Speakers Not Worth the Paper They’re Printed on

by Paul Strauss

Now I’ve seen some cheap speakers in my days, but even the chintziest ones I’ve seen were at least made out of plastic. Not these. These ones are fabricated from thick paper stock.

Xenics Music Cube M speakers offer up some truly low-fidelity sound thanks to their flimsy cardboard construction. Heck, they don’t even come assembled. You have to carefully fold the paper boxes and insert all the little tabs to but them together.

Once complete, they’re not likely to crank out much, since they’re not even amplified. You simply plug them in to your MP3 player’s headphone jack, and that’s all the power you’ll get. All that, and a frequency response range that’s probably not much better than your typical cordless phone.

If you’re really dying for the novelty of paper speakers, you’ll need to do a little translation, since it looks they’re only currently available in Korea.

    ooh – i bet those super thin cheap plastic records that you had to place a quarter on so it wouldn’t fall off the turntable from burger king in the seventies would ROCK HARD on these paper speakers.

    i can imagine blasting firefall’s “strange way” now – gotta go look on ebay – see ya.

    I got speakers just like this from a job fair. The only difference was that they were green and sad ‘Geico’ on the sides. Do you have recommendations on how to improve them?
