Jeez, in all the excitement of talking about the Creative Zen Stone Plus DAP, I completely missed that Creative also has a new mini speaker set for the player. The TravelSound Zen Stone clips on top of the ZS+ and delivers a pint-sized 0.2W per channel. As you can see, the speakers are pretty damn small, so don’t expect Gatecrasher-like (RIP, by the way) sounds. The price is right, though, hitting stores in late July for around $32. Personally, I’m one of those “go big or go home” guys, so little speakers like these don’t really do it for me. But I guess if you travel a lot or want to hold an impromptu listening session for passersby it could be worth a look.
