Compact speaker set for MacBooks, iPhones, iPods
TuneWear has announced the BoomTune Bomb II Stereo, a compact speaker set for use with MacBooks, iPhones, iPods and other portable devices. The system projects sound in a 360-degree radius with 36mm drivers, and offers an 86dB signal-to-noise ratio. Input comes through a 3.5mm stereo jack; improved sound is said to be possible by opening up the top of each speaker.
The Bomb II's battery lasts approximately 6 hours, and can be recharged over 500 times. During charging the speakers use a retractable USB cable, and glow red to indicate active charging or blue for full power. The speakers cost $50, and come in either matte black or a bright red jewel color.
