THE BEST Speakers

Griffin AirCurve

Griffin AirCurve

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.

iLuv iSP100 Speakers

iLuv iSP100 Speakers

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.

2B Radio

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.

BEO Aston Martin Speakers

Bang & Olufsen’s saucer-shaped speakers (link: BeoLab 5) are now available in the Aston Martin DBS and DB9; each car will have two of these tweeters which retract when not in use.

JVC HXD77J

JVC’s HXD77J isn’t for the faint of heart–this monstrous boombox features separate amps for the woofers, tweeters and subs, all of it blasting 540 watts to its 4-way speakers.

Beolab 5 Speakers

Beolab 5 Speakers

Nearly five years old, Bang & Olufsen’s BeoLab 5s are still crave worthy. These Dalek-like speakers have 2500 watts on tap and sweet spots wherever you sit. Thanks, Nicole!

Boynq Wake-Up iPod Dock

The venerable boombox sticks around another year, this time with Sharp’s 250-watt CD-DK890N and CD-DK891N systems. They come with a 5-disc changer and iPod Dock.

Porsche Eton Clock Radio

Porsche Eton Clock Radio

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.

Zeppelin iPod Dock

Minigods Speakers

Alesis TransActive Mobile

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.

Logitech Squeezebox Boom

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.

Boosted Tin Can Speakers

Available September 1, these Boosted Tin Can Speakers add a bit of style to your desktop; the cans feature art from artists Mint, Serf and Mainframe; they’re battery powered.

Sonance Kayak Speakers

Sonance Kayak Speakers

Most speakers have to hide behind a black mesh, but Sonance’s Kayak speakers bare it all with two cone shaped coaxial drivers; the acoustic reflector in the middle is for accurate stereo.

CVT i3101 iPod Dock

CVT i3101 iPod Dock

There are plenty of other iPod/iPhone docks, but the CVT i3101’s wall-mounted form factor scores major style points. Also cool: FM radio; alarm clock; reads USB drives and SD flash cards.

Giant Earbud Speakers

No, it’s not a Photoshop hack–these are actual USB-powered speakers. They’re mega sized (500x larger than real iPod earbuds) and mega geeky: just the way we like things.

Sony S-Airplay

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.

Pure Evoke Flow Radio

Pure Evoke Flow Radio

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.

PICO Hybrid Radio

PICO Hybrid Radio

The PICO Hybrid Radio combines both DAB, FM and internet radio into a splash proof package. It’s powered by a rechargeable Li-ion battery, making this ideal for outdoor and bathroom use.

Orbit-MP3 Speaker

Orbit-MP3 Speaker

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.
