Stripy Speakers

MP3 players

All too often, portable speaker systems have that look (and sadly sound) of something cheap and fragile. Not so the Stripy Speakers, made from polished aluminium and with a sound far above what you’d expect from something so small.

Ok, they’ll be no match for your home system, but the 9 watts of power will certainly carry your music quite a distance. In addition, the clever tubular design means they’re capable of swivelling 180°, so you can direct your music anywhere in the room. And there’s also a nice one-touch central station that glows a different colour according to the function being adjusted – pink when switched on, but tap it once and it turns blue for bass control, twice and it goes green for treble, and three times to return it to the default volume control.

You can pick up a pair of Stripy Speakers for around £50.
