Who Needs Headphones When You've Got Ludacris' Party in a Box?

Illustration for article titled Who Needs Headphones When Youve Got Ludacris Party in a Box?

With the proliferation of phones and tablets as the primary listen devices for music, some producers go so far as to mix their tracks for tiny mono speakers, *cough*Akon*cough*. Others take the opposite approach, bypassing these tiny tweeters in favor of streaming the tunes to something a bit more robust.


Dubbed the Party in a Box (yes, really), this speaker dock from Soul Electronics—Ludacris' audio equipment line—has enough clearance to directly accommodate an iPad but also offers three other means of connectivity. It's AirPlay compatible, has Bluetooth connectivity for streaming from non-Apple sources, and even includes a 5.8GHz transceiver that can stream uncompressed CD audio or allow the PIAB to daisy-chain in with other wireless speakers.

The included HDMI port lets you hook it the speakers up to a TV or projector for movie night while the balanced MIC channel allows the PIAB to pull double duty as a block-rocking PA system. The PIAB employs dual 6.5-inch subwoofers, two 3-inch midrange speakers and a set of four 1-inch tweeters. The entire system runs off a 110/240V power supply, 12V cigarette-lighter adapter, or its optional, rechargeable batteries. There's no word yet on pricing or availability.

It would certainly have to be 4:20 for me to see the real value in this thing. Then I would eat a donut.
