The onboard speaker in your iPad sucks. If you want to hear the movie, your music, or your lady when you FaceTime, the Sound Prism bluetooth speaker is a good add-on. It also happens to be designed to fit neatly into your Smart Cover, too.
The original JamBox from Jawbone is a powerful little portable sound system. Now they’re introducing the Big JamBox. It’s twice the size of the little one but still super portable. It is also twice as loud which will drown out the crappy music those people down the beach are trying to blast. The battery lasts for 15-hours.
You know the song Radar Love? Well, you should. It’s by Golden Earring, look it up. The Striva wireless headphone system is pretty much the “wave in the air” the singer is talking about in the song.

If you have an embarrassingly small dock, this one from Jarre could be just the enlargement you’re looking for.

They’re small but powerful. Bowers & Wilkins mini theater systems create stunning cinematic soundscapes that basically turn your living room into a home theater. It’s achieved with their integrated system of a subwoofer and crisp M1 satellite speakers. They surround you with sound.
These BackBeat GO headphones from Plantronics are wireless. Technically there is still one wire holding the pair of earbuds together but it’s not like the normal headphone wire that you get tangled around something and rip out of your iPod or iPhone three or four times every workout. These are Bluetooth buds, snag free for sure.
Playing music through your computer speakers doesn’t quite qualify as “home audio” now does it?

If you want to be a pioneer of underwater breakdancing, we found your boombox. The Eco Terra Boombox is a floating, fully submersible sound system.

Sorry to all you Jimmy Buffett fans but the ZIK Parrot headphones have nothing to do with getting wasted again in Margaritaville. They’re actually super-advanced Bluetooth, noise-cancelling headphones. The design won a Hot Stuff award at CES for its laundry list of unique features. For one, the entire earpiece acts as a touch panel for easy swipe control. They also feature Digital Signal Processing which creates their “concert hall effect”, making all your music sound like you’re in the front row at a live show. When you take them off they switch to standby mode automatically.
