iFrogz Audiowrapz - iPod case with built-in speaker

audiowrapz-cropped-pink.jpg

Audowrapz by iFrogz is an ingenious product -- a 100% silicone case that utilizes "passive speaker technology" that does not require batteries or draw power from your iPod. It turns your 3rd gen iPod into a little speaker that also protects your precious baby.

It has a pass-through port so you can switch to headphones if you want some privacy, but you'll need to take it out of the case to charge. The three metal grilles contain a total of two small speakers, but you need to crank the volume control to really hear it, and there lies my quibble with the gizmo. It doesn't even create as much volume as the built-in speaker on an iPhone, and with all the terrific iPod speaker solutions out there, it faces tough competion.

But at a price point of under $20 bucks I'm not going to complain. I just can't wait for the next version.

Available from iFrogz in 8 bright colors and exclusively at Wal Mart.
