Speak Up

Sometime in between my purchasing my last set of speakers for my computer (some 6-7 years ago) and today, a whole culture of cool-looking, sound-dispensing monsters have sprouted. Back then, I thought my two dinky black cupcake-sized contraptions, connected to a larger subwoofer, were pretty high tech. It even had a separate volume control device, PHWOAR, how cool was I. Now, I play music directly from my iPhone, so it seems high time I invest in some sort of device that's both sexy and sonically sound (no pun intended, believe it or not).

Holy Batman, there are a lot of speakers out there, each one more orgasmic than the first. Why have I been buying clothes all these years when I could be outfitting my apartment with the sickest sound system known to mankind?

For sound quality (or volume at the very least), I can't imagine anything comes close to these Ferguson Hill babies.

And you thought I was bad with the punning. Here comes Speak-er, aka speakers in the shape of speech bubbles. This is almost too cute for words...

...Whereas this actually IS too cute for words. iBoo, iPanda and iPig are friendly desktop creatures that will bring you crystal-clear sound effects in addition to ridiculous adorableness. Imagine if you were to download a pig/panda/ghost sound effect and play it from your computer? Yeah, TOO CUTE, that's what I thought.

And then going from one end of the spectrum to the other... who decided it would be a good idea to make speakers out of a headless dog? Not anyone I want to be friends with, morbid lunatic. Another pun-tastic one here. Instead of a sub-woofer, this is a... (say it with me guys) woofer. (insert ellipsis in speech bubble above head, or if you're Asian, a big drip of sweat on your forehead.)

Now speaking to Hong Kongers, you can order a replica of the HSBC lions here. Very cool.

Enough fun with barnyard creatures for now. These babies are a sleek option that'll double as a night light, and they come in multiple sizes.

The Hive is a pretty nifty wall-hanging option...

And last but not least, what would you expect from your resident ShoeGeek but a stiletto-shaped speaker? Now that's sound judgement. And yes, that pun was intentional.
