Ixos unveils cubic speakers, not for squares

They won't roll away

Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

We thought Cubism was old hat, but it’s back, in audio form. Ixos has created a cube-shaped portable speaker for use with all sorts of musical devices, including iPods.

The XMM238 has 1W speakers built into the left and right-hand sides. It also stays true to its true cube credentials by measuring 7 x 7 x 7cm.

Ixos: portable cubes

Users can connect the speaker to any device that has a 3.5mm headphone socket, and it gives roughly eight hours of use from four AA batteries. A USB power lead is included so it can be powered without batteries from, say, a laptop.

Ixos’ XMM238 cube speaker is available now in iPod white, boy-racer black or girlie pink for £15 (€20/$30).
