Maxell Pocket Speakers
Maxell has just released the MXSP-100P stereo speaker pack. Fabric is used instead of hard plastic or metal for the speakers' body, rendering it safe and small enough to fit in a pocket while still managing 2.4W through two satellites. The speakers are meant as companions to handheld devices such as a cellphone or iPod, and accept input from any 3.5mm plug. Transport is made easier courtesy of a belt loop that connects the 100P to clothing or a backpack. Power when away from home is supplied through four AA batteries for roughly 20 hours. The speakers are carried by Maxell in black and white colors for $20 each.
