Ferrari fans that are looking for a new speaker system or set of headphones might be interested in the new Logic 3 Ferrari branded products which have been added to their range this week.
The two new products to be added to the Logic 3 Ferrari range in the United States include the Cavallino T350 Headphones and Scuderia FS1 Bluetooth Speaker Dock which have been inspired by Ferraris GT road cars.

Just in time for Halloween, Jarre’s new Aeroskull dock embodies 70 watts of total power in a human-like cranium, complete with a pair of speaker-packing shades. Jarre is showing off the colorful chrome tune machine in black, white, blue, green, orange, pink, purple and yellow finishes, with a matching IR bone remote to boot. With a tinted lens appearance, the permanently affixed sunglasses actually contain two 15-watt speakers, with a 40-watt subwoofer occupying the skull’s rear. The lofty £349 (about $565) sticker price will net you some of the latest technologies, including Bluetooth audio support and a standard 3.5mm audio input, but Apple’s new Lightning port is notably absent, with a good-as-dead Dock Connector mounted up top, instead. With 70 watts of power and Jarre’s backing, this seemingly bizarre rig may actually offer decent performance. You’ll need to wait until its October ship date to see for yourself, but if a skeletal sound system is on your list of must-haves, you can rest in peace knowing that you have but weeks to live (with your current spirited setup).
The Samsung DA-E750 is a new speaker dock which has been added to Samsung range this week, and is hybrid amp that is equipped with both analog vacuum tubes together with a digital amp.
The combination of both the tubes and the digital amp which has been added to reduce noise distortion, has been designed to create a much more natural sound.
Phillips has this week launched a new iPhone/iPod speaker dock in the form of the Philips DS6100. Which has been designed with desktop machines in mind and in particular the Apple iMac, as it sits neatly along the length just underneath the screen.

Scosche have this week announced the launch of their new bassDOCK iPad speaker dock, which can be used with either first or second generation Apple iPads. Scosche bassDOCK is equipped with a 2.1 sound system with 40mm stereo speakers to deliver smooth mids and brilliant highs, together with a 3″ subwoofer to produce rich and powerful bass audio.

LG wasn’t very forthcoming with details when it announced its new AirPlay speaker dock back in November, so here at CES 2012 we decided we’d stop by LG’s booth to dig deeper and see it for ourselves. It looks like a foot square black Rubik’s cube, with glossy and matte exterior squares alternating around the outside, along with two mesh speaker grilles on the front corners. Up top is a dock that fits any iDevice and the power button, while a Smart Square screen resides on the front that’ll have touch controls when the dock ships in Q2 or Q3 of this year. A 3.5mm input jack and a USB port are on the back, and we’re pretty sure that the dongle plugged there is where the AirPlay chip currently resides, though it’ll be baked in before it gets to market. It was hard to evaluate the thing’s sound on the show floor, but with an 8-inch subwoofer inside, the low end came through loud and clear and overall it sounded good. Unfortunately, we can’t tell you how much it’ll cost when it becomes available, but we can give you the gallery of pics below. Enjoy.
We have featured quite a few different iPhone docks here at Geeky Gadgets, the latest one is from a company called Gavio and it looks like they have taken their design inspiration from the household toaster.
The TOAST speaker iPhone dock is obviously designed to be used in your kitchen, just make sure you don’t mix it up with your toaster, and place your iPhone in the wrong one.
There are no details as yet on how much the TOAST iPhone dock will retail for when it goes on sale, you can find out more information over at Gavio.
We’ve been following the onslaught of AirPlay / Bluetooth speaker systems in recent months, carefully combing through the prospects to find the true contenders. We were recently impressed by Klipsch’s Gallery G-17 Air and now we’ve given the JBL OnBeat Xtreme a testdrive. This beast is step up from the regular ol’ OnBeat dock, both in stature and cost. Priced a cool $500… it’s sandwiched between the pricey B&W Zeppelin Air and the more modest iHome iW1. So is the JBL dock extreme enough to warrant a purchase? We’ve been blasting beats through this bad boy for a fortnight, so read on to find out if you should snatch one up for yourself.
Have a soft spot for wireless speakers? There were tons of options out there already, but JBL just threw one more into the ring with its On Tour iBT. As we’d expect form the audio gurus, the system boasts wireless audio internals that play nice with both A2DP and AVRCP Bluetooth devices. In addition to four JBL Odyssey transducers, the kit packs a built-in microphone for Facetime or hands-free calls, an adjustable iPad stand and a USB connector for charging — when the Katy Perry tune blastin’ device is plugged in itself, of course. Interested? It can be yours now via the source link for $150, but if you’d care to take a closer look before committing, peep the gallery below.
Harman Kardon has unveiled a new addition to its line of iPhone/iPod speaker docks this week with the launch of their new MS 150. The new high end MS 150 speaker dock incorporates a slot-loaded CD player and an FM radio tuner and will retail for a suggested $689. Ouch!
So if your pockets are deep enough you can listen to 30-watt bass-reflex speakers which are fitted in the new MS 150, providing a frequency response of 65Hz-20kHz at +/-3dB and a 75dB signal-to-noise ratio. Together with a subwoofer output, allowing you to connect a powered subwoofer.
Harman Kardon have also included S-Video outputs for displaying photos and videos on a connected display, analog audio inputs, digital audio input, MP3, WMA-CD playback and six presents for the RDS FM tuner. Together with IR remote, alarm, sleep timer and dimmer to reduce the brightness of the three-line dot-matrix display.

Had your eye on an AirPlay accessory for your iPhone or iPod touch? Well, Pioneeris looking to help you pull the trigger on one. The company has announced a new set of AirPlay Music Tap systems that enable access to your music library without being chained to a peripheral. By connecting one of these bad boys to your home WiFi or ethernet network, you’ll be able to access your entire iTunes library in various locations throughout your home — after you install Apple’s Remote app, of course. Other features include a 2.5-inch full-color LCD display, Pandora, iHeartRadio, vTuner internet radio and Air Jam, which allows for playlist sharing on your arsenal of the company’s Music Tap systems. When this pair drops in October, you’ll have your choice of the X-SMC-3-S for $400 or the more dapper, bluetooth-enabled X-SMC4-Elite for $480. You can take a peek at the Elite, along with the full PR, after the break.
Altec Lansing is showing off a handful of updates to its line of audio accessories this week at IFA in Berlin. At top of the list is the newly revealed inAir 5000, a hefty tabletop AirPlay speaker that the company is firmly positioning to take on Bowers & Wilkins’ Zeppelin line (which also recently got its own AirPlay version). Like that system, the inAir certainly offers a unique take on aesthetics, with a teardrop design. The company opted not to install an Apple dock on the 110 watt system, given that compatible devices can stream audio wirelessly to the thing via AirPlay.
The iMT630 Classic is, not surprisingly, a more traditional speaker dock. It’s portable and light and features a docking shelf on the front that can be flipped out with the push of a button. Open up the stand on the back, and you’ll find a spot for storing the speaker’s remote. The remote itself is also magnetic, so you can stick it to the Classic’s front grill (someone at the company has clearly lost a lot of remotes in their day). No word yet on pricing and availability for either speaker system.
The company also showcased its Bliss Headphones, which are “designed for a Woman’s ear.” What does that mean, exactly? Mostly that their earbuds are smaller, fitting more comfortably in smaller ear canals. Altec Lansing assures us, however, that they’re still capable of offering great sound, in spite of their size. And yes, they come in pink.
Philips’ line of smartphone-connected sound systems has been all up on iOS for quite sometime, but now Fidelio’s ready to show Android some love. The outfit just outed three new Android-ready speaker docks — the AS851, AS351 and AS111 — and is set to debut the flossy Fidelios at IFA this week. These new docks are so anxious to get close to your Android handset, that they’re rocking a micro-USB connector that adjusts in three dimensions to allow just about any phone to stand tall in portrait or kick back in landscape. Either way, the phone syncs the jams via Bluetooth and a dedicated app. The biggie of the bunch, the AS851, promises “lifelike, distortion-less music” and 30 watts of RMS power, while the smaller AS351 lets you take the show on the road with both AC and battery options and bumps 10 watts of RMS. The smallest of the three, the AS111, is dubbed as a bedside companion. There’s no word on pricing or when the docks will have your Android getting up with the get down, but we do have full PR for you after the break.
What’s that, an alien egg? Nope. Memory foam iPillow? No, silly, it’s a Zeppelin, a Zeppelin Air more specifically. Bowers & Wilkins brought us the first iPod-centric Zeppelin in the middle of the great iPod dock flood of ’07. A few years later they downsized and brought us a mini version. The logical extension after the advent of AirPlay is here: a Zeppelin that does its thang without wires. We’ve been beaming music to it for a few weeks now — wanna find out how our relationship has been? Click through, captain.
It’s a familiar face, sure, but there’s a key ingredient thrown here that’s been lacking on JBL’s prior iDevice docks: AirPlay. We’re still waiting (and waiting) to see if Apple’s going to expand its licensing program to allow third-party vendors the ability to toss in AirPlay video streaming, but for now, JBL’s taking advantage of what’s out there. The On Air Wireless AirPlay speaker dock — which is shipping today to Best Buy and Apple Stores after being teased a few weeks ago — is now good and official, enabling consumers to wirelessly stream their iTunes library from Macs, PCs, iPhones, iPods or iPads right to the dock. Aside from a rather unorthodox design (which should go a long way to dispersing jams in a 360-degree fashion), you’ll also find a color LCD, digital FM radio, an inbuilt alarm clock, DSP technology and a proprietary adapter that enables it to be worn as headgear at your next rave. We’re guessing that final bit makes the $349.99 price tag entirely more palatable.
This planet we call home needs another iDock about as bad as we need another Charlie Sheen running around aimlessly, but no matter — we’re getting one, and it’s being delivered from JBL. The company has just outed its first-ever iPad speaker dock, the OnBeat. Truth be told, it’s capable of handling iPod touches, iPhones and iPads (no word on the iPad 2), but it’s clearly engineered to hold the largest of the bunch best. Aside from providing joints and jams to those situated in your living room (or basement, if that’s how you roll), it can also pipe Netflix and YouTube content directly to one’s television via a composite video output, and if you’re running around sans an iDevice, the 3.5mm auxiliary jack ensures that any other source will still function just fine. You’ll also be able to charge and sync any docked devices, but you’ll be asked to dole out $149.95 in order to bring one home when it ships next month.
When we first peeked this AirPlay-enabled speaker dock, we were admittedly excited to see how things would turn out after it made rounds through the FCC. JBL just tossed up the splash page for the On Air Wireless speaker and we’ve gotta say — it looks to be a promising means of streaming your jams. The system connects wirelessly to your AirPlay-enabled Mac and iOS device on 4.2 or later and packs a screen that’ll display the track info of the song you’re rocking out to. What’s more, the rounded grill sports a dual alarm clock, FM radio, and a USB port for future firmware updates. As you might have surmised by now, the dock is not yet available for purchase and there’s no word on price. If you’re interested, though, be sure to hit the source link, sign up for more info and get ready to headbang this spring.
