Sony has just dropped a new iPod charging stand/ speaker dock …thing.
Yeah, it looks like a 'go' coffee mug, or something else, and we aren't 'going' there.
It is the SRS-V500IP!
The microphone looking thing is actually a speaker, a removable speaker! Inside it is Sony‚Äôs Circle Sound Stage System, which will blasts 16 watts of stereo in a 360 degree bubble.
That sounds pretty interesting. One wonders if to get best effect should it be placed in the center of the room?
Anyway, use it at home in the cradle, or take it to go. You can even hook it up to your car via your in-car power adapter and position it in your vehicle‚Äôs drink tray. Just don't drink from it! (ba-duh-bum!)
Okay. It's slightly odd, right? Were not sure if we would have designed an iPod dock/speaker thing that looks like a Mister Microphone, but have at.
Sometimes a cigar shaped iPod dock is just a cigar shaped iPod dock. Okay, we went there, but only a little.
Available from Sony now for an economical $239.99 in a variety of colors. HERE!
