Laptops have changed the way we use computers. They’re small, portable and you can bring them anywhere. But despite really obvious advantages, laptops still have their own limitations. For example, majority of the speakers installed on laptops produce tinny sounds mainly because the drivers are very small. This is mainly because of the very packed environment inside the chassis of the computer. Either you learn to live with the small sound that most laptop speakers produce or you actually take a solid step towards experiencing big sounds from your laptop. [Read more…]
Computer speakers are usually one of the PC components that are not usually given much attention. It’s a peripheral so as peripherals go, it is set aside for other upgrades the computer owner feels are more essential. But if you use your computer a lot and also use it for entertainment purposes like listening to music or watching videos then a good pair of speakers is essential. [Read more…]
I work at home and one of the important things about working at home is to have a dedicated workspace in your house. It could be a home office or just a little corner where you can shift to work mode whenever you enter this zone. But even though I have a dedicated workspace at home I sometimes get the urge to just bring my laptop to another part of the house to give myself a little change in scenery. [Read more…]
Ah, now isn’t this just cute! The iTurtle seems to trump it’s predecessor the iDog in cuteness, would you agree. This is not an MP3 player though, nor is it a docking station for your iPods. No, no, no. Like iDog this is a speaker system. Plug an audio source into it and you can watch the iTutle bob and swing its head to the beat.
Now what I like most are the light effects. It’s not just the bobbin’ and swayin’ head that’s good, you get lights too… through iTurtles shell.
I-TURTLE communicates his moods through musical riffs, movement and tons of blinking light patterns on his shell! He even whines when he’s hungry for more music or attention! I-TURTLE loves to move and groove to your music, but watch out – flick its tail, and it won’t be happy! He may have a little shell, but he has a big sound!
The iPanda by Speakal is an iPod dock system that stands out. Design-wise this is all too cute versus the traditional iPod docks. I’d say it’s a perfect addition to your kid’s iPod gift. Their room will definitely enjoy the music. The iPanda’s 2.1 stereo speaker system isn’t too shabby and occupies little room on a table-top.
If you like the sort of speakers Teufel is producing for hi-fi systems and would like something of decent quality for your laptop or desktop PC, with the added bonus of a built-in USB hub, then look no further than the new Concept B 200 USB stereo speaker system.
Rather than having to use the audio output jack from your PC or Mac (if indeed it has one — most do but some don’t) you simply plug the speakers into a spare USB 2.0 socket and away you go.
Whether you’re choosing hi-fi speakers for your home, garden or somewhere else, European quality audio company Teufel has just introduced its rugged Omniton 202 loudspeakers which offer great sound reproduction yet can take the knocks that indoor and outdoor life can throw at them.
Though compact, the speakers feature a 130mm woofer and 25mm cloth dome tweeter, with bass reproduction so good there’s really no need for an additional subwoofer.
If you’re in the market for some fairly inexpensive audio speakers for your laptop or portable music player, the IXOS Oyster Premium portable speakers may be what you’re looking for.
They can be powered either from a spare USB port, or using four triple-A batteries, and connect up to your equipment via standard 3.5mm audio jack.
