This speaker equipped-backpack is like a hipster version of those boom boxes everyone hated 30 years ago.
Here’s something to add to the list of things you probably didn’t think you needed: bendable, rollable speakers.
Back in the old days, if you wanted to take your music to go, you shouldered a giant boombox and went. But kids today are spoiled and have a bevy of pint-sized options at their disposal. Whether they're picnicking in the park, laying out at the beach or hanging out with friends, they can easily pull out a compact Bluetooth speaker from their bag to belt out their favorite tunes. Since Jawbone introduced the Jambox in 2010, we've seen an explosion in the portable speaker market, with more options for mobile music than ever before. To help you wade through the choices, we're going hand-on with six Bluetooth speakers.
These days we have speakers the size ofcredit cards. With every new update to things we get smaller, sleeker models. Well here's a twist — for these interesting speakers, updating doesn't necessarily mean a newer or sleeker. Tombox speakers have been "re-styled" by taking older speaker models and updating the insides instead changing the outsides.
More speakers are always, always better. And why stop and two, or five, or ten, when you could have twelve of them all folded together and blasting one single channel out of an omnidirectional 3D-printed dodecahedron housing that you can make yourself for under a hundred bucks.
I know a lot of people who have made their own speakers, and for most of them the hardest part was making a decent enclosure. Damir Paco got inspired on a trip to Ikea, and bought three salad bowls per speaker to make this attractive design.
Guys, while you're waiting for that miracle contraceptive shot to make its way to the U.S. from India, you might want to try taking your testicles to a really loud ultrasonic concert, since according to a new study, ultrasonic blasts might lower your sperm count enough to make you temporarily infertile.
Outrageously expensive speakers are nothing new to us here at Dvice, but normally they aren't the kind of thing you mount inside the wall. In wall speakers are usually kind of wimpy, but not these monsters from California Audio Technology that go for $110,000 per speaker.
A lot of audiophiles love flat panel speakers, but good luck getting your significant other to accept a couple of huge monoliths sitting in the living room. Now one of America's oldest high-end speaker companies has a solution.
You've probably heard tons of NFC news and how it'll revolutionize your wallet, but Nokia's Play 360 portable speaker thinks outside of the box: it uses proximity to activate wireless sound syncing. Cables be damned, this is the future of audio.
