Xpod pocketable speakers

A tiny speaker system in the form of Xpod Active Sound for portable audio devices was spotted on Friday, measuring in at just over 3 inches long by 1.3 inches wide and 0.33 inches thick. The pair of piezoelectric drivers reproduces sound thanks to a two-channel 770mW amplifier, and power comes from a built-in battery that can be recharged via an included USB cable.

Available in red, black or white with a matching lanyard, the speaker set includes a cord with a 3.5mm stereo jack on either side to connect source devices via their headphone connections. A simple yet innovative feature involves a small groove on the backside of the speaker pod to allow users to stand them up using coins.

The XPod speakers are available in Korea now, for the equivalent of about $17, though it is not known if or when they will come to other markets. [via TechnaBob]
