Bird-Electron have announced some wonderful new technology. The EZION 0 is an aluminum portable speaker which looks like a London Underground Tannoy box. Despite being 6 x 6 x 3 cm, it weighs 180 grams. There is no volume control, just a ‘Hi’ and ‘Lo’ switch. It’ll draw power from your music player, thereby reducing the battery life. The retail price is $73/£35. Demand is rumoured to be high, please put in your orders early to avoid disappointment.
