Compact "Eggy" speakers: your ultra-portable audio drivers
Compact speakers may not pack the most punch for your music system, but what they might lack in power they make up for in portability. And, having said that, there are some pretty decent mini speakers around that are more than a match for their bigger cousins.
Take a look at S&J’s new “Eggy” speaker. We can easily see why it has the name, and it’s not far off the size of a chicken’s egg either, because it can fit into the palm of your hand.
Unscrew the two halves of the egg and you have two speakers complete with their own mini stands.
The units are driven from micro-mini 20mm units and feature a digital amplifier powering two watts of output per channel. Available in white and baby shades of blue and pink, because we know how important cutesy colours are.
If you want some music on the move, the “Bike Speaker” does exactly what its name suggests. Safer than wearing headphones while cycling, the speaker is based on the same technology as the Eggy and can be mounted on the handlebars. Additionally, the unit features an FM radio, watch and stopwatch.
The units will be shown off at this year’s CeBIT show in Hanover, Germany.
