The World’s Largest Subwoofer?

Could this be the world’s largest subwoofer? I think not. I have seen plenty of subwoofer vans that can crank out more power than this guy but still, kudos for tryin’.

In addition to being the world’s largest subwoofer, the “MATTERHORN” just might be the most powerful as well — built by Danley Sound Labs.

Soft Values Portable Belt Speakers!

Here’s an interesting concept belt speakers from Soft Values.  I don’t know why I’d use instead of a regular headphones but still, kudos for a great concept.

The Soft Values Portable Speaker sits in a small, ball-like form that encloses a soft, fabric sock and a strap. This sock will unfold out of the speaker and cover it up to give the Soft Values Portable Speaker a nice and soft feel. The strap obviously comes in handy to lug this little sound box around. Though we don’t have too many details about the speaker, a Bluetooth co
