Griffin’s AirCurve is essentially a transparent display stand with a coiled waveguide within that acts as an amplifier: in short, this polycarbonate speaker doesn’t need power to operate.
Now that the iPod Touch packs its own speaker, iLuv’s battery powered iSP100 loses a bit of utility; however, it’s relatively portable and at 4W RMS (8W peak), not bad for the size and price.
David Wiener Ventures’ Art.Suono acts as a bridge between your iPod and sound system; the race-inspired system features an Engine Start button and shifter-like input signal switch.
Jonas Damon’s 2B Radio is a retro minimalist’s dream come true, with a matte black case and three vacuum tubes in place of transistors. It’ll hook up to your iPod or MP3 player, too.
Awesomest. Keyboard. Ever. NeKo’s LUX Keyboard is dipped in 24kt gold, packs 4GB RAM, a 4 Terabyte hard drive, Blu-Ray burner, 10 audio ins/outs and 100,000 preset sounds.
Ion Audio’s iCue Mixer is a compact, entry level system for those wanting to mix MP3s from their computer. We do recommend a 3.5mm Y-splitter for your headphones, however.
Apple’s iPod Touch gets a mild makeover, with a thinner, more contoured design and an external volume control. It will also get a built-in speaker and come standard with Nike + iPod.
Apple’s new Ipod Nano returns to its candybar roots and is the thinnest iPod ever. Made with curved aluminum, you can shake it to shuffle; it will come in a rainbow of nine colors.
Microsoft’s Zune mp3 player now has a glossy, 120GB version out on Amazon — also, check out the new blue 8GB version, which comes with wireless buying and games.
Porsche Design’s stylish Eton P’9210 Clock Radio has three speakers, a subwoofer, iPod dock and satellite radio hookup. Other than the odd remote, the minimalist design works.
There are iPod docks, and there’s Alesis’ TransActive Mobile: despite packing only 22 watts, this speaker is ideal for outdoor parties. No outlet? It runs on a rechargeable battery.
Sony’s Walkman S-Series is like a Zune flash with brushed metal and the same price points. The 2″ screen and 7.5mm thickness are nice, but that may change with the new Nano.
Logitech’s Squeezebox Boom answers our wi-fi prayers: it streams music from your PC, internet radio and subscription services, and packs a pair of 3″ woofers and 3/4″ tweeters.
Check out these mockups by Miguel Suarez of the next-gen iPod Nano, based on Kevin Rose’s spy shot showing a return to the candybar form factor. Rumor: it’s coming September 9th.
Cowon’s super-sexy S9 media player has a 3.3″ active matrix OLED touch screen, bluetooth and a dual-core CPU. It can play up to 40 hours of music between charges.
Sony’s sexy S-Airplay is a wi-fi iPod dock that streams music to up to ten speakers. The dock also doubles as an AM/FM radio; it can simultaneously stream your iPod and radio to separate rooms.
Getting the most out of Pure Digital’s Evoke Flow Radio will require that you live somewhere with DAB+ access (i.e., Europe), but we like that it streams music from internet radio stations.
The Sooloos Media System is a music hub: use the 17″ touchscreen to to choose tailored music “recipes”. At $13k, you can also sync up with your numerous beach houses and penthouses.
Cerulean’s F1+TX takes your iPod wireless. The F1 is a pair of stereo bluetooth headphones with 10m range, while the TX can wirelessly connect either the headphones or a dock to your iPod.
Made by gamers, for gamers: Astro Gaming’s A40 Audio System includes a MixAmp (combines voice and game sounds; 5.1 Dolby Digital) and Headset with swappable tags.
Steinway Lyngdorf’s Model D Speakers literally cost an arm and a leg, and are targeted towards (well-heeled) audio aficionados. Finishes include black lacquer, fine woods, gold and chrome.
Workaholics can take their iPhone swimming: the Amphibx Waterproof Armband protects your phone or mp3 player up to a depth of 12 feet. Two versions: medium or large.
All speaker and little else, Altec Lansing’s Orbit-MP3 speaker gets right to the point but still manages to pack in a little style. Its straightforward look comes with an equally honest price.
The Zen X-Fi MP3 player is a good value for the money, with up to 32GB, wi-fi, and a vibrant screen. Build quality leaves something to be desired, but it’s tough to beat its price point.
Hard Graft’s aesthetic jives with ours: simple and efficient. Their felt and leather pouches and wallets are geared towards specific gadgets like the iPhone, Kindle and Macbooks.
We’ve seen quite a few iPod armbands, but we like the iSkin’s DuoBand which is both moisture resistant and perforated to keep you cool. Worth noting: dual-layer Si/Al construction.
