Behringer's iNuke Boom car-sized iPhone dock is one of the most ridiculous speakers ever created. But as our own Sam Biddle discovered at CES, it's so massive your inhibitions about dancing in public are instantly sucked away into its black hole of decibels. So why did Behringer completely neuter it with this tiny Junior version?
There are plenty of awesome speaker docks out there for your iPad, iPhone or iPod, but finding one that looks as good as it sounds takes a bit of effort. We've done the hard part for you and rounded up five of the most stylish boomboxes you can get for your iOS device right now.
Far too many speaker docks for Apple products are boring black boxes. These hand-built aluminium docks shaped like the exhaust pipes from hot rods are some of the most creative we've seen in a while.
Because they seemingly outnumber the stars in the sky, speaker docks for iOS devices are rarely worth a second glance. But Jarre's new AeroPad Two dock manages to do the near-impossible with a beautiful design that almost makes it feel like docking your iPad will muck it up.
Nothing says class and modern charm like building speakers into furniture, and the UK Sound Sofa by CSL isn't going to miss this trend wave. For just $1500, you can own (and nap on!) the world's worst idea.
Another day, another iOS device dock designed to compensate for their unimpressive built-in speakers. Today it's Philips with its elongated DS6100 featuring an aluminium housing that's designed to perfectly complement your iMac.
When you encounter something as absurd as an iPod dock the size of a pony, what else is there to do but climb on it? Sadly, the fellows at Behringer's CES booth said no. So I danced, danced, danced.
OK, a really small car, but still: Behringer's iNuke Boom is bloody huge. It's 1.2m tall, 2.4m long and weighs 318kg. Not impressed?
