With the proliferation of portable music devices hitting an all-time high this year, what with every cellphone out there able to play tunes as well as the obvious tidal wave of MP3 players such as the iPod, the market for portable external speakers is getting bigger and bigger. The problem is, speakers generally aren’t all that portable, and the ones that are put out a less-than-impressive quality of sound. So what’s one to do who wants to play music out loud on the go?
The Icetech DUETTE KS-007 Mini-Speaker with Retractable Subwoofer solves the small speaker/small sound problem by including a retractable subwoofer. When closed, it’s small enough to fit in your pocket. But when you expand the accordion-like speaker, it provides a fuller sound than you could get from a flat speaker. It’s perfect for sharing a new album with a group of friends, setting up a mini-stereo at your desk, or annoying everyone on the Q train. And for a mere $13, it’s got a really tiny price to match its size, so you really can’t go wrong.
