    Thodio iBox Is A Cute And Customizable iPod Dock

    Review: Eton Soulra Charges Your Soul

    Short Version: The Eton Soulra is a nice portable iPod/iPhone radio that often found its way into my bag when leaving the house. I carried it around during summer night bike rides in Ann Arbor and took it to the hot southern sun in Myrtle Beach, SC. Even though it’s solar powered, it remains versatile and compact enough to take wherever.

  • iLuv iPod alarm clock includes speaker-equipped bed-shaking puck

    iLuv iPod alarm clock includes speaker-equipped bed-shaking puck

    It sounds weirder than it is. Eh – no, it’s about that weird, I guess. Being a light sleeper, I wake up when a butterfly flaps its wings outside my window, but I can understand how some of you heavy sleepers out there might need a serious noise to return to the land of the living. Or, in this case, a vibrating pillow. iLuv’s got a new alarm clock, essentially a fancier version… Read More

  • CrunchDeals: iPod car dock with remote for $13

    CrunchDeals: iPod car dock with remote for $13

    Here’s an inexpensive iPod car kit from Meritline. Normally almost $20, it’s being sold at $12.99 with free shipping. The “6-in-1 Car Kit w/Remote Control for iPod” features an LED display for FM channel selection, cigarette lighter power plug, and remote control. I’m not huge on FM transmitters, but mostly because they always seem more expensive than… Read More

  • Review: Otterbox Armor Series iPod Touch case

    Review: Otterbox Armor Series iPod Touch case

    The Otterbox Armor Series iPod Touch case is waterproof, dustproof, dirtproof, sandproof, and drop-proof while at the same time allowing access to most of the Touch’s functions. While the extra added bulk might scare some people off, those who need maximum protection at a not-too-shabby price will appreciate this case. Read More

  • Shampoo? Check. Conditioner? Check. iPod? Check.

    Shampoo? Check. Conditioner? Check. iPod? Check.

    I’m not a huge listen-to-music-in-the-shower person but I’ve had bathroom speakers rigged up in various ways over the years, just in case the mood hits. This new doodad looks cool and it’s certainly an interesting take on waterproof music but it might be more trouble than it’s worth unless you plan on leaving your iPod inside the tube permanently. It’s made by… Read More

  • Groping the Griffin Journi

    Groping the Griffin Journi


    Griffin’s new Journi portable iPod speaker is hands-down the hippest-looking iPod speaker I’ve seen yet: It’s about the size of a woman’s handbag, and it comes cradled in its built-in black leather fold-around case/stand, but it’s just 1.5 inches thick and just over 2 pounds. The sound isn’t much better than you’d expect from such a slim speaker… Read More

  • DLO's HomeDock Music Remote Review

    DLO's HomeDock Music Remote Review


    When I initially saw the DLO HomeDock Music Remote ($130), I had high expectations based on the company’s earlier success with iPod docks. This one comes with a fancy remote that lets you browse and control your iPod on a tiny LED screen. The effect is kind of like carrying around a smaller and less functional version of your iPod to control the real thing, which charges and plays… Read More

  • TerraTec Electronic Noxon 2: An iPod Dock+Radio With Built-in Wi-Fi

    TerraTec Electronic Noxon 2: An iPod Dock+Radio With Built-in Wi-Fi

    It’s been a while since I’ve written about any sort of iPod speaker, but TerraTec Electronic’s Noxon 2’s attempt to be all things to all people is worth a mention. This little guy has a built-in iPod dock (duh!), Wi-Fi and FM radio. It’s also got USB ports so you can connect external hard drives and the like. The Wi-Fi is used to connect to Internet radio… Read More

  • Magic Fingers Hold Your Gear Safely

    Though it looks less like a dashboard gadget holder and more like a Japanese pervert’s honeymoon bed, the Dashboard Gadget Holder appears as if it will do what it’s supposed to, holding your gear within easy reach, yet keeping it from flying everywhere. As a guy who handles many gadgets at the same time while driving (iPod, Treo, Supermodel), I find the idea of letting these fingers… Read More

  • iWoofer Is Out Of This World


    I can’t quite put my finger on it, but the iWoofer looks like a cross between a gremlin and some Japanese anime. Aside from its unique looks, it packs a combination of a downward-firing subwoofer, tiny titanium drivers and an FM radio, making it a sure-fire hit in the saturated iPod-accessory world. With an elevated setting you can watch your videos and see the pretty blue lights… Read More

  • Denon Launches Headphone Line

    As if there already weren’t a ton of premium headphone options on the market, home-theater and audio-electronics maker Denon introduced five new models. Priced from $50 to $700, they are the first consumer-oriented headphones from the company. Styles include canal phones like the $200 AH-C700 (pictured, available in black or silver) and high-end over-the-ear models, such as the $700… Read More

  • George: An Intelligent iPod Speaker Dock


    We wrote about Chestnut Hill Sound’s George iPod speaker dock back at the beginning of the month. Our review unit arrived today, so we decided to pop the box open and take some shots. There are a handful of features that separate George from the rest of the speaker-dock herd. Click below to see more pictures and learn about what makes this system so different. Read More

  • Griffin Evolve Really Is Wireless


    If you feel like dropping $350 on an iPod dock than Griffin’s new Evolve is it. The Evolve consists of a dock that also charges, RF remote, and two rechargeable dual channel wireless speakers. Said speakers are said to work up to 150 feet away, wish they’d prove it at CES. Pretty cool since everything is wireless. Product Page Read More

  • New iPod Speaker System Has An Outie


    Those in the market for a higher-end iPod sound system will want to check out the $549 George, the first product to roll out from digital-audio manufacturer Chestnut Hill Sound. One of the edges it has on other systems is its unique wireless remote, which has a full-on knob for navigating your iPod’s menus on its high-resolution, backlit graphic display. You can use it to select music… Read More

  • iPod Death Watch


    Bummed when your iPod shows that yucky Mac face and you’ve gotta go dish out another few hundred dollars for a new one? Aren’t we all! iPodMechanic has released a fun lil app cleverly named the iPod Death Clock to tell you when your iPod is going to bite the dust. While this may not be completely accurate it’s pretty amusing and it’s like playing Russian roulette… Read More

  • Bad Idea #3,565: RWC NeoTune Headphones

    Wow, the person that green-lit the production of the $43 NeoTune Headphones should be fired toot sweet. I’m all for the elimination of cords, but putting an iPod nano dock on the side of a set of bulky full-size headphones is not the way to do it. And I’m pretty sure if you walked down the street of a major metropolitan area wearing these, it would result in pointing and… Read More

  • iFrogz To Open Mall Kiosks Around The US

    iFrogz To Open Mall Kiosks Around The US

    Personally, I think iFrogz makes some of the best cases for the iPod today. You can customize the living hell out of them, the price isn’t too exorbitant, and they have speedy shipping and excellent customer service. Well they must be doing something right, because today iFrogz announced it would be opening 15 new kiosks in malls around the US to sell their cases at. They’ll be… Read More

  • Quit Shoving: Sonnet Retools iFreq Dock For 2G Nano


    As you may or may not know, when Apple updated the iPod Nano to the 2G version, it shifted the dock connector ever so slightly, making a large number of first-gen Nano accessories incompatible with the new models. Sure you could push and shove and pull to get some things to kinda fit, but not everything. Well, Sonnet Technologies accounced today that the cradle, included with its iFreq… Read More

    O'Neill H3 Campack Is The Coolest Backpack

    Hardcore snowboarders are much cooler than you. Get over it. They stomp you in every conceivable way. Now, they have one more tool. The H3 Campack from O’Neill is everything you need to be plugged in while on the slopes. This backpack has controls on it that can be plugged into your DV cam, iPod and Bluetooth phone.
