Plug it, Stick it, Rock-it! OrigAudio has come out with a great little device. The Rock-It is a portable vibration speaker system. It works similarly to how earphones works. The device sends vibration patterns though its pod and when you stick it on various objects, it transmits sound thus turning the object into a speaker.
When i received the Rock-It speaker, it came with a handy USB cable, an audio extension cable, four replacement sticky pads and the Rock-it itself. It requires (2) double AA batteries or the USB connection cord. As soon as i received it, i connected it to my MP3 and started sticking it on every surface near me. Some transmit better sound than others. I found it works well with hallow objects. The box it comes in worked pretty well, as well as an empty cardboard box, the refrigerator door and a couple others.
The Rock-It is compatible with any device that contains an audio jack, you can find them on mp3s, cell phones, laptops, etc. Not everyone carries portable speakers because of their size. The Rock-it is a little bulky, but portable nonetheless. Its great to have this handy when you want to rock out with your friends to some songs. I also have some places I'm curious about and want to go stick it on.. like a mailbox and a tree trunk (lol).
Pros - I love the fact that the Rock-it is very easy to use. The sticky pad, although you get some replacements, can be cleaned. It is perfect for me, because i really don't like transporting my speaker system (which has a sub-woofer) from room to room. I like listening to music while I cook, but its a hassle; all the plugging, replugging, transporting and what not.
Cons - Although it serves as a good alternative to my speaker system, the quality doesn't compare. I also think the encasing could improve a bit, it looks a bit plain. Another con is definitely the absence of a volume control. You can not control the volume with the Rock-it speaker; you can only control the audio on your mp3 or other device.
Overall all, OrigAudio's Rock-It speakers are very practical. I think these are great especially for college students in dorms. You'll have your friends taking it away from you to stick it on their favorite surfaces! OrgiAudio was kind enough to send me 4 Rock-It Speakers. One for review and 3 to give away to 3 lucky readers!
