Nintendo Ds Lite Sound Shell Adds Thump, Thickness

Nintendo Ds Lite Sound Shell Adds Thump, Thickness
The Nintendo DS Lite might be the most successful portable gaming console ever, but it won’t win any awards for pumping out lots of volume. This add-on snaps around your trusty DS Lite and gives it a serious boost in the audio department. Gametech’s Sound Shell DLite adds on bigger amplified speakers to your DS Lite, but also adds some significant bulk in order to house the larger speakers and a battery compartment to power them. The DLite isn’t just about sound.

IPod Earbuds for Giants [Speakers]
You’ve gotta love these speakers that look like giant iPod earbuds. Unless your last name Bunyon or your first name is Green, these jumbo earphones will have to sit on your desktop instead of in your ears. Part of the new lineup of whimsical products from Fred & Friends, these gargantuan earbud speakers are sure to draw looks sitting there alongside your laptop.

Moonlight Speakers Project Sound and Light

Moonlight Speakers Project Sound and Light
At first glance, you’d look at these pictures and think that these were some pretty cool lighting fixtures. You’d be right. But in addition to casting a warm glow, these illuminated orbs are actually speakers. Moonlight’s light globes conceal speakers which can handle from 120 to 200 watts of amplification — more than enough to pack some serious punch.

Skull Speakers: How Jack Sparrow Listens to His iPod

Skull Speakers: How Jack Sparrow Listens to His iPod
Taking a page out of The Pirates of the Carribean, these speakers look like something you might find lying around in Davy Jones’ Locker at the bottom of the sea. These skulls may look olde and crusty(e?),

Bubblegum Sequencer Chews Through Tunes

Bubblegum Sequencer Chews Through Tunes
This music sequencer takes the same basic interface concept as the ball bearing sequencer I recently showed you, and makes it deliciously chewable. Instead of shiny metal spheres, this sequencer uses a bunch of colorful candy-coated gumballs to make a beat you can dance to.   Designed by Hannes Hesse, Andrew McDiarmid and Rosie Han – students at UC Berkeley’s School of Information, the Bubblegum Sequencer identifies the locations of strategically-placed gumballs to create rhythm tracks.

Belkin Podcast Studio Adds Recording to Ipods

Belkin Podcast Studio Adds Recording to Ipods
I don’t know what’s gotten into Belkin lately. All of a sudden, they’re cranking out devices that not only deliver on functionality, but that look really, really good. One of their latest releases is the Belkin Podcast Studio, which adds a complete audio recording studio to your iPod for under $100. The gizmo attaches to your iPod, adding full recording capabilities, including dual XLR and 1/4-inch channels, so you can hook up just about any microphone or audio source you’d like.

Jvc Dual iPod Dock for Conjoined Twins

Jvc Dual iPod Dock for Conjoined Twins
Whether you’re literally joined at the hip to your brother or sister, or you and your significant other are just inseparable, have I got an iPod dock for you. I guess that JVC has decided that the market for the multiple iPod household is growing enough to warrant the creation of this two-headed beast. The NX-PN7 is capable not only of docking and charging two iPods simultaneously, but you can decide which one you want to play your tunes from.

Tiny Cube Speaker Offers Big Sound (for Ants)

Tiny Cube Speaker Offers Big Sound (for Ants)
Being a fan of big, multi-speaker room-filling sound systems, I find it strange that I’m captivated by this miniature speaker. This tiny 1-inch cube speaker is so small that you can easily keep it in your pocket. The minuscule speaker has a built-in rechargeable lithium battery which will give you about 4 hours of play time on a single charge from your computer’s USB port.

Mstation Theaterbar: Surround Slims Down

Mstation Theaterbar: Surround Slims Down
I was over on the mStation website recently, when I stumbled across this interesting new sound system buried under “coming soon”. It looks like the mStation TheaterBar will soon join the ranks of one-box home theater sound systems, designed to mesh beautifully with today’s flat-screen televisions. From the looks of the photos, the TheaterBar appears to offer not only a complete surround experience in a single slim box, it looks like it’s got bass ports on the back, so maybe it’ll have a decent low-end too.

Wooden Ladybug Speaker Spreads Its Wings

Wooden Ladybug Speaker Spreads Its Wings
At first glance, you wouldn’t think this hat-box shaped container would be a sound system, but it is. The cylindrical wooden box conceals compact stereo speakers perfect for your computer or media player. Volume and power controls are concealed beneath a set of flaps reminiscent of a ladybug’s wings, but they can be used in the closed position thanks to perforations in the wings.

Speakers Not Worth the Paper They’re Printed on

Speakers Not Worth the Paper They’re Printed on
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.

U27 Space Capsule Media Player Splashes Down

U27 Space Capsule Media Player Splashes Down
With a name like U27, this all-in-one desktop audio system may sound like some sort of old German submarine, but its looks are clearly inspired more by Apollo 13 than by Das Boot. The system combines both an MP3 player and a compact speaker system in a single conical device.

Step Into the Audio Spotlight

Step Into the Audio Spotlight
These ceiling mounted speakers from Holosonic Research precisely direct a beam of sound so it can only be heard if you’re standing directly inside the focused area they project. Their square Audio Spotlight speakers easily mount in place of standard 2′ x 2′ ceiling tiles and project a perfectly focused tunnel of sound towards the people standing beneath them.

Santa Claus iPod Speakers: Ho Ho Hum

Santa Claus iPod Speakers: Ho Ho Hum
I saw these ridiculous looking speakers over on 7Gadgets and just had to give them a mention. The perfect accompaniment to your sequined Christmas sweater, these goofy speakers let you listen to your favorite holiday tunes emanating from the O-shaped mouth of of good old Saint Nick. Personally, I think they remind me more of the Travelocity gnome than Santa, but who am I to question?
