Harion Glass Speakers for $168,000

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on November 30th, 2008

Harion Glass Speakers for $168,000If you are looking to drop a ton of dough on speakers, it should probably be on speakers that you won’t drop and shatter in a million pieces. These Harion speakers are made of Heat-resistant glass and are pretty sweet looking despite their fragile nature. They’ll cost you $168,000.

You get a center speaker, a sub woofer, a couple of tweeters and mid-range speakers. It took three years, eight months and 23 subcontractors to dekiver a finished product. Which probably explains the cost. No word on what they sound like, but we have an idea. We’re guessing they sound like any other glass that’s ever hit the floor, followed by you weeping and wondering why, dear God, why did you have to pay so much for something so fragile?

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on November 20th, 2008

Roll-up mouse pad with USB hub & speakersToday’s mice don’t really need a fancy mousepad, but many of us like to have one for our home PC. And this one is pretty convenient. First, it rolls up so you can get it out of your way when it’s not needed, more importantly it features a 4-port USB hub and dual speakers. Obviously it’s made cheap, but it sure would come in handy during travel. For $22 you really can’t go wrong.

SpongeBob iPod Dock: The stuff of Nickelodeon nightmares

Posted in iPod Accessories by Conner Flynn on November 18th, 2008

SpongeBob iPod Dock: The stuff of Nickelodeon nightmaresI’ve been thinking on it for awhile and I just can’t think of anything more disturbing then this Spongebob Squarepants iPod dock. Mostly the problem is that you remove his large eyeballs and watch them roll around on the table in time with whatever music you play. It’s made more disturbing by the fact that he doesn’t even have a face, just the fleshy part around the eyes. That’s all you get. Don’t buy your kids this monstrosity, unless you like your kid waking up from mutant cartoon nightmares every night, complete with music. Video below.

Best Buy’s holiday gift cards are also speakers

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on November 11th, 2008

Best Buy’s holiday gift cards are also speakersBest Buy isn’t content to let Target get away with unique gift cards this holiday season. That’s why their gift cards for the holidays will double as speakers with a 3.5mm hookup. This way you can rock out while contemplating what to buy with your card.

Is it gimmicky? Sure. Will suckers fall for it? Enough will bite to make them happy they thought of it. And if it takes batteries like Target’s new gift card/camera, they might really make out great. The question is, how muc does it cost them to produce these cards? Bottom line, even though it’s gimmicky, it beats a wool shirt from grandma. Check out a cheesy video below.

Headphonies are cute 3 inch portable speakersIf you need some friends for your desk to help you crank out the tunes, check these little guys out. These limited edition Headphonies are cute and eye-catching. The set includes 5 figures created by different artists and 2 blank versions that you can do up yourself any way you like.

You might expect that the sound wouldn’t be too good with such little speakers, but people who have heard them are saying that they are “surprisingly good.” Each vinyl speaker will be sold in 500 to 1000 limited quantities beginning on November 30th. Thankfully, they won’t break the bank at only $30 apiece

Jean-Michel Jarre’s retro iPod Speakers

Posted in iPod Accessories by Conner Flynn on October 22nd, 2008

Jean-Michel Jarre’s retro iPod SpeakersThere are a million eye-catching iPod accessories, but this one manages to stand out nicely. This odd looking iPod dock/speaker combo is from designer Jean-Michel Jarre and resembles something you would charge your lightsaber in that also doubles as a heater. It’s called the AeroSystem, retro in name and design.

It’s currently available only in France, and costs about $580, complete with an iPod-inspired remote. Seems to me that it’s more of a suicide station for when your iPod hears about the state of the economy or that Apple has released a new model. Stationed high atop it’s high-rise, it is free to make the decision to jump or not jump.

Sirius SUB-X2 Boombox image leaked

Sirius SUB-X2 Boombox image leakedImages of an upcoming Sirius Boombox, the SUB-X2, were leaked on Monday. It obviously resembles the SUB-X1 boombox, with a front-panel headphone jack, auxiliary input that will allow users to plug in their personal MP3 players and non universal docking Sirius radios. We can also expect some other refinements with the X2. There isn’t any info on features, but it should retail for about $100.

Un-bear-ably cute notebook speakers

Bear Dolls Laptop SpeakersWhen I buy speakers or other gadgets for my computer, I like them to look like speakers. Some people out there obviously feel differently and like to buy stuff that doesn’t look like it is supposed to look. I guess the fad all started with the nanny cams years ago that looked like stuffed animals.

If you need a set of speakers for your notebook, desktop or MP3 player that look like cuddly stuffed bears, you are in luck. This set of speakers has one brown bear and a white bear that each houses a speaker with 2W of power each.

Trace Audio Helmet with speakers

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on October 8th, 2008

Trace Audio Helmet with speakersIf you’re in the market for a helmet that will protect your head while pumping out the tunes, the R.E.D. Protection Trace Audio Helmet features DJ-quality low profile-speakers. It can connect to your iPod or other Mp3 player.

The helmet itself features an injected ABS shell, removable Goggle Clip, removable Goggle Gasket, and front vent plugs. And it’s not stylish at all for $90, though it does come in black or white. Hopefully having speakers in your helmet won’t distract you enough to land you in the hospital, but if does at least you’ll have tunes while waiting on the ambulance.

Klipsch, Best Buy team on new speakers

Posted in Speakers by Nino Marchetti on October 8th, 2008


Best Buy is teaming with home audio speaker manufacturer Klipsch to distribute exclusively a line of the latter’s speakers. It is the latest five-model Icon V Series and prices range from around $280 to $950.

The Klipsch Icon V Series consists of two floorstanders (VF-36 and VF-35) and single bookshelf (VB-15), center channel (VC-25) and surround (VS-14) models. These speakers were developed in part based upon feedback from Best Buy’s employees and customers about wanting “superior, value-priced sound in the lifestyle speaker category.”

Midnight Mexico Minigod speakers

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on October 5th, 2008

Midnight Mexico Minigod speakersWe told you about the Minigod speakers awhile back. They’re an excellent way to worship sound and should you have a spare virgin or two lying about, they will gladly accept sacrifices. Not that you can actually find a virgin. More likely you’ll have to get yourself a small volcano to complete the theme. Marka27 is back with some new Minigod speakers. A limited edition of the Midnight Mexico Minigod speaker.

These are 2 inches taller then the originals at 17 inches tall. The MG2 will cost you $119.95 and even comes with a bonus mix CD by DJ Plan B. Your Minigod even sports an external AC adapter port so you can play music without batteries. They come in a limited edition of only 200, so get ‘em fast.

Altec Lansing’s Moondance GLOW: the new iPod speaker system of choice for hip hippies

Posted in Speakers by Nino Marchetti on September 10th, 2008

Altec Lansing inMotion Moondance GLOW

One of Altec Lansing’s newest digital audio docking speaker systems is the inMotion Moondance GLOW. This hippie-sounding bedroom system will cost you around $180 when it emerges from a cloudy haze in October.

The Moondance GLOW is called as such because you can choose a color and intensity and then project it onto the wall. It is a strange feature but, if it gets you some bedroom action, so be it. Besides lighting the night bedroom sky, this compact digital player-plus-alarm clock has two 3-inch full-range drivers to produce sound and a dock for your favorite compatible iPod.

New Altec Lansing speaker system looks cool

Altec Lansing Expressionist BASS (FX3022)

Altec Lansing is giving itself a face lift today, unveiling a fresh logo and some interesting new products. One of these is the new Expressionist BASS desktop speaker system, priced around $130.

The Expressionist BASS system is what is called the industry’s first 2.2 desktop speaker system. Altec Lansing deems it such because the speaker housings host dual down-firing, radiating subwoofers built into each base. These 4-inch long throw subwoofers radiate sound off hard surfaces and reflect audio in a 360-degree field. They are teamed as well with two 1½” (40mm) drivers for mid- and high- frequencies.

A new spin on sound: Sphere sound system

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on September 8th, 2008

A new spin on sound: Sphere sound systemIt’s still a concept, but the latest Sphere Sound System rocks it’s name. Obviously aliens are designing gadgets on this planet. The entire music system is round, not just the speakers. It is copletely and utterly spherical. Even those backwards tin hat wearing believers that the Earth is flat can not deny the roundness of this thing. Plus every piece is designed with maximum function in mind.

The subwoofer has the largest speaker and the speaker cone is flanked by two tri-channel speakers, which can be used as a 2.1 surround-sound system. The holes on the sides of the speakers are not ears, but allow deeper vibrating sounds out, which helps to generate ultra deep bass. Every sound is emphasized in the spheres. When using the unit, the main function buttons and the drive glow green. When it’s off, the power button glows red. The LCD screen also glows as the system plays music. Not only is it super functional, but just look at the decorative statement it makes.
