7 Modern Speakers for Labor Day Listening
Roughly the size of an eyeglass case, this diminutive hi-fi audio system flips open to reveal stereo speakers, a woofer, digital amplifiers, a radio tuner and an alarm clock. Completely portable, it can run 5 hours on a single charge and connect to any audio device wirelessly via Bluetooth or with the included line-in cable.
If video killed the radio star, then certainly the Jambox by Jawbone will have a hand in hammering the final nail into the Boombox coffin. This impressive wireless speaker pairs with a number of electronic devices, such as your iPad or tablet devices, Smartphone, Mac or PC. Using Bluetooth technology, this speaker streams your favorite music, or can act as your personal home theatre speaker system for movies or television shows right from your iPad. Oh, and did I mention it’s also designed to allow you to take that unscheduled conference call from anywhere? Sync it with your smartphone, and watch your office cube (or kitchen table) turn into a virtual conference room. Weighing in at only 12 ounces, it's perfect for bringing along the next time you’re at the beach, hanging out poolside, or while traveling.
