Product Details

Parts Express Inductive Coupling Wireless Powered Speaker for iPhone, iPod, Smartphones, and MP3 Players

Without wires or Bluetooth, this powered speaker substantially upgrades the sound of your smartphone or MP3 player's speakers. Simply turn on the powered speaker and set your smartphone player on top, playing through its internal speaker. Adjust the positioning of the phone for the best sound and be amazed as the tinny, distant sound from your phone gains volume and immediacy.

About as wide and long as an iPhone and about 1-1/2" thick, this amplified speaker is small enough to be portable, or find a home on any desktop. Power is provided by three AA cell batteries for 15 hours of listening or, when connected to a USB power source via the Micro USB jack, 5 VDC. A 3.5 mm jack is included for amplifying a traditional stereo analog signal, as well, making this speaker an ideal companion for tablet and laptop computers.

The rated 2 x 2W RMS output pushes a pair of 1" full-range drivers to levels that should be adequate for near-field listening, if not downright surprising. This portable speaker is perfect for dorms, offices, or bedrooms, but is also capable of turning a cell phone and table into a teleconferencing session!

Dimensions: 4-3/4" L x 2-1/8" W x 1-9/16".

Parts Express Inductive Coupling Wireless Powered Speaker for iPhone, iPod, Smartphones, and MP3 Players
Inductive Coupling Wireless Powered Speaker for iPhone, iPod, Smartphones, and MP3 Players is rated 4.375 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works like magic, but sound quality is marginalThe inductive coupling tech used in this product is pretty unique and works like magic, but unfortunately the sound produced is less than stellar. It's listenable and definitely adds more bass to an iPhone, but it sounds peaky and unbalanced, as one should expect from cheap 1-inch speakers. I used it to stream music while painting a room, and setting it on an almost empty gallon paint can seemed to help the sound slightly. It seems to consume very little power, so that's a plus, but it would be much more impressive with better speakers. That might make a good project if the internals are removable. The LED is way too bright, but that's easy to fix with a sharpie marker. It gets 4 stars only because it's dead-simple to use, and there's nothing else like it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for nights on the PatioI've purchased a ton of stuff from PE in my short time as a customer (Lepai's, Hipbox, Teinruo 2.1 etc.) and by far this is the coolest gadget I've found thus far. For under $20 its the perfect sound box for patios (not too loud for the neighbors but good sound quality for your guests) and can make an excellent conference call fix for people that want to use their speaker phone but it just isn't loud enough. Runs on batteries or a cell phone charger and the inductive coupling is the coolest part (just set your phone on top and let it play) not using Bluetooth keeps the battery alive longer and is easy for other people to throw their music on quickly. I recommend one your can't go wrong!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice little sound box to have aroundI bought two of these at Christmas for my daughters. They work perfectly as advertised. They are used by my girls to place their phone on while spending HOURS doing make up.... Great gift idea!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertisedI use this with my Samsung Galaxy Note 2 cell phone to boost the audio when I am working in the yard or around the house.It does a remarkably good job not only increasing the volume but it also improves the fidelity of the phone's speaker output.It seems to work better using the induction mode than when connecting directly with an audio cable.
