  • Review: Antec Rockus 2.1 Speakers

    Short version: Not bad, but the “3D” effect isn’t very compelling, and the lack of extra features makes the $200 price unpalatable. Read More

  • Review: TDK 3 Speaker Boombox


    Short version: Beautifully styled, modern, and very loud, but USB issues take this from a cool and functional device to a questionable one. (Update: TDK released a firmware update the day after this review published which fixes the USB issues. I installed it myself and it works perfectly; devices will ship with updated firmware starting now, and owners should be able to download the update… Read More

  • Pioneer Announces Wireless Speaker Specifically Designed For The Elderly

    Pioneer announced [JP] the VMS-700-K for the Japanese market today, a wireless speaker specifically designed for elderly people. The idea here is to place the device right next to the user when watching TV so they can adjust the volume the way they like, without potentially harassing other family members. Read More

    BMW announced today the all-new BMW 6 Series Coupé with a Bang and Olufsen sound system with 16 loudspeakers driven by 1,200 watts of power.

  • Logitech Releases Their New Flagship 5.1 System, The Z906

    All of us at CrunchGear can testify that Logitech makes solid audio gear. The Z623s are a good deal, the G35 headset is a monster, and Greg says he’s been using the Z5500 5.1 system happily for several years now. Well, Logitech’s new Z906 is meant to replace that last one: it’s a brand-new 500-watt 5.1 system selling for the totally reasonable price of $350 not quite as… Read More

  • Review: Razer Ferox Portable Speakers


    Short version: These tiny speakers are more powerful than you’d think, but still not quite capable enough for anything but casual use around the house. Gamers at the very least will be disappointed, though they’re handy for the occasional TV show or spontaneous music-sharing moment. Read More

  • Krator Desktop Speakers Inspired By Sydney Opera House

    Distinctive yet tasteful desktop speakers are hard to come by; I was always slightly jealous of my Mac friends and their cool Harmon Kardon Soundsticks (not that they were only for Mac, but you know what I mean), since the best PC speakers from Logitech and Klipsch have always been… not ugly, certainly, but not stylish, either.

  • Thodio iBox Is A Cute And Customizable iPod Dock

    These cute little robot looking speakers are actually the Thodio iBox iPod speaker docks. The obscure looking docks offer several customizable features for your ideal setup. Read More

  • Magna's AcoustiVision Turns Rear-Windows Into Subwoofers

    A new technology called AcoustiVision hopes to put some Boom Boom Pow into your rear window. All car subwoofers rattle the entire car — rear window included — but Magna says their technology can use the rear window to make sound. AcoustiVision uses two exciters at the base of the window with power fed from amps in the trunk, which are said to boost a stereo signal from 12 to 200 volts. Read More

  • "Ultrasonic" Klang Speaker Concept Only Produces Sound Where Your Head Is

    I’m not quite sure I buy the physics behind these speakers entirely. The idea is that instead of simply vibrating a driver at the correct frequencies and projecting those vibrations out into the room, you use ultrasonic waves to vibrate only the air molecules along a path, and things outside of that path won’t hear the sound.
