[CES 2013] We’ve covered our fair share of bluetooth speakers, but iHome’s IBT44 has got us all kinds of excited as not only does it ooze with retro goodness with its boom box look, but it also has additional bells and whistles to make it a speaker to keep an eye on when it’s released later this year.
The IBT44 can be treated as a traditional boom box by throwing in six D batteries into it and having its powerful amp, two woofers and 1″ tweeters powered that way, or you can take part in the goodness that is the 2010s and have it charge through USB. There’s a spot on the front of the IBT44 where you can house your mobile device, which the IBT44 will connect to it through bluetooth.
In addition to all of that, the IBT44 also comes with a magnetized remote control and will come in a number of colors, which we know those of you who like to coordinate as much as possible will be happy about. The IBT44 will be available later this year for $199.99.
