Wooden Speakers Put a Hex on Your iPod

by Paul Strauss

Tired of the same old speaker designs? Here’s some compact speakers with a decidedly different look. These Microbon speakers are have a hexagonal case design which is certainly unusual.

Microbon Hex Wooden Speakers

Instead of a typical cheap plastic case, these speakers have cheap wooden cases. While I’m certainly not going to say that 5mm thick MDF is the sturdiest construction material, I’d bet these wooden speaker enclosures produce a more pleasing sound than most plastic ones. They have a built-in 4W per channel amplifier, and come with an A/C adapter for power. They’ll also run off of USB power or on a rechargeable battery when traveling.

The compact speakers come in a natural brown ($18.55 USD) or a black painted finish ($15.47 USD). I’m not sure why the unfinished (MP-660) model is more expensive than the painted (MP-600) model, although it looks like the speaker elements on the brown ones might be a little larger. Microbon is also showing these in a couple of additional finishes if you can manage to track them down for purchase anywhere.
