"immediate value and use" Who is to say I don't think this is a immediate value and that I will get a shit ton of use from it? I work in a salon. We get one fucking station. It's country. Enough said. Now if I had one of these and brought it into my chair I could stick it to anything and get music. Hell I could prob slap it right onto the hood dryer so my clients have music under there for a half hour.
And that's great! But why are you dropping $20 on something that just rattles surfaces? I'm not complaining that you want to play music, I'm saying that this rattling speaker suppository thing is not the thing to do it.
I am a VERY techy kinda gal. I love toys. So this would not be just sitting in a drawer.
I do too! But I have a lot of toys that seemed "oh neat, this gizmo does COOL THINGS" at the time, but when I got them they ended up as "wow, this is not so great..." Things sit in drawers not because they're something I wouldn't want
to use, but because they end up outclassed by something that does the job better. Like getting a dull knife versus a sharp one.
PS why not give the gift of kick ass music on the playa!? not every one wants to hear dub step,techno, house ect all the time. What if i want to break out a bit of Ella or BB king? Little tiny speakers just aint going to cut it!
DO IT! But just like you're
telling me: "little tiny speakers just ain't going to cut it!" Look at that thing. It's a little suction cup attached to some tiny cord powered by two AA batteries (or are they AAA batteries?). Do you think you're going to get much sound out of that? You'll only get, at maximum, the same amount of audio power as you put into the device. It doesn't matter how big a surface you attach that thing to, it's not going to produce "big sound."
Worse, even if that Rock It did have good power delivery, it's not constructed like a real speaker that is made to make the most of the power going into it for conversion to sound. Do you know what happens when you use an underpowered speaker, especially one with a diaphragm (the part that vibrates the air) that had a lot of mass? It has distorted and deadened sound. You can't vibrate surfaces fast enough to make high-volume high-frequency sound (the treble), nor move enough air for any decent bass. This is why speakers are made of thin paper, not car hoods or window panes. So what do you get? Annoying radio-esque music with little bass, muted treble, and resonances depending on the shape of the object. Listen to the video you posted: does that really sound good?
Sure it has volume, but volume doesn't mean it sounds good.
So yeah, crank that BB King! But crank it on something good! Crank it on a real speaker that people will want to hear. You're doing your music an injustice
when it sounds distorted, tinny, and hollow. This is why I'm saying that this Rock It thing will be sitting in a drawer: you won't even want to listen to it. You'll probably bring something better, or someone else will have the better speakers and you'll gravitate towards that. You could drop the money on a speaker equally as portable and cheap that sounds better like this
(this is not an endorsement). You could "invest" more money into something even bigger and powerful, and even set it on a counter at your salon so you can actually produce sound that will defeat the "All my exes live in Texas" streaming over the radio in that salon.
