Deal of The Day: 25% Off On the New Soundfreaq Double Spot

Soundfreaq Double Spot

The new Soundfreaq Double Spot has most of what you’re looking for in a speaker: it’s portable, simple yet classy, and gives you award-winning sound quality. The speaker’s two custom-designed stereo drivers were positioned slightly outward in order to optimize sound projection and stereo separation. You won’t be able to tell just by looking at the speaker, but the sound should speak (or play) volumes.

The Double Spot comes with a built-in rechargeable battery (which makes it perfect for road trips and beach outings) and can be charged via USB. It works with Bluetooth-compatible devices and comes with a line-in option, too, for your non-Bluetooth players. The speaker is normally priced at $150, but it’s currently on sale at $112.

Telephoto MegaFon Loudspeaker Lets You “Yell” at One Person Only

Telephoto MegaFon

So near, yet so far. You might be able to see the person you want to talk to, but the din of the outside world won’t allow him to hear your voice. That and the fact that what you want to keep your message private makes yelling out of the question. Addressing this first world problem is Fuji Xerox.

After a lot of detailed R&D, they’ve created the Telephoto Megafon which is basically a targeted megaphone of sorts. The 3D-printed gadget will let the user “speak” to someone far away by simply pointing the Megafon towards that person.

Thinklabs Updates The Stethoscope With Tech

Screen Shot 2014-06-04 at 11.58.23 AM

You guys ever notice that doctors are using stethoscope technology that dates back almost 200 years? Not that there’s anything really wrong with it, and there’s no need to re-invent the wheel, but in this case, Thinklabs may definitely be on to something. The One is their version of what a modern stethoscope should be, and it’s packed with features. Aside from amplifying sounds up to 100 times, the smartphone-connected device lets physicians filter the audio for “for low, midrange or higher frequencies, as well as for S3, valves and murmurs, and lung sounds. Filter out ambient noise frequencies.” This lets physicians focus on specific characteristics that they’re looking for and potentially arrive at a diagnostic faster and more accurately.

The fact that The One is connected to a smartphone also means your doctor is able to record the audio from your chest or abdominal cavity for later analysis or even just for archival. It’s used by connecting to some high-end headphones, either the ones provided by the company, or your own. Yes, that does mean that your doctor could one day listen to your heart while sporting some Beats. Matter of fact, the company has a Beats package in case you don’t already have your own. It’s $500 for the device only (with regular high-quality earbuds), or $800 for the Beats package.

Small Speaker, Great Sound: Aiia Ssssspeaker

Aiia Ssssspeaker

 

Big sound, small speakers. That’s probably what best describes the Aiia Ssssspeaker. At first glance, the speaker with the unusual name doesn’t really look like much of a speaker. In fact, it probably looks more like a hockey puck when it’s not in use. But pull the collapsible cone out from the base of the speaker and get ready to get lost in your favorite tunes.

One major downside? Aiia isn’t built with Bluetooth so you won’t be able to hook it up with your music player or smartphone wirelessly; instead, you’ll have to hook it up via the 3.5mm auxiliary port.
