GEAR4's travel speaker

GEAR4 today announced the release of its newest portable speaker, the USB-powered BlackBox micro. As the smallest speaker in the company's range, the speaker can enhance the audio playback abilities of laptops or MP3 players thanks to an included mini USB-to-USB cable. There are two drivers hidden in the plastic shroud, with one dedicated to high notes, the other an SFX gel base driver for bass reproduction.

The travel speaker connects to any source audio devices via a 3.5mm audio cable jack, which is included. Powering the speaker is the USB cable, although an AC adapter is not included, requiring a computer connection. The BlackBox micro will be available in the UK this August and carry an equivalent price of about $40.
