Xpod: Tiny Speakers Fit in Your Pocket
November 14th, 2008
Want to share your music when you’re out and about? Sure, you could ask your friends to try on your crusty headphones, or you could reach into your pocket and pull out a pair of these tiny speakers.
XPod Active Sound speakers could be the smallest portable speakers I’ve seen yet. Measuring in at just 3.07″ wide x 1.34″ high x 0.33″ thick (78mm x 34mm x 8.4mm), they’re about the same size as the latest iPod Nano.
The miniature speakers offer stereo sound using a pair of tiny piezoelectric speakers powered by a 2-channel 770mW amplifier.
The Xpod has a built-in rechargeable power pack, which can be juiced up via any USB port, so you don’t have to worry about carrying batteries. A tiny slot in the back lets you stand up the speaker using your pocket change, and each Xpod comes with a matching cord so you can hang it around your neck.
The pocket-size XPod speakers are currently available only in Korea. There’s no word on if or when they’ll hit other countries.
