Evolve - wireless speaker system

Ever since I saw the Evolve at the Griffin booth at CES last year I've been anxiously waiting for it to be released. It looked to be the first truly wireless speaker system but the hall was so loud I couldn't tell about the sound.

Finally, the Evolve has evolved and it was worth the wait. Once I had the dock plugged in I was ready to go. Grabbing a speaker cube in each hand I walked them out to the patio, a good 100 feet away.

The sound was amazing, great separation, solid bass and clear treble. And the clean, high-tech design looked good on my patio, in my living room, in the bedroom, even out by the trampoline.

Each speaker cube has its own long-life Lithium-Ion battery pack, delivering up to 10 hours of music between charges. Evolve even charges wirelessly: to charge the batteries, just place the speaker on its charging station. It's so elegantly simple, there's nothing to plug in, and nothing to unplug when you're ready to stop the party. Each speaker features its own on/off switch on the top of the cube, and an automatic sleep mode to conserve battery charge.

Compatible with every iPod, it also integrates with CD, MP3 players, MiniDisc players, and TV's, stereo receivers equipped with Aux Audio inputs. While the current Evolve works with iPhone in airplane mode, the company is working on making it as compatible as possible so that the airplane mode nag-screen doesn't pop up in the future.

The included RF remote lets you switch playlists, shuffle and adjust the EQ.

If you've been looking for a new wireless system it's finally here. Cut the cord.

$299 at Griffin and other electronic stores.
