The holidays are fast approaching and one gadget we have our eye on is Speakal’s iHog, the stylish hog-shaped iPod/iPhone docking station speaker system. Available in pink and white, the iHog boasts 28+ watts of pure hog heaven and is available through Speakal and Amazon, priced at $119.99 until Sept. 30, $139.99 after.
Lightweight at around 4 lbs, the iHog will be a powerful portable outdoor speaker, providing up to 10 hours of lithium rechargeable battery life that also charges the iPod. The fun part about the iHog is that volume is controlled by pushing the hog’s ears to adjust.
Its universal cradle allows playback for iPhones and iPods (including iOS4, iPhone 3 and iPhone 4) outdoors or indoors with four high-quality speakers delivering 360 degrees of sound with two tweeters, two sound diffusers and a 20 Watt subwoofer, a super amplification stereo system and optimized airflow, with frequencies from 50Hz-20KHz for a total output of 28+ Watts that fills up a room with sound.
Based on Speakal’s best-selling iPig docking station, the iHog is more powerful and portable, with a battery-operated docking station that features easy-touch Humanized Touch Volume Controls to adjust the iPod’s navigation with a light touch of the hand. Just push the hog’s ears to turn the volume up or down, or its head to skip tracks, pause, or stop or use the included remote to adjust the controls from a distance. In addition, the iHog also adds drama to movies or gaming — just connect iHog to a TV, gaming console, or other music source with the included 3.5mm to amplify sound with its super amplification system.
iHog comes with the docking station, AC power adapter/power cable, 3.5mm Audio Jack Connection, Remote Control with battery, and user manual.
The iHog iPod docking station speaker system is available immediately in the iHog colors of pink and white (with black and black/white Panda style colors coming soon) through Speakal and Amazon, priced at $119.99 until Sept. 30, $139.99 after.
