TDK's portable speakers for your back pocket


TDK might be primarily known for recording media, but that’s not exclusively so, with a nice sideline in consumer technology – the latest example of which are these Xa-10 pocket-sized flat speakers.

Available in three colours – orange, lime and silver – these are initially for the Japanese market only. The flat design is down to the flat NXT speaker, though there’s perhaps more bulk than you would expect around the middle, due to a compartment for batteries. Saying that, it’s still only 3.15 x 4.6 x 0.63 inches.

Power is by those batteries or USB, connectivity to your portable gadget is via mini stereo input and output is 2 x 1.2w. They go on sale in Japan on March 20th, priced at the equivalent of £13.
