motorized

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on February 26th, 2009

QPD speakers are motorizedMost speakers, though they may deliver great sound, just sit there doing nothing more than sounding off. These QPD speakers however do a little more. They’re motorized so they can do things like park themselves back into the ceiling or wall and disappear from sight.

That way when you aren’t using them, no one knows they are there. Pretty cool. And they won’t take up any extra room in your environment, while letting you add as many as you want, anywhere you want.

Posted in Coleman by Conner Flynn on February 18th, 2009

Coleman Inflatable Mattress with built-in speakersCamping used to be about getting away from technology and the hustle and bustle of everyday life. But most camping gadgets and accessories these days are designed to make sure you still take some technology with you. Like this Coleman Inflatable Mattress. It features built-in speakers, insuring that while you are being one with nature, you also are never far from your tunes.

Just plug in your iPod or CD player and listen. Coleman also makes a model with a built in alarm clock, which is pretty handy if you’ve left your cellphone at home. All of these inflatable mattresses have a 4D pump, which is battery powered and hands free for easy inflation and deflation.

Canton Reference Speakers

Canton is adding three new loudspeakers to its flagship line of Reference speakers. These new models, the Reference 5.2, 7.2 and 9.2, price for around $10,000, $7,000 and $4,000 per pair, respectively.

The Reference 5.2 and Reference 7.2 are three-way floor standing loudspeakers, and the Reference 9.2 is a two-way monitor speaker designed for pedestal mounting. Canton says these speakers are most notable for their aluminum oxide ceramic dome tweeters. This offers “a smaller dome radius and significant improvements in power handling and distortion characteristics.”

Mr. and Mrs. Radio Speakers

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on January 26th, 2009

Mr. and Mrs. Radio SpeakersThey must be newlyweds because we haven’t seen them before. Speakers or no, they’re an odd couple from Profit Charm. The pair is available in different colors. Mr. Speaker apparently has no shirt and proudly shows off his name on his chest. Mrs Speaker on the other hand wears a shirt and nothing else. So, I’m guessing they can’t make up their minds about being nudists or not.

Both speakers will work with your iPod or computer, laptop etc and they also play FM Radio. They’re powered by USB and I’m assuming their creepy faces light up.

Bowers & Wilkins announce high-end in-ceiling home theater speakers

Posted in Bowers & Wilkins by Shane McGlaun on January 22nd, 2009

Bowers & Wilkins CCM816When it comes to adding a home theater in your living room there can be several problems. The first of which is wires running around your room. You can get around some of this with wireless rear speakers, but that still leaves the second problem; namely, the unattractive design of many speakers themselves.

The choice for those who don’t want wires and don’t want to see the speakers are in-ceiling or in-wall units. Bowers & Wilkins has announced a new high-end set of in-ceiling home theater speakers. The speakers are called the CCM816 and will retail for $600 each when available in February.

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on January 12th, 2009

New high end PC speakers from SonySony introduces a new high-end PC speaker line-up with superior sound quality. The design is pretty interesting too.

The slim size Sony SRS-Z50 is a pair of speakers that feature a bass reflex duct, while the three-way SRS-Z100 speakers feature bass boost. The Sony SRS-D25 2.1 speaker system sports a subwoofer for strong bass.

iPods turned into iPod speakers

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on January 1st, 2009

iPods turned into iPod speakersCheck out this pair of iPods that have been turned into iPod speakers. The original iPod scroll wheels were removed and replaced with a pair of speakers. This particular DIY project is a bit expensive at around $100 (he needed to replace both the front and back panels since the old ones had too many scratches to count), although I don’t see why a smart shopper couldn’t do it for a bit less.

IPod speakers for an iPod. Makes sense. Let’s not go crazy though. We don’t need to see Zune speakers for Zunes and iPhone speakers for your iPhone. I’m just kidding. We love any and all clever mods, even when they get a bit redundant.

iLuv introduces 2.1 soundbar speaker system for PC

Posted in Accessories by Shane McGlaun on December 19th, 2008

iLuv iSP 200I have seen soundbars for home theater sets ups that provide good sound and a clean install look. They place speakers inside a long, slender box that is designed to sit under the TV in your living room rather than boxy speakers that are designed to stand beside the TV.

iLuv has introduced a new 2.1 speaker set for PC that looks like a soundbar. The long and slender device has a pair of speakers inside with a subwoofer. The system uses SRS-XT technology to simulate surround sound for movies and games.

DIY iPhone retro rotary dock

DIY iPhone retro rotary dockHow cool would it be to dock your iPhone in a rotary telephone while running this app. This hack turns your old rotary phone into a cool iPhone docking station. It’s sure to sound great since it has 16 Watts of speaker power hidden in the device.

It sports one speaker behind the dial on the front of the phone and two speakers in the handset itself. The IR sensor and controls are on the side of the phone and the docking port is hidden under the receiver when the hand set is off. This is a pretty awesome mod if you have a 1940′s phone laying around. Video below.

Phillips head speakers don’t require a giant screwdriver

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on December 8th, 2008

Phillips head speakers don’t require a giant screwdriverI don’t ask a lot from my speakers. They just need to produce a decent amount of sound quality and look nice really. I mean, I don’t expect them to be flat and look like they require a giant phillips head screwdriver to power them up. Anyhow, that’s what these babies look like.

They’re Kwangjo Lee’s Affordable Computer Speakers. They look pretty awesome, with great sound output. Your friends can hook into it for listening as well. It’s a neat idea, with an awesome design, but alas, its a concept at the moment. Lee has included Four mini speakers + a Woofer in the set and designed it flat, so that it would be easy to carry.
