iBoom: Portable iPod Boombox Available for Preorder

iBoom: Portable iPod Boombox Available for Preorder

by , 4:15 PM EDT, October 7th, 2004

Digital Lifestyle Outfitters has announced iBoom, a boom box for the iPods with docking ports. The boombox has a built in FM radio, four speakers, and the ability to charge your iPod. From Digital Lifestyle Outfitters:

iBoom is a 20 watts per channel, four-speaker boombox system with built-in digital FM radio. Users simply drop iPod or iPod mini into the iBoom dock, hit play and enjoy the most powerful, portable speaker solution designed specifically for iPod and iPod mini. iBoom also features a digital FM radio, built-in handle for ease of portability, auxiliary input jack and can be powered via its included AC adapter or 6 D batteries (not included). While under AC power, iBoom extends the battery life of iPod as it powers and charges iPod.

Back in the day the boombox and a cassette or CD were the ultimate way to enjoy and share your music - regardless of location. Now iPod owners can have the same experience with iPod and iBoom. DLO has developed a mobile speaker system for iPod and iPod mini that packs more punch and handheld portability than the small travel speakers on the market. The iBoom is a portable speaker product for iPod that has enough sound output to withstand the great outdoors or a room packed full of people. DLO has also gone one step further by including an FM radio to accompany iPod. The FM radio is one feature unique to iBoom and one that iPod owners have been asking for since the iPod was introduced.


The iBoom

The product is being made available for preorder through EverythingiPod.com. The product is priced at US$149.99.
