Star Wars Stormtrooper speaker helmet arrives in October

There is a Bluetooth R2-D2 speaker inbound, but if you feel it doesn't properly channel your imperial side, another wireless Star Wars speaker has surfaced -- one in the shape of a stormtrooper's helmet.

Drifter speaker is buoyant, plays music sans smartphone

Drifter speaker is buoyant, plays music sans smartphone

Portable speakers come in many varieties, and if you have average needs you'll probably find a model that meets your requirements, or most of them. If one of your requirements is a speaker that can hold and play your music directly, though, finding an adequate option becomes harder. Add in ruggedness and buoyancy, and the options dwindle to almost nothing. Thusly enters the Drifter, an oddly shaped speaker that you can knock into the water without risk of ruin, and that plays your music without a smartphone.

If the rugs, the wall-mounted heads, the knife block, the desk vacuum, and others aren’t enough, later this month ThinkGeek will be launching an exclusive wireless speaker designed to look like R2-D2's head. As far as replicas go, the speaker looks quite similar to the movie rendition, and it even glows. With a twist of one of its knobs, however, the little droid head starts playing music.

Inateck has recently launched a trio of new speakers, one of which is the Inateck MarsBox BP2002 wireless speaker. The market has no shortage of wireless speakers, and so finding a way to stand out is imperative. Inateck managed to do that with its unusual, minimalist and vaguely LEGO-like design. The MarsBox features what appears to be two different angular components fused together at offset angles, forming a puzzle-like arrangement joined by four atypical buttons reminiscent of older gamepads.

Harman has introduced its new JBL Flip 3, a cylindrical portable speaker that updates the product line. The speaker is said to offer “powerful sound” despite its diminutive size, and it is splash proof, which enables it to operate in places where it is subjected to moderate water exposure (it can be cleaned under the tap, says Harman). Other improvements over the JBL Flip 2 speakers include “richer bass” and better overall audio quality via the use of dual passive radiators. The speaker will start shipping later this week.

Sonos unveils PLAY:1 Tone limited edition speaker

Audio company Sonos has just taken the wraps off their second limited edition speaker from the PLAY:1 line, the Tone. Much like the first limited edition, the Blue Note, released earlier this year, the Tone continues with the PLAY:1's seamless, minimal design, but now in "absolute black" or "pristine white," and with a soft matte finish. It's still the same size as the standard PLAY:1, so the speaker is compact and can be placed in almost any room without having an over-bearing presence.

Sony MHC-V7D speaker shows off sound you can see in new video

It's hard to show off just how powerful a speaker can be if you aren't there in person to hear the speaker play. Sony is trying to show off its new MHC-V7D speaker on video and to do so it has poured red, blue, and yellow paint into the speaker cone surface and then cranked the tunes. The sound pressure from the track being played, something called Hideaway, makes the paint leap off the speaker.

Twist LED bulb plays music, mimics the sun

Twist LED bulb plays music, mimics the sun

The days of light bulbs that can play music are upon us, and another option in the still sparse market has arisen: the Twist light bulb. Rather than using Bluetooth to connect to a mobile device, however, it can stream music over AirPlay and Wi-Fi. The speaker functionality is joined by LEDs and color that changes based on preference and the time of day. Says the maker, the light Twist gives off is a bluish white in the morning, and becomes a warmer color in the evening. In addition, the Twist bulb can mimic the sun’s own patterns for better integration with your lighting system.
