Freewheeler Speaker A Pricey Wheel Rolls In For Priceless Audio Treat - Born Rich
Before you write off the Skullcandy Pipe iPod Speaker as yet another gimmicky dock that saves space but doesn't quite deliver where it counts (sound quality and volume), hear me out. Yes it's suspiciously small, fits all-too-conveniently on your living room mantel or dining room windowsill without toppling off, and appears to be a too-perfect-to-be-true source of your holiday gathering ambiance music, but take the time to consider that maybe there's no fatal bug that renders it unworthy of purchasing. The little fella really does get loud despite its compact size and has the ability to sound great whether it's serving out gentle seasonal tunes to accompany the sounds of your meal-munching or filling the room with dance-worthy beats once your relatives have had a little too much eggnog. Plus, with its handy remote you can switch things up even from your food coma-induced collapse on the couch!Price: $69.99Who Found It: xgalexy was the first to add the Skullcandy Pipe iPod Speaker to the Hive.
If you're having a hard time getting in tune with your inner Santa Claus this gift-giving season, consider a foolproof present that won't go in one ear and out the other. Music gifts -- speakers, iPod accessories, memorabilia, USB gadgets, you name it -- are something nearly everyone can appreciate and enjoy, but even if you have a hardcore musicophile or musician on your list, it's fairly easy nowadays to find a unique music gadget gift that won't end up in their "return" pile. If you've got a serious music collector on your hands, consider gifting a vintage vinyl record they can add to their library of retro tunes. Or, if you have a musically-inclined friend or family member who can't be separated from his or her Wii system, refuel their addiction with DJ Hero, the latest in the series of melody-making gaming. Check out the slideshow for the rest of the music-related gifts that musicians and their fans can enjoy!
