Merchandise Monday: Intriguing Audio

Yamaha RestioCan you hear that? Your favorite song just came on Internet radio while you work. Maybe you’re cranking some thumping beats to help energize your run. Or are you playing soft sounds to lull your babies to sleep? Whatever the case may be, music plays a huge role in everyday life, whether or not you’re even aware of it.

Today we’re highlighting several new audio items that have been added to Hinda’s assortment this month that have really caught our eye. What’s interesting about these items is that not only do they provide great sound for all your listening needs, but they have additional functionality and aesthetic appeal to boot.

Grace Digital’s Eco Terra Rugged and Waterproof Boom Box

Forget John Cusack in “Say Anything” – this is not your typical boom box. The Eco Terra Boom Box is a floating waterproof iPhone®/MP3 player case which is fully submersible in water. An internal waterproof storage compartment holds and protects your keys, MP3 player, credit cards, driver's license and cash, keeping it safe from sand, sun and water. A uniquely designed exterior pressure release valve ensures your case is closed airtight and easily opened at low and high altitudes. When thrown into the water, the Eco Terra case will rotate to float with the speakers pointed up so you can always enjoy your tunes. Enjoy the nostalgia of an old-school boom box without losing your street cred.

iPod® Nano with TikTok Multi-Touch Watch Band

You’ll have no excuses to skip your workouts when you’ve got this pair in your corner. The iPod Nano keeps you moving and grooving with your favorite songs at your fingertips. Shake to Shuffle lets you literally give Nano a shake and it skips to a different song in your music library. LunaTik®’s TikTok is a simple snap-in design that allows the user to quickly and securely snap the iPod Nano in and out of the wrist dock. It cleanly and simply integrates the Nano and transforms it into a modern, multi-function timepiece. With 18 different clock face designs to choose from, you can have a new watch style whenever the mood strikes you. Crank the tunes, strap on your Nano watch and get moving.

Yamaha® Restio™ Floor Standing Audio System

This is a speaker system like you’ve never seen before. The Restio is an elegant new floor-standing style desktop audio system that is entertaining, energizing, relaxing in the evening and invigorating in the morning, with sophisticated styling and superb sound. Featuring a built-in iPhone®/ iPod® dock, a CD player, a USB input, an FM/AM tuner and IntelliAlarm, it’s an endlessly enchanting companion. A thin body style and half-moon shaped stand allows you to position Restio right up against a wall. Restio also features a digital clock and looks more like a work of art than a speaker system. It’s sure to make a statement among your home décor and will be cause for conversation whenever guests come over.
