The Coolest Things You Can Buy
Pump up the volume - with a twist

Sorry, this product is not available.
Although headphones are handy there's something special about listening to your music through a pair of decent speakers, especially
when the music in question is being pumped out via an MP3 player or PC. Because unlike that micro system in the kitchen or the
flashy stack of separates in your sitting room, digital players are rarely blessed with decent external speakers.
Yes, you can glue your earphones to the side of a tea chest or crank your PC's speakers up to eleven, but a cacophony of snap,
crackle and pop isn't going to impress anyone. That's why we know you're going to love Music Studio's Stripy Speakers.
These über-chic mini speakers are perfect for desktop use and music on the move, and they also make rather attractive robot ears
when stuck on the side of your head. But that's beside the point. What isn't beside the point is the fact that, considering their
size, Stripy Speakers sound truly impressive. Packing a 9 watt punch (4.5 watts RMS per channel) and made from polished aluminium,
these gleaming little cylinders produce big audio dynamite that's sure to impress, even when blasting out Joe 'Shaddap Your Face'
Dolce at top whack. (Well okay, maybe they can't save that).
As far as looks go, the Stripys are unlike any speakers you've ever seen (unless you're a music-loving Cyberman) and the clever
tubular design means they're capable of swivelling 180°, so you can direct your music anywhere in the room. Clever, eh? Speaking of
clever, the Stripy Speakers feature an intuitive one-touch central station that glows a different colour according to the function
being adjusted. It's pinky white when switched on, but tap it once and it turns blue for bass control, twice and it goes green for
treble, and three times to return it to the default volume control. It's a bit like an iPod scroll wheel with some chilled-out lights thrown in.
Needless to say, the innovative styling of Stripy Speakers really separates them from the competition and they look super sleek in
any scenario. But you don't get anywhere on looks alone in the music world these days (just ask Michelle McManus). No, crisp sonics
and smart functionality are what elevate the Stripys into the upper echelons of the 'lots of sound for your pound' category. In
fact, we can think of no better way to share your digital library with the world than with a set of Stripy Speakers.

I just bought these and trust me when I tell you, you wont regret doing the same. The sound quality is soo good for speakers so small! These are a must have for any small (or larger) room as the impact is phenomenal, visually and in the sound.

I ordered my speakers yesterday and they came first thing this morning and I love them. They are so small but extremely powerful, perfect speakers for your MP3 player.

Fantastic speaker. I only plugged one in and the sound quality was ace!!! But with 2 plugged in the sound is even better - top notch speakers and worth every penny!

Absolutely amazing. Got them out of the box and thought I had been sold a pup. I thought they were too small to have any impact. How wrong was I, the wife even forgave me for buying them when she heard them. Did I also say that they look damn cool...?
