SPACE AGE: The iHome Portable Multimedia Speakers look more like robots (or space-age objects) than speakers, but that’s kinda why we love them. They act as the perfect stereo speaker system that attaches right to an iPod, iPhone, or laptop and come in a capsule shape for portability, then separate and extend for sound. The set comes with two amplified speakers (with built-in rechargeable batteries), vacuum bass expansion, USB charging, and a protective carrying case. Bring on the tunes.
