Sharper Image Portable Speaker System
by Mark R
The Sharper Image is no stranger to clocks that double as iPod docks, like the Clock Radio we reported on the other day. This particular clock radio is made for travelers.
You can’t see this from the photo, but this L-shaped dock can fold up into a 12 X 3 rectangle, which is about the size of a hardback book. This convenient and portable shape can then be tucked into the included soft travel case, and the user can carry it around to wherever they go.
The Portable Speaker System sounds pretty good, considering it has 2.25 inch speakers that carry 3 watts each. It is powered by the AC Adapter, or four not included AAA batteries.
You can put the iPod and iPhone on the dock, and control it with the controls on the iPod or iPhone itself. The controls for setting the clock and alarm are located somewhat awkwardly underneath the base itself.
So not only can the user take an alarm with them wherever they go, but they can take their tunes as well. It doesn’t look like you can make the alarm ring to your favorite tune, though.
You can get The Sharper Image Portable Speaker System Dock for the iPhone and iPod on the Sharper Image site for about $99.99.
