If the iPhone Portable Amplifier Horn didn’t knock your socks off, then maybe this will satisfy your need for sound. Now here are some
headphones speakers with some personality. Of course, these 500XL Giant Earbud Speakers would be perfect for your iPod or iPhone but they still make perfectly good speakers for any other music player or device that you have.
If you haven’t seen the resemblance already, then let me spell it out for you. These speakers look exactly like the headphones that come bundled with Apple’s iPod or iPhone—and they’re huge!
Sometimes bigger IS really better, especially when it comes to sound. That’s why we took a puny pair of earbuds, put them in Fred’s highly technical Way Big machine, and created 500XL – it’s 500 times the size of the original! How great will these look on your desktop alongside your mp3 player or PC? 500XL includes a built-in amp and 3-way power – it runs on batteries; you can connect it to your PC’s USB port with the supplied cord; or plug it into the wall with a generic power supply (not included).
The bad thing is that you can’t prop them up so you can just position them on your left and right for the best overall sound experience. These 500XL Giant Earbud Speakers retail for $43.64 at Amazon.com. They are also available for $64 from Fred Flare.
