Boast Sound Reflector

Boast Sound Reflector

You would think that with all the money Apple pours into the iPad, they could make the speaker sound decent. Instead, the rear-facing abomination needs friends like the Boast Sound Reflector ($15) to help it out. The Boast is made of polypropylene homopoly, hugs your iPad using neodymium magnets, and redirects the sound from the rear/side of your iPad to the front — where it belongs.

  • TDK Wireless Charging Speaker

    Plenty of wireless speakers can charge up your device — by using a dock or a cord. The TDK Wireless Charging Speaker ($400) takes a different approach by building a Qi-compatible inductive charging pad into the top. Other features include Bluetooth 2.1 wireless audio streaming, a built-in rechargeable battery, four full-range left/right speakers, a ported subwoofer, a 3.5mm input for non-wireless connections, an IPX3-compliant weatherized design, and a USB charging port for those times when you just feel like plugging something in.

  • Tombox

    Speakers don't have to be old to look cool — but it definitely doesn't hurt. Made from reused discarded loudspeakers, every Tombox (€190-€250; roughly $230-$300) is unique, offering a built-in rechargeable battery that can last for up to two weeks, an oversized volume knob, a single 3.5mm cable and plug for hooking up your audio source, and retro styling that trumps any modern boombox. Also available in oversized plus models.
