Rocking out in the iRock Rocking Chair recharges a connected iDevice and powers the chair'...

We’ve seen plenty of iPhone and iPad chargers that harness power from eco-friendly sources such as wind and solar (or both), but Zurich-based Micasa Lab has turned to a different, relatively (but not completely) untapped energy source to keep the juice flowing in iOS devices – the rocking chair. But the iRock Rocking Chair doesn’t just use the power generated via rocking back and forth to charge iOS devices, it also powers speakers built into the chair’s backrest.  Read More

The BeoPlay A9 is a new disc-shaped streaming wireless speaker from Bang & Olufsen subsidi...

B&O Play could be described as the hip, contemporary arm of Bang & Olufsen. That ethos is certainly reflected in the company’s soon-to-be-available streaming wireless speaker, the BeoPlay A9. Unlike traditional boxy speakers, it’s flat(ish), it’s round, and it’s designed to be looked at as much as listened to.  Read More

The Turtle Claw mounts to a bicycle's handlebars

The Outdoor Technology Turtle Shell speaker, which was announced at CES in January, is edging closer to availability. Last week, Outdoor Technology showed the model at the Interbike trade show and launched a Kickstarter campaign designed to get the speaker into cyclists' hands by next month.  Read More

The A5 (left) is quite a bit smaller than A7, as this picture shows

The audiophiles at Bowers & Wilkins have announced two brand new speakers – the A5 and A7 – that are designed to work with Apple's wireless AirPlay technology. This allows them to achieve a cleaner look due to the lack of a dock or protruding auxiliary cables. It also means you can carry your iPhone or iPad around with you and keep the music playing, provided you are within Wi-Fi range of course.  Read More

From suitcases to doughnuts and from vests to shoulder harnesses, it seems speaker design knows no bounds. London-based audio product manufacturer DBEST has provided yet another twist to the saga with its aptly named Transformative Bluetooth Hi-Fi System that can go from a circle to an elongated snake form factor with a twist and turn of its speakers.  Read More

Nokia has announced a new range of cylindrical, wireless speakers for use with its Lumia smartphones, which have been created in partnership with audio specialist JBL. The range is the first of a collaboration between the two companies and was inspired by a previous series called Play 360°, which was also cylindrical.  Read More

The ECOXBT looks slick in orange

Wouldn’t it be nice to lounge in the pool and enjoy your favorite music without risking the health and well-being of your precious mobile device? We have seen a number of waterproof MP3 players and accessories over the years, including the Speedo Aquabeat, the Fitness Technologies UWaterG2 and more recently a waterproof smartphone case with a built-in speaker, ECOXGEAR’s ECOXPRO. Until now, though, we hadn't seen a waterproof Bluetooth speaker (as opposed to water-resistant, like the iShower) like ECOXGEAR’s new ECOXBT. It allows you to listen to your favorite songs in the water while your cell phone or Bluetooth compatible MP3 player remains safely on dry land.  Read More

The 'flat boombox' - though really it's a speaker

A Master's design student from Germany has developed a concept for the audio speaker that might just hint at how the product will look in the future. In a word, it's flat.  Read More

Brothers Ezra and Alex Cimino-Hurt marry classic electronics with vintage luggage to produ...

I would hazard a guess that most readers haven't given very much thought to what happens to trusted and faithful luggage when it's retired from frequent use. If they're not exiled to the basement for storage of odds and ends, old suitcases could very well end up just being dumped in the trash. If they're lucky though, brothers Ezra and Alex Cimino-Hurt might get hold of them for conversion into stylish and powerful Case of Bass boomboxes.  Read More
