Klipsch LightSpeakers

How clever of Klipsch to combine LED lighting and speakers into the same gadget. The LightSpeakers fit into both 5 and 6" fixtures and can be dimmed like other bulbs. The kit comes with a transmitter that can send audio wirelessly to up to 8 bulbs in 2 separate zones and the company claims that each will last for 40,000 hours. Each kit contains two speakers, remote, transmitter and cables. Pre-order at a price of $599.99, $249.99 for additional speakers.

Motorola and Sony Wireless Round Speakers

Motorola has released their T325 Bluetooth speaker that can also be used as a hands-free car system. There are not many details known although it is assumed that it is compatible with any Bluetooth Moto phone with A2DP. It certainly looks similar to Sony Ericsson's Outdoor Wireless Speaker MS500 with 2W output. Sony's device works to within 10m of your cell phone and 2 AA batteries provide 5 hours of tunes. Round must be in.
