Water-resistant iPod speakers


While I don't sing in the shower very much, I often wish I could boogie to one of my iTunes playlists while going through my morning ablutions. So even though this wireless water-resistant iPod speaker doesn't come in classic iPod white, I'd be happy to have it in my bathroom, knowing that I wouldn't have to worry about any accidental splash damage.

The 3" full-range 6-watt speaker comes with a dock, of course, but it's kept separate from the speaker so that it can be kept somewhere safe and dry - anywhere within the 150' radius of its wireless signal, in fact. So you could leave the docking station in one place and move the speaker around the house, even out to the pool if that's where you need some tunes going. However, both the dock and the speaker need AC power, so they're not truly portable units.

The system is compatible with all iPod nanos, 30GB and 60GB iPod video, and the 20GB iPod photo. The dock also recharges iPods while it's playing. Speakers come with AM/FM radio, an alarm clock, 3 audio/video out jacks, and one audio in jack for connection to a PC or CD player. And there's a remote control, of course.

The entire speaker system costs $199.95. Available from March 9 at Hammacher Schlemmer.
