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.

Sound Cloud: Interactive Cloud Lamp Speaker

storm-lamp-speaker

It’s raining beats. Well, sort of. That man-made cloud up there might loos like an art installation of some sort, but it’s actually an interactive lamp and speaker. Its name? Yep, you guessed it: Cloud. Designed by Richard Clarkson, the Cloud reacts to nearby movement and lights up to the beat of the music that you’re playing.

Put Icona Pop on and turn out the lights, and you’ve got a thunderstorm of a completely different sort, right there in your room.

This smart little creative lamp is replete with lights, motion sensors, microphones, and a powerful speaker system. A remote control allows user to set it to different modes, getting it to act like a simple thunder cloud, to respond to movements in its surroundings, or to respond to sounds or music that it hears around it.

Light It Up: This Bluetooth Speaker Runs on Fire Power

Pelty Speaker

Pelty is literally the hottest thing to happen to speakers since, well, ever. We say “literally” because it runs purely on firepower provided by a lone candle burning from within. Its design is sleek and simple but eye-catching all the same. Pelty hooks up with your smartphone or music player via Bluetooth and uses absolutely no electricity to play your choice tunes.

Pelty has a built-in thermoelectric generator that converts the candle’s thermal energy into electricity. And in case you’re worried about the speaking catching fire, don’t be, because it’s made from a ceramic material (because its creators are smart enough to consider that angle, that’s for sure.)

Paper Speaker is Feather-Light But Offers Heavyweight Sound

Paper Speaker1

 

Get ready for some sweet sounds the next time you step into a room and see this. No, that’s not a paper fan or some flimsy-looking decor. That’s actually the Phonon Kamome and it’s a speaker made from paper. It’s shaped in the form of a feather and the cool part is that it’s feather light too, weighing in at only 129 grams.

So how does it work? The Phonon Kamome uses micro vibrations technology between the paper to generate sound. It’s connected to an amplifier with an output connection, which you can use to hook the speaker up to your MP3 player or phone/

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.

iRecorder iPhone Speaker: Play New Beats With a Vintage Vibe

iRecorder

 

Remember those vintage recorders that you used to carry around way back when they were the hottest gadgets around? Digital music players and smartphones have rendered them obsolete, but they’re about to make a comeback in a roundabout sort of way.

The iRecorder Speaker is a handy speaker that’s compatible with the iPhone 4, 4S, and 5. It sports that vintage recorder look on the outside, but it won’t be able to play your old cassette tapes. However, it will be able to play the tunes on your phone. Just pop your mobile into the cassette slot and push down the orange play button.

The iRecorder comes with a pull-out carry handle and a USB charging cord. It can be powered by a micro USB or batteries, just like your old recorder. It’s available online for $50.

Timbre: They’re More Than Just Glass Bowls–They’re Actually Speakers

Glass Bowl Speakers

“What’s a bunch of glass bowls doing in the game room?”, someone might ask.
“Those aren’t just bowls,” you might answer. “That’s actually a speaker.”

That’s a hypothetical conversation that you might have with someone if: (a) you actually had the Timbre Speakers and (b) if you actually had a game room. These unusual speakers were created by designer Casey Lin and they’re obviously unlike your typical speakers.

All the electronic components are hidden from view inside the box, including the surface transducers that vibrate the box, in effect turning it into the actual speaker. The glass bowls, which are set on top of the box, are instrumental in the design as well, since they amplify the sound from the box and function as physical equalizers, too.

OhGizmo! Review – Jawbone JAMBOX

Jawbone JAMBOX (Image property OhGizmo!)
By Andrew Liszewski

I’ve found there’s a simple rule of thumb when it comes to finding a set of compact, portable speakers that don’t sound like they’re made of cardboard. And it’s a rule that everyone is already familiar with; you get what you pay for. So let’s get this out of the way right now. Aliph’s Jawbone JAMBOX portable Bluetooth speaker is not cheap. In fact, let’s not beat around the bush here. At $199.99 I’d say it easily qualifies as expensive.

That being said though, it’s also easily one of the best sounding portable speakers I’ve ever heard. And while it obviously can’t compete with even a half-decent home stereo setup, if you’ve been hunting for something that’s easy to transport and sounds great, I think you’ll be suitably impressed by what Aliph has cooked up. Read my complete review after the jump.
