iPhone and iPod accessories are everywhere, it seems everyone is making some sort of accessory so at this point in time companies really need to set themselves apart with unique and innovative products and I think these new speakers from Speakal do that. The iCrystal docking station is certainly unique, it looks rather futuristic, and something I wouldn’t mind using really..
iCrystal boasts one of the most innovative and unique designs of any dock on the market with two separated spherical pods that house an illuminated teardrop shedding a gentle ambient blue light around the rim of the speaker.
“Functionality has always been a crucial aspect to successful product design, but now more than ever consumers demand solutions that deliver as much style as they do function” said CEO David Solomon. “iCrystal perfectly complements modern design elements with its decorative accents and stylish sound. It promises to be an interesting discussion piece for the contemporary home,” added Solomon.
As with all of Speakal’s unique docking solutions, iCrystal features a remote control and onboard humanized touch controls that make adjusting volume and changing tracks effortless. It can be powered by 4 AA batteries providing hours of portable enjoyment and features a 3.5mm input expanding the range of compatibility beyond iPod/iPhone to gaming consoles, TVs, and other music sources.
iCrystal was recognized in January as a 2010 Best of Show Award Finalist by iLounge at the Consumer Electronics Show. It is available now in white, black, and red and retails for $79.99.
