I’m loving the looks of the Beoplay A9 Speaker. Equipped with Airplay so you can connect wirelessly through iPhone, iPad, etc. $2600 available in the middle of November.
Doggy Radio is limited to a strict run of 3,000 pieces, and each one includes a metal dog tag with its unique edition number. In addition, each doggy comes beautifully and safely packaged custom designed container with an exclusive easy-to-follow manual illustrated by Nara himself, as well as an USB cable and a power supply with international outlet adapters for easy and convenient use.
It has built in solar panels so it can be used outside your home power-cord free! It fits a majority of iPhones and iPods but also comes with a 3.5mm audio jack so you can use it with just about anything. It goes on sale April 2010 for $2,299 and you can pre-order now with a deposit of $500 (a serious leap of faith that it sounds as good as it looks). Looks great though!
If you’re a fool for your audio gear, you probably feel entangled in wires. That jungle of insulated black and gray is slowly being diminished by wireless options for any sound system. Parrot wireless speakers utilizes WiFi and Bluetooth technology, allowing you to set up your Philippe Starck-designed speakers anywhere in the room and stay in control of the music from your computer, iPod, or any Bluetooth enabled source.
When reading a comic, the speaker is the character with a word bubble above his head. In everyday waking life our words don’t hover above our person to allow everyone within peering distance to catch our conversational content. For that, we employ another kind of speaker, the kind that blares song lyrics or comedy routines, not to mention embarrassing best man speeches we blurt into a microphone. These different definitions of the word speaker are echoed in designer Sherwood Forlee’s design concept for a speaker set. Forlee has created a pair of noiseboxes shaped like the speech surroundings of something said by Superman that just might sing the sounds of Sinatra or The Shins. Pretty awesome.
I’m a big fan of these Dragon Speakers– a design by Axelsson Design studio, founded by Joakim Axelsson in the UK. Reminiscent of Buro Vormkrijger‘s awesome Woofer Speakers, these sound-spewing hi-fi dragons are available in white (shown), red, black or made to order in a color spec you provide for a casual 1000 GBP.
Claassen & Partners created this MSKYO ‘Mama Said Knock You Out’ style iPod speakers. Nostalgic as all hell, my German is (still) rusty so I can’t tell you much about them– except that I love them. Any Germans want to offer a translation for us? I can only guess what “DEN GUTEN ALTEN GHETTOBLASTER” means. Via Reluct
